A peek at what I'm working on...

First of all, if you wouldn't mind indulging me for just a second while I show off my cute kids on Easter:
This was after 3 hours of church, and they are still smiling....miracles are real!
Ah, I heart them :)

Today I am working on finding a permanent home for these beautiful Easter lilly's from my parents

Thanks to my crappy track record with plants, chances are good that the whole thing could be dead in a week. But, I'm remaining optimistic that they will last through the spring, so I'm going to replant them.

I could just buy a pot, but where's the fun in that? Instead, I'm focusing on turning this thing from a $1 Easter bucket into a pretty planter.
I'll let you know how it goes....

I want to give a huge thanks to Jessie from Mix & Chic for awarding me the Stylish Blogger Award over the weekend! 

Like the last one, I have to reveal 7 things about myself, and then pass it on.

1. I have 2 dogs
2. Sometimes I wonder why I wasn't satisfied with 1 dog
3. I believe that the only reason to run is if I am being chased
4. I have never been to a club
5. I would love to live somewhere with mountains, snow, lakes, forests AND a beach
6. When I was a kid I wanted to be a storm chaser
7. My favorite thing to do is laugh

Now I'm passing it on to......Full of Great Ideas! I just found this blog recently and I really enjoy it. The name is definitely fitting!

I'm off to keep working on my bucket!


  1. Your kids are so adorable! And I also like your newly uploaded picture. Brooke, you are so pretty!

    I don't have a green thumb, too! The only thing that won't die on me are orchids. Even if I forget to water them for weeks, they are still alive. So, my hubby only buy me orchids. LOL!


  2. Brooke, I love the picture of the kids. I love and miss you guys. Your baby's cheeks are as chunky as my baby's. I love it! They are adorable:). PS- Artichokes on plates are a nice touch.

  3. OMG.... I wanted to be a storm chaser too!!!! we're awesome. Your kids are adorable

  4. I love the picture Brooke! And I can't wait to see what you do with the bucket! :0)

  5. You crack me up!! I kill plants too :) I have brought home 4 different dogs because I think my dog is lonely being the only dog-then I realized she is depressed when I being home another dog. I love storm chasing and want to live at a beach, forest, mountain snow lake place you speak of!!


    Thank you for the fabulous comment on my blog, I'm your newest follower!

  6. LOVE the pic of the twins! So sweet! And so is your oldest :) It's funny you say you can't keep a plant alive because I have the same problem. I recently got a small one as a gift and love it so much, I am going to really make an effort with this one!
