Down Memory Lane...

Wow! Can't believe we are already into May! I am sorry I have been MIA...the days and weeks have blended one into the next. Hopefully you didn't give up on me coming back to share something with you all! :)

There are so many new things that have been going on in my life. I am getting very excited to reveal my new look for my blog...coming in my next post! Make sure to be following, I will also be doing my giveaway with that post on a very cute birdie bag designed by me. As I have been Spring cleaning, I decided to do my look for my blog as well. I have been working with Traci at Sweet Cheeky Designs and she is wonderful! If you need a new look, blog button or even a small change,she is the one to work with! Her blog is one to check out! At first I thought I was going to make only a couple of changes to my blog, but Traci has such great creative ideas, I have now had a makeover! I love it and I hope you will too!!

Speaking of creative...I was given a Kreative Blogger award! So happy! Lou Cinda at Tattered Hydrangeas was so incredibly sweet to think of me and say the nicest things. I am feeling some love!! Thank you Lou Cinda~it means so much! She is an amazing person, so creative and talented as well! Make sure to visit her blog and tell her "hi"!

    Of course there are rules in receiving this, so here are 7 other deserving blogs that are so creative as well:

    2. Casa Mia
    3. ♥ Chelsea Ann
    4. Paper*Cakes
    5. Crazy about Cakes!
    6. House of Whimsy
    Here are 7 things that I love, too:
    1. I love my Heavenly Father! I feel grateful to have faith and the blessings of the Gospel in my life.
    2. My beautiful family! I love my husband, and children so very much! Extremely grateful for them!
    3. So many wonderful friends, who add so much joy to my life!
    4. The ability to use talent and create so that I can share with others.
    5. I love watching my children learn and grow and become their own unique individuals.
    6. I love to cook and entertain. Getting to see friends and family enjoy something I made with love and spend time talking and laughing with them.
    7. I love the direction my life is going. Striving for goals I have set and trying to accomplish them. 
    I decided to share in this post with you all something very close to my heart and beautiful daughter Drama Queen. She just attended her first formal dance at her school this weekend. Since she in in the mid-high, they have a dance similar to Prom called M.O.R.P. It was fun to see how excited her and her friends were about attending this. She is not old enough to date and probably never will as long as dad has something to do with it so her friends all met there together. They even had a nice sit down dinner and enjoyed being all dressed up. I wanted to show you all this amazing journey of her life from the beginning of her as a sweet baby to the transformation of the great young lady she has turned into.

    I will be here crying as I go through the photos, hope none of them will be blurred!

    So proud of her!

    The start of a beautiful life!
