Welcome to my little world!

This is just a little hodge podge of my life, some bits & pieces of me.:)

Happy National Scrapbook Day & Cinco de Mayo!

Another week has flown by. We are still waiting on the grandbaby to be born. 

I decided to play around with the new blogger layout/templates and boy did I get this page in a mess last night! Still don't know how I got it straightened out. I sometimes don't know why all these entities have to change things but hopefully I will get used to it in time, I did like the way my previous blog page was set up and this one is similar, I should've left well enough alone I guess. 
The photo at the top was taken by my daughter in the fields surrounding her house, so beautiful!
Rick got the shower tiles up and next he will have to apply the grout, then we can shower in there! It looks amazing so far, I just love it. I hope I can talk him into working on the guest bathroom in the near future. 

I have been plugging along on Mockingjay (Hunger Games book 3), I think I am liking the way it's going now, I'm not even half way through it though, it's been a busy week and I try to read at night and then I get sleepy and don't get very far!

I haven't done any scrapbooking this week, as I said it's been a busy week but I am going to go in a while and start working on some Mother's Day cards and maybe a layout. I mean it is National Scrapbook Day! I must do something scrappy!

For Cinco de Mayo I meant to make something Mexican in the crock pot today BUT the new recipe I meant to try has diced tomatoes or Rotel which I had planned to use but I have neither! I can't believe it! I was at Wal-Mart yesterday and could've picked some up. I must stock up on Rotel!

I am planning on baking something sweet today too. I found a recipe on Pinterest for Pumpkin Blondies and also Cinnamon Chex Mix, I plan to make both. I may make another recipe I found on Pinterest, I made it last week and the family really likes it, Rick ate several pieces and I took some to Lori and she liked it and has been feeding it to Kique for breakfast. I have just enough buttermilk to make another loaf so probably will do that too!

Tonight is a SUPERMOON so maybe that will trigger my dauther-in-law into labor! We shall see.:)
