spring wreath

I was blog hopping and found this awesome wreath  at  natsprat. Mine doesnt look as amazing as hers, but I like it. I used an infant bath towel and fabric scraps. This cost me $0, I used only things I had on hand.
 What do you think?

catching up

Hello there. Sorry I have not posted in a few days. Well  in th epast few days there was St. Patties Day
We didn't really do anything because Jeff worked but I made corned beef with red potatoes and carrots. A few days later my honey took me to Joanns ( yep, I am one lucky lady) and  he found this adorable hat and we had to take Seans picture.
 I tried a new recipe this week
Chilli with black beans. Oh it was yummy

So I used 2 cans of red beans and one can of black beans, tomatoe sauce, water white pepper and a store bought chilli mix, I also added some frozen bell peppers. mmmm mmmm mmm was that good!

 I am making a Dress for our oldest daughter useing Mccalls  M6271, It is taking me longer then expected because I am still figureing out my new machine. I will post pics of it soon  :)

Dress a girl around the world sew along

I  found this on another blog, and am really touched. This is an amazing charity and I hope to be able to join.

fish, weight loss etc...

Hi, sorry I was not online for a few days, our computer was malfunctioning, but Jeff fixed it. Oh how I love that man  :)

Well on monday we took the kids to the The Florida Aquarium in Tampa. The kids loved it and so did we. There were a few melt downs with out their naps, but over all was a great day
I would totally reccomend this Aquarium.

Ever since My fourth child was born I have been saying that I want to loose this extra weight. Currently I am 160 ish,lol. I want to get down to 125 and be toned and more healthy. I watch the biggest loser alot and love the tips and excersizes that I pick up while watching. Last night I watched a few episodes and they were talking about pre cutting and preparing snacks ahead fo time so you arent tempted to do fast food or gorge on a bag of potatoe chips. Today I went and bought tons fo fresh veggies and low fat snacks like  60 calorie Jello pudding, what a sweet low fat treat!
 I have already pre cut and bagged green peppers, bagged baby carrots, squash and zucchini. I also joined a free food tracking website free food tracker.
 I really hope to be able to fit in my clothes again, I dont have much that  I can go out in public in anymore, Yikes.

 Right now I am cleaning the house and making beds to prepare for us getting home late and needing everything clean and ready so we can all just get into bed when we get home at night. The babies are watching Dora, oh how I am sick of Dora, but not as much as Barney.
 This week I made a beautiful St. Patricks day top for Brianne, and am making a polka dot top  for her too. I am hopeing She can wear it to the aquarium.
 This week I SCORED at CVS. I spent less then $20  and saved more then $30 with sales and coupons. I love coupons. Well bye for now.
