A Week In The Life Day 1

Hello bloggers! I sure hope everyone is having an EXCELLENT Tuesday! Well....as most of you know, I am going to be doing A Week In The Life this year. If you are not familiar with the project you can check out Ali Edwards' blog. Anyway, the basic premise is that you take a TON of pictures of your everyday and record what an average week looks like for your family. Here is my first day of pictures, I ran them through Instagram (#weekinthelife).
This is my "I don't wanna get out of bed face" LOL. I get up around 7 to get Olivia moving for school.
Once we get Olivia to school Hannah sits down to breakfast. Right now we are loving Apple Jacks!
We don't have a dishwasher....so at least twice a day you can find me elbow deep in bubbles!
Can't shower around here without first removing all the barbies and toys from the tub!
I am ALL ABOUT the crackle nail polishes right now! Even on my toes!
RAINY and COLD today!
Because I'm a SLACKER poor Olivia had to stay home today to finish her science fair project that we didn't get around to in the weeks leading up to it! WOW....somedays I just suck. So....yep. This is what I got! I hope you enjoy! If you are working on A Week In the Life and have blogged it leave me a link! I'd love to see what you're up to! <3 Katie

Who needs a little Hunger Games?

I just wanted to share a quick photo of my newest SMASH page! A collage (?spelling) page of The Hunger Games! I went to see the movie with my Sister in law and my neices. We had a GREAT time...and the movie didn't disappoint! I can't WAIT for the next one to come out! I am currently reading Mockinjay, the final book in the series. :( I have put it off because I just don't want to see it end!
I know he's half my age, but I just can't get enough PEETA! I think I'm having a mid-life crisis. No. Wait. I know I am. :P Have a great day ladies! And may the odds be EVER in your favor! <3 Katie

A Little Sunday SMASH

Hello there! Today I was browsing the net when I found that Paper Issues is having a SMASH blog hop! After skipping merrily through the blogs and getting TONS of inspiration, I decided to sit at my desk and play along! The other day I was coloring with the girls and used watercolor to fill in this cute little hello kitty! I LOVED that she had a camera and decided I would use her cute little self in my SMASH!
I stamped the arrows and painted them with watercolor also, kind of going for a gradient effect....I think I achieved it! Some WASHI tape, a few thickers and my handy dandy (no I do NOT watch blues clues....anymore) label maker, some glue and VOILA! Hope you all have a great remainder of the weekend! OH....and don't forget!
Hope to see you there! <3 Katie
