I just saw this today and had to share :) I LOVE these pigs!! If I had a farm I would be getting a few that is for sure!

Are they not cute!!!!

Mangalitza is a name for three breeds of pig grown especially in Hungary and the Balkans known also as a curly-hair hog.

Now all I need is a winning lotto ticket (as does everyone else in the world) and I will have me some furry little Mangalitza piglets!  Hmmm.... I think the male would be named Herbert :)

Girly goods

We are going to a little girls 3rd birthday on Sunday. Now I am usually in the boy mode for what to get when it comes to 3 year olds (since I have one) so I had to think on this one. I finally came up with what I think most every little girl needs :) A tutu!! Now I could have just gone and bought one from the store but they are expensive and not that great. So I did as any person would do and said I can make that! And so I did! Really it wasn't hard at all. Around 4 yards of tulle, some ribbon and I had it made in about an hour or two.

 I had to try it on my own daughter just to see how it looked. What do you think? She seemed to love it.

Ok I will admit this isn't a good picture, but you try to get a ten month old to stay still with a tutu on lol  I think I will be making her one very soon :)

I hope little B likes it and has many fun dress up days :)

Join The Great Kindness Challenge!::

 Join the Great Kindness Challenge!!
I think this is a great opportunity to give back a little and teach your children about being kind to others in their community. On the 13th of August this year why don't you see how many things you can check off the list of kind things to do with your children. I know I will be doing it with  mine :) Really you don't even need kids to do this :) It's a nice thing to do at any age! Here is the list !

Hope to hear what some of you did if you do do it. I will be posting about what my children and I did.

Well since I didn't do this last week I will do two today :)

I am in Love with Pixar's movie Brave that is going to be out in 2012! Finally a female lead role! From the teaser it is looking great!
 Now I just need to read the book first. The story is an old Irish tale so it should be a quick interesting read :)

Secondly I am getting into Pinterest. There are a lot of interesting things to follow and find. If you want to follow me (granted I am just starting and don't have to many things tagged) here I am pinterest

I will try to post more things soon. I just seem to be really busy lately. My son just had his third birthday last weekend and as all parents know it take a lot to put together a party :) and with the nicer weather the family is out of doors more.I have a few things that I am working on for here so don't worry more is to come!

I am liking this! I so am in the mood to go on an adventure. With living in BC an adventure is always just right around the corner. We have the best of most everything in BC. Ya I know everyone says that about where they live :) This is the next place I think I want to venture to. I haven't been over to the Island in a long while and this place in Tofino caught my eye.  Ocean Village Resort  . This place has these little cabins that look so nice and it's RIGHT on the beach. To open your door and look out onto the sea would be a wonderful wake up. To see the sunsets as you ended your day Heaven. There are a ton of hiking trails around there too. Hmmm.... just have to figure out when we can go :)
