Wordless(ish) Wednesday: My Love Bug

This little love bug is growing so fast and boy oh boy is she bringing the sass. "No" is her favorite word at the moment and if it was not so adorable when she says it I might get annoyed but I can't help but smile every time I ask her something and she says "no." Her other new thing is standing at the backdoor as soon as she wakes up screaming "PLAY!" It will be no surprise that she will live outside this summer. I love her little personality but I am missing my little bitty baby.

Menu Planning Monday

I have really been examining the way we eat around here and I came to the conclusion we need some definite as. Snacking will be different as well as our meals and beverages. I have never been a pop drinker, but juice is my guilty pleasure. I recently discovered the crystal light pitcher packets and they are wonderful. Here is my plan for dinners this week:

Monday- Pork roast, carrots, potatoes, cheesy garlic rolls

Tuesday- baked tacos, rice These look so good.

Wednesday- Ribs, baked potatoes, salad, baked beans

Thursday- Baked Ziti, salad, bread sticks

Friday- Crock pot Enchiladas This is a new recipe too. Hope it is as good as it looks.

Saturday- Homemade Pizza. This is our family movie night. We do a picnic on the floor and watch a movie. Little Miss loves it.

Sunday- dinner at the in laws

Bubble Babys Review

I love to find fun seasonal clothes for little Miss to wear. It is so fun to match clothes with seasons, and holidays. It is fun to find cute clothes period for little girls, I could spend a fortune if my husband let me. When I saw all the cute personalized clothing in Bubble Baby's shop I was in heaven. She offers such unique styles and the personalizations are just fabulous.

The Bunny shirt she sent me for Little Miss has been a huge hit. Not only was Little Miss thrilled to have a bunny on her shirt, but anyone who has spotted it on her has given nothing but compliments, It is perfect for this Easter season, and she will  definitely be wearing it to our local Easter egg hunt.

Bubble Baby's not only offers cute shirts like this, but she has adorable bows, pillow cases, and Aprons.

Easter Bunny Pink Ribbon Hair Bow
I just love this cute bunny bow. Also, a perfect seasonal item.

If you have a little girl, Bubble Baby's is a great place to go for clothes that will be sure to turn heads,

Wordlessish Wednesday: Family photo

We got our family photo taken last night. I usually do all of Little Miss's photos, but can't get a family shot. Olan Mills had a cheap little package for Easter and I took advantage of that.

We look a little silly, but I love our little family. :)

Where are you Spring?!?!

So much for the first week of spring. Last year at this time we were wearing shorts because it as already so hot. This year, this is what we have been doing:

Little Miss was happy to build her first snowman, but was ready to come in as soon as we were done. I can not wait for it to be warm enough to take her out and just let her run off all the energy this LONG winter has built up.

The weather has been a great big tease. We got a big snow a few weeks ago and the next day was around 55 degrees. We thought for sure that was it and it would be an uphill climb from then on. All of a sudden we were back in the 20's and getting ANOTHER snow storm. Once again the snow is melting just as quickly as it fell. The perfect type of weather to make you sick! I have my fingers crossed this is the end of winter, and I have a feeling Little Miss does too.

Catch up

Wow, I am WAY behind in my blogging! Things have been very hectic around here but everything has settled and our schedules seem to be getting back to normal. I have lots of reviews coming up so make sure to stay tuned!

We took an impromptu trip the the Children's Museum this week. I was skeptical about taking Little Miss, because I was unsure on how much she would actually be able to do. I am so glad we decided to give it a try. She ran and played non stop for 6 hours straight. It was so amazing watching her learn, explore, play, and have a genuinely good time. I love watching her have fun. It makes me so glad to be her mommy.

The sand area was her favorite. She spent a lot of time here. It was really hard getting her to move on. We came back to this area at the end of the day so she could play some more.

She rode the carousel twice and smiled the whole time both times.
The water area was really neat. It teaches so much about dams and water movement. Little Miss loves getting wet so this was right up her alley.

She loves alligators and was so happy to see this big guy. Her favorite song is the alligator version of row row row your boat.

We had a great time and hope to go back soon. Little miss wore herself out and fell asleep as soon as she hit the car seat. :)

Custom Touch Sewing Review/ GIVEAWAY!!

Little Miss is getting very into clothes, especially dresses. Anything frilly and she goes nuts. She laughs for a good 10 minutes after putting something of this nature on. When I saw the ruffle dresses that Lori from Custom Touch Sewing makes, I knew that Little Miss would not only love one, but look adorable in one too.

(she is laughing because she got to wear this dress)

When I received the dress Little Miss would not take it off. We had to go to the grocery shortly after and she threw a tantrum because I told her we needed to change clothes. It is very lightweight and comfortable, and will be perfect for nice get togethers this summer. I have a really hard time finding dresses that can be dressed up or down and that are actually comfortable for Little Miss to wear. This is honestly the perfect dress for that.
                                                               (she seriously LOVES it)

Custom Touch Sewing make many different types of handmade items, my favorite of course being the ruffle dresses. The pillow beds she makes are also very adorable and useful. She also has so adorable blankets and pillow covers. You can not go wrong with this company. Lori is very easy to work with and will make your shopping experience the best it can be.

Lori;s main experience has been having a decorative sewing workroom and working with a lot of designers in California who used her as their workroom for custom decorative sewing. She likes to offer that service too to anyone that may need home sewing done. The ETSY shop has been more to supplement the other sewing since she moved from California to Texas and it's been hard starting over from scratch. You can visit her home sewing website here
