Oh So Perfect!

Yes, this is perfect for me.

I was tagged over the weekend by Amy at Keeping Up With the Schultz Family.....
and that's usually what it's like around here...more like a triple scoop!

Thanks for the award Amy and here's my answers to the questions that go along with the tag.

1. What is your signature color? I don't know if I have one-I like yellow but I don't wear it that often.

2. Your most embarrassing moment? Definitely hitting reply on an email instead of forword....I don't think I need to go into details but it's still following me around!

3. Would you ever get anything pierced other than your ears? Nope, too chicken.

4. Are you a social butterfly or a homebody? I think I'm more of a homebody.

5. Are you done having babies or do you want more? I think we're done.

6. Are you loyal to your hairstylist or are do you tryout every salon in town? Just finally found a hairstylist I like (my last one kept cutting my bangs too short!) and I'm sticking with her.

7. How many times have you moved in your life? I think 8 times.

8. If you could plan your dream vacation with just you and your love where would it be? Definitely somewhere tropical and warm! Although, we haven't been anywhere in awhile by ourselves and any place would sound good!

If you'd like to play along, I'd love to see your answers!

Weekend Wind Down

Weekend time....ahhhh, my husband's home, laying low, my oldest is at my mother in law's, some school shopping, haircuts....yikes, it's going by too fast!!!

Time for Weekend Wind Down......
This week's question is when & where was the last time you went to an amusement park? Did you ride on a roller coaster?

We tried a new amusement park this year and had a blast. It was a perfect park for us because it had rides for all ages-rides scary enough for the older girls and gentle enough for the younger ones. I think my son broke the park record for the most rides on the fire trucks that just went round and round and round!

I did not ride on any of the roller coasters and have only ridden on a coaster once.......when I was in about 5th grade.....and I closed my eyes and prayed the whole time....I hated it! I've never been back on and I don't see a coaster ride in my near future either.

My husband and I have an amusement park agreement that keeps everyone happy.......

I do the twirly rides......
He does the coasters......
These are the important things you need to work out before you have kids.

These are really pictures from our visit to Hershey last summer.....once again, I left the camera memory stick in the computer and I think a certain 2 year old has it hidden in our house somewhere......keep your fingers crossed I find it....there wasn't a lot of pictures on it, but I'd be bummed to lose them.

Dishing It-Summer Rewind


Party time again!! Time for the August edition of Dishing It! with Amanda at Serenity Now. Such a nice way to meet and get to know some other bloggers....join in if you'd like!!

This month the topic is Summer Rewind. I know alot of schools have already started, but my kids don't go back for two weeks....two more weeks of no schedules and pretty lazy days....and I don't want to think about the summer ending! I think this has been the hottest and most humid summer for awhile so we've had some cranky days......sorry kids, mom doesn't do well with real hot weather.....but it's been a fun and busy one. I love a chance to remember what we've done and the fun we've had!!

~Best activity you participated in this summer. Did your family go on any trips this summer? Which was your favorite?

I had to put these two together because I just can't pick a favorite activity or trip! We've gone camping for two weeks and had a blast both times-great weather, friends, foods.....just fun the whole week. We've also done some day trips to a new amusement park and the beach.

We've had some great times hanging around the house too......playing in the rain, making our own WipeOut course, teaching my husband how to play cribbage and sometimes just being lazy. They're all my favorites!!

~Most exciting thing you've done this summer.

I don't know if this qualifies as that exciting but I called my sister one morning and asked her if she wanted to meet half way for dinner. She was free, so we met, shopped a bit, ate, laughed, laughed some more. It was such a nice night.

~Coolest crafty thing you made or home decor thing you tried.

I haven't been to crafty this summer but I am working on my older girls' bedroom. We painted and now it's time to decorate. I made my youngest daughter a sundress for her preschool graduation and I'm trying to redo a tshirt for myself right now and add some rosettes to spice it up a bit. I've been wanting to try them and wish I hadn't waited so long, they are fun to make! Can't wait to make some more and use them for headbands.

~Best book or magazine issue you read.
Definitely Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah! Such a good book-a little slow in the beginning, but once it gets going, I couldn't put it down. I just read and cried.

~Coolest new (to you) blog you've found.

I just found a cute new blog the other day-Two Little Bug Clothing-I saw her very neat Anthropologie inspired headband on One Pretty Thing and immediately went to check it out-great tutorial and now there's another item on my crafty to do list.

~What's left on your summer to-do list?

We still have two more camping trips to look forward to-one next week with my sister and her family and one over Labor Day Weekend. My husband has the week before the girls go back to school off so we'll probably do some day things while making sure everyone is ready for school......I'm sure there will be some shopping trips in there somewhere!
