Easter egg hunt

Today we went to our town Easter egg hunt. We usually get there late, but this year we were early. The minute we got out of the car it started flurrying. Ugh. She got lots of eggs this year.

With the bunny

She won't have her face painted, but will have her hand painted. That frosting was pink lemonade, I didn't even know that had that.

The Easter egg tree that she made.

Nail files. Week # 13

I put this nailpolish on last night (I'm not very good at painting my nails or taking pics of them). I love this color. It's new & by Revlon, Scandalous. It's kind of a blackish with big chunks of purple glitter.

Scrapbook pages

When I went away a few weeks ago for the Girl's scrapbooking weekend, I got 26 pages completed. I don't think I will ever get that many pages done again all at once. These are the pages that I did.

1 Busy Mama

We were so busy yesterday that I wasn't on the computer much & didn't post a blog. I really hate not being able to post a blog. But it was 10:30 when everything got done last night (made hubs lunch, got Tara to bed etc..) & I decided that I needed sleep more. I have some fun reviews/giveaways coming up in April. I'm really excited about that. I also have a fun post that I might start doing soon. Not sure which day of the week I will do it. It's in the works right now.

Need to start eating healthy

I've been having a hard time eating healthy & not eating sweets & bread lately. This weekend when I went away I ate so many bad things. Breads, dips, cupcakes, brownies, m&m's. I was always so good at having control of what I ate & saying "no". So I'm hoping over the next few months to eat more fruits, make more smoothies & drink more water. It will be hard, but I know I can do it.

The cabin

This is the cabin that we stayed at this weekend.

Looking out from the deck.

There was a really cool spiral staircase. I should post a better pic of it.

The kitchen was awesome.

This was the view from my room. That's the lake on the left side.

Such great memories. I got 24 scrapbook pages done too. I don't think I'll ever be able to do that in a weekend again.

Home from the Girl's weekend

We got home today from our weekend away. I had so much fun & was kind of sad to come home. We're hoping to make this a yearly trip. I will post more pics on here once I get everything uploaded.

Me, Donna, Terri, Paige, Lea & Stephanie.

Girl's weekend away & St Patty's day

I'm finally getting out for a Girl's weekend away. My 1st 1 in almost 9 years. My friend has a cabin 45 minutes away & we are going to scrapbook. We're all bringing food (I'm bringing muffins & banana bread). 1 of my friends sells Tastefully simple & she's making that stuff & bringing Skinny Girl margaritas. Another 1 is bringing chocolate martini mix. We are going to be eating crappy & drinking too much. It will be fun.

We're going out for St Patty's day to a bar/restaurant & out for breakfast too.

Happy St. Patrick's Day.

Music on your blog

I went on a blog a little while ago & my daughter said "What is that music"? I said "this girl has music on her blog". She said "She listens to that"? It was some type of rap music. Then she asked why I don't have music on my blog & that I should add some rock n' roll or Shinedown. I told her that I don't want to make other people listen to "my" music if they might not like it. That's how I feel about it. Not sure what other people think. I was on another blog a little while ago & they also had some horrible music. I was thinking that I really like this person's blog, but they have horrible taste in music. I'll still check out these people's blogs, but just turn my volume off.
