Coffee Sack Ottoman

I upholstered this ottoman a few weeks ago using a coffee sack. This picture was taken before the wrinkles were gone but I really like how it turned out!

And the best part, it hides ALL of the dirt.

Our Vacation

 We had an awesome vacation starting with an overnight stay at my Aunt's in South Carolina.
She has a lovely place near Charleston - I should have taken more pictures...

 After a huge, yummy breakfast, we drove around a while and ended up at Fort Moultrie.
The children enjoyed climbing around on the canons!

I just started using Instagram and am having fun playing around with it.

 Lido Beach was wonderful as always, there's something magical about the days spent playing and relaxing there!

She had a blast with her surf board, and I loved watching her!

Treats from Starbucks!

They have been begging to carve pumpkins, and it has taken me this long to make it happen, luckily they don't mind being a little late.

And that's it! It was hard to come home to cold weather but I'm trying to stay busy and hoping for snow this winter.

Thanks for reading and have a great rest of the week!

Sick Days

We've been a little sick around Cass House the last few weeks. The children started it off with coughs/fever and missed a good deal of school. Then, this week it has been my turn with a fever/chills. Maybe this would have been a good year to get a flu shot... 

We have an arsenal of medications stacked on the counter. I'm never sure what is most effective so we try everything! I have found that just like the adds say, Aleve does last much longer than Ibuprofen, at least for fever.

I'm grateful for my husband taking the children out to get some dinner when I was at my worst. I guess they would have been gnawing on crackers if he hadn't. And for making the juice, popsicle, herbal tea run :)

But enough about sickness! The sun is shinning it's brightest today - looks like we're in for a warm few days! And we'll be heading to Florida soon! I'm starting to day dream about those lovely beaches....
It's been a year since we've been there, or really had a family vacation and I'm so ready!!
Yay for sunshine!!

Today I'm thankful for a warm house, safety and electricity. I keep thinking about all the people in need because of Hurricane Sandy. Let's remember them in the upcoming months!

Have a happy, blessed weekend everyone!
