Saturday Snapshots

It is Saturday, very early Saturday, but surely it still counts! I still haven't been to sleep yet because that's how I roll in the summer time. Is everyone ready for Saturday Snapshots? If not you can always embed some instagram pictures. Remember any snapshot works!  I'm ready to showcase some pictures from this past week. I've been so busy with PD this week that I may not have tons! Don't forget I'll pick one photograph that really gets my attention to win a fun surprise. Winner will be announced July 4th so hurry and link up on the blog or instagram with the hashtag #Saturdaysnapshots. 








           I went on my first summer road trip for 2014.  Destination : Biloxi.  It was short but sweet!
We had some fun celebrating two birthdays on Saturday. We celebrated my nephew and niece! Can you tell what they are into these days?



Christian is in love with dragons. We saw How to Train Your Dragon 2. Oh my was it good but also sad... I might have cried just a little.

My sister has just gotten her real estate license so she's been trying her best to sell us a new home. 
Umm... I fell in love with this model home. It's perfect but not three minutes away from school like I am now.  How fun would it be to move in and not have to decorate????







Christian loves the jumper thing as he calls it. They are making a killing off of me this summer.

We had this human car wash at our end of the year party. I'm really wanting to try to make one. I know Christian and Isla would have a blast.

Have you all tried Chalk Paint? I have a friend that has me hooked. Chalk Paint is very easy to work with. It very rarely requires any preparation, such as sanding or priming, and can be used indoors or outside, on just about any surface.  It can revitalise old furniture, walls, ceilings and floors with ease. It's easy, fun and ADDICTING. You should see my friend. She's painting EVERYTHING. I'm just going to start with some wooden frames. Who knows... I might try some furniture. 



I'm loving this table. She has definitely inspired me and now I've ordered 6 sample colors.  Monday Made It here I come.

  4. Oh my goodness, that house! Your niece and nephew are adorable. My fifteen year old daughter loves Frozen as much as any little kid. She'd LOVE that cake! (Sweet 16?!) I made my own chalk paint, and it worked. I never have tried Annie Sloan's but I hear about it all the time and all the pieces are gorgeous. I need to order some samples. Unfortunately, I have only summer school pictures on my blog and some clearance purchases from Hobby Lobby...so not really Saturday Snapshot-worthy...but I loved yours!!!! I'm a follower now- gotta see what you do with that paint! Great post.

    1. Hey Julie,
      I'm impressed you made your own chalk paint. Annie Sloan is kinda expensive. I'd love to see what you did. Off to check out your blog.

  8. Those cakes are awesome! I'd hate to have to cut a piece from it....well...ok...my arm has been twisted! I'm sure they were delicious too! Love that house! Wow! I've never heard of chalk paint. I will have to look into it. I've got some furniture that needs a little revamping!

  10. So....for real...when are we moving into that house? Tell Cameron you'll buy it. I guess if I can't live in there with you and Mr. Nelson, I'll just move into your house when you move out. You have to take Cooper with you though. Sorry....he can't stay with me. Christian and Isla's cakes turned out awesome! You took some really nice shots this week! I miss seeing you!!!
