...and the word on my computer status? Not even looked at yet. But in other news, our home computer has been infected with a virus and is on lock-down. So I haven't had a computer all week! Thank goodness I can check email on my phone.
Today my Logan turns double digits so we will be spending the whole day tomorrow celebrating his 10th birthday. I hope I'll be able to share some pictures next week.
What else? We had a small bout of a throwing up/going out bug that went through the house. Needless to say, I've done a lot of laundry this week.
Oh, and to make everything even more exciting, I decided that the mosaic backsplash that I've been working on for 3 weeks for our kitchen isn't going to work. I just don't like it. Since it will be permanently attached to my kitchen walls, it's pretty important that I love it. I may spend a few hours tonite seeing if I can get some of the stained glass to pop off so I can re-use it.
Other than that, everything is great:) I am quickly borrowing my husband's work computer but I must go now. I hope everyone has a blessed weekend and I hope I can read some of your blogs soon!:)

So I'm blogging from the home computer to let y'all know the winner of the hope plaque:

Thanks to everyone who played the Favorites Party. Feel free to still join along. I really enjoyed coming to visit everyone.
I hope I'll be back soon! I hope everyone had a blessed weekend.

It's time for a little sharing...I can't wait to hear about some of your favorite stuff. I'm especially hoping some of y'all will share some of your favorite books, because I am in desperate want of a good read right now.
Well, here's my current faves right now:
I love it all. Her etsy shop rocks.
My Favorite Lunch:
I lay all this out on the counter every afternoon and have some sort of combination of it all.
100 % whole wheat pita, hummus, taboule salad, chickpea salad, pesto, and kalamta olives. My very favorite...the crumbled goat cheese. I could put it on top of anything! It's how I eat a lot of the veggies that I don't love.
My favorite workout- Zumba:
Her BFF and her have spent countless hours the last few months playing pretend princess and fairy.

There are three of them. My almost 18 year old customer asked for purple, yellow, and pinks...

Have you ever considered that most of what we put in our bodies isn't really food?
The preservatives, the food colorings, the additives, the sugar and high fructose corn syrup...the food that we all feed to our kids and ourselves.
It's no wonder that most of us suffer from daily ailments: allergies, headaches, bad periods, depression and anxiety, stomach aches. We aren't eating REAL FOOD!
- sugar snap peas
- 3 types of tomatoes
- a papaya tree
A couple of other things we've done...replaced our milk with organic, bought the kids some all natural cereals (try the fruit-o's, they are good!), and introduced two more servings of vegetables a day.
Also, check out this book too. It'll get you thinking...I promise.
I'll be back soon with some art and sewing to show you.
I've been busy and I can't wait to share!:)

She is a constant joy and source of laughter in this house.
There are days that I have to pinch myself because I feel so blessed to be her Mama.
My heart is tender today with the thought of how quickly she is growing...:)
We are off to celebrate with Minnie Mouse cupcakes and pizza.
Happy Birthday sweet Ava~ we love you so much!

My kids have been on Spring Break this week, and while we had a very good time, my husband informed me that I have the day off today!
Which means I can catch up on a couple of projects and get ready for Sissy's birthday without being responsible for feeding, entertaining, and changing diapers.
Here is a collage of inspiration for the week...

On another note, I make steamed broccoli about once a week, and was getting rather tired of it. I tried this cold broccoli salad for Easter and I highly recommend it. My kids were munching on it like little rabbits:)
- Large head of broccoli
- 10 slices of bacon, cooked crisp
- 5 green onions
- 1/2 cup of raisins
- 1 cup mayo
- 2 tsp. vinegar
- 1/4 cup sugar

I went to Home Depot and bought the two pieces of wood and painted them white. My husband screwed them into the wall for me and I hot glued the black clips from Target's dollar section on there so they could have a rotating art gallery.
I spent less than $18 on everything and used what I had. I'm pleased with the area but I'm really happy to see how excited my kids have been using it. The neighborhood kids have been enjoying it too!:)

I thought I would show you some of the corners I've been working on...Here's the first one.
My budget for this small project was...$0! I had all the frames stored and a lot of them were different colors. I spray painted them all black so they would all be unified.
