DIY Succulent Mini Garden

Succulents are supposed to be easy to take care of right?

We shall see........

I love the look of a mini succulent garden.




In English please...

A container with rocks and succulents.

Get it? Good.

So here is my oh so professional DIY POST!!!


go for and make succulent mini gardens!

Step one: find cute, CHEAP, pot/dish/bowl/etc. Whatever your heart desires to plant in. via- Goodwill, Salvation army, moms kitchen..
(within reason people)


Step dos: buy delicate, little, hopefully not so delicate succulents.
Via home depot, lowes... Etc.

Step |||. Buy or collect nice, unique rocks/pebbles/stones. Via hobby lobby or your local crik. (creek) or a neighbors driveway.


(kidding don't steal!!)

Step 4. Plant your pea picking heart out baby! Plant very very gently. These succulents are fragile. Smush, arrange, till it's art in succulent form.

Ta-Da! Now set somewhere sunny and enjoy.

From what I've read I think misting them once a week is good in the watering department. But don't trust me. Google it.

FYI finding a pot/bowl/thingToPlantIn that has a wide mouth opening would be GREAT! Especially if you plan on smushing 3! Three! Succulents in one! 1! Pot/bowl/thing.

P.S. It'd be great to have a blog post where the pics were actually in order!!!!!!!!! Sorry. Small mini rant to match the mini garden =•P

Hello muscle pain, nice to feel ya

Pain is weakness leaving the body. Huh. Yea. Sure.

My arms hurt. My stomach, where ab muscles should be hurts. But I like it, I tell ya!

It means I've been actually following my newest workout thing. Thank you Pinterest! <3

June Mean Abs. Or Mean June Abs? What evah. It's work baby.
Day one may be like 7 sit-ups. But its still work!

I've been posting my progress updates on instagram. I loveeee IG ! I'm thankful for the "likes" I get when I post workout complete for the day. It gives me the extra boost I need.

Who knows if I'll make it to the end of the month..... Like 200 crunches, 100 sit ups. Some crazy crazy numbers! :-/.

I THINK I CAN, I think I Can!!!

On another painful note... We just finished listening to The Hunger Games series. Loved it! It's refreshing to read/listen to a book that can be very captivating and not by using steamy cheap love scenes or vulgar four letter words. Just by a good storyline. Let's say I could of cried at a few scenes. Ok. Maybe. I. Did.

So sue me. I'm emotional.

Back to my lack of ab definition. I took a cozy blanket outside. Laid down and did my meager exercises under the flicker of lightenin' bugs. My workout music was the giggles of my babies. Perfect night. All that was missing was my hard working hunny.

(and yes my children laugh at me when I exercise;)

Ohhh found some vintage goodness at The Salvation army thriftin'.

And of course my love and infatuation of sky, clouds, sunsets, moon pics still lives on.

Now I do believe it's time for ZzzZz's.

Goodnight blog world.

Oh and saw some funnies on Pinterest.

P.S. Really goodnight. Ser-is-lee.

Easy peasy Menu Board

Thrifted frame-
Cloth napkin-
Dry erase marker-

Waa laa

Found this lovely idea via Pinterest. <3 that site.

Anyways basically lay cloth napkin/fabric of your choice behind glass of frame like you would a picture. Close frame. Hang on wall. And enjoy your borrowed creativity! You could also swap out fabric/markers to match Holidays.

Oh, the color possibilities are endless!

This basically cost me 1$. Price of thrifted frame. I <3 thrifting. But that's a whole nother post. Yes, "nother". Not not "another". Just "nother". I'm from MO, Dontcha know.

My Man couldn't believe I said "nother" like it's actually a real word, in that context. He laughed. And shook his head, while laughing.

And laughed some more...

It's ok. I'm tough. I have 4 brothers.

Bloggg rutt. Blogrutt. Blog ruuuuuuuutttt. Ya you get it

The title says it all.

The Holidays are over. Can't say I miss nonstop music about jingle bells, toy packaging, and drummers.

Yes, hello I'm Mrs Scroogette.

No not really.
Really... Im not

I'm thankful for a Savior being born aka Jesus Christ. Albeit, it was not Dec 25, nor did he have a tree with trimmings. Or Drummers.

(need to figure out the direction of this particular blog post. Sooooon)

Isaiah 9:6 (KJV)
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Matthew 1:21 (KJV)
And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

Again I'm thankful for a savior!!

We enjoyed several days down home in MO.. Family Time is always super special.

My Man is starting a small new business venture. Wooden Keepsake Pocket Knives. Only 5 easy payments of $29.99.



We've started low priced. But will adjust the price when I list them on etsy. To cover fees, new power tools etc..

If I can remember to list them..

Stinkin mommybrain is bout to make me forget everything... Dontcha know.

(gotta blame it on something)

Hmmm still trying to get direction here........

Oh yes, the most overused status:blog:tweet:pin:etc right now... Drum roll please...

New Years Resolution!! Which is saying.. I'm weak without will power 11 months out of the year, but come January I turn superhuman and WILL stick to my N.Y.R (for a day, week, month) huuuya!!

Was that harsh?

Forgive me for being honest.

I'm guilty too. Pulling out my soap box.

If your gonna make a change. Let's make it forever not just month long sad attempt at changing overnight.



Whew glad we got that squared away nicely.
I can sleep easy now.
Since it's O dark hundred. My Man woke me up while stumbling out of bed to the alarm clock. He nearly took out a wall.

But really. Changes I want to see in me? Life changes not just short term failed resolutions.


:::Family first:::

:::God most important:::

:::less (ouch) useless iPhone time:::

:::Be the Best Wife, Mother, Daughter, Sister, Friend, Child of God, Daughter-in-law, Sis-in-law, etsy seller, witness.. That I can Be:::

Ecclesiastes 9:10 (KJV)

Heard My Pastor say this at church this weekend "An Untested Walk (life,Walk with God) is Nothing but a Journey without any Direction"
