Summer Vacation and Shop Announcement

I survived my first 40 hour work week in about 4 years…and I actually enjoyed it.  While I am still a stay at home mom at heart, it is nice to get out in the “real” adult world every now and then!

But now I’ve switched gears and am preparing for our summer vacation down in sunny Miami!  Woo Hoo!  In a few short days, this will be me…

My husband and I are even sneaking away for a few nights sans kids!  I am excited for the vacation and to meet my first niece who was born just last week.  Remember the bedding I made for her?  I have a couple of other coordinating projects for her room to share so stay tuned for those in the next week or so. 

I’ll try to blog while I’m down there, but please be patient with me if I’m hanging out at the pool, letting the grandparents watch the kids, sipping on a cold beverage, instead of sitting behind my computer, blogging.  No offense.  Make sure you “Like” my Facebook page, if you don’t already, because I’ll probably post on there a little more regularly.

And finally I will be closing down the shop while we’re away so if there’s something that you’ve had your eye on, go get it now :)
