35 Y/O wife to Tim and mom to Emma,Noah,Caleb, Stella and 2 babies in Heaven.Trying to walk in the path of the Lord and carrying my family with me. I love our 1902 home we purchased more 10 years ago. It is constantly evolving and goes through whatever changes my little heart desires. I love vintage treasures and I'm always on the hunt for them! My hope is that this blog will be a constant scrapbook for my family and home,a place to make new friends and just somewhere to lay out my thoughts,even if they aren't beautiful or inspiring.

Our Weekend

Despite my my nose being clogged like an old toilet life went on this weekend. Saturday I headed
out to pick up supplies to make my friends some birthday gifts.While at Hobby Lobby I also grabbed some fun red polka dot fabric to cover the lamp shades in our room. I can't wait to get started on that project.

Then I went to the Walmarts in search of tea. Remember way back when I participated in Kim's mug swap? Well my swap partner sent me a teabag that I finally got around to using just a few days ago. Good Earth Sweet & Spicy tea. It was seriously the most delicious tea I have ever drank! When it was gone I had a sad. So I was very happy find it there,super cheap too I might add. Two of my very favorite senses-taste and smell- have left me while I'm sick. Luckily this tea is crazy strong so I can taste is somewhat.

Sunday we celebrated Caleb's 5th birthday with our family at a local fun place. Nothing big,just the cousins.But he had a really fun time and loved his Batman cake! I hear it was delicious :/

Batman cake
Hey kids,I don't think this is how you play this.
Well,off to gather some of the kids toys to giveaway to make room for the new ones. It's pretty embarrassing how much crap my kids have.Especially since they don't use half of it.A few years back we adopted the '3 gifts per kids because 3 was good enough for Jesus' policy. However that doesn't seem to keep everything at bay. Especially since they all have birthdays right before Christmas. If anyone has any suggestions on organizing/storing/giving away toys and just plain STUFF I am all ears!

The cake was Awesome. I keep all of Blaze's stiff in clear totes easy to find, keeps the cats off of it and they slip right under the bed so you dont have to look at it all the time:)
