Spring Fever

I"ve got it!
After a shopping trip to the Gap today I officially have Spring Fever!!!
And I must add I did my little shopping spree in only 10 minutes!

I would say T has a pretty good start for his Spring wardrobe!
I love dressing my kiddo....
My love for fashion makes dressing T so much fun!

Thank you Gap for not letting me down!

It's my life...I love it!

Do you hear that?!?! It is complete silence! Ahhhhhh...In my house this is rare.
After a productive day I'm snug in bed, Mac in lap, glass of wine on bed side table, my sleeping angel next to me and Bentley by my side. The only thing missing is the hubs who is at work saving the world!

Of course there are lots of other things I could be doing right now. Like conquering what looks like Mount Everest in my laundry room. Picking up the house. At this point you would never know my cleaning fairy was here on Thursday! As there is skull rain boots in my bathroom floor as we speak...sitting next to today's dirty clothes and toothpaste on the counter. Not to worry that will all still be there waiting on me tomorrow.

Oh about T sleeping with me...yes he does. And yes I know he is what. This only gets to take place when Matt is on shift. Yep...that's every 3 days. For now he looks forward to it and soon enough he"ll be to cool for that. So I'm savoring every moment that I can.

Out of the mouth of T...this morning at breakfast. hooked me up!
All it takes is a little butter on his Cinnamon streusel muffin and I'm his Super hero.
More on Super hero's in a bit.

I spent the majority of my day sewing with my Gram. I love that I can just pick my project up...walk thru the back fence and spend the day sewing with Gram. Not to mention I had homemade soup for lunch...oh so yummy.

The crib bedding I'm working on is almost finished...I can see the finish line.
Almost there.
My client's baby was born 3 weeks early...Welcome Baby Memphis !!!
I so love that name!
No worries...Memphis will be sleeping in his rocking round crib in no time.
I can't wait to share picture's of the finished product. Just in alvacodo green, charcoal grey, turquoise and white. It's out of this world cute!

I was thrilled beyond words to hear that T got A's on both his spelling and phonics test today.
As I promised we headed to Main Event for some bowling right after school. We had a blast with Suz, Hoyt and Hannah. Awesome deal...$5 bowling per person unlimited bowling and happy hour appetizer specials. It was a hit! We already scheduled another play date there next week.

Whew...if that wasn't enough in one day.
We got home in just enough time for T to take a quick shower and throw on his PJ's.
I made his dinner to go.
Shoved Benadyrl down his throat. I've administered enough tylenol and benadyrl in the last 5 days to be a drug dealer.
Oh I must have failed to mention T had the Flu last week...very mild but still the Flu.

Off to the school for a FOT meeting. This time of year gets crazy busy a good crazy.
T did his homework during our meeting and was fast asleep before we pulled in the drive way.

I'll post pictures and ideas tomorrow on what I have in store for FOT this year.
Think Super hero's ......

Well my time is expiring as my eyes are getting really heavy.

Off to bed I ago. Another day like today awaits me tomorrow. Just as busy but different agenda.

It's my life...I love it!

Let the cup over flow...

Yes, I drink wine and read my bible! Just not at the same time.

I had a glass of wine in bed the night before. When I woke up the next morning I couldn't resist snapping a picture of this!

I love cooking yummy dinner's for my family.
I wish gourmet was more on my menu but seriously who has that kind of time?!
Not this SAHM.
This taste gourmet but literally takes 30 mins!
That is exactly what my kitchen is screaming!
So enjoy.

Italian Hunter's Soup
I pkg. Italian sausage (12-16oz)

1 jar Cookwell & Co. Two-step Cacciatore Sauce
1 1/2 cup chicken stock
1/2 cup cream
1 can great northern beans, drained
1 small pkg. baby spinach
2 TBS Adam's reserve Egyptian basil

Brown sausage well, breaking up with a spoon. Add wine to deglaze. Allow wine to reduce down to about 2-3 TBS. Add sauce and basil and allow to simmer for 5 minutes. Add stock, beans and cream. Allow to return to simmer. Remove from heat and add spinach.
