blowing bubbles

Cory and I are probably the only ones who find this little video absolutely adorable/entertaining/fantastic, but oh well. Our little LucyAnn loves to blow bubbles. Sometimes, when she gets mad at me, she will blow bubbles instead of screech. I prefer the bubbles to the screech.

I cannot believe my little Lucy is now 6 months old! Time just needs to slow down...I'm not ready for her to grow up so fast!

spring break

This past week we were able to go down to Mexico for spring break. Basically, this post will just be pics of our trip. We had a blast! The weather was perfect, my uncle, aunt, and cousins from Colorado came down, and I got a nice spring tan. It was definitely a great trip. The only downer was cute little Grady wasn't feeling well when Sam and Nicole got there, so they had to go home after only a day. They found out he had an ear infection so I'm sure he's doing better now that he has some medicine. Poor little guy! 
















We had so much fun! I hope your spring break was great too!

oh my yummnesssss!

So I've read all about these donut muffins on different blogs and recipe sites for months now and have always thought "hmmm, yeah, those might be good". Well today and made them and now I find myself asking "where have you been my whole life!?" Let me just say that I think a good cake donut is probably one of the best things ever and a good muffin isn't too shabby either. Well, combining the two is even more fantastic than I imagined! 

I used this recipe from AllRecipes.com and only did 3 things differently:
1. I added a tsp of vanilla because I just couldn't imagine muffins/donuts without it
2. I only used 1/2 tsp of nutmeg because I didn't want it to be too strong
3. I baked them in a standard cupcake pan...it made 6 which was perfect for the hubs and I


Sooooo....if you are thinking to yourself "I wonder what I could whip up for breakfast?" let me just suggest giving these little guys a try. Oh, and they don't have any eggs in them (which I sometimes run out of) so they can be made with basically what you have on hand! The only problem I've found is that I think I'm getting addicted to them and now my goal of being bathing suit ready in a couple months might be in danger!

beach bum

This past weekend we were able to spend a day down in Mexico. The weather was perfect and we all had such a good time! LucyAnn absolutely loved laying out on the beach. 








 
We cannot wait until spring break so we can go soak up some more of that lovely ocean weather!
