School adjustment

A few family and friends have asked how the Bigs are adjusting to school. They are super troopers, who have truthfully rolled with all of our crazy transitions and changes. Both of them are finding friends at school, excelling at their school work, and involving themselves at school.
I get to attend their awards ceremony tomorrow. Kendall made honor roll and missed principal's list by 2%. Isaac missed honor roll by 2%. Incredibly proud of these resilient and adaptable kiddos!!

Invisible fence training

Any of my fellow dog lovers have tips for training on the invisible fence? Keep in mind Maverick has a very high prey drive especially for squirrel. He just caught and killed one last week! 
Any tips are appreciated! !

Day 2 of unpacking the office /sewing studio

I could just leave it right here with this picture. I am so beyond frustrated of box after box like this. My end of first day I hit 22 boxes. On the end of the second, I completed another 14. I have been able to organize a bit too. Hopefully by weekend,  we will be completely in business for good ♡♡ 
As for now, it's time to turn in for some shut eye!!

Day #1 Unpacking the office/sewing studio

So I will be honest, I have been dreading the time that I would have to tackle this room. Why you ask? Well for one, there are a million and 1 boxes in there! 2.....well the Packers were not very organized. It literally makes me want to pull my hair out!!! But, my Grammy has asked me to do something and in order to complete the task, I must unpack this craziness! 
Today was day #1 and I tackled 15 boxes. I am happy with the forward progress but not with how slow it is going!!
This is looking into the room from the French doors that I am very grateful to be able to close when not working in here!

 Some more of the madness ahem craziness um boxes to unpack!
This will eventually be my embroidery and appliqué corner.

This will eventually be my sewing machine station and Nomades work space.

Just so you don't think that I am exaggerating on how much stuff there is to put away!!

 14 of the 15 boxes to show you how puny it looks!
You must save 1 box to stuff paper in! Rules of unpacking from a PCS move!

Progress!! Can you see it? Please tell me that you can! !

So in order to get the boxes unpacked,  I had to make a huge mess because I of course haven't found the baskets to put the embroidery blanks in......

Old decor...new house

So like most folks, we have decor that moves with us from house to house. You know that makes it feel like home! This is one of those pieces. And of course we add to it with each new duty station too! I love to support other WAHM businesses so I just wanted to give a shout out to Perfectly Distressed. I have had many compliments over the years on this particular decor piece. I ordered the new board before we left California and it was waiting for us at the new house!

New house ♡ new entryway

I haven't posted in awhile. I have a fantastic excuse! We just has a surprise party for Ben! I continue to try to unpack and set up the house to make it a home. It's hard to keep a time perspective. We've only been in the house for a month now so I am trying to persevere and finish strong. 
The entry way is one of my favorite parts of the house. I'm not 100% done with it but it is close enough to post a few pictures ♡
The main wall has our family picture, rules, names, and of course stars!
The French doors house our office/ the Skidz Wife Creations sewing studio. It is wall to wall boxes in there.
The rug was a purchase from a friend in California. We only paid $10 for a 5x7 rug!

Ben got me this sweet, little table for our anniversary at a local antique shop.
This entry way bench is waiting on Ben and I to refinish, rework the wood, and get rid of the broken mirror. I can't tell you how much I want to post after pictures of this!!
This is part of the shelf about the door. I have an idea in my head of how I want it to look when finished. Now I just have to be patient until I find everything ♡
The other side of the shelf. The wreath was made by friends of ours from their grape vine in the backyard.
Looking into the hallway to the breakfast nook/kitchen area.
Obviously the shelf is so not finished but I am happy with it so far!

Honoring Pappy

Believer. Son. Brother. Husband. Father. Pappy. Great-grandpa. Veteran. And so much more ♡
I will miss your quiet presence, your sense of humor, your love of desserts, even your teasing. 
You were there for most of my important events in school. You helped teach me how to shoot, fish, and play cards.
Most of all you showed me the devotion that a husband should have for his wife. Never once did I hear you and grammy arguing.
You were fair and honest. Oh yeah and a hard worker. 
Thankful for the blessing of being your granddaughter.
