Sunday Funday

Last Sunday my big girl Taylor went to big church with me. We came prepared with a back pack of gummy worms, a coloring book and readying books!
Doesn't she look beautiful?!
 Here we go into big church!
I love this picture because its on the same stairs as I took a lot of my wedding pictures on! Taylor did great during church and stayed busy with her book bag, she seemed to have fun, I am grateful she went with me!
 It may come as a surprise but I do have some blank walls in my house, although my brother won't believe it! I've been wanting to add something to this wall and found 3 cute little mirrors at Walmart for $15. What do you think...
 I really like them and since they are while when I re paint the bathroom one day they will go with everything...SCORE!
 It was another spring like day Sunday, here is Taylor riding her bike!
 Sisters playing in the swing set fort!
 Cherry blossoms in bloom, so beautiful!! Take that Boston!
 Sunday was also Abraham Lincoln's birthday, there are so many great quotes from him but this is my favorite. Its a great reminder to live each day to the fullest!
 This is defiantly the best new dish I have made this year, we have really been enjoying it. Its super cheesy and delicious, its called Million Dollar Spaghetti! Its from the website Spending With Pennies. It looks long and complex but its not as bad as it seems, trust me. It worth it when you take your first bite!

  3. In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook until they begin to soften, about 5 minutes.
