Oh hi…

oh hi! Yes. Did you even remember that I had a blog? I obviously didn’t. ha! I’ve been meaning to post for well… about 2 or maybe it’s been 3 weeks now! Here is just  a little of what I’ve been up to:
Got my hair cut LONG over due!, I’m loving it… Please tell me I don’t look like a poodle when I wear it curly Q! I know. I do.  :(
Girls Weekend Week (Our little girls weekend turned into a full on week of crafts and giggling and spending time together!) It was much needed! I LOVE my sisters & family! And since we are getting more spread out we never get to spend enough time together!

These silk flowers! (I’m sort of LOVING all these flowers,to put in my hair, on purses, belts, & cute little cardigans and sweaters!)

My mom & Angie helped did most of this project, I saw a picture of one online somewhere, but thought we could figure it out. I LOVE how it turned out! Spooky little table runner for October! ♥
We put up Halloween decorations. Don’t  you love doing the black and orange combo?! I keep my holiday decorations so super simple. Here are a few of my favorite spots in the house.

Another thing that has been keeping us busy is our yard! It looks awesome and I can’t take any credit for it, other than raking up all the stinking rocks!  (thanks to my super man husband), he laid it all out & worked hard on it!) Now it is all finally paying off here is a sneak peak:


Trying to figure out what to wear for family pictures, always a chore isn’t it?! We are scheduling them with this amazing photographer!
LOVE her!!!
She did some of my kid’s Halloween pictures last year

Another highlight of my month:
The Relief Society Broadcast.
Are you curious what a Prophet of God would say to women of today?


And General Conference as well! Spiritually fed for sure.

Can you smell that? YUM! I ♥ when I have a good crock pot dinner ready to go! I’m trying out Sherelle Christensen’s Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie! For the recipe go HERE.


More tutorials will be coming! I don’t have time to finish this whole post like I wanted. Hopefully I will be back soon! I have Recipe Group with the Cookin’ Mama’s this week, and a fun Relief Society Activity too! Hint: “Chicken Soup for the Soul” with a guest speaker on “The Myth of Perfection”. Should be awesome!
Hope your week is AWESOME too!
And What the heck, let’s have a little give-away, if you want one of those cute felt flowers then let me know and I’ll send you a couple of the little cuties!
