On the road again...

Just another day supporting the oil companies!  I am leaving tomorrow morning from my moms in FL to my final destination-North Carolina. The boys and I are excited to see our new home and get settled in before the start of school. They are starting Kindergarten this year and are so eager to see the school they will be attending.  (I am eager to get them out the door! LOL!)  I love my boys dearly, but it is certainly time for school! It has been a long summer with them and my stamps will begin to osmosis back to plain rubber if I don't get back to stamping!! However, I had a wonderful ending to my adventure of moving and summer by being in Chicago last week spending time with the best group of gals!  I am still trying to recover!  To top it all off, my sister, who lives in Switzerland, just got engaged to a wonderful man! We are so excited for her and can't wait to see her walk down the aisle.  She will be married by the end of the year and it will take place in Holland (that is where her fiance is from). How fun this will be!  I will leave you all with a few more, and final pics from Chicago.  Also, I am in the mood for some enabling so check out the bottom for some awesome savings!!  I am signing off for now but should be back in the next few days!! Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by!!

This is a favorite picture of mine.  A group shot on the first day of CHA. We do have a few MIA-Jamie Middleton, a friend of Kim's and the force in getting MFT off the ground, Christy Beckwith-MFT Illustrator, and Amber Hillman.  These girls are just the best and we definitely had to have been the giggliest (Is that even a word??) group there!! From Left to right top row: Carolyn King (Cammie), Alma de la Rosa-The Cat's Pajamas Owner/Illustrator, Laura Canale (Lovinlifenvegas), Me, Michelle Giraud (Flaxychick), Kim Van der Sanden (MFT)  BOTTOM ROW: Joanne Basile (basilefamily), Carole Burrage (TruCarMa), and Kirsten DuBosque.  

We had a nice group dinner the last night in Chicago.  We went to this great little mexican restaurant called Maria's.  Just a darling little place and very nice staff!   We had a very long table so we were trying to get pictures from all angles.  Mine unfortunately did not come out as well, so this is one Kirsten took.  

This man was the entertainment for the restaurant that evening.  He was a lot of fun and sang quite well.  I just had to get a shot of him serenading us women!!
