Project!... and... 30!

It isn't often these days that I get to work on a crafty project.  I know there are lots of moms who work from home and/or craft... but I just have a hard time justifying spending time on crafts and such when I have these two amazing girls at my finger tips!  Though I don't always feel like playing "The Lion King" (among other things)... I try to do my best to be attentive (but hey, I'm not perfect!).

Recently, one of my friends from growing up (who happens to be my cousin!) got engaged!  I am super excited for her.  I was asked to be in the wedding, however, being that she's on the west coast and I'm on the east coast, I'm not sure how that's going to work out.  (There are many factors involved in the decision making process)   But in the meantime, I am lucky enough to help plan her bridal shower!  It's kind of a last minute thing because she and her fiance got engaged only a couple of weeks ago and they are going to be in town in a few days.  Her mom, sister-in-law, my mom and, of course, myself have been working hard to prepare.  I am hoping it all comes together nicely... and I will be sure to post about it.  Can't promise it will be timely, but I'll do my best!

I have these gems reserved for something special....

You'll have to check back in after August 10th to see the finished project!

In other news, I turned 30 this past Saturday!

I haven't uploaded pictures yet, but I did get these flowers from Cory and the girls on Friday.
Eloise helped pick them out... she knows yellow is my favorite!

My wonderful sister and her lovely daughter came over on Saturday morning to watch the girls so Cory and I could go out for Breakfast and do some grocery shopping together.
Can you believe it was only the 2nd time since Eloise was born that we did anything, just the two of us?!  It was really, really nice!

Saturday evening was spent celebrating my grandpa's 80th birthday with family.
Sunday was a nice little get together at our house for lunch with my parents and my sister's family.
I am blessed!

And of course, here is a quick shot of the girls.
Dinah is trying desperately to crawl... and Eloise loves that they can "play" now that Dinah is sitting up and cruising around in her walker.

I must say it again...


  1. Love you!!! :)

    give the girls a kiss for me!

  2. happy 30th!!! So nice you got out just the two of you!


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear what you have to say!
