My Favorite Things

Hi all!
I hope you are doing well.

Since my 1 yr blogiversary is on Friday, I thought I would share some of my favorite posts.

I thought I’d start with some of my favorite posts that are just about our everyday life.

Last January, we had some fabulous snow days in VA. Oscar LOVES the snow!
I got some great shots of him playing like a wild man outside.

Travis deployed to Haiti just days after the massive earthquake occurred. He is a FABULOUS writing and while he was gone he would send out updates of his life down there. I decided to post these updates on our blog. You can read them here, here, here, here and here.

Travis came home from Haiti at the end of March. It was a great welcome home celebration and then we had a welcome home party for him and our good friend who also was deployed.

Shortly after Travis came back from Haiti, he got promoted to Captain.

Travis graduated from Air Assault school this summer as well.

Now onto some of my favorite projects and my favorite recipe.

I love these Dalmatian Cupcakes and so does anyone else that has tried them. So good!!

My fall garland.
I love this because truth be told, I was TOTALLY winging this project and it came out SO cute!! 🙂

This picture plaque that I made for my grandmother’s birthday. She loved it and I am thrilled with how it came out.

My crepe paper rosette wreath.
It takes a lot of time but is oh so worth it in the end.

My little birdie shelf redo.
This thing was SO ugly but I got it for $12 and it is now a great storage shelf in my craft room.

Coffee table turned bench.
Both Travis and I worked really hard on this bench and it turned out great!

And I my favorite post, which many of you mentioned this as well, is my shutter wall decor.
I randomly had this idea and it ended up looking so good!
I still walk into my living and get all giddy when I look at it.

Thanks to all of you for joining me in my blogging journey. I appreciate every single one of you. I hope you will continue to take this big journey with me.

P.S- Catch a Glimpse party will begin tonight at midnight.
