I snapped this picture of little miss "on the move"...which is no small feat these days. Two things: Ella has super kissable cheeks, and curls for DAYS. ;)

Happy Friday!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! I'm throwing it way back our trip to Ireland (several years ago)! We went for our 3rd anniversary. It was one of the best trips of my life and I'm super thankful for my Irish heritage. I felt like fit right in...the pale skin, blue eyes, and unruly hair, well...yeah, that's me alright. Ha! ;) You can see more images from our trip here, if you happen to enjoy that sort of thing. TGIF!

Readers Are Leaders

So, what do toddlers do when momma is working on the computer? They check out books at our own personal schoolroom library.

I asked her if I could take her picture...and this was her pose of choice. HAHAHA. My kids don't have a single drop of personality. At all.

Her shirt says, "Super Independent". It was a gift from her grandma. And it's very true. She's our very own wildfire, and we love her so much.

Happy Homemaker Monday Vol. 28

The above was the centerpiece I had set up for a friend's baby shower. Her favorite color is purple, so when I saw the tiny lavender pieces, I had to buy them.

The weather...
It's cold, cloudy, and a bit rainy.

Right now I am...

Finishing up breakfast. I had an iced peppermint latte, and a mini egg omelet for breakfast.

About the books and toys I scored for the girls while thrifting last week. I plan to clean them up and set them out for the girls later on today.

On my TV...
Last night, after the kids were in bed, we watched the movie "Midnight in Paris". I'd forgotten how fun the movie was. It reminded me of our honeymoon(well the scenery did...not the storyline, lol)!
