Small Sampling

I do realize I have been really bad at posting on my blog lately.  I think my time is always full but lately I find myself so ready to hit the hay after the kiddos go to sleep  I have indulged in going to sleep and my blog has suffered from that.  I thought I would let you in on a few things I have been busing myself with.

The boutique at the beginning of October went really well.  I couldn't have pulled it off with out some special friends and of course my amazing mother for not only hosting the boutique at her house but staying up until 3 in the morning helping me with last minuet things.  Mom you are the best!  I brought little M.Q. along with me.  This girl is a God send to me! She is always so helpful, sweet and happy. 

One last time out on the boat.  I love boating in the fall.  The water is cold but it feels so nice to breath in the crisp air and snuggle up in a cosy sweater when you get out of the water.

A day trip down to Linden to check out Spark #3 artisan market.  I was sad not to attend the classes this year but it was still fun to go and see all of the cute decor.  I will have to start saving my pennies now so I can go next year.

Pulling of another successful gourmet club.  I really love getting to do this with my friend Melissa.  She is so talented and has such fun ideas, I love putting our heads and resources together.  I will let you know when our photos and recipes are posted on our gourmet club blog.

MORE pumpkin events!  I got to paddle one of Matts pumpkins in the a pumpkin regatta.  It was held at sugar house park.  I was really nervous about the whole thing but after a chat with some of my sweet friend I was excited and it turned out to be really fun.  We put a caldron on our pumpkin and filled it with dry ice and water, it looked really cute.  All the kids there loved me because I threw out candy!  Thanks for the idea S ;)

I traded my green face make-up for my green coat. We spent the next day at Hee Haa farms having fun smashing the big pumpkins.  The kids had a blast in the corn box.  Enjoy the video.

I have also been creating fun new things that i will have for sale at the HIVE.  I will be back to post some photos before the Hive.  Hope you are all having great weekend!

Nicole- your boots & socks (in the Spark photo) are so cute I could die! I am feeling really really not up to date on my fashion :)
Also- really love that you are donating to the Mothers Without Borders organization, such a great cause!
Keep up the great work, girl. You are an inspiration!
