I’m still here – just been a little busy. ;-) Here’s a glimpse of what I’ve been a little preoccupied with.
I remember when she was just starting pre-k and now here she is…ready to enter Jr. High! All grown up, and I must say, I am very proud of this young lady. Congrats! XOXO

To celebrate a special “milestone” in her life, I was happy to continue a tradition I started for all of the girls in our family – Women’s Day. I took her to The Cheesecake Factory, gave her a long…letter full of advice about growing up into a young lady, and showered her with gifts. It was indeed a special day. <3
I was also busy discovering some delicious NEW places…one being Gordy’s. Thanks to my SIL, I have found a new place to get my sweet fix. :-) BTW, they have the most amazing Peanut Butter Bars that remind me of elementary school, and they are perfectly named “Lunch Lady”.

And, it’s been 30 years since I’ve been to one, but I finally made it to a drive-in theater to watch Brave with our little one, our nephew and our extended family. What a wonderful experience (would have been more enjoyable if I wasn’t sick and pregnant – LOL).
The Hubby and I have been in “nesting mode” and have been cleaning and organizing like crazy. Here’s a look of me consolidating all of our scrapbooking/crafting supplies.
Organizing, organizing, organizing…
In the midst of all this, my best girlfriends managed to surprise me with a lunch/baby shower! For those of you who really know me, pulling off a surprise goes down as one of the most impossible things to pull off. LOL I have the most amazing friends!
“Welcome Aboard” theme – love it!
And yes, I’m just growing bigger and bigger as the days and weeks go by. I am close to the finish line and cannot wait to see my little bundle of love soon. <3
Getting ready to POP!
