Tutu Cute!

Maria and I had a fun time dressing my real life BABY DOLL up for some photos yesterday. She didn't seem to mind at first but after about the 5th change of clothes she wasn't so keen on the idea of smiling for the camera anymore.
Isnt she sweet??

These are just a few of my faves!
Oh how I am going to miss her sweet little face!

Junque and other stuff....

I couldn't help but redo my blog when I saw the wonderful blog banners from Polly over at COUNTING YOUR BLESSINGS . How sweet is she to offer them free. You can find the link on her side bar , amongst lots of other pretty things! Don't forget to check out her store too, she has some really pretty things there! STORE LINK

Speaking of pretty.. have you seen these GORGEOUS SHEET MUSIC PRINTS ala the sweet and very talented Natasha Burns?? I was so happy when she updated her shop and I was able to snag one of these beauties!

Make sure you stop by HERE soon if you want one , I see she has sold out of a bunch !

Wanted to post a few snippets for my partner Britt for the JUNQUE SWAP

Hope she likes everything I sent, this was a fun swap!

Where did the weekend go? This was the first weekend in along while we didn't have plans and places to be everyday. Kind of nice just to lounge at home for once. We did hang out over at Maria's on Friday night for a bit. She helped me make a teeny weeny pink TUTU for my little Hailey bug, who we are going to take photos of tomorrow. My last day keeping her will be this Friday, I am all ready a bit sad . Gonna miss her for sure! I will post some photos this week from our little shoot.

Can not believe a year has almost passed since my hubby moved over to Korea. Or that in a few short weeks we will be moving away from a place we love. Austin is quick to point out he has never lived anywhere else and I know he is very anxious and a bit nervous. I am EXCITED beyond belief that I will have my sweet husband back, but also a bit sad to move on from a place we have called home for almost 9 years now. Military way of life thats all....
I know one day we will make it back here to retire hopefully!

Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend wherever you are :)

We had a fun weekend out at PIR watching our favorite Nascar drivers. Of course Austin cant make up his mind exactly who his fave is. So he wound up getting 6 new cars to add to his growing collection and this cool new Junior Hat.
We had awesome seats this time in the grandstands and could see all the pitting action.

And when they all turned off there engines due to a red flag , they were right down in front of us, Austin thought this was way cool.

And here you have the winner who I happen to LIKE (wont say it to loud ) Austin wasn't happy that my driver!
I have been busy wrapping all my goodies for my JUNQUE IN MY TRUNK partner BRITT, in between folding laundry and sorting through tons of paperwork that needs to be gone through before we move. I don't know how we have acquired so much stuff/junk since moving in this house a little over a year ago!
I will be back tomorrow to post a few peeks of Britts JUNQUE. Till then .....

A little of this and that....

So blogging and crafting haven't happened much as of late, but I sure have thought about it! I have been busy putting JUNQUE together for my swap partner Britt.

With our move quickly approaching and still waiting on Austins medical clearance , it has been a wee bit stressful. I did get to take a break from the worry for a bit over the weekend , Molly ,one of my closest friends came into town with her family. The boys had a ton of fun hanging out all weekend. I met her , her mom and aunt at the zoo early Saturday morning with the kids. It was perfect weather for the zoo. I love this photo I took of them. Wouldnt you know the photo of us is not on my!
Here are the boys on the SKYRIDE across the zoo, they thought they were so cool going on it all by themselves!

And here's Austin(well his hand) feeding a giraffe. That was pretty fun!

I wanted to share this lovely little giveaway I won over at The Sugar SHOP, Dena is one of the sweetest girls ever .Look at this adorable fabric she gave away and I was lucky enough to win!

Here is a planter I found while on vacation in Florida , It will wind up in my bathroom eventually , for now its holding some pretty minty lace.

and some pretty new flowers waiting to be used

My days with this cute little face MISS HAILEY are ending soon. I am really going to miss watching her , she is a great baby and good company during the day. Her family is moving off to Alaska. Austin just adores her.....
Hope every ones week is off to a great start!
