Sunday afternoon

This is how a spent a hour or so Sunday afternoon. Reading and drinking, Ohhh, to bad my house was a cluttered mess of toys and projects yet to be completed. I just found a spot that was cleared off and perused my magazines.

I found Flea Market Style at my local Walmart Saturday morning. And I absolutely recommend Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Spice Tea. I bought it at the Starbucks in Barnes and Noble. I love love love it. They sell it by the cup or you can buy the tin. Give it a try if you like cinnamon. Funny how a cup of tea and magazines can make you just so happy.

Easter with Martha

While browsing the Martha Stewart web-site I found some inspiration for Easter decorating.
I want to make an egg garland this year, love this.

I have made these carrots before and they work great with cheetos or cheddar bunny crackers inside also.

Hope you're inspired!

Spring wreaths

Although, it is snowing here I am searching the web for a spring wreath to make for my front door.

Love this wreath @Maryjanes and Galoshes

She used brown paper bags to create this beauty.

Good Housekeeping

The eggs are a cute touch on the bottom of this one with the word welcome. They could be easily be removed and something else added in their place.

Haru's shop Etsy

Found this one on Etsy and the bright colors caught my eye.

What's dressing up your front door these days?

This is our sweet little puppy Mac. He grew from the above picture to the one below in literally weeks. At about 10 months old and 70+ pounds, he has turned into a BEAST! He has chewed and ruined shoes, my foam pots outside, the bean bags he used to use as a bed, and legos seem to be his favorite snack.

We are starting our 1st day of training classes today at the Humane Society. Did you know most Humane Society's offer training, and it's about half the cost of the puppy classes at other places.

Since we missed the puppy kindergarten, we have to start with one on ones. After last weekends incidents, I knew I didn't have a choice. My husband gave me a week to find training for me, the kids, and Mac of course. (Mac doesn't seem to listen as well to us) Sam my 7 year old happened to be in the path of Mac on Sunday and was bumped into the coffee table, liquid stitches and a black eye, made me decide we needed more control over him now!

Wish me luck.
