Chocolate = Love

As I am writing this I am licking the melted chocolate on my finger. I know, disgusting. What is wrong with me? Every since Monday when our home had a Valentine's Chocolate invasion by way of my sweet husband and the Girl Scout delivering 7 boxes (yikes- what was I thinking?) of cookies, I have been scooping up anything brown and putting it in my mouth.
It is justified, I think, because it was gift. A gift of love. Chocolate just IS love. And I think it might be true... it can be better then... any who...

Speaking of love. Remember when Justin made the bunk bed for Audrey's doll? Well it wouldn't fit in our Pod when we moved back to AZ so Daddy and I have been living with large amounts of guilt. Now that guilt has been set free because we have made two more beds. Ahhh...
And not just beds. Beds with an attached desk.
Guess who had the most fun? (Once a girl, always a girl!)

We have been taking advantage of the great weather. Basking in the sun and just being together. It feels good (and it's even better with a Thin Mint ;)

Oh and I have been meaning to write the latest. Carissa told me she is not afraid of anything. Not even the common house cat.
Now that is a relief!

Sweater Pillows

This was Tuesday. I had the privilege of being a chaperon for the 2nd Grade class trip to see "Go Dog Go" the musical at the Tempe Center for the Arts. Have you read the book? If you have it, go and get it and read it to your child tonight. But don't just read it... really read it. (Feel free to sing part of it.) Now imagine that book in an 82 minute performance...
Yup - you get the picture. So, Tuesday was sunny and I could barely get Audrey to keep her sweatshirt on. Now it is Friday and we will be lucky to see 50 degrees today. I am not complaining. Except for one tiny detail that I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR!!

I tried on all 3 sweaters I owned and decided I hated them all. So last night I chopped them up and made them into these really cute pillows.
I think they make way better pillows then sweaters. The green one was my least favorite sweater. OH SO TIGHT. OH SO ITCHY. But as a doesn't get better :)
I followed this great tutorial at Make it and Love it. Hmm what can I cut up next?
