My Attempt at a Fall Photoshoot.....

The girls and I went out yesterday and just drove looking for fun places to stop and take pictures. We had so much fun! Here are a few shots from my amateur photoshoot....

Not a tough job at all when your subjects are so cute!!

Thursday's Menu: Buffalo.......

So you obviously know what comes to 4th grade Social Studies the week before Thanksgiving! Why the study of the Pilgrims & Indians, of course.
Hallie was beside herself yesterday as she danced, giggled, and announced........

"I can't wait until Thursday!" she joyfully exclaimed.
"Why?! I anxiously asked.
"Because we get to eat BUFFALO BALLS!" she said with uncontainable 4th grade pride.
"Whaaaa?" I nervously questioned.
"BUFFALO BALLS! You know B-U-F-F-A-L-O meat rolled into a B-A-L-L!" she spelled out ever so sarcastically, because good grief, what else could I be thinking!?
Hello!? Hence the name BUFFALO BALLS!

"OH! Buffalo Balls, of course...Yum, I wish I was in 4th grade!"
My question is.....when the teacher told them what Thursday's "palate-friendly" lesson would hold, how did she do that with a straight face?

ModgePodge Remodel... is hosting "Show Us Your Life" and today's featured room is the BATHROOM! Since I just redid the girl's bathroom last summer, I thought it would be fun to participate.

I always loved this bathroom, but the girls began to complain that it was a bit too "Blahhh"....I had to agree, so we decided to add some color! I took some "Blahh Before" pictures, before I went MODGEPODGE NUTS on the place.

Here are a couple of befores..
I know, Blahhhh! huh?

and here are some AFTERS....

This wall shelf needed its own little makeover...


and now AFTER: TA-DAAA!
The cabinets were for sure in need of some fabulous color....

and now I love me some BLUE cabinets!

I call this the ModgePodge Remodel, because after this bathroom redo, I should own stock in Hobby Lobby and it's ModgePodge aisle.
It was a messy project, but lots of fun!
Thanks for stopping by!

Squirrely Kind of Love.......

Yesterday, while sitting in the car waiting for my oldest daughter to come out from a friend's house, I noticed Hallie sitting very still watching a squirrel scampering around in the yard. After a few moments of silent squirrel observation, she said, "Oh yea! Look at that little guy, he is DEFINITELY lookin' for a lady!"
Not real sure why she thought he looked like he was in need of a "lady"??
What I saw was a squirrel running around chasing his nuts....
(my apologies for the play on words, but seriously he was!)
I guess she saw something different.
