It’s been raining here in Virginia Beach for what seems like an eternity. Yet only two weeks ago I was bragging about the beautiful fall skies. Shame on me for bragging too much about the amazing skies. Mother Nature has shown me nothing but grey skies for 10 days now. Vitamin D supplements have been consumed to combat any possibility of moodiness.
Instead of giving in to the grey skies, high winds, damn air, and puddles, I embraced them. I lit candles, turned on some tunes and went all Betty Homemaker! It was glorious! I made tomato soup from scratch…mostly from my garden and it was delicious!! We are still eating it and my tummy is very happy! I painted a little rocking chair fire engine red! It’s a happy little chair, isn’t it?! Oh and it was a thrifty endeavor!
Rocking Chair: $5.99 at Thrift Store
Spray Paint: $3 at Home Depot
Sand Paper: Already had
Damp Rag: Free

Since I had this happy little red rocking chair, I only needed a cute little boy who adores climbing to model with it and model he did!!
While he loved climbing on the rocking chair and
eating playing with the pumpkins,
his mama and I had fun documenting his 8 month pictures. His mom is so great at taking pictures each
and every month of his little life so far!
I can only hope that I am as dedicated with my future kiddos as she is
Totally Random…having a dirty baby diaper in my trashcan kind of made me happy. Oh and I was so proud of my little Lira puppy who belly crawled up to baby C man and sniffed him. She was wonderful with the active baby! Yay! I think Lira and I are both ready for some babies in this house!
Aside from these two creative endeavors, I hung out with friends, went on a spur of the momeny date with my hubby, and cuddled a ton with my puppy! She was in such a cudde bug mood and I ate it up!
