Valentine

Hope you guys are ready for the 14 days of Valentine, starting Monday....I am ready!
Have a great week-end!

Winner chicken diner

I never won anything. Today, because there is always a first. I won 8 Napkin rings (2 sets) !!!!! So happy.I want the red.....Gorgeous.

Style Sisters have real ideas, their own pictures. Their Table arrangments for Valentine are so beautiful!!! Check them here...Style sisters.

Garden

I saw this, this morning on Facebook:

Life is too short to wake up with regrets. ♥ So love the people who treat you right. ♥ Forget about the ones who don't. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.... Post to your wall if you agree



This is one of my resolution for 2010:
I am a gardener, i select my plants very meticulously. I only plant my favorites and for the right climate. I design with colors, shape and height. I decided that like my gardens, i would select the people who surround me. The ones who love me, support me, are there for me.
AND IT'S WORKING!

Talents


Frenchy..your talent is surely not writing. So what? at least i have fun! I am straight to the point. Sincere and funny.
I have heard a lot of time that if i am not good at something i should not bother. The thing is, my goal in life is not to be better than someone else but to have fun and do the best i can. I have seen a number of individuals very good at something but they use it for a bad purpose and have a bad attitude.
What is the point if you can write, if you use it to insult others?
Man was made to have joy and to find talents to enjoy.
I just ate the "Chicks rule" candy...Yum!
XOXO


Des Talents, des hobbies?

I don't have any...I don't like anything. This was our conversation few years ago with Hubby. Then, it hit me...I had lost myself. It happens to a lot of Moms...Then i went on a journey to find what would make ME happy, exited, fulfilled. Now i have so many hobbies, i can't count. Pets...love them...Hatching my first chicks...moment we all still talk about.

Birthday cakes...The amazements in all eyes.



Photography...As to try to catch a precious memory.

And laugh...Mommy it's cold in Utah...

I am a happier Mom, my kids are happier around me. I teach them by example, that if they work at it, they can do anything and love every moments of it. Life is fun and i love to do so many things now. Life is beautiful.


Avec amour to the Moms Arise Team. XOXO.

M.O.Ms Arise

I have been asked by the delightful ladies at M.O.Ms Arise blogspot to write a post for them about my hobbies. It'll be up tomorrow on their site. I had a lot of fun making it. Hope you guys enjoy my personal story.

Date

Tonight, hubby and i had a date. My camera started acting up so the only picture is this one. Kind of gross..HAHAHA. It was very good though. We went to Ruby River Steak house. I haven't had a steak for so long, with cinnamon yams. All good American food!!!Then we saw this....

I loved the movie. The..la belle epoque costumes..England buildings. I have always been a fan of Sherlock holmes. There is an English TV series i used to watch when young. Love it!

Puppy love

Our puppy, a golden retriever got so happy to see my 10 year old, that he left a big mark on her shirt. Has i was laughing at the mark she said..."He was trying to get the birdy!". HAHAHAHA

Bed time!

I find my little fairy in the dryer this morning. She said "It's my new bed!" Your new bed, i thought...No more slapping in the face in the middle of the night? No more pushing me at the border of the bed all night and barely falling...



Then i thought...No more little arm curdled around my neck before going to sleep...No more warm little body next to mine...all so safe. No more blinking and giggling in the morning...No more little hand on my chick and "i love you Mama". Please don't grow up so fast...let me capture those memories...Ma petite fee with a chocolate mouth.

Bouton...Bouton...

You guys can grab my button....

This morning...

This morning...I am feeling...Colorful.

Cute little hat...Chanel inspired...never goes out of style...With a brooch i added.
I could have put more pearls here like Chanel does....I will stay simple today. The hoody jacket makes it casual too.
The stripe shirt is a basic...has been in style for ever in Paris. If you are curvaceous on top...it could look too wide and too much. I layer it under a light jacket....just a peekaboo...

Capture moments and journal it, on line or on paper. Cherish your life....

Cookie mix jar gift

I made those cookie jars gifts for Christmas 2008. A great idea would be to make it for a Birthday depending on seasons. Change the fabric and ingredients. Like valentine M&M or strawberry ones for Summer unstead of chocolate chips. Who has a Birthday in February?

J'aime....The marks the kids make in the snow early in the morning when they go to catch the school bus.
J'aime the crisp and cracking sound of the snow under my feet on my way to the chicken coop.
J'aime the dogs company all the way there...


J'aime the beautifull Utah mountains...

Note to myself...

February read

I have a resolution for 2010... to read one book a month. This is the book for next month. As a man thinketh by James Allen. Hubby says it changed his life at a very crucial time. It may do the same for me...
"Good thoughts and actions can never produce bad results; bad thoughts and actions can never produce good results"
"They themselves are makers of themselves"

That is if my 2 year old doesn't rip it apart before i get to it. LOL.
