Side Table makeover with Country Chic Metallic Cream


A fun side table gets a makeover with Country Chic All in One paint and Country Chic Metallic Accent Cream. Be sure to see the step by step process to making this little table **Sparkle**.

    Believe it or not, but time is flying and once again it's my monthly post for the Fab Furniture Flippin' Contest™. Every month when I place my order, I have grand plans, but they have not been very grand lately. I just am not physically able to do a large project right now. But sometimes little projects can make a small impact too! This month I painted a fun side table that I rescued from a thrift store in town. I've had it for a while, and it lives in our playroom - where it doesn't coordinate at all! I used Country Chic All in One paint, Country Chic Metallic Cream and a little secret sauce that I concocted. Your gonna wanna see that! This month's theme was Bling! Bling! and I wish my pictures did justice to the shine this piece has. I love the sparkle!

Mondays with Mrs Major Hoff : All The Little Things


This post contains sponsored content and affilate links, but I only recommend products and companies I love. This comes at no added cost to you.

My friend Amy over at Mom Advice does a weekly blog post on things going on in her life, and her 3 favorite things for that week. Since I seem to get a lot of questions, I thought this might be a good way to fill you all in, and still feel somewhat productive in the blogging world. I love seeing what Amy is up to every week and seeing how she is dealing with her own health battle. I hope you enjoy my take on this as well.

Mondays with Mrs major Hoff. What I'm reading, what I'm watching, and my 3 favorite things for this week.

The truth of the matter is I'm not feeling well enough to create very many projects or recipes. I still am, but just not at the rate I was. What I used to be able to cram into a few days seems to now take weeks. I actually spend most of my time on my couch. It's really kind of sad. One errand in a day will wear me out. I have a severe lack of energy along with a constant headache and 9 times out of 10, nausea to boot. To sum it up nicely, "IT SUCKS".

    The heat has already descended upon us in Texas. Although I'm happy to put away the rainy spring days and am glad to be having some dinners al fresco on the patio, I am less than happy to turn the actual oven on. I'm still recovering, and many days it's a feat to put dinner on the table. Right now my meals consist of attempting to be healthy and cooked in under 20 - 25 minutes. One of my favorite cooking short cuts is using Aidells® Meatballs. In today's recipe, I've used their Teriyaki & Pineapple Meatballs with fresh summer produce, rice noodles and an easy peasy homemade sweet and sour sauce. Done in 20 minutes. Want to make it gluten free? I have a simple trick for that.

Free Printable Daily Medicine Chart

This post was sponsored by Nature Made® as a part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central.


Need to keep track of your daily vitamin or medicines? This free printable medicine chart helps you do just that! Perfect for new mothers, for those recovering from surgery, and those who want to remember their daily vitamin. #NatureMade #IC (ad)

    It’s been awhile since I posted, but I’m sure you all know that my health has put blogging on the back burner. My goal for this year was to have a healthy 2016 and to do everything I could to make sure my surgery recovery went as smoothly as it could. Of course, there have been a few challenges. Brain surgery is no joke! The last 2 months have been a total blur. I was really excited when I was able to team up with Nature Made. One of my main goals was to keep my body as healthy as it could be. Even though I wasn’t going out in public a lot, my kiddos were. I was also hanging out in the hospital. Recovery was hard enough. I didn’t want to put a cold or a virus on top of it. So in an effort to boost my immune system and give it a fighting chance, I added Nature Made adult gummies  with Vitamin C for immune system to my daily regimen. Another challenge I had was taking my medicines. My short term memory was shot. Did I take my vitamin? How long ago was my last pain pill? I came up with a remedy by creating a free printable medicine chart that I’m sharing with you today. I added a simple box to check for a daily vitamin and a daily probiotic. I was able to chart doses, when the next dose would be. This saved me on more than one occasion! I hope you will find it handy too!
