Tim Burton Style Alice in Wonderland & Nightmare Before Christmas Bridal Shower

Hey everyone, sorry it's been so long since my last post.  Things have been crazy busy around here, my little brother is getting married!!!  In addition I'm back in college again getting a Clear Credential (right now my credential is preliminary and expiring).  I'm so excited to show you the pictures from the bridal shower I threw for my soon to be sister in law - oh yeah I'm getting my first sister!

In preparation for our trip to New Orleans I made myself a new linen gown for my soldier's wife impression.

Santa Hat Snack Mix

Here's a fun recipe for a cute holiday snack mix, complete with Santa hats!  I gave these to all the staff I work with at my school, Ben's coworkers and our neighbors.

Feeding the Tree

Do you struggle with feeding your tree?  It has always been a struggle for me.  I would try a big water pitcher but it wouldn't fit, so then I'd use water bottles but I'd have to refill - all while climbing under the tree.  When Ben and I were at the tree lot we saw a tool for sale that would make feeding the tree a whole lot easier, and of course we agreed that we could make that!

Our Family Thanksgivings and a Special Birthday 2014

This was a very special Thanksgiving for my family this year.  My Grandfather turned 90 years old the day before, so we threw him a big party with the whole family.

Happy Thanksgiving





Hi Everyone,

It's beginning to look like fall around Southern California and I wanted to stop by and wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!  We'll be spending time with both of our families.  First stop is my side where we'll also be celebrating my grandfather's 90th birthday, wowzers 90 years is a lot of years!  He's a great man and I'm so blessed to have him in my life!  Then we'll be off to visit Ben's mom and brothers!  On Tuesday we had our annual Friendsgiving with my yarn group - we made almost the whole meal vegan!  I feel so blessed to have such awesome friends in my life.  Hope you have a great day no matter where you go, may you find love and joy in those around you!

Double Birthday at the LA Arboretum

I've mentioned this before, but in case you didn't know it Ben and I have the same birthday - just three years apart.  This year as something special we planned to visit the LA Arboretum with Ben's mom and S-Dad Brian.  The clouds threatened rain, but we're nice enough not to rain on our birthday!

My 1st Women's Retreat

I felt so blessed to be invited to attend Women's Retreat with my church this year.  I've always looked forward to the day I would be considered adult enough to get to participate.  I know my mother has had the best times going on retreat with the women from my childhood church, in fact she loves them so much that even though we've moved away she still goes on retreat every year with them!

My New Classroom Decorated for Autumn & Fall Leaf Writing Template

I mentioned earlier that I have a new job, I'm working as a Temp. Specialist in a local school.  It's a step up from being a substitute and I couldn't be more excited!  I'm treated as a real staff member and even have my own classroom!  (of course I'm still paid like a sub and am not even eligible for BITSA- a teacher induction program I need desperately!)  But onto the good stuff, my new room!

The bean sprout tubes worked wonderfully!  Every single one sprouted and looked great!

Fall Favorites Printable

After viewing all the beautiful fall subway art printables I decided my fall decorating would not be complete until I had one in our home too.  This began the quest to find the perfect one. Unfortunately it did not yet exist. Thank goodness I'm married to an awesome graphic designer, because in just a few minutes he whipped this up for me!

Organizing the Tea Cupboard

Apparently I have a lot of tea, and my boxes were getting out of control.  Now I know it's hidden behind closed cupboard doors, but opening up a chaotic cupboard can have an affect on your mood.  I'd go in looking for something and it would be frustrating to have to dig to find it.  Now I don't have to do that!

Tea-riffic Cups Gift

Recently I was teaching a long-term substitute assignment in preschool with some awesome ladies. When my time was up I wanted to give them each a gift to let the know how I felt, so I came up with these fun cups for them.
