I am still around, it seems
like life is going
by so fast! My hunny is still
working in Wyoming in the oil
industry and my sweet Beka
will be a junior this fall.
I am also trying to fit in a
sweet 16 birthday party for her.
I am always on instagram

I am there a lot, it seems
like it's so much easier
to snap a photo and write
a caption than
to sit and write a blog post.
I have been busy with the my

so happy with that!

Remember I told
you about participating
is such a fun idea. April's
theme was "Green".
As in reuse and recycle.
At first I had a hard time
thinking of things to put in my
package, but Beka was an
awesome help, and we had
so much fun putting the package together.
had me. :)
It was so nice meeting
Lindsey, she is such a sweet
girl and she is getting
ready to be married
in just a few days!
I sure hope that this
Iowa weather is decent for
her special day!
When her package came in the mail
I was so excited, well who doesn't
like to get packages. :)
she included a cute postcard explaining everything
that was in the package.
There was some yummy granola, which Beka
and I LOVE, some potato flavoring(can't wait to try)
Kleenex with a pack cover(perfect for my allergies which
are starting), a dispense bag for my plastic
grocery sacks (so cute with all the "go Green logos"),
and a very nice smelling candle(love them too!).
This was a very fun experience and it was nice
meeting 2 new girlies.
Have a great weekend.

wiww and a new pillow~
I don't know about you, but I am
ready for some warm weather.
Here in the Midwest, we are
dealing with it all; snow,
sleet, rain, cold, and some sun.
We are forecasted to have
some snow tomorrow.
Did Mother Nature not get the memo...
Um...Hello...it's the middle
I have started to go out
with some girls on one
Friday night a month, we call
it "Mom's night out". I know
Anyway...we go out for dinner to
a local restaurant, usually trying
not to go to the same one, but here,
in our little ol' town, we don't have
a lot of choices, especially if we include McDonalds! LOL
Which we don't of course. :)
I haven't been able to go for a while, but
I did go this last time.
I got home and told Beka to pick me
Sparkle stripe tank: Old Navy
Purple cardi: Gap Outlet
Skinnys: American Eagle
Black Flats: Local boutique

outfit, don't you?
Also, I wanted to show you

with this on it. I loved it so much
I made another for the

what do your kids do on spring break~
We had spring break over
the Easter weekend.
I know most people take
spring break off and head
to warmer places to
enjoy the warmth of the
sunshine and spend
time together. To
finally enjoy some nice weather
after putting up
with the cold and the snow.
This is what my kid does on
spring break with her bestie!
All I can say...
I am glad I wasn't home at the time
and all the mess was cleaned up when
I got home. :) But they had
the cara box swap
It should be a lot of fun. I will let you
know how it goes. :)

to get some shots. :)

Leggings: Gap Outlet
OK....yes, my mirror is filthy, Oh, my goodness it is! :)
I have to tell you, with this outfit, I
completely was stepping out of my comfort zone
of jeans and tees!
I have been wanting to wear leggings for a long time,
and I am very self conscious of myself in
anything clinging to my body like leggings!
But, I have always adored
Jodi over at Jod a La Mode,
she is always dressed so cute, and her name is awesome!
She wears leggings and looks
super cute, she's going
to be so proud of me! :)
See how yucky spring in Iowa looks!
Navy Tank: Old Navy
Striped Tee: Gap Outlet....super soft! LOVE

Today, I am linking up
for insta friday!
If you are on instagram, look
I am so glad it's friday, how about you? I worship my weekends, it seems more
now than ever. It seems sometimes time stands still
for so long and the weeks drag on forever.
Maybe because I look forward to my Hunny
coming home so much! But then when the weekend
comes, I want time to stand still, because I enjoy
my time at home so much!
Several new pillows in the
I love this one, I think it's so cute!
Beka is taking driver's ed class this spring,
so we have been practicing! It's so hard for me
to be on the passenger side; guess that's a
control thing!;) She is doing great...practice,
I was in the kitchen the other day and i
peeked aroun the corner to check on Bailey, and this is
what I saw! :) She can watch the kitchen from
there and when I said something to her, her
tail would just go...you can tell her tail is
just a wagging! It was so funny!
home made chicken strips,
the pioneer woman.
I highly recommend
these, very easy and very good! I am always
looking for quick and easy meals...LOVE this one.
All this week, well and even a bit last week, all the
talk has been this "big" winter blizzard
headed our way....GET PREPARED!!!
So, we got prepared....several trips to the
grocery store and several trips to Walmart,
because, I am sure we will be snowed in
forever, ya know! :)
I rushed around at work and got all
of my work done that needed to get done
for the week incase I wouldn't
be able to get to work(
was keeping my fingers
crossed for a snow day or two! ...shhh)
I left work early on Thurday afternoon, it had
we snuggled in and were ready
for the storm....bring on the snow!
by evening, it was getting deeper and blowing
we did end up with a snow day today, but
it was not a record blizzard for us. I did have to break
out this bad boy for some help!
Thank goodness for this, or I would be
out scooping forever!
Have a great Friday!
