Maple Bacon.

This video totally reminds me of our Piper Dog... 
If Piper Dog could talk I'm sure she'd be lamenting the same as this pup.
 That girl loves food in every shape & form!



Did you notice that the above mirror is crafted of spoons!? What!?
All I can say is, heck yes I will, no wait, I must attempt to make this!

Spotted on the lovely Sherry of YHL's Pinterest.

 By the way... are you pinning yet? 
If you'd like an invite, let me know!

Happy Mother's Day Weekend.

{ Baby G & I sharing smiles earlier this week. }

Can you believe it? I am a mom! Me, a momma?! Jeepers!

The Husband & I were discussing yesterday on our way to Baby G's 2 month doctor 
appointment how things are, now here in 2011. After a while, we dialed in on the subject
 "if you had told me ten years ago I'd be... " & filled in the blank with various things. 

It got me to thinking. If you had told me ten years ago, actually even less, that I'd be a Momma here, now at 26 in 2011, I wouldn't have believed you. You see I never really wanted children. Scratch that. Let me rephrase. I only EVER wanted children under one condition- that they were with The Husband. Yep, he was & is the only man I've ever even entertained the idea of children with. 

So as you can imagine, I'm feeling pretty darn blessed that here
 I am- married to the love of my life & enjoying our daughter with him. Wow. 

Even better is how much she looks like him. Sure she has a few of my traits - my nose, my eyes (kinda)... but for the most part she is Daddy's girl & I love that. I love that when I look at her I not only see him but I also catch a glimpse at the perfect combination of us wrapped up into one little bundle of sheer joy.  I love her smiles, her giggles, her chubby cheeks & even her frowns & cries of frustration. She is awesome & I thank God every day that I get to be a participant in this grand plan of His 
& that I get to be a momma. All of it truly is so beyond me & my plans & that is pretty cool.

So whatever it is you are up to this weekend, I hope you enjoy it . 
But most of all, I hope you take a moment to reflect & to thank God 
(& your Mom) for bringing you into the world & giving you life.

Chubby Cheeks & Rainbow Socks.

Baby Girl is 2 months old today. Wow. Time flies...

I must say, it is the little things that make me ridiculously happy when 
it comes to her & I definitely fall in love with her more & more everyday.

Oh those chubby cheeks & bubble she blows in her sleep get me every time!

Cinco De Mayo.

Happy Cinco De Mayo!
{ Via }

Boy, oh boy, I'd love to be having a lil' Cinco De Mayo fiesta with you, today! 
If I could have you over, you can bet we'd be having our fill of margaritas
burritos, taquitos, beans, rice, salsa, guacamole oh & churros
Yum. Yum. Yum!

The Husband doesn't really like Mexican so I don't even know if I'll 
be getting any Mexican food to celebrate today. Bummers. 
Guess I'll have to live vicariously through internet recipes
 until I can my hands on some real food.

How about you? Any plans for Cinco De Mayo?

What I See.

Just saw this commercial & it brought tears to my eyes... it is just so lovely.
I don't know about you but I kinda really like it when an 
ad campaign has enough power to move me.

"I never saw the things my child couldn't do. I only imagined what she could."

Wow. Powerful stuff.

I'm not entirely sure exactly what it is about these oil paintings 
I like so much... But I knew when I spotted them on You Are My Fave,
I not only had to visit the artist's etsy shop but I also had to share them with you.
Super lovely aren't they?

So bright, cheery & even kinda whimsical...
 I just may have to purchase one or two or 
at least add some to my list of things I'd like!

For more art from Yangyang Pan be sure to visit her shop
