Baby Cardinal's Nest

Spring is in full swing!!! I noticed a birds nest the other day near my front door. Last year we had Morning Doves make a nest in the same place so I was excited to see them doing it again. 

We saw the mommy and daddy come and go bringing sticks and twigs for the nest. Eventually we saw little baby doves hopping around the flower bed learning to fly. It was super cute!

This morning I was on my way out to the pool to enjoy the beautiful weather we are having today and I saw a baby bird!!! 

I was even more excited that it was not Morning Doves like I thought but Cardinals!!! My grandmother loves Cardinals and has always collected things with Cardinals on it. 

When my sister and I went up to Pennsylvania for the summer we would always go around to every room in the house and count the items and to see which ones were new. We always had a great time doing that! So I am excited to share the news with her that we have Baby Cardinals out front! :) There are two of them!

While I was watching them the mommy and daddy Cardinal came to feed them. I just stood back quietly and watched. It was so neat!

I took some pictures to share with my grandmother so I thought I would share them with you as well. The babies are super cute! 

I'm excited to see them again and to see them get bigger! Gosh I just love Spring! :)

Breaking Dawn Chess Piece

Recently while I was out shopping I stumbled across these awesome chess pieces at Hobby Lobby! They totally reminded me of the Breaking Dawn Cover!!!

I didn't buy them when I first saw them because I knew Hobby Lobby usually has coupons so I went home and searched for a coupon code online. Viola! I found a coupon for 40% off one item! 

This code is still valid until tomorrow
(Code: 3175) and can be used online.
They have specials and coupons all the time so after April 14th

A couple days later (today), I went back to see if they still had the pieces that I wanted and they did. I bought them! Yay! :)

Even though the Queen is white it's more of an antique white. I went to Walmart and picked up a can of white semi-gloss spray paint to fix that. Now the Queen is the perfect color white...and part of my grass. HAHA :)

If you'd like to order your own set of chess pieces I have some GREAT NEWS! They CAN be ordered online from Hobby Lobby. I tried searching for them before but couldn't find them. However now that I bought them I have the SKU# to make it easier to find!

Here is the information!!!

Queen Finial
SKU# 605089

Pawn Chess Decor
SKU# 603605

Remember to check online for Weekly Coupons from Hobby Lobby to receive a discount on your order. :)

Twilight Tote Bag

I received my tote today that I ordered from Leppell's Twilight Central in Forks, WA!!! Yay!!!! 

I was so excited to see the CUTE packaging it arrived in. Of course, I noticed that it was Hallmark's Mary's it! Super cute! :)

Once I opened the package I squealed in excitement. This tote is sooooo me! :) 

I was happy by the size of the tote. It is definitely great for carrying your books, camera and all the goodies a Twilighter would need on a Twilight Adventure. Heck, anywhere! 

Tote compared to my purse for size

I can't wait to take it on my second trip to Forks this September for Stephenie Meyer Day. I'll be so stylish stepping off the plane in Portland! lol

The tote is very nicely made! The handles are sturdy and a great length to throw over your shoulder. The inside is also great. I was surprised by the amount of pockets! 

There are a TON of pockets all around the wall. Perfect for putting chap stick, extra batteries, pens, gum or anything you will need to carry with you. 

Inside is also a sturdy removable liner that goes across the bottom of the tote so it will hold it's shape and keep it upright. 

I absolutely love everything about this bag! It even comes with care instructions.

 I can't wait to start carrying it. The only question I have... can I order a matching wallet and accessories?! :)

If you'd like to see the other Twilight Tote Bags that you can order through Leppell's Twilight Central check them out on Facebook. 

I also want to say a special thank you to Amy of "Amy Sews" who made the bag. You are very talented. The tote is perfect and I love it! Thank you for sharing your creations with us.
