Guess What? It's Friday again!

Yay for Friday!!
So, what are your weekend plans?
We have a somewhat busy weekend coming up...

Tonight is a surprise birthday party for a friend turning 30!
The girls are spending some quality time with
Mom-Mom & Pop-Pop which I am sure they will enjoy!

Tommorrow is the "Peach Festival" at a little village shop type place.
We may go visit for a while.. they have pony rides & a bounce house which
I know the girls will enjoy.

Sunday is my husband's volunteer fire company's 50th Annual Chicken BBQ.
Mmmmm! Best chicken around!
All of the members work very hard and our community is a wonderful
support to them so I really hope it turns out nice for them!
{If you are in the area - stop out!}

Whew! I may need a day off to recover from my weekend, lol!
Just kidding - I love being the social butterfly.

I can hardly believe the first week of August is about done there... goodness!
Where does the time go?

Stop by some of these cute blogs today! Tell them I sent ya!

The Homemade Way - Giveaway!

Shop owner, Jennifer Boring started her business 15 years ago and it is filled with all sorts of sweet things! Here is a little about Jennifer:
I am a single mom of two rambuncious kids and enjoy my crafting time to keep my sanity. :) I started my craft business "The Homemade Way" 15 years ago. I have been making various projects to sell for 15+ years. I do crochet (many different items from clothing to dolls), cross stitch, embroidery, bake and draw. I am interested in a wide variety of topics. Nothing is too big or too little.
The Homemade way has that perfect "something" for your little one from hats to purses to dolls. Here is a just a small sample of some of the cute things Jennifer makes!
{Adorable hats!}
Check out these cute purses.. how can you not want one {for your little one, of course!}

Too cute!
Jennifer was so very kind enough to send this adorable Owl Purse to my girls.
I have to tell you, they LOVED it from the moment they saw it. It is so adorable.
The purse is very well made & you can tell a lot of love when into making it. It's sturdy enough for my 2-year old to drag it around the house so that must tell you something! She has put everything in it from silly bandz to pretend makeup to some play money and even insisted on taking with her to the store yesterday with Daddy. Needless to say, I don't think she will be putting it down for a while.
I love it because it's just so darn cute! It's a purse, which will hold all of the 'treasured' things Abbie wants to take with her but it's also neat because hello, it's shaped like an OWL! How orginial & unique?!

 The details of the purse are fabulous and make it realistic looking. As I said before, it is very well made and even hand washable if needed! We all know things get dirty with little ones!
 I would recommend this to any little one with a love for Owls... or even if they don't! It's the perfect 'back to school' gift as well! Have a special birthday or other ocassion coming up.. I suggest getting one of these cute homemade purses.. it's sure to be a hit!

And now for one lucky reader... A Giveaway!!
Jennifer is giving YOU a $15.00 gift certificate to spend in her shop The Homemade Way on Etsy. How can you win? It's easy!
