We went to out friends the Murphys house on Monday where they have a chicken coop. They so graciously allowed us to come over and let the kids feed chickens and gather eggs. Reese has so much fun! Brodie loved just running around on their land. It was a lot of fun and we will have to do it again! Thanks Shelice!! :) Look at Reese's face she is soo happy!!

Diaper Cake

My mom and I had a baby shower to go to for a family friend and we where trying to think of a cute gift to get her so we decided to make a diaper cake. It was our first attempt but I think we did a good job. They loved it!

Tutu Dance Bag

I wanted to get Reese a dance bag for her dance class on Wednesdays since they have a change of shoes during class, from ballet to tap. The bag I was thinking of getting her was $24 bucks plus and extra $12 to get in monogrammed. To expensive for me so I went looking online to see what I could come up with and I fond this tutu dance bag tutorial. So I went and bought the fabric and with some help from my mom we whipped of a super cute dance bag this afternoon! I am going to get it monogrammed later in the week. Its super cute, Reese loves it and it was WAY cheaper than the other bag (and cuter too!)

Once a month cooking.

I am tired! My mom and I planned to do some freezer meals to help out on nights she has class and cub scout nights and such. I have the Once a month cooking cookbook but saw that they came out with a new one called Once a month cooking -Family Favorites. So we picked out the month plan that best catered to our taste, they also have two week stints if you want to do a smaller amount. The book is awesome because it spells out how much of what you need and makes a shopping list for you and also tells you how much to prepare at one time so you aren't going back and forth chopping. You chop and prepare in one phase and bag everything together in the other. Now it took me a long time!! I started at 9 in the morning and stopped at 5:30 a I finished 22 meals. I am going to go back to my moms and finish the other 10 tomorrow. But it so nice to now she has a months worth of dinners done! Just thaw and follow the directions, which is to put in oer for 45 min and dinner it done! Much faster that preparing every night and better than fast food and better on you wallet and waistline for going out to eat! Just as easy as getting a stoffers lasagna but taste better and a variety of meals. She has chicken, beef and fish and only one casserole. I love it! I know when I get my own place I will do it for our household. There are so many websites dedicated to help you plan OAMC (Once a month cooking)

Urban Decay Makeovers!

We got Urban Decay ( a makeup brand) makeovers at Ulta (a makeup store) a few weeks back. It was really fun and I had a very spunky fun girl do my makeup and she made sure to put a little sparkle in my make up! I love some sparkle! I would wear it every day if I could! EW had a fun girls outing Devin wasn't there because she was at youth conference. :(

Cow Appreciation Day

During the first week of July it was cow appreciation day at Chick Fil A. Where if you dressed up like a cow you got a free meal. I love free stuff but more importantly I LOVE Chick Fil A so I dressed up our gang and headed out to get some free food! The kids love to play in there play places. The one on Macon Rd for your local folks is the best in my opinion. We might not of been the cutest cows but it worked for the hour we needed it to!
