Project Updates

Here is an update on the first project I worked on before this past weekend. Jake's cousin, Lauren, is having a little girl who should be making her appearance into the world in about a week or so! As part of her baby shower gift, I made this to go in her nursery,which they are decorating in black & baby pink...

The quote says "Sent with love from the Lord above"

Jennings is going to be her middle name.

Then, for the second project I made some classroom artwork for my friend Kelsey.  Her school chose an "Under the Sea" theme for the coming school year so she is doing lots of nautical decorations...

The color in this one is kind of off...It's in a distressed wood frame.

I think my next couple of projects are going to be more with organizing.  I love our huge closet in the 4th bedroom/"man cave" because we can fit a ton it in and it doubles as my linen closet since we don't have one.  However, between sheets and gift wrap and a bunch of Jake's stuff it gets cluttered.  I found an idea on an organizing blog for the gift wrap, and then I have some ideas of my own for the linens.  Once I get around to doing those, I'll post some pictures!

My Five...

The other day at work, we were talking about people's list of 5...the five famous people that "given the opportunity" your spouse would have to give you a pass on.  It was a pretty funny discussion and the guys were saying that it's easier for men to make the list than women.  I guess it depends, but it got me thinking about who my five would be.  So, without further ado and in no particular order, here you go ladies...
Ryan Gosling
 Now, based on just physical appearance Ryan Gosling doesn't really do much for me. I am definitely more of a tall, dark & handsome kind of girl.  However, there is something about him that is just so darn sexy in his movies!  

Josh Hartnett

 This is my teenage crush that never went away.  I'd prefer he lose the mustache, but there is really nothing he can do wrong in my eyes...

Jason Lewis
We know him and love him from Sexy & the City, and even before that from his Tommy Hilfiger ads and appearances on many other television shows. 

Adam Levine
For him, I don't even mind the girl pants...

Sam Worthington
Because who doesn't like a guy with an accent?  Especially an Australian accent...

So, who would make your list?  

In other news...I am looking forward to a very busy but fun weekend!  Tomorrow I'm trying out Vogue Salon for a hair cut and a manicure, then headed to a baby shower for Jake's cousin Lauren (she's having her second child--a girl they're naming Payton).  After the shower is Reina's 1st birthday party!  Looking forward to hanging out with everyone and catching some of the Olympics!  Then Sunday is church and Todd's graduation party out at the lake.  It should be a very fun day and we are all so proud of Todd (he graduated from Lineman school today)!  I also desperately need to go grocery shopping at some point! I've already got the coupons ready so hopefully I'll get some great deals--I'll update later!
I was working on a little art project last night that turned out super cute!  It's a surprise right now so I'll have to post pictures later this weekend. 

That's all for now...   :)
