Well snap my bowtie and call me whiplashed!

I know, quite shocking isn't? Me? Posting again so soon? I'm on a role folks.....

This weekend has been pleasant so far. Went up to the 'Northland' as we like to call it around here to visit a friend this morning. She recently moved into a new home and it's beautiful. I took the kids while Handsome Hubby worked on the hardwood floor. Oh yes, the hardwood floor project continues. Getting the last coat to go on smoothly has been nothing short of a nightmare. Anyway, I made him take this picture of me with the kids as up until now I've not had one with them. (I'm always on the other side of the lens it seems.)


I finished up the front entryway project the other night. Well, as with any project in my home, it's never really finished. I would like to add a few smaller black flower pots next to the urns and fill them with some colorful flowers to make the area pop. I'm also on the hunt for a wreath but
I've not found anything I just love yet.
We added the wrought iron piece above the door and I think I like it. I'm just not 100% positive yet. We live in the 'burbs, hence the 'Suburban Momma' and many of the houses look similar, I'll admit it. In fact, we get static sometimes from our non-suburban friends about how we live in cupcake land, all the houses look alike. Adding the black iron piece is kind of my little way of making my home more distinctive. :)
What do you think, should it stay or should it go?

I know this is pulling from the archives . . . . but I've been meaning to ask how you painted your dining room table. What type of paint, and what type of prep was involved. I have an old round table myself, in a hideous country oak, that seriously needs a new life. Thanks!

You look fabulous in that picture! I'm the same way, trying to find a picture of me with the kids - well, it's pretty much non-existent.

I like the iron piece over the door. Make it unique.

My vote - keep the urns. I do like the idea of the smaller ones with color.

Thanks for stopping by my blog - it is nice to know I am not alone with my "habit".
