Diabetes Update

In case anyone's wondering, I thought I'd fill you in on the last couple of weeks. So if you want more details on the diabetes news, keep reading. Here's my first diabetes post.

The first week was rough. I was overwhelmed with the whole idea. I felt sick from the medicine. That made it hard to want to eat better, or at all, and I slept a lot. And that made it hard to want to do anything else, including exercise, which I know is even more important for me now that it was before. But I had people checking in on me with texts, calls, and even a sweet visit. I definitely felt loved!

Green Chair Makeover

I received paint for this project, but all thoughts and opinions are my own.

I've had this chair for several years, and it's been through a couple of makeovers already. It was time for an update, and I knew the current blue color would look great showing through a green top coat. Just for fun I also tried a video of the process, so you can watch that too if you want.

Easter is in March this year, so don't let it sneak up on you! I always look forward to decorating for holidays. I'm going to show you how to built a really easy and really cute centerpiece that would look great at your Easter dinner, or as decor starting today. 



(Though you may want to make sure it stays out of little hands' reach or those See's jelly beans and chocolates might disappear awfully quickly!)

Can't Even Drown My Sorrows in Ice Cream Anymore

I don't usually get super personal here. I like to keep it colorful, crafty, and full of vinyl and paint and washi tape. I also don't usually say "hey, sorry I've been super busy and haven't been posting as much." But this time I'm sharing.

I had gestational diabetes during my last pregnancy, about 8 years ago. I always knew that put me at risk for developing full blown diabetes later. I just always thought it would happen much later. Or maybe I'd be lucky. But it's caught up with me now, or finally presented itself anyway.


Painted Sewing Table

I received paint for this project, but all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Pink table painted with Country Chic Paint

As a new member of the Country Chic Paint Blog Squad, I'm excited to show you my very first furniture makeover I've done with Country Chic Paint. If you follow me on Instagram, you might remember this adorable sewing table I picked up from Craigslist for just $10. I love the shape of it and knew it would look pretty awesome painted.
