Feature Yourself Friday!

Hello, friends!

Hope you all are having a wonderful week and ready to show us the highlight of it. I'll tell you the LOW of my week, remember my spider issue? Probably not because I only had one person who read my blog back then. Well you can read about the night I almost died here. So spiders, yes well, they're back. Please don't come and comment and say "It's spring, one or two spiders in the house is normal!" Because, girlfriend-- Let me tell you something. Tuesday night, I went to lock up the house and get ready for bed to look up at the ceiling and saw 17.. not one, not two, but 17 spiders. Big ol' guys. I wont show you a picture but you can google Yellow Sac Spiders. Yeah, enjoy that.
I'll give you a minute to let it soak in.
Ready? Okay.
Needless to say the girls and I have been staying at my mom's house and the pest control has been notified. Good thing my other half was around to talk me down from just packing my bags and moving out right then and there leaving my 3.5 lb chihuahua to fend for himself. :) Anywho.. Not much time to blog when I'm living a real life arachnophobia movie here.

Lets leave that alone and get on to last weeks deliciousness.

Since it was Easter we saw some pretty mantles.. Oh lala.

Remember my SOS for the amazing Laundry room? Well check out her bathroom! Sausha's my new bff, she just doesn't know it yet.

Isn't this bench the cutest thing you've ever seen? That fabric is a SHIRT! Love it, I'm ready to scrap my red toile for this. Unless Tracey will just send it to me?

Baby rooms like this one, almost...just a tiny bit...sort of... gives me baby fever...maybe. ;)

Jenn made a super cute new job survival kit! Adore this idea!

Don't forget to stop by my dear friend Nancy's blog, she's having her giveaway for her first year of blogging! She was one of my first followers and I've adored her ever sense! Everyone likes to win stuff, and it doesn't help that she's super sweet and worth following.. Go do it! Let's surprise her and tell her I sent ya! Make her day for me :)

Ready, set GO!

I'm with you, that nursery gives me a little bit a baby craving.

Unknown said...

Awww, thank you! That's so nice of you to give a shout out! I didn't google the spiders because I have a fear of them, too. Good Lord! I can't believe there were 17!

Those are some awesome projects you featured...gotta go take a look at their blogs!

Thanks again!

I'm with you, I'd move out and let the spiders have the place! Can't wait to see what treats everyone has to share. Thanks for hosting.

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

Girl, I don't blame you one bit! My friend moved in with her mom this week b/c they saw a small snake in the house and now they can't find it. :s I don't blame her either!

Shannon said...

Oh my gosh, 17?! I'm impressed you even stayed long enough to see that many, I think I would have been gone after one. Actually, back when I was in high school there was a wood spider on one of my shirts in my closet once. I refused to come home until it was killed...and I swear that thing gave me PTSD, for years after I'd get anxious flipping through the clothes in my closet!

Pauline Wiles said...

That nursery is ultra-stylish and I'm intrigued by the new job survival kit, too. Off to check that one out!

Leanne said...

Yuck! Sorry about the spiders. I would be freaking out too. Great shout outs for this week. Thanks again for hosting!

Kimmie @ Hello Mess said...

You forgot to mention the other 6 that you saw AFTER you counted the original 17.

Glad you girls are safe and that Mr.P will be home soon.

I promise to decorate a nursery just like that one for you if you move here. <3

Sarah @ Sugar Bananas said...

Sheesh, that's a sickening amount of spiders! I would have flipped!

On a lighter note, thanks for hosting :) Happy Friday to you.

Chris said...

Are you kidding me? 17?? I don't mean to freak you out, but those are just the ones you could SEE! I, too, would have moved out right then and there. HATE SPIDERS. Let us know what happens! I hope someone saves your life! :) Good luck!

Tracey @ My House of Giggles said...

Oh my goodness.....I would have DIED!!! 17??? eeeeeeek. You poor thing! I hope they're long gone now.

Thanks so so much for featuring my little bench! :) I'd love to send it to you, but I'm pretty sure the shipping would be a touch pricey ;) You can find the same men's shirt at Old Navy right now. $12 :) said...

Girlfriend - I feel your spider pain! Here in the Northwest we have Hobo's - and they are big bad and ugly! We leave the house for awhile and bomb the heck out of them.. quite gleefully actually..

Thanks so much for hosting!

Carolyn @ My Backyard Eden said...

We get black widows here, but they're usually outside. I'd move out too if they were inside.

Thanks for hosting today and I hope all of the creepies are gone soon!

Tracy's Trinkets and Treasures said...

Thanks for the party and the story. I had a mouse issue that I was embarassed to share about. I always thought mice liked dirty houses, but I promise....I clean. I might have to share it someday. Crazy.

Katie said...

I've got a little bit of a kid in me enough to google image thos nasty suckers and gross! Yeah, I can see why you are staying somewhere else. Eeeewh, shivers. Blah!

Jenn @ Delicious Ambiguity said...

Thanks so much for the feature. I'm honoured! ;)

Amanda said...

Kristi said...

Let me just tell you that I googled them the other night and I HAVE THEM TOO!!! Not 17, I would have a cardiac arrest, but I have killed two since reading this post. Enough to creep me out!!!! I read that these spiders share "more bedspace" than any other insect!! OMG Hello NIGHTMARES!!!
ANyway, I was too distraught to hook up to your linky party, LOL. Hopefully this Friday! :)

Mandi @ Sweetly Home said...

Hey girlie girl! I just wanted to let you know that I tried clicking on the link provided in your wrap up of the baby's room - and it goes to the site for the bench. Just wanted to let you know!
