Summer has been crazy for us like everyone I'm sure. It's a day late and a dollar short but we just got back from a small weekend vacay so it's technically my Sunday still.

This weekend we went and watched Jarr's younger brother play in an All-Star football game and we got home last night at about 3:30. So today we slept in, ran a few errands, did laundry, and I made some goodies for Jarr to take back with him for work this week.
He's doing an internship about 5 hours away from home so we only get to see him on the weekends. I'm so thankful that I get the weekends though. It might be all summer but at least it's only 5 days at a time.

Today has been a day of snuggling with my fur babies and playing outside.
I love spending time with my babies. Remy got spayed on Thursday and had a little hernia removed from her belly so she is a little cone head for a few weeks until she gets all healed up. She has been so good though and I'm so proud of her.

Peaks: Finals are OVER!!!! Woooohooooo I cannot express my relief to be done with school for the year. We both had some really tough classes so this is a nice break for us.
Pits: That means that Jarr leaves tomorrow for the summer. He will only be 4 1/2 hours away but we both work full time and we won't know what his weekend schedule will ever be like so it could be a long time without seeing each other.
Praises: I passed my hardest class! I was really worried about passing it because I'm going to be honest, Spanish is not my forte. Three semesters of it and now I am finally done. I cannot thank the Lord enough for helping me get through that.
Prayers: For my sanity this summer, I will be at home all summer with the fur babies by myself. This will be a first with Remy. She is a handful at 5 months as a German Shepherd but she really is a good puppy. I just hope she stays that way when dad is gone and mom is really in charge. We will find out who the real alpha is this summer.
What are your Peaks, Pits, Praises, and Prayers this week?

After my base coats I used a grey-blue paint I got a free quart of at Ace. I love this color and I have it on a few different pieces in my living room so it worked out perfect that I used it on this mirror.
Then of course I distressed the frame and showed off the great lines and the original wood color. You can also see some of the white base coat show through in some spots which I love. To fix the hanger on the back I just bought some wire at Ace and used the attachment pieces already on the back of the mirror. All it took was some wire cutters and pliers to get the wire secure on the hangers. This mirror is very heavy to we had to make sure it was put into a stud. I would definitely suggest always putting heavy items into a stud. This is a very important safety precaution.
I think this mirror turned out great. It looks wonderful on my wall above our love seat. Now just to make something to go on each side of the mirror. It needs some accent pieces.

These are some more of my crosses and another coat rack that I absolutely love the handles on. Those handles are just great and I think they really add something special to this piece.
This sign wasn't quite ready for this show. It still needed to be distressed some before it made its first showing but I couldn't help but take it. I love this gray coffee table and its gorgeous legs.
What do you think of my craft show set up? Any tips, tricks, or things you would like to suggest I do?
