Thanks for dropping in.
P.S. It was forty-eight degrees this morning, #whereartthouSummer?
I read on a blog somewhere long ago to warm up your place, put something on the walls. I've come to agree.
Something about wall art, warms the place up, makes it feel lived in, cared about, cozy. Only thing is, it’s hard to choose and can be pricey.
So, a few weeks ago, Kya and I made some wall art for her room.
Here is a pic of the inspiration, right outta Tarjay.
Here’s how we did it..
Acrylic paint, .80 cents
2 Posterboards, .50cents each
2pk sponges from the Dollar Store
I cut the sponges in circle shapes and we went to work. It was a “can’t really go wrong'” project.
Kya giving the sponge a good pressing.
After Kya completed the light pink and yellow, I went back with Hot Pink for effect. I also used the extra posterboard so I could monogram it. I went with a ‘K’ for Kya and a heart for the other side of the room, where her auntie sleeps.
Here they are in action. Are they perfect? nope. Do they make the room look nice, yep!
I like done, better than perfect, it’s my new philosophy, get up on it, it’s a game changer.
6:30 am – High School Bus, 11th grade
7:10 am – Middle School Bus, 8th grade
(Dad walked the boys to the bus stop, not so cool if your Mom walks you at that age, booo)
8:20 am - Elementary School bus, Kindergarten
I have one at each school in the District for this one year. Carazaay!
Hubbs being the Superstar Dad he is (insert sarcasm) wanted to send the kids off with a fresh and healthy start, by the time I came down he’d already drove over to a bakery and got the kids…
DONUTS, don’t get much healthier than that.
They enjoyed them.
Around 11a, I got this picture message from a neighbor.
I didn’t take my camera to the bus stop, I didn’t know how it would pan out, I was prepared for Kya to be hesitant, not quite sure about getting on that bus.
But the “waiver” you see is Kya!!! And to your left is her Daddy, ‘trying’ to get a kiss goodye, Kya just sighed, “Daddyyyyyyyy” – she was NOT trying to miss that bus. And off she went, never looked back.
It was a full morning, cheers to a new normal.
