Quality tomatoes results

I'm happy to report that I finally have ripe red tomatoes. That is the good news. The bad news is that at this point I'm so attached to them that I have named then and I may bronze them because it seems wrong to eat a family member. Lol. I'm kidding!

I have a tun of free giveaways by Loresal including true match foundation, voluminous smoldering eye linner , colour Riche lip balm , age perfect , youth code, performance , ever pure shampoo , magic lumi, false fiber lashes, and nail polish. As if that was not enough I also have hellmanns with olive oil, lipton tea, and a free year of RedBook and a cute tote to take it all home in. Now that's a party!! I have food and drinks and make up and friends and music and what more could a girl ask for. :-).

RedBook happy hour house party !

I could just about pee myself!!! I just got my House Party supplies for RedBook magazine and it is jam packed full of uber cool stuff to give away with no strings attached. For starters you will get a free subscription to RedBook for a year. I just love it! This is the best! I'll tell you all about the products and already I can tell I have a new fav lip balm. They even included three recipes that I'm totally making for my party. I can't wait for my party . RedBook is one of my fav mags ever. This months cover is Kelly clarkson ! She has lost weight and found love, talk about getting stronger alright !! RedBook also has 15 snacks that make you slim, and sexy hair for lazy mornings. They are also talking about how you can host your own house party.
I noticed a article about happy reunions in honor of the 4th of July and the vets coming home that I can't wait to read. At my party I'm going to have peanut butter cup brownie bites. Find it on page 138 in you RedBook ! Can't wait. !!!

DIY granite island counter top

I'm the kind of person who loves a good project. I had the idea to change the location of a few counters in my kitchen, I was scared but that didn't stop me. So I went to the store and I picked up the supplies including: sand less grout, tile, floor cleaner, wood trim , nails, and the likes. I started by slowly removing the counter that was attached to the wall and then I separated the counters from each other. I had to clean the hard wood floors and that took some time but when I was done I relocated to cabinets into the new locations and then I reattached them. I then had a new island. I put a 3/4 inch think ply wood on the top of the counter top and then I added the tile and some cute support brackets. To finish it off I added some trim to the edges. I'm very happy with the project and I feel like a handy chick!

Fathers day gift ideals

So what do you get for the man who has everything? Our oldest child made a painted pot for her daddy in art camp. The two younger children will more then likely make a drawing or card for him. I gave him the children after all :-). For fathers day we give him the one thing that money can't buy, time with us to spend in the manor of his choosing. For mothers day we always go to the local zoo and for fathers day we go to the reinasaunce fair grounds. We spend time together as a family just walking around and seeing the sights.

I do have a huge surprise in store for him this year but I can't say what it is just yet. ;-). I hope he knows how much he is loved.

Up date: I got him a bike!! He loves it. It's a Honda shadow ace!
