Chalkboard Paint

So I came across this dog "cutting board" in TJ Maxx a couple weeks ago.

My creative juices started flowing and I thought this would look cute above my dog's food bowls. So I bought a few supplies {chalkboard paint} and went to work!

After I drilled holes in the top I gave it a coat of paint!

I picked up a small roll of cream ribbon from A.C. Moore to hang it and then wrote w/ chalk (duh). I really think my 1st project w/ Chalkboard Paint was a success!

Even the pups love it! =)

Hair Saver

This deeeeep conditioner caught my eye in my latest InStyle as an editor's {cheap} favorite hair product. I randomly came across this at the new Walmart and decided to try it out. For $3 you can't beat it and it leaves your hair smelling great! I highlight my hair every 3 to 4 months and straighten it several times a week and it worked for me!

New Job

For those of you who haven't heard I got a job!! I will be working for West Manor as a wedding planner! Here is a picture of the beautiful venue:

Breathtaking huh?

West Manor is one of Virginia's hot spots for weddings and it doesn't hurt that it provides spectacular views of the Blue Ridge Mountains all around. My first day is on Friday and I will also be meeting a lot of my brides because they will be at West Manor for a tasting. So wish me luck as I start this new chapter in my life and I will keep you updated on the happenings.
