Happy 4th of July!!

Whew..what a weekend! So I think this is the first year I can remember where July 4 did not involve fireworks or going to the lake :( In fact the only thing patriotic I did was whip up one of the easy trifle recipes:

I really wanted to dress it up a little this year and add white chocolate or coconut per other's suggestions but didn't take the time..because.........we finally started painting the nursery

BEIGE!! Exciting, huh? Actually its Arabian Sands and we're hoping to get the stripes started this week. The real work went into clearing all of our junk out of the room and trying to find places to put it. One of the perils of a small home is closet space...I am literally going crazy trying to make room!! There's only so much stuff I'm willing to toss. After our hard work my sister, mom and I decided to throw on some dresses and head to the outdoor theatre to watch Cinderella.

The stepsisters stole the show!! They were so funny! My sister and I were talking about what fun it would be to be the costume designer.

If you ever visit East KY in the summer I highly recommend you visit the Jenny Wiley Theatre. The setting is beautiful and the shows are always wonderful.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!


  1. Ahhh!! This answers my unasked question about where you live in KY!! Well - almost. My sister and I grew up acting at Jenney Wiley =) she was in the shows for years and years, I was just a munchkin one year in Oz. My hubs is from pikeville and I'm from Pburg =)

    If you've ever read she's a dear friend from pikeville that was phenomenal in jenny Wiley when she was younger! Seriously - Brit is a fantastic singer! (I can't carry a tune in a bucket...)

  2. That dessert looks so yummy! I'm excited about seeing the progress on your nursery... And outdoor theater??!!!!! I would LOVE to see that! I hope you're having a beautiful monday!

  3. I can't wait to see pictures of the nursery when it is all finished!

  4. Can't wait to see the stripes in the nursery. I'm sure it will be adorable! I know what you mean about small houses and not enough closet space. We don't have kids yet but I'm already worried about where we would put clothes, diapers, blankets, etc. If you come up with any creative solutions pass them on!

  5. I so want to go watch Cinderella at JWT! I bet it was fun. Can't wait to see the nursery. She will be here so soon....We also missed 4th of July at the lake this year--Just didn't seem right. However, Hilton Head was nice. I wish you all could have made the trip.

  6. You look SO cute, love your dress! Glad you've gotten started on the nursery, I myself prefer neutral tones like that one.

  7. I love the idea of a beige room with stripes! I can't wait to see how it turns out. And you look so pretty in your white dress. Sounds like a really fun weekend.
