2 weeks since my last post???

So it's really been 2 weeks since my last post....Ooooo em Cheeses.

I never did my Maryland blog, but we had a great time. It was a full week, dinner outings, an aquarium, Washington D.C., a huge mall, a fun family BBQ, a Beautiful wedding, 2 kid free nights, a fun rehearsal dinner, and an amazing reception. It went by way to fast. I can't wait to go back!!

I won a photo shoot a month or so ago so tomorrow we are getting family pictures taken. I am so EXCITED!! I love family pictures, I love looking back at pictures and wondering where time went. Yesterday we went shopping so I could find something to wear to our family pictures, and maybe buy a new pair of jeans since all my jeans fall off. I was excited when I took a pair of 9/10's into the dressing room, only to have to go back out and have the sweet lady grab me a pair of 7/8's, well I came out and she said let me grab you a 5/6....My eyes were wide eyed, a size WHAT?!?!? I put them on not only did the fit but I think I look rocking in them!!
I also found a really cute brown sweater to wear for our family pictures. Probably the first time in forever where I'm not wearing black in family pictures!

I registered for the half marathon so in 3 weeks I will be running/walking 13.1 miles. My dad has been an awesome trainer and on Sunday we ran 8.25 miles in 1 hour and 20 minutes. I don't have a time goal for the half just to finish!

Maryland Vacation or Pinterest?

Okay so Pinterest wins!!

Maryland was great but that's a whole other story.....Like over a million gazillion pics.

So onto newest addiction. Why did EVERYONE have to be talking about it? Why was I so curious about it? Why did I wait so long to hop on the bandwagon?

Well I am sure my husband, and my kids are thanking Pinterest, but my checking account not so much!! =) Today the kids and I looked at the majority of all my pins and picked out a few of our favorites. I made a list of the things we "needed", and off we went to Hobby Lobby.

Now that I am "Pinning" everything I saw in Hobby Lobby I said either "Ohh I can make that!" Or " I could use that to make..."

We loaded up the cart with all the fun stuff, Canvases, ribbon, paint, spray paint, construction paper, Halloween knick knacks to paint....After that we headed home to put our creative juices out there.

Miles is well Miles and likes to eat his paint
And Lacey well she definitely got the creative genes
Anywho thanks to Pinterest we had a GREAT craft day.
