mini vacation! (part 2)

Happy Friday friends!

I wanted to share just a *few* more photos I love from our mini vacation. You can read the first part here.

I really wanted to share a few shots I captured at Cade's Cove. Capturing the beauty and feeling of this place is not possible. Hands down one of the most amazing places on the planet. My heaven will surely look just like Cade's Cove. With, chocolate, diet coke, and shopping. tee hee.

See what I mean? The mountains here create the clouds. melt.


This picnic area is really beautiful. We packed a breakfast picnic and then played in the shallow part of the river


This was so fun


Heaven. seriously.










The kids loved all of the sights and sounds as we drove around the scenic loop


Get ready for this! We. Saw. A. Bear!! Been to the smokies many many times and I never saw a bear. I was beginning to think they were lying! The pictures aren't great he was pretty high in the tree but I loved it!



I truly hope I have made some memories for my babies. They are both old enough to remember this trip. I hope they will remember the fun times we had! 

Goodbye for now, sweet Tennessee. We will return soon to Good Ole Rocky Top soon!

mini vacation!

Hi friends!

I mentioned last week that I took my precious littles on vacation all by myself. This wouldnt be too big a deal but we went to Pigeon Forge, which is about an 8 hour drive from where we live. I have been there many times before so I was comfortable with the area and the drive.

We rented a little cabin, loaded up some crafts, hit up our favorite antique store, Cade's Cove, a fun candy store and the Dixie Stampede. It was a wonderful time for us! Here are some pictures from our adventure

This was the first night on our way to the dixie stampede


Day 2 we did some crafts! Thumbs up! Mom is about to catch herself on fire!


No really, baking shrink plastic in an unfamiliar oven and touching the towel to the heating element is a bad idea. 


We LOVE the Action Antique Mall or as we love to call it - the JUNK BARN in Sevierville TN. Lauren wanted to buy this "adorable boyfriend!"


IT'S TOO BRIGHT!



The kids made a wish in this fountain in the Old Mill District. They both wished for Pop Pop (my dad) to come home from Afghanistan. So sweet. I wished too!


More cabin crafts! Air Dry Clay we glued magnets to the back. When did that boy get so big??




I will post some Cade's Cove pictures soon! Have you ever been to East Tennessee? It is my FAVVVEE!

Hebrews 13:8 printable

Hi Everyone. It has been a super fun week here. I took off with the kids and went to Pigeon Forge for a couple of days. We had so much fun bonding, crafting, eating and playing in the Great Smoky Mountains. If you have stuck around here for a while you might know the GSM hold a special place in my heart. :)  I feel so refreshed and happy today to be home with my family. I will post some pictures hopefully later this week.

Today I am sharing a printable I created with one of my favorite verses! Hebrews 13:8! It is so nice to know that in life everything changes. Sometimes good, sometimes not so good, sometimes happy, sometimes painful, almost always hard. But have hope! Jesus  Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever!

Click. Print. Enjoy.

...hello?

Hello….anyone there…?? I haven’t posted in far too long here and I have been thinking lately that maybe I would post more if my blog weren’t in a box. I am stuck in this sort of craft box. Not that I don’t LOVE it in there! I love crafting and sewing and gluing stuff but the reality is that I just don’t have time to craft consistently between family and church and full time work. And then, when I do craft (which is actually more than you would think based on my posting habits) I do not have time to take pretty pictures or make a tutorial and put together a post.

So I figured it is my blog. I can write about whatever I choose. I am hoping to be inspired to post more but I wont promise all craft posts. There might be more family stuff, kid stuff, school stuff, church stuff. I might just post photos or even just stuff I am loving that day. I don’t know how often I will post but I am hoping for more than once per week. Don’t worry! I will still throw in occasional crafts and printables! I hope that you will stick around but I understand if this ends up not being your cup of tea.

p.s. Look how big my monsters are getting!

little ballerina feetsies - a pinned inspiration post!

I have a tiny ballerina in my life right now. It is going to be short lived because said ballerina has informed me she does not want to do this again next year. In fact, she said "I only like ballet because I get to dress up and look pretty". HA! She can do that at home for cheap. :)

I have been meaning to get some nice photos of her since she might never want to be a dancer again and she is just so stinkin cute right now. Here are some of the sweet pictures I recently captured!



This one was inspired by PINTEREST! WOO! I saw this adorable photo by Smashed Peas and Carrots. Which is actually a fantastic link to pair of hand-knitted legwarmers. I co not knit or crotchet so I am always fascinated by anyone who does! Here is the photo which inspired me



We dont have her recital outfit yet but I will definitely be working on a bunch of pics when we do! :) Let me know what you think! Have you made anything PINspired lately?
