HELLERRR!!! Im BACK! Has it been QUIET...

HEY LADIES!!!  Im BACK...has it been QUIET???  Be nice!

FIRST!  I want ALL of yall to know I have not been on the computer AT ALL, so I am WAY BEHIND on visiting everyone, saying 'Boo' and seeing what you have all been up to...Im SO SORRY!!!  I will be back into my groove at some point this week...so, I havent been uninterested...just incapable last week!

 
Well, a quick recap of my last week...Last Sunday night Kolton opens our bedroom door AROUND 11:00
and starts to say MOMM.....{NOW, insert the image of Linda Blair, in the movie "the Exorcist", PROJECTILE PUKING pea soup...only it wasnt pea soup and my baby was NOT in, aaaahhh, Linda Blairs state of being}  BUT it came out that way and HUGE MESS on carpet!  Eeewwww!  So I am tending to him and putting cool washcloth on his neck till I can get him in the shower.  MEANWHILE, back at the Ranch {not REALLY back at the 'Ranch'...thats just a good ole Texas sayin}  Back in our bedroom, the HUB is useing our HANDY DANDY Bissel carpet shampooer...YEP!  The one I asked Santa for this Christmas!  Anyhoo, he is cleaning the carpet and we are scurrying around getting carpet clean, getting lil K out of shower, meds for his fever and nausea, moping up bathroom tile, getting old sheets folded up and put on the bed where K will be sleeping {or NOT sleeping, I should say...we were up all night} getting K into our bed...I KNOW....TMI right?  Is it beginning to sound like {Charlie Browns teacher} "wa wa, wa wa wa, wa wa waaa wa waa, wa waaa wa wa..."  ANYHOO....That was the beginning of the "Epidemic" and when I got my PROMOTION to VPO!   The school called me later that afternoon and lil B had thrown up in the library....NIIIICE!  Uhhhh...di I need to bring my BISSEL when we pick her up?  So, im at home with lil K and the HUB goes to pick up lil B, brings her home to me aaaaaand the process starts over again.....shower, meds, pjs, RESTRUCTURING of "Laying in bed positions"....MORE old sheets , and NOW addind the "Im not gonna make it to the potty in time" BARF BOWL!   IN THE MIDDLE OF MY BED!   THEN...not kidding ....GIZMO throws up....?????????????????  REALLY?   He doesnt go to their school?  Dogs dont catch PEOPLE Bugs?!  RIGHT???   Im guessing he was a lil STRESSED with all the ACTIVITY!   LOL!  I KNOW, "wa waa wa wa, wa waa, wa wa waa..."  SO, I of course get it and start running fever Wednesday!   UGH!  So by Friday both kiddos are back at school, and I am SICK and in ZOMBIE MODE!  So my point is....I am WAAAAAAAAAAY BEHIND! 

But you know me...I have a couple of projects going!  I PEELED myself outta bed Saturday and was back to work {at a bit of a SNAILS PACE..for me}

AND!  The blesing from God...Yall remember the story I told you a couple of weeks ago...our Realtor and a couple of other men Realtors came to our house and we went and prayed about the sale of the house, etc...WELL...LITERALLY, like a week and a half after that, Lubbocks Newspaper, CALLS OUR Realtor {and theres PROBABLY 1500 realtors...maybe more...in this city}...but the newspaper calls Cheryl and wants to know if SHE might have a home she would like to be on the COVER and the "Feature Home" in the Real Estate section!!!   HELLLER!  She said YES!  I mean REALLY?  If thats not a BLESSING from God...well...IT IS!   SO...my OCD has kicked ALL these projects that have been on my "TO DO list" for 3 years...SHUT UP...NOT A WORD about that!  Well, lets just say I have KICKED into "Mario Andretti", NASCAR Race MODE! 

So heres what Ive got going!


OK...just had to share this sweet lil moment with my baby girl!  When she was still sick she wanted to hold my hand to fall asleep!  HEART MELTING!



And THIS...I know...so RANDOM...but GOTTA show Liz!  SEE!!!  Are they NOT IDENTICAL???



THIS!  My barrell ceiling in our kitchen....BORING!  Uh Oh...BORING = PROJECT for Kara!
Its just a spot BEGGING for something special!   Right here, CEILING PAINT!   OOGIE!



YAWN!   YAWN!!    YAWN!!!



 THIS is what I had PLANNED for my ceiling!  LOVE the look of Brick incorporated inside the house! 
HOWEVER....I am NOT a Brick layer....{though I may give it a try sometime}
I just need to get SOMETHING "special" done to my ceiling for the "Feature".....



I KNOW!   I SAID No MO FAUX!   BUT!   I STICK by that rule...I have 2 areas that I Faux painted...You all know...My GRAPE faux and the Powder bath....thats it!  Wont be doing anymore "rooms"...but since this is a Ceiling treatment...it will do.....HAS TO!  Cant afford to do what I WANT!   So, i will make do with what I have on hand....WHICH is paint and Glazes...GOT TONS of that!   Im starting the first step with this "Burnt Sienna" glaze....




Starting out...the first few steps ALWAYS look like a mistake!  Faux is RARELY a one step job...So here im applying the Burnt Sienna Glaze....My "Darling" daughter said "Mommy...it looks like CHEETOS!"  GREAT!  Thanks lil B...JUST what I needed to hear!   LOL!!!



It does look a bit like CHEETOS!  Not to mkention this CRUMMY CAMERA I have ...it just does NOT take great pics and NEVER shows the TRUE colors!



Do I smell CHEESE????



{Insert Deer in the Headlights look on my face....AND the other 6 Eyeballs looking at this} 00  00  00




Weeeeeeeeell..............
WOW!   Cheetos coat...Check!  Now...MOVING FORWARD!  God be with me!



Now comes the Copper Metallic...This will change it A LOT!





So girlfriends...I have a TON of work to do!!!  Eeeeekkkk!  

YEP!  Im leaving yall HANGING!  I will have MORE tomorrow  :0)

See you Decorating Divas in 24 hours!

Have a BLESSED DAY!   xoxokara

I cant wait to see what it looks like! I am glad you are feeling better. Hey I emailed you but I had some glitches in my blog and nothing was showing up so I had to recreate a new one so will you please come follow me there its noplacelikehomeally.blogspot.com

Becca said...

Welcome Back!! We missed you and are glad that your family is on the mend. I love what you're doing here ... it's going to be such a beautiful and dramatic feature to your already gorgeous room! Look forward to the reveal. Hugs, Becca

Liz said...

I am so glad your back, I missed you! Ohhhh, Karrrrra, I LOVE where you are headed with your arch in the kitchen. Talk about DRAMA...well, that will definitely add some to the kitchen, FABULOUS idea!

So glad to hear your family is all better...whew! It's no fun being sick.

Oh, and WOW and congrats on getting to be a "Featured Home"...you will have to share the process with us, how exciting!

Umm, and yes, we do have the same curtains, how cool is that?

Well, sweetie, I'm sure you are working hard on that ceiling of yours. I can't wait to check back tomorrow. XOXO ~Liz

LC said...

Hi Kara. Welcome back! I'm happy to hear that your babies are better now and back in school. I am so excited to see what your barrel ceiling is going to look like when it is finished. I made an attempt to faux my fireplace wall a few years ago. The color is almost identical. Cheetos! ha-ha..cute..I like Cheetos!
It was my first attempt at anything remotely different than just regular paint on a wall. I look forward to seeing the metallic copper mixed in with it. I just know it will be beautifully done. My attempt at faux not so much! ha-ha

I can't imagine how your neck must be feeling, painting a faux on a ceiling! =o)
have a happy day~

LC said...

Forgot to say "congratulations", on being the Featured Home and on the cover of the real estate magazine. I can just picture you in "Mario" Nascar mode! ha-ha

Tete said...

I am so glad the kids are up and moving again and back in school. NOTHING like having sick babies to take care of! Or getting puke out of carpet. I have a kitchen waste basket for a puke bucket and it stays with the sick kid until they are done. Just pull the bad and toss it. It's big enough they can stick their head in it, so, most of the time- no mess.
Congrats on the feature. I think I have missed something- are you trying to sell your home? Are you nuts? It's wonderful!
Anyway- can't wait to see the end results tomorrow, but don't over do and end up back in bed!
Hugs- Tete

Melissa Miller said...

Kara that is one gorgeous ceiling girl!

I'm so sorry you have all been sick. You sure were missed. I'm glad to read everyone is getting well now.

Take care of yourselves.
~Melissa :)

Traci said...

I can't wait to see how it turns out. So, did I miss something? Your house is for sale?? I REALLY need to paint my dining room ceiling but I REALLY don't want to do it. It's hard painting above your head.

Allyson Pecilunas said...

Thanks for displaying my button girl! You are the first!! :)

Gypsy Heart said...

You have been missed my friend! So very glad you are all feeling better ~ that stuff is just wicked. Precious photo of little B holding her mom's hand. Such a treasure ~

Congrats on the selection for your home to be featured...that is awesome! They will all be wanting to buy it. Can't wait to see what you will be doing with the ceiling. You should get your husband to hang like a tray thingy for you to lie on and then you can just paint till you can't. No neck & shoulder pain! :-)

xoxo
Pat

Dear Sweet Home said...

Glad you are back! How awesome on the featured home...that is great! I know you will have all your projects done - it already looks beautiful so you have no worries! Can't wait to see the final product!

At The Picket Fence said...

Welcome back to the land of the living sister! I have to tell you that when I saw the pic of the brick on the ceiling my first thought was..."I think Kara could actually do that herself if she put her mind to it!" But, I am lovin what you are doing with your ceiling treatment and cracked up about the cheeto comment. Sounds a lot like something my son would say! Cheetos are a big time treat in our house! :-) Can't wait to see the final result and I know it will make our jaws drop open as usual. :-)

NanaDiana said...

Well, I was going to email you tonight if you weren't back here...I see you are...still being your OCD selt! I can't wait to see your ceiling done. I hope that you house sells soon for you. I know what the market is like all over the country and I am sure you are going to take a hit on it...but it will be good to move on, I know.

Hurry and finish that up, will ya? Hugs-Diana

Denise said...

Hey girl, nice to see you back and feeling all better. I'm all stuffed up with allergies right now but doing ok ;-)

SheilaG said...

Whew, glad you're back to your perky little self! Can't wait to see the finished project. :)

Karen said...

I'm glad the kids are better. That ceiling is gonna be so lovely.

Melanie said...

KARA!!!!!! Hey sweet friend! I'm so sorry I haven't been able to email you back. I think I have STREP! Going to the Dr today and my hubby is back from Africa, but he has a stomach parasite and is SOOOO sick :( So it's been rough. Anyway, I'm completely with you and need to email you back when my brain is working. Would appreciate your prayers.. LOVE and hugs.
Melanie

Carrie @ Dittle Dattle said...

I hope your baby is feeling better! And her comment on the ceiling is so stickin' funny! She must take after you?!?! I love the inspiration photo. I too have long to have brick in my house. I would love it in my mudroom.
