Chalkworthy Paints Sewing Table Transformation and Giveaway

Hey All........
I hope this post finds you doing great?

Back to the school routine now, moving forward and making some changes.

Today I wanted to stop in and show you how my Singer sewing machine cabinet turned out. I was recently contacted by Ami at Chalkworthy to see if I wanted to test and review their line of Chalk Antiquing paints and of course I said yes.

I was going to paint a chair that I had downstairs for a while, but once I brought it upstairs I really started to like the little pop of color in my room.

That is when I thought about doing my Singer sewing machine cabinet instead, well......I am so glad I did.

We Have a Date for Kayla's Adoption!

Hey guys.....

I just wanted to stop in to give you a quick upstate on Kayla's adoption, you would already know if you follow me on social media but I wanted to announce it here as well.

We got the date yesterday (Friday) that we will be in court to finalize her adoption on September 1, 2015......

We are so excited that we have a date so the family can plan what we are doing before the end of the Summer.

I am glad it is before school starts so we can have her name fully changed before it starts.

Admitting Some Hard Truths

Hello all....... I hope this Summer day finds you all doing great.

Today I wanted to stop in and talk to you about something that has been on my heart for a while now, I guess not really wanting to admit it to myself but it has come the time to do so. Open up my heart to you readers of MsMoozys Open House.

This post is NOT about admitting to any failure, what I have learned with my years of blogging has been awesome and I believe it was the way it should have gone. But there comes a point when you know something is not really working or moving you forward with your life...... well at this point blogging it just that, not letting me more forward with my plan for my life.

A Simple Summer Time

A Simple Summer Time........

That is what my goal is for this Summer, though it did not start out that way.......

See the Lord has other plans for us this Summer, he knew what we all needed and he made sure it worked the way it should have......

I was so stressed that I could not get my kids into Summer camp this year, I had no idea how in the world I was going to get through this Summer having them home ALL DAY LONG but I have to say it has been great!

I wanted to get back to more simple living, simple home and good simple values. I am de-cluttering my home slowly, passing on what does not serve us any longer so someone else can enjoy.

My Dream "She Shed" Inspiration

Hey all........

Today I wanted do a post on "She Sheds". They are the new trend sweeping the nation that allow women to escape to their own personal private retreats, without leaving home.

WHAT? I just found out about these and would love to have one for myself. I can not see me ever really having one since the expense part of it but I can dream. 

I have put together a couple of options or what I like to call, inspiration sheds. I did notice that it is not as easy as I thought it would be to pick a favorite.

2015 Teacher "Thank You" Gifts

Hey everyone........

Here we are at the end of another school year, I started thinking about thank you gifts early this year and today the kids gave them to their teachers. Just one more thing checked off our list so we are moving in the right direction.

I have been hitting the Target Dollar Spot hard these last few months collection little things to keep around for the instant gift. I mean who couldn't use a sweet pen, note pad or bucket right.

Giani Granite Countertop Transformation {Review}

Hello all.......

Today I am stopping in to review a product that makes your wood or laminate countertops look like granite. Yes this is paint, believe it or not. Beware there are many pictures in this post........

Giani Granite let me test this wonderful product, complimentary for  review purposes. This is my unbiased opinion.

I was so excited when the product showed up in the mail, I was also very nervous  to try it...... worried I was going to "mess" it up. It really was a simple process, takes a bit of time but so worth it.

Juanita Stogdales Pound Cake {Recipe}

Hello all......

I did some baking the other day, see I have my Nanny's old recipe box and I was so wanting to try her famous pound cake. Worried, as I am not a  baker at all, but trying to learn more as the kids really love the home made treats. I feel better about giving them something homemade then something I need to research what the  ingredients are.

I do have to share that my Nanny was a great cook, awesome at hosting and always made you feel loved! I still look back at the times we would visit her in Virginia, thinking about the Summer days hanging out with family. So wish I could remember more since I was so young, though once a teenager it was not as much fun leaving my "social life" to hang with family......OHH how I wish I could get that time back.
