My Cup Runeth Over and then Some....

The "Pantry" in our kitchen is where I house all of my small appliances and anything else that doesn't have a home.  AKA the basket of Water Bottles, Insulated Coffee Cups, Gatorade Bottles, Etc.  There is no where else to store these and when you go to get one, they all come tumbling down.  DRIVES ME CRAZY!!! 

So I went on Pinterest (have you been here? OMG I'm in love with this website!!!) and found this idea and it has seriously changed my life and my kitchen.

I purchased a shoe holder (got this one at Lowe's for $14.99) I love this one as it will work with my doors, ones I have purchased in the past the hangers will not allow my doors to close, but this one does!  Happy Girl....so I hung it inside of my coat closet, which is by our kitchen.  So great location and it fits perfectly.

 Then I started to fill it, I couldn't believe how many water bottles, etc that we owned and now they are easily accessible and no more falling to the floor.
I'm in heaven now and my anxiety of falling cups is OVER!

Happy Day....

Our Living Room - Before & After

We purchased our home in 2005.  Hard to believe we've been here 6 years.  Our home has gone through some major changes.

This is the living room before we purchased it.  I saw so much potential here.

Here is what it looked like at Christmas the year be bought it.

Here are the changes it has gone through. 

Removed Carpet and installed hardwood floors.

Here it is with new couch... we tried it a few different ways in this small space, the couch was much larger that we anticipated for this room.

We even tried separating the sectional and came up with this....(I loved it at the time)
Here is our living room after my makeover this past fall.  So in love!!!!

*Walls were painted
*Bought some Ralph Lauren Black pillows (TJ Maxx)
*Added some shelving
*Added some photos & prints (Marshalls)
*New black tables were from Craigslist
*Added lamps (TJ Maxx)
*Added rug (Marshalls)

*Replaced Curtains from Bed, Bath & Beyond.

(See shelf make over tutorial on this blog too)
This antique cain chair my husband bought me for my 40th birthday.  I can't wait to give it a make over this summer.  I'm thinking a soft gray or beige color and a new paris motiff cushion.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!!!

Again, time has gotten the best of me.  Or maybe it's just life?  There have been some highs and lows over the past few months.

For the past 4 years my husbands video production company has filmed the Everett Silvertips Hockey.  This past September Comcast decided not to renew their contract.  This was our financial security.  So Brett has found himself feeling that he cannot provide.  He is a wonderful provider and works really hard for our family, but the economy is taking it's toll on everyone and everything in our society.  We are no exception.  So he's been trying to obtain new contracts.  It's been very challenging as he is also dealing with injuries sustained in a car accident in October 2010 (he was rear ended at 60 mph an hour - he was at a dead stop), so his body is making it challenging for him to even do the job he loves with all his heart.  Please pray for his healing and that he finds substantial work.

In December Brett and I celebrated our 6th year of marriage.  We've been through so much this past year medically, financially, physically, emotionally and he has stayed my ROCK!  I can't imagine going through life with anyone else.  He's an amazing man and I know I don't tell him enough.

Mitchell's football team didn't make it to the playoffs like they have the past 2 years, he learned some new skills and made some great friends.  He spent the better part of the football season weekends spending the night with his buddies Will and Chase.  It's wonderful to see him developing friendships.  We have also gained two new families in our lives.  Which has been a total blessing.

Easton, well he's 3.  Need I say more?  He is all attitude.  He is as stubborn as an OX (he is a Taurus...)  I can't begin to express how much this little guy LOVES his big brother.  Easton has trouble falling asleep on his own and Mitchell is always there to snuggle up with him.  Such a precious moment.

Saxon....you ask who is this new addition to our family? Well he's NOT new, just been out of our lives for awhile, but he's back.  We were blessed to have him spend 2 1/2 weeks with us in November for the Thanksgiving Holiday.  We haven't seen him for 8 years, he is the half brother to my son Mitchell.  LONG story, but we are so blessed to have him once again in our lives.  In fact he might even be moving up here to Washington to be with us full time.  Only God knows how this will all play out.  (My fingers are crossed though)

Has it really been over a month since I posted??? Where does the time go.

Where does time go?  Where did the summer go?  Where did my life go?  It's been almost 2 months since I've blogged!!!  So sorry for those who follow us.  I thought I'd give you a quick run down as to what has been going on in the Webb Household.

Back in April I decided to become a Cookie Lee Jewelry Consultant - They offer a program for newbies called "quick start" and so in your first 3 months they give you HUGE incentives to get you up and running.  I was up for the challenge, (hence one of my many reasons for my absence on my blog).  Within my first 3 weeks I had two recruits in my downline.  During the full 3 months I made my quick success sales goals and earned over $1,000 in FREE Jewelry am I am now a Senior Consultant, working towards earning  a FREE trip to Puerto Rico next May.  I'd love for you to stop by my website and take a peak at our new Fall/Winter Catalog.  www.cookielee.biz/heatherwebb  If you see anything you'd like feel free to place an order or contact me! 

July 18th - 25th - Surprise visit to my mom in "Surprise" Arizona for a week of 110+ weather.  Me and the boys flew down and my best friend from HS picked us up and "delivered" us to my mom.  My Aunt who also lives there was in on it and she drove to my moms house to bring her something, after she got my mom away from the front window we did the stealth mode up to the front door. We knocked and when she answered the door...all I can say it was PRICELESS!  We hadn't seen her in 9 months (longest ever for me) and boy were the boys excited to see their Grandma.  We had a good visit and it was extremely hard to come home, Mitchell was hysterically crying (that is not something a mother can handle so of course I got in on that).  We said our goodbyes and flew back to Seattle to of course the RAIN!  BLAH!
Easton learned how to swim with floaties!!!
 Cactus blooming in my moms backyard
 My two besties from High School live in Arizona now, we had breakfast together!!!  Love you girls!
 My two favorite people in the world my Grandparents Tom and LaVaughn Clark (Easton's Middle name)
 Boys with their Great Grandparents...boy how we miss them!

July 30th - Came back just in time to see my long time co-worker/friend marry her best friend of 10 years!  It was a gorgeous day at the lake and Brett and I had such a fun time, after the wedding we went on a "movie date" and saw the final Harry Potter Movie...it was sooooo good!

AUGUST!!! - FOOTBALL...need I say more.  This is Mitchell's 3rd year returning to the 89'er White Silverlake Timberwolves.  It has been so fun to watch him this year as his head is "finally" in the game!  Can I just say that he is so handsome in his uniform?  He's almost 5 feet tall and he just turned 9!  I've also started this year volunteering for the Football League (http://www.silverlaketimberwolves.com/) where I'm managing the website and helping coordinate the team moms, working the booster table, and anything else they need of me.This is my pride and joy!!! Watch OUT Wolf Pack!!!  Mitchell is #8 leading the pack!!!

Where we've been....

So for Father's Day weekend we were invited to go to Moclips Beach, WA with our friends Jamie (Brett's) and her boyfriend Bobby.  Jamie's boss has a cabin on the beach so we were in heaven.  Here is our adventures....
P.S. when I refer to Jamie as "Brett's" Jamie, it's because we have about 5 Jamie's in our life.  And she was his friend before we married.
 Brett and Easton....Happy Father's Day!!!
 This was the WOW tree, it was a hidden secret.  We ran into a local and he told us about the "Enchanted Forest", we rounded the corner and this is what we saw...the first time I didn't have my camera with me, the 2nd time I wouldn't have missed the shot....so beautiful!!!
Brett, Bobby, Mitchell and Jamie..digging for clams.  See how close we were to the beach...HEAVEN!!!
 Mitchell - growing up way to fast!!!
 Look at those eyes...this is the SPOILED one...
I collected sand dollars every day, they were EVERYWHERE!  These ones were not ready to be collected but I couldn't resist make a sign.  When we got home I counted how many I had found - 65!!!!  That is not including what Mitchell collected.   We could have brought so many more home...so glad we didn't!!!!  Now what to do with 65 Sand Dollars....Craft project in the making....hmmmmm
He just couldn't stay out of the water...the only bad part is that his ENTIRE bag of clothes, pull-ups, wipes, shoes, socks, etc....was left on the top of the stairs at HOME!  We had to wash this outfit every night.  Thank goodness mommy kept pull ups in her car!!! 
This photo just about sums up how our trip was....RELAXING!  Poor Abbey was exhausted from running on the beach and chasing the seagulls. 
Oh so I had to throw this photo in...I LOVE THIS LIGHT!!  It was on a beautiful beach house...DREAMING....someday....
Happy Day - Heather
