I'm Still Here / Friends Giveaway!

I know I haven't posted in a few days but I've been busy with the kids & house cleaning. I haven't really had anything exciting going on in my life to post either, kinda in a slump.

Anyway, I wanted to let you all know about a 100th post giveaway my bloggy friend Ricki Jill over @ Art @ Home is doing! She has reached 100 posts & decided to have a giveaway of some really great stuff! The person who wins, hopefully me, will receive, 4 coffee mugs, the cutest dish towel, 4 dinner napkins ( my favorite, they are sooo me!) & 4 awesome napkin rings! It's quite the giveaway! So very generous! So go check out her blog, which is great & the giveaway items & I think you will definitely agree with me!!

Have a great day!

Flower Headbands

I decided to try making some headbands for LuLu. I love the big flower hair accessories that I've seen on many blogs, so I figured I'd give a whirl. I bought the headbands from Family Dollar. The flowers came from Joanne's.

These clippy things were on the flowers so I removed them.

All I did was lay the headband on the counter, with my hot glue gun added some hot glue over to the right side & pressed the flower down. Once they were dried I had LuLu try them out.

I think they came out pretty good. Next I'm going to try making a few barrette ones.

Have a great day all!

More Snow?!

Ugh.... Here yesterday was a nice day too! I thought spring was finally on it's way! And what do I wake up to this morning? More darn SNOW! Yuck! I'm so over it! This is when I wish I was living in the south! I mean seriously Mother Nature we have enough! This is my garage & part of my back yard. The snow in the yard is halfway up the darn fence!!

It is pretty when it first falls....
But then in a couple hours it'll be all yucky & dirty!
Oh well, not much I can do about it.
We will try to enjoy the day anyway. Kids are on break from school so I need to go figure out what we are going to do today.
Have a great Monday all!

Linking up to Debbiedoo's Newbie Party!

Happy Sunday!

Good Morning!

Made some yummy cinnamon buns for the kiddos! They were gone in a matter of minutes! I guess that's what happens with 4 kids. Guess I need to start making 2 packages @ a time.

hot coffee for mom in 1 of my favorite mugs.

Lazy day today. No CCD for the girls because of Feb. break. Lots of laundry to be done! Guess I need to stop procrastinating & just do it! Dinner tonite @ my mom's, that's always yummy! It looks nice outside, hopefully some of this dang snow melts! I'm so done with winter & ready for spring!! What's on your agenda for today??
