It’s been a while since I’ve really sat down and painted my mind on the screen so I thought I’d post a lil bloggy blog today!
I’m a very “in my head” type person. I’m a deep thinker, always have been. I think about anything and everything and why and how things became the way they are and what they’ll be in the future and what they would be under different circumstances. I think about good, happy, amazing, warm, and fuzzy things and also horrible, sad, dark, heart shattering, bad things and how grateful I am for everything life has given me. I think about the things I’ve seen in my life and I think about the things I want to shield my son eyes and heart from. I think about the life I used to have and the life I have now and how different they are. I think of old hopes and dreams I once had and how naive I was regarding the things that I always thought I wanted. I think about what’s important, what is REALLY, TRULY important. I think of all the things I’d go back and change if I could, and then I think of the lessons I’ve learned due to those mistakes.
Life’s so funny.
Some days I feel like I just want to crawl under the covers and sleep for a thousand years and never get woken up and other days I beg and plead with the universe for extra time. Contrast. Life juxtaposed. I suppose you need it right? It’s like the saying goes, the sweet just ain’t as sweet without the sour.

Ok, so here’s the sneak peek! Today Bug and I worked on this awesome little pirate ship! Arrr! I usually make my own crafts from scratch but Meijer’s craft aisle has tons of cool project sets you can buy that include everything you need to complete the project, plus you may even get lucky like me and catch a sale! Score!
Bug saw this little pirate ship set and he was dying to make it so I wanted to show you guys how great it turned out!
Isn’t that adorable? It was super easy to paint and probably took about 45 minutes to complete. It was a great family project for a lazy Sunday!

I know it’s hard to believe it but springtime and Prom Season are both approaching quickly and I’m sure you young ladies and mommas all know how a typical dress shopping trip goes. If ya wait until the very last minute-
1. You’re gonna end up going home empty handed
2. You’re going to end up with a dress that is way too big or way too small.
3. You’re going to show up in the same dress as another girl..the horror!!
Or even worse..
4. You’re going to end up with a hideously ugly dress!
You know me, I’m a girl’s girl through and through so I can’t let ya’ll go out like that! I did some of the leg work for you all and found some amazing, trendy, unique dresses from JenJenHouse that I know you guys are going to love!!
This is one of the looks that I dub, “Fairy Tale Chic”. I am absolutely obsessed with the flow-y, graceful, blush pink skirt and the color is just one hundred percent perfection! I think this look would be fabulous on a girl with fair or light skin like the model pictured. Gorgeousness!!
The beautiful sweetheart neckline of this gown and the satin-y finish of the elegant fabric made it easy to choose my second “Fairy Tale Chic” dress choice. The ruffle beading and the taffeta/tulle combination make this dress perfect for any prom princess!
This flow-y, one shoulder, chiffon, grecian number screams elegance. The gorgeous beaded belt, the ruffling, and the playful slit in the leg draw your attention to all the right places. This is one of those awesome universal dresses that would be flattering on any figure and skin tone.
My second Greek inspired choice is this luxurious, gorgeous, chiffon gown. With the sweetheart neck line and sweep train on this dress you could wear it for several different occasions. I adore the beautifully subtle beading on the waist!
Ladies, have a great time at the prom!! Mommas, relax! We’ve gotta let them spread their wings every once and awhile ;)

I Looooooove St. Patrick’s day!! Maybe it’s because I’m Irish or maybe it’s just because I love the color green! Either way, I love to decorate for the holidays so I have been on the lookout for some cute, simple crafts to do. I love these ideas so I wanted to share!
Hope you enjoy your holiday!
P.S. My smart phone auto corrects to “St. Party’s Day” whenever I type “St. Patty’s Day”. Maybe these smart phones are smarter than we thought! ;)
I try to eat pretty healthy but every once in awhile ya gotta have a cheat day right? Well this is my absolute favorite Mac and Cheese recipe EVER so I wanted to share!! It’s super easy and super cheesy! Enjoy!
2 Cups uncooked Elbow Macaroni
2 strips of Bacon
3 tablespoons of Butter
2 1/2 cups of Shredded Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup Sour Cream
1 can condensed Cheddar cheese soup
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Pepper
1 cup Milk
First, boil the noodles until they’re half way cooked. Drain them and set them aside. In another pan mix your butter and your shredded cheddar until it’s melted. Next, put your noodles in your crock pot along with your melted cheddar cheese, condensed cheese soup, sour cream, milk, salt, and pepper. Cook on low for two hours or on high for one hour, depending on how big of a hurry you are in. Be sure to stir every 1/2 hour to spread the cheese evenly. About 15 minutes before the mac and cheese is done I start cooking my bacon. When it’s fully cooked and slightly crispy, crumble and sprinkle on top.
*This is a spin-off of my favorite Paula Dean Mac & Cheese recipe.
