Glitter Graphic Text -
This year for Rebekah's 2nd Birthday we are having a BIG GIVE Birthday Bash. I have "adopted" a family in the area who could use some help. They have 4 young children, and we are trying to collect toys, gift cards, grocery store gift cards, anything that you feel compelled to give. I have built registries online so if you are across the country or even in a different one, there is an opportunity to give. I would like to rally to support this family with as big an impact as possible and if you would like to be part of it please let me know. The party is scheduled for May 17 so that is plenty of time to GIVE BIG!!! Thanks Everyone for considering this!

Plumbing: A Lesson I Didn't Want to Learn

Aren't kids wonderful? Especially those free spirited, creative, hands on kids? We have been in our house less than a month and have already broke it in - MAJOR!! I walked into our master bath and noticed the toilet wasn't flushing all that great. That happens sometimes, especially with a newly potty-trained 3 year old who uses way too much toilet paper. So I plunged and noticed that 2 hot rollers came up to the surface. HOT ROLLERS?! IN THE TOILET?! I looked under the sink where I keep them and noticed there were some missing and panicked! I plunged like crazy, bought a toilet snake, but nothing worked. I called my Dad and tried to convince him that flying from AZ to VA would be cheaper than me paying a plumber, he didn't agree. Instead he told me how to take apart the toilet. So I did. I disconnected it, flipped it upside down, stuck my hand up the bottom (NOT my favorite part) and discovered not 1, not 2, but......7 hot rollers!!! She flushed 9 hot rollers!!! So now I am accomplished plumber and honestly I haven't felt that proud of myself for a long time! My husband was lucky that he works crazy hours and is also going to school, leaving me to figure stuff out for myself! But remember, if you need toilet help, let me know...I am prepared!

Cakes by Carrie

I don't think I have ever posted about this.  I am an aspiring cake decorator/party planner.  I have been making cakes for about 6 months now and my buisness is growing.  I am also making diaper cakes for baby showers and tutus!  I have to have a creative outlet!!! So here are some pictures of my creations.  Enjoy!

Finally Moved In

We are finally in our new house.  There are still a few boxes but at least we can live our day to day without having to dig through a box.  I just got internet today and I was going through MAJOR withdrawls.  I didn't realize how much I depend on it!!  So if it ever warms up enough for me to want to be outside, I am going to take pictures of my neighberhood and the house, etc.  I am so happy to have more space.  A 2 bedroom apartment was getting cramped and now we have 3 levels!! Heaven!
