Happy 12th!

My sweet daughter turned 12 today, I can't believe how quickly time has flown! She had some friends over yesterday for a party/sleepover. We threw her a green and blue polka dot party, it was super cute! I was far less put together for this party than others in the past...I was still making frosting when the girls arrived :). Good thing 12 year olds can fill time like nothing i've ever seen!

Cooking Ahead

We love Costco! We usually only shop there once a month, so we end

it in meal sized portions. This time we decided to also make up some
freezer meals for a quick dinner!

Disappearing Act

Wow, time has literally disappeared!!! Actually, I've been having a blog identity crisis :).
I'm a self admitted blog stalker for so many blogs that I've had trouble trying to find my
own way. I've been trying to come up with a name for a blog that I can create to incorporate
being a mom, baking, cooking and crafts. Then I decided Mom Plus 6 works just fine for all
of that! So, I'm not going to neglect this blog anymore!!! I've been doing lots of experimenting
with baking and trying new recipe's that I can't wait to share.
My first project I'm super excited about comes from a blog called Simple Mom. She is doing
a 5 week spring cleaning, organize your home project...I'm so excited! If you want to participate, go check out her website I can't tell you how in the mood I am to spring clean and organize my life!
