I am pretty new to the blog world, so when I discovered this blog party I thought it would be fun to give it a whirl and meet some new people. 

This is me, I'm Tiffany.

I love Jesus, my family and pretty much everything DIY. This blog is a combination of the three, not necessarily in that order. For a little more about me, stop on by the THIS IS ME page. 

I have the cutest 10 month old daughter and most genuine husband. I love life and am thankful for all blessings God has given me. My little one loves her daddy, avocados, and exploring whatever she can get her teeny tiny fingers on. He loves her (and me), bike riding, cooking, and playing video games when he has a minute. 

Feel free to browse around. Hope you find something that inspires you. Thanks for visiting my little space and blessings to you! :)

On the fourth, I officially hit the quarter of a century mark. God has blessed me more than I can even fathom and I am thankful for each moment he has given me thus far. I must admit though, this birthday left me feeling extremely spoiled. I am not really one for gifts but this year it was really fun opening them. Maybe it was due to the fact Ricardo actually kept it a surprise (he is the worst at surprises). Or maybe it was the beautiful weather getting to my head. Who knows, anywho, I relished each moment of my day. It started with Ricardo surprising me by taking the day off from work for an impromptu beach day in Santa Cruz. Did I mention I LOVE the beach? I was unsure of how our little one would fair the 2.5 hour drive but she did amazing! We walked along the shore, browsed some thrift stores and enjoyed downtown. 

yes, he did the 90s jacket 

We had a blast, as you can tell and I am grateful for another year. I had to wait until the next day to open the rest of of my gifts from him and my mom but it was well worth the wait. 

To say thanks to all those who showered me with presents, (Ricardo also planned a birthday dinner with friends the Saturday prior) I designed this little post card. It measures 5.5" long by  4" high. Doesn't everyone like getting more than junk mail in their mailbox and more personal than a Facebook message?

Each year our church does a People Hunt, in lieu of an East Egg Hunt, which entails children going in search of church members, all of whom are armed with some sort of gift or candy. This is will be my first year, so I am not sure exactly what to expect but it sounds like fun and children are always entertaining. The trickiest part so far has been trying to figure out what to arm myself with, besides the usual chocolate bunny. While rummaging through Google in search of the perfect Easter treat that does not account for too much sugar, yet still meaningful, I stumbled on the family online website. If you are looking for a way to teach your children about Easter, I would definitely check out it out.

The site boasts a recipe for cookies that takes you through the resurrection of Christ, with the intentions of making them with children the night before Easter. How cool is that? Obviously, I cannot take random children to my house and bake with them but I still wanted to incorporate this idea of telling the resurrection through cookies, which lead me to designing this little printable. Like the site suggests, it states the ingredients of the cookies with its correlation to Easter, all in a pretty little to go package.

Here is my abridged version of the ingredient meanings:
Nuts, Beaten like Jesus by the Roman soldiers, John 19:1-3
Vinegar, Jesus’ final drink, John 19:28-30
Egg whites, Pure like Jesus without sin, 2 Corinthians 5:21
Salt: Tears shed by Jesus’ followers, Luke 23:27
Sugar: Sweetest part of the story: Jesus DIED because he LOVES us! John 3:16
Go ahead, take a bite. Missing something? (The cookie has a hollow center, so fun!) Surprise! Jesus’ followers were, too! The tomb was empty! Jesus is alive! Matthew 28:1-9
To find the recipe and complete instructions, click here. I have not yet made these cookies, as I do still have a FEW days before Easter, so hopefully they will turn out yummy.
