Random thoughts on a wet, rainy May morning:
1. We are heading to Waco to pick up one of our chicks this morning. Just in time for Mother’s Day. I’m so happy that my heart is bursting.
2. It was a good week on the blog. We talked about the one thing we did to get our backyard ready for summer and learned that the best inspiration is a deadline and discovered a planter with superpowers.
3. Have you ever tried those magnetic falsh eyelashes before? I’m thinking about it. Should I go first?
4. I read the best inspirational thought this week that went something like this.
If you had $100,000 dollars and someone stole $10 from you what would you have left? 99,990 dollars. That’s a lot of dollars in your bank account. Now, what if you compared that to time? You have hundreds of thousands of seconds in a day. What if someone says something negative to you that takes up 10 seconds of the day?
Why do we focus on that 10 seconds?
We still have HUNDREDS of thousands of seconds left of wonderful, amazing things in our life.
Don’t let someone steal your time.
Or your joy.
Here are some of my favorite things from the internet this week.
I’ve always wanted to try this.
Great tips and ideas on how to turn a piece of furniture into a sink.

Did you know you could make your own potato chips?
And these look super yummy.
See the recipe here.
Nothing is better than thrift store shopping.
Except decorating with them.
I’ve never been to Paris.
But now I feel like I have.
And in random news this week:
This inspired me
This beautiful bedroom
These unexpected curtain ideas
This before and after (I love the rug)
And in case you like a farmhouse find?
I have a post full of them you can see here (complete with a video of me finding them).
And they all came from WALMART.
