rainbow baptism birthday

Oh!  This is a crazy-long post but it’s full of fun colorful pictures!  My daughter turned 8 in April and was baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  Now that more than a month has passed, I think it is about time I blogged about it.  I wanted a fun […]

We are the Winners!

Me and Meredith, that is! (Post edit:  I just realized the grammar police are going to lock me away for this one!  “Mean Meredith.”  No, she’s really nice, I promise.  Ok.  “Meredith and I are the winners.”  Is that better?) Meredith won my Purple Trail Giveaway that ended last night.  And Meredith is one lucky […]

Wonderful Wonderland Dinner

Alice in Wonderland Party

This is not My Insanity–but I wish it were!  Back in the middle of my April craziness, I got to sneak away for gourmet group at my friend, Jennifer’s house.  She and Alicia went all out creating this evening in Wonderland (as in Alice in Wonderland) for us.  I asked them if I could share […]

Building a Lego Birthday


I really intended to be getting my post up about Kira’s big birthday/baptism celebration last month, today, and I will this week for sure, but a new Twitter friend is asking for ideas for a Lego-themed party for her daughter.  I don’t know anyone who loves Legos more than my sister, Trina’s boys.  Remember thebionicle […]

Nesting Instincts Shower

A while back, I promised Joanna some ideas for a blue and brown nest-themed shower. Then my April happened. In the mean time, I have seen lots of great ideas, so she probably doesn’t need my help any more, but here are some ideas, anyway. I would start with my chow mein Easter Nests or […]

Won’t You Be My Neighbor–Progressive Dinner Party

Saturday evening we had a Progressive Dinner with all of our neighbors that live on our street (except for a couple that couldn’t make it).  It was a lot of fun and a great way to build better relationships with those around us, so I thought I would share.  The whole thing was the brainchild […]
