Ahh...the blogging world...

So I am sitting at my computer..enjoying a cup of Joe....

 browsing  on some blogs that I really like and I am stuck. I always want to join parties and cannot figure out how to do it. It says: Grab a button!! Join our party!!. Well... I would but I don't know how. I am still new at this and am trying to just learn on my own as I go and well....we can all see how that is going..ha!! Anyway...feel free to leave me a comment and give me instruction or maybe you can do a new blog on how to join the party:) Sorry for the boring blog but I really would like to learn how to join parties:) Or at least be involved:) Have a great day!!

I recently stumbled across a blog that has inspired, motivated, and given me that extra little push I needed. Funny how the most random thing can do that to you! This is her blog: http://www.mamalaughlin.com/. Some opf the things that she says..I couldn't have said better myself. SO back to the motivation. I have starting training for a marathin that I am hoping to do in June. If I happen to not be able to do it I will do a half and of course..the Susan G. Komen.

 I also started doing this 30 day Shred. It makes me super sore and fits into my busy schedule! Hopefully I lose some lbs. and inches cause I am sick of being a fatty!!

Hope all of you have been inspired or motivated today!! TaTa

"Big Wig" Party

Hi to All!! Thanks for stopping by. I haven't posted in a while because I have just been so busy. Between having an 8 month old running around, having a "Big Wig Party" and Valentines, I haven't had time to sit and relax. But today is the day so I decided to post:) I just had a birthday and decided to throw myself a party. Not just any party, but a "BIG WIG" party! It was a blast and a lot of people showed up. Here are some pics of how everyone looked:)

                                                              The cupcakes I made:)
                                                            Two of my good friends:)

Finally Finished!!

Well.. He did it! My husband finially finished our bed. I have, for a very long time now, been asking my husband for a nice bed set because we have a Tempur Pedic and I didn't want it to get ruined since it has to be on a flat surface and our bedframe was broke. So right before Thanksgiving, he told me that for Christmas, he was going to make it. I was sooo excited!! 2 months later and a lot of hard work, it is finially finished! To add to it, I had a picture my dear friend brough back from the Dominican and it needed a frame. So, my hubby built a frame for it that matched out bed. Take a look:)

                                               This is it before he had the picture done.    

 This is with the picture, if you notice, the picture still has a bit of orange showing, which I will paint over:)

 Our room is a bit small and the bed is quite big so it was hard to get a good picture
 This is a view of the storage door that he built. It opens on all sides of the bed so I can store things underneath:) Sorry for the spots on the camera lens.
This is a view of just the picture! I absolutely LOVE this pic. I wish I lived here but for now, my bedroom is my destination:)

On another note, my good friend Jen called me the other day asking for some ingredients for one of her recipes. I jumped on her blog and told her then realized... I have all these ingredients as well, I am going to try these. They are called Sour Cream Strawberry Muffins and boy are they good and super easy to make! Here is the recipe: http://recipesthatjenlikes.blogspot.com/2009/07/sour-cream-strawberry-muffins.html. This is the first time me adding in a link. Hope it works! Here is how mine turned out:)
 The ingredients:)
 Ready to bake
And the finished product. I should have filled them a little more but I wasn't sure on how much they would rise. You can definitely fill them generously because they don't rise very much:)

I hope you all ahve a great rest of the day! Thanks for stopping by :)
