happy pie

last night for relief society meeting,
there was a cute pie demonstration.

i learned a few tricks & made an apple today.

definitely not the prettiest pie ever
{i need to work on my edges}

but it sure tasted yummy &
i accomplished something i've never done before! ♥

happy quote

"the lord doesn’t care at all if we spend our days working in marble halls or stable stalls. he knows where we are, no matter how humble our circumstances. he will use—in his own way and for his holy purposes—those who incline their hearts to him." -uchtdorf

happy families

the munchkin wanted to "make her toys into families" we did.

i learned 2 things:

1. i have the funnest job - playing toys with a 3 year old is hilarious.

2. we might go to mcdonalds a lot. there's a whole lotta chicken-nug kids meals represented in that pile. ;)

happy afternoon

interesting how a pretty & new $9 ironing board cover
can completely change my outlook on ironing.

suddenly it's more fun.

especially while watching an old favorite.

happy feeling

nothing sweeter than an [overdue] freshly mopped floor before bedtime.
how blessed it shall be to wake up to that sight. :)

this was my soundtrack while mopping [cinderella style] tonight.
oh, how i needed those words, once again.

so very grateful for modern day revelation &
that tomorrow will bring a fresh floor & a fresh slate.

happy bandaids

they keep her busy like nothing else does.

in fact, a box of bandaids is what got her through
the last leg of our recent cali roadtrip.

i know someday i'm going to miss picking up those wrappers everywhere...

happy mullet

remember the time this little stinker decided
to cut her own mullet while i was at work?
{ya, me too.}

i shed a few tears &
aunt barbie worked her magic & was able to save some length...

now we wait for some of the crazy bang layers to grow out,
and laugh hysterically that the inevitable finally happened...
