Topsy Turvy Third Tuesdays

It’s been a CRAZY month! My Baby Boy turned one! Can you even believe that? I can’t!!! Remember last year when he was born? I do, and I can’t believe it’s already been a year.

Topsy Turvy Third Tuesdays

I can not BELIEVE it’s the third Tuesday of September already! INSANITY I tell you. In fact my BIRTHDAY is tomorrow! Last year I threw myself my last hurrah before the baby cake, my Ice Cream Parlor birthday party. It was SUCH a fun party, I was GOING to repeat it this year. BUT I’m working on a big first birthday party for Baby Boy instead, look for that next month! Remember the link party will be open all month so come back every week and link up! You can find the link party by clicking on the Topsy Turvy Third Tuesday button on my sidebar!

So this last month I promised i’d post more and catch up, after all the older 4 kids are in school and it’s just me and Baby Boy home all day, LOTS of extra time, right? WRONG! It’s been super busy as I’ve been playing catch up on EVERY aspect of my life that got ignored while we enjoyed our summer together! I think I’ll always be a bit behind… Part of my charm, right? I will say Baby boy is at SUCH a fun age it’s when we aren’t running errands I tend to sing and dance and play ball with him instead of blog, I know you guys understand!

Topsy Turvy Third Tuesdays

Remember Topsy Turvy Tuesdays are now just once a month, the third Tuesday! The link party will be open all month so come back every week and link up! You can find the link party by clicking on the Topsy Turvy Third Tuesday button on my sidebar!

It’s been a busy summer, my first summer with 5 kids! We didn’t get out to play as much as I’d hoped, but we still had a great time together. The kids start up again next week so expect the blog to pick back up again (until the Holiday’s at least!). I have a TON of fun stuff I’ve done over the summer to share with you, and more fun projects and recipes in the works!

Quick month’s recap: I finally got around to posting my life sized Candy Land game. I also shared Baby Boy’s 9 month pictures! I can’t believe how fast his first year is going! And we celebrated 12 years of marriage! And yesterday I posted two washi tape crafts with a giveaway for 10 rolls of tape and 25 decorative tags.

Topsy Turvy Third Tuesdays

I’ve decided to make a change to Topsy Turvy Tuesdays. I’ve considered dropping them all together, but I know I’d miss it. With the Point of View and the Pinterest Challenge It’s just too much. So rather than dropping it completely I’m switching it to a monthly challenge, the third Tuesday of every month! I’ll keep the link party open all month, so feel free to come link up all month, and I’ll pull out features all month for facebook!

This last week I posted the Craft Wars cake I made for Mandi’s viewing party! I’ve been playing catch up- comments, emails, photo editing, etc… I have a ton of posts planned, but it just hasn’t come together yet. In fact until school starts and the kids are in school I probably won’t be able to get caught up! But you all know what that’s like, kids at home, right? Either I’m up all night blogging, then tired all day. Or blogging during the day and the kids playing wii and fighting! OR simply less blogging… That’s the one I pick!

Topsy Turvy Tuesdays

I had the best time at EVO this weekend, it’s by far my favorite conference and this year did not dissapoint. I didn’t get as much class time with Baby Boy, but I loved every second of catching up with friends, meeting new people and companies, etc… I can’t wait to catch up on the conference, as well as the last 8 weeks of our lives!!!

But for now here are my features from the last Topsy Turvy Tuesday. I’m debating turning this into an every other or once a month thing, what do you think???? Or do you like every week?

Topsy Turvy Tuesdays

It’s summer and it’s crazy fun, water parks, the library, swim lessons, crafting, family birthday dinners, dollar theater, etc… We’ve been having a blast! Today I’m getting a crown replaced- it fell out while flossing on SATURDAY! It’s been a long few days of not being able to eat very much. But we have another full week and SOMEDAY I’ll get to share it with you (my computer is STILL broken- it’s looking more and more like it will have to be replaced! Boo!)

In the last few weeks I finally got around to sharing Princess’s Ballet birthday party, and ballet shoe birthday cake! It was a blast! Last week we had the Patriotic Point of View and I shared my fireworks inspired cupcake frosting tutorial! Nothing you haven’t seen before, but I tried a few different ways of doing it and hope my success and failures help if you want to do it too! I also shared my review of the Utah Truffles factory with a giveaway (that is now closed- Sorry!)
