Broken toe

I remember being in 4th grade and I begged my mom for these shoes that I just had to have! Her response was, "I'm not buying you those cheap shoes... they'll hurt your feet!" In the end I got the shoes (yes, I was that spoiled) The very next day I was playing the usual game of kickball at school. I kicked the ball and instantly my toes killed. Without all the details, I sprained my big toe! So if you have read my blog at all, you know that I'm a shoe hord! While I can't always buy my kids the most expensive shoes, I still try to get them some that comfortable and that won't break their toes on the playground. Plus UMI has a bunch of cuteness on sale!.... And they have offered a FREE PAIR OF SHOES to a SF reader! GO browse the site and enter below!

So many pictures

So this summer while in WA we took our kids to Krispy Kremes one morning & while we were watching the donuts being made, the sweetest lady came up to me and introduced herself! I was so impressed. Then she let me know all about her Creative Keepsake business. I always love to hear about fun businesses. I'm so behind on getting my pictures organized and I thought it would take me a jillion years so I've been putting it off... But since the Story Book Creator is 50% off right now, I decided to give it a shot! Just drop your images in and make fun books for gifts, invitations & individual pages! I think I'm going to have fun with this! So easy! Definitely should check out this sale before the end of the month! Thanks Gloria!

Cooking show

I have a son who LOVES to cook!  Every once in awhile he'll ask if he can have his own cooking show.  So I break out the video camera & help get out everything he needs. Then he creates a fruit salad usually & then I'm the camera man.  Even though he's 8, I still get so nervous when he wants to use a knife. My husband says he can handle it.  But me, I hand him a plastic knife.  So you could imagine how excited when we received some products from Khun Rikon. The kinderkitchen line is awesome.  Everything from Mouse Measuring cups to this awesome dog knife.  Easy grip handle, cuts food but can't stab anything with it... which is a concern at my house;)  I even found my new fav kitchen gadget too.  This dual peeler is FANTASTIC.  I never use  vegetable peelers because they never work right.  This one, I've had about 2 weeks and I can't stop using it.  I make excuses to peel anything. Peaches, cucumbers, tomatoes...  Not that I normally peel tomatoes, but I tried it and it works really well.  Great site for all your kitchen gadget needs.  I think Santa will be using this site to fill some stockings;)

Vamp it up

When it comes to decorating, I'm a pretty simple girl. But while I'm away from my home right now, I can't wait to get back and take on some serious revamping! I think I'll start with making a wall like this. I love picture frames and I love paint, so this idea... course I heart it! Check out all these funny room ideas here.
