Do you ever feel that you could be a better...

I have this neighbor that as lived near me since we moved to this house over 2 years ago. I am pretty sure that we didn't go to high school together and I really don't know much about her other that what I see from my yard. She does have 2 small children and she seems to be a stay at home mom like me. Why haven't I been a friendly neighbor? I don't know why, other than I hate doing things that make me uncomfortable. Would talking to her one day across the fence hurt or would taking her a apple pie make me uncomfortable? Probably not! So that is going to be my goal for this next week. Be a friendlier neighbor...



This last weekend was Emerson's b-day and my sister came down. We had been planning on doing a photo shoot with all of our kids. Ha, Ha. It was tough with 4 little ones. Here are a few that we got and that I edited...
Britania tell me what you think? Do you like B&W better or vintage or with or without textures?? I edited the pic to death. I have variations of everything.



On a somewhat different note, Does anyone watch Good Things Utah??
Last week there was a guest host on and she had a system on making a menu for 8 weeks, shopping every week, and had a little book to help with her organizing. I am going to try it. I am on a mission to be organized, because not only do you save money, you save time, and it makes your life easier (and what mom doesn't like all of that?) I am trying to work it out on paper and calendars. I'll let you all know how it turns out, only if you give me tips on how you plan and prepare for meals!! And maybe some recipies along the way.

I love the pictures all of them, with the textures and without. I will have to send you more.

Okay too many pics. to choose from! There are a few I like better than others but it would take forever to explain which pictures I'm talking about.

So do let me know how the preplanning thing goes. I did see that on GTU and thought, 'Boy, wouldn't that be nice to know what we're having everyday and have all the stuff for it already.'
Keep me posted! I'll be glad to share recipes.

Where are you learning all this fun stuff with a camera? It's time that Craig and I get a new one, but I keep reminding myself the only thing to take pictures here at our house is the dog!
