Planked Wall Thoughts, Be Nice & Funny's

Gettin' Geared Up, A quick lesson & Funny

Cason emailed me this today:

 "I have a building bug in me and want to make/build something today when I get home!
What should I do, tonight, Love?"
~Cas

Then he sent me these pictures from Google Image:






Got any ideas what he's got up his sleeve?
:)
***sigh***
There are so many reason why I love this man.
But this email...
and this picture that I secretly snapped the other night, while I was 
"working on vinyl orders"... hee hee
...Have to be in my top 10 for sure
:)

Some other things I'm excited to show you:
- Studio 5 Halloween Segment (on Thursday)
- Pimping out my neighbors KitchenAid
- A Fall Deal
 - Goin' Animal Style
- Party Planning extraordinaire
 - Adding some bench flair
and more... but I better not list the others, in case they 'go south'
ha!
.....................................................

Oh... and to Miss "Anonymous" today...
(thank goodness I moderate comments, lol)
Please take a lesson from the smartest Thumper around :)

Excuse me, to the rest of you...
I just wanted to make sure she saw that... just in case her Momma never had a chance to teach her
:)
Don't think I'll ever "understand" nasty commenters... hmmm...
ANYWAY...
These always brighten my day :)
Take a stab at it.  See if they work for you.

Yup... in the words of this guy...


"I don't care who ya'are... that there's FUNNY!"

  1. Wow, you are one lucky woman!!! My husband is SUPER handy around the house, but has a "bad attitude" most of the time when it comes to home improvement projects. Don't get me wrong, he does have many wonderful qualities, but initiating home project is NOT one of them LOL!!! Can't wait to see what ya'll come up with!

    PS - Boo to the nasty poster. I just don't get that either. At all.

  14. I've been dreaming of clad-ding (is that a word?) one wall in our master bedroom in horizontal planks for YEARS. Every month SOMETHING comes up to steal my joy...I mean money...this month new tires for the van.

    Here's the thing: if I have a beautiful bedroom, I'll never want to go anywhere, right? So tires - shmires, I say ;)

    Can't wait to see how it turns out!

  18. Love it! Love all of it! -Love that your husband TOTALLY ROCKS, love the horizontal planks/panels(we're putting that in the entry of our new house. Giddy!), and I especially love how you reacted to Debbie-downer. Perfect. Mega props to you for having class and grace. I'm so wicked excited to see your new projects and Cason's handy work. You go girl!

  19. Whatever Cason is thinking, tell him to build it at my house. Those pics are awesome. I wish you would post that nasty comment like the first hate mail you got. That was one of my favorite posts of all time!!!! Way to let anonymous know she was out of line!!!!

  20. Hey Smithy-so sorry to hear about your crazy commenter. I don't know what it was, but who cares! I think you're amazing. I am cousin to Ronda B, your neighbor-right? and love to check out your blog as well as hers almost every day! You give me so many ideas and I can't wait to try some of them! Creating anything feeds my soul, but I do better when i can copy. There's more success! :) So thank you for letting me copy you!!!!! You're wonderful wonderful wonderful. Sometime I would like to take a road trip to good old Utah and see all the family up there! Maybe I could meet you. Thanks for the laughs by the way. Love the spanish/spinache one! -Kerrie

  28. I can't even imagine what nasty thing someone would come up to say to you! I get nothing but joy, laughs, and AMAZING ideas from your blog.

    Please send Cason to my house if he has a building bug. I'm working on my bathroom transformation inspired by your little girl's bathroom. I'm exhausted! :) JK I can't wait to see what he does with his bug and those inspiration pictures!

  33. Ya just can't please everyone can ya?! But I'm in LOVE with your site! I'm in love with the color choices u make, but have a random question. How do you make Christmas colors and fall colors work with it? I don't see pics of that and am dying to see how u would make it come together for the holidays. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  34. ...he was injured...he was injured bad!!! HA! I had totally forgotten about that clip. I just wanna hug that lil boy ~ he's soooo cute.

    Great lesson from Thumper ;) Apparently, "anonymous" didn't learn that lesson from her parents!! I don't tolerate rude people.

  43. it is sad people write ugly things. I love your blog !
    I hate for my hubby to do the clothes . I hate the way he folds !!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Some people!!! I can't even think of a mean thing a person could say to you or your blog, seriously, yours in one of my top three favorite blogs to read. I am dying to see if you do anything with that horizontal wood paneling, I would love to do it but I am little scared it would look funny in a 90's suburb home??? And I am super curious as to how one might pimp out a kitchenAid...hmmm.

    ReplyDelete
  45. OMG- I'm DYING at those videos!!!!! Those kids are so stinkin' cute! And I had forgotten all about little Thumper- can't wait to introduce him to my baby James. And your hubby folding laundry- very sexy:)

    ReplyDelete
  46. And one more thing- who could possibly have anything nasty to say here?! I don't get it.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I just love this! First of that is my all time fav part of a movie and I have been known to do an imitation once in a while and those kids, precious. I needed the laugh!!! As for your husband, would he consider running a "real man camp"????? I'll send mine, laundry folding, building, cooking, dancing (I remember your old video) all the things all men should do!!! Thanks girl, lots of fun! And remember if they called you a giraffe would that make you one? No, ignore the nasties!

    ReplyDelete
  48. OM goodness . . . what an incredible husband. I love that he sent you those photos . . and I love a man who isn't afraid to do the laundry! I'm blessed with a laundry-lovin man. Can't wait to see some of your upcoming posts!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Oh, he's definitely a keeper! We are planning on doing the boarded walls (what is that called?) in our little guys room soon so I hope you do a little tutorial!

    Sorry that someone left you a mean comment, what is wrong with some peeps?

    Off to check out some more of your posts :)

  51. Thanks for the good laugh...I'm laughing as I'm loading the kids up to get to school. Have a wonderful day!!!

    ReplyDelete
  52. You married a good man!!! I knew him in kindergarten/first grade and may or may not have had a crush on him!!

    Love your blog and projects. And I love how you handled your rude anonymous poster. Somebody's gotta put them in their place, or at least teach them a lesson!!

    ReplyDelete
  53. LOVED that thumper video 'reminder.' how cute. I have to say the article you posted about how blogging comments hurt opened my eyes to why people are mean and rude in the comment section...it's all due to insecurity!! And I myself have felt those insecurities and as a result thought something less than sweet!! (though I'd never say it aloud!!). anyway, I LOVE your blog and the inspiration it gives me. Thanks so much for sharing your creative genius!!
