I have been wanting to feel creative and like I have created something beautiful, darn Pinterest making things look so simple and easy when in reality they are time consuming and frustrating.

I gave a go at cookies. The icing hated me and did not want to go into the decorating bottles I swear there is a secret someone is not letting me in on. But here is the result.

Anyone else feel like they didn't quite get what they were hoping for done today?

Family Home Evening

One of my "Resolutions"/ Goals for the year is to hold Family Home Evening every Monday night, come heck or high water it will be done. Even if it ends up being a quick song prayer and ask a couple of questions to our ALMOST 4 Year old.

I must confess however, I am not the mom that spends hours plotting planning her lessons. I have been the mom that leans upon the preparedness of others that are kind enough to share their SUPERMOM (overachieverness) on the Web.

Are just some of the sites I use.

What do you do for FHE?

I am infamous for getting excited about things.

When I was 14 it was NSYNC. My sister and I got 28th row on the floor seats for Christmas, the concert however was in APRIL!!!

When I was 18 (again for Christmas) I was given a "Fly Anywhere" pass on Southwest and $100 from my parents. The planning and excitement that followed was so amazing. I plotted I mean planned the most bang for my buck. NYC- a show on broadway- (WICKED) a trip to Times Square, the Statue of Liberty Elis Island, Central Park, The Brooklyn Bridge, I did it all. It was incredible.  But again, I got the present in December and didn't pull off the trip till almost April.

I have also been know to get an idea in my head in, jump in the car and just go. Typically to Phoenix with a little planning and preparation.

What's my point? I HAD the opportunity to make a huge and exciting trip to somewhere I have never been before and somewhere that Mr. Chase and I have talked about going together since we met... Just had a couple of loose ends to finalize and then bam. I don't get to go and to add insult to injury, I am the one that doesn't get to go. Mr. Chase will still be going (granted he will be working whilst there) but he gets to go and I don't.

So, now I feel like the kid that has been promised Disneyland had her bags packed and was waiting for her ride to come pick her up and then she's told that she doesn't get to go.
