Back from a blogging break

Not that I have been anywhere or done anything exciting in the past three weeks since my last blog post--I just have not taken the time to sit down and update. Almost everyday goes by and I think I should really update the blog and it just never happened. So here it is the long awaited update.

First of all,we saw the end of the marching band season. Lauren really enjoyed her first year in color guard. She enjoyed the time she spent with her friends in color guard and in the band. We attend the awards ceremony. She received this bar for her letter jacket.

For my birthday, which was during my blogging break, I received this lovely crock-pot from my husband and the kids.
I sent my brand new crock-pot to work with my husband, the company that he works for was having a chili cook off!! The crock-pot came back in one piece and we (I am not sure what he did) won 6th place out of around 20!!!! Of course, there was only a prize for 1st--but it was still fun.

Finally--I have spent a lot of time sewing recently. I have finally finished a new purse for myself--along with a new matching checkbook cover, driver license holder and wrist key lanyard. I don't have pictures of those yet--but I am enjoying those.

I also whipped up an apron for my nephew's wife-to-be. I helped with a bridal shower for her last weekend and decided for her gift to make her an apron and give her the latest copy of our church cookbook.

I am planning on making a couple more like this as Christmas gifts. I already have the fabric and now am just looking for an hour or so--so I can get going on that.

Well that about sums up my 3 week vacation from blogging. I have been checking in on you my blogging buddies even if I have been a bad girl and not always commenting.

Hope you are all have a great day and enjoying this beautiful weather.

We all need that break. I've certainly taken my share over these last few months. I am still having difficulty being consistent.

I LOVE the apron your made. It's really pretty.
