Still Raining

While rain can be soothing and cleansing.. provide the perfect backdrop for curling up with a warm cup of something and read.. Droplets   available in a variety of sizes.. ready to frame and hang. When you are going on day three of what seems like a never ending downpour I say enough is enough! Praying, hoping and wishing for some sun and warmth soon..  Get my post directly in you inbox with  Bloglovin I am now also offering ad space.  See  Sponsors  for more information .  Newsletter Sign Up - Let's Stay Connected, Shall We?


it's been busy around here.. TV has been mounted on the brick wall.. harder than it seems. Curtain's have been found, bought and hung.. i promise pictures will come soon.. we've been so busy doing that I haven't found the time to take pictures.. and I usually have to hide all the baby toys and laundry lying around before I take any pictures.. I shall continue to live in the denial that I have a tidy house : ) We have a space near the garage and laundry room area that is sort of in limbo.. so we built some shoe organizers and a giant calender.. we'll call it command central.. again pictures to come soon I promise! The boys are getting along wonderfully.. THANK GOD! We have glorious weather one day and then it becomes frigid the next two.. I do not like this.. I need spring.. Over the weekend we decided to venture into the attic.. the door is in the ceiling of D's closet. A ladder was bought so that M could climb up and we were surprised by what we

D Behind the Lens

D has been obsessed with taking pictures and he likes to use my phone to do it. He has already broken the screen twice and I would end up with hundreds of pictures of his foot or a red blurry blob on my phone. And not to mention having to fight with him to get my phone back! Instead we decided he needed a camera.. and after much researching and review reading we went with the Playskool Showcam It is toddler proof.. he has already dropped it a few times. It has big buttons for easy usage.. and comes with a view finder meaning he gets to shoot like mommy :) It has a few other gimmicks I don't care about like noises and you can put a pirate hat on your pictures and things like that.. but the best one is the camera becomes a projector. With the flip of a button D can view all the pictures he just took standing inside our dark pantry his choice of location not mine. Here are some of D's pictures..   The resolution, not so great

A Place to Eat

Our dinning area started out with our old rug and old dinning table while I searched for a new one. pinterest pinterest I really liked the style of the windsor chair and how about that bench? The process of searching for something is made so much easier when you know exactly what you are looking for. I didn't want a chunky looking dinning table or chairs to weigh the room down.. finding the perfect one was surprisingly easier than I had expected. The only down was that the bench didn't make the cut. Now the question was to rug or not to rug? Originally I had thought rug.. of course a rug. But when we got around to determining how large a rug we would need.. by rule it should be at least 2 feet larger then your table on all sides.. and since we bought a large table my in laws will be moving in soon the size of the rug we needed was going to be very big.. which would end up hiding so much of our floor we would have gone with carpeting if we wan
