Ralph's 33rd Birthday

Eeeeek!!! Its one more Day until Ralph's Birthday Month (May 30th is the actual day).....I've already been Planning!!! I really had to get my Creative Juices following this year because I had No idea what to get him!! Last year I got him Pilot Lesson's so he could learn how to fly airplanes, how do you top that?!? This year I decided to make a lot of Homemade gifts and put more thought and detail into his Birthday!! I have finally finished one Project tonight and I'm sooo tempted to give it to him early....but I wont!!! I scored some super amazing Red Sox Tickets....So it started there!! I went to CVS and raided the Candy isle. Bought a Poster Board and got to Printing..... The End Result!!!

Who would have thought it would be so hard to plan a Vacation!?! I want a "Time Out" time just for Ralph and I....Oh and our Two Lovey DOGS!! So I want to be somewhere on the Ocean, somewhere Remote, somewhere Romantic, somewhere we can rent bicycles, Tour Light Houses, Go Sailing, stop in little shops and buy cute little things... oh and Somewhere that TAKES DOGS!! The options have been slim pickings and I think our best bet would be to Rent a House opposed to a Hotel...Which I like a whole lot better ;)... Destination has finally been decided on Martha's Vineyard but now to find a House to rent during "Tourist" Season may be a bit Tough......  And with a Not well thought out Organized Plan....This May be Us.....

This is what we have to look forward too....Come on July!!!!

Click To Vote For Us @ the Top Baby Blogs Directory! The most popular baby blogs

Today was such a Nice day!!!! It was the Perfect Sunday....Sunny and Warm. I did some yard work, Ralph did a few things around the house and washed his Truck & Harley. I spent most of my day tackling another room in our new house....The Sun Porch! I'm so excited to have finished this room...the weather is getting soooo Nice! The ceiling needs to be finished but for the most part it is done...I went to Pier One and bought the most adorable Summer dishes, The Cutest flower Napkin holders...Lowes had an Amazing Palm Tree that I had to have!! I also made a Hula Hoop Chandelier...I was so Excited to make this... I wanted my Sun Porch to have "Romantic" Lighting... The setting is "Romantic" out there to begin with....There is all woods in my backyard, crickets and birds singing....The Sunsets behind the house and the Breeze blows right through the whole area.

The Hula Hoop Project:

I went to the Dollar Store and bought a Hula Hoop for a $1 then I went to AC Moore to get some Romantic Lace that I would cover the hula hoop in and also to use as the hanging pieces.... The Three rolls of Lace were also a $1!!! SCORE! I had "icicle" white lights in a Christmas Bin in the basement so I pulled those out and also my Hot Glue gun....Wrapped the lights around the hula hoop and covered up the purple and pink hula hoop with the lace! Hung it and Wholla!!! A Magical Romantic Super Cute "Hula Hoop" Chandelier!!! YIPPEEEE

Here are some More Pictures of our Sunday.....

Yogurt Pops

                   YOGURT POPS

So it's Friday and the warm weather is Rapidly approaching. It's time for lighter meals and healthier eating. With that said I decided to put my "Cake Pop" pan to good use. I bought a container of Fat Free Strawberry Yogurt and placed it in a plastic baggie for easy pouring. Clamped the cake pop pan with the two yellow rubber clips it came with...Filled the cake pop pan (Make sure you shake and bang on the table or you will get air bubbles) and add some pop sticks when they are full. {Freeze} They are ready in an hour...Depending on how cold your freezer is. Once you take them out the top lid will pop right off. If they stick you can fill up your sink with warm water and place pan in the water just for a few seconds. Then you have DELICIOUS Yogurt Pops!!!! A nice Healthy Spring/Summer Treat!! I have to admit I am making a batch dipped in chocolate then refreezing on a tray....Have a little Fun....Without the Guilt!! I will let you know how they come out!!
