I'm sorry, why did we not have this when I was little? Get a big enough backyard @Hillary Clayburgh, this is happening
Mayor McCheese Plastic Hand Puppet (we didn't have Happy Meals when I was little but we did get these and they were fun)
I think when I curl my hair it gets big enough...but why not make it a little bigger :)
I quote this every chance I get! Which is why my family hates it when we have potatoes for dinner....
We have always said if our backyard was big enough we would build a skate ramp in it.
At an airport I overheard a father and daughter in their last moments together. They had announced her plane’s departure and standing near the door, he said to his daughter, “I love you, I wish you enough.”She said, “Daddy, our life together has been more than enough. Your love is all I ever needed. I wish you enough, too, Daddy.” They kissed good-bye and she left.He walked over toward the window where I was seated. Standing there I could see he wanted and needed to cry. I tried not to intrude on his privacy, but he welcomed me in by asking, “Did you ever say good-bye to someone knowing it would be forever?” “Yes, I have,” I replied. Saying that brought back memories I had of expressing my love and appreciation for all my Dad had done for me. Recognizing that his days were limited, I took the time to tell him face to face how much he meant to me. So I knew what this man was experiencing. “Forgive me for asking, but why is this a forever good-bye?” I asked. “I am old and she lives much too far away. I have challenges ahead and the reality is, her next trip back will be for my funeral, ” he said. “When you were saying good-bye I heard you say, ‘I wish you enough.’ May I ask what that means?” He began to smile. “That’s a wish that has been handed down from other generations. My parents used to say it to everyone.” He paused for a moment and looking up as if trying to remember it in detail, he smiled even more. “When we said ‘I wish you enough,’ we were wanting the other person to have a life filled with enough good things to sustain them,” he continued and then turning toward me he shared the following as if he were reciting it from memory. “I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright. I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more. I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive. I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger. I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting. I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess. I wish enough “Hello’s” to get you through the final “Good-bye.” He then began to sob and walked away. Author Unknown
Cedar Pergola Swing Bed. This is gorgeous! If only I could get a backyard big enough to include this :)
Making a pizza oven ... why I may have a tiny house but having a BIG backyard is worth it!
X-Ray Craft I drew a skeleton with white crayon on white card stock during "Xx" week, because all there is to talk about is x-rays and xylophones. Anyhow, I did 22 of those (OW!), then we had the kids do watercolors. Ours struggled a bit with the right ratio of water--too much and the color wasn't bright enough, to little and it covered up the crayon. But it was very cute to hear them get excited when they could see their bones!
I'm in love. When we have a home with backyard, I swear I will make one like this for my girls. #playhouse
a HUGE 3 story slide to go from floor to floor...why did my Dad build a spiral staircase when we could have had THIS?
If I can't get a house big enough to be able to have the library from Beauty and The Beast, then something similar to this will do :)
How to build a water and food storage shelf. For when I have my home that's big enough for this.
Projects to Do
I feel sorry for my little girl if I ever have because she will probably get dressed like this for random pictures!
knitted baby sandals! oh i just have to get these when i have little ones! :)
And I love this little nook though we have nowhere near enough space to accommodate it.
And this is why I'm still awake at 12:03 a.m. when I have to get up early in the morning.

"Why do women want to dress like men when they're fortunate enough to be women? Why lose our femininity, which is one of our greatest charms? We get much more accomplished by being charming than we would by flaunting around in pants and smoking. I'm very fond of men. I think they're wonderful creatures. But I don't want to look like one." --Tasha Tudor The Private World of Tasha Tudor
Oh my heavens why did we not think of this before I got married?! It would have made things so much easier, and I probably would have mailed out the thank you's in time too!
I don't even remember why pogs were so much fun when we were little but I used to have hundreds of these. 90's kids were so much more simple than kids now-a-days.
I dont know why i think its so cute for little girls to be dressed in ruffles have big headbands and pearls on... but it is just so adorable.
oh so funny
Tone-on-tone Wall Striping: If you have some paint leftovers, why not use them up for painting stripes? That's exactly what I did. We recently remodeled our powder room, and I was
random things i love
This is "a little self-assessment flip chart. I have made one for each student and it will sit on the corner of their desk. It is small enough that it won’t be embarrassing for the student but it’s big enough that I can see at a glance who is having trouble with the topic and who is doing fine..I hate nothing more than to have a student get skipped over in daily work time because they seem to be getting the work but then a test/assessment shows they really don’t know what they’re doing."
