Weekend wrap up!

Our weekend was busy and fun!  We started out the weekend at Melany's for Pillows and Pizza!   It was a fun girls night in! 
Here are some pictures from the night.  I made-OK Melany made me :) two pillows for our couch. 

Saturday we just hung out at home and then Saturday night Graig and I went to a dinner for our work.  It was fun to get dressed up and go out but I didn't take a single picture!

Sunday Brock was in a basketball tournament so we watched his games.  We went out for breakfast after his first game.  Here he is with his friend Willie. 

After a long day of basketball Brock's teams won the tournament!  He he is with his friend Jordan.  For winning they got drawstring backpacks. 

Last night was the season premiere of Mad Man my absolute favorite TV show!  It hasn't been on for 17 months so I was SO excited to watch the first new episode of the season!

Touches of spring!

It has been SO nice here lately!  The temps have been in the 70's which is unheard of at this time of the year for upstate NY.  I have been decluttering and organizing using this book that I got last fall.  It has so many great tips and ideas.  I am doing just a little bit each day so I don't get overwhelmed.  So far I have worked in our bedroom, kitchen and basement!  It feels SO good to get organized!

I added this little owl plate I got at TJ Maxx to the wall in our living room. 

I also added some touches of spring to the table in our living room. 
Here is a close up.  My plants love it on this table since they get so much natural light.  The candle is pink tulip from Bath and Body Works.  The plate is from TJ Maxx.
A few weeks ago I went to Homegoods and got these bird canvases.  I LOVE them!  I put them in our dining room and I think they look so spring-y and fun.

Happy Wednesday!

Ava's 10th Birthday!!

Yesterday we celebrated Ava's 10th birthday!  She is growing up SO fast!  She wanted two things for her birthday
1.  A puppy
2.  A perm (can you believe that?!?)

A few weeks ago she got a puppy- a cockapoo that we named Lily.
Last night we had a cookout and ice cream cake for her birthday!  Grandma Jan and my friend Sabrina and her family came to help us celebrate!

The birthday girl was tired and this is the face she made every time I tried to take her picture.
Here is Sabrina and Graig patiently waiting for the ice cream cake!
I forgot to get  candles for Ava's cake. The only # I had was 7 so Sabrina added three fingers to make 10!
Here is sweet Eliza taking a little break from eating her cake. 
Ava and Eliza were both so tired right after the cake they went and snuggled up in the chair.

Tonight after school I am taking Ava to get a perm.  The poor thing has wanted curly hair forever and she is constantly trying curlers and curling irons in her hair to get it to curl.  I am taking her where I get my hair cut so I'm sure they will do a good job.  I will post pictures soon!

Snow storm!

Yesterday and today our little town was hit with a snow storm.  It was the largest one of this super warm winter.  Brock and Ava had a snow day today and I was glad because Ava's had the touch of the stomach bug and she was able to just relax and rest. 

This morning my friend Sabrina texted me to asked me to watch Eliza for a little bit because she had an appointment.  While we were there Ava laid down and they watched Toy Story 3.  That is such a sweet movie!

Sabrina got these baskets at the Dollar Tree we added some vinyl letters.  I think they are adorable!

We also made this cute wreath.  Ok really Sabrina made most of the wreath for me.  I love the spring colors!

Another thing that I love about spring are the fabulous scents at Bath and Body Works!  This one is my favorite!

I am thankful for our relaxing snow day and I'm looking forward to the SPRING!
