Homemade lip gloss

I ran into an awesome recipe for homemade lip gloss over at Bubbly Nature and knew I had to try it with Miss S.

We used the left over hearts we had from our Valentine's day countdown

Our lips are super smooth now!

Valentine cupcakes

We have no chocolate in the house and this mommy needed a chocolate fix so we made cupcakes!!

Miss S was so funny making them she put one sprinkle on at a time. Most children would just dump as much as they could on the cupcake but not Miss S she put one or two perfectly placed and that was it. She also cracked her first solo egg and didn't get any shell in the bowl. I was so proud and she was so excited.

I'm enjoying two one right now while doing my blog surfing.

Mirror headboard

We are in the process of redoing our master bedroom. We wanted a headboard that would be attached right to the wall. After looking and looking I found one I really liked.

I found it here

Loved Loved Loved it but $40 just for mirrors made me shiver. So I bookmarked it and thought maybe I would find something that would work or I would break down and buy the mirrors from IKEA.

I took little Miss S to the dollar store this morning because I needed a baby gift bag and of course I had to look around. I ran into some mirrors and started laying them out on the floor to see if they would work as a headboard. I decided that it was worth the shot.

This is what I came up with!! Not bad for $8 and all of 10 minutes to hang it.

Do you think I should add another row to the bottom?

Valentine's Day countdown

Got this amazingly cute idea from cuddles and cameras

I painted my heart plate pink with some spray paint I had left over from another project. The packages of hearts from our dollar store was a mixed pack. I just wrote the numbers on the hearts with a sharpie.

Little Miss S is so excited! Some hearts have just candy and others have a piece of candy and a little piece of paper with an activity inside.

So after my laptop cord charger broke I ordered a new one off ebay. It arrived and only days later my laptops hard drive crashed..... HUGE bummer. But my wonderful parents surprised me this Christmas with a new laptop ten times better then the one I had. I still plan on getting the old one fixed so that Miss S can use it.

I hope everyone had a blessed holiday and a wonderful start to the new year.

Santa was very good to us this year. Now we just need a bigger house to store all this stuff.

Miss S has a birthday next week and I'm preparing for her birthday bash! There will be lots of posts with party stuff.

Alphabet match

The wheel has uppercase letters all the way around and the clothespins have the lowercase letters written on it. Miss. S matched the lowercase letter with the uppercase. She has a hard time with q,d and b hopefully this will help.
