Umm, Umm, Good

OMG, why did ACmoore start selling Auntie Anne's Pretzel Kits??? The kids and I are hooked. Everytime we visit the mall we treat ourselves to this awesome little treat, so imagine my delight when I stumbled across these little bad boys on a recent ACM run!!! I couldn't wait to get home and try them out so let me give you the rundown. For under $7.00 bucks you are able to make 8 or so full size pretzels or an assortment of other pretzel shapes (get creative, we did) AND they taste exactly like AA's!! I watched a couple youtube videos and the kids and I were off to create some umm, umm good pretzels!! We've purchased several kits since our first try and let me say these pretzels haven't disappointed us yet ( you really must try them, they come with a salt and cin/sugar pack)...
A little pretzel die-cut detail for ya!

Tatted Up, Henna Style

Told you that I had more LO's in store... This LO is one of my fav's. While in Myrtle Beach for the 2011 Nationals the kids all decided to get tattoos. You really had to be there to see the serious expressions on their little faces ( I tried to capture them to the best of my abilities!). After getting their tatts the kids couldn't stop showing them off to anyone who would look, I think J kept his for almost two weeks!

Play Hard or Go Home

Over the last few months I have made more of an effort to get our pictures off my computer and into scrapbooks; my kids were beginning to turn into jpegs and as a scrapbooker I just cannot have that! Soooo my next few post will be scrapbook layouts that I have completed recently.
My youngest DS plays on an AAU basketball team and during tournament time our family goes all in!!! This LO captures some great memories during the 2011 National's (We placed 5th, not too bad for a first year team). These young guys put there heart and soul into the game and I couldn't be more proud!

Happy Holidays Pinterest Style!

Hi Blog family,

Christmas is my favorite time of the year and I enjoy looking for creative (yet inexpensive ways) to dress the house... This year, thanks to Pinterest and all the wonderfully creative people who share their ideas/posts I was able to give our home just the right touch of DIY love that I was looking for. If you haven't joined pinterest you are really missing out, send me a message if you would like an invite! Hugs and Happy New Years to you all!
