This Week… {InstaFriday}

Here’s what we were up to this week – I’m MomsGonnaSnap on Instagram if you want to follow along during the week!

I wrote about loose teeth last Friday, and then this finally happened! During dinner, while eating pizza. I didn’t instagram a pic of what happened later, but imagine that other front tooth a little more centered and dropped down at an angle.  It’s so loose!  And very redneck.  Did I mention that school pictures are today?  Yep. Awesome.


It’s a good thing we have plenty of parking out front… The neighborhood kids congregate at our house and we love it!

Handy hubby put up a rope swing in the backyard last weekend.  It’s been getting some serious use this week!

While hubby worked on the rope swing, I was working on this.  There will eventually be before/after pictures on the blog.  Until then, just imagine what this looked like in 1980. It was UGLY!


The awesome swing in the backyard can easily be switched out – this is the other one!  Bonus – when we bought new camper tires, we saved the $3 disposal fee by keeping this one!


My friend Julie came to visit and brought her sweet little 2-year-old.  Loved being able to spend a little time with them this week!


Ever played Cards Against Humanity?  It’s like The Game of Things, only it doesn’t require you to be as creative.  We are ready for a fun night with friends this weekend!

What did you do this week?

  1. Hi there! I picked a great day to stop by for the first time. I have an old cedar chest (I'm sure from 1980) that I want to paint, but I am afraid. I don't want to ruin it, but it needs so much help. Right now, it hides upstairs. I know it could become something more functional! So YAY! I cannot wait to see your before and after transformation.

    I'll be watching your Instagram feed for more photos! Enjoy your weekend.

    1. I have been trying to convince myself that it's okay to paint it if I think it's ugly "as is". Hard to do with furniture we have had forever, but I picked up the cedar chest on Craiglist (along with a dresser, headboard and 2 night stands!) for CHEAP with the intent to paint. Just takes a little paint and some time and they look just like new!
