More from the photo shoot

My friend Melissa continues to send me more pictures
from the photo shoot the other day.
I seriously cannot go back to my lame,basic digital camera! I just can't.
Hmmm...I think I know what I want for my birthday!
So, I thought I would share some more of these precious photos.
Major kudos to Melissa Smith for taking these. She has such a great eye!
I only wish all my kid's had been present for this photo shoot. Dang school!
We will have to go back out....soon!

*+* Sweet Ideas *+*

I have been seeing so many cute Valentine treat ideas!
I have so many ideas and recipes I want to try.
And when I find cute ideas, I want to share...

{heart shaped peeps dipped in chocolate/add a stick}

{ candy hearts and marshmellows}

Aren't these so super cute?!
They sorta look like Brownie Pops but their made with Vanilla Wafers.
 I haven't tried them yet,.. but I am going to try this idea with the kids next month;


• 15 caramel squares

• 32 vanilla wafers

• 16 lollipop sticks

• 1 cup semisweet- or milk-chocolate chips

• Valentine sprinkles


1. Melt unwrapped caramels in a microwave according to package directions. Working quickly, spoon small dollops of caramel onto 16 wafers. Place a lollipop stick in center, and top each with another wafer to make a cookie sandwich.

2. Melt chocolate chips according to package directions. Dunk each cookie sandwich in chocolate and shake to remove excess. Top lollipops with sprinkles and place onto wax-paper-lined baking sheet. Chill for 5 to 10 minutes or until firm.

I KNOW I will be finding more cute ideas/recipes...
check back!

*+* Birthday Fun ....part 1 *+*

Happy Birthday pretty girl!
Here are a couple of pictures from this morning...


Yesterday, we met my parents in Charlotte, North Carolina. 
Buca di Beppo is one of our favorite restraunts from Cali
and pretty much a family tradition when it comes to birthday celebrations.
We are very lucky to have one close by.

We ate some delicious margherita pizza, baked ravioli,salad and bread and.... was good.

I need to add some pictures from today and tonight when we celebrate some more...
Check back soon!
