Bathroom update








I really do love this color and i wish i had actually finished the room by now and could show better photos...but this is all I have. I hope it helps a little at least!




I had someone ask about photos of my bathroom that I repainted in January. I used Sherwin Williams Tidewater. I have STILL not finished this room, so i haven't posted photos, but here are a few shots so you can get a bit of the idea.

tablescapes take 2







Here are some images from one of my favorite tables at our Table party...I said it reminded me of Mommy Prom because we were all so excited about it and fussing over our tables and all for weeks that it was like prom. Anyway, this table was excellent! You had to get in close and pay attention to the deatils....which i totally did, but didn't get many pictures of! silly me!





Totally cute, right?

Run Baby Run!

My daughter who never wants to participate in anything .....wanted to run in the Mercedes Kids' Marathon! wow. She certainly does NOT get Her athletic ability or ambition from me!


The kids run all but the last mile during school over the course of a few months. They run the last mile on race day!


We were so proud of her! I think she ran the entire mile!!!

Love is in the air




With Valentine's Day only a few days away I had to share these! I set up some little mail boxes for each of us in the Living room and the kids have had so much fun leaving letters for all of us and checking their mail boxes to see if they have mail! We have a busy two days of celebrating ahead of us and then i am packing to go out of town with my girl friends for a long weekend! YIPPEE!

home SWEET home


Today after church, the family did a little bit of SWEET family time in the kitchen. Hub and I have been haunted by a Chocolate cake with Peanut butter filling recipe for a few weeks, and today was the day!


The cake is made with good old fashioned love and ingredients right from your pantry! No boxed cake mix required!



The filling, is super yummy too! I added a bit more peanut butter than what the recipe called for. I wanted a bit more of a peanutty taste!



No one I know has as much fun licking the spatula and beater as Lula! She gets so excited about it! I thought she might have to fight her Dad off to get it; but he played nice today!


About this point James got bored with the whole cooking thing and resorted to playing online! Oh well, at least he was still in the Kitchen!

I ask you, have you ever seen anything as sexy as a man doing the dishes? I think NOT!

After what seemed like forever, the cake was done in all its chocolate and peanut buttery goodness!


The cake and filling are fantastic! I personally am not sold on the frosting; a bit too sugary for me but Lula and Hub seemed to like it! wonder how long this will last?
