Hello again! 
I know you're shocked I'm writing because you probably thought I had fallen off the face of the planet! Basically, I did. But hopefully now I'm back again :) 

Here's a glimpse of life this week from the photos on my phone...

Playing dress-up...this little lady is a girly girl! 

Prepping for Papa Date Night
Pink Polish was non-negotiable

So Little E's birthday is coming up in a little over a baby will be 2! 
Here is her big surprise from Mama and Papa.
Can't wait to see her face when she sees it! She's always wanting to cook and I think she'll absolutely LOVE this!

With the upcoming birthday, there will be a celebration...I'm working on decorations this week. Thanks Pinterest! :)

We have a busy weekend ahead with The Hubs having class tomorrow morning, teaching in Training Hour on Sunday, teen ministry meeting Sunday afternoon, and elder meeting Sunday evening! Whew! This weekend isn't going to be much of a break, but we'll enjoy it while we can!

Happy Weekending to you!

For this post, I am linking up with LifeRearranged! Join us, won't you?

help needed!


Okay all you bloggers/followers! I am having a dilemma! 

Little E (formerly known as Baby'll see why her name changed in a second) is turning 2 in just a few short weeks! I can hardly believe it! Someone please help me find the last 2 years of my life! 

Never mind that, here's the issue I need your help with! 

I know cupcakes are all the rage right now
we had cupcakes last year for her party.

I wanted to do something different this time.
Initial thought was ice cream sundaes but The Hubs shot that idea down by saying, "Its too cold for ice cream". 
Second thought, cookies! Either several different kinds or decorate sugar cookie, but that's pretty messy for little 2-year-old hands. 

So, I'm kind of back to square one! 
Inspiration is running low, so I'm calling on you--my faithful readers! 

What are some of your ideas?


P.S.--did you notice you can follow me on Twitter now? Yep! Just click on the little birdie right over there --->>

complaining day?

We all have them. Those days when nothing seems to go the way we want it to. 

I know I do! 

Here's a little video to give you some perspective today! 

May you have a day filled with recognizing God's gifts throughout the day!

For you this Friday

Hey guys! girls! 

Aren't you just so pumped that it's Friday?!? I know I am! 

Just for the sake of it being Friday, I wanted to give you guys a little gift--a few links to some of my favorite stuff from this week in the blog-o-sphere! 

Finding a Mentor :: {From SimpleMom}

Make Your Own Waffle Mix :: {From SimpleBites}

Slow Your Home :: {From Slow Your Home}
I stumbled across this earlier in the week. 
Its a great site with lots of tips for a simpler life. 
I signed up for the 7-day Slow Home Boot Camp and its been a great challenge so far! 
Try it!

Homemade Playdough :: {From Five Seasons in the Sun}
We made this last week and Little E loves it! I only made 1/2 the recipe and divided it to work in two colors--green and purple. Throw a few spoons or plastic forks on the table and watch your toddler go to town (at least, mine did)!

There you have it! 

Hope your weekend proves to be restful and enjoyable...we're road tripping (without children...well the one in the womb, but the other will be with her grandparents)! You'll hear all about it soon!
