I love my hydrangeas.

They look great as cut flowers.

My first gardenia of the season.  More to open soon!

Arrgghh! Blogging

I wish I new someone who new what they were doing with this blog thing.
Is there anyone out there who wants to give me a tutorial?
I just deleted an entire post and cant get it back and dont really want to write it over.
Lets just hit the highlights since my last posts.

I had a great birthday and Big Daddy did it up in grand style as usual!

I got a friday night out with the girls. We had a great time catching up.

Thanks Kayla and Dawn.

Saturday I got my present.

I have been wanting this for a LONG time and now it is here.  I am a little intimidated by it but have had fun so far.  Obviously the "auto" setting is easy but I want to know how to do some cool effects I have seen in others photos

We then had two nights in a row of eating out.  One my favorite mexican restaurant and next Stone Brewing Company.  We have wanted to eat there for awhile and it was great.  We cant wait to go back. But you need reservations!

And of course my girl saying "happy birthday mommy" all weekend. :-)

Domestic Diva I am NOT

Ok so I have been spending WAY TOO much time reading other gals blogs and being super inspired to do all kinds of things. Knowing myself too well I am trying to temper my grandiose ideas and just try "simple" stuff. So I thought "ok my family likes fruit leather lets give a try". Looks easy enough.

Well two tries later, a big mess, and mainly very leathery fruit leather I am going to keep buying the Trader Joes brand.

I have learned from this project. I am just NOT a "wing it" type of gal.

I NEED to follow a recipe.
Looking pretty is NOT good enough.

I have however mastered making my own baby food.

Now if I could just get the boy to eat food other than his "milk"

I lost all my photos of my baby girl when my hard drive went out on me. It cost me A LOT of money to get them "retrieved". I had to send my hard drive some where in Georgia where they had a "safe room" to open it and try and get the photos. Luckily they got them and I finally put them back on my computer ( with a new hard drive AND a new external hard drive ) so I dont have to go through this again. So any way I started looking at baby pictures of the girl and I am just in amazement at how fast time goes by. It reminds me to really enjoy what is left of my boy's first year. They are only babies once.
Arent they beautiful!

"Get rid of all bitterness,rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
"Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity"

Love and Forgiveness go hand in hand. You can't have one without the other. Often so difficult. But in the end.

Ok I am floored and amazed at all the amazing BLOGS that people have out there. There are truly talented people ready to teach and share all their wonderful ideas. As usual I jumped into something (blogging) before I had any idea of what was out there. I will be adding some links to other BLOGs that some of you might find interesting.

Even though someone insensitivily termed it an "ego blog". No one has to read if they dont want. But in this day of reality shows and technology I THINK it is cool to use this as a creative communication tool, a cyber journal, a place to share and learn. Thanks to the womens blogs I have been reading for inspiring my mind to think creatively.

What a beautiful weekend. The weather was gorgeous.
My mom was here and we had a great time. Saturday was a massage and pedicure at Skinsational Spa with my mom. A fabulous mothers day present from my hubby. THANK YOU! It was so relaxing and nice to spend time with my mom.

Sunday was shopping day at the forum. Finally purchased "the skinny" jean! Then home for some rest and BBQ. We had ribs and "wings" yummy. I am starting to get this BBQ cooking.

Monday was hang at the house. Manster woke with a yucky cold and was miserable. :-(

Now the problem is getting revved up again after all the fun.
