My 365 Photo A Day Project – Day 112 – Inspiration for days…..

That’s what I get when I walk into a Hobby Lobby store.  I see all kinds of projects and ideas that I “think” I can recreate….and some of them I actually do!

Here are the latest inspiration pieces I saw:

My 365 Photo A Day Project – Day 110 – A “marv”elous day…

Today is my husbands birthday and while I don’t need a special day to celebrate him it is always fun to do so!

We started off this morning by going to the Key Communicators Breakfast Spring 2015.

Dallas had something where they had these “BIG” signs and their thing was, BIG things are happening in Dallas.  You would take a pic with it and you would be the “I” in BIG.  Mesquite ISD has their own sign and it means:

Believe in the vision
Infuse rigor and excellence
Give your best

And so my hubby took a pic with the sign!

BIG

I love his enthusiasm and passion for life and willingness to do fun things!

We are celebrating with family next week so tonight I bought two little bundt cakes and sang Happy Awesome Birthday to him. ;)

Happy Awesome Birthday

Yes – my Easter stuff is still out on the table back there…don’t judge…haha!

When is your birthday?

Stay awesome y’all!! ~lisa

My 365 Photo A Day Project – Day 109 – Feelings about fabric….

Are you a quilter?  A seamstress?  Or just a crafter in general?  Well then you will know what it feels like to be in a fabric store and having to choose some fabric….there are too many choices!! 

And I wanted them ALL! 

Am I right? 

You know I am…..so I have a project that I am working on and as I was walking through the store two caught my eye.

fabric

I knew that they would be perfect for what I had in mind so….

two fabrics

Yes….they came home with me.  

What fabrics have you bought lately?  What projects are you working on?

Stay awesome y’all!! ~lisa

My 365 Photo A Day Project – Day 108 – It’s “Ben” awhile….

…since Ben, the traveling ninja, has made an appearance.  For some reason I just haven’t taken as many pics with him.  That will change and it has.

Starting today…

What things have you sort of stopped doing that you used to really enjoy?

Stay awesome y’all!! ~lisa

My 365 Photo A Day Project – Day 107 – Shake *n* bake and I helped….

Yard work is not normally my area of expertise but today I helped the hubby take care of business in the backyard. 

let's do this 

This is my “let’s do this” look.  Pretty convincing, huh?  ;)

Working together was fun….and we finished a lot quicker than when he does it by himself so that was a bonus.

What did you do today?

Stay awesome y’all!! ~lisa

My 365 Photo A Day Project – Day 106 – Miniature, fun-sized, micro, baby…..let’s just all agree it’s condensed awesomeness!

I love all things little.  Whether you call it miniature, fun-sized, baby….whatever label you want to put on it, if it’s tiny I like it. 

Because of my slight obsession with miniature stuff I was super excited to see this.

mini saltines

Just the fact that they are little mini saltines just makes me {{squeal!!}} and I seriously wanted to buy them just because they were tiny! 

Anyone else feel this way?  Or is it just me?  ;)

Stay awesome y’all! ~lisa

My 365 Photo A Day Project – Day 105 – Let’s “taco” ‘bout it…

My hubby grilled some burgers for us yesterday and a couple pieces of chicken so that I could make us some tacos for supper tonight.

I fried up some corn tortillas…..

taco shells

And stuffed them with the grilled chicken, some shredded colby cheese and topped it off with some picante sauce.

They turned out awesome and were so yummy!!

What did you have for dinner?

Stay awesome y’all!! ~lisa

I think they are so pretty and so fragrant.  They also happen to be my birth month flower and I’m particularly fond of the Stargazer Lily.

My 365 Photo A Day Project – Day 103 – OOTD and a first attempt at a t-shirt tote bag…

I went to a meeting today and then to MEPS and here is my OOTD (Outfit Of The Day)

ootd

I paired my classic white capris and white tank with a chambray shirt and nude shoes.  It fit the weather perfectly today!

This morning my hubby was going through his t-shirts like a crazy man and was pulling out a lot of them to donate and/or throw away.  I “salvaged” several from the pile to use in some projects that I’ve been wanting to try.

This project was a t-shirt turned into a simple tote.  Just some simple cutting and and tying it together and it was done!

t-shirt turned to a tote

I’m going to try it again and some other projects and will post tutorials if they turn out.  ;)

What did you wear today? 

Stay awesome y’all! ~lisa
