Tie Dye the slipcover for their couch????
Seriously I think I just threw up a little bit in my mouth. But if you're dying (pun intended) to try this for your self here's the link just don't tell me you did it. I don't want to be held responsible for the death of your furniture.
May this Ikea couch rest in peace literally.
Peace out!

{ So Cute- Punk Pressed Peonies! }

I love love how this flower turned out. 
It's a jumbo sized Pressed Peony that comes with the hat and look so stinking cute on! I posted it in my Etsy shop & now I think I need to go make a few more.

{ A Faux Post }

I'd like to say a big Thanks to all of you that left me Birthday wishes. I wish I could say that it was a Happy birthday but it was more on the side of a Crappy Birthday. It was so bad I wish I had this cake because seriously it say it all.
We had Ice Cream from McDucks instead.

I won't bore you with the details but let me just say that I'm glad my "30 Faux" birthday is done and over with.

Okay now on with other things, I have been wanting to put something above my "Faux" buffet table for a while now so I decided to throw some plates on the wall to see how I like them. Not sure if I'm loving it all the way, it seems to need something extra. So I guess you could say that the jury is still out on this one.
Don't mind the cute blurry (almost) nine year old boy in the picture...
I am also trying to find and get pictures printed so I can finally use these frames that I got on clearance at Target ohhhhh... about 3 years ago. Good thing I bought all 5 that they had, little did I know I would be having a surprise 5th baby! :) These are on the opposite wall next to the plates.
I'm trying to decide if I like the frames white or if I should go black.
Decisions are the worst! And what makes it even more depressing is when you don't really have a grasp on what your decorating style really is. 
I guess you could say I have
"Faux Style".

Bridget here hijacking Rachel's blog for today to wish her a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY! The gang and I baked a cake just for you!
Okay so I don't actually know them and I don't bake cakes but my mad photoshop "skillz" should count for something ;). I would have had one popping out of the cake but I'm not sure which McDreamy or McSteamy floats your boat.

Hope you have a fantastic day!

{ The Girls }

I did an impromptu photo shoot on Saturday with the girls. Just thought I would share a couple. I'm still getting to know my camera, and have decided that I need to add more moola to my "new lens fund". Someday....

I do have a Canon 30D camera body that I am thinking about selling. 
Anyone interested? 
Just email me over on the left.

{ A Little This & A Little That }

Yesterday I was a busy girl!
I made 3 batches of strawberry freezer jam, did 2 loads of dishes, 2 loads of laundry & cleaned the bathroom or maybe I should call it the latrine thanks to my 3 boys.
Then I made Chicken Enchilada Bake (YUMMY) for dinner, thanks Robin for the recipe, watched my children & 1 day care girl all while talking on the phone with my friend!

I promised I would take a picture of Miss Brinley Boo and her latest art creation. You gotta love a girl who can entertain herself with a leftover box & some paint.
This just makes me happy!
The after dinner I put these shoes on
and when for a wobble I mean a walk/jog.
 Lets just say that the jogging didn't last very long as I could feel my behind wobbling up and down as I was going and the fact that my lungs were about to burst didn't help.
I only wobbled for 30 minutes but hey, at least I got out there... That counts for something right? Thank goodness for my Mama Mia soundtrack that I put on my Ipod, the upbeat tempo was what I needed to huff this body down the road.
I seriously need to get rid of my wobbly bits....

And my Mother is going to kill me sorry Mom I had to post it... Here is my mom on day 6 after her double knee surgery.
We made a quick trip up to Tri-Cities and took her some beautiful Hydrangea's & her birthday present. She had no idea we were even coming. She's home now & is doing great!
And I just loved this picture of Mr. Parker that I took while visiting my mom.
I know I didn't do this yesterday but I was told I had to post it. I made this little lamb for Addison for Easter & she loves it! :)
And last but not least, here is a picture I took on Easter, this picture captures Corbin to a T. he just cracks me up!
Okay I better run, I just discovered that my Corbin man has decided to become a barber and cut his own hair, thank you older child who decided to leave your scissors out. I am glad he waited until after Easter to play barbershop.
Little stinker.

ETA:If you want to make a Lilly Lamb here is the link to the Etsy store where you can purchase the pattern. Click here.

{ Easter Impossible - A Comical Tale }

Trying to get a decent picture of the family for Easter? 
Recap of our Easter & all I have to say is it was long......
We went to church and got out late due to a speaker and an Easter Cantata (both of which were good) so we get out at 12:20. 
That's a long 3+ hrs, at one point Addison was dancing in the aisle which was fine, the only problem was she was ROCKING out to the song that was being sung & unfortunately it was the part where Christ was being crucified. 
I was a bit mortified.
I spent 2 hours in the nursery with 10 sugar high toddlers
(why do they put us mom's in the nursery when our kids are in there?) 
then the last hour chasing Addison around the church when all she needed was bars a.k.a. her bed. 
Church just made for a LONG day.

We DID NOT color eggs this year, the kids don't like them so we stuffed plastic eggs with candy and hide them. But then it started to rain so instead of hunting outside we had to hunt inside. I also DID NOT make an Easter dinner (ham is still in the fridge) we had grilled cheese.
I have to say I'm kinda glad that it's over and done with.
Maybe next year will be better. Maybe....
I'm just keeping it real.

{ Mom's Getting New Knees! }

I can't help but think of my Mom today. Right now as I type this she is in surgery getting both of her knee's replaced. This surgery is going to be so good for her, she has been in pain for so long. I'm waiting for my dad to call and update me on how everything is going. Just wanted to let you know that I am thinking of you mom and that I love you.

{ Peony Peony Peony... }

The Peonies now have pleats (not my own original idea
but I think I love it, as they are more "fluffy" What do you think?
Without pleats...
With pleats, I think I them they may be here to stay...
Well I better get back to my sick kids. 
I have 1 at school and 4 are home running high & low fevers and some throwing up. Good times....
