Summer Fun...

Ok, I REALLY want to get some more followers, so I'm going to try posting about 3 times a week!

Here are a few shots of our first boating trip of the summer. We went over to Clinton Lake on Sunday and even though the weather didn't entirely cooperate, we did get [some] sun around 4:30pm! It was Anthony's first time on a boat and he did swimmingly (pun intended)!! Here are a few pictures:My little Cap'n

Most definitely NOT the most flattering picture of me, but oh well!

Our Memorial Day weekend was great, we got some things done around the house and spent some time with great family and friends...what more can a gal ask for?!

I'm currently working on getting daycare "stuff" organized, and then I'll have some DIY pictures to post of the hubs staining the deck, some craft stuff of mine, etc. I need to start getting my blog OUT THERE for peeps to see! :)

Well, for the few of you that follow me, THANK YOU! And for those of you not [yet] following me.... you don't know what you're missing!

Until next time,
Live, Love and LAUGH!

Pantry Orginization

During naptime on Tuesday I was able to get our pantry cleaned out and inventoried. I CANNOT believe how much stuff I had to throw away (expired...the oldest thing expired in 2007!!!) and I also made a box to donate to the local food pantry. I think sometimes I get just a little too experimental when I'm grocery shopping. I think I'm going to try something new, but then I get home and it just really sounds like a bad idea =/

So, here's the BEFORE:Its not HORRIBLE, but I had no clue what all was in there! Our pantry is basically just a large cabinet, so many things get lost in the back :(
p.s. I remembered to take this picture only after I had already cleaned out the top shelf:

and the AFTER:

Sadly, now it just looks so empty!

Things on Thursday- 5/26/11

I'm Baaaack!

Finally after a few weeks of complete chaos around my house, I am back in order and I plan to start blogging a lot more. *I know, I know* I say that ALL the time, but this time I mean it! :)

So, my 5 Things on Thursday...

1. How cute is my little man?! He climbed into his rocking chair this morning and I gave him his blankie, his monkey and a book and he sat there, reading for a while...ofcorse I also had to turn the radio on so he could hear his tunes!

2. In the beginning of the year I joined a Flickr group and I've really been enjoying it! Even though, at times, I slack a bit (we are supposed to have our pictures posted by Sunday night, and some of mine may, or may not have been posted on Monday...oops!), I am really learning some new techniques, and I love it. Here's my most recent submission:

3. I am really looking forward to seeing Hangover 2 this weekend! I bust up laughing at just the commercials!

4. Last night was definitely one of the scariest storms I've ever been in. Anthony, Travis and I spent about 1/2 an hour in the laundry room, in our basement, under the stairs! I cant help but feel for the poor people in Joplin, and all over the midwest that have been struck by tornadoes over the past week! I was scared, and there was barely any damage reported in our area!

5. And last, but not least, word to the wise: never take your eyes off your child...especially when he can climb up to your computer desk and find a permanent marker:

I hope you all are safe, warm and dry!

Until Next time...

Live, Love and Laugh!
