a little this and that

The field trip Monday morning with Hudson's preschool was pretty fun. We went to an educational crop farm. All of the kids watched a movie about a farm, planted their own mini garden, made a little bracelet, played on old stationary tractors, and went on a tractor ride. Hudson said the tractor ride was his favorite. We all sat on a long trailer with rows of seats while a guy drove us around the 2000 acres of crops. There was also a straw bale maze that was bunches of fun for him and his friends, but, dang... it really cute up his hands too

I still need to u/l my pictures. There are some super cute ones, of course.


I just added a super cute fun little mini to the store, Follow Faith.

the best baby shower

Yesterday I attended the best baby shower ever. The mom-to-be hosted her own shower and had lots of prizes and thank you gifts for her friends. That is just her. Very giving and genuine. It was almost four hours too. I think it's definitely the longest one I've ever been to also.

It started out with appetizers and drinks, of course, but we were also supposed to get creative too. She had a cute tub filled with lots of generic white onesies and a platter full of fabric markers. The onesies were sized from newborn up to 24 months. We all chose one each and colored away. There were very kindergarten like designs and some very cute ones. The first person to start designing was still coloring when I left. She is a professional artist and really took her time making the most adorable onesie with an octopus wrapping it's tentacles around the back. I tied for third place with mine. I just kept it simple with outlined multi-colored polka dots all over with "mini monster" on the bottom. It was also one of the very few ones that continued a design on to the back of it. Why do people forget that a back of a shirt needs love too? They just look unfinished with only something on the front. We had a judging contest for them by each of us pinning a mini pastel clothespin on our favorite.

We had a bingo game during the gift time. We filled out our own bingo cards with possible gift items. I think there were probably 10 prizes awarded for the first people with single line Bingos. I was one of the lucky ones and was awarded a very nice Junior League cookbook.

After the presents, the diaper raffle prizes were awarded. I totally forgot to bring diapers or wipes with everything else going on in my life (see the most previous bloggings). She really raked in the diapers and wipes from everyone though. Three guests won prizes. The first girl won 75 bucks cash. Sweet. huh? I'm glad that person won because she came with a huge tub filled with them. The other two lucky girls won special one of a kind handmade glass pendant necklaces. The person that made the octopus onesie is the same one that is the glass artist.

We all also received little votive candles in little glass holders as thank you gifts.

ok.. do you think my mom-to-be friend is genuine and so fabulous? She is just so sweet. I really needed yesterday too. I didn't know a single person except for her and I had a great time. With dealing with death recently, it was a welcome change to have this.


This morning I am going on a field trip with Hudson and his preschool class. We are going to an agricultural center and he has been so excited for this. He wants to see a barn so badly and ride a schoolbus.

I need to go pack our lunches and get us ready to go.

Have a beautiful day!

laughs and a contest

I know I haven't had too much to laugh about lately here... so let's start out today's blogging with a little chuckle...

Some really good & practical suggestions you REALY REALLY Shouldn't try. Enjoy. Bill

1. If you're choking on an ice cube simply pour a cup of boiling
water down your throat. Presto! The blockage will instantly remove

2. Avoid cutting yourself when slicing vegetables by getting
someone else to hold while you chop.

3. Avoid arguments with the Mrs. about lifting the toilet seat
by using the sink.

4. For high blood pressure sufferers: simply cut yourself and
bleed for a few minutes, thus reducing the pressure in your veins.
Remember to use a timer.

5. A mouse trap, placed on top of your alarm clock, will prevent
you from rolling over and going back to sleep after you hit the
snooze button.

6. If you have a bad cough, take a large dose of laxatives, then
you'll be afraid to cough.

7. You only need two tools in life - WD-40 and Duct Tape. If it
doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and
does, use the duct tape.

8. Remember: Everyone seems normal until you get to know them.


If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical

I hope this will help you!
