Country Fair

 Today was my youngest son's Country Fair. We have been working on this project and paper for weeks and it's finally done. He did a great job and did most of the work by himself. I sometimes wonder if teachers plan these projects to make parents spend more time with their kids, if so, bring it on, I love working on stuff like this with my kiddos.

I don't love this shirt under the sweater and I tried to not wear it, but it was just to darn cold today! Sometimes warmth wins out over what I think looks good.

Sweater: Gap Outlet, Jeans: Vanity, T-shirt: Wal-Mart, Jewelry: Lia, Boots: Victoria's Secret

Getting Lost

Do you ever have those days of getting lost on the web? Today was one of those days for me. I guess I just felt a little lazy and reading about other people and their lives is so fascinating that I couldn't pull myself away. I lazily read one blog after another and found myself laughing, crying and loving all the amazing stories there are in this world. People are so strong and amazing, it inspires me. Somedays are just good for getting lost.

Home and Happy?

We are home from our lovely vacation. It was the best vacation I have ever been on. We spent the week in the Western Caribbean with my entire family it was amazing. It is hard to come back to reality and get back into life. But, now that the laundry is done, the e-mails are answered, and I have waded through our pile of mail, it's on to the blog...

Here are a few pictues of our group.

If I were British I would be telling you all about my upcoming holiday, but I am American and we are going on a vacay! We have been planning this trip for 2 years! My hubby and I are taking our kids on a cruise and my entire family is going with us. We are going to have a great time and I am super happy this has all come together as planned. I have been so busy this week getting everything ready to go I have not had time to update my blog. So instead of outfit pictures I bring a picture of our ship.

I will be back in a week!

Falling for Fall

Fall is officially here, today is cool and rainy and they are predicting snow in the mountains. I am excited to pull out my fall wardrobe. (especially the cute boots I got for my birthday!)  Some of my favorite things about fall are; boots, scarves, sweaters, rain, apple pie, warm cider, pumpkin carving and the cool crisp air. What do you love about Fall?

It's that time of year, time to get our annual Flu Shots. There is nothing as exciting as dragging your children to get a shot. They love it so much (insert sarcasm) and my youngest always gets totally sick from it, something to look forward to (insert more sarcasm). I often wonder if it's really worth all the hassle. I hope that by getting this shot I really am protecting my family and not just getting them poked and making them feel terrible for no reason. What is your opinion? Does your family get the flu shot?

Spinning a Yarn

I love Conference Weekend. I love listening to the word of our leaders and spending the day with my family. I also love having a project to keep my hands busy while I listen. I am always on the hunt for something fun to make and this weekend I made a couple of things with yarn that I found on Pintrest. That site is so addicting! I enjoyed making them and I love how they turned out!
