Stoakley Family Garden 2012

Image
Last spring, we planted a garden and it was fun to watch it grow and we got a fair amount of veggies from it. You can read more about our garden last year here, here, here and here.

So a couple weekends ago, we planted a new round of plants and seeds.





Camille planted only flower seeds in her garden and we planted a few more seeds to the left of Camille's space for Clyde's "garden".

In the larger area, we planted strawberries, lettuce, tomato plants, and jalapeno seeds. I also planted cilantro, basil and parsley in a pot this year. I checked out a few books from the library about vegetable gardens but I am not sure I learned too much. We will see what happens.

Agent Open House

I had an agent lunch last week at my listing on Wishart Court. This is such a great home. It was nice to have so many agents come by to view all the wonderful features this home has to offer. For more details on the property, click here.

Emily with Terrance Jones, Darius Miller and Michael KG 


I will not lie, I am a little jealous of her right now ha.. how does she always end up with famous people?
(yes I am calling those 3 "famous"...they will be in the NBA next year so that's famous in my book!)

Look who was so exhausted after the game that he had to take a little nap with his two favorite squirrel toys...

Hahaha <3 him!

Weekend Recap

Image
We had a fabulous weekend at Keswick celebrating the wedding of a good friend from high school. Michael's parents and my mom shared care duties for Camille and Clyde and we enjoyed two nights of fun with our friends.

Our room was so cute and the hotel had such a homey feel.









I wish I had taken more pictures. But trust me when I tell you we had a blast!

Week Catch Up/ OOTD/ Frankie & More

TGI-the weekend!!
I have so much to catch up on!
This is major random ... so I'm apologizing in advance!
This past week was so beautiful here in KY,  so we had to enjoy it and be outside a little ...
I got some flowers for our back patio, busted out the patio furniture and cushions and got it all spiffed up for Spring :)

We went to the park on Wednesday night and had a picnic with the kids (I just spelled that picnik because I'm so used to typing that and then had to correct myself hahahaha!) Picked up KFC (their choice ha) and ate on a blanket, enjoyed the weather and then played at the park for a while! So fun!

 I've picked up a few new Easter things for the house... still need to pull out my old stuff but these little knick knack patty whacks were too cute to pass up from Pier 1 ... LOVE all their Easter stuff!

Love the bunnies! I had to refrain myself because I could have bought every single solitary Easter thing in that store! If you go... you've been warned :)
OOTD I d…

Coffee Table Found!

Image
I have been on the hunt for a coffee table with cleaner lines than the round table that was currently in my living room. The round table was actually my first wedding present, a gift from my grandmother, and so it has a lot of sentimental value. I am definitely saving it because one day I may find a new spot for it in our house.

Last week, I ventured over to Class and Trash and found this great table for $18. It was buried under another table and quite a bit more classy trash. I immediately noticed it seemed to be in fairly good condition, sturdy and the size was right. I also was attracted to the bronze detailing on the legs. And how could I resist an $18 price tag. 




When I got the table home, I wiped it off with a dish liquid solution. I normally like to use white vinegar and water but was out of vinegar. Then I took an old toothbrush and some Brasso and scrubbed the brass detailing on the legs. The toothbrush helped make this process quicker but it was still not the most fun task o…

St. Patrick's Day Recap

Image
Hope everyone had a great St. Patrick's Day!!
I celebrated mine based around this...

We had tickets to go to the YUM Center in Lousiville to watch the CATS play!!
It was totally packed!!
We actually got tickets to the game before that too which was Murray St vs Marquette ... any fans? That was a great game too!
Of course I wore my blue in support of Big Blue Nation :) But I did sneak a little green on me...

LOL, just a hair tie/bracelet ... but enough not to get myself pinched all day ;) (I think I'm finally getting obsessed with Instagram now, where have I been? How am I just now on the bandwagon???)
Before the game we went to eat at The Old Spaghetti Factory in downtown Lousiville... one of my favorite places!

Our seats were awesome... on the suite level in the terrace...

(I think the man behind us was smiling too haha)
The Cats played an AWESOME game, despite shitty refs the entire time! They pulled out a big win over Iowa State ...

87-71 ... GO BIG BLUE!!
So if you know anyth…
