The supplies needed to make a burlap wreath that is ALL the BuZZ around blogland! I had to make another trip to Michaels to get one more roll of burlap ribbon. Took about 2 hrs to achieve the finished product......which I LOVE!!!! Hard to explain how to do it! Make sure you use different size loops when pooking thru the rings of the wreath. You want the loops to be different sizes and going in different directions (or I did anyway). When you start and finish with a roll of burlap, tie it off with wire. I used 2 1/2 rolls of burlap. I attached the B using some twine I had on hand. I spent about 17.00 bucks making my wreath. I had two 40% coupons from Michaels which I applied towards the ribbon.
I LOVE the natural look of the wreath. Love using burlap around the house! Happy Wreath Making!
Charlotte and I took our kiddos to Chuck E Cheese during Spring Break. We usually try to do something together with our kiddos when we are out of school.
My boys with their loot from their tickets. They had saved their tickets for YEARS, so they could get better "junk" Caleb had some tickets since 2003.....no joke! Rylee had over 1800 tickets, and Caleb had over 1300 tickets. Wish they could save $$$$ that well!
To kick off Spring Break....my BFF Charlotte and I hit the town running! First, she treated me to an early birthday treat....spa pedicure! Which included mango rub, some minty stuff, hot towels on legs THEN the pedicure. Needless to say my feet were in desperate need of some TLC!!!! My feet thank you...Char! Then off to supper and a movie! We ate at O'Charley's....pigged out on some hot, yummy rolls! Nothing new was playing at a decent time, so off to the cheap movies we go! We saw Red Tails!
Left: Charlotte's ......Right: Mine
Nothing like having pampered feet....so I hear an AMEN! :)

He likes school, BUT he would NEVER tell you that! :) He received an Honorable Mention Ribbon~ so proud~
Welcome to the Barnett Family Blog. Taulbe and I have been married for 15 years, and we have two precious boys. Caleb is 13 and Rylee is 9. I currently returned to the working world as a 1st grade teacher after being at home for 12 years. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. Also, I enjoy being a pretend photographer, decorating, and gardening. We have an extended family that lives outdoors and in a fish tank. The boys and I are CrAzy about our pets.I enjoy the simple things in life....playing in the dirt, sitting on the porch, holding hands on the couch, and an ice cold Sun-Drop. I think if you act like a kid...you will stay younger and live longer. I love watching a episode of Young and the Restless and lately curling up with a good book. I hope you find something interesting while looking at what I have been up too. Thanks for looking at our lives. :)
