it's going to be a busy week for me. Starting tomorrow-Amira turns 13, whoa!!! I need to get myself together and make her a card to add it her gifts I will lay out for her to wake up to in the morning. Not that she needs much-she scored a PSPgo & a Kindle from Christmas. THEN this Sat Kiela is turning 7yrs old. We have yet to recover from Christmas and we have to turn right around and do birthdays.
Last week I had to do a few CHA projects for Making Memories-in the top photo you can see some of that madness. Good thing Jenni Bowlin needed a project that was already done-less pressure! I just received her new line over the weekend-I am doing a Valentine album now. I hope to have that posted later this week. I am hunting my mailbox for the new Love Struck line from Making Memories. This is my fave time to create stuff. I just LOVE Valentine products. I can't wait to make some butter cookies with icing & sprinkles!
I took these photos today of my almost daily eats. I make us all a fresh fruit smoothie with yoplait banana/strawberry yogurt everyday. Mira loves it. Kiela loves just the yogurt. And we have really gotten into making our own pizza. We go months not eating fast food. I make a simple fresh tomato sauce that I would always eat when we lived in Naples-I get 10 roma tomatoes, lots of fresh garlic, salt, pepper...cook it til the tomatoes turn to mush-done!! Another big fave that Mira loves to make herself. Looks good, right?! I am so full now.
I have been longing for this gorgeous jewelry holder from Pottery Barn. I saw it at that store and could not leave w/o it. It was bigger that I was thinking but I still love it. I need to add some sand or stones to it-it is shaky.
Tech-ie girls...it was LaVaughn's big idea to get Amira the Kindle. It was not on her Christmas list-she loves it. We were tired of running to Borders weekly to get Mira this & that vampire series books. She has been reading through these books like crazy-and we love that she loves to read now. I had to invest in a charging station for her. She makes us proud-with one B and all the rest in A's.
