Look what i found!!

Finally I have found somethings that are worth talking about!! That were FREE or super cheap!! I don't tend to find good deals, all I find are broken tables at goodwill for like $200 or free dirt on craigslist! Im not super cool like my sister Peggy and her husband, who basically have people throwing free antiques or nice furniture at them (just a couple examples), nope I just get the rejects. But not today! I was driving home from a workout when I passed a super cute buffet/night stand/sofa table/console table (apparently I don't know what it is) sitting on the side of a house just a block away from mine. It said...
Well I have a good home! I immediately pulled over to try and cram it in my trunk when I realized that it was full of stuff for a upcoming yard sale! I rushed home, all of 1 block, threw everything outta my car and started to go back. As I pulled up to the stop sign on my street I saw a truck full of furniture drive by! Ive gotta tell you, anything that is posted for free in Rio Rancho is gone in like five minutes so I obviously wanted to cry right there because I was sure they took my little furniture piece..."STUPID YARD SALE" was all I could think. I decided to drive by just to make sure she was gone and there she was, in all her heavily used and dirty glory!

She definitely isn't perfect...

But she is MINE, and I beat out all the other furniture hoarders in RR to get her!

You want to see what makes her the best??

Yep, her sexy little casters!!

Ive got a screaming kid so I'll let you know tomorrow about my other amazing find!

PS Is it wierd that i gave this piece of furniture a gender?
PSS dont look at my gross floors!


little boys

I snapped some shots of the boys on Easter in their adorable outfits. Carter is getting so big and talks NONSTOP. He's not a little baby anymore, he is smart and getting bigger everyday. Every time I see him I practice with him on saying 'Peggy's my best friend'. haha I am sure one day he'll think I am that creepy aunt that he hates to see because I squeeze his cheeks and give wet kisses, but for now he loves me.
I made Carter this bow tie using the tutorial here
Jack is just so lovable, you can't help it. His adorable rolls, and chipmunk cheeks are precious. We fight over Jack, well unless he is hungry.. then there is no messing with him. He takes eating pretty serious as you might be able to tell.


pipin' hot

We got a new blog look! Do you like it? I do.

Have you ever done something really stupid and thought ‘wow I am such an idiot!’ Well I had one of those moments the other day and man did I feel silly, especially since my boss and a few clients were my audience.

glasses 'pre' melting
At work I get to teach cooking classes and as I was bending over to put some potatoes back into a 450 degree oven I felt my glasses slip from where they were tucked into my shirt. But when I looked down I didn’t see them anywhere so I shut the oven, stood up and thought ‘that’s strange where are my glasses?’ So I reopened the oven bent down and looked in and way way in the back at the very bottom where my glasses! And in my head I’m like ‘holy crap they are melting! What do I do??? What do I say?’ So I very quietly without trying to draw too much attention grab a long metal spoon and start trying to reach them. Mind you this oven is pipin' hot and my boss is looking at me like I am crazy. So I finally get them and my clients look over at me and say ‘I think they melted a little’ in which I say ‘oh that’s fine they will cool off’ and sheepishly walk out of the kitchen.

I felt really dumb and now get to wear glasses each day that are partly melted on the ends and around the rims! Lucky me.
