2013 - ch-ch-ch-changes -

This past year has been a big year of change for us!!
BIG CHANGE - Selling our homes and moving to Arizona.
I find I no longer have the time or drive for a blog.
(I also realize that my blog header says  " a slice of life in the Pacific Northwest"  so would have to fix that too!)

ANOTHER change is that Lauren's MIL and I are starting a new company:
The Wedding Godmothers... you can check us out here: 


Between: family, work, my mother, starting a new company, a goal of making something from my 4,395 pins on Pinterest a week, family (it's growing you know)....I am going to have to take a little hiatus...

I will be posting a blog on The Weddinggodmothers... for now it's wedding info... but you never know it might get personal! ha ha

As much as I can, I still check up on my blog friends!!  Can't live without checking up on you guys and seeing what you are up to!

I am wishing all my family and bloggy friends a happy, healthy and joyous 2013

Our Cookie Party

I have been too 'busy' to blog... and here are a few of my favorite people to explain why I would rather spend time with them than on the computer....
Here is our first Cookie Baking Party... we sure enjoyed ourselves!.. and each other
Pinterest fail 
Everything was AMAZING And really really good... such a fun fun day.
(apparently it doesn't really really mean anything unless I say it TWICE)  ha

It's fun to have the time to make things again!!!
easy-peasy little nutcup for your Thanksgiving table
Here's all you need: sugar cones, a cup of HOT water, microwave and a pencil or screw driver for shaping.
Place your cone, pointed side down, in a cup of HOT water for 20 seconds
Put in the microwave for 20 seconds.  Take it out immediately and shape the end using your 'shaper tool'.    Let dry and...
 you have a cute and easy Cornucopia nutcup!
Happy Thanksgiving... I am so thankful for all my family near and far, friends near and far, the Military and Missionaries near and far.  My hope is that we can all enjoy a calm peaceful day of reflection with those we love with thankfulness in our hearts.

NOT under control

I am still not able to get this life under control and blog consistently, yep... being pulled in too many directions.  Not a complaint, just a fact.
I did want you all to know that I had an experience last Friday that makes me fully aware that I am in Arizona.
Yep saw me one of them scorpions... in the bathroom... a large one, scorpion, not bathroom.
I ran like crazy.

Welcome to Arizona Lisa.

Sedona in October

Honey, I want one just like this ...with Pumpkins to last all year!  (reminds me of my Half Moon Bay home!)  Well let me just say that out here in the AZ heat... they would have to be ceramic.  
We had a fun trip to Sedona---
Here's King Derek!
 and the whole family,well almost.. without me and Uncle Eddy.. (we're both so camera shy!)
 So Arizona/Sedona in a nutshell: 
The Peppers
