When I was a kid, we loved to make friendship bracelets out of embroidery floss. We would weave different designs and give them to each other. It was so much fun. We even took it a step further and started weaving them into pieces in the back of our hair. Oh the memories. A couple […]

For some reason we are just not that into decorating for Christmas this year. Usually we go all out and make our yard a sight to see. This year none of us really feel like it…. so we decided not to. But you know me… I can’t just do NOTHING with the yard. So I […]

I love being crafty! About a month ago I found out about somewhere that we are going at the end of the month and ever since my mind has been going crazy about what to wear. I thought and thought and thought and finally came up with something. We need to wear wings! Blue and […]

I was surfing around on the internet the other day when I ran into a picture of something that gave me a really good idea. I wish I had saved a copy of it but I didn’t. I did however save the idea in my mind. This is what we did. Lily stood out in […]

A couple of months ago I was on Pinterest and I saw a Halloween costume that blew my mind. As soon as I saw it I was in love! I saved a copy of the picture to my phone and have been thinking about how I can make it. I am crafty but I am […]

A couple hours after Lily put her balloons in the freezer we thought it would be a good idea to shake them up a little before they froze all the way through… DON’T DO THIS. I will explain why later. Just leave them alone… DON’T TOUCH THEM ONCE THEY ARE PARTLY FROZEN. This is what […]

I was on Pinterest not to long ago and I saw an article about how to keep kids busy during the summer. I showed Lily one of the articles about making homemade ice globes. After she looked at it she said something like “Well, what’s the point?” I didn’t have an answer I just thought […]

Ever since I made that t-shirt the other day my mind has been going crazy with other ideas. I made two more today! I Shoot People and Cleverly Disguised As An Adult. I totally crack myself up. And YES I will be wearing these T-shirts this weekend!

Yesterday morning I had Lily comb through pictures of herself on my website and pick her ten favorite pictures. Once she put ten pictures on the desktop I had her narrow it down to her top four pictures. She is funny because once she got down to about six she was struggling to get it […]

A couple weeks ago I was going through a box of stuff and I found a cute little toy cabinet with a penguin on it. When I first saw it I knew exactly what it was but I wondered what I could possibly do with it. It is not very big… actually it is quite small. […]

Today I made the world’s best frosting in the world and I have to share it with you guys. Earlier I told you about making rainbow cupcakes so I needed something to top them with. These are the only ingredients you need. Granulated Sugar, Real Butter, Flour, Whole Milk and Vanilla Extract. First you combine […]

I have been running into lots of articles about people making rainbow cupcakes so today I decided to give it a try. The first thing I did was make the batter per the directions on the back of the box. Then I seperated the batter equally into different bowls. I put approximately 1 large cup of batter in each […]

I would guess that about 80% of the people that come to our house at one point will end up in the pool. The math is pretty simple: San Antonio + dessert climate + 90° or more outside + big blue wet pool in the backyard = POOL TIME! So now imagine that when you leave my  house you forget your sunglasses. Next time you […]

What would an Easter weekend be without dyeing some eggs? Remember that dye I showed you the other day? Today was the day! While I was at work Lily and Amanda boiled up every egg that I had in the house. She made a comment that was something like “This is the least amount of […]

Around 10am Cameron was back and they started playing again.  I asked Cameron if she had a birthday present for her Mom today. I know it’s her birthday because we were invited to […]

Today I went with a group of friends to a studio named “Painting with a Twist“. Basically you bring a bottle of wine or champagne and your friends and you learn how to paint a painting. The instructor stands in the front of the room and step by step shows you how to paint the painting. […]
