Cupcake Goodness!

So today has been great! We had a very yummy, healthy lunch. The kids assisted me in making a 3 color rotini pasta salad and cantaloupe kabobs :) We enjoyed a nice relaxing day today, just hanging out at home. Play-date for tomorrow with some friends is planned at the park and than off to the library. Since we hung out around here today, and I had no eggs, I had to settle for cupcake recipes I would like to make and pictures for inspiration :) While searching I found some yummy and adorable cupcake goodness! Here are some of the things I came across:

Cupcake Treat
this looks scruptious!!
Bakerella's famous cupcake cake pops (these are on the list of to-do's tomorrow)
adorable necklace from etsy shop 26Seven

Baker Charm 
Necklace with Antiqued Muffin Tin and Measuring Spoons
another adorable necklace. this one by etsy shop Sarita Jewelry Box

I KNOW!! Way too adorable for words...

The kids are summoning me for a stuffed pillow-butt competition of who's is bigger. Apparently I am the judge(insert eye rolling smiley here). Oh the stand in's I have to do when hubby is at work.
In other news, the kids and I will be making some cake pops tomorrow and since we have located my camera battery charger, there will be lots of pics!!Stay tuned and have a great night!!

Is it only Tuesday?

Oh my word! Today has been one of those days. You know one of those days you wake up 2 hours before the alarm goes off, WIDE AWAKE... than decide to go back to sleep and when the alarm actually goes off you are so exhausted that you feel you can't even get up??? THAT is where my day began and has continued that way, all day since!! Teething has made for a very grumpy little one and mommy! Not to mention miss Steph has been a bear today as well because she is "too tired to nap." Caleb and Hannah have been at it all day of coarse, nothing out of the ordinary. I tell you though listening to them when they don't know I am listening is very entertaining. One of the many conversations I overheard today that made me giggle, went a little something like this :

Setting: backyard while playing "school" Caleb came in to the game late and wanted to change it all.

Caleb:(to Hannah, about steph (the student)) Ask her what she'd like more a teacher, or..( brief pause) an AVATAR!

Hannah : (to Steph) Which would you like more, a teacher or an avatar?

Steph:(to avoid confrontation) An avatar AND a teacher

Hannah:(very matter of factly to caleb) By the way Caleb , "Your FIRED!"

HAHAHAH ok, maybe you had to be there. Really though, who needs to leave the house when you have entertainment like this? On another note, kids had boring mac and cheese today so no fun bento pic for today. I will leave you with their cute hodgepodge bento from yesterdays lunch.

Hodgepodge Bento lunch

Have a super night all! Gotta make a plan for dinner and cart all the kiddos to the store. Oh the fun that lies ahead for me tonight!!

Oh the Joys of Mommyhood and Summer time!

So here it is Noon and I have already changed 3 diapers and 4 outfits on miss Grace! She has insisted on being a fashion diva today and has decided all of her clothes look much better soaked from the hose in the backyard or covered in juice from her popsicle. Should make for an interesting day. Kids are already starting on how bored they are and that 69 degrees is plenty warm to set up the pool! On another note, I have been stalking all my favorite blogs today and have already planned almost all of my allowance for this month in just a matter of minutes ;) Today's must haves:

Dr.Sears Nibble Tray
Easy Lunchboxes
Zoku Posicle Maker
101 Gourmet Cupcakes in 10 Minutes Cookbook
Cricut Cake

so that is my list so far. My little monsters are beckoning once again and I must whip up some lunch and put one down for a nap. Until I get another free minute...

4th of July and I am starting with a BANG!! Finally! I have had this blog open forever and never used it! We had a fabulous weekend. Finally got to see my husband. He has been at work for weeks, working redonkulous hours! We were all very happy to have him home :)So with all of the none 4th of July festivities available right in our area we stayed home.. all weekend :) It was great. Consisted of board games, movies, food and fun!!! We had lots of family time together and did a tiny bit of cleaning up around the house. Hope everyone had a fun safe weekend. Until next time....
