Week 14: Adventures in the City ~ HoeDown Birthday Party ~ Family
Still loving Project Life. I really look forward to it each weekend. I've finally found what is working for me and what is not.
I'm not printing the photos from home anymore, that was getting crazy expensive. I've been using Walmart, Shutterfly and sometimes Snapfish. It just depends what type of coupon they are offering.
I'm printing my journaling cards at home for now. I have been using digital elements with cards and brushes from Jessica Sprague and Ali Edwards. Sometimes I'll even make my Week card with Martha Stewart's Cards Studio App.
I love hand journaling some and using Photoshop too. My recipes will probably all be hand written and I think it looks much nicer in my case to use Photoshop, with the brushes for my journaling cards.
It's been awhile since we've been able to just do our thing and enjoy ourselves.
On Saturday, we made grilled chicken and Spanish Rice. I made so much salsa last season and wasn't as happy with it as I've been in the past, so this recipe is a great way to use it all up.
Note to self: Don't be shy.....add more "heat" this year!
OK, and made yet another batch of Rice Krispy Treats. I will soon turn into one of these devils.
Unfortunately, we are in for a snow storm the next couple of days. I think it will just be a rain and snow mix. Needless to say, the daffodils are less than thrilled.
We snipped quite a few flowers yesterday and stuffed a bunch of old beer bottles and jugs with them. I love collecting beer and soda bottles. So many fun things you can do with them!
Then we headed outside to work on the fire pit. I should have taken a before picture, because it was really something to see. Large weedy grasses and a few of our trees didn't quite make it this year. I'm glad they are guaranteed for a year. I guess in a few weeks we will try tree shopping again.
It's been quite windy here this weekend so it was the perfect excuse to take a break and fly a kite. Jake's Godmother gave him a kite and he's been so excited to use it. It took awhile, but we finally had success. I honestly, have never bought Jake a kite, never even really thought about it.
All I have to say is......I'm definitely flying a kite everytime I get the chance :)
