sounds of sunday

valentines sounds of sunday
my favorite musical ever
is notre dame de paris
my best friends hubby showed me a video of the play
and i thought it was sooooo good.
im such a nerd.
so in this song belle
they are all in love with esmeralda
and they are just singing their little hearts out
about it.
{here is the theatrical version}

garou is absolutely adorable
here here here are some super ultra cheesy vids
but you can close your eyes
snuggle up to that special someone
and listen to his amazing voice
or if you are in the boat im in
{which is an awesome boat}
watch it by yourself and be perfectly content :)

good times with gary the snail

last summer christian adopted a snail
that he found at simeons house.
gary was his name.
gary lived a whopping 2 weeks
i really didnt think he'd last a day.
looking at these pictures
make me so ready for spring/summer.
i can barely stand it.

i really struggle in the winter time
and now that i work all day
its been super hard.
i am definitely a sunshine girl.
this has saved my butt.
i swear it works!

i highly recommend it for anyone
feeling the winter blues
it will make you feel like this...

what makes you happy in the winter time?

to spruce things up a notch or two
or like ten.
here are a couple
fun ideas that are making my list...

and this little number, smitten.

family home evening you are a pain in my butt {sometimes}

i try my darndest to do family home evening regularly.
my kids are crazy for bowling
and seriously they want to go every monday.
sometimes pulling of FHE by myself can
be enough to put me in the crazy house.
last night we had 2 huge meltdowns
a bowling alley that was closing early in 10 minutes,
which caused 2 more huge meltdowns.
then finally we made it.
to a bowling alley.
the kids had a great time as usual.
and it was worth the pains in my butt to get us there.
