Momma and daddy came to visit and momma and I have been dying to try chalk paint. I started by painting my table with the Annie Sloan old white chalk paint. After 2 coats and a lot of touch ups it looked like this.
Way darker than I wanted so after getting a tip from Tara to add more clear wax to get off Some of the dark wax it started looking more like I wanted it to. The last thing I did was take a little paintbrush and go around the edges with dark wax to try to match them to the look of my kitchen island and vent. The final result...
Last thing we did was recover the chairs. I got the fabric at Hobby Lobby and momma and daddy cut them out and daddy stapled them on. We only have 2 done so far, but I think it is looking awesome!

We got two new nephews!! Lincoln and Coleman were sealed to Tessa and Page in the Idaho Falls temple. It was the coolest thing to witness and our Heavenly Father loves us so much.

After a quick trip to Texas, 4 root canals, my ac in my house going out (again), another quick trip to Idaho, and no fries with my whopper junior I was one angry white woman yesterday. And for the second time in 2 weeks I have gone in after someone else has clogged the toilet in a public restroom. What are the odds? 2 clogged toilets in 2 weeks?? I should have known it couldn't be good when the girl coming out was pregnant reeking of cigarette smoke and avoiding eye contact with those of us in the line. I wanted to scream when I saw it, but my teeth were floating and I had no other option but to flush and pray. It worked and holy Hannah we were saved, but not from my wrath. I told Jeebs about my good fortune with the 2nd pot in 2 weeks being clogged and he said I should play the lottery. The pot lottery- the pottery. I guess it's just karma because to be fair I have clogged toilets from Texas to Montana.

This is what I wore on Sunday and I thought it was awesome. I didn't get any compliments, but I only paid $16 for the skirt so I'm not taking it back. My top is from Target, skirt is from JCrew outlet $16 baby, and the belt is from Dillard's, pretty sure it was on clearance too. My shoes are old as methuselah. I got them at Belk in NC and I'm sure they were on clearance too because I don't pay full price unless I'm in love.
