Want to win a pink princess chair?

Well, I'd love to! Not for me, mind you...but for the girly girl in my house :) TotalClassCreative Blog is giving away a pink princess chair...signs-ups are through the end of August. Hop on over there if you'd like a chance to win this...

And wow, I didn't realize when I posted yesterday that I would be soon!

While I'm here, let me tell you...Trixie Scraps has some incredible new kits out today at Scrap Matters and Gotta Pixel.
This was scrapped with the Trixie/Connie Prince collab, Take Me Away.

With Trixie's new Tea Time with Teddy kit:

Finally, Colie has a cute new back-to-school kit at Gotta Pixel and Digitals. You can snag Off to School, the matching word art, and a new For Starters Template set...perfect for those school photos!

Wishing you all a happy weekend!

Confession time. I am not the world's best blogger. LOL. Every time I post, I think, I'll be back soon...and then life intervenes! I get caught up with other things and my little blog falls by the wayside. Then I'll post for a few days catching you up on my boring life...and then I disappear again. But you know what? I guess that's just who I am! Sorry I'm not more exciting, but I won't promise again to update soon...because I've learned my lesson!

The last time I posted about life, we were in the deep freeze, so it's been quite awhile. We are just now starting to experience the first winds of autumn's very welcome after a few weeks of scorching heat.

So here's a slice of life since I last shared:
The new children's zoo opened, and we bought a zoo membership. This has been one of the best purchases we've's so nice to head off to the zoo on a whim!

We celebrated Easter at home, and then went off to church:

Rachel was invited to a friend's princess birthday party...what a hoot...have you ever seen a princess mow the lawn? I have!

Rachel had her first dance recital! Here are some photos from rehearsal (note: photos were not taken by me)

NiNi, Nanny, and Aunt Peggy came into town to watch Rachel perform. While they were here, Rachel stayed with them and had slumber parties at their hotel each night. She had a GREAT time, and it was kind of nice to have a little break :)

We went to the air show at TAFB. My favorite moment...Rachel getting to sit in a mini B-1 Stealth bomber :)

I made a tutu for the first time...easy and cheap, so we'll definitely by making more of them :)

And lastly, Rachel has begun school! I am tickled to say that so far, so good...she is having a great time!

So now you're caught up on life here...nothing earth-shattering, but eventful for us anyway! Until next time, may the Lord bless you :)
