I'm home. But not for long.

If you are reading my blog today...can you go visit my favorite blogger? Today is his birthday!!

Happy Birthday, Honey!!!!!!

I'm back from a four day stay at my parents house. You know, you never want to over-stay your welcome...and since we'll be back there at least by Saturday...gotta have a couple days of a break. Air conditioner is still broken. 101 today says the weatherman who is not always right but tends to be at least within a five degree marker. Hmph.

But we have a lot to be thankful for! We found renters, we are alive, well, and making do in heat that could DEFINITELY be worse in the Valley. I got married when it was 107, I'm sure I can handle this. At least, that's what I've been telling myself.

So, my day has consisted of:

Ice cream.



Cold showers.

And a PROJECT! (You knew if I was back at home I was doing something, right?)

So, I'm sure if you have your nose ANYWHERE in blogworld, you've seen Uppercase Living or something like it. L.O.V.E. I.T. The great thing is, you can go on their website and get samples of quotes they sell...and then (With the help of a computer, printer, and exacto knife, of course.) And save yourself quite a bit of money!

The hubs has me on "spending lockdown" so this has forced my creative hand a bit. And with at least likeable results, I think:

How much do I love those windows next to my door? Go on, ask me how much...'cause I really, really love them. As in: XOXOXOXOXO love.

Here's a closer picture:

Anybody have wording around their house that they just love? I'm trying to think of something creative for the kitchen...that is in a language I can understand! :)

UPDATE: in Thursday) is DIY day at A Soft Place to Land...go check her out!


  1. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! How do you get it transferred like that? I would love to do something like that in my home!

  2. Looks great! And I think you should do mine!LOL! Wish I was in my new house, but I am doing my best to be patient, but my head is definitely getting full of ideas...mostly, thanks to you and your little projects! He He....stay cool....feel free to come and use the pool! B:)

  3. Hey Carrie, we are packing to move starting Sunday. However, your clan can come swim and enjoy our air conditioner. I might not even know you guys were here. My three crazies, boxes, boxes and lots of permanent markers. Yikes! Let me know if you want to hop in the pool and play for a bit. xoxo

  4. i know a gal (family of my family's husband or something like that) who does this out of her house and she's REASONABLE! she has ideas up on her blog!

  5. Awesome...I need to get an exacto knife :)

  6. Love it! and Love that verse! Also love those windows beside the door! Thanks for sharing!

  7. See, now, your lettering looks great. If I did that, I would have gone completely overboard, wrapping lettering all around the door and windows and room and...and...and... I'm neurotic. This is why I don't do the wall phrases. Love 'em, though, and yours looks great!

    I feel for you on the heat front - especially with your A/C out right now. We've been breaking records down here in West Texas.

    Thanks for stopping by! I love your blog. I hadn't seen it before, but will definitely be adding it to my feed reader.

  8. Oh, it so pretty! That's one of my family's life verses. I have it hanging in our home as well, but as a picture that was given to me as a gift.
    Thank you for stopping by my blog today and commenting.

    Have a lovely day.
