Happy Fall Y'all!

So.. today is the first official day of fall. The weather here is just about perfect today--low humidity & a high around 80.. beautiful sunny skies, too! :)

I've been busy this past week helping my Aunt get ready for Heritage Days on the Goshen Trail.. it's the 29th year for the event this year. She has been on the board for several years now and my fireflies & now my ladybug, too, help her distribute information about the event each year. If you're interested in checking it all out.. I am including a link to the website with lots of information. If you're in the greater St. Louis area & are looking for a great family friendly(& educational!!)event.. please join us on either Saturday or Sunday.

Our garage sale went well a couple of weekends ago & we made some extra $$$, always a good thing! :) Planning on having another small sale with my brother & sister-in-law in a couple of weeks at their house. Hopefully we'll do well again.

Well.. laundry & dinner prep are calling my name(yet again).. so I will close out this post. I pray that everyone will have an amazing week!

Happy 40th Birthday, Sweetheart!

Happy 40th Birthday to my Sweetheart!! :)

I've been teasing him a bit about how "old" he's getting.. sitting here at the ripe ole age of 33, I can afford to tease for a few more years! ;) hee hee!

I hope that you've had a wonderful day & that the next 40 plus years will be even better than the first 40 have been. Once you reach a certain age it seems like it's really just another day.. but, then again.. even if that has become your mindset.. it makes you feel special to be remembered, too.

it's been far too long

It's been far too long since my last post. Life has been busy with both of my fireflies in school now(well, the younger of the two just started his 2nd year of preschool).

I have been trying to focus on getting the house dug out & re-organized again. We are having a big garage sale this coming weekend with my folks & my "little" brother's family. I have tons(& I do literally mean tons!) of baby and kid clothes to sell, some toys & assorted other stuff. My last garage sale netted us $350, so I am hopeful that we will do just as well(if not better) this time around.

My husband is busy mowing yards this afternoon.. I decided to take a much needed break from laundry & cleaning to sit down and finally type a post. Of course.. now that I am sitting here, all that I can do is yawn and try to keep my eyes open.. much less write anything exciting.
