Hurricane Irma hit Atlanta on Monday afternoon. We were lucky and didn't have any damage, although the trees were really swaying! And it rained, and rained, and rained....
 Gas was in short supply for a few days given all of the evacuees from Florida and the Georgia coast. (We had the sister of one of my bridesmaids evacuate from Savannah to our cabin for a few days!)
And we lost power Monday evening (along with thousands of other people!) Our power was out for about 24 hours. Not too bad considering.
The candles hide the dust... maybe this is something I should explore further.
 Reading with a backlight was not so bad!
 And school was canceled for three days. Even the kids were ready to go back by Wednesday.
We lost most of the food in the fridge. But bright side-this is probably the cleanest my refrigerator has been since we moved in!

College Football Starts Today!

LSU doesn't kickoff until 9:30 tonight, so I made this today while watching OU beat up on UTEP. 
 I love the way it turned out! I just need to find some ribbon to go on it.

Chest of Drawers Rehab

Christian's room has been LSU themed since he was in middle school. That's not really working for him anymore. I'm slowly transitioning his room to a more grown up bedroom/spare room. My latest project was rehabbing this garage sale chest of drawers that I picked up for $20.

(the top was in rough shape)

This is the first time I have tried waxing. It is very subtle on the red, but I love it!

First Day of School=Together Again

Only one set of back to school photos this year! (And boy, did 5:30 come early this morning!)
Coleman is beginning his junior year
 And Carolyn is a freshman!
 Back to school means I am on solo beast duty.
 If only everyone was REALLY jumping for joy!
Carolyn is a little nervous about high school (it is the largest one in the Southeast!) but I know she will be fine.
(Seriously, they look like twins!)
 And off to school they go!

Goodbye red dining room!

I mom, therefore I blog.
