You MUST Chase Your Dreams, For Your Dreams Will Not Chase You

I think I may be in love...

I found her at the local habitat for humanity restore
and I'm currently in the processing of trying to convince my husband this is our new buffet
I can already see her with distressed black paint
some elegant black & white contact paper in her drawers
and some very cool new knobs
a handmade runner on top
and some other decorations that are still brewing...
Oh I so hope I can bring her home

...and the FREE dresser I forgot to take pictures that has sooo much potential!
Seriously how can I turn down free!!

Coffe Filters - Really!!

Okay so I've seen this in a few different places, but I absolutely loved the one at thelittlebrownhouse
I decided to try some food coloring to see if I could get the color I wanted
which by the way I wish I had taken some pictures of my hands when I was done
I looked like I had stuck my hands in a port a potty (Scott thought this was hilarious)
Anyway I love the way they turned out!
I still cannot get over the fact that this was made from coffee filters and food coloring
Lilly has already requested one for her room
In pink of course

Oh and the best part - I put them together sitting on the couch watching TV
crafting and relaxing at the same time - my kind of night!

Santa, Reindeer & Cookies

Our first Christmas adventure of 2010

decorating our own cookies
Lilly made sure her's had extra sugar

Then we got to see Santa's reindeer and pet them

Santa arriving on the fire truck, which Lilly thought was really cool
and of course scared the crap out of Nolee

Lilly was SO excited to see Santa
she could hardly stay still in line
and once it was our turn, nothing
not a peep and she didn't want to go in

Nolee was fine until she turned around and realized someone with a Beard & Hat was holding her
not sure why but she has a very big aversion to both

All in all it was a fun filled day and both the girls had a great time

Happy Monday

Had a fun filled weekend that passed by way too quickly
Started some xmas shopping
Started some xmas sewing
Had an adult night with friends
Lazed around in our pjs Sunday morning
Had Sunday lunch at Nana's
Went trick or treating with the cutest pirate and bumblebee I've ever seen
The pirate did an awesome job of knocking on all the doors
And saying "Trick or Treat"
Followed by "Argghhh Matey"
There was even a "walk the plank" thrown in there a couple of times
Forget to take ANY pictures of the girls in their costumes - doh!
Combined all our loot and sampled our favorites
All in all a great weekend :).
