While out walking in my back yard, I was surprised to discover a skeleton. Don't worry is wasn't the least bit gruesome or scary.

The other day I posted about going out to the yard with my camera. I only talked about the guy working on replacing the grass so today I'll show you some things I saw.
While not everyone is happy to see them, dandelions always make me happy

It's time for another addition of Pioneer Woman Wednesday. Lets see, what do I have to show today.
Last week I showed the pans I bought. I mentioned that the set I got came with some utensils and baking dishes. It actually was supposed to have 2 different sized baking dishes but when I opened up the box the smaller of the two was broken. I had tried to get a replacement but Walmart was not very cooperative. They said that because it was a special deal there wasn't anything they could do unless they had the same set in stock at the store, which of course they didn't. I could have returned the whole thing but it had been a good price for just the pans alone so I just dealt with it.
I do like this dish and it comes with a plastic vented cover. I think this might be a 2 quart size dish.

The last few days have been absolutely beautiful. Yesterday morning I thought I would take advantage of it and go outside with my camera. I was out in the back yard crouched down taking pictures of something growing in the grass when I heard a voice. They are starting to work on replacing the grass that was dug up in all the yards last year when they replaced the gas lines. I started walking towards the man and he said "don't take a picture of me, you'll break your camera." Then he asked if I could move my car. Last year they had dug from the road to the house along the edge of my driveway. He needed me to move the car out of the way so they get their equipment in there to get the dirt ready to plant the grass seed.
I couldn't resist taking a picture of him through the window when I went back inside.
He was wrong, he didn't break my camera at all.

It almost slipped my mind that today would have been mine and Wade's 16th anniversary. We were married in 2006. Happy Anniversary in heaven Wade.
This is a repost from 2019
On April 22, 2006 Wade and I were married. Today I celebrate the anniversary of that date alone.
Can someone please tell me why I always get caught with the weirdest looks on my face?
This was the group shot with some of my family.

Today I've got pots and pans. Years ago I contemplated purchasing a set of Pioneer Woman cookware. Walmart had the set at a pretty good price but like any other purchase over $50 I hesitated, contemplated and procrastinated. When I finally made the decision to go buy them they had raised the price and I changed my mind. Turns out I made a good decision because when I finally did buy a set it came with extras that weren't included the first time around.
I can't remember what the other color choices were when I bought these but I liked the red.
Also included with the set was a cast iron skillet
There were baking dishes that were included as well but I'll save those for another post. I can't remember if there was anything else included or not. I absolutely love these pans though and I'm really glad that I decided to buy them.

I had heard about diamond painting a while back. I have even looked at kits to give it a try but never saw anything I really liked. Recently, while browsing on Amazon, I came across a kit for diamond painting keychains. The size of the project appealed to me. I would be less likely to give up half way through completing it. Since this came with 10 keychains in the kit it would also provide gifts.
This is half the kit. It came with 5 different hearts and the other half had 5 different butterflies.

Amanda had sent me a text message saying that she knew what she wanted for her birthday this year. (it's not till June but no sense waiting till the last minute.) Any way, she said she wanted flowers this year to plant outside. She specifically mentioned roses and that she liked yellow ones.
The very next day I went to work and we got our delivery of Easter flowers in. Can you guess what was included in the delivery? Yep, yellow roses. They're the mini roses and I know that's not what she was talking about but I couldn't resist buying these for her.

So that stack of paper pieces I showed you the other day got put together to make a cute little Easter treat. This was a free cut file from My Scrap Chick
This is the bunny Hershey bar wrapper.

What shall I show you today?
Well since sometimes I don't always feel like I measure up to people's expectations of me, I'll show you that Pioneer Woman always helps me measure correctly.
There is this set of measuring bowls. At first I didn't think I would use them very often but I find myself reaching for these a lot.

So I mentioned the other day that I had gone to the craft room and gave my Cricut a workout. This was some of the pieces I had cut to work on,
Tomorrow is Pioneer Woman Wednesday, but I'll be back on Thursday to show you what I turned that pile of paper pieces into.

What's Easter without some eggs. I could hard boil some and then color them but I decided to do my eggs a little differently.
I bought these extra large plastic fillable eggs at Dollar Tree. They have a clear plastic top and a small design on the side.
