May Highlights

Happy Monday everyone! The month of May for us has been a crazy busy one! We did something different every week and we got a lot of things done that we had planned to get done in this past month. I'll let the pictures tell the story.

At the very beginning of the month we did trim work on our entry, dining room, and upstairs hall way. (finished pictures coming soon). This took about a week because we did it ourselves and let me tell you... It was NOT easy!! I don't know HOW many times John had to cut and re-cut the corners and the stair part to make it look perfect. My job was to seal all the nail holes, sand, and paint-- the painting was the most time consuming because I had to apply a ton of coats to get a nice bright white and a smooth finish. But we love working and building together so in the end it was fun and we both had a blast.

You're probably wondering about these old, dirty, ugly, windows.
My dad found these old windows somewhere out in the country and brought them home for me to re-finish. Funny thing is, I've been looking for old windows to re-do for a very long time and never found them. (My dad knows me well.) I will have a post of these beauties very soon because I got working on them as soon as I got them.
Here is a sneak peek of my living room re-decorating. I got a new rug and some new furniture that I will show as soon as I bring them all together.
One of my big projects this month was to build a headboard for my guest bedroom. Here is a little sneak peek of that.
We planted a garden!! It's not big; but we didn't want to plant a ton of stuff and for the plants to end up dying, but it's actually doing very well! We planted tomatoes, bell peppers, cucumbers, yellow squash, and jalapenos. All the plants are growing very nicely, I will update on the progress.
This month we also celebrated my first Mother's day and John's gift to me was a fig tree that he planted for me. Now, you're probably thinking..... wow... he bought you a tree?! It was the most perfect, romantic and thoughtful gift, and here is why... I absolutely LOVE figs and I craved them more than anything while I was pregnant with Luke. I wanted to grow a fig tree but I could never find the plant to buy. But John took care of everything, he found a store that carried the tree and planted it for me as well.

Last and certainly not least. Here is my little peanut-- he is growing and changing so fast! I try and savour each moment with him and John. Luke is almost 6 months, we started him on solids this months and he absolutely loves food. YAY!!
 I hope you all have a wonderful, fun, and safe month of June!!
