Easter eggs, swings, and sunshine!

Last weekend we did the local egg search. Let me tell you something...parents are ridiculous!!! I can't believe how many parents condone running into the hunt, grabbing as many as possible, and being rude! In my opinion, you're simply teaching them that quantity is better than quality. Marlee went into the hunt, finally got to pick up her own egg and ended up winning a prize! So, have at it parents! Enjoy your children and their sugar highs!!!



Afterward, we spent some time playing in the park. Marlee's favorite thing is to climb the stairs and swing. Sweet and simple. My kind of girl!

Today, my dad and grandma went to Nebraska for the weekend, so my mom joined Marlee and me for church. After church, we came to her house and had shrimp pasta and wine. It was calm and delicious!! My mom then put a few eggs in the backyard for Marlee to go and pick up!


Crafting with Marlee

So a couple weeks back Marlee and I were crafting..
Crafting is fun...
But she's kind of destructive...
This is what happens...

Things start nicely...
She enjoy placing the stars on the paper...
Then she decides it's better to just destroy them!!!!

Yep...we be crafty...

Postponing school...yet again!

Well, unfortunately, I have to postpone school again.

I have a loan from my semester at Doane College that I guess I never got a bill for and it went to collections. I've set up payments to get it current and out of default, but University of Northern Colorado won't accept my financial aid package until it is out of default. It won't be fixed for another 8 months...

Soooo...I get to wait... Kind of makes me sad, but at the same time, I'll be able to get my new job squared away first and not have so much on my plate all at once...

Trying to find the positive in the situation! Go me!

Marlee and Me Video

Just doing some playing around...thought I'd throw together some random photos plus a great song and see what became of it all!!! Voila!
video

If I truly embraced the style within me...

I'd rock these glasses...from Lookmatic...the REEVE.

I'd wear outfits like this from Francesca's and feel ever so chic as a young mommy!

  I'd have a room like this in my house...

Maybe one day I can grasp all these wants and make them mine.

This little vacation I've been made to take has given me the chance to work on my house and make it mine for once. That blog post is coming...I promise...I'm just being kind of lazy about getting things done! It's VACATION for Pete's sake! (Who is Pete anyways...anyone actually know??)
