ONE. The Crafty Woman is Back in Business.
Who am I these days?? I’m turning into a major DIYer…or so I like to tell myself. Jeff even said he noticed a big difference in me lately wanting to do things myself. I know, CRAZY huh? This week, I decided it was well beyond time to paint one of the walls in the downstairs basement/family room and turn it into a giant chalkboard for
my girls me. Yes, I am a nerd and love this stuff too! I think it’s going to be a perfect way to work on teaching Caroline her ABCs. Even better, I talked tricked Jeff into taping and priming it for me…I know, this was WAY too easy! We started the whole process by painting it with a magnetic paint and then finished with this chalkboard paint (thanks for the rec Cami). It’s still “curing” for the next few days, but I’m ready to start drawing on it by the end of the weekend! Now only if I can have the finished product turn out like these creative spaces…
TWO. Back to MOPS, Round Two.
This Wednesday marked the first meeting of MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) for the 2013-2014 school year. I LOVED this program so much last year that I knew I wanted to sign up again…it’s been amazing as I have met so many incredible women and I can’t say enough positive things I have taken from spending my Wednesday mornings with moms going through the same stage of life as me. We had Leigh from Point of Grace
come speak to us, and sing a little too and it was incredible to hear her personal stories of tragedy, triumph, and her faith in God. If you’re a mom looking to integrate with other moms in your area, you can find info on the MOPS national site here
THREE. Salty and Sweet Treat.
I saw this recipe on Pinterest the other day and immediately stopped what I was doing to investigate the goodness in this salty/sweet concoction. Pretzels + marshmallows + chocolate + sprinkes=sign me up please! Not friendly on the calorie count, but sometimes you need to live a little 😉
FOUR. Fall Time Fashion…Comfy and Cozy
Dressing during the crisp months in autumn has to be my most favorite time…pairing warm sweaters and tailored tops with skinnies and boots is the epitome of all things fall and this year I am finding some new looks I want to try myself. Here are a few looks I am loving:
Five. Savor September
I assume a lot of you know who Lara Casey
is…the creative genius behind Southern Weddings magazine
and Making Brands Happen
. For those that don’t, she is someone you should get to know via the world wide web. She is one inspiring woman and is the most captivating writer I’ve found in quite some time. She is always coming up with these fantastic ideas…social media free weekends (which I need to try) and most recently putting titles on each month to remind us of what’s important. This month is “Savor September” and I am going to try to do just that. I want to savor each thing that comes my way this month and savor all the blessings from God. My wish is that you’ll do the same.
Another Five on Friday down in the books…funny thing about blogging is that I love how I can revisit past posts whenever I want for a trip down memory lane. Anyways, make sure to check out my other gal pals posts for today’s roundup-Darci

who co-host this lovely link-up with me. Have a great weekend lovelies!!
