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!!!

2 Randoms:


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.



  1. There are tutorials online how to do ship lap walls. I'm planning to do it behind my tv as well!

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