Park with the boys

Spent an hour at the park last night. Trying to force myself to use my camera for other things besides my etsy photos. I bought a telephoto lens for my canon t3 and i'm pretty much in love with it. now i need to figure out how to use blogspot again...

so yesterday Loken broke out in weird bumps which i thought (and kind of hoped) it was chicken pox. but it wasn't.. went to the doctor today and its a bad case of the hives.. no idea from what! he looks totally awful and is so itchy! they told me to give him benadryl every 4-6 hours... poor little man!

happy new year!

part of my new years resolution, i'm going to try to blog more often.. i guess at least once a week! i always follow/read people but never post myself. things aren't to different around here since last time i blogged. but i did get some new glasses! my prescription changed of course, so now i have 11 pairs of glasses i can't wear, but 4 new ones. they are all perfect. i can see!
my son Loken is 18 months old now! time really flies. he has another cold right now (he looks sickly in that photo, lol) its really getting annoying bc it seems he gets better and two days later gets another cold, its been like this for over a month now! anyone else constantly sick? i want it to end.

anyways, small update, i think loken is waking from his nap. xoxo

my son is 9 months old! i can't believe it! time is flying by.

i decided it was time to update my mantle. it was collecting random things and was overall super ugly. for some reason my computer won't show the before picture, even though i've uploaded it twice from my camera. ?!?!?! i don't get it! anyways, before the 'fireplace' had one of those ugly fake wood gas things. i had my husband remove it and i painted the inside white instead of yucky black. 

 everything was mostly thrifted. those wooden thread spools took a long time to remove the thread! good thing my husband did it any not me ;) i thrifted the candle holder and glued it to the thrifted jar! the window picture had an ugly beach scene in it, so i removed that and used the cardboard pieces to modpodge the two fabric backdrops to cover the huge ugly mirror.

i thrifted that cool scrolly picture frame and removed the glass and sprayed it white. the man is from ikea and i thrifted that cool wooden sewing machine. i love how it turned out!
