Bless-ed Day

Packed up the family for a trip to Orange County today. One of those special days where all you can do is realize how blessed you are. Me & this amazing family of mine are right where we belong. Every where I turn. I just smile...I am surrounded by SO many amazing things, there is no denying it! Perfection. ♥

Cuddle day!

More hospital time today, but, on the bright side I was ordered to go home and snuggle up in bed for the rest of the day :) I was thankful to have my love bugs there with me & some movies to keep us entertained!

Had a nice day of shopping this morning. Came home, put my girls down for their naps...go out to garden....and my lillies are GONE! O_o they were justtt there when I got home. So I guess someone either came and picked them all..or something ate them :( Sad. Luckily most of the other flowers are still there :/ and my bitty grapes! can't wait to eat themmm!

My baby girls, truly, truly, take my breath away.

Proud to be Productive!

Oh freezer cooking. How I love you so! Because instead of feeding my family quick crap like spaghetti o's, I can give them a good meal, that's still just as quick. It's a win-win!

Today I accomplished some homemade full size pizzas for us as a family, I can easily survive without a store bought frozen pizza. These actually cook even faster and taste better and are ten times healthier :) I also did up some veggie purees for Alexa & muffins for Ava.

Ava is also running low on some quick lunches--so I made a to do list for the rest of the week, shouldn't be too bad & we'll be stocked up for awhile :)

anddd, last but not least, we got the window panels in today & I think they will work perfectly :) Just need to pick out a nice rod for them this weekend!

I hate to brag but me & my hubby make quiteee the team! ♥ Now to find the perfect placement for their bookshelves, hmm!

Lots to do today!

We had lots to do today! I got some coffee to give me an extra kick, then we were off for groceries at the commissary. Which is my new favorite spot to coupon! They do most of the work for you, which is nice! Today we stocked up on FREE pasta!

Craiglist dresser project! :)

This dresser needs some touching up, but I figured it would make for the perfect project dresser! Some of the hardware is falling off, and the paint needs touched up, but nothing too crazy! But I loved the shape and detailing and that it would fit perfectly & the best part was the price! So, here goes our project! Hubby's going to help, of course! & the second best part, was that we got the paint a few months ago for 3 dolla as one of the gallons Home Depot sets out that they mismatched! So, the entire thing comes in at under $40 :)

Ava says "Oh my! What is a princess to do with a boring white dresser?!" Lol. :)

anddd the painting is done, still have to finish up painting the hardware!
