Well, we made it.  Today is the LAST day of school!  This is my first last day of school as a Mom.  Did that make sense? This year FLEW by! It seems like yesterday I was baking up cookies preparing for Nixon to get home from his first day of Kindergarten!  And today I will be filling 650 water balloons to prepare for our last day celebration.   So while I am off making my arsenal, let’s check out the {Read More}

Our Entry Way

Entry Way & Gallery Wall

Since we moved into this little rental house of ours just over 3 years ago, I have slowly been working on a gallery wall on our stair way.   And finally, I think I have it finished!    I know I have shared bits and pieces of these spaces over the years.  But here it is, all finished and all together.   I have changed the colors and arrangement of this at least a few times,  but for now, I {Read More}

I hope you are all having a fantastic week!  I can’t wait to see what you all have been up to! Today is a special day at our house.  Our little Canon Ball is turning two. ( It seriously seems like YESTERDAY that I was pregnant with him! ) He’s certainly not a baby anymore, and has quite the funny personality.   He is such a fun addition to our family, and I can’t wait to spend the majority of {Read More}

Queso Fundido

Queso Fundido Recipe

I love Mexican Food. We eat it more than any other type of food in our house because it is just SO good. So tonight I posted a picture of the Queso Fundido I made for dinner, and my friends all wanted the recipe. What is Queso Fundido you ask?  Besides being REALLY fun to say, its pretty delicious! Queso Fundido is a hot melted cheese often served flambe.  You could also call it the Mexican version of Fondue. But {Read More}

Hello Everyone! Can you believe the week is almost over!  We’ve had the stomach flu over here this week, and I can’t wait to say good-bye to this week! In between cleaning  and sanitizing my house I did manage to make a few updates to my gallery wall.  Right now I’ll share a little peak with you. Slowly but surely this wall in my stair way is coming along.  I have a few empty spots to fill, so while I {Read More}

Raspberry Butter Cream Frosting

Raspberry Butter Cream Cake

Last week when I was shopping at Sprouts, they had Raspberries on sale.  They all looked so red, ripe, and juicy, I just couldn’t pass buying a couple of pints up.   But then once I got them home, what was I going to make with all those Raspberries? Cake of course.  With the yummiest raspberry butter cream frosting you will ever eat.    There isn’t a single drop of food coloring in this frosting.  The bright pink color comes {Read More}

Hello Everyone.   I have been in such a blogging rut lately.  So when I got an email from my dear friend Rachel of R&R Workshop asking me to participate in Polka Dot week, I jumped at the chance.  After all, what would Polka Dot week be without ME in it? 😉 I am absolutely thrilled to be  participating in Polka Dot week with this great group of ladies:  If you have ever visited me before, you KNOW that I {Read More}

Beautiful Savior Free Print

Beautiful Savior Free Print

Happy Good Friday Everyone. I can’t begin to tell you how I am looking forward to this weekend.  There is just something extra special about Easter when we get to sit at the feet of our Prophet and his apostles and listen to General Conference.   As I have reflected throughout this week about the Resurrection of our Savior, the words to the chorus of my favorite Primary song kept coming to my head.   Beautiful Savior, Lord of the {Read More}
