Dear fellow parents,
The parking lot at our children's school is small. I drive a bigger SUV that cannot quite make those tight turns that your small cars can. So when you park outside the school until the bell rings that means you are not only wasting time. But you are also making it difficult for others to drop off their children as well. If you are worried about the cold then please buy your kid a coat and a hat. They will not develop some sort of freakish virus from being out in the cold for five minutes. If you still feel like you NEED to protect them. Then PLEASE wait until the bell is about to ring and drop them off. Also don't drop off your kids in the middle of the driveway so you completely stop traffic. I am already not a morning person and you just sitting there makes my blood boil.

When I wake up every morning I know at least three of these things will happen with the utmost certainty.
Someone will cry... For Connor it will be at least three times.
I will change a MINIMUM of three poopy diapers...
I will make lunch and someone will not like what I cooked and refuse to eat.
If the kids have a bath I will be soaked by the end of it.
I will always have laundry to do.
At some point in the day I will want to pull my hair out.
Yes these things I am confident will happen everyday.
Here is a list of things I did not expect.
We ran out of baby wipes.
Rowan making himself puke not once BUT TWICE!
Finding random toys in a laundry hamper.
Connor screaming while giving him a bath.
It is not all bad though.
Here is a GOOD list of things that will happen during the day.
Connor will stop crying and give hugs and kisses followed with an 'I love you'
1. What is your favorite magazine?
I am a geek and love Family Circle. I don't know why, maybe because it is cheap!
2. What color are your eyes?
I am his Brown Eyed Girl
3. Do you go to the dentist on a regular 6 month schedule, or do you put it off?
I put it off... I am bad at going to the dentist.
4. Do you use anything to make your house smell good?Yes I do. I use Scentsy.
ex: candles, spray,etc...

5. Do you have any pets? I have one doggy named Zazu (like the bird from the Lion King) We didn't name him. We adopted him from a sweet family who was moving into University housing.

I have been one busy little crafter this weekend. I made a total of SEVEN projects. Which probably makes my hubby really happy since I don't have random things lying around anymore. I am not a cool kid and don't have a craft room.
Its more like a table...
In the laundry room...
Which is in the basement...
It's cold and lonely down there....
I learned how to make these ribbon flowers this weekend, however I have not been blessed with a little girl. So hey why not make a wreath instead right??? Right??? Ya I thought so too!
Ribbon (I got five different patterns and colors)
Hot glue gun... don't forget the glue!
Rhinestones or buttons
Cut all of your ribbon into about 6 inch strips. Fold ribbon in half so that the pattern is on the inside and put a strip of hot glue.
Make a total of four 'petals' Then dot hot glue onto the top of first ribbon and press another down as it making a plus sign. Make two of these.
Then glue both together and there it is! Cute little flower~
Now simply place rhinestone or button in the middle. At this point if you don't want to make it into a wreath you can glue a clip on the back and have a darling hair clip.
But I glued them all over this foam wreath and now have a very cute decoration for Spring.
I am done with Winter. I am done with snow, rain, and cold days. I am looking forward to warmer weather. So I though maybe if I made some cute decor Mother Nature would get the hint and leave us poor Utahns alone!!!
Here is a sampling of what I have going on at my house.
I got these pinwheels at Hobby Lobby and curled some paper for a grass like feel.
I got this idea from my sister. I painted the bird house and just painted a stencil on top of it.
more cute tulips!!!
See HINT HINT SPRING!!!! BLOOM!!!!
These little flowers are my favorite! I adore how they turned out and they go so nicely with the little birds I picked up from Ben Franklin.
I also have a new wreath, I have a tutorial for it. It will be on another post.
So wish with me and maybe it will actually act like Spring soon.
IN YOUR FACE WINTER!!!!

Dear my one reader! I love you, even if you don't read my posts. It at least makes me feel like someone likes me. I just had to vent a little about Easter. Now I love the whole purpose behind Easter. But I 100% DESPISE the decor. I hate the pastel eggs and little bunnies dancing around everywhere. It is just gross. So I boycott all Easter decorations, instead I am skipping to Spring. Besides I can keep the stuff up longer if I do. Please someone tell me that I am seriously not the only one in this boat.
