Hello! Hello! It feels so good to be home!!

We had a great time while we were away, but nothing feels better than coming home.

We arrived home around 6:30 this evening. Amazingly the boys didn’t fight much in the car. That is always a plus!! Makes the trip much more enjoyable. Lucy is known to get car sick, but I am happy to announce she didn’t get sick on the way there or home. I was so delighted! She has been curled up on the bed since we got home. I think she’s glad to be the only dog in this house. There were 3 other dogs staying in the house where we stayed in Eureka. She’s not used to having so many doggie friends running around! She is one worn out puppy.

I think tonight I will follow in Lucy’s footsteps. I have a few things to wrap up on the magazine, but after a busy week/weekend I’m taking this night to relax! I’m off tomorrow, so I will have time to get my work done and get some birthday cards finished up. I’m looking forward to getting my Cameo out and getting some craft time in!

I’ll leave you with a cute picture the boys and I snapped yesterday.

Work, work, and more work.

Do you ever put your work off until the last-minute and then you’re overloaded with 100 things? I do this all the time. I justify it though. At least I’m putting off work to spend time with my family, right? Most nights I stay up until 1 or 2 o’clock, working and answering emails. I get lots of things done in those hours. Kids are sleeping and it’s nice quiet. It’s all fine and dandy until the next morning and I don’t want to wake up because I’m extremely tired.

I need to find a better way to manage my time throughout my day. I know there’s plenty of time I could do things here and there and not put it off until the end of the day or even week. Working from home is harder than one thinks. Especially when you have small children. How do you possibly get everything done in one day? Believe me, I wouldn’t change it for the world. I love that I have the option to work from home . I am not complaining, but asking for your help. Do you work from home? What have you found most beneficial for you at managing family and work?

Any tips help.

I better get to work. Tomorrow is Monday and there are lots to be done!

Hope you all had a great weekend and enjoy (the always dreaded) Monday!! 🙂

Well…we’re back from our vacation. We had a great time, but it’s always good to be back home! Wanted to share some of my favorite pictures with everyone. Enjoy!

^We visited my cousin in Ocean Springs, Mississippi. It was beautiful there. We enjoyed a few hours at the beach. The boys loved the water and finding hermit crabs in shells. Besides Mississippi having a ton of gnats, I loved it there.

^Bonus loved playing on the sandy beach.

^Couldn’t leave Mississippi without trying some crawfish! I was very put off by the look of these things, but once I got the courage to try them they were actually pretty tasty. Glad I took the plunge.

We spent a few nights in Mississippi and left for our next destination. It took us about 9 hours of driving to arrive in sunny Florida. The boys did so well in the car while traveling. I was so proud of them and Lucy (our dog) for being such great travelers. It always makes the trip more enjoyable!

^Palm trees!! Clearwater Beach, Fl. It was beautiful here. My only complaint: there is so many people!!! This is different living then little Eureka Springs, Arkansas. We get busy in our tourist season, but nothing compared to the amount of people here. Finding parking was nuts. The white sand was so pretty and the weather was great…windy, but great.

^Look at these little stud muffins. 🙂

^Atticus and Mommy. I love the boys in their little sunglasses.

^Bonus and Daddy! I mean seriously…those glasses are so freaking cute!

We had a really great time. Visited with our friends that lived in Clearwater. The boys ran around with their kids. We drove over to Tampa one day. It was an amazing time. On our way home we went through Memphis…had to stop for some Memphis BBQ. Talk about delicious. Words cannot even describe how good it was! After a week on the road, we arrived in Eureka a little before midnight. We were all tired and glad to be home in our own bed. Lucy slept for about 2 days straight. I think she was happier than anyone to be home. She is so funny sometimes!
