Ive been too long gone!!!!

25 Jan

Well, its been a crazy last couple of months.  I helped my mom pack and move.  Then,  I too had to move sooner then expected.  I had to redo my whole computer as well because it wasn’t working properly.  I see it as a blessing. I finally went through all of my pictures.  I have not done this in 3 years.  It took me hours.  I ended up deleting over 7,000 photos and kept 2,000. Ive been doing a lot of getting rid of things from the past that no longer serve me.  I have rid my life of things that I want no ties to or memories of anymore.  It feels so good!!!  I recommend that everyone do it more often then!!!! 3 years is way too long.  At least it is for me.  Anyways, I have been learning to trust myself more.  Always go with your first instinct with everything.  Your body knows whats right.  Deny it and its no good.  I know from a ton of personal experience!

Breathe in


Happy Birthday Ava!

1 Nov


Happy Birthday Ava! I can’t believe your 7. Where has all the time gone. It seems like yesterday, you were the baby I could never put down. For 4 months I had to carry you around in a sling. If I dared to put you down for a minute, you would wake up crying. I could barely shower.

Now, your learning so much. You do almost everything your self. You get dressed by yourself and do your own hair. You even cut your own nails. Your such a great helper. You always want to help me cook and clean. Thank-you for being wonderful you!

Your first time going to Disneyland. Love your hair. You’d just given yourself a mullet! I wish I had more photos to put on here of you when you were little. They are all packed or on disks. I haven’t printed pictures in 6 years, which is a little crazy.

Camping in the great northwest.


Time flies

My girls started school this week. I can’t believe how big they are getting. Zoe grew over 2 inches this summer. Her feet are now bigger then mine. I’m getting hand me downs from my daughter. I never thought I would see the day when that would be the case. Little Ava had to miss the first 3 days of school, because she was sick with a cough and fever. Today was officially the first day of school for her. I had six hours all to myself! It time to get back into doing what I love!!! I’ve started drawing again. It’s been years since I drew an actual picture.

Here is Zoe all ready for school. Too bad I didn’t get her boots in the picture because they are too cute for words. They are blue and black animal print boots from justice.

Here is Ava all dressed up for school.

This is Ava and myself in shadow walking to line up.

This is the drawing I’ve started. I’ll be adding watercolors to it soon.

My desk is a mess

Update with a picture


I need help!! My Desk is a mess and has been for months. I am so sick and tired of cleaning up and feeling like I am getting no where. Everyday, there is more junk in my house for me to decide to keep, throw away, donate or recycle. I have to say that I am having a harder time doing the recycling, then I would like to admit. I do try and recycle other things in other ways. For instance, I made my own file box out of a box from costco. I will post a tutorial on it in the next couple of days. It was really easy. Only took 2 hour and is uber cute. Plus it was practically free. I only paid for the mod podge. Next time I will be making wheat glue instead. I never knew about it until my extra hippy sissy told me about it. More pictures to follow soon. Have a good night and dont stay up too late. Your health is the most important thing.

Here are some close ups of stuff in my desk area……..




plus random photos of things in the bedroom….


Zoe drew this picture for me. I love my children’s art. It’s the Best!

I started this blog, or rather attempted to start this blog, at least 5 months ago. A lot has happened in my life in such a short amount of time. It has been a really hard, trying, enlightening time. But still i fight and i whether the storm…….and in this time mass trial and error i have managed to make some rather delicious batches of cookies and cakes. Some of which I will never be able to repeat again :( BAD HABIT of not writing down recipes of bookmarking enough!!!!! I am learning. It takes so much work just to get ready to blog about baking and taking pics as I go……MY oh MY so many bloggers have made it look so easy. When I am able to get a little more organized I will post some pictures. I am wishing for a very productive year…….


Driving to work in the am on a beautiful, sunny, springtime morning. I love my shades!!!! They make me laugh. Plus they were $6 at Big Lots. Love that store!!!! I love getting a good deal even more.. I am always out to get a good deal. I have expensive taste and I am far from rich. Besides I am a single mother doing it mostly on her own. I am so thankful for my wonderful boyfriend, mother and great friends. I wouldnt be able to do it without all of you in my life. NO matter how big or small of a part you play, you are all very important to me, my sanity and happiness. I know they say that you are in charge of the way you feel and respond to situations. I just helps having others around who always seem to put you in a good mood no matter how frustrating and pissed off I am. You guys are always there to cheer me up. I can count on that for sure. I love you Burger crew :)
