Queen of the Day!

YAY!!!! I'm the Queen of the Day at DST today!! :) :) :) I am so excited and so flattered. Stop over and drop a line or feel free to ask any questions you want. Here is a little gift for all of you as well just because I'm SO excited! Use the coupon code queen627 for 50% off my entire store through Friday (6-29).

SO busy with house stuff...
We are still trying to sell our house and looking to build a new one. We spoke to a builder and have it narrowed down to 2 different house plans with some updates. The Lexington and The Jamestown. It's just amazing how much all the upgrades come to and once you figure in the cost of the property, it is just obnoxious!!! We need to figure out what we can afford and then go from there. We're going tomorrow night to see a Jamestown that is under construction to try to get a better idea of what it looks like "in person" and not just "on paper". The home builder had a model of the Lexington at their site and it was SO pretty! We actually didn't like it "on paper", but loved it "in person". Now we're seeing pros and cons to both plans and need to figure out where they fall money-wise.

Speaking of money...
Just a quick rant... Why is everything so gosh darned expensive?!?!? I swear, it is unbelievable!! I'm lucky enough to be a stay at home mom, but the "play money" just isn't there, KWIM? It just amazes me what life costs.... Okay...rant over! ;)

That's it
Just a quick blog post today. I still have to download the camera to get off the camping pictures to show all of you. I promise I'll get on that today! ;) (ooppssss...did I say that DAYS ago??!?!? LOL) Thanks to all of you for being such wonderful friends!! {{HUGS}}

Whew...SO busy!!

I know that I have been SO totally neglecting my blog. Life has been so hectic and insane! Here is the last couple of weeks in a nutshell:

~ Ava turned 2! baby girl turned 2 years old on June 2nd. It is seriously so hard to believe! We had a girly monkey themed bday party. She is just obsessed with Curious George and all things monkey! Here are a few pics for you all... (isn't her dress the cutest?!?!)

~Church things...

We had our Silent Auction this past weekend. I was in charge of the whole thing and it went very well. A TON of work goes into it, but it is totally worth it in the end. We're also planning a big picnic for the whole congregation this summer and also selling engraved bricks for a patio that we want to install this fall. Overall...just FULL of stuff to do! Bible School starts next week and Christian is going to go at least part of the week.

~ Designing & CT stuff

Some new templates are in the store and I'm working on some more. I'm having a blast with them and I just love working at Elemental Scraps! You really need to check out the store and the great designers there if you haven't already. I'll be getting some more new goodies in there next week! As for are some previews of the new stuff!

~House Selling stuff...

We still have the house up for sale. We haven't really advertised it at all except for putting a sign in the yard. We've been too busy to put the time and effort into selling it really hard and now is the time for us to step it up. We're hoping to buy the property off of my aunt that has been in my family forever. We are really hoping to buy and build a house within the next 9-12 months. Keep your fingers crossed that we can get it all figured out!

~ That's it & a coupon
