{The Days of Our Lives}

Remember the soap opera as my granny would call it...."The days of our lives"? It may still come on. I have no clue. I never got into all the soaps. I often have said that my family could have our own TV show. Especially a reality show!  Well, my bunch might be too real! LOL. But, we do have our own..."days of our lives". Every day is new adventure.
 
Remember this cutie I found a few weeks ago at a Thrift store for $3.99? All this little gal needed was a good coat of spray paint and a home.


I named her Sweet Girl. She now sits in my little home office and keeps me company when I am piddling around in there. I think I'll change her little hats out often so she can match me! Some days I feel like I wear many different hats.  How about you? 



Enjoyed a day out with my daughters. Grandbaby #6 is due end of May so we decided before the pregnant woman doesn't feel like having a day out that we would all get pedi's, out to eat and do a little shopping.


My girl's sweet motherinlove joined us and we had such a fun day.



I had a very busy St. Patty's day working around the home but praise the Lord for a crock pot! I had all intentions on making some corn bread to go with our corn beef, cabbage, carrots and potatoes but decided after putting baseboards down in kitchen along with a zillion other things I needed to do I thought, "WHO NEEDS CORN BREAD".


Base boards are down. That is now checked off of my list! I am working on a bench makeover that I want to use in my kitchen too so maybe I can have pictures next week.

It's so good to be able to check off some things on my LONG list. 
 



This cutie was feeling poorly one day last week so of course Nana checked her out of school. Amazing how Zaxby's, some new lip gloss and a day at Nana's made her feel so much better. 
 


 I have used this chair for several decor props for Halloween and Thanksgiving but decided a new paint job was needed. The orange had faded badly.  A pretty shade of blue turned out perfect for a prop for pictures. I love SPRAY paint! It's magic! The youngest grandgirl will be turning 2 in April so we decided to snap a few pictures for her birthday. Can't wait to share a few of her pictures with you. 

Speaking of spray paint. Do you like to spray paint? I DISLIKE painting big jobs! DISLIKE, DISLIKE, DISLIKE! But oh, give me a small project and a can of spray paint and I feel like a magician! 

What's the last thing you have painted?

Give a woman a can of spray paint and she can conquer the world!  

I hope that you all have a blessed week.  Life is short so let's try to enjoy "The Days of Our Lives" as best as we can.

    1. Thanks Connie. I knew you disliked painting! I remember when you told me about painting your coffee table! I laughed thinking about that! Yep, I can't believe it's almost April and that baby will be here before we know it. I will send you a sneak preview of a picture with the blue chair!

  5. "God is Good", yes indeed HE is. smiles---Yep, as a Wife, Mom, College Student and squarely facing mid life (my 51st birthday is Friday) I wear many different hats, giggling.

  6. Your baseboard looks great and I love your floor! The corned beef looks delicious too. Love the blue chair! I'm much more into blue than orange. Now about that dress form! What a find that was. I think it looks spiffy in black lace and a hat! Won't you have fun with that! I have worn many, many hats over the years. My most important has been that of wife and mom. Now I've added Nanny to the mix and I love it! I so enjoyed your post and you are blessed to have another grandbaby on the way. There's nothing in the world like Family! Hugs and blessings...Sandi

    1. Thank you Sandi. Yep, I love the blue! I used the orange for a long time for decor for Halloween-fall-thanksgiving things. But that sweet blue was calling my name and I must say my little grandgirl looks adorable in that blue chair. LOL! Yes, many hats we wear as women. And I wouldn't trade a one of them!

  10. This was so much fun!! I love that Sweet Girl with the hat..that is perfect! What a great idea!! I also love spray paint! The last thing I painted was the bathroom towel bars, light fixture, and drawer/cabinet pulls, all a oil rubbed bronze, when I redid our bathroom. They turned out great, and saved me a bundle on new fixtures...I have some other projects in mind...now you have inspired me to get with it. Your daughters are so lovely...what fun you must have with them and all the grandbabies too! Amazing! So happy for you. And your sweet granddaughter must have really enjoyed being 'sick" with Nana. If I'd had a Nana like you I probably would never have stayed in school! LOL. We are all anxious to see your finished kitchen project. Such fun. Thanks for sharing the Days of your life...this was a fun one.

    1. Thanks Pam. I have actually thought about painting my kitchen hardware too. My husband says NO! LOL! He dislikes to paint. If the grands stay with me because they aren't feeling good they get waited on hand and foot so I almost wonder if maybe that's why they might have days they need to come to nana's. Ha!

  11. Glad you had a girls day out...and how sweet you were to help that sweet little one feel better. :-) I'm looking forward to more pictures of your kitchen. The last thing I painted? The trim in our mudroom...just last week! This week I'll be painting the trim in the bathroom. :-) Then I plan to put the paintbrush to rest. lol

  12. "Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives." Yes, I used to watch soaps when I was a teen and "Days of Our Lives" was one of my faves.

    Your "Sweet Girl" looks fabulous after your makeover. I gotta admit that I'm not much of a painter, but maybe that's because I've never tried spray paint!

  13. Yes, yes, to spray paint. I bought a resin statue at Tuesday morning for our Master Bath and it was a pewter color and I wanted it a bronze color so I bought the paint and sprayed away. She turned out perfect. You and your girls are just too cute! I can hardly wait to get some special time with my girl later this week. Hugs to you!

    1. Thanks Linda. Yep, I almost ordered that DNA kit once and then it left my mind. A friend of mine's husband done the DNA and then he started the ancestor hunt. I was amazed at the information he found. He said it was worth every dime he paid.

  15. Hi my cute friend. I never watched the soap either, but I sure do enjoy the days of our lives as well. You and your girls are just too cute! A fun day sounds the best!! We had our St. Patty's Day dinner yesterday. A day late, but it worked better for our kids. It sure was yummy! I love spray paint as well, but the last thing I painted was my French mug rack and I used chalk paint. I had it on hand. :)

    1. We did have a fun day out. Of course you know my girls, they look for any reason to do a day out or a party! LOL! I could eat some more of that corn beef right now and it's early. I like the chalk paint too. Last time I painted with it I actually made my own recipe and painted a small wooden box and loved it. That chalk paint can be pricey.

  16. I LOVE Sweet Girl, and she's a nice companion for you in your office, Cindy. Getting together with your girls and getting a pedicure was a fun time. Also, your little poorly feeling grand girl, sure had a fun time with Nana. Yes, to a can of spray paint, and I have quite a collection! Have a beautiful week, my friend. I'm looking forward to seeing more progress on your kitchen re-do. xx

  18. I had to chuckle about Days of Our Lives! My mother and daddy watched it for years. My mother called it her stories. I don't think she would like it now. They liked the patriarch and matriarch that were a model couple but their children were another story! That was 35 years ago. I haven't watched it for that long but I did see that it is still on as I flipped channels one day. Some of the same characters!
    You are a very busy woman and accomplish so much. I don't know how you do it.
    Your girls are so lovely. It would be wonderful to have that many daughters to do things with and keep you so young! How exciting to have another new baby. Nothing like that sweetness!
    Have a wonderful week. Spring has sprung here with blooming trees and scrubs.

    1. Bonnie, I stay busy but the truth is, I would be bored silly if I didn't. For the most part I always seem to have something going on. But, when you have three daughters and five grands and one on the way, there is never a dull moment. Yes, I honestly don't know what I would do without my daughters. Temps here are cool this morning with lots of wind. That's Florida for ya!

  19. The only soap I ever watched was "All My Children". Started watching it as a teen and watched throughout the years off and on as long as it was on TV...41 years! I thought I was going to go through withdrawl when it went off but the Lord showed me I didn't need to keep watching that silly stuff anymore and didn't miss it at all. Oh yes, I am a spray paint lover from WAY back! I wish I had a dollar for everything I've spray painted in my life...even the backsplash in my kitchen is spray painted textured wallpaper. I have even spray painted silk flowers...I love it and I love your orange-now-blue chair! You have been a busy girl for sure...your baseboards look so good next to the new paint color and your floors...can't wait to see the before and after shots! Love the pics of you and your beautiful girls!

    1. Thanks Cheryl. I have several that I paint different colors for different things. I have two of them at my dining table and I will either give them a good spray painting or I might just get new ones. Haven't decided it. But I like to use chairs as part of a decor. Especially on my porch which is in DESPERATE need to cleaning right now. NO time for that though.

So rewarding in a small way. I am the NaNa that gets called when grandchildren are sick and I go sit with them. Just did that the other night. Such a nice down time for me! Love the color you painted your chair....my favorite go-to color. How fun to have a new baby in the near future!
