My Favorite Night Time App

Hey everybody!  I hope all my fellow Americans went out and rocked their vote today.  I'm so glad all this election bizness is almost over and done with and we can happily move on to the next mudslinging event.  (insert sarcasm)

Anywho, lots of my Facebook friends are saying what they are thankful for each day and today I thought I would let you all know that I'm thankful for the Ambiance app on my iPhone and iPad.  The best white noise app in my opinion.  And it's free!



And my favorite sound selection on Ambiance is Rain and Thunder in the Rain category.  It soothes me and my kiddies to sleep and there have been mornings when I wake up thinking that it actually rained the night before.  :)


Oh how I have loved white noise since the days we brought my son home from the hospital.  I quickly realized the importance of white noise and finally "got it" after hearing people talk about it here and there.  Oh yes siree Bob is white noise a necessity in my home.  The kids fall asleep faster and much easier with a little background noise.

Every night when I tuck the kids into bed, I have the iPad in hand and they tell me which sound they want for the night.  Sometimes it's an ocean sound and sometimes it's a rain sound.  So far this is what they like and we have not gone past these two sounds.  Although the app has 27 different sound categories (free) to choose from and then they have their premium sounds which cost $0.99 each.  They even have an Animal sound category.  Grunting pigs or howling monkeys, anyone?  Yes, those are real sound selections. 



Another favorite feature about this app is that it has a timer.  I remember when it didn't have a timer and it would drain my battery dry.  Now I get to choose a timer when I tuck the kids into bed or when I tuck myself into bed.  Yes, every now and then I need this app to help me fall asleep.  There are nights when I have too much on my mind and I need help getting some zzzzz's. 


Anyone else love this app as much as my kids and I do?  May you all have a restful night tonight.  I suggest using this app if you need help.  :)

Glass Vase Snowman Decor {Craft DIY}

Hello peeps!  Who is still stuffed from all of the Thanksgiving deliciousness?  Or broke from those fab after-Thanksgiving sales?  I don't do the whole crazy shopping thing but I am stuffed and happy.  I got to watch lots of t.v. and in my jammies.  Woot!  

On to my latest project, except I made this last year so I'm kinda lying.  I never got to share this with you guys because of lots of computer problems.  Anywho, I made a snowman using two floral vases.



I was inspired to make this snowman after I saw another blogger make with decor with round floral vases.  She used different glitter for each vase and then topped each one with a witch hat.  It was classy and cute.  And darn.  I wish I could remember that blogger and her site. 
Well here is how I got down to business when making this snowman.

Supplies:
2 - round floral vases 1 - sponge brush Mod Podge 1 - small jar of white glitter 2 - sheets black felt w/glitter scissors craft or felt glue 2 - lids from food canisters (like oatmeal) …

Organizing da Hair Accessories

Before my daughter was born it was just the hubby, our boy and me.  I only had me to worry about when it came to all things hair.  Then baby girl came along and little by little the hair accessories, combs, brushes and everything else started to pile up and take over my middle bathroom drawer.  Up until a couple of weeks ago my hair accessory drawer looked like this:


It was so bad and I couldn't stand it any longer.  Actually it had been quite some time that I could not stand but I finally got around to organizing it.  While still on holiday vacation in early January, the kids and I took a field trip to The Container Store.  One of my new favorite stores.  Love!

After browsing, browsing, browsing and more browsing I finally got down to business.  Mainly because the kids were getting restless otherwise I could have spent the whole day there and compiled a huge wish list.  I came home with some Linus drawer organizers and after a major make-over our hair accessories bathroom drawer lo…

Easter Egg and Vase Decor {Craft DIY}

Happy Good Friday lovely people.  Easter is my favorite holiday and sadly I haven't decorated much for this Holy celebration.  I have been so busy (I'm always saying that!) and I won't dare go up in the attic to get my decorations.  The attic freaks me out so I always send the hubby to get my things; although he too is a very busy man this tax season.  Anywho, I started this craft project a few weeks ago and just finished it this morning.  Seriously.
