Spring Break is over

Spring Break is over and it's bitter sweet. We had a great week, even though we didnt go on any grand vacation. The kids headed up to Austin though, with their grandparents for 4 days, and had a great time there! I must say, Edwin and I enjoyed our little "mini vacation" at home for those 4 days too! I'll post some pictures later, but we went shopping at Ikea! We bought a HUGE mirror to put in our family room. When I say huge, I mean HUGE! It's the biggest mirror I"ve ever seen, and we got it for $99! It was priced for $149 in the stores, and we went home to measure the space etc. We pulled up the mirror online to double check the measurements, and it was priced $99 online! The funny thing is, you can't order online. What's up with that?! SOOOOO, we went back to the store (added a few more items to our list!), and told someone it was $99 online. long story short, they honored the online price, even though we didnt really have any proof. How great is that?! GREAT. We also got a great bookcase for our playroom. I still have to buy some baskets for it, but it looks so good! Again, i'll post some pictures for you later! Once the kids got back home, we ventured to the zoo one day and took my nephews with us (Seth and Zane). It took us longer to find a parking spot and get to the zoo, then the time we actually spent at the zoo! Okay, not really. But it was insane! Of course the kids had a great time together, and that makes it worth it. The kids also had TWO new cousins born during the break! Quinn and Jackson. We were able to see both babies and mommies, and everyone is doing great. I"m saying great a lot in this post. It certainly makes me want to have a baby even more. I think Edwin was afraid of this happening; haha! 

Well, thats all for now. I posted my Menu Plan and our dinner rules over at my foodie blog. I changed the title (with the help of Edwin!), to "Ya Get What Ya Get, and Ya Don't Throw a Fit". Go here, to see my menu and rules post. 


  1. It sounds like a wonderful break Michelle! I just love IKEA!!! I can't wait to see pictures!


  2. Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog!
    Your family is beautiful. :)

  3. I'm so glad you and Edwin enjoyed your break.....we had a great few days with the kids! Thanks! It was quite a week with the arrival of the 2 precious babies....I understand how easy it is for you to get "baby fever!"
    Oh, and again.....the mirror does look awesome! It really added some drama to the room. Keep up the good work. Love yall~ Mimi

  4. Can't wait to see pictures of the mirror and bookshelf. I love Ikea too. It's a good thing there isn't one close to us. I don't think Nathan would appreciate that.
