I saw this project the other day on Pinterest and was so excited to try it! I thought this project would be perfect to do with my new elementary students, but I am just a little concerned with the safety of having young children and sticks. SO for now its just something fun for me! If the idea of painting a stick doesn't sound thrilling to you, still try it..there is something oddly entertaining about it- Shane even painted a few!

This is the second race that I have been to in the past month and I have come to the conclusion that open water swimming is definitely an art. My husband Shane has recently become addicted to open water swim races, extremely LONG open water swim races. I love watching the events and am truly inspired by the athletes that compete in them. Shane has competed in both a 5k and a 3k swim. SO.. if you haven't been to one of these things before- you definitely should!

first ones in my previous post. I found new varieties of tiles to use.. all varying prices from 30 to 40 cents. They give some different options and allow for some different looks. I also changed the cork piece from covering the whole back of the tile to insetting it by 1/4" its a little more aesthetically pleasing this way!

I really been wanting to do this... It takes some, so if you go for this- you have to have some patience. The longer the quote or verse the more letters you have to find. After doing this I would suggest just cutting out tons of letters throughout the alphabet and saving them in a folder or something- so then all you have to do is pick the ones you want!
This past weekend, Shane and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary! We followed the tradition and froze the top of our wedding cake and ate it a whole year later. I was definitely skeptical of the cake quality... but it was surprisingly delicious! So we ate cake and watched our wedding video!
Happy 1 year husband!

My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer a few months ago and last Monday finished her radiation treatments and is cancer free! Wahoo! Go mom! So in honor of this celebration, of course we had to make cupcakes! We made a strawberry cake with a strawberry cream cheese icing!
