Class of 2025

I made it through the twins preschool graduation.
They technically won't be graduating till next year, but I still teared up a little bit.

Miss Emily put on a very cute program. She is the best and my girls LOVE her!
Bri was able to be there and Papa and Grammy Peck came to watch, it made it special for the girls.

Aniston's cheeser smile and Kens not paying attention. LOL

My girls best friend in their class, Roxy!

 The Class of 2025

We live in an apartment so there isn't very much storage space and we are not allowed to paint the walls, so it has been a challenge to find a place for everything and at the same time have it look cute and put together.

We have had this board lying around for awhile and I thought I could make it into a coat hanger.
(I was so tired of having the floors of our closets be the the catch all for all the bag packs and jackets)

This is what I came up with.

I don't own a cricket
so I hand painted the bird and rolled some flowers to put on it, then distressed it a little bit.  
Super easy and I am happy with how it turned out.

Mothers Day

I was looking for some words to express how incredibly grateful I am for the mothers in my life.
When I came upon this video. It touched my heart and I want to share it with all of you wonderful mothers. 
My gift to all of you amazing moms on your Mothers Day!

Dear 16 year old me

Dear 16 year old me

Talk to more people in school,
You really don't have to buy all your clothes at American Eagle,
Spend more time with your little sisters,
Don't paint your room traffic lane yellow,
You really should learn to sew better,
Help your mom more around the house,
Don't take that job at the tanning salon,
You will take a trip to yellowstone, take some bug spray and sunscreen and maybe some more low fat milk
Stop worrying about being the popular kid and spend more time with your real friends,
Pay more attention to that kid your friend is dating, you will end up marrying him
Have some extra curricular activities,
You really should enjoy going to church, you will learn alot!!
Save your money.
Watch that spot on your ankle more closely, it will turn out to be melanoma
you'll be diagnosed when you are 26
and you'll be so glad you caught it early enough.
Check yourself!!!

I wish I had seen this when I was 16.

I found this at one of my friends blog and I wanted to share with all of you.

 I really love this and I think I will have to print it out and hang it somewhere, I need to be reminded daily of the small things we all can do to become better and maybe to change the world, especially in the times we live in.
Hope you are all having a great week!

Mini trifle

I made this the other day and IT IS SO GOOD!
It is sort of like a mini trifle
I layered buttery vanilla loaf cake (that I found at walmart),
lemon curd (I found the recipe for it here)
strawberries and whipping cream.

Just wanted to share it with you.
