Tanner got home early from school so we went fishing.

This spot it so easy to get to... Perfect for our little ones.

The girls were very interested in the worms...
I had to suck up my fear of the wiggly- squirmy little things and hold one
to show the girls that they don't hurt you.

Taya still seemed a little unsure. 
However Paige LOVED them. 
She had a great time holding ALL the worms.

They had a BLAST, yay for a fun daddy.

Taya's Side of the Story

Taya and I started out Saturday morning with a few yard sales. 
{didn't really get much...} 
Taya did however score 2 brand new Crayola water color sets for $0.75. 
{She LOVES to paint}  
That afternoon while I was doing dishes I let her color on 3 large pieces of paper. 
{I put her on the back patio for this, she gets kinda messy} 
Soon I noticed she was no longer using the brushes, but instead her fingers and toes. 

Inventive right? 
The next time I looked out, she was painting spots on poor Abby. 

That was the last of painting for the day...
I put away the paints and had her wash up. 

I was upstairs cleaning while she watched Netflix. 
Tanner came home and was giving me a full report on the Jeep.
{we had to get new brakes}
We were commenting on how nice and peaceful it was. 
{Paige was napping, Taya watching TV}
It was nice to take a deep breath and soak in the quiet. 
Then we heard those thumping feet coming up the stairs. 
When she walked in I instantly noticed some white paint on her clothes. 
{I had been painting a sign earlier and didn't close the paint can}
Sure that Taya had graciously painted my sign for me, I went down to see the damage...

All coming from my sweet little Taya:
"I was down stairs watching a movie. 
I found some paint on the table and painted a picture on the couch, the window, the wall and the TV. 
Then I went upstairs to see what my Mommy and Daddy were doing."


Honestly, I was glad Tanner was home to help with the clean up.  We got the majority of it cleaned off.  However out TV does still have some white left in the speaker holes... Any ideas?

Farm Chicks!

Farm Chicks was on Saturday and it was AMAZING!

Here are a few things that I fell in love with...

{these were only $30 each, someone had already bought them, aww man!}

{cute easy fence}

I bought this

to someday make this...

Perfect bookcase, right?

I'll keep adding more photos as the week goes by.

Where have I been? 
Cooped up with my two girls.  Seriously it's only broke 75 degrees maybe 4 days in the year 2011. 
I'm starting to get cabin fever. 

Someone needs to take my computer away...
I'm obsessed with Pinterest
It's my new found love, thanks Kate. 

Damnit.  SO true.

When I'm not pinning something I'm playing "craigslist" stalker...
I'm looking for a place our little family can rent in Rexburg. 
{Know of a house for rent, PLEASE let me know}
I don't want to live here...


Slight excitement...
Farm Chicks is in just 38 hours! 
However, we're currently saving every dime for our "move" in August.
It's hard to get overly excited about an event like this if you have NO money to spend.

I do love a surprise!
Tanner gave me the green flag to go to Spokane Friday night
and stay with my friends in anticipation for the big show!
{I'm planning a trip buy Target while I'm there, gotta get my fix}
Tonight he told me he wants me to take our Jeep Cherokee, not the Toyota Camry... What!?
The Camry gets way better gas mileage and where I've only got a few small bills to spend I won't need the cargo room.

He told me going to Farm Chicks without $$ is like going fishing without a pole. 
Taking pictures of all the places you want to "fish" just isn't as excited as "catching" that fish.  He so graciously shared some of his graduation MONEY with me!  Silly little moments like that remind me that I'm very loved.
{P.S. Tanner I know you never read my blog, but know I LOVE YOU!}

I'm so excited right now, I feel like pulling a Taya moment...
{Running from front door, to the back door, and back again yelling, just because I'm so excited}

I'll post pictures next week!
