Hi, I'm hoping that my blog and my experiences will help to encourage you. Our journey through life can be unpredictable at times but KNOW that if you are a believer in Christ, HE will always have your best interest at heart! (Even when things don't make sense!) Toodles

Rhubarb

Standard

 

It’s back!!!  One of my girlfriends (Sue) brought me some of her rhubarb plants last summer and I’m soooo happy they came back! I was so shocked about how fast they grow!  I took this pic on April 1st.

I took this pic 9 days later!!  I swear if I stood there I’d be able to see them grow! Crazy!

 

High School Bestie!

Standard

I am sooo blessed in my life to have several besties!!  This lady I’ve know since High School, we were actually roommates twice in our young lives.  Terri & her family live in Idaho and she was on her way to Napa, California (where we’re both from) and she had a “lay over” at DIA!!!  I happened to take Friday off, forgetting that’s when she was coming through!  So excited to see this sweet and very familiar face, even if it was a short visit!!  Love you Terri!!

Zoo Day!

Standard

A great day was had by all!  A little cold in the morning but really warmed up later in the afternoon.

Ellie’s first trip to the Zoo!

Family! That look on Ellie’s face . . . lol . . . !!

Wooden tokens for the carousel.

Not impressed, lol.  We were more excited than she was.

This girl . . . she’s getting too big!! Sitting up so straight – she was actually waving to all her fans. LOL

Bunny Trail Mix

Standard

Belley and I had a few days together last week while mom and dad had a little get-away.  We were going to meet Amie, Ellie and some friends at the zoo so we made up some trail mix for a snack.  Annie’s Snicker Doodle Bunnies (delicious & from Target), mini-marshmallows, raisins, Easter colored M&M’s and some Pink Princess Goldfish.

Very Yummy!

And if you’re making Bunnie Trailmix for your friends, you must have cute Bunny Snack Bags!

DIY – Barn Door – Floor Guide

Standard

The door guide that came with my kit required me to router out a channel in the bottom of the door. I decided this way would be an easier solution for me.

I got these at Home Depot, C-Guide?  The half moon is plastic and has an adhesive back that you attach to the floor guide so it doesn’t scratch your door.  The package came with a set of 2 and the screws.

Pre-drilled the holes.

Done! The door glides perfectly and keeps the door aligned.

I can’t even tell you how happy I am that this is done!  Found the art at Michael’s and I’ve had the arrow for quite awhile – I bought the arrow at Hobby Lobby.
