Our weekend

Maddie and I spent the weekend at the Covre Miss Cover Boy National pageant in Dallas! The hotel was beautiful and the girls were precious and fun to watch!

Maddie and I always like catching up with old pageant friends! 

The hotel was FAB

We had a blast and some new opportunities have come to be...stay tuned! 

We spent the rest of the weekend at the pool

By Monday...this was my view....

Had to get my stinkin' gall bladder removed. Ouchy!!!

Anyways....ready for what else summer brings!! Love time off  in the summers!

Front door help!!

I am in dire need of reprinting my front door! It is peeling and bubbling up! My fault....I should have primed it before I painted it 6 years ago! front door and shutters were sage green when we bought the house and I immediately painted them black! I love the traditional black....however now that I HAVE to repaint the door, I am thinking if a bright, fun color! I want to keep the shutters brick and keep in mind the color and tones of my brick. 

I am really loving a bright YELLOW door!

I also love this bright sea blue door

This turquoise color is fun!

This grey, blue color is pretty too!

You can see how the before and after of this house (similar to mine)! The new front door color POPS! Love it!

All of the different tones of blue....

What to do....what to do? What do y'all think?? HELP!!!
