Busy, busy, busy

Like I mentioned in my weekly update, school is crazy busy!!!  I think things are starting to settle in, but I hesitate to say that.  That is when things fall apart!!!

Home is good.  P is knocking on the door of potty training but she is just not there.  She had her 2.5 year check up yesterday and everything is in check.  She is soooo tall at 36.5inches.  Her eating is a little pickier than it was 6 months ago but she still likes to eat.  She is talking up a storm and loves her visits to the Little Gym.

J and I are on autopilot but we are having a date night this weekend.  I am looking forward to getting a few things done and spending some time together. We are starting to look at a new couch.  Wish us luck!  Wildtree was really good for a couple months and this month is a little more slow.  No biggie, since everything else is busy.

That is the basic wrap up.  I am here and getting many back on track!!

Review: Kristen's cute creations

Other than the fact that I get to show of P some more, here is the next cute hat that she will be wearing this fall!!!


Kristen is a fellow mom who makes some of the cutest stuff on Earth!  I am so happy that she choose me to share her products with you!

Here is some more about Kristen in her own words:
When my son was born, I had a huge desire to make things for him. I'm not the most crafty person so I knew it had to be something simple. I also tend to start projects and then leave them half finished. My thought was that I could teach myself how to crochet and I would start to make hats for him to wear during the cooler months.

My first project was an adorable snowman hat. I finished the hat fairly quickly, taking full advantage of my son's nap times. Once I put the hat on it was a huge hit. I showed it to a mom group that I'm apart of on Facebook, and the next thing I knew I had people wanting to buy my creation. And that was the beginning of my business.
Crochet has truly changed my life. What was once a hobby, quickly became a lifestyle and passion. I love what I do and love making people's day when they receive one of my products. I hope to continue with this endeavor for years to come.

Check out these cute items her etsy shop.  You can get there from here.

You can also find out about her specials and sales on her Facebook page here.

I really love P's hat and she does too.  We have not hit cooler weather yet, but she is wearing her hat around the house and wants to wear it outside.  I am hoping for some good fall weather soon so we can try it out!!

I'm Alive!!!

OMG!!  The start of the school year really got me!  I am so sorry that I have been away for so long.  I have some posts just waiting to be clicked and some great ideas on the list.  I think that things have calmed down a little for the beginning of the year, but who knows.  I think that I will be looking to post a couple of times a week as the school year goes on.  Fingers crossed I can keep up with that!!!

This week I will fill you in on what has been going on in our house and I have a great review that is WAITING for me to show it off!  I can't wait!
