Easter Wreath!

Check it out!  I'm pretty proud of myself, I was able to start AND finish this during just one of Eli's naps :)  After making the Christmas deco mesh wreath this one was easy since I already knew what I was doing.  I got all my supplies at Hobby Lobby, loves the speckled eggs!!  

I didn't take pictures step by step but youtube has some great tutorials if you just search for deco mesh wreaths :)

St. Patty's Day Fun

Eli's First St. Patty's Day!  I found him his ADORABLE tie onesie on, you can more great stuff from the seller here:

The kids made some hand print crafts for St. Patrick's Day.  I found this idea on Pinterest and thought it was super cute :)  

 I made GREEN shepard's pie, GREEN queso dip and even my glass of wine was GREEN!!  The kids got a kick out of it, they made their milk green too :)

For the Shepard's Pie: (found on
1 lb lean ground beef
2 cups hot mashed potatoes
