what beautiful pictures

A friend of mine sent me these pictures that she took of my kids. I absolutely love them. This one of Brogan just captures his curiosity so well. Anything that has to do with bugs and he's there.

and how can you resist this guy. How could he ever be bad?

web shop fever

Well I finally got back the graphics for my website from the wonderful man who is doing all the design work for me and let me tell you........IT IS GORGEOUS!!!!!! I cannot wait to get this baby up and running. I don't think it will be on the 4th , but I'm hoping it will be in the next 2 weeks. There's alot of loose ends to tie up and I have to get a better camera to take pics of my bags. Until then...STAY TUNED, because I will be having a give-away a day the three days leading up to the grand opening. I'll be posting next week and giving you all the details. xoxo

The Wedding

The wedding is over and it was beautiful. Here are some pics of everything. They got married on the steps facing us. My husband carved the pumpkins to make a personal touch for them. I think it turned out nice. I was soooo stressing that everything would not look good, but it all came together.

I glittered a ton of little white pumpkins and lined the fireplace mantle with them and white lights.

These are (obviously ) the table centerpieces. I used double stick tape on the votive's and wrapped corn husks around them. I also used more little glitter pumpkins.

and this was their party favors. I made 90 caramel apples. day!!!! My pic is crappy but the card says " Amy & Joe The apple of each others eye! " I'm glad the day is done now I can sleep!

Fall Fun

We took the boys to this great little place called "Fox Swamp Farms" last weekend. I needed to pick up all the pumpkins and mums for the wedding. I just love that place!
Austin picked out his pumpkin
So did the little man
Okay, I know I'm biased because I'm his mom, but seriously ain't he a beauty!!!
We got to go on a wagon ride to and from the pumpkin fields.

It was a hit with Ean.
We were one boy short (he was with his friends) but it was a wonderful family day!

Cleanin' Up!

My sewing area is a mess. Well it used to be anyway. On Saturday I took big boy to his football game ( end score 21-7 WAY TO GO BULLDOGS! ) and on the way I spied this little beauty. It was instant love...and for 15$ it was mine!

I brought her home and gave her some TLC. I ripped out the old shelving and replaced the UGLY white handles with prettier ones.

this was the shelving......UGH!

Then since I was feeling so adventurous I tackled this.....I mean can I yell at my boys about their room when my sewing area looks like this?
look at her now. Ain't she lovely!

I organized all my tools and put all my odds and ends in jars. I even hung up my embroidery hoops on the other side.

so organized
I hope I can keep it looking this way!

I'm sure my husband hopes so too :)
