Future day

This week is kids Kamp at church. Kids Kamp is a performing arts camp. Yesterday was future day. As you can see you were to dress up in something you wanted to be when you grow up!

Just for the record I did not dress up. But it did make me think... Am I what I wanted to be... Do I have regrets.... Am I happy with who I am.... What would I change?

As today is my 25th birthday, I would have to say I am extremely pleased with where my life is. I have an amazing hubbie that loves me a ton, I get to work at a place filled with love, grace, and prayers. I have 3 amazing families and really great close friends that I do not know what I would do without! I'm truly thankful for all of the many blessings the Lord has given me!

What about you? What do you want to be when you grow up?

Black and White Delight

For those of you who know me pretty well, you know that I love the color orange, but that I also really love black and white things. I went black and white crazy in high school. I decorated my whole room in purely black and white pics. I love modern and contemporary things. Anything that is remotely out of the ordinary or different I will always like it. Anything that is not affordable- I love!
If I had it my way, which would seriously be impractical, my house would be extremely modern, with the low couches and beds, coffee tables etc, along with crazy art work and statues. And lots of clean lines!
So the other day I came across this blog- Can you imagine how pumped I was?
Everything they put on this blog are black and white things for sale. I was immediately in love! It also gives you great decorating ideas.

While I was looking at this blog the other day, I found this black and white bedding that I really liked. If you have ever been to my house, you know that I have a black, twin size daybed up in one of my extra bedrooms.


Its a super cute bed, just not so much a fan of the bedding. I got this bed from I.O. metro at their tent sale last year. My mom thought I was crazy for wanting a daybed, but it was the only size that would fit in one of my upstairs bedrooms. So I saw this bed several months earlier and LOVED it. Except the price tag was a whopping $900. The bargain shopper I am could not ever stomach paying that price.
My mom calls me from this amazing tent sale, and sh told me the bed was on sale for....... drum roll please- $150! Yep that's right, but don't think that's what I paid- because they thought they were missing a piece I actually got it for $100.00! Now that is a steal! And think how great of "BIG" bed that will make for a kid SOMEDAY!

All that to say, I really wanted some black and white bedding to go on it because 1- it would look cool and 2- I love black and white and 3- Its modern!
I have now looked for almost 1 year for twin size black and white bedding.
The other day while browsing:

I found this:

What do you think? It was a bed in a bag from for 75% off. I got the whole ensemble for $22.00 which included my tax and shipping! Yep that's right, the bed and bedding cost a grand total of $122.00!
That makes me excited! I love deals!

So lets compare 1 more time:

Thoughts? I know I have to add some more pillows, but should I throw in a color? Oh and where it looks faded- its actually gray. It just doesn't show up that well in the picture.

Would you just look at that yumminess!

Chubby cheeks are so tasty!

Although Sawyer is very yummy, I was actually going to tell you about this website I found. It is It has absolutely nothing to do with babies or food. It is an online bookmarking website. So all of those favorites you have listed under that little yellow star on the left hand side of your screen and all of those many favorite blogs you spend hours of your time reading, you can now organize them on this handy dandy website!
See its really no fun when your favorites quit working {and I would know because mine quit 2 months ago}, because then you have no idea who has updated and you seriously do not want to search through tons of blogs to see who has updated or not. Therefore, back to my point, this Delicious website allows you to add all of your favorite website, blogs, and feeds all in one place. You can check it from any place/computer and bookmark any website that you can go to. It also allows you to tag each website so they be really neat and organized!

So go try you some deliciousness in your life, whether you choose a baby, food, or website! Its all yummy!
