{DIY} Painted Door Mat

I wasn't sure I would post this project but I do love my fresh little door mat even though it's far from perfect.
 But hey, this blog is all about "imperfect domesticity" so why not?!  I picked up this inexpensive door mat on one of my trips to Ikea.  I wasn't sure where I would use it but I knew I would.
 I made my own stencil by printing out "bonjour" on card stock in a font that I liked and then cutting it out with an X-acto knife.  
 I taped off a small box and spray painted it red, then taped off an area to paint a blue stripe. 
The first spray didn't give me enough of the red wording so I put the stencil back over and re-sprayed.
So, it's more of an abstract bonjour.  I'll know next time to make a more substantial stencil. I can always repaint it (I added a white stripe with acrylic paint too).  It has freshened up the entrance from our garage into the house and that makes me a happy camper whenever I see it!  
Perfection is so overrated!
See you back here tomorrow for Friday Favorites! I hope you'll link something up!!

Let's keep in touch!

Catching Up:Weekend Fun

April was a very busy month for us and the last weekend also kept us running.
 We started with Mr Click's band gig which is always a good time.
 Having fun after the show.
 My mom and her beau came out to see them too!
 The next night we headed to the beach!
We were invited to Wildwood, New Jersey for the night.
 It was pretty cool and overcast but I like when it's not crowded.
We had a great dinner and lots of good conversation with our gracious hosts.
 The next morning we were up super early and grabbed some coffee for a walk on the boardwalk.
It was quiet and a bit eerie but beautiful.

By the following weekend,we were ready to be home and just chill.  We started with a relaxing dinner at a favorite local Mexican joint.
We got to see Avengers: Age of Ultron which made Mr. Click very happy.
On Sunday we invited our friends out to brunch.
{here's my outfit}

The weather was gorgeous (the guys ended up going golfing later that day).

 While we waited for our table, we explored the town a little bit. This was a war memorial that overlooked the river.
We checked out this pretty restaurant garden too.
 The brunch crew!
 Later that day we went to a garden center to pick up some herbs for Miss High School's garden.
 I always get distracted by all of the beautiful flowers.
 They have some really beautiful displays at this store.
This mini orange tree was amazing (and not for sale).
What about that full moon?!  Do you remember that moon from a few weeks ago?
Let's keep in touch!
