im not giving up.

18 Oct


Okay so it’s not perfect, the F was actually supposed to fit inside the picture frame and I didn’t want to take the time to return it to get another one so I did the best I could with it. Overall I am happy. It cost me under 10 bucks all together! The frame, leaves and pumpkin are all from the dollar tree, The F and the ribbon are from Hobby Lobby, that was probably the most expensive part. Super duper easy!! I don’t even think I need to write out the instructions because it is pretty self explanatory from the picture.

On another note, my sewing machine is still giving me fits! I changed out the color of thread and I couldn’t figure it out, so I brought out the instruction manual (I should have done that from the very beginning) I got it all put together and it worked for about 6 inches then got all messy on the bottom again. BOO!. I’m not giving up.

Keep on keepin on,



My little Picasso’s!

18 Oct

It’s the beginning of holiday season, best time of the year!

Avery is always super excited to kick it off with pumpkin painting, and she was even more excited that she now has Kenzie to do it with her! I told her that I didn’t think Kenzie would be very into it, but surprisingly she was and yelled at me every single time I took the paint brush away from her (because she was trying to eat it). I started her pumpkin out for her by painting a K on it for Kenzie, it only lasted about 2 seconds because she loved it so much she had to give it a big hug as soon as she saw it, getting blue paint all over her. You did not paint the pumpkin correctly if you do not have paint on you from head to toe by the time you are finished, at least that is what my girls seem to think and I don’t mind it at all. Here are some pictures of their little Picasso pumpkins!

What better way to end a night of pumpkin painting then to have some enchilada soup? (even if it is 75 degrees outside). It was pretty good! Here is the recipe if you don’t already have one you like… we used chicken instead of ground beef.


Until next time!
