Early morning brainstorming

I’ll be the first to say that if you were to step in my house and look¬†at the blank walls¬†you would ask “how long ago did you move in here?” and I will nervously respond “about a year and something months ago” and try and change subject. We went to Tee’s uncles house on Saturday and let me just say that they have a very lovely home. Its something out of a magazine. They have decorations and pictures all over the place I bet if it was like my home it wouldn’t have the same feel to it. When you walk into their home you feel welcomed it feels like a home. I think their vibes have to do something with that too. While Tee and his uncle were chatting me and Kason took a little walk around their house. WEIRDO ALERT!Anyways every room had a picture or some pictures of smiling family members. They also had this picture were my aunt (we are all family now so why not right?) was sitting with her mother and brothers/sisters in a living room. Then in that same frame was a picture of a home. I am thinking it was or still is her moms house the house she grew up in. I don’t know that picture really caught my attention. She is a successful women so to see where she grew up and where she is now is amazing. They are spiritual people they have a wall full of crosses of all sizes and they also have decorations with scriptures on them. Over all I loved there home.

 

So this morning well no actually yesterday afternoon, I was going trough my little arts and crafts section. Its just a little corner in my bedroom with my school stuff.¬†And I found some little picture frames that I had put away so I grabbed Kason’s cake smash pictures and put two in each frame. I then went to the living room and started to look around that wall was too big for three small frames it would look odd so I then took a few steps and ended up in the dinning area. And perfect. So I grabbed the hammer and some nails and hung them there. I shoulve taken some picture but¬†really and I mean really its not big deal. So now¬†when you walk in bam!!!!!!¬†You see them three frames just hanging there inviting¬†you to view them and admire them.

 

Today on my drive to work while listening to my morning music I thought to myself I should def get a bunch of frames and decorate them myself. Because I went to hobby lobby and Michaels and let me just say I can get about 16 frames and pay the same amount at the Dollar Tree or maybe get about 4 at Ross or Marshalls. And I like to decorate anyways so it works out. As soon as I walked in to work I got my laptop out an started opened up Pinterest and found so many ideas NOT just for frames but decorating period.

¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† One of my favorite ideas is hers.. But I’m thinking of maybe doing mine with glitter

I don’t have a picture of the following one because I’ve thinking about this one for a while! I want to get a picture frame and hot glue pearls (not real ones of course you would find those on my ears lol)¬†all around it.

                            Something like this, but in one solid color and a bigger frame

Okay I think that’s it for this one, I have more ideas I just don’t want to make this like two blogs long. I think I already did. But when I do this which would probably be by the end of this week before I start school again I will post pictures of it all.

Party Planning in February!

So I recently started to look into birthday themes for Kason’s first birthday. Its months away by the way……with that being said my¬†Tee thinks im starting way to early. I on the other hand think im being super smart about it because Kason¬†turns¬†¬†1 on June and Noah turns 6 on August. So basically I will only have a month to plan Noahs. Well I have come to a conclusion why not plan ahead of time so everything just wont be done last minute. Now I am not getting anything yet. I just want to have a theme picked out and have an idea of the decorations that I am going to do and all that. Noah will be 6 so I will let him pick out the theme for his. I already have an idea of what he wants maybe ninja turtles and if he does pick that then I have the cutest idea for the balloons and goodie bags!!!Now if he chooses like say spiderman I may struggle. Kason is too little to pick out his theme so me being the awesome mom that I am I will be choosing for him. At first I was set on Mickey Mouse because I just know I can do so much with that theme. Then I thought about it everybody does Mickey Mouse and any other cartoon character. I want to do something different and cute. I went online and found so many ideas! So this is my list for Kasons themes well at least my top choices

  1. Balloons (like the movie Up) but instead of having the characters I can just make a bunch of balloons decorations
  2. Little Man (ties/bowties and mustaches!) Now this is my ultimate favorite!
  3. Owls (I have an obsession with owls) but I think this will be a bit tricky
  4. Prince Kason (basically a bunch of crowns)
  5. Blue (exactly what it sounds like just all blue decorations)

So this are my top 5 there is one problem well not such a problem but a big deal kind of Kason was born on my dads birthday and Tees birthday (I know this is like¬† so weird to me but it has convinced me that me and Tee are totally made for each other lol) so I will have to kind of convince my dad to make his birthday party if he is having one some other day. Kasons party falls on a Sunday and Noah’s on a Thursday which means I will be making his on Saturday.

I am so excited to plan the kids birthday party!!!!!!!!

what do you guys think? suggestions are welcome…

IM BACK!!!

IM 100% BACK!!!

I have finished my classes and my next semester does not start till next march i believe!!! I passed both of my classes thank God!

I am glad i finished because now i can actually dedicate time to my blog.

I have some things i need to share after being in my apartment for almost a year i am finally getting around to decorating and i want to share that with you guys. I am starting by room. My first project is my kitchen/dinning room, 2nd. living room, 3rd. Rest room, 4th. Noahs room, and lastly our room.

I am not sure what i am doing with Noahs room but i will be letting him pick out a theme. Since we share rooms with Kason i plan on making him his own little space and decorating that our room is pretty big so i have a lot to work with.

 

Cloth diapers, school, and rashes

I got my cloth diapers already! I finally washed them yesterday and i will be using them today i know for a fact that they won’t last me till tomorrow lol but its okay. Remember i only got 5 so far. I will take pictures of him wearing them and post them later so wish us luck!

School is going awesome. I must admit i was putting things off and i had to remind my self that the classes were paid with my OWN money so if i don’t ¬†do what i am suppose to do thats money going down the drain. I am taking “Understanding Human Behavior” and i like it. It gives you advice or more like tips on how to deal with certain patients that i will encounter once i become an MA.

Rashes oh Lordy Lord Kason gets one rash after another. He recently has this “rash” on his face its just red sometimes it goes away and but once he starts messing with it, it comes back. His skin is so dry i use avenno but i think that makes it worse. Any suggestions mommys out there? He also has this rash on his neck his grandma told me to put powder she said its most likely because he sweats and since he has rolls for days lol it might irritate him. If they don’t get better by next week i will be taking him to his pediatrician.

I would post some adorable pictures but I’m working hard hhhmmmmmmhh… Okay I’m not working that hard lol but my phone is dying so I’ll do it on my next post.¬†

Oh i will also be doing Friday Favorites (mommy edition) at the end of each month. I am trying out some new stuff and i will be sharing my opinions:) Some may or may not be mommy or kid related but most of them will.
