lizmariegalvan I haven't done a #FridayIntroductions in a long time so here we go! The hubs just snapped this photo of me in my new favorite shirt from @houseofbelonging. A daily reminder to me to live courageously through the hard times & the good times. With God on my side it's pretty easy to be courageous through all the trials of life. Here are 10 little facts About me, Liz Marie: I wear fake glasses a lot when I have sleep eyes, it hides them well. Try it. I can't go a day with out decorating something or making something. It's just in me. I'm so thankful for social media because I have met some of my best friends through it. I met one of my long time best friends through MySpace & she's one of the most special people in my life. Love you @rachleaphoto! I have had many many jobs in my life. One of the weirdest was working at a tattoo shop. That only lasted a few weeks. I was born with a full head of black hair, but it's getting much lighter as I get older. I get a lot of joy of throwing things away & donating things. If I'm having a bad day I will go through our house with a box and a garbage bag and toss & donate things to make me feel better. Works like a charm. one of my favorite things to do is try new restaurants. Mr. LMB & I eat out a LOT. Boba tea is my favorite drink ever. Black milk tea with 50% sweetener & honey bobas. If you live by a Panda Express go now and get one! I love Jesus, but I cuss a little. Oops. Working on it! it's so nice to meet you & if you are new here, I do these every once in a while to introduce myself. They are super random, but fun! You should do it to! Introduce yourself & show us how weird you really are. LOL Happy Friday everyone!! Love you mucho! #MeetMeLizMarie 6h

lizmariegalvan We didn't wake up until 10am & it's only because the doorbell rang & we got a huge shipment of this wine from @murphygoodewine. It's their operation Homefront wine & @craftsmandrive will be doing something fun on his blog with them soon. It may involve building some awesome furniture. Stay tuned for that! Love my veteran & how he is wanting to help out his fellow veterans by supporting this cause. Drinking our coffee on the couch & both looking forward to opening this bottle later tonight. Happy Friday everyone! #LMBhome 11h

lizmariegalvan Last stop on my surprise birthday day with the hubs was of course coffee! I didn't take any pictures at stop #4, but we had lunch at the downtown market & walked around. Today was perfection. Now off to dinner with my family! It's so amazing to be home in Michigan for my birthday! #LMBturns27 #grandrapids 2d

lizmariegalvan So, tonight on my birthday-eve I want to just say that I'm not perfect. I mess up all the time, my DIY's aren't always winners, & there are some things I may never be good at. But guess what? No one is perfect & sometimes it feels good to just say it & show it! That's why I blogged this DIY clock today. I messed up on it, but I still wanted to share it to just show that not all my DIY's are blog worthy. See more pictures on the blog & how I made it [even though I messed up & it's far from perfect] Lizmariegalvan.com - link in my profile. As I get older it's just easier to accept my imperfections & one of mine is using a level haha What do you think of my DIY clock? #LMBhome [tap photo for sources] 3d
  •   nld_me Happy Birthday! Love the clock. 3d
  •   kristinamorocko Imperfectly perfect! I see nothing wrong with it. Happy Birthday beautiful! Keep inspiring, you do it well!! @lizmariegalvan 3d
  •   melanie.mccarthy.90 Happy birthday to you. Love the clock too! 3d
  •   ranchhouserehab Love this! And, happy birthday! I hope your have a wonderful day 2d
  •   holly_moyer What's wrong with it @lizmariegalvan??? I love it! Stop doubting yourself. You are talented and an amazing artist! Besides, perfect is boring!!!!! Own who you are perfect imperfections and all! Perfect stuff comes from a store! Hand made stuff has character and THATS what people desire! REAL. #bam! lol love Ya girl 2d
  •   klacustom Beautiful 2d
  •   suewaldron I just posted my diy clock that I hung and immediately decided I didn't want! It's 4' in diameter and I put 3 holes in the wall hanging it! Nope..took it down 2d

lizmariegalvan You guys! We named our house! & with the help of @houseofbelonging we have this beautiful sign with our home name on it hanging in our upstairs living room. I always tend to name our homes we live in [this is house number 4 in our 8 years of marriage] so it seemed fitting to put this house's name on a sign! I'm obsessed with it & I think it makes our living room extra cozy. You can see more photos & details on the blog today: lizmarieblog.com - link in my profile. If you want a pallet sign like this, use code lmbpallet15 for 15% off in @houseofbelonging's etsy shop! What do you think of the sign?? #LMBhome [tap photo for sources] 4d

lizmariegalvan Added a wreath to the guest bedroom door. I'm now thinking every door in our home needs a wreath. I seriously love this room & could sit in it all day. What do you think of the wreath? #LMBhome [tap photo for sources] 5d

lizmariegalvan Lazy Sunday puppy snuggles. They finally got their hair cut! See 10 photos back to see the "before" photo of them. Oh, & the guest room has always been their favorite because they can look out the window & sit on the bed in the sunshine & now that I'm finally working on the room it's becoming my favorite too. #LMBhome [tap photo for sources] 5d
  •   micheleelvis I love the throw blankets. Where did you find them? 5d

  •   rpetersphoto Lovely!! Would you mind DMing me a close up of the pattern on the bottom/left blanket? I love the triangles in the stitch! Whenever you have time... 4d

lizmariegalvan Today we got some pretty sad news & even though we've been laughing & going on with our day together like normal, it still is on our hearts & minds. As I was decorating our guest bedroom these flowers showed up on my doorstep from @scoutandnimble & what perfect timing! Celebrating the first day of spring & this beautiful life we live. Putting these flowers in our guest room below this sign that @heatherelizabethphotography made for me seems pretty fitting right now too. & now our guest bedroom smells amazing may I add. I'll most likely be revealing this room next week on the blog so stay tuned for that! Happy spring friends & I hope you are all having an amazing day no matter what! #LMBhome [tap photo for sources] 1w
  •   karilynne3 I love the transparency of your posts. You don't have to let any of us in to your private world, but you do. And it helps me feel like I'm not alone on my hard days. Sending love to you & mr. LMB 7d
  •   j.crossondesign Those lamps are on my wish list 7d
  •   wicksnest Hugs... 7d
  •   frillsandflightsuits What a gorgeous space and sign! Amen. "He is still good".....always. 7d
  •   taberahgem Praying! 7d
  •   frantzfeatherings That framed print! #speaktruth 6d
  •   jenmigonis I'm so sorry for your sad news, Liz. Praying for you! 6d
  •   rufflings Sweet Liz, have you ever looked into cardio-lipin antibodies as a cause of your miscarriages? Breaks my heart to think of you agonizing over another loss so just wanted to throw that out there, just in case. We tried for 8 years to get pregnant and in the mean time adopted our daughter! We had 3 sons {in-vitro} after we adopted Ella {including twins!}. I remember the aching that came with these struggles and my heart goes out to you. Praying God gives you clarity, and covers you with peace. 6d

lizmariegalvan So, I bought this tray from @homegoods for a baby shower I'm planning on Saturday [my beautiful cousin is having a little boy!] but of course I decorated the tray and put it in my kitchen until it holds cupcakes this weekend. What do you think of it? #LMBhome [tap photo for sources] 1w
