A little break...

I didn't tend to take a bloggy break, but that is just what I did. 
It was much needed I think.
I wasn't finding much inspiration or focus lately.
Time to regroup and start fresh.
I have lots to share with my children, so look for updates soon. :)
I am also still working on my 101 in 1001.....

What are your favorite posts from my blog?
What are the things you like the most?

This might help me find some direction. :)

dentist and headbands...

I went to the dentist last night......good news no tooth decay, teeth look good....
but Dr. wants me to have my FOUR wisdom teeth removed.
Claiming one day I will need them removed and I am young now and can bounce back easier!
not happy about this one!

Van, who doesn't like anything in his mouth, wouldn't let the dentist stick anything in his be got booted back to the pediatric dentist.
He is not happy about that because he likes this dentist better.
click here and here for catch up on Van's dental trips.

found some really cool headbands today on Bon Bon Rose's site.
click here Pinkpeas handmade accessories to see where you can get these lovely headbands.
look great with a vintage dress and a clutch purse too!

Hope everyone has a Happy Weekend!

should I or shouldn't I?

I am thinking that I want to cut my hair and get some bangs, pretty much like the girl in this picture.
I know my hair isn't this long.

I haven't had bangs since I let them grow out my senior year of high school!

What do you think?

here is a pic of me now...

yea or nay.....

New Year, New lifestyle

Two days before Christmas, I was diagnosed with Type Two Diabetes.
This was somewhat not a suprise because I had gestational diabetes with three of my four pregnancies.
My father has Diabetes and his parents before him did too.
 So, this new year, I will be learning how to live with this and change my lifestyle along the way.

Dream Home, Dream kitchen

all photographs from HGTV website.

In years past, I used to be really obsessed excited about the HGTV Dream Home.
The last few years my interest has cool considerably.
 However the other day I took a look at some of the photographs on the HGTV website.
Even though this is still my DREAM HOME, there are some things about this years home that I do like.

1. the kitchen with the long bar.
 We have a small cramped kitchen in our home.
Our kitchen is the heart of our home where everyone meets and where we do everything.
(Tatum sets her toys up there to play, so she can be near Mommy. The boys do their homework there., ect.)
I think in this kitchen everyone could still hang out right there and not feel cramped.

 This is the "walk in pantry". Now we buy lots of food. ( 4 kids, 2 adults)
We have a refrigerator and a deep freezer in our garage. We also have more storage in our garage for food because it doesn't all fit in our kitchen cupboards.
Now, I am not sure I need a whole room for food, but I would have enough room for all our food in there and it wouldn't all on top of each other and hard to find. 

.... and as if the walk in pantry wasn't enough, we have the recycle room from the kitchen, on the way to the garage.
Yes, there is more storage there!
Do you think you could fill it?
I think about all the big boxes we get from Sam's Club.....we could fill it!


 That's it, Thanks for dreaming along with me. :)
