Wow! There has been so much going on around here, so I may have been slacking in the blogging department.
O.k.- I’m definitely slacking.
I just wanted to share a few things that have been going on around here, as well as a few things that are coming up!
First up, We went back “home” to visit our family in early July- my brother got married. This picture was taken at my in-laws, and I love it. Such a great time relaxing with family and friends! I also got my hair cut that week and had enough to donate to Wigs For Kids!
For awhile now, my most wonderful husband has been training for the “Air Mobility Rodeo” which is an international flying competition, basically. He’s been working his tail off, and it finally ended yesterday. The honor of competing also came with the task of studying and practicing A lot. I’m so proud of him ;-) Yay husband!
While he was gone this week, my Aunt and Grandmother came to visit Nate and I. We had so much fun! We went shopping, had lunch at The Cheesecake Factory, and dinner at Pei Wei. And Nate’s favorite part of the visit had to be the time we spent at the Lakeshore store! I love when family visits, and I am always sad to see them go.
I also have some exciting giveaways and features going on! Did you see me here? That’s right! I had the privilege of being featured on Pulp Sushi! You should totally stop by her blog, or her Etsy shop. Look at this necklace- I <3 the colors.
I was also here. Karen at Home is one of those blogs that you just NEED to bookmark so you can reference it often. Such wonderful recipes and home decorating tips. I am going to be making this recipe for Bruschetta Chicken Bake very, very soon!
Moving right along- I’ve been working on a few new things, which I will share more about in a new post once Russ is home and can take some pictures for me. I have a few relaxing items for mom, and a new way to organize your diaper bag!
I’m taking a e-course with Ashley from After Nine to Five. The course is Blog 101 and it’s about finding your bogging style, and making that work for you. I am really excited to take this class and meet new folks! Should be a great time. I think there are still a few spots left, so hurry if you are interested!
And when I am not sewing, visiting family, having family visit me, writing features, hosting giveaways, taking e-courses, going to weddings, or cheering on my husband- I have been chasing this little guy.
Or helping him wash his car.
So what has your summer been filled with?
