I took Sydney to the Optometrist last Friday because of a 'lazy' eye issue I had noticed awhile back that recently escalated. After several hours and an eye dilation later the doc finally explained what was going on and that she was going to need glasses. I have to admit I was completely bummed! I kind of assumed that with my family genes and Matt's she might end up in them someday...but not right before her 3rd Birthday!  I didn't end up with my specs until I 4th grade, and I know how much of a pain they can I guess I wasn't expecting my 3 year old to be dealing with it that much sooner than I had. But I am grateful that glasses are our only concern! We will have to patch her good eye for a bit to help the other one regain its strength, but all in all it could have been 10x worse and we are so glad it wasn't. So this evening we headed on up to Target and picked out these adorable purplish/pink specs. She wanted something green, but we just couldn't find another pair that fit as well... told her she can get those next time, since this won't be the last pair we end up with over the next umpteen years. Who wants to take bets on how long these last before they are broken or stretched! Thank goodness for warranty's!

I recently received a $30 dollar credit on Shutterfly for moving some pics from Photoworks, and at the same time they were running a FREE Standard Shipping on all Photobooks for Mother's I finally took some time to make a book of some of my prints for myself.

Needless to say I can't wait for it to arrive!!!

48 eggs later . . .

Yep...I bought the big bag of eggs this year. Figured it would be fun and why not spoil the kid until my husband pointed out that she may get bored trying to find so many...which I hadn't really thought of...but it turned out she had quite a blast and probably could have searched all morning for them...we had quite the assembly line going on as she opened them up and dumped the contents into her very own 'treat' jar! You should hear the bribes coming out of this three year old all day trying to get her hands on that stuff!

No Planting

Does anyone else find the humor in this sign?
Please tell me I am not the only one that thought this was funny!

Happy Easter

Per my husband...
What's Easter about? . . . CUPCAKES!

(sorry he didn't get any of these...they were a project we did last weekend...)

Round this house we celebrate that immortal bunny rabbit whom we never see but delivers glorious plastic eggs filled with treats year after year after year.

Here's hoping you get something fun in your eggs this year!
