2fer Tuesday {on Wednesday}.


2 Things From My Birthday:


1. I got wind chimes!!! 
You guys! Does this make me sound like a super old lady - - wanting wind chimes? LoL. Doesn't matter.  I have wanted these babies for a LONG time and my family surprised me with them. They are the extra big chimes which makes the sound that comes out of them sound EXTRA pretty.

{I promise I didn't turn 62. Just 38, folks!}

2. Holy Cow! you can get a ton of FREE stuff on your bday!

I always knew about the 'regular' spots that gave out free food on your special day but this year...I discovered a slew of new places.  I plan to share ALL of these finds in an upcoming blog post soon!

Until then - - just know - - Kneaders gives you a free dessert {no sign-up // just show them your I.D.}
and their mini pumpkin chocolate chip mousse cake is pretty much TO DIE FOR!!!

1. I'm wanting to change up the wall behind our TV in our family room.  I really, really want to do a WHITE shiplap/plank wall.

Anyone have any suggestions?

I know it can be done on the cheap.
And I'll 99.9% most likely hire someone to do it for me.
{Wood + nails + paint intimidate me.  Sorta like yeast. I don't know why.  They just do}.

But where do I even begin???

2.  THIS talk on having JOY in our lives.
I can't even begin to tell you how much I LOVE it.

When the focus of our lives is on Jesus Christ and His gospel, we can feel joy regardless of what is happening—or not happening—in our lives.
-Elder Russel M. Nelson

Read it.
You will not be disappointed.

Thank you! Thank you! x 100 for all of your sweet Birthday messages, texts, phone calls and emails. 

It made me feel so loved. It really did.

I feel so blessed to have such wonderful family members and friends, both near and far, who care so much about me and my sweet little family.

MUAH!
xoxo

    1. I know but for some reason it is just so intimidating to me. Wood work and all ;)
