A Few Things.

I'm tired today.
Jacob decided it would be a wonderful idea to start his day a little too early and then once he was down again Ethan decided to wake him up forty minutes later. 
When I asked Ethan why he woke him up he said, "But I love him and I want to play with him."
How can I be mad at that?
Anyway, here's a few random things for you.

I made pasta last night with this...
I don't usually buy stuff that's all organic since the price is just too high for us, but these were on sale so I gave them a try. They're already cooked so all you have to do is just chop them up throw them in with some pasta and sauce and there you have it.
I used whole wheat pasta, regular old tomato sauce, sprinkled some mozzarella cheese on top and baked it. 
Yum! It was a hit!
Ethan liked it but didn't eat the sausages, which is fine by me. 
So, I recommend it to you. 

My sister gave me a recipe for a great make it yourself chex mix.
I've been eating it by the bowlfuls.

I'm contemplating attending Blog Sugar.
It's a blogging event that will be held in September of this year.
It would be out of my comfort zone to go so I'm still thinking about it.
I'm always so nervous to meet new people and put myself out there, but I think it would be good for me. 
I don't know, I talk myself into it and then talk myself out again.
We shall see. 

Sometimes I pretend to be crafty. My sister showed me how to make these cute little flowers the other day.
I've had this little chalk board for some time and I knew I wanted it my fridge but I wasn't sure how to decorate it. These flowers are perfect.
And that's my word of the year up there, which I need a lot of it today.

This my very clean and organized bedroom.
It hasn't looked like this in a very long time.
Ever since Jacob has come into our life this room has been a mess. Everything was just getting thrown in there and I'm tired of it.
Jacob is no longer in our room at night or for naps so there is no reason why we can't make noise and put stuff away. And yes, the pack in play is still up, but it's leaving asap.
I challenged Brett and myself to keeping it tidy for one week.
My hope is that the tidiness will continue into the next week and the next.
Wishful thinking? I hope not.

I came across this photo and love it.
My future soccer player.

That's all for now.
Happy Fat Tuesday!
