♥ The Weekend Adventures of Chandler Bing ♥

28 Jun

“Mommy, I’m not scared of heights,” he says…

I say, “Mr. Bing, I know.”

“Mommy, but I like the cat grass,” he says…

I say, “Mr. Bing, I can see that. You killed it.”

“Mommy, I want a nap,” he says.

“Thank Goodness,” I say.

“Mommy, Chandler Bing is an idiot…”

“I know, Mr. Wee. I know…” I sigh.

Re-Living My Childhood ♥ Part 5

Copa Cabana!

 

My parents have finally made a blog for their Cabana (well, I made it, but still…) I think it’s so CUTE! You should go be friends with them now, so that they have followers. I’m trying to walk my mother through the blogging process, hopefully she learns quick!

The Story

This is where I grew up: Fishing, swimming, wakeboarding, and of course writing! I was a lucky girl – blessed!

I wouldn’t trade anything for the memories I have from this place. I still remember it before it was ever remodeled: Horrid blue glass. Blue. Blue. Blue!!!

My favorite part is the port holes in the floor where you can see through the glass to the fish under the house. The waves at night lull you to sleep, and I love the kitchen!!

This is just the guest house, but to me it was my play house!

 

Re-Living My Childhood ♥ Part 3

21 Apr

 

Well, todays “re-living’ post took me a little longer than I expected. Props to kids for knowing how to put this stuff together.

I guess at some point I knew how to put it together, too! I tried to find directions, but I guess the model is too old for it! Now they have some fancy NEW barn…

Well…

Mine is still better!

Shall we?

Playmobil Horse Barn

 Well, despite the fact that I found a half-eaten lollipop in the box (and yes, I’m quite sure it’s at least ten years old…)

 

and the fact that it took me almost and hour to figure it out, with a whole pile of leftover pieces (I’m pretty sure I’ve mixed the western barn with the english barn… but oh well.)

It still come out beautifully!

The Story:

My dad used to bring me a piece of Playmobil home every time he went to New York on business. He’d go to FAO Schwartz and I LOVED it… Based on the ten giant moving boxes I have, he went a lot!

Here are my pics!

Yes, I have an Elephant on my far. He has one ear, luckily he’s showing you his good side!

I even had the horse trailer and Jeep! Cats, pigs, baby cows…

I don’t think I’m going to get sick of this!

Idle Hands doing Not So Idle Things…

15 Apr

I had an immense amount of nervous energy yesterday, so I decided to do something about it!

I re-painted and re-organized the bathroom!

It used to have flat paint, and let me be the first to say that flat paint NEVER works in a bathroom. All the water flying around leaves some serious stains on the walls! Always get a paint that can be washed, like eggshell finish.

Here is the before Image:

Here is the after:

Not that much different, just tidy and clean! I love tidy and clean.

Do you like my sink? I made it myself! I went to an antique store a few years ago and bought that mahogany dresser for $100. My husband modified the drawers to work around the piping, and we bought a basin sink from overstock. I love it! total cost was around $200, which is a steal considering buying a vanity cabinet (just the cabinet) is $400. Trust me, I did that in another bathroom…

Coming later today:

I’m starting a new posting series, so be sure to check back!
