Lititz Craft Show Update

I just wanted to post that I do plan to be at the Lititz Rotary Club Craft show in Lititz, PA on August 9th. The show is from 8am - 4pm (altho early birds are always welcome, we'll be there by 5am). I will be in the same spot as last year, on Main Street near Sturgis lane.

If you've never been to this show, its fantastic! There are hundreds of vendors all set up in the center of town, through the Lititz Springs Park and up Main Street. There are so many different crafts, something for everyone. Don't forget to stop by Wilbur's chocolate factory too :) (oh and feel free to bring some to my booth, hahaha!!)

If you come, please find me and say HELLO! My friend Megan is coming up from NC and will be selling her signs and fixins, and my sister is coming down to help me with the show. I've got lots and lots of BRAND new items, I've worked all winter and spring to build inventory just for this show.

Hope to see you there!

Peaceful Sunday Morning

I love Sunday mornings! I'm sitting quietly, sipping my coffee while the baby sleeps in her bassinet. It's so quiet - no cars going by this early, hubby is still sleeping too. The sun is just coming up such a firey red - it's going to be a superhot day here but we'll stay inside the AC and relax today.

One of our traditions for Sunday mornings is pancakes. My hubby is such a great cook (all meals!) and he likes to make pancakes after he comes home from church. He makes mine with chocolate chips, then he adds pecans for his. I look forward to sharing this tradition with our lil one when she is older and can eat food :)

Today I have some fun things to work on - I picked out a birth announcement on Etsy; so I'm working on a mailing list to figure out how many we need. Then I want to take some pictures of the baby for it; I have a few little things I want to do too.

I'm starting to feel the craft 'itch' - I miss it! I am glad my website is closed so I can enjoy some time off and rest (I sure do need it still). But I may go in my sewing room one day this week and poke around to work on something. I am looking forward to Lititz - which is only 3 weeks away! I'm so glad I have all my inventory ready for the show. Maybe I'll sneak in a few more things in the next few weeks, we'll see.

Enjoy your Sunday today!

Two weeks old!

Ok I won't do this every week but I had the best intentions to get in here and blog again ... and here it is, another week gone by.

My baby girl is 2 weeks old already - her grandma and grandpa are here visiting and helping me out while my hubby is away for work. It's been wonderful to have them here! the company alone helps me out; but they are doing everything they can to help with the baby, the house, my dad vacuumed the other day!

We dressed her up and put her in the boppy pillow for some pictures - this is my favorite, I can't stop kissing those sweet little cheeks of hers. We also took (well both of us!) out for a walk the other day - I couldn't go too far, my incision still is a little sore. AND how fun - I got to drive the car yesterday too. My stepmom and I went to pick up pizza just a mile away but I wanted to do it since I was 'released' now to drive.

Things are going well with everything else here! Slowly every day I feel better. Having my parents here this week has been just wonderful - they may head home today, I know we will both miss them. Mike comes home tomorrow - whoohoo! we miss daddy!
Thanks for reading and until next time... which will be earlier than a week! Have a wonderful day :)

One week old, already!

I can't believe my baby is already a week old. We took her for her first dr's visit yesterday, this is one of her more 'alert' pictures we've gotten, she's quite a sleeper. So here she is all decked out (thanks to her Auntie Jeni) for her big trip.

The Dr. gave her a clean bill of health, she's doing very well! Our pediatrician is great, we can call or ask any questions we want anytime. They're so supportive and Gabrielle didn't even cry too much during the exam (I think it helped that her daddy made google eyes at her the whole time!).
Then on the way home, poor thing was so tuckered out. I love this picture, teehee. The hat covered her eyes and she slept, too tired for the binky or bottle. She took a 4 hour nap too when we got home!

We are all doing well at home - I'm resting and my wonderful hubby has been so great. He wins the best dad, best friend, best husband award of the year! He's the best friend I could ever ask for - we are so blessed.
