A couple ~Good Things~

Did any of you see this on Oprah today? I'm am NOT a cook, Brad is great at it and loves to do it so I am willing to support that! But, I gotta say, this was so inspiring! In Deceptively Delicious, Jessica Seinfeld created great recipes to sneak veggies & other good-for-you stuff into regular kid-approved foods. I don't have too much trouble getting Kaden to eat veggies, but as he gets older I see him getting more independent in his food choices. Plus, all the recipes are low fat and really nutritious for adults, too! She'll be on Regis & Kelly next monday (10/15), check her out.

elf makeup anyone? I learned about this deal from another blogger, (thanks Tami) but it is too good not too pass along. If you go to their website all of their makeup products are only $1. And if you put in the coupon code CAROLINA when you check out then you get half price on up to $20 dollars or just $10 off if it is more than that. I haven't tried their make-up yet, but I'm gonna now, what do you have to lose?

Rental House- Before & After

A couple years ago we bought a rental home near the Country Club that Brad's mom rents from us. We decided it was time for a paint job so Labor Day weekend we set to work.

Before Shot:

Notice the giant bush under the window. It was growing under the siding and into the house throught the window sill. Not through the window, but actually through the joints in the window sill! Flowers could bloom IN the kitchen!

And here's how it looks now! Brad did all of the stone work himself before we started painting. He did such a great job! I'd like to put some bark mulch in the flower bed & a flower box under the small front window to set it off a bit. Other than that I think it looks pretty great!!
