Finished Product

I made the burlap wreath this weekend like I was planning to. It was super easy and cheap to make. I am so happy with how it came out. I suffered some hot glue gun burns on my fingers but such is the price of DIY sometimes. I think I might have to start making my own wreaths; the ones from Pottery Barn or Grandin Road are so expensive and this was cheap and fun to do. I am foreseeing a winter wreath in my future...stay tuned!

Gone Shootin'

Today Kevin and I took the dogs out to the trails in Kingwood and had a blast. Lily went swimming in open water for the first time and did great! Mav, of course, being half fish had to be coerced into coming out of the water eventually but we all had a great time.

Then after lunch we headed out to Thunder Gun Range so Kevin could put some rounds through his new LCP and I could get some more practice with my Lady Smith. I have to say I did better than I thought. I feel pretty comfortable shooting my .38 Special now. And as corny as it sounds I'm glad Kevin and I found something fun to do together. Here's a shot of my target after I was through:

Not too shabby - I got some in the orange! And here's a shot of of Kevin in action:

So this weekend I plan on making the above wreath out of burlap and some fun fabrics that I found online. I am going to the fabric store on Saturday and hope to have the wreath finished by Sunday. I'll post pictures after I finish it!
