Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons

7 Apr

We have had a pretty fun and productive week in our household. It’s hard to believe it is April already. We celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary on April 3rd. Crazy how quick it has flown by!

Happy Anniversary Christian!

This week, I also decided to start working out again. I so hope I can keep up with it!

This cutie came home from school with a pony tail on Friday. Too funny.

I bought Chris a new Red Sox hat and I guess Kyler thought it would be fun to wear it around. Silly thing was bumping into everything. Sorry for the blurry picture, hard to get her to stay still!

Saturday, our neighborhood was having their Spring block party (not sure what to call it) and we headed down with The Gilbertson’s. Kyler and Kenley had a good time riding in the wagon.

The neighborhood dance group was performing on stage and the girls decided to join in and dance.

Fun with Dad.

Dancing machine!

The Jenkinsons!

After dinner hugs. Besties!

Fun times!

Love ❤

This face kills me, in a good way 🙂

Me and my babe.

I love my neighborhood! I think when Kyler is a little bit older, she will really start to like these little block parties. They have tons of bounce houses and things for little kiddos to do!

Today, we went on a nice long bike ride. Kyler sported her shades.

We rode by some cows so we stopped so say hello.

All in all, we had a great week! Next weekend we are off to Jupiter Beach to celebrate the wedding of one of my best friends! Can’t wait for a weekend away and to party the night away!

My New Craft Room!

7 Apr

Okay so I have always been in love with a well organized craft room. I have always wanted one and knew when we moved into This Grey House (you see what I did there?) I would wind up getting one. I opted to “share” my craft room with my computer room that is directly off the Master Bedroom. I have plenty of bedrooms but I couldn’t see myself giving up an ENTIRE BEDROOM for a craft room! Maybe if I worked on parties and crafts full-time but just to play around the house and help out friends, I couldn’t give up all that space.

Here is the space before we moved in:

I knew that I could easily rearrange the computer room and find some space in there. Is it a little more compact than it was before? Sure, but I still have tons of room to move around. Does the white craft room clash with the dark computer furniture? Yeah, probably, but it still works.  The best part is that I can be in the same room hanging out with the hubs at night if I need to work on something.

I wasn’t sure what exactly I wanted in my craft room but I know I needed a big working table and storage. I fell in love with a table and paper storage cart from Ikea but that was all I had to work with.

One day, while shopping at Michaels, I came across all of their craft storage and everything was 50% off. As much as I loved everything, I knew I didn’t have much floor space and these units were made to be stacked onto each other, much like cubbies. I brought my hubby back the next day and showed him everything and he mentioned hanging them on the wall. I didn’t that was an option but he knew exactly what was need to make sure those puppies never go anywhere! By that night, we had everything hung up and put in place!

I love my new craft “room”  and couldn’t be any happier with how it turned out.
