Week 8: Zakka 2.0 Sew-Along ~ DONE!!!~

Oh my gosh! I just finished my first ever quilt. Yes, I said first.  I have been making quilt blocks for a few months now with my Craftsy class and RB Block of the Month, but this is the first time I have went beyond just blocks.

Menu Monday’s ~Vacation Edition!!~

Leaving….on a jet plane….Saturday!!! So excited to head to our annual family vacation next week in Virginia.  The boys are a bit nervous about flying, but it’s only a 2.5 hr plane ride tops so it won’t be too bad, right?!  This week my menu is basically preparing the house and kids for vacation.  Packing carry-on’s, check-in luggage, cleaning the house and taking the bunnies/cats to be boarded.  Nothing major, but if I don’t do a little each day it {Read More}
