I am sure you have seen this similar project on pinterest. I saw it a couple of months ago. I didn't have the motivation to do it for myself so I have put it off. I did have motivation for my Mom's birthday though. The regular pin (which I can't find) had white pots with red polka dots. I decided to do chalk paint though. Heidi did a chalk pot on her blog that I loved. I love that she can change it up. She can erase it whenever she wants and put her street number or leave it blank if she feels the desire. I think it turned out great. It was really easy. I got 3 terracotta pots. Cleaned them, painted with chalk paint and then I placed a paper towel to cover the draining hole. It was a significant size hole and I know it isn't a good idea to completely cover it so I put one layer of paper towel that #1 it doesn't leak dirt and #2 it is still able to drain water if it gets fed too much. I have no idea if this was a legit thing to do...but I did.
Add dirt, add flowers, and give away as a gift as soon as possible so you don't see the flowers die (:
As soon we move I will definitely do 2 for ourselves. I am thinking one with our name and one with our house number on each side....of a porch? Yes, I want a house with a porch.
Some of you have asked if we have found a house yet. Nope, we are just in the beginning stages of looking, although we are 90% sure we have someone buying our place as soon as we move out. That will such a weight off. We have called a developer that works in DayBreak. If DayBreak doesn't work out, then
The boys had a fun time with a small water fight and baseball. Dad lost without a dout, although the photos clearly show Jaden struggling.
Thanks everyone for making my birthday special. Thanks Dad for being the best Dad ever! Your constant example and positive outlook on life are a couple of attributes that I admire the most about you. I love you so much! Thank you for being willing to do anything for not just me and Anth but for the entire family. You are one of kind. Also, I love how adorable you are with the grandkids! Where has all your energy come from?
Happy Birthday to my beautiful Mom. She looks so much younger than she really is. I hope I look as good as she does at that age. She has a beautiful smile and is a wonderful Grandma. I love talking to her on the phone and I know she will always there for me. Also, she makes the best funeral potatoes. No chunks, but shredded potatoes, just the way I like it. Love you Mom!
Hope everyone is having as good of a weekend that I am. Life is grand.
