Throw Back Thursday - The Weekend I Painted My Kitchen Cabinets White!

Indulge me while I go back, way back, when I first started this blog.  It kinda started when I decided one Mother's Day weekend to paint my kitchen cabinets!  Read all about it here, for my edition of "TBT - Throw Back Thursday"!

I Painted My Kitchen Cabinets White!

It been 3 years and my cabinets are holding up pretty good. I do perform a little touch up here and there, but for the most part, I am still very happy with them!  It was a LOT of work, and I can honestly say...I DID IT! 

Have you painted your kitchen cabinets?

Garden Lights

This picture found on Pinterest was my inspiration!

I found 2 brand new, unopened packages of miniature random sparkle lights (150 lights each) at the Goodwill for $2.99


I did this on Memorial Day-Monday evening. Right at dusk they came on with a timer set to other outdoor lighting!  I have the timer set to stay on for only 2 hours.  Of course I can always change that if needed. I must say I like it! It REALLY brightens up that corner of the yard! Hope these hold up through summer! Photos taken with cell phone, so....

New patio chairs, plants growing and other stuff

I've slowly been trying to get the backyard in order after a long winter!  Here's a few pics of what's really going on in my backyard!  

Everything is trying to grow!  I'm sure my "Grow Dammit" sign is helping!  Found a pack of different signs for a garden at the Goodwill for $1, this was one of them! 

Onions, tomatos and peppers in small garden. 

Banana plant has comes back every year so far!  This is year 5 after taken completely to ground in the winter.

New Lemon Tree is growing lemons!  Yeah!

I hope to lay mulch this evening when I get home from work.  Especially around the mint that I plant on the patio edge.

We will see.

Babe grilled steak Sunday.  Grill'n & Chill'n were we!

Got new patio chairs at Big Lots on Friday.  They were only $18 each!

Hope you have a wonderful week!

Monday Morning Blues!

I had a Wonderful Mother's Day!  I spent the weekend with my Babe, my Daughter and my new granddaughter Aaliyah!  She is PRECIOUS!

Warning:  Picture Overload!

They went home last night.  :( 

Of course Grandma is weary! :)  

But had a WONDERFUL visit celebrating daughter's first Mother's Day!  Hope you had a great weekend too!
