Hey everybody, I hope you're having a great week! My week has been pretty crazy (or so it seems) between finishing due assignments, preparing for a five day club etc, etc, etc=) I taught the bible lesson on Jephthah, (I'd never heard that story before!) and Hannah helped out with it. She dressed up as him (beard, bible costume and all!) and I get to interview her!  (She is so funny!=)

This week, I decided to change my room theme (from the accent color gray/chevron) and make the accent color a peachy-coral! I got sheets, and rearranged my room, and have been coming up with some fun ideas!

I also found some fun fabrics at Joanne Fabrics, so I'm pretty excited. One of them is lacy and white, and the other is a kind of burlap. I found the fabric on sale, and only paid 12.00! Yeah for sales!
Here is a picture of one pillow I sewed out of them. (Man, was this hard fabric to work with!)

Here is a picture of the other fabric!

 I am excited! Since I rearranged my room this Saturday, I have some more ideas (yes, I know, I know) although I haven't exactly finished all my other "in progress projects":)
Here's one I hope to work on this week! I found the idea on (surprise, surprise) pinterest!

Make a rug out of any heavy weight fabric and a rubber mat! wow!!!

I found a tutorial off  the blog "all parenting" It's instructions on how to recover old rugs! I'm gonna give it a shot this week! Hopefully it won't end up in one of those pinterest fail websites=)

Thanks for reading!

Another Random Post....=)

Hello! I hope you all have had an amazing week! Wow. I can't believe it's spring break! (well, in like 12 hours) I'm excited. I'll have to finish up some homework before I'm officially off, but I am excited!
As many of you know (probably all of you know!=) I've been in the process of re-decorating my room (sooo much fun!!!!!!). Here is my newest completed project: A chalkboard wall! I found white chalkboard paint too!!!!!

 Before/starting the first coat:

After the first coat:

The completed project after FOUR (long, long, )coats:

My goal for this wall, since it's right across from my bed, is to make it a quote wall (using magnetic paint or a cork board./verse of the day/ (chalkboard) calender/planning wall. We'll see how that turns out! I got the idea from a magazine!

Another thing I'm excited about is the father daughter banquet tomorrow! I got my dress from good will, and I love it! (whenever I find a good deal, I get excited!)
Here's a picture!

So anyway, I'm pretty excited! I love empire waist dresses!
Thanks for reading,

Family Movies I Love

The Ultimate Gift (2006) Poster

It's hard to find a good family movie these days! Here are a few of my personal favorites!

One of my all time favorites is 'The Ultimate Gift.' 

Story line: Jason has grown up in a wealthy family all his life. Spoiled, and selfish, he doesn't know the true meaning of friendship, hard work, or sacrifice... Until his billionaire grandfather dies. In order to receive his inheritance, he must complete a series of tasks that unknown to him, each teach the vital lessons of hard work, generosity, and putting others first.

For a complete review go to:

Another family favorite:

'Gifted Hands'

Story line:
Gifted Hands tells the story of Ben Carson, one of the most gifted neurosurgeons in the world today.Growing up in an impoverished neighborhood, and in a mostly white school, it tells of his struggles to beat the odds, and his victories in medical science.

Another of my favorites:
'The Kid'

The Kid (2000) Poster
Story line:
Bruce Willis plays an unhappy and disliked image consultant. Then, an eight year old version of him appears, changing his life forever. The lies that shaped his life ever since he was a kid are beginning to crash to the ground. His life will never be the same again.
