OK, so this is getting personal but I am pretty much an open book so here you go… I was not loving my doctor at Kaiser so I decided to shop for a new one (one through Kaiser that is). I wrote down a list of questions and I figured I would interview this new doctor and see if it he is a good fit for me. I have all kinds of weird medical issuesRead More
Every year about this time we take a trip to the pumpkin patch. It is weird to think we live in Southern California and we have this cute country town pumpkin patch (it makes me feel like I am in Texas or something). Now, this is no ordinary pumpkin patch. It is like the Disneyland of pumpkin patches. Oma’s is a working dairy farm and they have all kinds of fun things for the kidsRead More

Wh0 w0uld have thought a life size Justin Bieber cut out could be so creepy (and fun)! The kids and I stopped at a garage sale on Saturday morning because Delaney spotted a life size Justin Bieber cut out. It was $3 so I said what the heck and we brought him home. Let me tell you, hours of fun! Shawna, Josh and the boys (Brad’s sister and family) were over on Saturday night andRead More

When I haven’t thought about dinner and I need to throw something together quick, this is what I do. It is our favorite and I make it once a week. The kids love it and I use dark meat thighs (the kids call this “slippery chicken”) but you can also use chicken breasts. When I took the picture Brad looked at me and said, “and you think that looks good? I mean, I love itRead More
A shower for baby Lucas… So, I thought all my friends were done having babies but apparently this is still happening! I just found out a few more of my friends are preggers so there might be some more shower fun coming soon. Anyway, when we found out Marci was having a baby boy, her sister Michelle and I decided to bring all our new ideas to fruition. Now, this happened a few months ago,Read More

I have been making these covers for the past 2 years. I think I have sold about 300 of them on Ebay. They are not hard to make. I use chip board glued to pellon and then cover them with fabric. I was making them in advance, but I have so many styles now that I make them when they are ordered. Sometimes I am up all night making these things. I have had peopleRead More

On the days that Teagan has school Delaney and I have “girl day”. We get to do girly things without worrying about the boys. She really likes to have her face painted on girl day, so today’s request was Merida and her bear brothers from the movie ‘Brave’.     I like to use Mehron face painting colors because they go on smooth and they blend easily. I use a small spray bottle to wetRead More
