I'm starting a new category with all things homemade and crafty.

Here is my own personal craft process:

Find something adorable
2. Obsess over how cute it is for a couple of days
3. Tell all of my friends about it
4. Finally decide to go buy all of the materials for the project
5. Somehow involve my mother in the project (why? I don't know why.)
6. Put all materials for project into a cardboard box
7. Let that box sit on my laundry room floor for 6 months
8. Let the box get on my nerves for about more month
9. Finally put that box in the garage where it won't bug me anymore.

And Voila! Soon you will have a house full of unfinished crafts. It is quite the accomplishment.

Enough about me though, let me direct you to someone who does it 100X's better than me. Her name is Jill and she does all of those awesome crafts you've been dying to figure out. Plus, she puts the templates & tutorials on her blog (awesome).
Check out her diaper wipes clutch, diaper cake, vinyl bibs, tote bags, quiet books etc.

I'm lovin' the wipes clutch. I wonder how that would look in my garage............

If you are looking for the most adorable baby shoes you have ever seen..... look no further. These shoes were given at a baby shower I went to last night and were the biggest hit! (forget about the sleeper I got a Target!) I'm going to link them in the "Baby Accessories" category. Or here.

baby slings

I am now officially a sling advocate. Let's be honest, once you have your third kid, you need those extra hands! This is the first baby that I have used a baby sling with. I have LOVED it! Especially in the 1st two months! Not to mention he loves it too. When he was a new born I could tell that he was so comfortable to be snuggled up tight to his Mama. Plus, he looked cute.

This is a new baby "must have". There are a couple links to
sling web sites under Baby Accessories.

crap pot

So I tried one of the crockpot recipies.......... don't think I did it right.

I went for the easiest recipe I could find. There were only 3 ingredients for heaven's sake!
1 Jar Spaghetti Sauce
1 Box Noodles

Layer the ingredients, turn on crock pot. Simple enough eh?

Well, my noodles were crunchy and seriously dry. I think I would've done a lot better opening a can of spaghetti o's. Perhaps if I had doubled the sauce and cooked in on low it would've worked better. Or, maybe I can just stick to what I know...............take out.

I'm still not giving up on the crock pot yet.

I'm having a lot of mixed emotions about summer this year. On one hand, I can't wait to be warm, and get some color on my legs again. On the other................holy mama, I DO NOT want to prance around in a swimsuit! I've thought of using the "I just had a baby" excuse over and over, but my baby is 5 months old now! Plenty of time to get on that treadmill! Well, I've got 12 days to memorial day.
Wish me luck.

Mothers Day: For me it's a day of feeling the overwhelming love for my kids but, also the day that I feel the pressure of not being good enough. It sounds strange, but I'll tell you why. We receive adorable gifts from our kids filled with poetry hand prints and photos in the morning. Then, you are off to church. Let's be honest here, getting your family entirely ready for church by 9:00 is not only a struggle, but will put anyone in a less than cheery mood.

When I finally get settled in my seat I am then bombarded with speakers rambling about their "angel mom's". Then, I start worrying about what will happen if my children ever get asked to speak in church on Mother's Day. Will they say things like "My mom constantly called me a little turd", or "My mom threatened to send me to another family" etc.

That's why I am a new fan of this woman's blog: "The Meanest Mom". Not only is she a great writer but, in her day to day life she helps up remember that we can't all be "angel mom's" all the time. Sometimes we are just the Meanest Mom alive.

Check out her link on the sidebar.

random thought

My MIL owns a cleaning company,
and as sweet as she is.......
I'm sure she cringes when she sees the state of my house.

C'est la vie right?
Or in her case: asi es la vida....

new do's

So the other day I thought I would "shake things up" in my 6 year olds normal hair styles by putting a part in her every day pony tail. (instead of just pulling it straight back)

I know, goin' a little crazy with that hair right?!

Well come to find out there are TONS of fun blog from ladies doing fun stuff with their girls hair! They even give you step by step instructions!

But, here is my question: Do their girls hold on to their ears, scream bloody murder, wake up their babies, and give them anxiety attacks while doing their hair? If so, PLEASE someone post the remedy for that!

Anyway, I had to put up a whole new category on the side bar just for girls hairstyles. Now I have no more excuses for plain hair!

We all know that there are TONS of cute things out there for the little girls,
but what about the boys????

Do y'all know of any cute new things/accessories made for the little guys?

muchas gracias!

Thanks for all of the blog suggestions!!! Keep 'em coming!

P.S. I'm really intrigued with these crock pot dinner blogs!
Tomorrow I'll be trying out the Chicken Parmesan in the CP!
I'll let you know the verdict.........................

blog under construction

I'm always finding the cutest things while doin' a little "blog stalking" but, afterward I can never remember where I saw it!!

So, I thought for my sake I would put together a little blog directory full of fun businesses, funny sites, recipe blogs etc. Hopefully with help from friends find some more fun stuff to put on it!

I'll be featuring my favorite finds weekly. Also, trying some things out!

So friends, feel free to browse my directory, and please email me at or leave a comment of more great blogs/sites to add!
