Our First Carrie Underwood Concert

The girls and I had such a fantastic time last night! It was great to have a little mom and daughter time with my favorite girls in the world. It was the girls first concert and they worked really hard to pay for half of their tickets. Thanks to our friend Lisa we had great seats. We also enjoyed dinner before the concert with some of our Wagner friends. Carrie Underwood is just as beautiful and sweet as she seems. Her voice is amazing! We had such a great time and we were NOT disappointed!

Classic Allie Move

You can laugh if you want to because I know its funny. . . NOW! I have taken few bad accidents to the nose in my life, that's why I have the nose bump! I was getting ready to go run a few errands this morning and thought I would check the girls bathroom before leaving. After leaving the bathroom, I took the corner just a little too tight and BAM hit the nose! Oh my gosh, that hurt sooo bad! I even left a mark on the wall! After the initial pain left, I went to go take a peek. Yikes! I actually gave myself a bloody nose and a little cut prove it! Why do I always hurt myself? The good hubby that I have came home and checked on me. Then we had a good laugh! I guess Allie = klutz!

Need a cute idea for your teacher? Here's a darling way to do just that. Here is the website to help you make plain jane pretzels into something adorable!

If you would like the more traditional crayon look go here (under recipes) to print labels.

What a great way for the kids to make their teacher a gift! Good luck and have fun!

Super Thursday Idea

I can't really call it Super Saturday because its held on a Thursday in our ward. This was a craft that I was in charge of. I thought it would be fun to share with you. These are flower magnets and they are super easy!

Your local Michael's will have the flowers, wire, discs, magnets, scrapbook flowers and metal. If you are doing a lot, I think its best to spray paint the flowers. Once painted you can then decorate. I did a red scrapbook flower on one. This was easy, all I did was glue a magnet on back and a flower on the front. The daisy flower I painted polka dots in a tan color. I also painted the disc a tan color to match. Then I took the wire and twisted it to look like another flower. All you do now is attach the pieces. Metal word to the disc, disc to the metal wire, wire to the wood flower and the wood flower to the magnet. Now you'll have two cute magnets to keep or give away!
