Catching Up!

I have taken lots of pictures of random goings on this week! I recently started a little list of things I want to blog about, but I realize now that just picking one of those things per post will put me behind pretty quickly. Sooo, I'm going to share a whole week with you, ha! 

For starters, check out my first Dahlia! It was well worth the wait and there are several more big ol' buds waiting to bloom. Wowzers, it is huge and so beautiful!!!!
I think I jumped the gun on sharing my couch makeover because the very next day, I turned some embroidered tea towels, of which I only had Sunday and Monday, into some quilted pillows. The vintage ball fringe is something I got at a yard sale several years ago and have been waiting for the right project to come around. Turns out, this was it :)

I got my carpet, rug and couches cleaned this week and boy do they look better! If I had taken this picture on Monday, I would have been too embarrassed of the yucky carpet to post it, but not today...
This is my boy trying on some of the girls' stuff. Don't tell Daddy :)
Gotta love that cute little plumber's crack, right?
Last night we had a movie night! Some friends of ours found The Lion King on VHS and they brought it over (along with their VHS player because we're losers and don't have one) and we cuddled up to watch. Granny came...
Love that pic! :)

For dinner, I made some pizza bites. I found these on Pinterest and I must link the recipe because they are FABULOUS! You bake them in muffin tins and dip them in pizza sauce. I've made them twice now and they are my new/easier version of pizza and movie night. So much fun. You can find the recipe here. Instead of chopping pepperoni, I use the new mini pepperonis which make it even easier. Yum. Double it because they go fast :)
I have lots more good recipes waiting to be tried on my Pinterest "Yum" board

Tomorrow we are going to the Renassaince Festival! We have never been before so we are super excited. I'm sure I'll have lots of pictures to share :)
