I just bought Ruthanne's Baptism dress!

Aaack, that means she's really going to turn 8 (in June) and get baptized and be all grown up and responsible! Ok, not totally. I really kind of wanted to make her dress (like my mom made mine, we donated it to the local church and it is now to raggedy to be used for Ruthanne says mom, although the church still uses it!) but between a lack of good fabric stores, my lack of experience with sewing clothes, and fear of frustration and irritation while sewing the dress, I decided it was probably worth it just to buy a dress. Plus between the fabric and pattern it would probably cost me about as much to make it myself as to buy it already made! Etsy to the rescue!

Fun Printables

I came across this blog with lots of printables.

I foresee a wall of inspiration fun things in my future (maybe, this assumes I actually do it!).

Happy Easter!


It was a great day, we went to church and had a fabulous Easter program, ate a bunch of chocolate (a splurge on Easter candy, its my favorite candy), enjoyed the Easter baskets, and even read the Easter story together as a family.

Feeling happy

for the moment at least. Why?

- The RSP is back!
- Luke doesn't have any trips planned (no constant packing/unpacking/washing/ironing like I've been doing back to back to back this past month)!
- My garden is growing!
- The weather is nice (for what a few weeks?)!
- The kids are having fun playing outside!
- Luke and I assembled a portable basketball goal by ourselves and still want to be married!
- We are taking the kids to the Atlanta temple open house next week!

Whew, you don't realize how easy life is normally until you go through an
extra crazy month! Maybe I'll share some pictures soon. I'll leave you with this one since this is what I should be getting ready to do.
On the way back from Mimi & Poppa's (a couple months ago?)

A new favorite blog

Perhaps most interesting for the LDS folks out there, but really this guy isn't preachy, its just a good nutrition blog. Maybe it will inspire you to eat a little better!
