I've been trying to lose that last 10 pounds, that have stayed on for the past 3 years. So today my only 2 pairs of pants were dirty and all that was left in drawer was my " someday pants", well today was the someday! Yep, I fit into them. Not just barely, but really fit. I will admit..... I did a happy dance around my bedroom. I'm not ashamed, it was a very happy moment. It demanded a happy dance! Just thought I would share.


Here's a layout I did of Noah at his Christmas party. It's not 100% done, I'm still on the look out for a few perfect embellishments.

Happy Easter

Happy Easter Everyone! Caden's George helped out with hiding eggs. Not that it mattered. Noah and Ethan are the only 2 that looked for them. Caden just wanted to eat his easter candy.

the sweetest thing

We were short 2 kids last night, they got to spend the night with grandma:) So my husband and I packed up Caden and went to dinner and shopping. Our goal was to buy a few new clothes for each of us. Well I'm in the dressing room trying things on, and Rick yells in for me. He had passed a dress that he thought would look nice on me and wanted me to try it on. Isn't that so sweet?! I just love that he passed something and thought of me. So I got a new dress.

What I'm working on

I've been working on an album for my sister in law, using my new bind it all machine, that my wonderful secret pal got me for my birthday.I'm not quite yet done. There will be a total of 8 pages. Some of them I'll put pictures of my family in and the blank ones will be for her to fill in.I know I have a ton of rookie mistakes going on, but I'm learning:)

our trip to the movies

We took the kids to see Horton hears a Who today. It was Cadens first time at the movies. After he got up and down about 3 times, managing to push back on the guy sitting in front of us each time. Who I'm sure didn't like that. He also kept slurping his drink very loudly, and asking me to stir it, also very loudly. He finally climbed on my husbands lap and fell asleep. He saw maybe 30 minutes of the whole movie. Oh well, the other 2 really enjoyed it. Although, it was a cute movie I wouldn't spend movie theater money to go see it. At least not for 5 people. We could have gone to the IMax for what we paid! Yikes:(

I'll post some art work soon:)

just an update:)

My 3 year olds potty training is coming along well. It's the 3rd week. He's still not telling me when he has to go, but I can tell right away now. Like a true boy he's telling me how big his poo is when he goes. He got that from his older brothers I'm afraid. I swear living in a house with 4 boys really is interesting and kind of gross at times.

Blonde moment

Let me first say that last night was my girls night, so I got home late. Plus my 3 boys were up at
6 a.m. so I got very little sleep. I also woke up with the worst headache in the world, it lasted all day long.
Okay, I'll get to the point. I had to go order my bridesmaid dress for my brothers wedding today. I try the dress on, it's a size to big so the sales clerk says she needs to take my measurements over my clothes. I thought that was odd, why would I put my dress on over my clothes. So I get dressed and put the dress on over my jeans and tee shirt. She comes in the dressing room and says" I actually need to do the measurements over your clothes". I say oh, ok and pull the dress down a bit so she can measure the top, then she says again, I need to measure over your clothes. Then it hits me,mind you it's been a good 5 minutes, I started laughing and tell her I get it now. I shouldn't even have the dress on. She laughs and says no, no you shouldn't. The rest of the time, I'm shaking my head tying not to feel like the dumbest person on the planet. I keep telling her I'm usually not that dense, I'm really not myself today. She was super nice about it, she said it made her day. She needed a good laugh.
Really not my proudest moment.
