How do you use your time wisely?

Now with both boys in school Tuesday through Thursday I need to start thinking about my time management.  I make lists (then mis-place them) I use apps on my phone (then forget which ones I used) so I have been trying really hard to figure out what is going to work just for me.  I know that not everything works for everybody.  So it is going to be just trial and error.  I would love to know what does (and doesn’t) work for you!  Leave me a comment.

 

 

 

 

 

Friday Pinterest Favorites!

This week we have been doing a lot to prepare our home for new siding and windows… WOOP WOOP

so I will show you my favorites

I love this porch light – I want it a little “less shiny” though.  A little more of a rustic feel.

I do LOVE LOVE this but it may be a little too large of scale!  but I love the lines and feel.

I am almost positive this is the light we are going to go with. Find it here.

Now lets move on to the garage door…remember we are trying to stay on a budget 🙂

while staying on a budget this is BEAUTIFUL!!…find the link here and I believe a tutorial.

I know this isn’t very exciting or pretty but it is very practical and keep all the unwanted leaves and dirt out.

House numbers … there are SOO many choices.

I love how simple these numbers are….and so beautiful.  (I bet pretty reasonably priced too) find it here.

I love this too…a little more ornate-but still very beautiful. Find it here.

Time flies-if you blink you’ll miss it.

Seems just like yesterday that we were bringing him home from the hospital, as first time parents, not knowing what to expect…or even what to do for that matter.  Living 2 and a half to three hours away from parents..it was all on us.  I am thankful for a loving husband that provides for us, and believes in us day in and day out.

Fathers Day just came and went and what a great day of celebrating Daddy that was. DSC_0167

with a great race down in Albany…it was our first time there and definitely not our last!

Now it’s on to planning our first summer pool party of the year with our great friends…then 4th of July, then Grandpa’s birthday then #7 for Trenton.  (not to mention repainting garage door, underside of all our eaves, window seals, and ripping out our deck to get ready for NEW windows and NEW siding *woop woop*)
