My Future Handyman.

The kids went to Pancakes with Santa over the weekend, the guys were showing up to start painting the house on Saturday so Oliver and I had to stay home and make sure they knew what colors went where. We have quite a few rooms that needed painting due to the water damage we had, but painting means we are nearing the end so I'm not complaining! I'll give a full reno update this week including flooring and furniture we picked out. Oh and Aiden sat on Santa's lap {for the 4th time this Season!!} and didn't cry, lol, just takes doing it over and over again. 

We ran some errands afterwards and hit the mall for a little Christmas shopping, I found the CUTEST curtains half off at Z gallery and I'm going to redo Madison's room for her birthday in April. The Baldish One also got his first tiny faux hawk, I cried just a little. 

Sunday it rained and rained so we slept in a little, I gymed, then we all put on clothes to go have brunch and grocery shop. 

We shop at Kroger mostly, I do love TJ's but it's about a 45 minute drive so we usually only go once a month or so. I paid freaking 5 bucks for those strawberries so y'all make sure I eat them all - mmmmmkay?

Look what else I found at Kroger! I've only ever seen them at Target so I got a bag, or three. I know I said I hated Quest bars, but I've been buying the Smores flavor, cutting them in small pieces and putting them in the microwave for 20 seconds - pretty dang good. 

Then Baby Aiden and I attempted to hang a Chandy in my closet, he enjoyed playing with the drill and I'm glad I didn't electrocute myself - but the chandy is not up. After a lot of cussing I gave up and I'm hoping the contraction guys take pity on me and just put it up for me ;) One day he'll be my little handyman and I won't have to do it myself! 


  1. I've actually seen Boom Chicka Pop at quite a few grocery stores lately here in NC. Food Lion and Lowes' Foods!

  2. Wow $5 for strawberries! Better eat those suckers! :-) BTW... any time I get in a discussion with someone about the tile flooring that looks like hardwood, I show them the pictures of your floors. Can't wait to put those in my own house!

  3. Aiden's tiny mohawk is so cute! So probably dumb question.. what what's a Chandy? a chandelier? I'm horribly un-hip. :-)

  4. Bake your smores quest bar! Put it in over on broil for like 2 mins and it's legit like a cookie. So yum!

  5. I hate how much the price of fresh fruit varies!!!

  6. Sadly, we are now paying just under $10 for Driscoll's strawberries in Alberta, Canada now. It usually drops to about $4 in the summer, but with our dollar being so low at the moment I don't think they will drop that low next summer.

  7. Hi Meg, I noticed the Think Thin bars in the pic you took at Kroger...I recently switched from Quest (which I thought were pretty dang good) to the Think Thin brand. They are normally on sale/cheaper than Quest, and the flavors are delicious (IMO) :) I am not a peppermint person, so I have not tried that flavor.

  8. 3 bags??? I just can't bring myself to pay $3.59 for a bag of the Boom Chicka Pop and it's only half full.

  9. Magnifier Engine Review

    When you hear people talk about "smart homes," they are merely referring to the way that you can control and monitor your home's systems remotely. You can check the temperature, turn down the cooling, make sure the doors are locked, and much more. If you want a smart home, you don't have to go out and buy a new home. You can make changes to your current home, adding and installing features that you can control with a computer, a tablet, or a mobile phone.


  10. Boom Chicka pop comes from my town and I have never tried it! I think I'm missing out...lol! It sure does smell amazing when you drive by it.


Make my day and leave me a love note!
