Leaving for CHA... be back soon :)

Hi everyone :)

Just wanted to stop in real quick and let everyone know that I will be leaving for CHA tomorrow morning with my friend Krista!!  I will be gone for most of the week ... I will try my best to post some pics of all the new goodies coming out! :)

Mostly I will be walking the floor :) But I will be checking in with Nikki Sivils and gang at lunchtime everyday to give Nikki, Dan and the DT lead Katrina Hunt a nice lunch break :)
If you are attending... come see me at booth 3047! :)

And also make sure to head over to Nikki Sivils blog and grab one of her blog badge's for your blog!!! When Nikki, Katrina and I get back from CHA we will be looking for YOU and we will be selecting people that have her blog badge's to win a NEW collection of their choice!!!!! Tell Nikki I sent you over to get a badge... *wink* :)


And I wanted to share some photos real quick! :)

In honor of Aleida Franklin... I am sharing my monthly photo of me and my babies (If you are new to my blog - please see my right side bar about my commitment to honoring Aleida's legacy) ....

And while we were at taking a photo of me and the kids... I decided that we need to start taking photos of Brian and the kids together too :)

Brookie and Mr. Dandy :)



And the other day, Brian and I went out to lunch...and I ordered the pancakes thinking they were gonna be 'normal' sized... WOW!! Was I wrong... they WERE HUGE!!! :) I didn't finish them all.... I brought home enough for Brookie and Adam to share it for dinner! lol :)

I will be back with all of you soon :)


Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

  1. You are so very lucky to be able to go to the CHA. I wish you the best of times! And I can't wait to hear about it!! :)
    You know what? You (and your remembering Aleida) has inspired me to do the same ... taking pictures of me and the kids every month. :) I agree with all that you write in "remembering Aleida". And I thank you for that eye opener. :)
    Have a GREAT trip to the CHA!
