Yarn Wrapped Spring Wreath

I finally got around to hanging up my Spring wreath (you know, now that its almost summer)! Its such a lovely pop of color against our dark purple door.

Spring has sprung!

I used  pastel yellow with a varigated green/blue/tan yarn to wrap the wreath. The little wooden flowers I got from the dollar section from Target!

I am really happy with how it turned out, and have gotten some compliments on it already :D such an awesome feeling!!
Working on some new things, trying to keep my head on straight!

Have a wonderful week everyone!!

Manic Mondays Music

Because we all managed to escape the rapture, I think this is a very appropriate song for todays Manic Mondays Music!

I've been a big Ace of Base fan since they came out in the early 90s, so I found this song ironic and fitting :D

Heres hoping you all have a wonderful week!!

Happy Birthday Edward!

A few weeks ago my little man turned 7! Its hard to believe its been that long. He has changed so much and is becoming such a wonderful young man, and I am more and more proud of him every day.

I thought I'd throw some pics from his birthday and of him through the years up to celebrate his day :D

The morning of his birthday with the little robot he and Mike put together (a kit he got for his birthday)

at his party, getting ready to cut the cake. weirdo.

On "bring your daughters and sons to work day" playing the cookie game


Mommy Snuggles. This is when I was pregnant with Zach.
I meant to post this a little earlier in the month (since his birthday was on th 5th) but things have been a bit crazy!

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!!

Manic Mondays Music- Janet Jackson

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had an awesome weekend!

Sorry I've been a bit absent in the past week. Between birthdays, celebrations, and blogger not cooperating I haven't been able to post a thing!

To make up for it, I thought I'd post one of my FAVORITE Janet Jackson songs/videos. I just love the funky style and sassy dance moves of her video for "If"...

Isnt that just fab?!

I hope you all have a wonderful week!!



Manic Mondays Music- America! F*ck yeah!

Since everyone is feeling in a patriotic spirit today due to the announcement by the white house that Osama Bin Laden is dead, I thought I'd do a more patriotic manic mondays music.

This is from a really dumb movie called "Team America" that was made entirely with puppets. If the F-word offends you, seriously, skip this weeks video...

To those I've offended, Im sorry. To those I've made laugh, you're welcome.

Seriously though, this is a historic day for America, although it doesnt really change much. Thankfully, a horrible man is dead and cant hurt any more innocent people, and we've gotten our closure from the tragedy that was 9/11, but will that stop the war in Iraq and have all of our troops come home? Probably not.

This isnt to start a political debate, just saying that everything is not all rainbows and puppies now that Bin Laden is gone.

I think they should have just sent Chuck Norris in and it would've been done in 24 hours.

Hope you have a wonderful week!!
