Project Life

So what is this thing called Project Life? It's a new way to scrapbook! It's looks easier and cheaper than traditional scrapbooking! I think whats best it's better for young moms and other very busy people who want to still enjoy keeping all their memories tucked away in a album! It's great because it requires so little time that you can focus on journaling and picture choices that my albums normally lack because my sole focus is on the creative end of it's to the point lately where I don't even want to think about attempting to put a page together I just need to gather all my pictures and stories together in one place for safe keeping...(says the busy expecting mother who already has a toddler!) I am so busy there is no way I can keep up doing the scrapbooking the traditional way. Here is a link to this wonderful new world of scrapbooking!

Here's an example from the website for project life of what you can do with's simple but it's neat, organized, and actually pretty!  They offer different styles of pockets, different paper inserts and different binders so you get choices but no more buying stickers, ribbon, photo tape, glue or even using scissors!

The BIG move!

Loving my new kitchen, it's bigger and has tons of cabinet space. The last house we lived in had no storage at all, it was quite terrible. I also can enjoy keeping my counters pretty clear since I have so much space in my pantry to store all those things you barely use like (blender etc.) I only get them out when we use them now. Anyways its also nice to not have the galley kitchen we had last time because my two year old can run around and play in the kitchen while I am cooking and it's not a problem like before (she even has room to ride her Little Tikes Cozy Coupe around the kitchen and she pretty much does it everyday now too).

Well we've moved from Hawaii all the way to Florida (hence the BIG move!). It's been a journey that is for sure from moving to the island pregnant with my first baby and moving away from the island pregnant with my second and bringing a child back to the mainland that we didn't have before we moved there. It's interesting how fast a family can grow and how much a family can change in such a short period of time! I will say being pregnant and in your third trimester and moving into a new house was one of the hardest things I have ever done especially since I had a toddler to look after at the same time! Well we made it and we've got a beautiful home that is well organized and pretty much ready for our new edition to the family coming this August! I have done some major cleaning out in our house (gotten rid of TONS of things), I am operating under the "Less is More" theme for now whew I am tired of having TOO MUCH STUFF. We've reorganized EVERYTHING in our home since we moved to and I gotta say it's all working alot better for us. I keep my house cleaner and clean it up faster than ever before which is GREAT since a new baby is coming home soon!
