Has it really been a whole week!?

Good grief, I usually post every day but these last few weeks have been jam packed with stuff going on.'s a catch up on my p365 and of course today's awesome Sketchy Thursdays sketch!
Sketch first of course :)
My girls dancing with my cousin at her wedding.  The creamy pocket thingy is from a Starbucks gift card holder...been saving that for awhile :)
And holy moly and whole weeks worth of we go!
Friday...this is me...I figured I should show up in my pictures once in awhile!

Saturday...we moved the rest of our stuff out of more buyer friendly house.  I still have some more finishing touches to do to the living room but it's coming along!  Glad to have my cozy house back.

Sunday: the first signs of spring around here, I got my first flower from the kids and had to find my little bud vase :)

Monday we got a goody box from my cousin in the UK, handmade bracelets/necklaces for the girls, a very British looking mini Cooper for Carter and CADBURY for ME...guess who the lucky one was?

Tuesday: This was the very first day I forgot to take a picture for p365...BUT in my defense I was taking so many pictures for the April Scrapbook Kit Club kit that it felt like I'd taken my picture lol.  So for this day we get to see a little sneak peek at next months kit :)

Wednesday: My dad has been working on a garden for us this year since last fall, it's finally almost time to plant, the kids are SO excited and spent alot of the day outside yesterday with grandpa.

And last but not least today's....many months ago I sent my hubby a link to this necklace on etsy and said he should get it for me for my birthday and then promptly forgot about it.  But then he surprised me, he remembered, ordered with plenty of time for my birthday and then the etsy store was thumbs down bad on communicating and he ended up getting it week after my birthday.  But I love it and am super impressed that he remembered and planned it all out and it's so pretty...he did good!

Oh and a LINK to my next photography class :)

Lots to say today...

So I missed my blog post yesterday...busy busy first things first we have my Sketchy Thursday sure to check out the blog to see the sketch for this week and the prize up for grabs!!
Then we have my p365...Wed was my birthday...started off the day with my favorite donuts ever and ended the day with milk chocolate cupcakes with dark chocolate was a SWEET day!!!

Then yesterday I was looking on etsy for some living room pillows that I could see in my head but I couldn't find anywhere...which lead me to learning how to make these flowers....coming soon to an etsy near you LOL.   Rachael and I had a great time making them and can't wait to make more...including some yellow ones to match my new living room!

And then last but not least if you have an slr and are scared to take it out of auto mode I'll be teaching a class at SBKC starting April's the LINK...hope to see you there!

Every morning my husband gets up to read his Bible for a bit before work and Carter joins him.  He's the lightest sleeper and there is no sneaking in a few minutes for yourself before he wakes up.  Carter loves this time with daddy.  As soon as I walked in he said Mom is this your picture of the day!?  So even though it was still pretty was.

Weekend recap!

Here's my busy weekend potd's!
Thursday: hubby got me a pretty new hydrangea :)
Friday I had the pleasure of taking pictures of the baby from Monday's see more of her session go here....she was amazing and let me do anything I wanted!

Saturday we painted a happy's the before (we tried to sell our house so this is very buyer friendly neutral/no personality...) 

Here's hubby midpaint job, "after" pics to come soon, still doing some final touches and waiting on a few things I ordered :)

Yesterday Ellie lost her first tooth during Sunday School!

Sketchy Thursdays!

This week the dt was lucked out and got to play with some pretty digi papers.  Obviously I'm no digi designer....but her papers sure are pretty!  Here's this week's sketch using Sassy papers!
And yesterdays p365

Every Wed my husband takes turns taking our kids to HyVee on a "donut date" although lately it's been a healthier version the "egg date".  They love going and look forward to it being their turn.  The fact that I have a balloon tied to my curtain is just more evidence that kids live here.

Squishy newborn husband's cousin's wife (brother's dog's friend....) had a baby yesterday morning.  They didn't find out what they were having and I was really really hoping for a girl for them.  They have a little boy.  And boy is she chunky!!!  9lbs 5oz 20.5 inches.  Beefy.  All my babies were big like that and holding her made me want another for just a few minutes but then I recovered.  Can't wait to take her "official" newborn pictures on friday.  Fun to have a newborn for my p365!
Check out the creases in her ankle!!!
