Thanksgiving fun and Black Friday deals

I have to say that one of my most favorite things to do is spend time with my mom and sisters!! We always have lots of good laughs and great memories! Yesterday was no exception. The sweet memories started with finding the boys sleeping together in Preston's bed with their favorite bedtime "jammies".We have an hour drive out to my mom's house, but the kids were pretty good. They past time by playing the ABC game:) Poor Carmen usually gets carsick on the way, but she had one of the "good seats". Ava did well too:)

Our family is more than half of the party!! Hehe:) From left to right are my sisters Brenna, Melissa and Stacy. Good times:)

Hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with all of your loved ones!

Getting back

I am trying to get back into the blogging thing. It is a challenge!!! As many of you know I have 5 children. My oldest is 14, so she doesn't really need me to be doing things for her, but they all need something from me and that is my time. I struggle with fitting everything into my day for sure! More and more I am realizing that I need to connect with other bloggers on a higher level than just stopping in now and then. This will be a small start for me.

Have you visited Casey Wiegand's blog?? She is the cutest not mention her beautiful family!! She is hosting a blog fest to meet new people:)

Introduce yourself and link up to the other blogs:))

Put your shop links, Facebook, etsy, twitter, whatever you have, stick the links in your blog:)

Carmen, just home from school, only to run off to Volleyball practice! This day was such a crabby morning for me. My 3 youngest kids (4, 6 and 9), cleaned the downstairs for me while I was trying to relax in the bath. I am talking vacuuming, folding blankets, picking up toys. It was so great, I cried:)Going shopping! With her.For this Halloween costume:)

Spending everyday with this little guy while his siblings are at school:)

I am hooking up with Lindsey again for WIWW!
I don't think I have ever taken so many pictures of myself:/ My regular camera is broken so I have been using my iphone. Again I am all over the house in these pictures trying to get a good one. Can you settle for ok? I have 2 1/2 days for you this week:)Our downstairs bathroom has the best lighting. But, it is only waist up. This is the 1/2 day. I was in a hurry this day. Friday. They are always super busy. Running around all day! I tried to click a few, but these 2 are as good as it gets.
Boyfriend Blazer-Maurices
Jeans-Victoria's Secret
Cowboy Boots-Victoria's Secret

Earrings- not sure:/Instagram from that day. I was rushing to the grocery store. YUCK!
Ok, now that I am looking at the pictures I have, this day is not that great for pics either:/ This outfit was for shopping with my daughter Carmen and meeting up with my mom, sister Melissa, sister Stacy and her daughter Zhaina:) Such a FUN day!!!
These shoes are so comfortable. My plan was to wear them for the purpose of having something easy to slip on and off so I could try on some boots. Haha, Carmen was the one who got all the fun stuff that day.
I so wish I would have taken a better picture of the white shirt. Super cute.

Again Boyfriend Blazer- Maurices

Jeans-Victoria's Secret




Ring-not sure Instagram from that day:)
The reason for the shopping? Who needs a reason, but I actually had one:) Carmen was attending a Halloween party that night so we had to go buy some fun little items for her 80's costume!
It was so much fun putting this outfit together!!! She looked "rad!":))
For Monday I put this Fall outfit together:) Another room, trying hard to get a good one:/ (Don't mind the messy room)
Fun boots, but they have heals and I have been on the lookout for the perfect boot. I am having a hard time making a choice. I was so tired this day. Monday. My eyes would not stop watering. Not looking so hot:/

Love these earrings that my sister Melissa brought back from Greece!! LOVE!


Jeans-Victoria's Secret

Tank Tops-Target (you will probably see these in most of my outfits, I have tons)

Boots-Victoria's Secret (like 10 yrs ago)


Instagram from that day.

I am looking forward to going through all the outfits on Lindsey's blog. Hope you join me:)

Corrina's room

Corrina's room has been slow going, but I think we are almost there:) It used to be our room and then my studio and for some reason we painted it this UGLY dark plumish color. We switched all the rooms around about 2 yrs ago when I decided I needed more room for my growing business.

Corrina has wanted her room painted ever since and we finally decided just to do it. She helped a little bit.
Last weekend I had Matt hang some things for her and I then "decorated" them. Lots of family photos and a few scrapbooks I have made for her over the years. Baskets that I am sure will stay empty because that is way she rolls:/ An adorable clock from my sister Stacy that she brought back home from Greece:) Unfortunately it is broken, but can't throw it away. Fun little buckets hanging from hooks that are supposed to be used to put things in. The now have clothes hanging over them instead. She magnetic and peg boards are from Pottery Barn. We have had them sitting in a closet for like 4 yrs. These are also filled with love notes, pictures and foolishness already. The flag banner was made by me like 3 yrs ago. We strung it across her room. So cute!Her fun curtain:) Her bedspread matches, but she something else on there at the time. She hates this pic of her so here is a cuter one:)This one is from the summer, she is so hard to take a picture of, but she will take 8 million of herself.
I wish you all a very Happy Friday and a great weekend:)

Remember me???:))

It has been a few months, but I am going to try and be better at this blogging thing:) I am taking a huge step and am joining Lindsey over at The Pleated Poppy for WIWW. If you know me, you know that I hate having my picture taken. I am trying really hard to get over it and realize that I will always feel like I need to loose weight. Hey, I am a mother of 5 children and my body will never look the way it did before them. Not sure I would want it to, but a thinner me, I would take. So, here it is. (Don't get excited, I only I have one day to show you. Baby steps;))

First let me say that I am sorry for the bad pics. I used my iphone and took them all over the house to try and get a few good ones.

Jacket-The Buckle

Pencil Jeans-Victoria's Secret

Cowboy boots-Victoria's Secret

Grey and Purple tank tops-Target


A little bit better picture of the jacket. I really love this jacket. I think I have had it for like 10 yrs!!

I know this picture is pretty far away, but a side view of the outfit.

Yesterday's instagram.

So there you have it:) I have tried to put up the cute little button for WIWW, but computers are not my thing. So here is the link to Lindsey's blog.

I hope to see some of you over there!!! Happy Wednesday!
