Front Porch Inspiration

Hey friends!

Just popping in to say that I am knee-deep in projects and my head is a spinnin’!

I don’t know if I’m comin’ or goin’

Just to give you an idea, here is my to-do list…

1.  Complete front porch.

2.  Gut the playroom and turn it into our host daughter’s room.

3.  Build boys’ bunk beds.

4.  Refinish and install three antique doors.

5.  Plan Spring Makeover project with Lowe’s for family in Tennessee.  (sneak peek)


6.  Finish Dossier and Home Study.

7.  Finish book shelves, pictures, and post.

8.  Boys’ schedules, games, events, end of school year madness, graduations….

9.  Blog and Young Living business.

10.  Paint office, install wood floors, install kitchenette, move into office space.

11.  Plant five raised garden beds!


SEE?!!!  I’m a nut case over here!

Although I am feeling overwhelmed, I will not complain.  These are wonderful “problems” to deal with, and I know that I could be stressing over much more serious things, but I am not.   I am thankful that my to-do list is full of wonderful things!

I’m just trying to take it a day at a time. 

Since “all things front porch” are on my mind, I wanted to share with you my friend, Richella from Imparting Grace‘s beautiful front porch.  Click on the picture to see all of the details!

  1. Oh my word!! my head is spinning from your to do list!! WOW! Can’t wait to see all your progress!! I’ll be praying for you ;-)

  2. Love the grays and creams and blues together! Everything you create has such pretty style. Can’t wait to see your new projects — hope you’ll get some rest too! : ) I’m sure you’ll have fun and do a beautiful job decorating with girl colors for your newest little sweet pea.

  3. Bless your heart! You may in fact be the busiest person I know right now–and considering that I have a both a college graduation and a high school graduation coming up in the next couple of weeks, I’m a pretty busy person right now, too!

    Thank you so much for sharing my front porch. Wish you could come sit there with me! I’d bring out my foot bath and let you soak your feet while you drink your iced tea! :)

    Love you, friend!

  4. I had to sit down from exhaustion after reading your list! Good luck with being Super Woman!!

  5. Oh my, wow, that’s quite the list. I’m exhausted just reading it. Can I ask about one of the items listed: build boy’s bunk beds. Is that for somebody else as I thought your boy’s rooms were done?

  6. Sounds like you have your hands FULL! Can’t wait to hear more about all your projects & and thanks so much for sharing with us. Also – what a great perspective on a to-do list … looking at all the things you GET to do as opposed to what you HAVE to do. I’m definitely changing my viewpoint on my own list. ♥
