Saturday Fun!

This morning we got up nice and early to take Kendall to see Elmo!!

For her birthday we bought her tickets to Sesame Street Live.  I think she enjoyed it, but it was a tad bit too long...I think they could have cut it short by a few minutes:)

She was funny though clapping and singing and dancing...

Today we are staying low at home.

I have to work on PL since I am now a week behind and I can't have that happening!

We have a little game to watch at 6:09 tonight....No big deal (yeah right!) 

We REALLY want those CARDS to win tonight...can we get you to cheer them on?

I know that not everyone outside of the state of Kentucky knows how big of a deal this game is!  Like BIG:)  If we win I will probably do a little dance of my own!!!

I am going to try to get my house back to order.  I finally got all the chairs and tables put together...I need to clean up the laundry room and the upstairs and then we should be back to normal!

 One more week until Spring Break and I need it to be here like NOW:)

A 2 Year OLD!!!!

I have been majorly missing from my blog lately for a great reason!  We have been busy, busy celebrating a sweet little girls 2nd birthday!  Today is the actual birthday and I just can't believe it.

I. have. a. 2. year. old.

Say what?

How does it happen so fast I don't know!

She is napping away right now after a LONG busy Kendall Minnie Party yesterday!  We had a lot of fun and I will share pictures with you soon. I am weeding through them...I have a few posts that I need to do and I will try to get them all up this week!

I took tomorrow off because a sweet little girl has her 2year well check up.

I did take the pictures you are seeing the other day at my mom's house.  I loved the idea of using the very old fence in their backyard to take her pictures. 

I am in the process of making a Shutterfly book, because I got a FREE code the other day...perfect timing I do say:)

Hope ya'll have a had a great week and are enjoying all of this great weather!

And of course I can't leave without saying......

Birthday Decor Progress: Minnie Party

I worked all day yesterday on Birthday Decor and I am so excited at how it's starting to come together!  I didn't do a whole lot and I am probably not going to do a lot more, but it's looking good I think!!  Of course I am just showing you bits and pieces and will be sure to share with you everything when it all gets put together!!

Here is my lanterns that I worked on forever to get just right.  I was going to use just two and then I really liked the idea of all three and then I wasn't sure. I finally came up with this and like the way it turned out!

Pin It

I also had fun working with these cute little signs that I got at Hobby Lobby.  I think they turned out super cute!  I can't wait to fill the paint buckets. I wish I didn't have to use the red one, but I only had two white ones.  It's fine though!
Pin It

I have a few more things to finish up and then we just need to deep clean our house before the big day!  Our plan is to get a bouncy which we will probably never get the birthday girl out of, but it will be fun!

Pin It

Can't wait to share the big day and all the details with you!

Here is my to do list for the rest of the week.

finish Kendall's b-day outfit
make a birthday sign
clean the house
put goody bags together
add a few more decor items
get out my spring things!

And I am sure I will add to the list all week:)

Happy ALMOST Spring yay!!

Much Better!

We are doing much better around this was a LONG week.  Last Saturday morning we woke up and Kendall got sick three times within and hour.  I thought it was just that she was congested so I gave her some meds including Zofran (thankful for a ped. that gives us these things to keep on hand!) 
 BOY was I wrong. It was NOT was the nastiest bug EVER, and everyone that came within contact of Kendall got it.  I am not even kidding.  My mom, my dad, both my brothers, my mother in law, Chris, and myself.  It took it's course.  What's even crazier is that my older brother was in the room for less than five minutes with Kendall and got it!  It's deadly I tell you, and I sure hope it's gone from this house.

Tomorrow I will be doing a LOT of scrubbing around here.  We have a very important celebration next Saturday and my house needs a lot of loving after this week.  I am finally caught up on laundry!  I spent the day doing laundry, getting birthday decorations done, and shopping for a special someones party and gifts!

 We also enjoyed a partly pretty day.  It's storming now and I have to admit I love a good spring storm when no dangers come with it:)

I am so glad my family is back to normal and I am so ready to tackle this house, this week, and a fun party with extra special friends!!

Have a great Sunday everyone:)

Meal Planning Monday: Take 1:)

First, I have to mention that I recently started reading a sweet little blog called Finding Hope and she is so cute and so is her sweet little girl Emily!  Well, I entered her Erin Condren giveaway and guess who won???  Yep, that would be this girl...and what's so funny is that I bought a 25 for 50 dollar on a flash deal site yesterday morning and then found out I won!! That's OK cause I literally want the whole top two things right now are an iphone cover and a big desk calendar for my classroom for next year...I have one here at home and LOVE it!

OK moving this same sweet blogger is now hosting a Monday Meal Planner here:

And I literally just bought this at Staples this afternoon! It's from the Martha Stewart Line and I LOVE it...We hung it on the fridge for our meals each week...Chris and I are both watching our weight and exercising (I am 3 POUNDS from my goal weight!) So, we are really mindful of what we eat for supper each night. I have been planning our meals out each week so I thought I would play along with Meal Planning Monday!  (I don't have a white board eraser so I have to bring one home from work tomorrow!)

So, here is my Meals for this week:)

 Fried Chicken Finger Salads (This is one of our favorites!)
Marinated Pork Chops, Bob Evans Mashed Potatoes, green beans, and corn
Smoked Sausage, Potatoes, and onions (this is a WW recipe!), green beans
Pasta (Probably just spaghetti this week)
Chicken, baked potatoes, buttered noodles,green beans, corn
Tuna Casserole, green beans, and corn
Out to eat! 
We have green beans and corn ALL the husband doesn't eat many vegetables so you will notice that I make them with just about EVERY single meal:)  I don't mind really because I like them too and sometimes I make myself a little extra something that I like that he won't there is our pretty boring meal plans for this week!

We usually eat out one weekend night or both just keepin it real here!  But, it just depends on whats going on.  I really try not to do a lot of eating out during the week.

I have to share that I made these:

And seriously they are more like candy than granola!  I LOVE them and will definitely make them again!

Enjoy and I hope to find some new and good recipes through this link up!

Thursday Tidbits!

Can I say that I LOVE three day weekends! I am so excited that tomorrow we have the day was suppose to be a snow makeup day so I didn't think we would really get to enjoy this day off, but we have had NO snow days this year which is a NEVER. 

Kendall and I have no big plans so we are just gonna hang around the house and maybe go to lunch with my mom..we are going to our church fish fry tomorrow night and I am excited...LOVE their fish!

WE have had the craziest weather here all winter long.   I can't even remember a winter like this in my lifetime.  We always have one good snow that sticks around for a few days.

Monday we woke to the prettiest snow I have ever snow..It was that white thick snow that didn't stick to the roads, but to everything else and I thought it was so pretty, but guess what it was gone by 2 because it was 60 on Monday, yesterday it was 70, and today rainy and 50...I think our weather has a little problem with making up it's mind:)

Kendall saw the snow on Monday and that was the first time since last winter that she has been out in it.  Of course last year when she saw it she wasn't we didn't hear "Oh no mommy my shoes"  or "Oh nooooo get off!"  She wasn't a fan of the snow on her was cute. I wish we could have played in it but we had to get to work and the sitters and it was gone when we got home!  Oh well there is always next winter.  I say this because I am done with snow and ready for SPRING!

Yes I love Spring..My husband reminded me tonight that Valentine's was a month ago, so I guess this weekend I just might bust out the spring decor and I am so OK with that!  Think I will start tomorrow:)

Oh and there is a little special girls Minnie Party coming up in two weeks that I should probably get to working out:)

Have a great weekend ya'll

Project Life Tuesday: Week 9

Can you believe it is week 9? I can't and I can't believe that we only have 45 more school days until summer vacation..It is coming so fast...and I am excited for our summer vacation to Hilton Head! I can't wait...

On to PL.  I wanted to take a moment and say how impressed I am with myself and keeping up with this project...It is far more easier for me to stay up with it by printing my pictures each week and getting the entire layout done rather than just sharing my pictures...I am completely caught up and that is such a good feeling..I have never been this caught up.

It's also worth mentioning that I decided to do a weekly layout rather than a picture a day only because it took a lot of worry and stress off of making sure I had a picture every single day!  Here is my layout I hope you enjoy!!
 Here is the whole layout...nothing big this week. I did use a collage on the left page and the page with 10 2X3 slots on the other side!  I think it turned out pretty cute!
 My goal is to include at least one of my couch to 5K completions each week...just so I can remind myself that I am still doing this even if it's the death of me!!
 I included one picture of our field trip to the Kentucky Derby Museum...and a few of Kendall being silly. I took a really funny video of Kendall on March 1 and I had to include the cover of the video because it reminds me of how funny the video was:)
 And I just had to share this with...Kentucky Weather...Friday 75 and tornado weather and today 2-3 inches of this white stuff.  I have to admit it was really pretty driving to work this morning!!

Hope you enjoyed my week and please remember to check out more great PL Tuesday posts at The Mom Creative!
