{Wanna see where our next family vacation is going to be?}

Check it out. It's over 1 year away but I cannot wait to sleep in a treehouse, ride the zip lines, river raft, see the redwoods and caverns! Doesn't it look like fun!


Right around Christmas time I decided that I really do not love to sew! Patience has never been a virtue of mine and as most of you sewers know you have to have a lot of patience to finish a project! Well I pulled out the machine today to make a blanket for my mom's friend. Her baby's room is going to be a pirate theme (she got the stuff at Target and it's really cute) This is what I came up with. It makes me mad for a number of reasons, but at least those reasons are hidden on the inside of the blanket ;-)

And this is something Amelia helped me with right around Halloween when we visited...this was a lot more fun. I actually like making these!

We had Easter at our house. This is my favorite holiday to host! This year we did a family breakfast complete with french toast casserole, breakfast burritos and mimosas! It was delicious and the start of a new tradition. The kids loved their baskets from the Easter bunny and really enjoyed the egg hunt in the yard.

For our house that is! We've been going through some changes here over the last month. Our home has received a major facelift. We had the siding replaced, the whole house painted, added some new landscaping and of course I added some decorative touches. A new roof next year and this place is golden. It was really fun having a vision for the exterior and seeing it come together. I forgot to take after pictures, I'll have to find some from before, but if you've been here you know the difference!

{My Nephew}

Last week was a pretty exciting week here. I got to meet my nephew, Mylan, for the first time! The kids were so excited to play with their new cousin. He;s actually 7 months old now, but they live in Oregon, so we don't get to see them more than once or twice a year. We love and miss you o much Mylan!

I was featured for the circus themed baby shower I threw for my brother last year. Wow that was neat to see my pic on her blog! Thanks!

{It's my favorite time of the year!}

Yep that's right it's spring and I love it! I have to admit that there are a lot of times during the summer that I am hating living in the inland empire, but you can't beat spring here. The weather is wonderful, perfect and it smells amazing at my house thanks to the orange blossoms. But here's my favorite part, my men in blue are back! Yep that's right "It's time for Dodgers baseball!" Rick and Logan went to opening day today and I will say I was jealous I couldn't go, but they had a great time and that's all that matters.

{Too Long}

It's been way too long, I know but like I said I cannot figure out how to get my pictures smaller? But here are a few that I took from my phone recently. This is especially for you aunt Paula!
