Recap Lucas birthday

There was a request for a ninja cake.
He got a Halloween ninja cake.
I wanted it to be red but I didn't have enough red to make it red red. SO I thought I would add in some coco to make it darker bad idea, it turned it purple. Then I tried to use copper but it turned it orange.
So next time you want a solid red color just go to the store and buy a few bottles.

But the sword threw the cake was awesome!

Love ya Happy Birthday OLD MAN

My favorite things this week

Favorite things Lucas has been here!
He is off to Idaho again this week, we will miss him.
Today Mason and I went off to Women's Conference, it was wonderful to be with friends and be feed spiritually and with a yummy lunch. There were tons of left overs! So we brought home Costa Vita to our neighbors.  
On my way out of conference Lucas pulls up with new windshield wipers for my car, it was such a surprise that I needed. Not only was he doing something nice for me but he was dressed up in a collared shirt, cute butt jeans, his hair was done and he shaved. 
You see Lucas only does his hair once a week and I enjoy my Sundays! So it was a special day.

 We had Mason blessed earlier this month. It was a wonderful day!

Tuesday: Walking Tours

Over a year ago I graduated from Utah State University.
I am an Aggie threw and threw. Our doctor wore a BYU tie and my husband and I were like what are you doing?
The campus is so beautiful if ever you are on your way to Bear Lake for time on the blue waters spot and get some Aggie ice cream and take a walking tour of campus!
 The new HUGE agricultural building. Once I took a survey and one of the questions was how many cows are on you college campus. Funny enough I could answer the question 100+.

 The perfect building to make sure you look good. I've always wanted to sit on the inside during a busy time on campus and count the number of people checking themselves out.
 Hurray for blue skies we have a bad inversion in the winter so blue skies are literally a breath of fresh air
 The old ag building. This is the last place you want to be if there is an earthquake.
 A lost shoe recovered with the snow melt.
 Emily a friends use to work here we would make visits. Sad she left:(
 The best spot to hide,sit and relax. It's behind the biology building

My favorite things this week

Enter my giveaway below post

I stole this idea from my sister Vanessa of posting about your favorite things in the week.
At first I was just posting pictures but now I look for them.
I get excited when things happen and run to grab my camera so I can record the event.

 We didn't realize they were matchy matchy until later. Like father like son, how cute!

Splurging for Valentine's day and buying good food.

Lunch with Nikki

How we get so excited about gum.

Work outs with Mason. He weighs 16 pounds, the doctor said it will probably take him away to roll but we are trying to teach him.

Wednesday: Craft Time

 Visiting my mom a few weeks ago I raided her fabric closet.
We found some fun wild things and here are more of my creations!
 This is out of a fabric I made a blanket out of. 
The blanket was made up of large purple and blue squares with flowers. 
I cut them up in strips and tada!

What can I say I am a sucker for flowers

Tuesday: Walking Tours of Logan

Here we come Logan!
So the sun was out and it was a lair it was freezing.
We were only able to walk to our friends house down the street to deliver some coupons.
Here baby is on formula so we try and save any we find for there family.
Gross, crab apples frozen on the tree. 
I'm not going to lie I could smell it.
Sad signs of a summers past.
This is kind of like the people who leave there Christmas lights up until the 4th of July.
This sign remined me of a companion I had on my mission, she was sign speaking.
Anytime we found a sign like this we would knock all the doors to find the deaf child. Often the sign was outdated and the family had moved.

If I was a mailman this would be my favorite stop.

I'm sorry this wasn't the best walking tour we only made it to the Millers and back it was too cold. But be excited for more tours of Logan!

Cheap Diapers here we come!

I saw a great deal for diapers on frebies2deals
 Head on over to Walgreen.
There Walgreen brand diapers are buy one get one free, add on the 2off coupon = 2.50 ish a piece. The coupon is an in store coupon, located in the infant coupon booklet.

In the Logan store most everyone knew about the deal but my neighbors went and had problems getting the deal so make sure you ask for the $2 off jumbo diapers in the infant coupon booklet.

Also many people have asked me if these diapers are any good, the women that runs freebies 2 deals said these are her favorite diaper. We have only used a few and they are pretty good. We compared them to the Luvs diapers and they are very similar except they have a little less elastic on the back of the diaper.

In the Logan store they are out of size 2 and 3.
Make sure you get the jumbo packs, that is how you get the $2 off coupon!
We were able to get 4 packs of diapers for $10!
Make sure you comment and tell me the great deal you got!

My favorite things

This last week has been hard, very lonely.
With Lucas working in Idaho Mason and I tried to stay busy.
But what can I say I miss this man.
He is the love of my life.
We got in a tickle fight and I was screaming and kicking.
I hope our neighbors didn't think we were beating each other
Mason is learning so much!
This week he is learning to drool, starting to find his hands. It's more a trial and error thing. Also the bouncy chair! It's funny I'll put him in there and he will get mad and kick his legs and then the bouncing will calm him down. 
So here are his before legs and in a few weeks we will see how much stronger they will get! 

I found s.e.i from a coupon and I am lucky enough to have the outlet store here in Logan! They have great deals on paper, stickers and classes. They had clearance paper for $.10 a sheet. That beats hobby lobby any day. Cami the store manager was so sweet. They are going to do a couple of give aways on my blog. So keep your eyes out for yummy giveaways from s.e.i 
Free things plus a give away this was definitely a favorite thing of the week.

Happy Valentines Day

We do love you!
So our Day so far has been waking up at 3:40am to make Lucas breakfast. 
It was to early I forgot to take a picture.
I had to wake up so early because he had work at 4:30am, and unlike me who would sleep in my work clothes and wake up at 4:20 and drive to work work with one eye open Lucas wakes up at least a half hour before. Crazy huh.
When we went back to bed. 
Then Mason wanted some breakfast at 6am.
So after feeding everyone I went back to bed.
I have yet to eat my breakfast its 11:45am.

Happy Love Day

Cake Class

So this month I am taking another cake class
Flowers and Cake Design.
We learned to make our first flower this last week.
Cake Boss here I come
 This is my flower. A good first.
 And the teachers.
 Press flowers.
So there are these wilton flower presses you use to make these.
AKA don't ever buy one they are very hard to work with.
So if you want flowers buy a metal cookie cutter.
If you want a pattern then get a rolling pin with a pattern on it.
