Special day....

17 years ago today, My husband and I became boyfriend & girlfriend. We were in 7th grade. I was 13. He was 12. Wow. Has it really been that long? Your'e probably thinking I just settled with the first boyfriend I had. But I didn't. I was lucky to find the "one" so young. He is my best friend, my rock, and I will love him forever. I love you, Justin!

Good Bye, Summer. Hello, Autumn!

How can it be September 23rd already? 

It's my favorite time of the year. Cozy sweaters, cuddling with blankets, hot cocoa, coffee cup cozies, and Pumpkin spice coffee creamer! Yeah, I'm addicted to that stuff. I finally found it in my local grocery store last weekend.Yummy!

I LOVE coffee cup cozies, and I love making them! I have them for sale in my etsy shop. Only $8 (plus shipping) They make great stocking stuffers, and Christmas gifts! 

Here is the style of coffee cup cozy with a mug with a handle:

And here is my new style coffee cup sleeve cozy.

All of my cozies can be found here. I have a large quantity, and in many colors! Check them out!

Busy Beaver...

I've been really busy with.... life.

My husband and I went on our second honeymoon last week. It was awesome. It was nice to have some "us" time and not have to change any diapers. We took lots of walks and rode bikes. Oh... and lots, o lots, of FUDGE. 

I've also started making Christmas presents. My etsy shop can get very busy during the holiday season, so I like to plan ahead. Plus, making gifts also take time. I made my dad some slippers, and my mom, and mother in law, dish cloths. I hope to have the rest of my Christmas shopping done by the end of October. Then I will wrap everything while listening to Christmas music in December. Go ahead, hate me.

Still reading whenever I get the chance. I'm reading the second Game of Thrones book, A Clash of Kings. So far so good. We finished watching Game of Thrones season 1 last night. I want to finishing reading book 2 before we watch season 2.

And here's a picture of my girls, Sippy cups and Sesame Street. Too precious.

GoodReads 2013 Reading Challenge - August

I've done a lot of reading in the month of August. Thanks to removing a wisdom tooth. I didn't feel like doing anything but read.

Here's what I read in the month of August:

The Host
Stephenie Meyer

The Fault in our Stars
John Green

The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving
Jonathan Evison

The Great Gatsby
Scott F. Fitzgerald 

Eleanor & Park
Rainbow Rowell

5 books in one month! August was a good month!

And with that said, I have completed my GoodReads book challenge!!! I have read 31 books so far this year! I'm going to continue reading, and maybe next year I will make my goal a little higher!
