For Thanksgiving week I am having a 15% off your entire purchase sale!! Use the coupon code "THANKS15" when you are checking out and it will take 15% off for you! The sale starts today and runs through 11/28. I will be listing new things each day so be sure to check back and see what is new.
My mom has a shop and is also having the same sale. Her shop is The Crafter's Cove and you can also enter the coupon code "THANKS15" and get 15% off your entire purchase in her shop!! The Crafter's Cove is filled with beautiful gift items for everyone on your list and everything is under $20 so they are very affordable. Great gifts for coworkers, teachers, friends and family.
My vacation getaway was WONDERFUL! We had so much fun swimming and going outside. The weather was beautiful so we went to Gooseberry Falls and wandered around Duluth in Canal Park. The pool was definitely a favorite for the kids and after a lot of playing, they slept great! I cannot wait to go back again next year. We celebrated 9 wonderful years of being together and love him more every day.
I hope you are all getting prepared for Thanksgiving and all of the shopping after. I am hosting my first Thanksgiving this year and spending the day with my kids making crafts with their hand and feet into turkeys and also preparing for a fun craft for the kids to make on Thanksgiving before dinner. We are going to have them make their own placemats and laminate them so they can use them for dinner.

It's that time of year again. We are headed up north to our fall getaway!! This will be our 9th year going there and I am just as excited as if it were the first. My hubby took me there to celebrate our one year dating anniversary and we are now celebrating our nine year dating anniversary. I love that we still celebrate that, it is a wonderful thing. Now, we are accompanied by our two children, next year it will be three :)
Looking forward to cozy fires, fun swimming and holiday movie watching with my family. It is a time when we get away from everything and enjoy each others company. Every year we go there are only about 5 other couples staying there since we go mid-week in the off peak time so the pool is usually ours to ourselves. The kids love it! There is a 60% chance of snow up there on Wednesday so I'm crossing my fingers they are right! There is nothing more beautiful than looking out the bedroom windows out to Lake Superior and seeing the snow falling while cozy in bed with the fireplace on and your husband and kids cuddling together. Have a wonderful week everyone!

With my due date only ten weeks away, I have decided to take a little time out for myself to try and accomplish a lifelong dream of mine. I have committed myself to a challenge of 30 days to complete it and I am giving it everything I have to make it happen. Today, I actually got up at 4:45am to put in some work. I never get up before 7:00am unless my kids do so for me, that is huge.
This thing I am doing has been a dream of mine since I was in the fourth grade. I set a goal to accomplish this by the time I am 30. I am now a month away from turning 29. Two clocks for me are ticking; the age clock and the baby clock. This baby will be #3 and I am busy now with two so I feel like if I don't give it a go right now, I may not get the chance again for a while. So, with that in mind, I am on day 2 of 30 and so far I'm right on track. I thought that if I blog about it a little bit it might keep me on track by talking to all of you about it and holding me accountable.
I know this is pretty vague as far as what I am doing but I will share more along the way as I hopefully get closer and closer to reaching my dream!!!
