Mini Golfing Cont.

Ok so at said Mini Golf course they had these funny statues sprinkled around and of course I couldn't resist a pic or two. So funny :D





Mini Golfing

My parents, sis, fiance, and my family all went out for a family game of mini golf. Of course bets were made and I will now be making cookies for my sis and her fiance. Anyone have an amazing peanut butter cookie recipe? We had a blast!




Inspiration

While visiting my Grandma! I found these beauties! The are match book covers. Her mother made them! I am totally in love and am going to make me some soon that is as soon as I have time for all that detail!



My Sister is Getting Married!!!

Sensational Sun Sets

We have been having the most AMAZING sun sets lately! They are too beautiful not to share... Enjoy!!!



New Years Day


We started a new family tradition this year. Tom & I wrote down some predictions of what we thought would happen during the next year. The kids wrote about there favorite things, drew a picture, and said what they wanted to happen most in the next year.

We then sealed them up in this cute box and put it away with the Holiday decorations to be opened Jan 1, 2012!


New Years Eve Fun!

Every New Years Eve we have a tradition of having a fancy dinner at home by candle light. We also always have sparking cider. The kids love to drink from the fancy wine glasses!


But there was one small problem... I had no time to cook this year!!! I had to work! So what's a girl to do? Panda Express to the rescue gotta love that orange chicken!


After dinner I left for work feeling bummed that I would not be able to kiss my hubby at midnight. But, you gotta do what you gotta do. Then I got the most pleasant surprise... I got off work early at 11:30 and was able to make it home just in time to smooch my sweetie! What a great night!



This was the temp when I was driving home from work! -4 Holy Cow FREEZING!!!

Day 2- Computer Desk Top
This was a pretty easy challenge for me it was really just cleaning up some of the clutter that had found its way here over the holiday season. And then rearranging to give me some work space...

I also finished putting together my budget binder. In it is a calendar, a list of monthly expenses compared to our income, and page protectors to put my bills in to pay. And of course I had to put some of my favorite pics on the front! I LOVE these! They always make me laugh. Which is def a good thing when it comes to paying bills :)



21 Day Challenge Day 1

Day 1- Junk Drawer
Todays challenge is to clean out a junk drawer. I don't really have a junk drawer as I have limited drawers so every drawer has a very specific purpose. The junkiest drawer in my house would have to be my nightstand. It tends to be a gathering place of things that need a home. I started out by emptying out the drawer and only putting back what I really use in that drawer. The result was a much less cluttered drawer.
