Right Now Challenge: Week 42


Hello! Happy Friday, friends!

Yes, it has still been a bit quiet around these parts, but I promise ya, I am missing my blog and am trying to get BACK on the blogging wagon stat! I’ve even slacked a bit when it comes to my Right Now Challenge jot downs. It’s sad. ;) Today is Jack’s 4th birthday and so I do have a few funny things he said this morning that I wanted to remember:

  • Since today is my birthday – I’m the boss of the day! Whatever I say, goes!
  • Me: “Jack, could you please stop growing up so fast?” Jack: “I can’t Mama, I want to grow taller and taller!”

Here are a few other tidbits:

  • Sweet Lukie got his first cold. He handled it like a champ and it only really lasted 2 days (thanks to the oils that I love). It’s so hard seeing babies sick though.
  • We got our whole house painted last week and although it was a major pain shuffling kids around while they painted, it made the house look SO bright and clean! Yay!

That’s it for today! Hoping to FINALLY get the rest of my photos caught up and printed out this weekend so I can get going with my Project Life pages. I’m a bit behind, as you already know, and I want to get back to sharing! Time to get caught up!

Sending you all hugs! Have a blessed day and weekend ahead!

Right Now Challenge: Week 41



It’s Week 41 y’all! Yay! Hope you are having a great day! I got this up a bit late, but it’s up! I call that a success with my crazy schedule and life lately!

This is what I wrote down this week:

  • Jack : “I’ve got a lot of friendliness inside of me, Mama!”
  • Jack said to the lady at Home Depot – “We bought pumpkins! We found the most PERFECT ones!”
  • Luke loves granola. I found the most delicious gluten free granola and he smiles really big when you ask him if he wants some. ;)

Have a blessed day! XOXO!

October – OHDEERME kit Reveal

Happy October, friends!

I hope to be back to a more regular blogging schedule again soon! I’ve missed it! ;) I wanted to let you all know that the October OHDEERME embellishment kit from Freckled Fawn was revealed yesterday and once again – AesaLina and the rest of the gang at FF outdid themselves! I “oooohed and ahhhhhed” quite a bit when I saw this one! It’s PERFECT for Fall and I’m excited to use it very soon! I’ll be sure to share what I create!

Here’s what the kit looks like:

I even was given the opportunity to design a couple of simple flair buttons for this kit (above)! It was TOO much fun! I can’t wait to use them on my pumpkin patch photos soon since we’re going next week! Yay! I just LOVE this time of year. Fall is SERIOUSLY my most favorite of all! ;)

Head on over to Freckled Fawn HERE to see more about the kit and how you can get yours! You won’t want to miss it!

Have a great day! I’ll be back soon … promise! ;)
