Last-Minute Easter Basket Personalization

I can remember what Easter was like growing up really well.
I remember my Dad trying to make our Easter baskets tough to find.
I remember lots of times one of us would find a basket that
didn't belong to us before we found our own!

And now I'm the one filling and hiding baskets for our boys-
and having to tell them that the basket they were so excited to have just found
is a different brother's and not theirs!
This year I thought maybe I'd try to personalize their baskets a little bit
so it was obvious at first glance who's was who's...

Green Smoothie Reality

Everybody thinks green smoothies are good, right?

"Can't even taste the greens!" or "Tastes like candy!"
are phrases I've heard describe them several times over.

I want to be on the green smoothie bandwagon!
I'm inspired by THIS site and think that green smoothies could really make sense
for weight loss, on top of nutrition alone.

And I do, I really like green smoothies these days.
But I have to say "these days" because... confession:
I've done met my personal quota for green smoothie FAILS!
No, I don't think they taste like candy.
But I have learned a few things to make them enjoyable at least!

Scavenger Hunts and Beautiful Boys

I love, love, love the glowing evening light for taking pictures! The little boys and I recently headed outside on a particularly warm evening for a little outdoor scavenger hunt and I couldn't help but keep interrupting the fun to snap photos of my beautiful boys!

Happy Right Now

Us Lately? I've gotta say, we're pretty happy right now.
Haven't been sick in awhile.
The snow is mostly melted and our yard is bare!
Cooper and Ryder are actually getting along really well these days.
Taron and Keaton are pretty close to the best teenagers ever from what we can tell.

And, yes, yes... now I knock on wood ;)

Faking Metal over Chipboard

Awhile back I drove past Porter's Craft and Frame, our great locally owned craft store,
and saw nothing but huge letters in the entryway.
I wanted to switch lanes and go in right then!
I couldn't really stop that very minute, of course, but I did go within that week
and grabbed up- what else- a 2' capital B!

Baking Soda Boredom Busters

I've decided Baking Soda and I get along really well...
If I need a good, solid boredom buster for the boys, I can count on baking soda.
Well, baking soda and vinegar, really :)

Regarding: Luck

Truth be told, we don't really acknowledge St. Patrick's Day around here too much. I guess we do acknowledge  it, but that's about all! I figure I only have a month to decorate for and enjoy Easter as it is!

In thinking about luck, I daresay I actually don't so much believe in it. I believe our Heavenly Father is too much in the details of our lives for there to be such a thing as "luck" really. Blessings and miracles, hard work and divine intervention are what luck really is. Those two cute dudes above- they are my luck. Them and the other three older versions around here :)

Simple Camera Strap Cover Tutorial

Tonight I am going somewhere fun as a blogger!
I am excited to get to know some other area bloggers better and
do some laughing with- get this- Girls!

Hopefully I can handle it ;)

Truthfully I really am not very comfortable in social situations- the times when I should be having the most fun can be the times when I feel the most out of place kinda. But not tonight, right?! No, no, no :)

I am excited to be taking fun pictures of my little blogger soiree and will surely have my camera around my neck. I got looking and... well....

The Most Positive Day in the World

A few weeks ago, I read in Family Fun magazine that March 1 was World Compliment Day.
I was intrigued! Who doesn't love a sincere compliment?
Looking into it, I discovered this initiative is less obscure than I might've thought!
