I love, love, love having parties and I'd been wanting an excuse to use some of my vintage dishes so I decided on a Spring Brunch for some girls in my ward (who are also some of my best friends!) We enjoyed cinnamon rolls, banana coconut walnut muffins, breakfast quiche, yogurt parfaits, and strawberry pomegranate soup. It was the perfect weather and the perfect company. I think I will make this an annual tradition.

Food Storage

It was a sad, sad day last week when I decided to turn my office/craft room into our new food storage room. I think it was a good decision though. Now everything can be in one spot, it'll make rotating easier, and there's room to grow.

My new work space- it's a little tight, but I think it will do!

One of these things...

Clara's 5 today! We celebrated last night at the park with family. We had hot dogs for dinner (Clara's request) and Candice made an Ariel cake (also a request). Her present from Derek and I was a new puppy (Shadow died a few weeks ago). I don't think she realizes yet that he won't be a puppy forever, but for now she's having so much fun with him. The kids decided to name him Prince. Thanks to everyone who helped make her day so special! Happy Birthday Clara! Love you lots!

Before and After

It was time for a re-do on the girls' room. Janie was ready for a twin bed and I had to do some re-arranging to accommodate the furniture, but I'm very pleased with the result.

And After:
