Random Thoughts And Some Spam on a Sunday

So I have discovered that lately A LOT of my emails have been going to peoples Spam folders....fantastic....seriously this is really annoying and I have no idea why!!  I have been trying to respond to as many comments as possible lately - I wonder how many haven't even made it to you!!!


I have boys...boys are rough, they are tough, and they fall.  And apparently my boys - at just over 2 years old - break things.  Not lamps or vases mind you, but bones!!!  When Tommy was a little over 2 he broke his leg!!  This morning Jack fell off the couch and managed to break his arm!!  Yup....good times!!!  (on the plus side it was only a minor break and they think it will heal very very quickly!!)


I suddenly have 4 giveaways lined up to share with you all - I am going to try to spread them over the next couple of weeks.  Its kind of fun - I have been given to opportunity to review a couple different fun items and share them with you!!  {so keep and eye out!!}


We were blessed with absolutely amazing, to die for weather yesterday.  Hubby had to get work done, so my MIL and I took the boys to our favorite farm (4-Town Farm) to buy flowers and some veggies to plant in our gardens.  I am so excited I finally got a dahlia (I've always wanted a dahlia) and I'm even more excited that as of today it is still alive (I am so afraid I will kill it!!)

In addition to the new plants we bought for our gardens, we also have tons of seeds for more veggies and flowers.  I am going to start the seeds in newspaper pots that I have made.  {I always fear that if I sow them directly into the ground I will lose them or the boys will dig them up} I had so much fun making the newspaper pots that I am going to try to put together a little tutorial for those later this week.


And last {but not least}  this past Friday my family finally had family pictures taken - I was even able to convince hubby to willingly join in :).  My friend Danielle (over at MazMama) took them for us.  She is absolutely amazing and I can't wait to share all the pictures with you.  Until I can do that, here is a quick preview!!!

Isn't she amazing?!


So for now that's it .  I'm off to try to make some authentic chicken and dumplings!!  Wish me luck!!
