Staycation Over.

I’m sorry. I know… I’ve been a bad blogger this past weekend. ๐Ÿ™‚ Sorry for the absence. BUT as a result… here is a jammed pack crazy review of the past few days and the staycation.

First thing you should know… I wrote LOTS of papers… Which means (drum roll) I am DONE with all of my seminary papers. BOOYAH. May 18th can’t come soon enough.

Second, I learned how to make Strawberry jam from my Mil (mother-in-law) during our hiatus to Rose Hill. If you know me… you know that strawberries might be on my top 5 fav. things in this world, so this was a really good thing. I thought it was going to be really complicated, but it wasn’t nearly as crazy of an event as I thought it would be.

(sorry for the pic quality… taken from my phone… not as great as my camera… I know)

and then we returned to Raleigh, I used some extra fabric and made a few of these:

Cute eh?

Then we had a wedding this weekend that was pretty much a high school reunion for the Mister. I think my fav. thing about weddings from his home town is that it’s guaranteed family time with the Salmon crew… and what a crazy crew they are! I know not everyone adores their in-laws like I do… so I am TRULY blessed.

And then last night (I told you we had a lot of catching up to do…) we went and grabbed some Froyo with some of my fav’s. With all of the “adults” plus all the kiddos, I think we took over yogurt mountain’s patio area. Folks didn’t know what hit them. Here are some of my fav photos from the evening.

First things first: the Watermelon Sorbet is fantastic. I tried it skeptically and am now addicted. Add fresh fruit and sour gummy worms and it is to die for. Seriously, go get you some.

Disclaimer: Some of my friends’ kids are so stinkin’ cute. I couldn’t help but keep snapping shots of them. So sorry about the surplus of kiddy photos, but seriously how can you not love these faces. ๐Ÿ™‚

This cutie kept asking me to take photos of her, YES. Yes I will, gladly.

The Mister with sweet Em. I love this photo!

I love the little leaf on her dress!

Caption, “Taylor, what are you doing to my baby?” I kinda love these ladies.

Sweet Eve!

I also love this one of Callie and her girls.

Ok… now that I’ve just overwhelmed you with lots of photos… (SORRY! I just couldn’t help myself!) I must go…

Oh one more thing… I also sewed a lot but you’ll have to wait until tomorrow to see all the fun little goodies that were made for Adding Anna Carson.

Much love!

  1. That next to last picture is my favorite….hmmmmm, wondering why! When I saw “Froyo”—I KNEW Caitlin and Carson had to be there—they are all about some froyo…oh, and Joshua had your EXACT order except he substituted gummies for fresh fruit—sour worms, watermelon & gummies—that’s the JNelly order—just fyi.
