Link to Before & After:  DIY Vintage Painting Headboard

Right after we first moved into our house, our yard flooded into our neighbor's yard and garage.  Ben went over to introduce himself,  help clean up and apologize.  He returned with this painting. He said that she asked him if he liked it and mostly to be polite, he said yes.  She went on to tell him that her daughter in law painted it and she hated it but had kept it up for years.  We decided that we couldn't get rid of it. A year later I had an idea. Ben and...

Link to Brunch in Bed is the best!

I had a fun long weekend.  Yesterday morning my husband went to City Bagel with our house guests and when they returned he brought me my brunch in bed.  My lazy sunday consisted of  a wonderful brunch,  a little Google reader catch up, a mini nap in my hammock and making a kite with Ben.  I couldn't have asked for a better day or a better husband.

Ben is pretty great and he understands my need for City Bagel after a long night.  It's a fact, City Bagel...

Since I am from Columbus, it is easy to forget how nice it can be sometimes.  On Saturday, Ben and I had a fun little afternoon in Columbus.   We started off by going to Palmer Home Thrift Store, which is by far my favorite local thrift store.  Next I took Ben to see the Tombigbee  River and the old river bridge downtown.  In high school,  some nights we would climb over the walls that blocked off the entrance to the bridge and walk around on the old bridge like rebels.  Now the bridge is open for all to enjoy,...

This past weekend, Ben and I went to Lake Charles to visit Kirby, Dawn, Danielle and Kyle.  It was a fun weekend filled with strawberry beer, better thrift stores, 2 sweet dogs, a super hero poet (really a poet who writes about super heros among other things),  lakes a plenty, great food and friends who live too far away.  When we got home, I was overjoyed to find these flowers waiting on me. I love that the previous owners of our house planted these bulbs.  Honestly I need to plant some more.  They put me in...

This past weekend, my sweet husband surprised me with a date to the Jackson Zoo while on our way to his show with The Devil, You and Me  at The Boxer and the Barrel in Houma, LA.   Since the trip takes about 5 and 1/2 hours, Ben decided to surprise me by stopping at the Zoo to stretch our legs.  It was really fun and romantic.  Ben knows how much I love a zoo.  He is such a great husband. After the Jackson Zoo, we went to the Eudora Welty Home.  Unfortunately you must...
