So, a few months back I went to the dentist and needed a filling. Not too bad right? Well after it was done my tooth was really sensitive and I went back… he adjust the feeling. Still…no big deal. Still bothered me, but through the Christmas holidays I just couldn’t find time to go… plus who LIKES going to the dentist?? Well…it hurts so bad when I drink anything cold I finally went today.

As I was decorating my daughter’s room I couldn’t for the life of me find pictures to hang on the wall that weren’t a fortune! So, after I made her mobile I decided to put my yo yo’s into action. See my tutorial for the yo yo mobile here. This is what I came up with to hang above her changing table. It’s really quite easy. Supplies– Picture frames (I used 2 really ugly gold frames that I spray painted white..they were free). I just spray painted right over the gold and then kinda roughed it up around the edges… Read More
I’d like to think both my children are snuggly cuddly fall asleep on my shoulder kinda children, my daughter seems to only want to snuggle while wide awake, mama’s cleaning, and bubba’s running around like a crazy 3 year old..aka…SPOILED ROTTEN. She just wants to ride on my hip all day. And her bubba… he’s apparently too old to snuggle now (not that he was ever much of a snugglebug) I have to take advantage of his snuggles IMMEDIATELY when he wakes up, otherwise the opportunity has passed. That is of course if I can run faster than my husband… Read More
So, as you all can tell from my blog and lack of posts, I am rather new to this whole blogging idea! One thing I am discovering I like though is this giveaway stuff!

I am exhausted though between a toddler, a baby, a husband, a dog, cooking, cleaning.. so it is taking me a… Read More
