I'm back..

Whew.. those were the longest 3 days ever! Food poisoning, awful! I was 3 days in bed! Thanks to all of you who prayed for me, and that left me sweet comments to get better! I really appreciate it! I'm back to my old self! My mom and brother were so sweet, they came on Thursday to take care of me. What would you do without family? I love them so much. My mom was worried, she brought me medicine, chicken soup ( it was delicious) and Gatorade's. They stayed with me mostly all day Thursday. My brother was so sweet, he got a wet towel to put on my forehead for the fever. He was sitting right next to me. Later on, my sister came to visit. I love my family!

So today, we took our 1 year anniversary pictures in Scottsdale, AZ. It was really fun! Lydene, our photographer was great! We will get to see our pictures in about a week. I cant wait to see them! Lydene was really fun and had great ideas! Thanks Lydene!

So I decided to go with a puffy hair look for the pictures. To my luck, it was so windy my hair was super puffy! I like the look though! I kept telling Lydene, I feel like a model with a big fan blowing my hair! ha.. I had two different outfits. One formal and the other more casual. Pictures coming soon!

Saturday was the first night I went out after being in bed for so long. We went to Dave & Buster's with our family. Oh.. we had the greatest time! My cousin Sara and her boyfriend came from Tucson to visit and they had a great time also. I was just like a kid in a candy store! I was playing , looking around just having the greatest time ever. There I am in the middle!

Here are some of the custom orders I sent out a while ago. I never posted pictures. I think they came out really cute!

This is a project I tried today. I bought 3 paper mache eggs and I decoupaged them using paper from an old novel. I am still not done with them. I want to add some embellishment. I will post pictures soon!

I finally made the laundry detergent! :) It took me so long to make because I couldn't find Washing Soda. I bought it yesterday at Frys. Pink laundry detergent! Isn't this cool? I used a pink bar soap. Wish me luck with this detergent!

Thats all for tonight. Thanks again for your prayers!
Take Care!


  1. Glad you are feeling better! I can't wait to see your pictures!
    Your orders turned out great!
    Okay, I have decided I want to make laundry detergent too! I can't wait! I will probably be very busy this week, homeschooling, making detergent, sewing a baby blanket and more! :)
    How fun!!!

  2. You look adorable. I can't wait to see the pics! I'm glad you are feeling better. And your pink laundry is pretty dang cool! I love the picture of the grated soap.

  3. So glad that you are better! How sweet of your family to come and take care of you. Being sick is the worst...well, food poisoning sick is the worst. Ugh.

    So fun about your anniversary photos! I can't wait to see them. Your hair looks great!!

    I can't wait to hear about how the detergent goes. I've really been wanting to do it but our washer/dryer are broken and we have to use my inlaws. They require a specail detergent (HE3) but when we get our own washer I definatly want to do it!

  4. I'm so glad you are feeling better. A good family is wonderful to have. I am also blessed with one! I'm anxious to see how the laundry soap turns out. Keep me posted. I was gonna try it but wondered if it would work well or not.

  5. Thank you for your prayers!! I love all your ideas... I also made my own detergent... I love it!

  6. Wow, adorable stuff!!! Glad you're feeling better and can't wait to see your photos!
