The day after…

Happy belated Valentine’s day, everyone! I hope it was a day filled with love and fun =) I wrote here about creative ideas for the man who has everything and/or you live in a household that does NOT need any candy because the wife will eat more than the intended (yeap, that’s me, lol)

Anywho, I seen bad boy while perusing the Internet from Mom of All Trades! Isn’t it a beaut. She did a fabulous job!


I had to try my hand at it so I enlisted my mother-in-law’s help and we came up with a gift that Trav was in love with!


We were heading out the driveway this morning and he said, “Shoot, I forgot to pick something off my bouquet!” =)

Valentine’s ideas for the men in your life…

I’m always grasping at ideas on what to get Mr. LCH for Valentine’s Day. I used to go WAAAAYYYY OUT and make him a huge basket of all sorts of candy, chocolate, and what not but that was before we were married so it wasn’t in my house on the bar waiting to be eaten by ME. So, with the help of Pinterest (isn’t she great?), I’ve found some interesting gift-giving ideas…

This fits my Mr. to a tee, lol

This just made me chuckle. You could think of something cheeky yet cute on the card.

Although he doesn’t need ANY more socks, I could reuse a pair, lol, just for the cute factor

New paint tool!

While perusing Pinterest, I came across It’s Great To Be Home’s review about Sherwin-William’s new online paint helper, Chip It! I have seen other sites somewhat similar to this but not one that ever gave me exact colors of a brand. So, needless to say, this is something I’ve been needing. I have a Kitchen board on Pinterest and most of the kitchens have the same feel, same colors, etc., but it would be nice to find out what paint color they used. Okay, here goes…

I picked this pretty kitchen pic from my board. It’s from Grace Happens! You should check out their before and after. Very pretty =)

So I entered my url in the paint tool…


It then asks me to select an image…


And VOILA, I got this…


I clicked on “More Colors” and got some additional chips…


I don’t like ALL the colors represented here but the cooled blue, fashionable gray, and extra white make me happy =)

Isn’t this the coolest ever. I’m probably late in the game with my discovery but I like it!
