Recycled!

I always save the cardboard rolls from paper towels and toilet paper for the girls to make art projects. I have a ton. I came across an idea to use them for thanks to
Allison and her awesome idea to make a flower garland from the rolls. Brilliant! Her blog is packed with great crafts we can all do check it out! A Glimpse Inside

This is what I did and made it my own! We have a bay window that I like to hang decorations in for birthday parties and holidays. So this was perfect for Spring, Easter and Abby's party! Super cute!





Make one too! It was fun, easy and the kids can help too if you want!
Peace & Happiness!

Window Safety

New Pumas



I am so excited my new Pumas came last night. I got the Bio Trainer, it's like the Sketcher Shape Ups, except better looking. They were originally $89 but if you know me then you know I would never pay full price for anything other than a D&B purse but, that's another story. Anyways, the shoes were 33% off at Famous Footwear with free shipping. I also had promo code which brought my total to $55! But, because I'm cool and shop where I do Famous Footwear will send me a rebate for 13.5% of my order. So, next month I should get a check for just over $7 which brings my Final Price down to $47.00! SWEET! I wanted these badly but, couldn't justify spending extra money like that. I just feel guilty. So, I waited til I found a good deal and did a business portrait for my friend who paid me $50. I spent no new money and Mommy is Happy!

Pizza Pizza Pizza!

Pizza! Who doesn't love a good pizza and who knew it was so easy to make your own? It has been a long time since we have ordered pizza. We went from delivery to take and bakes to Boboli. From there we bought pizza dough in a can(not too bad,Philsbury is the best)and now we have been making our own. I never knew how easy and fun it was to make. It super cheap plus, it's a great way to spend some family time and get your kids cooking in the kitchen. The girls always enjoy rolling the dough and putting on the toppings. We have yet to be disappointed. I use a Betty Crocker recipe from the Big Red Cookbook, courtesy of my mother-in-law who gave this to me years ago I think to make sure I feed Lance some good cooking! Anyways, there are tons you can find on the internet. Here's a good one I found Pizza Recipe. Here's to making your own pizza! Good Luck!



Peace, Love & Happiness
