Our Garden!

Image
Who else has their garden all planted? Hunny and I have ours just about done, just need a few more seeds and plants. We have a few different kinds of tomatoes, including cherry, cucumbers, pole beans, hot peppers, green peppers and we are going to plant lettuce, radishes, squash and maybe some melon. We even finished the fence around it to keep the deer from having a buffet! They ate just about everything last year. As soon as a plant would get a bloom, they'd eat it. Hopefully, this year our plants are protected.
I'm really enjoying our little project. It's great together time. I could take less bugs, but that comes with the territory. I can't wait to see the fruits of our labor! And Hunny can't wait for the tomatoes. He is such a tomato snob. Very picky about them. I don't know how many bacon and mater sandwiches that man would eat if you let him.
I'll post pics when the harvest starts coming in. Let me know in the comments what all you have planted!

Whew!

What a weekend! As you already know, Izzie is all officially graduated. The ceremony was nice, but hot. Afterwards, we had a lovely time with friends and family at the house. We were up until God knows what time and had a lot of laughs. It was wonderful. She had a great day that she'll remember for a long time. I'm so thankful everyone got to come out and celebrate with her. She deserved all the love!
 Mother's day was quiet. We just laid around and recuperated. Doodle gave me two new gnomes for my collection and Izzie is making me a remembrance book. My day was lovely. I couldn't ask for more. I hope all you mamas out there had just a great day as I did and got to love on your babies too!

Guess What Tomorrow Is!

This lady is graduating college!! Yep, our baby, Izzie, is going to graduate tomorrow and we are so proud of her! (This pic is from her 4th grade Christmas play so I expect she'll hate me for using it. lol) She has had a rough go of it through college, almost dropping out twice, academic probation, only to rebound and come out with over a 3.0 gpa and an honorable mention! Get ready because I'm going to post LOTS of pics tomorrow of her in her cap and gown! There are no words to describe how proud we are and how much she is loved. Congratulations Izzie!

Greenies Treats! (PS I'm baaack!)

**I received product free in exchange for my 100% honest review thanks to Chewy.com. All opinions are my own**

As you know, I have 2 adult dogs, Kojack and Bolt. Kojack is a black lab mix and Bolt is a bassett hound mix. I love them to pieces, but their breath stinks. I mean bad. I know that there are tooth brushes out there for dogs and even meat flavored toothpaste, but really, I'm not going to go through holding them down and forcing them to brush their teeth. I did that with three kids and I'm not about to start again! Thank goodness Chewy.com has Greenies! These fabulous treats come in three different flavors for the puppies, blueberry, fresh and original. My two have tried the Fresh and Blueberry so far and love them. Bolt does his little hoppy happy dance when he sees me pull the bag out. And their breath doesn't smell like something died in their mouths anymore! I sent the original flavor home with my granddog, Bentley, and he gave his approval too! These fight pl…

After Much Thought....

After much thought and soul searching, I am sorry to say that I am not going to be blogging anymore. Or at least not for a while. I think I have hit blogger burnout. My past posts will still be accessible on caringformychaos.blogspot.com, but I will no longer be actively posting. I want to thank all of my loyal readers for these past years; you have been wonderful! Thank you so much for sharing my little bit of the internet with me.

DIY Kitchen Decorating!

This is what all my spoons, spatulas, tongs, etc were housed in. The utensils were falling out or my kids would just shove them on top because they were filled to the brim. I had decided I wanted to find a bigger thing to house it all in, but wanted it to match my kitchen that I had just finished redecorating in June. I had painted it pink and off white and covered the outlet covers and switch covers like this--
I covered them with shelf paper that I had found at the Dollar Tree. Well, I got an idea this afternoon to find a big coffee can and cover it to match the covers. Well, I had no big coffee can, which was surprising since I drink A LOT of coffee. I had only little ones. But then, I found this--
I had bought a big bucket of cookie cutters a while ago but the top broke to it and the bucket was just sitting there. So I put all the cutters in a big Ziploc bag, which was better to keep the dust off anyways, cleaned out the bucket and cut the shelf paper big enough to wrap around th…
