I like clean floors and today in my quest for clean floors I did this.

I had not too long ago made some re-usable pads for my swiffer wet jet and just the other day found a way to refill the bottle so I don't have to buy those expensive refills. Now its broke!  That is a little frustrating.  I haven't decided if I am going to replace it or not.  I love the traditional wet mop, but unfortunately my laminate floors can't handle wet mopping. Oh, well.

Five Minute Friday: On Forgetting

Ready for another Five Minute Friday?  You can read the rules and her latest post at The Gypsy Mama.

Here we go:

Forgetting that is a perfect topic for me.  Now what was I going to say?

Sea what I mean.  Okay all kidding aside. Seriously sometimes I think I have lost my mind.  Take grocery shopping for instance I make a list, I study my list and I still forget something.  Without fail I will forget at least one item when I do my shopping this weekend.  I can't remember a time I haven't had to make a second or third trip to the store.  Even when going on a trip, I make lists and I check them twice, but it never fails after we are a good 2 hours down the road I will remember what it was that I didn't know I forgot.  This bothers me sometimes.  I just wonder if I am this bad now with lists what will I be like when I am old.  My Nana doesn't know who I am anymore.  Sure I could tell her my name and remind her that I am her granddaughter and which of her children I belong to, but it is not the same Nana that I grew up loving.  I don't want to forget who I am, who my children are, my husband or any of that.  One of my prayers is that I will have a sharp mind until the end.
There are good things about forgetting though.  Forgive and forget.  This doesn't mean we are to be foolish and keep getting duped because we 'forgot'.  It simply means that when we forgive someone we don't hold it over there head, keep bringing it up or use it against them.  I am glad that Christ forgave me and put my sins as far as the East is from the West, never to remember them anymore.

Times up.

Another silhouette giveaway!

I Won!

During my families visit I won a giveaway from Little Darling Designs. 
I won $10 to spend in her etsy store.  I picked a cute little change purse and a flower clip for Princess.  Had I known the flower clip was going to be such a hit I would have got more.  Princess can be a little picky when it comes to hair things.  Most of the time she would just leave her hair down, but ever since receiving this clip in the mail she has been wearing it.

A Silhouette Giveaway

I just can't resist a Silhouette giveaway.  It is my dream to one day win one.  Check out the giveaway over at Tatertots and Jello.

A Birthday and Family Fun!

Oh, my it has been a while.  We have been very busy visiting with my small family (compared to the Duggars that is).  For those who may not know I am the oldest of 10.  My mom, 5 sisters, 3 of my brothers, a brother-in-law, 3 nephews and a niece were visiting, some for part of 2 weeks, some for all of 2 weeks and some a little longer.  We had a fun time as you can see from the pictures that follow.

This is Roochie's Birthday Outfit.  He loves the monsters and so do I.

 Uncles, Aunt, Cousins and Sister = Lots of Fun.
 I just love that smile!
 Roochie went with a blueberry cake with cream cheese frosting instead of cupcakes.
 Aunt Lissa and Uncle Dodo putting together the race track.

 I tried to keep him, but his parent's just couldn't part with him.  I don't blame them one bit.
This is only part of the peach pickin' group.

Peach picking goes by super fast with a group as large as we had.  It took us all of 5 minutes to pick $30 dollars worth of peaches. We actually would have been done in 2, but we spent 3 minutes getting the word out that we were done. ha ha!  Fresh peaches make the best cobbler and ice cream.  The funny thing is I never cared for peach cobbler growing up and now I love it.  We made 2 9x13 cobblers, an 8x8 gluten free cobbler and a gallon of peach ice cream.
All the pictures in this post remind me of this song.
Have a happy week!
