Just Be You

My pretty little girl, Trinity.  My DH ran into the store to grab something real quick so I let my daughter sit in the front while we waited.  In the picture she was looking at her baby bro in the back seat. 

The OLW this month is BE at The Moments. 

Thursday Takes #54 from Sketches in Thyme.

Khristen Challenge this month at Sketches 4 All is open sketch so I did up another one.

New Ideas

Adding More:
70.  Get 5 decortive items for my home.
71.  Organize and put all recipes on recipe cards.

My Work In Progress Items:
1. Finish creating my 101 in 1001 list. (71/101)
101 is a lot of things to come up with and complete.   

12. Visit 100 random blogs and leave comment(s). (67/100)

We picked up a few (new to us) pieces of furniture from my DH Grandmother and Uncle.  A kitchen table, hutch and bedroom dresser w/matching end tables.  My sister came the other weekend and we were discussing decor.  To be honest I have no sense of designing, at all.  Most of the items in my home are hand-me-downs or gifts.  I have very few items that I have boughten myself.  Well, my sis introducted me to DIY decor blogs.  Wow, I can't beleive how many great ideas there are out there.  And some of these houses are amazing.

25. Try 100 new recipes. (13/100)
We tried out some new recipes the last few weeks.  3 were no cook which was great because it was in the 100's that week. 

Banana Flaxseed Muffins that I made were small muffins so I eat two with my morning coffee.   I have been trying to get more fiber in my diet which is really hard.  For the most part I stuck to the recipe but instead of adding more flaxseed on top I put some oatmeal.   I've now made these twice.  I also tried a new Raspberry Lemon Muffin too.

Completed Items:
45. Donate 50 items. (50/50)

I actually donated more than 50 items.  I had a feeling that this would be an easy one for me.  I donate things all the time.  I love when I get hand-me-downs/free things.  But, it feels even better when I can pass things along to other people.
