Hello.

I have slowly (I mean really slowly) been trying to add some wall d├ęcor to the front porch. Don't ask me why it is taking so long!

Anyway, I recently purchased a this adorable vinyl lettering for my front door. How cute is that?! However, when I had to pick out a color, I decided that I liked white the best. Believe me, Dane got a chuckle when I told him I bought white vinyl for our white door! I was really just planning on painting the door some pretty color, which also made him laugh! That is when I decided that I would put it on the wall in the front porch.



It had crossed my mind briefly when I was picking out the color of the lettering, but I really thought it would look cute on the door. Now that it is up, I think I should just pretend that it was planned for the porch all along...it looks amazing. The white vinyl matches the trim perfectly, and looks great against the jade wall.

I am planning on adding a few other things to this wall. I think that a grouping of small items will look nice. I have my eyes on this key hook from Target (and everything else in the Young House Love collection), and I thought that a white frame would look great with it.

In other news, we have started some bathroom renovation projects! Dane came in the house the other day with a sawzall and said, "I am going to cut a whole in the bathroom wall." I was pretty darn excited!

Spoonflower

I love buying fabric. It is kind of becoming a problem...I have a pretty large stock pile of fabric that I "had to have", and I haven't found a use for it yet. However, that hasn't stopped me from looking for more fun fabrics to buy for future projects.

I recently found Spoonflower, a website that has tons of great fabric...you can even design your own! I have been trying to dream up some projects for some of my favorite fabrics. Anyone need a baby blanket covered in whales?!

Here are a few of the fabrics that I am smitten with!


Are you in love yet?!

There are just so many options! If you come over to my house and find it full of colorful throw pillows, don't be surprised!

You can find a couple of my sewing projects here, here, and here.

Spring



Gosh...I haven't written a post in FOREVER! The weather has been so nice, and I have been busy running, taking pictures, cleaning, and planting watering tulips. (It absolutely made my day to see these blooms!) Plus, Dane and I have been working on some fun projects that I plan to share very soon!

Hope you are all enjoying this beautiful weather!

Happy 25th Birthday!!!!







Today is my amazing husband's birthday! When we started dating he was just 16! Can you believe that?! We have come a long way. I have loved the 9 birthdays that we have been able to celebrate together, and I can't wait for all the birthdays to come! 


God created the perfect husband for me when he made Dane Fletcher! I am so thankful for this day...the day of his birth, and all of the other days that have brought us together. He is one of the most caring, loving, generous, hard working man that I know. He has a heart of gold. He is extremely responsible, but he is not afraid to be silly. He is everything that I wanted and needed in a husband, and deserves to have the greatest birthday ever!

Home and Garden Show



Last weekend I went to my first ever home and garden show! I probably don't have to explain to you how absolutely excited I was about this! And let me tell you, it was amazing! I still cannot figure out how they pull it off. I was so distracted by everything that I didn't really take a ton of pictures! (SORRY) Needless to say, my to do list has probably tripled in size! Number one on my list...figure out where I can use this wooden wall tile (pictured above) in the house! Isn't it lovely!?




I will certainly be going again next year! However, I will be bringing Dane with me...get ready, babe!

Smoothies!

If you follow me on Instagram, you have probably noticed that I have been making TONS of smoothies. I just love how refreshing they are, and they are so easy to make! I have an Oster 20oz personal blender that is perfect for making smoothies! I usually try to use different ingredients everyday! I just add some frozen fruit a vegetable (usually spinach or avocado) and a little bit of natural fruit juice! 




This one has mango, spinach, and orange juice...it is one of my favorites!



I am also in love with The Mason Bar Company! I recently purchased a mason jar tumbler, and I love it! It is perfect for my smoothies!

Happy Valentine's Day

Are you guys tired of Valentine's Day posts yet?

Today we had a little carry-in at work, and I decided to whip up a quick and easy heart-themed treat for the holiday! I got this recipe from Jessica at Little Baby Garvin, and I have made it several times! It is just popcorn, almond bark and anything else you can dream up! I have added pretzels, m&m's, candy corn, chex...the options are endless! Just stir melted almond bark into the popcorn (and pretzels or chex if you are using them), and spread it out on some wax paper. While it was still wet, I sprinkled heart-shaped sprinkles over the mix, and then I just let it dry. Once dry, I broke it up and was ready to serve! This little snack is always a hit! 




Happy Valentine's Day! I hope you guys all have a wonderful day, and if your area is getting snow, please be careful! Love you all!
