I'm Back... and School is Almost Out!

Hey everyone! First of all, I wanted to say 'thank you' for all of your sweet anniversary wishes!!! We had such a nice time just being by ourselves... with NO kids! We very rarely get to go anywhere without the boys, so that in itself was a big treat.

My in-laws took the boys for the afternoon and we drove to Louisville. There's a huge outlet mall on the way, so we stopped there and did a little shopping. (I actually got to TRY ON some clothes before I bought them! Usually I just grab and go and wish for the best -- and then later return everything that looks hideous.) I haven't bought any new clothes for myself in almost a year... so it was time. ;) And then, we made our way to our destination and boarded a big steamboat that took us on a tour of the river for the evening. It was so relaxing... and they had dinner for us on the boat too. After that, we got some Starbucks to load us up on caffeine & made the drive back home.

We stopped for some gas in Indianapolis & thought we were going to die. (What a bum way to end a perfectly good day!) There were some shady looking characters on the other side of the pump who kept staring at us... and I could see what looked like a gun in one of the guy's front pocket. I was trying to translate what they were saying to each other & praying my husband would hurry up and get us out of there! The guy with the 'gun' slipped his hand in his pocket and finally my hubby just put the pump back and got in the car.

So... as we pulled back into our drive far in the country.... I was happy to be home. :)

And now... if you're bored to death with my personal blabbering... here are some projects I made using some images from The Greeting Farm. I LOVE this little gal (Annika) from the Wild Sprouts Collection! She's colored in Copics & paired up with some fun paper from Jenni Bowlin & Graphic 45. The apple paper lace is by KI Memories.

Emery, my 3 year old, had his last day of preschool & I made his teachers each a little desk organizer filled with chocolate & goodies. These are so easy to make! (The template can be found at Papertrey Ink.) I used some cute 'Teacher's Pet' papers from Imaginisce, Teacher Anya from The Greeting Farm, and the Fresh Alphabet set from PTI to spell out the teachers' names.

And... here is part of the stash that I tucked inside. I think every teacher deserves a healthy dose of chocolate to make it through the day!

I hope you stop back by in the morning! I have a new Jiffy Girls post all set up and ready to go! :)
