~Whatcha Working on Wednesday~

I haven't really been working on to much lately because of work but I did manage to paint my wooden pineapple that I found for $2.00 at the store across the street from where I get my hair done. I just used what paint I had on hand and I think it turned out great...love it! Looks great in my step back:) Here is what it looked like before I put the walnut stain on! Oh, and speaking of work...guess who came in the store while I was working and came thur my line??? Can you guess? I'll give you a hint...she is the queen of crafts, makeovers and blogging. Yep, you guessed it right...

Char from the Pickled Pepper Patch I was so shocked and excited at the same time, I couldn't even tell you what she bought.LOL and lady's I tell you something else she is really pretty! So happy I met her and that she took the time to seek me out at the Dollar Store! Her daughter was with her too so I also got to meet her!

Before work my morning started out with Grandparent's Day at Sydney's school. Here she is at her locker, check out the mirror on her locker door:)

Samantha was there too as it was my day to watch her:)

Stush and I got to go to her room which made me happy, I wanted to see her room and where she sat:)

Hard at work!!!

I can't believe she is going to be 8 years old soon, time is just flying by, I remember the day she was born... me and the boys were so excited and all crowded in the room holding her:)
Have a great Wednesday everyone and stop by My Country Home to see what everyone else is up too:)
