Taste Of Madison:: Thirsty Jones::

Happy Tuesday Everyone! I am a little delayed with this post but I have been trying to track down the few photo’s that I have to share. Over Labor day weekend Cory and I were given the opportunity to go to Taste Of Madison:: boy was that an interesting experience… over 100 food vendors and 3 stages all surrounding the Capital Building downtown Madison… We ate our way through, lounged on the grass and listened to music in the 90 degree weather.. it was a beautiful day and lucky for us we were able to watch my best friend Kirstie Kraus perform as lead singer/songwriter of Thirsty Jones! Opening for Chase Rice!! They did an amazing job hosted by Q106 and wow did they rock it : ) I am so proud to call her my best friend… she is continuing to amaze me with going to Nashville multiple times a year to write songs and network… I wish her the best of luck and I know she is going to make it BIG! (I only had my phone with me so you have to excuse the clarity of these photo’s)

Master Bathroom Transformation Part 2::

Hello Darling’s! Hope you all had a great weekend! We spent our’s hanging out mostly around the house, Miller (our loving family dog) had surgery and is in recovery… poor thing doesn’t know why… but it was necessary and he should be better in a few weeks… anyway’s I have finished painting the master bathroom and everything is coming together nicely.. still need to change the floor to a neutral tile and redo the old outdated shower by getting it tiled and adding a new glass door to make it more modern… also considering painting the trim white just to make it look fresher… still a work in progress but I am really happy with how it is turning out thus far! The mirror needs a bit of help- thinking of framing it in before we add the small tile back splash : )

What do you think?!

If I paint the trim white I will also ask Cory very nicely to change out the outlets to fresh new white ones!


wall art that I found on sale at Shopko…


Love the way everything is warmed up


Still loving the new cabinets!!!


our amazing new sink and faucet that I am obsessed with : )

Stop by again soon for another exciting post!

Green Bay Packer- Season Game::

Hello Everyone, Cory and I were given the opportunity to tailgate and attend this past Sunday’s Packer Game against the New York Jets… it was such a beautiful sunny day- we couldn’t have asked for better weather. We had such a great time with family and friends and look forward to the opportunity to attend another winning game in the future. : )

I am loving the slight crisp weather and the start of apple crisp season… we have been getting lots of landscaping done around the house in preparation for the winter months… lot’s of hard work but well worth the final result!

The Start of Something Great::

Hello! TGIF Everyone! The weather has officially starting into the crisp cool air of autumn and a little part of me is happy to dust off the boots and trench coats, but on the other hand I am really going to miss running out the door with a sundress and sandles… but it is that time of the year when all you want to do is pile on a bulky sweater, drink hot cider and read a good book! What are your favorite autumn traditions?

I have been working on creating our basement room into a bedroom/craft/office space and in the beginning planning process decided it was high time I create some small DIY artwork on canvas to add to my collection of my photography art I have planned for the space- mix thing’s up a bit… not all prints from my collection but a few new refreshed pieces of art to add to the beauty and make everything pop!

Without further ado…


What I used for this quick afternoon project- 2 8 X 10 Canvas’s- black spray paint I had left over from another project and just over 1 300 pack of gold thumb tacks : )


First I sprayed them both black making sure to get all 4 sides as well


Next I taped one with painters tape and created a chevron inspired design to spray with Krylon Gold Plate spray I had left over from the wine bottles I did for Amanda’s Bridal Shower last month!


Removed the tape and look at that! an easy DIY piece of art that will for sure add a pop once I get the room put together-


With the other I simply took a pencil and free-handed a cursive L and followed the line with the gold thumb tacks- followed by another row on top of the first and below the first lines creating a 3 row width and using a hammer to smooth down the edges of the tacks that were into the wooden frame- So simple and makes a bold statement!


Voila! More to come on the room later! I am in the process of redoing a desk and painting the room : )

Come back again soon for more DIY fun and I promise to get back into my fashion side as well!
