Pinterest Crafty

I am one of those victims of Pinterest where I have 9K pins and haven't really done many of them.  Every year at my work christmas party we would spend $1 on each person and it was so fun to see what people came up with, but this year we thought we would do something different.  We did 1 gift this year and spent around $10. I wanted to do something that people would be excited about doing and of course couldn't settle on anything until the night before the party. Typical me, I'm a total procrastinator.  I found this $10 blanket ladder and knew this was what I wanted to do.

here is mine:

I honestly couldn't believe how easy it really was and how adorable it turned out. Go to her blog and check it out, she has step by step.  I can't wait to try some of her other tutorials as well.  She has made it where I am completing some of pins and made me feel crafty.  I will post more DIY's once they are completed.

Family Photos

I think its important to get family photos at least once a year. Or I think you should at least try. My husband, like most men, hate taking photos. Even though he is so photogenic.

So when I informed him that we would be taking family photos this year his response was. What family? Yes dear, you and I are a family, even though we don't have any children, except our 2 kitties, we are still considered a family.  After we took them I informed him this will be occurring every year in the future if I remember to plan it and that 1 hour out of 365 days isn't that bad to sacrifice to make his wife happy.  These were the results and I was quite pleased with the little cooperation and not going far to take them.

He seriously make me laugh so hard all the time.  Even when I am so upset he can some how make me relax and laugh about it.
