A Tent for Toddler

Yeah, I don't really know what I was thinking when I purchased this at Ikea the other day. It didn't look THIS big at the store! Why in the world does a toddler need a tent anyways??? Our living room has been officially taken over....

A Semi-Casual Father's Day

I couldn't resist not making this for father's day! Thomas loved it! In a time of recession, this does fit the bill. It only cost me about $3.50 and an hour of labor. Thanks for being a great daddy to the Ceej-ling! Love you!

This B.o.b. is fast!

This is Ceej's new ride. It's flippin' awesome!

I love watching my niece do her everyday things. She's so expressive and simple-minded. Everything she does is full of excitement, wonder, and glee.

New chicken, new plants, and a new purse for me

This is what's been goin' down in my town...

If you know me, I heart Mojitos. Its pretty much the only drink I can make at home mainly because I have this huge abundance of mint in my backyard. The other day I had an epiphany. If I love mojitos so much, why don't I just make chicken with the same ingredients!!! It worked! So so good that even the Ceej and my neice gobbled it up!

After thinking long and hard, I decided that growing my own vegetables isn't most economical thing to do. You don't save a whole lot of money growing your own because you spend so much time taking care of it. Besides, the local farmers depend on us to survive! Plus I really don't have the land to raise a variety of vegetables. But somehow I got talked into it (by my own mother and father in law). Let's see how it grows. Give me a few weeks and I'll give you an update. Got tomatoes (2 types) and green beans coming...crossing my fingers that they don't die too early before I get a little crop.

Last by not least, I finally got around to sewing something for myself. I had about a year of sewing a lot of gifts and things related to cloth diapering. I deserve it! Especially since this fabric only cost me less than $2 and less than 2 hours of labor.
