a summer wreath

made this today.

tons of fun. and not too hard either.
i used everything but the wreath itself from things i had in my house.
i wrapped the wreath in some sack cloth (or cheese cloth, or whatever it's called) kitchen towels i'd purchased at walmart that didn't end up working for a different project.
i used this tutorial for the pin wheels and glued them on the wreath.

i like it. :) hope you do too!

a little of this, a little of that

i have not blogged in weeks. bad blogger. bad.

sorry friends. life has been....well, just life.

i've been super blessed with etsy orders lately, and so i've been working hard in the craft room.
my little man is getting super big and we've been doing a lot of playing and cooking.
waiting for cinamon rolls can be so hard

i've also been busy growing the newest member of our family.
she is a strong one. seriously looks like i have an alien in my belly sometimes! major wiggler.
i am obsessed with some of her favorite things are:
strawberries or most fruit for that matter
peanut butter & apples
peanut butter & chocolate
chocolate and peanut butter ice cream
ranch dressing...on anything.

i've been doing some crafting. and that makes me feel good!
my brother-in-law is getting married and i was in charge of decor at the future sister-in-law's family shower(yippy).
we went simple, but with a few fun pops of color
i also used flowers from my mom's garden for the decor.
don't these just make you want to cry they're so beautiful.
made a few gifts for the bride.
one was this chalkboard frame for her kitchen, the other was a wall "K" for her new last name. didn't get a picture of that one though. bad blogger remember.

that same day i also had a wedding too. then i went to my grandfather's house in paso robles while my husband was fishing for the week.

if you live near paso robles go to birch. it's the most amazing fabric store i've ever been in. ever. did i say most amazing. i died. almost spent the hubby's entire paycheck in the store. but had to use restraint.

all in all it's been busy. but good. hope your "this & that" has been good too!

i am so glad you chose to marry me six years ago today.
you made me a beautiful bride. not because of my dress, but because of the joy that i had inside knowing that we were going to finally be husband and wife.
i am so glad that you saw the 'me' inside, and not the 'me' i was trying so hard to be.
you are so much the better half of our relationship.
you challenge me. to be better, to try harder, to enjoy more, to let go when things need to be let go.
you make me laugh. a lot.
you make me cry. sometimes.
you make me so very happy. always.

you made me a mom. and you had the confidence in me that i would be a good mom.
you gave me the greatest joy i could ever have with the birth of our son.
thank you so much for that.

you work so hard for our family.
you sacrifice in ways many will never understand.
i miss your company like crazy when you're at work, but i so appreciate your work ethics, and your love for our family.
i know that you put our family first. that is so rare these days. you value our time together and desire to be with us and invest in us.
you are a man that others desire to be around because of your character and great personality.
i am so proud of you. every. day.

you two together make me melt. i could watch you boys play all day.
i love how he wants to be you so badly.
i love that when you have a tool in your hand, he needs a tool in his hand.
i love that he is your shadow and is sad when you aren't home.
i love that you both sleep exactly the same.
he may look like me a lot, but he is all you. and i wouldn't have it any other way.
after six years of marriage, and a total of 11 years together,
i am still m.a.d.l.y. in love with you.
you still make my heart skip a beat.
you still make me absolutely crazy at times.
you are still the person i want to go sleep next to at night.
you are still the one i want to go to the movies with and make fun of the
jr. highers with.
you keep me grounded, laughing, sane, comforted, and safe.

i am yours.
i was 11 years ago when you asked me to be your girlfriend.
i was 6 1/2 years ago when you asked me to marry you.
i was 6 years ago when i said "i do."

i am so much more today than ever before. totally and completely yours.

i love you Mr. K. with all of my heart.

the day is over

it's been a tough week.

and since mama can't have a martini or some x-rated liqueur over ice, i have found a new love.

well. not new. but i have found a great way to start the end of my day.

i have a plate with apple slices, and two trader joe's semi-sweet chocolate bars. then i add a small bowl of jif natural crunchy peanut butter.


i sit on the couch, watch dumb t.v. and my day is instantly better.

grab the new ipad and enjoy scrolling thru pinterest, and my fav bloggers. get some cute idea's for baby girls room.

i want to do a gallery wall of photos, quotes, and such. here one idea:
might not use this picture, but i love the quote!
