I can honestly say I love children. I want so many of my own. Until I have my own I get my children fix from babysitting, which I really enjoy. So all you who have children and ever need a helping hand please call. So how do you entertain two year old boys. By watching Monsters Inc. three times, building a long train track and setting up the trains (ok I have to be honest and say I think I enjoyed this more than they did)
Their mom Amy Worthington painted their room with Lightening McQueen and she did such an awesome job. I fell in love with it. The best is that they are always dresses alike which makes them so cute right now!
Anyway I had a great night!

My other great treasure that I am all about right now is these FEED bags. My mom was given one as a Christmas gift and I went crazy over it. I just had to have one! They are these reversible bags that are for such a great cause. Inspired by the aesthetic of the bags of food distributed by World Food Program, the FEED 1 bag was created. It's a reversible burlap and cotton bag stamped with "FEED the children of the world" and the number "1" to signify that each bag feeds one child in school for one year. I love my bag. It has been so great as a purse and I love that it has helped feed one hungry kid. Check out the organizations websites if your interested. I am definitely putting mine to good use!

Thanks to Ikea (ok I admit I really like getting some things there) we got a few things to help make the laundry room come together. The light fixture, steel rod, cabinet, and shelves.
I had this brilliant idea (which turned out to just be a pain) to make the blinds for the windows. We picked out this fabric that was perfect for the laundry room. Once they were all done I wasn't loving them with the paint and the stripes but hey I had to use them after all the time and effort.
With just a few organizing bins it was finished. So the finished product looks so much better than when the project started.
