Me and some new freinds

Meet me and my new BFF King Arthur of the Harlem Wizards!  

While he may be only 5'9, and the smallest guy on the team, he has a personality of a GIANT!  ACtually all of the guys were amazing.  Funny, generous, considerate and and true showmen!

As a surprise the many volunteers at our event last night honored me with a bouquet of flowers at Half time. While I was humbled by the gesture, this was not a lone effort, but I appreciated the thought.  This started as a little idea at our dining room table and blew up to a 1000 person event!

Then Arthur and I donned our dancing shoes to kick off the half time show to the cha cha slide!

There is plenty more to share, but I am still on a high from the days events!

Something small

I found a way to create a little "cute" in my kitchen weeks ago. I took a plain ol black shadow box frame and when I find something free and printable on any of the BLOGS I visit and I love it, I print it! I use simple and pretty pins to keep the paper from falling down.   I have a file going so I can switch them out for season, holidays, inspiration etc. 

This morning, while stalking browsing some of my favorite BLOGS I found landee see landeedo and fell in love with this spring (and FREE) printable!  I snagged it to put in my shadow box!  The colors are not "my kitchen", but the saying is wonderful.
 Isn't that cute??

The family rules will be filed away until the next time I need them!  It is a fun and cheap way to personalize my kitchen!

Here it is in my kitchen!

We are home, we are busy!

We are back from our fantastic vacation and I dove right into full fundraising mode for the harlem wizards event we are planning next week.  It has been a whirlwind of chaos, phone calls and emails.  I only just yesterday finished unpacking (yes, we have been home for 2 weeks!)
And while I would like to say I have been crafty and creative since arriving home all relaxed, I have not. No time, but as soon as the Wizards are over, I will be outside, sanding, painting, gardening and enjoying some 
R & R. I have a list as long as the eye can see on things to do!
Here are a few of my favorite photo's from our trip....It was full of sun, fun and a lot of R & R, which we all needed and deserved.  9 days was the perfect amount of time to be away and start to miss home sweet home...

 J & C getting ready to ride Grandpa's super fast red car!

 C mastering golf outside my
parents house!

Grandpa took J, C & M on a hike up the mountains. I love this photo and the size differences between them!

More to come from me just as soon as this 1000 person event is over...I promise!
