Had To Say

Anyone who knows and loves me knows and loves that my singing voice is "sub par" at best. But I love to belt it out in the car, in the shower, getting ready and especially when I'm hanging out with baby K.

This post is to mark a very special day in mom and kingston world.

We had a full day of playing with friends at thanksgiving point's tulip festival and later seeing aunt Ally and Dan for a delicious dinner (it pays to marry a Latino.. Thank you Ally)...we were on our way home when Kingston lost his cool and wanted to cry instead of clap his hands or coo back to me as I talk to him like he understands. Usually in these rare instances I just grit my teeth and find my inner calm Meghan which lets be real, doesn't really exists but tonight I tried something different.

There is a song by My Brightest Diamond called I Have Never Loved Someone and i have been whisper singing it to Kingston since he was a little teeny baby. Tonight, to sooth his cries, I started singing this magical lullaby to him louder than I ever have before. He immediately stopped crying and in a span of one minute fell fast asleep.

I love being a mom. I love being Kingston's mom. I am so lucky.

So to all those haters and make funners of my singing (including that husband of mine): I don't care what you think. My baby loves my voice and that is all I need.

Sweet dreams!

Next Revamp

Here's my next project. Don't freak it's going to be gorgeous!!!

Ps found this thing at DI!

My armoire update!

Okay so I'm dabbling in the furniture refinishing biz. Mainly for myself but I've already gotten a couple clients :) thanks friends! I guess what got me interested is pinterest. I mean let's be real, it's fun to look and dream of that huge mansion you have to fill with all those amazing pins youve saved. Most the stuff I've loved has been shabby chic and I kept telling myself I could do that myself! So I'm here to say, I CAN!! I did it.

Now I forgot to take a picture of my jewelry armoire before priming it but here's an example.

Now here is the after. Primed painted stained and distressed. Thoughts?

Well it's been a great day! Good week actually. Today my friend and i took the kids and went to a couple estate sales. Im oddly obsessed with finding good deals on anything and am in the market for some furniture to complete our guest room. One of my dreams is to buy old furniture and refinish it. I will be reupholstering a chair this year! Just you wait!

This past week was my last week teaching for three weeks! I will miss my kiddos and I have a long todo list of things to plan for school but I am so excited to be home with that adorbs baby of mine and play stay at home mom for a few weeks. The perks of being a teacher :)

We celebrated Jon's 27th birthday this week! Such an old man. He loved my present (custom golf shoes) and we went to a delicious dinner at Flemings steakhouse. He was oddly obsessed with nobody knowing it was his bday so we kind of kept it low key. It was nice and I just love that man.

Spring is here and although the past couple of days have been kinda rainy and chilly, this week should be sunny and warm! King and I will be frequenting the park and eating Popsicles.

Ally and Dans wedding is coming up soon too! My parents are coming out for a full week! I'm excited to have my family come and have a big enough place for them to stay :)

Life is just good.
