You know your a mom when.....

You know your a mom if the dark circles under your eyes is not from partying but from sleep deprivation from a crying child

You know your a mom if you make coffee and drink it cold

You know your a mom when you cut up every ones food at the table while your out at a restaurant

You know your a mom when you have 2 inch roots because you cant find the time to touch them up

You know your a mom if your lipstick is broken in half but you still manage to use it

You know your a mom if you find yourself drinking from a juice box

You know your a mom when you ask your child "How does this look on me sweetie?"

You know your a mom if while using the bathroom, you have constant knocking and banging on the other side of the door

You know your a mom if you wait for everyone else to eat and consume the leftovers on their plates

You know your a mom when your kids throw up and you catch it

You cant bear to give away baby clothes- its so final

And most of all you know your a mom if by the end of the day you would do it all over again, and wish they could stay in you arms as your little baby

Mother's Day Soap Giveaway

This is a cute picture taken of 2 out of my 4 girls .... Sara is 6, its her birthday, , shes the one in the polka dot dress. Olivia is 3 and Bilbo (the Goldendoodle) is 1 and a half. I thought I would post this because its too darn cute not to share :)

Mothers Day Giveaway! I am giving away a $20 soap package on Monday May 3rd. Please leave a comment below and leave a comment. What's your most favorite memory that you shared with your mom? My favorite memory is when I was little , every morning she would have her cafe latte and put her feet up on the chair I was sitting.. She would quickly realize I was sitting there already and motioned to move them off to another chair. But I would always move over a bit and say " its ok mom, you can put your feet here".... This seems insignificant,but to me it was a feeling of comfort and love to have mom's feet resting right next to me. Its the little things in life that your children will let's hear yours :)

New Baby , New Rug

My girlfriend had her baby yesterday. Her name is Julianna, and she weighed 8 pounds 7oz . This is my friend's first child and I know she will make a wonderful mom. And of course, dad Jeff will make a great daddy too.

I also received my rug from Crate and Barrel the other day. I love it and wouldn't change it...It is super soft on your feet and the pile is nice and thick. The quality for the price does not beat what we have here. Great first time experience ordering from them. I took pictures but will post them later today to show you what the rug looks like. I am also happy that I decided on the larger 9 x 12 size, and not 8x10. The 8x10 would have been too small.

Working Away....

Today I am making Sweet Pea Soap, and also going to make some Graham Cracker Scrubs. I am feverishly working away in preparation of the Scattered Seeds Craft Show to boot. Last year, I ran out of body butter so Ill be sure to have plenty on hand.

Ill be bringing donut soaps this year. They were not available last Spring but will be there for sure. Vanilla Sprinkle and Blueberry will be the choices among the donuts. If time permits, I may be able to squeeze in another choice.

I should be getting the Asimi Rug thats pictured above (the brown one on top) any day now, and I'm very nervous and excited about it at the same time. I'm a little worried about colors, size ect...We don't have a Crate and Barrel store here, so I had to order it over the phone. Ive tried many rugs over the years (yes years!) and not one seemed really right for the space. There was one that I settled on months ago, but the rug lady said it was discontinued. Maybe it was a good thing because otherwise I would have been stuck with it. The rug selection here is next to nil in my opinion. My husband thinks that there is alot to select from but I'm picky and the styles that I am looking for ,not everyone likes the style I am looking after. I think hes wrong though...Why cant they have more rugs here that look like the Asimi? Its timeless I think, and the pattern is just right.

Rugs are quite expensive, especially the wool ones. We decided on only getting a wool rug because of the 5 kids and dog. Our dog Bilbo wont even come close to this carpet anyway. He was taught from 8 weeks not to go upstairs (carpeted), and our entire main floor is hardwood. He thinks carpet is a foreign substance.
