Ari Stumbles | 2



StumbleUpon continues to keep me entertained :) Here are a few links that I enjoyed this week!

Ever heard of rechargeable LED corks? Me either but this idea with old bottles is pretty cool!

For $65 you can get a custom portrait stamp. That means you can put your face on a rubber stamp. Not sure how often I'd use it but seeing someone's face on my snail mail would be priceless haha!

Make your own dinosaur corn on the cob holders.

Writers, keep this vocabulary wheel handy. 


I'm not a big fan of white comforters on my bed cause I'd go all OCD on it when it got dirty but this would be a sweet print for a duvet on any bed.

True love is more then just a feeling. It's an action too.This short film will probably make ya cry but it's truly beautiful.

Can you believe it's been 25 years since Pretty Woman was released? The cast gets together again to share some laughs about the movie.

These folks made a giant portrait camera for 10 bucks.

This GIF of a French Bulldog jumping off a sofa into his humans hands is too damn cute!

And one more cause I saw it today and couldn't resist sharing even though I'm not a fan of Izzy's music... Sean Hayes & husband lip-sync to Izzy Azalea/Jennifer Hudson's Trouble & are pretty spot on!!

Birthday | 10 Things you didn't know about me!


Today's birthday post is brought to you by the always hilarious Kevin Hart! Today I turn 31 and I'm not as excitamated about it as say the 10 year old me, but it's still an exciting day! It's amazing to look back at last years birthday and notice the changes in my life. Some good and some really bad but I am who I am and I wouldn't change any of it for anything!

Here are 10 things you probably didn't know about me.

1. I am a very slow eater which is probably why I eat a lot haha!

2. I speak English & Spanish to my 4-legged kids which makes them bilingual like me :)

3. I don't like coffee, hot or cold. I'm not a fan of hot beverages

4. I take a pill everyday for acid reflux :(

5. I had braces in high school

6. I'm not a big fan of cake frosting which is why I prefer cheesecakes for my birthdays ;)

7. I've lived in Texas since I was five

8. I like to sleep on my chest with no pillow

9. I have a strong Argentinian accent when I speak Spanish around my family

10. I'm 5'2, 5'3 on a good day LOL!

Cheers to another year! <3

Project Life | Wk 11


Today I'm sharing Week 11 of Project Life. I changed it up in colors as you can tell. The B&W background is still my favorite but this minty color was calling my name so I went with it. It was a good week for the most part. Spent time with my kids, cooked with Mama Carrizo and attended a friends wedding party!

I'm still behind a week but like I've said before, it's all good cause no one is grading me on this. My pace is as good as it's going to get. :)

Are you doing Project Life too?!

Weekend Snapshots | 12


Today's post is brought to you by Finnashit and bath time! My kids don't like bath time and I don't quite understand it cause who doesn't want to get a sweet massage by their human plus run around like a crazy fool after the bath? Actually, Finnashit loves bath time. We know this because he loves giving besos like there's no tomorrow. <3

So I skipped last week's Weekend Snapshots. No biggie though because the pics will be in my PL from that week! Excited to share that with you this week :)

E & I discovered a recipe for a Southwestern Casserole. I swear I had it bookmarked & now I can't find it. Anyways, E tweaked it a bit and it's glorious! What does it consist of? Corn, brown rice, black beans, chicken tenders coated with egg & Ritz crackers. Baked for what seems like foreverrr and then we add Ranch, Rudy's sissy sauce and some fritos. And then it's face hole time!!!

Remidog isn't a fan of bath time as you can see. He throws his mean mug like it's going to be the last day on earth. Not only does he mean mug but he gives us the cold shower afterwards. There's no besos no affection whatsoever. Leana Little does the same. What's even funnier is that he doesn't show us any love until about an hour after the bath haha!

E & Finnashit have been sleeping/cuddling together since Finnashit arrived. It warms the shizzle out of my heart to see my boys sleeping together so comfortably! See this post from May 2014 where they are sleeping together and Finnashit is only a few months old.

Breakfast at the Reed Casa is always ridic. E knows I LOVE breakfast! I could literally eat it three times a day, every day! It's my favorite meal of the day and I could never get tired of it. 

Remidog takes the best portrait shots! He's a bit of a camera whore sometimes and how can I say no to this face. He has the sweetest brown eyes full of so much love of appreciation! It's those brown eyes that caught my attention when he rescued us!

#AriStumbles | 1

Today I'm sharing a new series. It will be very similar to last year's Link Line-Up but with a new name. I recently started using StumbleUpon again. According to my profile, I've been a member since 2010 and the latest update was Oct. '14. I remember being really into it at first & even downloaded the Stumble bar for whatever browser I was using at the time (probably Chrome). I don't know what kept me from continuing to "stumble" but it's been fantastical finding new reads. Check out some of the links that caught my attention this week.

A colorful DIY tin can garden on a backyard fence.

Need more storage in your bathroom shower? Add an extra shower rod to the back with a few "S" hooks. So easy and yet something like this never crossed my mind haha!

Every blogger should have this HTML cheat sheet bookmarked!

Colorful idea for succulents. You can also spray paint your tin can like the first link above.

A notebook that saves your doodles & erases after a microwave experience.

20 secret tips everyone who shops on Amazon needs to know.

This sign is pretty damn awesome!

These photos of children from around the world with their favorite toys will have you feeling some type of way.

15 awesome GIF's showing dogs saying "I'm so glad you're home!"
