A couple weekends ago we made a trip up to the gardens. We hadn't been there in months and the girls love going there. Since Caleb had to work anyway, it gave us a good opportunity to make the trip. I got a couple of okay pics of the girls by themselves, but when I tried for one together...well you can see for yourself...

...oh my. Aren't they so cute? Little stinkers couldn't sit still for one second.

Today is another backwards Works-For-Me-Wednesday. I missed the last one so here is the question I wanted to ask. I have over 1000 least...and would like to know where the best (and also frugal, if possible?) place would be to get them printed. I have tried both online and in store and like how they both turn out. I have just slacked off and not had them printed in...well, a really long time. Also, if there is a place that has a really good upload tool that doesn't take a day and a half to upload all of the pics, that would be even better. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

For more great advice head over to Rocks In My Dryer.

As of Tuesday I no longer watch Toby and Natallie. Their mom was let go from her job after 7 years of working there and consequently we have been let go of our job. Big time bummer.
So instead of dwelling on the negative aspects of that, I got to work on one of my projects that I had put on hold. I have a bunch of paint that I buy when they have mistints and decided to put some to good use and work on my laundry/half bathroom.

I painted stripes on the one long wall in there to try and elongate it and make it look bigger than it is. Plus the wall was in horrible shape. I had to either do a texture on it and since that would have required going to the store, I decided to try to paint stripes on it. They aren't perfect, but I think it looks so cool. I also painted the vanity in there to match the cupboards. Now I just need to get a new countertop to replace that hideous orange one.

I am also going to Lowe's today to try my hand at building a shelf like thing. It is going to go back in the corner in next to the washer and dryer. I want to be able to set my laundry basket on it and other miscellaneous items. We'll see how awfully, horribly, very bad I am with a screw driver. :)
