Rockin Pink Highchair!

Spring has sprung EARLY in New York and what better way to celebrate than getting your spray paint on!??!  Cranked Bob Marley and soaked in the sun at the same time.  I swear spray paint is like my drug of choice and its been waaaaayyyy too long since we had a date like that!

I have had this highchair in the attic forever, remember this one I (err I mean Santa) made for Emerson..well I had grabbed a spare at the time too! 

Before                                                                                              After!!

Sorry for the super crappy phone pic..The color is glossy watermelon! YUM-O!

My super awesome, wonderful and talented photographer friend Jenn will be using this as a prop for shoots!!! Book with her now before she fills up, I promise you will NOT be disappointed!  You should check out her amazingness for yourself!  Here & Here and of course on FB!

M.I.A. lately!

I have been so bad lately about getting this blog updated, other than weekly menus - since lets face it, we have to eat every week and I love to cook...nothing major to report, just BUSY....working, 2 kiddos and life in general keeps things hopping all the time!!! I am lucky to have great friends who I get to spend time with, squeezing in girl time lately which is so needed, even though you get old, you never get too old for girlfriends!! 

I am seriously over winter and ready for spring and nicer weather.  This winter has been mild but still ready for no more boots, coats and layers of clothing! 

I have been working out like a maniac lately and being encouraged by friends as we work to get our butts in shape for the Dirty Girl Mud Run coming in September! 

I promise projects and fun stuff to come...its almost good curb shopping season, I can smell it in the air I swear!!!
