This little lady came with me for my run/walk tonight. I had to change things up to accommodate her, as she wanted to run to the Co-Op to get ice cream and then walk back so it wasn't as I would've done it on my own but it was worth it to spend that special time with her. PS: only she got ice cream. I refrained!

Joelle and her friend did some baking tonight for a bake sale project they are doing at school next week. Not the greatest timing as I am also trying to prepare for a baby shower I am hosting tomorrow but it is what it is!

This little miss went with her dad to her auntie's farm for a work weekend. The brand new kitties will have gotten a lot of love from her!

It was the perfect evening for a walk...and a mini photo shoot in the sun flare.

Les and I were asked by our dear friends to pray for them and their new baby boy at their parent-child dedication in church this morning. Neither of us could get through our prayers without's safe to say I was a sobbing mess!

Why do all of my clothes end up on the "not for me" hook?

One of the most important things about making carrot cake is to not skimp on the carrots.  Or the cream cheese icing of course!

I promise I dust my piano often...but apparently I forget about dusting the bottom of it.

The one where I accidentally left the house without earrings and I felt like I wasn't entirely dressed. The last time this happened I actually stopped at Walmart to buy a new pair of earrings before work.  Today, however, I only realized it after I had already gotten to work. (And ignore my red hands)

6 long days of a brutal cold (with no end in sight) and a day with a splitting headache means an extra early bedtime for me...and a boring clock picture.

Aaaand more decorating details came together for tonight's baby shower.  It's amazing how much times goes into "simple" decorations.

I spent some time this afternoon getting some things ready for a joint baby shower our church is having for 2 sweet little babes.

The weather this evening turned into a bit of an April fool's joke...but it backfired at our house since it made the girls' time on the trampoline even more fun!
