Where does the time go?

I can not believe that Chase turned 4. My baby is growing up...
We've been talking about what kind of cake he wanted for weeks and he finally decided on Alex the Lion (from Madagascar) so Tim and I did our best! I think it turned out well, plus it was worth it to see the look on his face when it was done and to get the hug for making "the best cake ever!"

We love you Chase. He's so funny because we took him to Cold Stone for ice cream on his birthday and after I read all the flavors and all the toppings to him and he told me....I want Chocolate with Chocolate Chips! He also wanted a chocolate cake and chocolate ice cream. He also got a pair of binoculars from my parents, which he loves, and when Uncle Rich came over the other day Chase asked him if he wanted to see "his knockers" (binoculars of course!)

more projects

I used the same technique from my Valentines Day wreath to make {these} cute things to hang from Kardyn's ceiling. I LOVE them.

My silly girl got into grandma's make up this weekend, good thing it washed off!

Rock on Chase!


Last week Emily visited. She and her cute family are on their way to Mexico to live for a few years and stopped in SLC for a week or so. She came and hung out with me for an afternoon. Emily was my very first roommate in College (along with 4 other girls we didn't get along with) and we've been friends ever since! I've missed you!

This is what I made for dinner last night and it was yummy! It's so easy and pretty inexpensive as well. I found the recipe on I have been loving pesto recently and needed to use what I had left. So I did a search and found these sandwiches. I bought Ciabatta rolls at Costco (like 8 of them for $4.50 or something like that) deli sliced turkey at my local grocery store, red peppers which I roasted with a little bit of salt, pepper and olive oil, pesto on the bread and fontina cheese(which was pretty inexpensive as well at my local grocery store). Then place it open faced, under my broiler in the oven for a few minutes, and there you have it!
