The 8 Month Adventures of Miss P

Ok, does anyone out there know how to slow time down?! Seriously?
My baby girl just turned 9 months old! How is that possible?
I've even started thinking about her first birthday (never too early, right?) which is CRAZY! 

On that note, here is a recap of Miss P's 8 month adventures. 

Monthly photo shoot as always! 
Two new additions to this months shoot though- Bottom TEETH!! 
Finally after months and months of teething, those little buggers decided to pop on through! 
And now we are STILL waiting for the top ones to appear. 

Travis and I headed to San Diego for 8 days and while we were gone Miss P got to spend quality time with her Gramps and Gammi (my parents). It was fun for all!

"Lucky" St. Patrick's Day Wreath

I shared this tutorial on Mom It Forward right before Valentine's Day and thought I better share it with you guys too! 

I don't have much St. Patrick's Day decor. We aren't Irish and so I have never thought about decorating for it.
I bought this small wreath stand on clearance after Christmas and thought why not finally put it to good use by creating a small St. Patty's Day wreath for it. 

So away I went to get creating! 
 It was super easy to creat as well, which is always great! 
Here's how I did it.

Supplies:
-Wreath Form
-Yarn
-Felt
-Ribbon
-Twine
-Faric Marker
-Hot Glue Gun

Sponsor Love: Old Barn Rescue

I would like to welcome A Glimpse Inside's newest sponsor, Old Barn Rescue!  


 They specialize in hand-drawn vinyl decals and upcycled home decor. 

 Here is a little more information about them from their "about" page

"This business adventure began in 2003 when my dad told me he needed to tear down the barn from my childhood farm. I couldn’t stand the thought of all that beautiful, weathered, 120-year-old wood going to the landfill or burn pile.  With the encouragement of my friend, Adonna, we gathered some of the wood, collected a stash of old “junk”, started creating, and Old Barn Rescue Company was born!"

I would have saved some of that wood too!! 
You can find a ton of fabulous vinyl decals in their shop! 
Here are just a few: 


Lots of great personalized decals

Lose the Paint Can Clutter! An Idea from my Husband

Howdy everyone! 
My handsome hubby is here today asking for a little help to get an idea he has made. 
So please read through his post and vote for his awesome idea!! 
Thanks! :) 

Hello fellow DIYers! My wife, Allison, has graciously allowed me to guest blog so I can ask for your help. 

Pile 'o Cans
Like many of you, we do a lot of projects around the house. Almost all of those involve paint, and as a result, we have a huge stack of paint cans in our garage. Most are 1/2 to 3/4 full, which we could use for a future project or touch-ups.  It would be a waste of money and hazardous to the environment to throw them out, but they look bad, take up a ton of room in our small garage, and eventually rust or dry out.  I thought to myself, "There has to be a better way!" The answer must meet the following criteria:
1. Save Space (smaller container)
2. Save Paint (no rust, little air)




The Solution!

After much deliberation and tinkering, I believe I've found a solution.  In the kitchen, if we want to save leftover food, we  use tupperware or vacuum-sealed bags to keep the food convenient and fresh.  I've taken this concept and moved it to the garage.  What I propose is a series of screw top plastic containers in 1/4, 1/2, and 3/4 gallon sizes.  The screw top ensures that the container will be air tight and spill proof.  On the side of the container, a plastic sleeve would be available so you could slide in a paint swatch or other piece of paper with information such as color, mixture number, and/or location in the house (bedroom, bathroom, etc.) Being plastic, they will never rust and are reusable.  Being a smaller size, they will take up much less space, and since the paint will fill the majority of the container, paint-drying air will be significantly reduced.

Pinterest Inspired Recipes

I ACTUALLY made some recipes that I have pinned on Pinterest! 
I am quite proud of myself. I RARELY make anything that I have pinned on Pinterest. 
Travis was super excited that I was making all new meals and some were going out of my box a little. 

They were all delicious and were put on our "make again" list.

Click on the links below to view the recipes from their original sources.


Hope you try some of these! 

ENJOY!!
