     Sometimes there are great surprises and sometimes there are not so great surprises. Typically I love surprises! When it comes to my car though I could go with never seeing another surprise ever ever again!

     Three weeks ago my car died on my way to story time with the kids. Thanks to some wonderful friends I got a tow home. Came to find out our engine motor was dead. We decided a motor replacement was our best bet and an expensive repair. Three weeks of happy life then on my trip to drop Tyler off in Nevada for the summer it died again. Turns out it was alternator and engine coil issues. Got them fixed and now I want to get rid of my car ASAP ha ha. Bad surprises!

     On the other hand Friday evening I was playing outside with my kids and the neighbors kids bracing myself for a lonely Mother's day when a shadow cast overhead. I looked up and saw my hubby standing over me smiling! What a great surprise! He drove back into Provo for the weekend for my mother's day present. I loved it!

I love this man!

We spent Saturday sleeping in, shopping, outside at the park, driving up the canyon, then ended it at a movie. It was a perfectly lazy weekend!

We rounded out our Mother's day weekend at my mom's with the family, having dinner, visiting, and cuddling this sweet new baby. Check out that hair! 

     A quick note on mother's, My mother is an amazing example to me of strength, hard work, love and kindness. She is quite funny and very honest, which may be where I get my bluntness from. She is one of the smartest people I know. She is a fabulous mother and an even better grandma! My kids and I are lucky! My mother in law raised me an amazing husband, this speaks miles for the kind of woman she is. I know I am truly lucky to be married to that man and I could never thank her enough for that! She is also a wonderful grandmother! I have truly been blessed to become a mother of my own to two great kids and I hope I can live up to all the wonderful examples of mother's I have in my life!

Pinterest Challenge Recap

     So sorry this is so late but here is my pinterest challenge recap. I did finish these on time but I have been suckin at the blogging lately. So without further ado here it is.

Week 4:  was some graphic art for Joel's room. I decided to go with some bike themes in Joel's room. here is what I came up with. I plan on making some smaller prints and hanging them up to I just didn't have time. 

Week 5: Naan Bread. This recipe turned out so delicious! My hubby loved it so much he want's me to make it for everything ha ha. We have since been to our favorite Indian restaurant and I was surprised how very close it did taste to actual Naan. Try it, you will love it. As far as bread goes it was  quite easy to make! Recipe here

Week 6: dresser redo. This turned out so cute! Here is the inspiration photo and the original dresser. 

Here is the finished dresser.

This is for Joel's room and I am going to go back and put some bikes on the sides where the inspiration photo has number's but I am thinking one big bike up the side over all three drawers? We will see if I get it done this summer before we move.
