Brown Eyed Girl

I'm a brown eyed girl. Yup! Kell has blue eyes. So we were always curious to see what color eyes our kids would have. I'd say it turned out to be pretty cool!

Ryleigh ~ hers will be Brown.

Caitlyn ~ Green

Brogan ~ Blue

Sorry I can't seem to find any close up pictures of the kids eyes. I'll take some later and update the post.

But seriously how cool is it that all 3 of my kids have different color eyes!

What color are yours? Your kids?

Leap Year

Yesterday I went to the movies with a new friend. We saw Leap Year with Amy Adams. Love her! I've loved her since the movie Wedding Date. She's so fun and adorable! Anyway back to Leap Year. It was a fantastic movie. I am such a sucker for romantic comedies so this movie was right up my alley. Not only was the movie great but her wardrobe in the movie makes me want to do some serious shopping.

The scenery in the movie also rocked! Thanks to the gorgeous cliffs of Ireland throughout the movie, the hubby and I are looking into a vacation to Ireland. We think it's time to venture to his homeland. It's just difficult trying to figure out a time to go. We move in June, location unknown still, he still has training to do, and we have know idea when his next deployment will be. So right now all we can do is save up money and look for the right opportunity to leap over the pond.

30 day shred

Most of us made "get healthy and exercise more" one of our goals for the year. If you are looking for something to kick start a new you, then head over to Kara's blog and join in on an awesome challenge! I personally am so excited to be doing this with a great group of girls supporting each other. Heck I'm so excited I even talked my husband into doing it with me! So are you in??

My 10 in 10

Here I am jumping on the bandwagon, even if it's a little late!

My 10 goals in 2010:

1. Grow closer to GOD.

2. Be more hands on with my kids. I know I'm pretty hands on with them already but I'd love to kick it up a notch. After all they are my ultimate priority.

3. Learn to take better quality pictures. Also learn how to use the photoshop that I got for Christmas.

4. Become more organized. I'm getting better but still have a lot to work on.

5. Bake more. I really slacked last year on cakes, baking, etc. I really need to work on this!

6. Sew more. This is another "craft" I've let slide away. I have so many projects that I pushed away in a closet last year. Not this year! I will tackle them!

7. Better time management. Limiting the amount of time spent on the computer needs to tie into this one. I need to get housework done before turning on the computer. Oy!

8. Eat healthier. For the most part we've already been eating pretty healthy. But this year we have been trying to make it even better. We are determined. Also exercise more.

9. Simplify. everything.

10. Focus more on myself. I love that my kids are my main focus in life. But I need to realize that it's ok to spend a little time and money on myself as well.

Cute as a Button

I love, love, love these cute little rings!


This morning we got a small dusting of snow. There's something so serene and quiet about snow. It makes me want to snuggle up next to a fire.

Gosh I feel old..

My oldest is 7 today. 7! I never feel older on MY birthday. It's my children's birthdays that make me feel old. Sorry to use the typical annoying cliche` but "Where did the time go?!?".

Happy Birthday Brogan!

antique beauty

I've been to my fair share of antique stores in my life. But up until recently I never appreciated it. One small little purchase and now I'm hooked! Would you like to see my small purchase?

Here she is!
I instantly fell in love with her and had to have her for my girls' room. It definitely needs some work though. Can't wait to refinish it!

Now can you see why I have a new love for antiquing?

dreaming of a craft room

One of my must haves for this year is a craft room. When we move this summer I plan on getting a house big enough for one. Finally! I would love to do the room similar to this one. Drool!
