Getting to know me- Easter Edition







A few days ago I came across this blog and love it! She holds a linky party each sunday all about getting to know each other. I think this is a fantastic idea! So I will be participating each week. I hope you will join in so I can get to know more about you too.

Also, I wanted to add that this week the world has lost an amazing lady. I met this wonderful lady on one of the forums I am apart of. She had cancer and was very ill, but had the best attitude of any person I've ever met. She will be greatly missed

1. Showers or baths?
Definitely showers, I can’t even remember the last time I took a bath. I very much dislike the “raisin” effect you get when taking a bath!

2. Do you have any crazy urges? OHH yes! All of a sudden I will want to craft something right now. Or I haven’t like tuna in years and I will want it, and it can’t wait.. I want it NOW! lol

3. What is one thing we don't know about you? I’m very shy. I don’t usually talk to people. I keep to myself mostly.

4. Exercise..love it or hate it? Hate to start but when I get into it I love it.

5. Do you think you have a good body image? No not really :D we’ll leave it at that!

6. Flour or corn tortillas? Flour, all the way. When I was younger my dad brought home fish tacos from a local Mexican restaurant and they were on corn tortillas.. It ruined both for me.

7. How do you celebrate Easter? Spend the day with my mom and sister. This year we are having roast and potatoes and I made the bunny cake, I’ll post a pic in a bit ☺

8. Hard boiled Easter eggs or plastic eggs? Hard boiled, I love them. Can’t make them, but love them haha!

UPDATED: Isn't he just so fun! He would be much cuter if I could actually decorate a cake. I did not receive that gene lol


I hope everyone has a very Happy Easter! Make sure you tell everyone you love that you love them. Who knows what tomorrow may bring.

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box. We passed around the wrapped ornaments and opened them, sort of like a white elephant exchange. That way we all got to oogle and google  each others ornaments.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?

One Month to love book review

This book is divided into 30 short chapters that cover all different aspects of relationships in your life. Some people are more easy to love than others, and this definitely helps with the difficulties involved in some people. Some things in this book are very predictable. Such as focusing on the person that you actually with. In the age we live in, it is often easier or more convenient to 'play' on our phones or computers, instead of paying attention to the people that matter the most.  Each chapter ends with a challenge which includes questions or things to think about and consider. While much of this book is just reiterating what we all should be doing to maintain and straighten our relationships there are some surprising ideas. One that stood out to me is the chapter entitled. ' Practicing the art of risking awkwardness'.  Included in this chapter is the idea of swallowing your pride and facing the uncomfortable stage where something has happened and usually run …
