Happy {LOVE} Day

I have some photos of him smiling but I couldn't resist posting this one- because I just love that little face!
NO... I did not forget about Valentine's Day. Sorry no crafts and stuff this year. We did fun stuff, I just didn't have time to post it.
AND I've been having a large dose of REALITY lately.
A heavy heart for many loved ones-friends and family, and even some people I don't know;
An absent husband due to a crazy work schedule that leaves me doing everything 24/7;
A 2 1/2 year old that is pretty much potty training himself because his mommy is too tired to try;
Tired isn't the right word- exhausted doesn't even say enough :)
An almost crawling baby (army scooting everywhere) which means I have to keep the floor cleaner than it's present state;
A pile of projects in a room I don't want to enter because it is pretty cluttered up.
Discouraged- because of the large amount of weight I have to lose from this last baby and it isn't
coming off as easily as it has in the past;
YEAH, just REALITY. Just life. Just stuff. You know.
And I remember that
"Nothing is so bad that whining about it won't make it worse."

So I won't whine. I'm just sayin'- lack-of-craft-posts- is-due-to-realities-listed-above. wanna see something unbelievable??
Yeah, we are getting a new house built right now- and I'm really excited. (Sorry if this morphs into a decorating blog...when that happens...)
But after seeing that playhouse, I want to move there!

OH..and I finally found a nightstand to make a toy kitchen from! (Yes I am easily distracted...)

Couple of things,
-love your new blog header, etc...
-love me a pouty baby. In fact, I have been known to laugh at children (discretely I hope) who are crying because they are so darn adorable with alligator tears spurting out and that pathetic woe is me face. Toooo cute!
-So glad you are gonna make a kitchen! Looking forward to how you make it boy friendly. I know it will be fabulous!
