WOW! Summer is coming to an end! So sad. It's been a crazy and busy summer....N O T H I N G like I had planned. Visions of my summer included daily swimming and the occasional nap and snack in between. THAT'S IT. Not at all that way. It's the same thing I tried for last summer that didn't happen so I guess I will try again next summer. Eventually....eventually I will get there! Anyway-today I'm linking up with life rearranged for insta fridays! Here is a recap from our week

I took the littles for a picnic at the park and they loved it! 
I went shopping with one of my besties on Saturday! Had so much fun! LOVE her! 

We got FREE starbucks! It was well worth the drive to get! So yummy!

I found this HUGE box of poptarts that at first I thought was a GIANT pop tart....but its just a GIANT box of 48 pop tarts. What a bummer b/c it would be really cool to actually have a GIANT pop tart. 

We went to the part for some fun play time with friends.....

they refused to stop for a picture....don't they know me by now?

They did manage to talk Tabb into getting on the merry go was GREAT!

Child training bible! I'm slowly working on this......will be so good for all of us!

We went to open house.  Savannah LOVES her teacher and she keeps asking me how many days until school starts. I think she is ready! 

Jackson found a Buzz book in the reading nook. 

And Savannah made herself at home in her new classroom! 

What was your week like? Link up and tell us all about it......

Friends for Life

So as I mentioned the other day, we are currently in "move across the country mode."  It's a stressful time in our house, but at the same time it's exciting as we are trying lots of new things as a family. It also contains a great deal of sadness as I realized this is the longest we have been in one place and the longest in any state! We had some friends, some of our best friends come down last weekend to send us off with well wishes. I LOVE them so much! And I started the documenting stage of that visit....scrapping one page! LOL....I have LOTS of pictures to scrapbook but this one I am sharing today is one of the cutest! Its a Shelby, a Jackson, a Minion, a Minnie and a Mickey kinda day! AND I participated in Creative Scrappers sketch 220! LOVE LOVE LOVE this sketch! Did I mention I LOVE this sketch? I also used the Boardwalk Kit from Noel Mignon...which is sold out but there is a limited edition one if you would like one that's similar! Hope you all enjoy it! :D

On Cloud Nine!

Good morning fellow bloggers! I have been absent for a while....after I just set a blog schedule for all the world to see! I know! I'm terrible! I have good reason though! We are moving and so this summer life changing event has taken over my life! So I will probably be pretty random on posts for a little bit but HOPEFULLY soon....I can get back to our "regularly scheduled program!"

Anyway want to give a HUGE shout out to Leslie Ashe! OMGoodness! She is on the Noel Mignon design team this term and I completely ADORE her work! She is one amazingly talented friend! I have followed her blog for a while and NOW she's on the DT where my home on the web is......and so I also follow her on instagram and facebook....Hmmmm is that considered stalking? (Shhhh....don't tell her, but I'm sure she won't mind....she is super duper sweet!) Anywho this week over on the message board the design team was given the challenge to lift a message board member.....AND let's see, Leslie is a DT member and yours truly is a MB member.....hmmmm 1+1=2 and you guessed it! SHE LIFTED ME!!!! (GASP) I'm STILL on cloud 9! I am starstruck! I mean....Leslie is FAMOUS in our little corner of this hobby world and I am so honored she picked me to lift! Here is her post! GO CHECK IT OUT!
