Journal: When we Were Kids

I've decided that since I don't journal or scrapbook
that maybe I should do some memory recording here on my blog.

You may be interested in this or not, I'm mostly doing this for me.

We will start at the beginning:

This is me, Rachael.

Look what I found

I was out thrifting the other day when
I stopped by my friend Lisa's consignment shop.

They had a.....

Wait for it....

Buried alive

Today, I am immersing myself in this.

Scary, I know.
This has gotten out of hand, time to take drastic measures and break out the haz-mat suit.

If I'm not back soon send in reinforcements.

Wish me luck!

Paper Raffia Flowers

Today to church I was wearing lots of clothes on my body and feet
because there was a snow storm this morning.

I looked over at my friend and she had on really cute wedges and manicured toenails.

Yea, I was seething with jealousy.

I came home and I was in the mood for spring.

So I got out a little project that I started last summer,
and I made a bunch of paper raffia flowers.

Wood vs. Carpet

Things of the crafty nature have been slow in coming this week...
Ok thats overstating things, crafts are not happening.

We have too many BIG things and loose ends we are trying to tie up right now.

What did we do today?

Why we picked up 28 boxes of wood flooring for the basement.

*** Update: I totally feel better this morning, cinnamon buns here I come!

Love is in the air today...

Valentines Boxes

Over the years we have made quite a few Valentines boxes.

The boys re-use these year after year.

We have a rubik's cube box, A pizza box, and an aquarium made out of an ice cream bucket.

Facial cleansing mask

Every month or so it seems,
My face breaks out.

You ladies can probably sympathize... I hope.

A friend taught me how this simple mask can help.
It really works.

Will you be mine? #3 - Valentine Bunting

I have not been on top of things with decorating my mantel for Valentines Day.

I know, I know "Gasp! Whats wrong Rachael?"
I have been trying to think of something
thats not too over the top, a little understated, but still fun.

I tend to over do it when I get to decorate with pink.

So I came up with this bunting.

While Mom's Away

On Friday I went out with some girlfriends.
It was fun. We shopped, talked and ate some really yummy chocolate.

While I was having girl time the boys were having boy time.

It's the Little Things

Sometimes the little things are really what makes a house a cozy and comfortable home.

I treated our home to a few things this last week.

A new rug in the kitchen.

How to make a bag - Rachael's way

When we went on our trip the fam gave me a bunch of stuff
to take down to Florida to give to my sister.

Since we fly stand-by we almost never check bags.
We have had many days of lost bags because we ended up taking a different flight.
It's really best that we keep all of our belongings with us.

My carry-on was full of my own stuff, and so was everyone else's carry-on.

So, I needed an extra bag.
I had a few gross reusable grocery bags that I could have used, but they aren't cute.
