{to die} faux

So I am one of those people that's always full of new ideas that, at the time, seem like such a great thing and I get all excited and passionate about it!!!.....and then, it never happens. Call it a problem with follow through, but I prefer to think of it as a clashing combination of A.D.D. and creative juices flowing way too freely throughout my body! {Did someone just say squirrel?!} Anyway, I thought that I'd share with you the newest "kick" that I'm on...sponsored by the oh-so-fabulous ka-ka-ka-Kara! {She just started a blog that I think is absolutely hilarious! Check it out here!}  Anyway, she's a stay-at-home momma {to one of the sweetest little boys who refers to me as "Marnie"} who's super creative and has an amazing voice! {Seriously, when she becomes famous and is on stage with her long blonde hair and bare feet singing her pretty little heart out, I'll be able to say, "I'm the one who gets pedicures with her!"}  Oh how I love a good pedicure! Now you know what I'm talking about when I say A. capital D.D.!  Back to the "kick"....Kara casually mentioned to me that she had been thinking about taking a class down in Dallas to learn how to faux paint and asked if I would maybe be interested in doing that with her.  Umm....would I ever?!  Talk about a fun job!!  How fun would it be to be able to remodel furniture and go into houses, changing the entire look and feel of a room?! I love the idea! I've been telling Matt for quite a while now  that I hope that one day, I'll be able to find a job where I'll make lots of money and be able to come and go as I please {sounds like a nice dream, right?! Good thing I like dreaming! :)}  Don't get me wrong, I just started a new job and I'm SOOOO thankful for it {and the people I work with are pretty, well really, great!}, but I would just ell-oh-vee-eee a job where I would get to be creative! So in honor of this new "kick", here are some of my favorite faux creations! :)

Your blog (this post especially!) reminds me why I miss you!! You are hilarious!! and I am loving that that little boy calls you Marnie - how freakin cute is that!! Oh and the A.D.D thing... Did anyone mention that to Matt before you got married?? I swear we would start talking about only one thing every day at work and by the end of the day we would be so far off on a tangent that we never even finished the first conversation! anyway, I sure love ya and miss ya!! You sound like you are doing so good - I love that!!! OK... I am done with my comment

Haha so true! Ahhh the good ol' Jones days!! I really do miss working with you! And I'm not sure if Matt fully comprehended the A.D.D. thing....which is probably a good thing because he probably wouldn't have married me! Haha just kidding (I hope!)!! I love reading your blog about your sweet little boys! They just make me smile! And can I just say that I am so BEYOND ready for a cafe rio date?!?!?! I really think I need a trip to SL for just a Marcie-Heather-Rio date! Miss you!!!!!!
