Welcome to My Blog!

I created this blog to share some of my crafts (when I have time to do them), some of my Mommy musings, recipes, and my day to day life.

The Best of Intentions

Today, I had PLANNED to work on the mini-album that I am going to give my Mom. I wanted to make some cuts from my Life's a Beach cart. Well Owen and Kaden had different plans for me today. Kaden was fussy and simply did not want to be put down. It makes it hard to scrap when you are holding an 8 month old all day. Mom may get her album (which was supposed to be a Christmas gift) sometime around Easter at the rate we are going.

So my project 365 picture was going to be a picture of my yummy guacomole, but then Owen's antics at the table pretty well summed up our day today, so I think it will be the keeper. He had just said, "Mommy, I tired," and laid his head down on the table. Too cute!

Here is the picture of the guacomole. I would love to share this VERY easy recipe with you!

1 ripe avocado
a few spoonfuls of your favorite salsa or picante
a generous squeeze of fresh lime
a few pinches of kosher salt.

Mash the avocado with a fork and carefully fold in the other ingredients. The lime is important. I didn't have a fresh lime one day when I made this, and the results weren't nearly as tasty.

I love this little recipe because it is soooo simple to make. Even my husband who usually doesn't like guacomole because "it looks gross" enjoys this.

You probably won't have leftovers, but here is an AWESOME tip it you do. Leave the avocado pit in the guacomole if you will be putting it in the fridge. It helps to keep if from turning brown.


  1. What an adorable picture of Owen!

  3. He is cute, but I will eat it if he won't
