Summer family time

1
This is one of my first finished quilts!  Pretty sure it was an Eleanor Burns pattern.
 I have been busy, busy with the fam! With the 4th of July this week, we had a great time at the parade and going out to breakfast. I have to admit that Clint is the one that loves to go to these things. I like to avoid public crowds because I tend to get a little ornery. I'll explain....

Um, he's adorable!!  The baby too...
  So, it is simple enough that we have to wake up early and get to the parade route asap so that we can get a good seat. We do this every year, and every year the same thing happens....

My kids get pushed out of the way by parents and bigger kids that are anxiously waiting for candy hand outs. So, this year, as the crowds were pushing in - you can't see them in this picture - I told the kids to claim their territory and this is what they came up with.  It's really amazing that we come out for the parade every year and wake up early to get a good spot just to have people come in later and take over the space.  This is why I don't do crowds.  I wish I would have gotten a picture of how it was during the parade, but I was too busy grumbling under my breath.  Don't get me wrong, the kids have fun and this is why we go, but if I had my choice, I wouldn't go. What's wrong with me anyway?   Everyone likes these events right?

The child does smile, but I am more worried about the picture of me...you are the same - admit it!
So, I thought it might be a good time to share my new hair with you. I figure I change my hair every time I have a baby, (that's not an announcement) but since my book deal went south I changed my hair immediately, it was just the change I needed to get my mind off of things. I also went to ULTA and got a whole bunch of facial cleansers and new makeup - apparently washing your face with hand soap is not a good idea, uh - who knew? So, I am allowing more time to take care of myself and I have felt a lot better about myself.  Happy wife means happy life!

 I never have been a shoe girl, but my sister has convinced me of the importance of a good pair of heels. So, this mama is rockin' in her new heels and boy, it's going to take some getting used to.

I am getting some quilting done, I will share when I can.  I also have a giveaway going on over at Amy's and our shop has all our new releases on sale at 25% off until Monday, go check it out!  

I hope you are all having a fabulous summer!  Have a great weekend everyone!
