Happy Saturday!

Yesterday I had a migraine but I was able to make a few more things for Bailey's Wizard of Oz themed birthday party.
This is the basket where the lollipop favors will be showcased. I think its really cute

Here are the centerpieces I made as well. Nothing to fancy but Bailey requested that her name be written "fancy", so this was fancy and she was still able to read it. 

And the best part of the whole crafting process from yesterday was while I was sitting at the table Eli was in the back yard playing with his water table, I looked out the window to check on him and THIS is what I see.

Yes, that is my son, peeing in the back yard. Yes, we live in Louisiana, but we do have indoor plumbing. HA HA. Brian was proud and thought it was hilarious. I did not think it was so funny. But I guess it could be worse.

Let's play I SPY {shoes & jewelry}

One of my favorite bloggers little miss momma is hosting a linky party called I SPY. She chooses a different theme each week and you take pictures of that theme and link up with other bloggers. I have been following along each week but have yet to have time to link up, but YAY for Spring Break because I have time and its one of my favorite themes {shoes & jewelry}! So if you get a chance swing by and check out all the shoes and jewelry that everyone else has...Thats my favorite part :)

I am ashamed to say that this is what my jewlery box looks like most of the time.

Here is my fav piece of jewelry {besides my wedding ring}

Brian gave me this for Mother's Day right after I had Ben Henry and I love it. Makes me think of my boys every time I hear it clink.

Meet my {child care shoes}
Thats what Brian calls them. Because they cost as much as a week of childcare. LOL
I love them and thats all that matter. They go with almost everything I wear ( lots of black & gray) and I purposely wear things so I can wear them!

What I've been working on.

My friend Jessica's daughter Bailey will be celebrating her 5th birthday this Saturday. She is having a Wizard of Oz themed party. She is having the party at a gymnastics studio that doesnt allow decorations. BOO! So that leaves me out. But I was able to help Jess with these thank you tags.

She bought the stickers from an Etsy seller and I "Warm & Fuzzied" them up for her by adding the rainbow papers. I think they are pretty cute. I am also making a cute sign for her favor basket, she is giving the kids big lollipops. SO the sign is going to say " For the Lollipop Kids Love the Munchkin. I will post a pic when I am done with that. Its coming along quite cute!

Happy Wednesday!

she likes me she really likes me

So yesterday when I opened my email I had a very nice surprise. Lindsay ,from Artsy Fartsy Mama had sent me the sweetest email telling me that she had chosen “little ole me” to win an award. I was floored. I started Warm and Fuzzy on a whim, because I thought it would be fun, it help me get out all my creative ideas and ,it would be a great way to connect to a huge community of women I had found on the internet who all seemed so amazing. So for someone to find my blog and want to give me an award is just icing on the cake.
So here is my award:
So according to the award rules, here's what I have to do next:

1. Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them (which is really the polite thing to do anyway!) So, THANK YOU! Lindsay! Lindsay has an amazing blog Arty Fartsy Mama. Geaux and check out those Easter Kabobs I posted about yesterday and her easy Chevron art. She has great tutorials as well!

2. Share 7 facts about yourself.  Let’s see.
  • I am a full time pre-school special education teacher in the public school system
  • I do not like other peoples feet- I can only tolerate my husbands, and my boys. Otherwise- eeeeewwww FEET!
  • I have a pacemaker. I had it implanted when I was 21 years old, due to complications from a heart procedure b/c I had a heart arrhythmia that needed to be fixed.
  • I am a mouth biter. When I get nervous or when I start to space out, I bite the inside of my mouth. All the woman in my family do it. Its almost hereditary.
  • I love LSU. Probably more than a normal person should.
  • When I was little I wanted to be a model. I am 5’2, uhmm yeah never gonna happen.
  • Every doll I ever had as a child was named Jessica. That’s weird just sayin.’
3. Share the award with 6 newly discovered bloggers.
I chose 6 blogs from my list, some new (to me) and others that I stalk read regularly. So go check them out! They are all so talented and have such great ideas! So here goes...

Fellow Louisiana Blogger- Heidi has the cutest blog. 1st I love monkeys and she just gets me, b/c she is Louisiana too. She just reached 500 followers too geaux check her out!!
Another Louisisana blogger! I mean this link is a no-brainer she loves LSU, has a pug, and is a blogger. We could be twins. LOL
Jo-Anna is the wreath queen! If I can make ONE wreath as good as hers I will be happy J
Just found this blog myself. Natalie has tutorials and a little guy with special needs and she is his biggest advocate, so I want more people to read her blog!

And these two blogs need NO recognition from me but I couldn’t/wouldn’t have started a blog without their blogs or inspiration from both of them
Mique is an awesome momma! Who has the greatest ideas. And is always willing to share and as my momma would say, “ Doesn’t know me from Adam.” But it always willing to send me a positive uplifting email or comment and gave me my first “feature” on a blog, so I am forever greatful! PS: She has an awesome crafty marketplace in CA called QueenBeeMarket with her sister if you are in the area.

Linda has the GREATEST tutorials ever. She even sent me emails when I had my biggest craft fail ever when trying to make her oh so famous t-shirt pom-poms. Her blog is the cutest and she has a cute baby boy she post pics of too.

Please please geaux check out these lovely ladies blogs. They all ROCK in their own way and have inspired me in one way or another.

Happy Tuesday!!

Hippity Hop!

Yesterday was a great day. The boys had a blast at the Good Friday crawfish boil. We ate way to much, stayed way to late, but enjoyed ourselved oh so much! I think Ben Henry had the most fun when he swiped a cupcake off the table. I just let him go with once he had it.
Can you tell how much he enjoyed it? That's my beefcake. Ha  Ha Ha.

When we got home last night it was time to dye Easter eggs with Eli. He was very excited to get to do this with just Brian and I. Ben Henry was already in bed so it was just ELI time. Here are a few pictures from his dyeing session.

Can you see the "Magic Crayon" in his hand? He was writing his name all over the eggs. He thought it was the coolest thing.
How proud he is? My big boy!

Hoping everyone has a Blessed and Happy Easter!!

Why do shorts hate me? Where do you buy yours?

Yes, thats really the name of my post! Today Brian, the boys and I spent almost all of our afternoon looking for short for ME. I just wanted 2 pairs of shorts for the summer. Its so HOT here and I cannot wear jeans or even capris most of the time. Every single store I went into had teeny tiny shorts made for people who had not had children or who wanted to show their hoo-has- NOT ME! And the other places where I did find shorts that were acceptable were over $50 for 1 pair of shorts. I cannot justify paying that for shorts I want to wear while running errands with my boys. Brian also made the comment that if you did some people watching every woman we saw in the mall today had on either jeans, a dress or a skirt. NONE of them had on shorts unless they were athletic type shorts. I just think its crazy that I am going to have to shop online and HOPE they fit...GRRRR...ok thats my soapbox for Sunday. LOL

So anyone have a great place to buy shorts? Share your secret!!!

There are plenty of great Easter projects floating around different blogs, great giveaways, and awesome linky partys. I hope my computer gets fixed quickly I cannot download the silhoutte software onto my school computer and its driving me crazy!!

Have a good week everyone!!

Wacky Idea for a Wednesday...

Every morning on my way to work I pass this empty building that is Zoned for Commercial use. And every single morning I think, wow. I wish I could rent this place and have all my blogger friends sell me their crafty lovelies wholesale and have the best blog gone craft lovely shop ever. My mother in law has always wanted to own a gift shop and i would love to be able to sit in a store and sell lovelies to people and blog all day. I know what a life? I cant sew and am semi-crafty. I  have good ideas but they seldom come to. So everyone who is interested give me your wholesale info, let me sell sell sell, your lovelies in my shop and I'll quite my dayjob. Thanks :)
I just had the thought wanted to put it out there in the universe. LOL

What a wackadoo post for a Wednesday.
