I hope you had a good weekend. Mine was super super super busy, but in a good way. We got a lot of things done, we ate good food, we indulged in yummy desserts and we spent time together, and I think that's all you could really ask for :)

The Weather:::86 degrees right now. We did have some rain on Friday night and cloudy skies throughout the day on Saturday, a little thunder but no more rain. We have beautiful blue skies today, and if the temperature stays as is, it will be wonderful outside :)

Homemaking Tips:::Did you know that you can hull strawberries easily, by using a straw???? Just insert the straw from the bottom up and the hull will come right off.
Looking around the house:::I have snoring pugs around me, it's like a symphony LOL Children are still in bed.
My husbands Knight in Armor is standing at the corner of my living room and it has scared me a gazillion times already. He finally built a stand for it and got it all set up, and now I'm freaking out everytime I round the corner of my hallway and that thing is standing there LOL
Have a living room that has definitely been *lived in* this weekend, so there's glasses and toys and books etc around.
From the camera:::Have to show you what we made this weekend. The idea came from the Classy Clutter blog.
On my prayer list:::Lots of prayers, I am constantly in prayer during the day, even when I'm on facebook or blogging. Anytime I see a prayer request, I immediately send it up :)
