Fun stuff

I had to share a couple shops that I have found, purchase from, and love the items!

Brinda Kay Design makes cool purses and trays out of vinyl records. Pretty sweet stuff.

This vinyl record was turned into an awesome bowl/tray. It's really nicely made and super cool. I love The Cars! The tray is "just what I needed".

I also love LizMiera. She has all kinds of patches and things. I ordered some custom name patches for TJ and his band and they were so awesome! You can get whatever name or word that you want on them, and they are great quality. You can't beat the price. I'll for sure be back for more! Here are some examples from her shop:

We love Jack

Jack Black was recently the guest star on Yo Gabba Gabba. Ivy and I have been long time fans of Yo Gabba Gabba, and it's one of the shows we dvr. The Jack Black episode was AMAZING! Ivy loved it more than I did though, that's for sure. If she's having a bad day, is sad about something, or whatever......the answer to all her problems is Jack Black. I just have to say the magic words, "You wanna watch Jack Black?" and her tears magically disappear, and the world is a happy place again. I guess some rockin tunes, colorful creatures, and a funny bearded man is all it takes.

It's also awesome to be a mom and see that one of my daughter's favorite shows is starring Jack Black. I mean, come on, it's Jack Black. Tenacious D rules.


Elouise enjoys eating drumsticks more than playing drums!

We only did one typical Easter tradition this year. We colored eggs. I have 24 pastel, stickered eggs in my fridge. Ivy had so much fun coloring them! She was totally into it. Every egg had to be covered in stickers. She had about 6 eggs that had to be in the little eggs stands, and she talked to them for about 20 minutes until it was time for them to go to their home in the fridge.

Cheap Entertainment

My sweet Elouise. Give her a piece of bread, and she'll be entertained for an hour!

I still haven't gotten a new camera, and because of that, it is so hard to get a good picture of Elouise. She is constantly in motion unless she's sleepy!

Ivy is in love with cheese. There's no stopping her when cheese is around. She's all over it. I was making pizza sandwiches the other day, and she was very content with the massive bag of mozzarella!

Magnet Love

I made some new magnets. These are a couple of my favorites. There are more in my shop, and keep your eye out for more in the near future!
