Summer Swap & recap

Drill weekends for Erik are never easy.  I miss him like crazy and so do the kids but thankfully we seem to always find a way to stay busy.

Ryan’s bestie from school was having his 4th birthday party.  Bryce’s Mom always goes over and beyond for her son and the parties are always a big hit.  As stressful as parties are for Mom’s, the outcome is always worth it!!  She had horserides, a bounce house, petting area for goats and other lil’ animals and a bouncy slide.  And I can’t forget to mention the face painting!!!

A few weeks ago, I thought it would be fun to sign up for a summer blog swap!  Its a match up with a fellow blogger to get to know and then send each other a little summer happy!

I was excited to meet my blog swap partner
Kylee at  UpperCase Diva blog!  She’s a young Momma with a lot of sass and spunk!! She is also from Pittsburgh, PA which I felt was an immediate connection since I’m a huge Steeler’s Fan!!
I wish I had thought to take a picture of what I got for her but you can check her blog for her post… here’s what she was so sweet to send me!!

There is nothing more fun than getting mail…. but a package is WAY more fun!!  I got a cute lil’ mini planner, a daily magnet planner which I could totally use to stay more organized… note cards that still have me smiling… matching invites and thank you notes!! I got some yummy blueberry sanitizer and cute clip air freshner that just smells like summer… and you can’t go wrong with some sexy legs and a tan (although I might need tips on how to use this stuff b/c I’m such a nervous nellie about streaks) and CUTIE patootie Pink Polish….

Aww cute pink piggies. Now that is a birthday party! How fun would that be. I think my husband would freak if I ever told him I wanted to have a birthday for my kids like that
