Catching Up!

Hi! You know the feeling when you get home and there is lots to do? I gave myself a little speech this morning that I don't need to get all caught up with everything today - it will still be there tomorrow and the next day to share the load!

We had a great trip to Florida! My parents met us there for the first half of the week and then we had family time the rest of the week. I'll share more as the dust settles around here! But, here are a few pictures of our wonderful time together!

A couple of other things:

~ Thank you to all the ladies who signed up for our swap! I am so sorry we could not leave it open to more, but appreciate you understanding that we simply had to limit the size. For those of you who did get signed up, swap partners will be assigned and e-mailed out by Wednesday, so watch your e-mail!

~ Several of you have e-mailed me and I am NOT ignoring you!!! This is one of my catch-up things and I will respond as quickly as I can! Thank you for writing!

Oh, I have so much I want to share - so it will likely be a heavy week of posting here! Have a great day, ladies - looking forward to catching up with all of you!

Looks like you had a fantastic get away!

I am one who tries to get everything done right now. I also have to tell myself that the laundry, the dust and everything else will still be there tomorrow. Pace yourself and enjoy being home!

Welcome home!!! Looks like you had a wonderfully relaxing time! Seriously, was it cool enough to be wearing jeans in FL??? We can't even wear jeans here yet!!!

I am glad you were able to have a great time with your family!! It is always good to be back home though. I am with Stacey...was it that cool in Fl?
Glad you're back!

Aren't photos a great way to relive the memories of fun times?? We were so pleased to spend a few days with all of you -- thanks for all you did to make it work!

Hope you are feeling better and that you are able to pace yourself in getting things done!

Love you lots -- Mom

To answer honestly, no it really wasn't cool enough for jeans - but that is what fits me and I feel decent in right now! :) It wasn't hot, but it was VERY humid and windy.
