Yup. That just about sums it up. I’m hosting a wreath-making party at my house tomorrow, which I decided to do it that day, oh, about 6 days ago. So, of course, Shaun and I have been scrambling all week long to get some long-overdue projects done (nothing like a party to force productivity, right?). Plus Saturday morning is BODYPUMP launch. Plus, my brother got engaged on Wednesday (CONGRATS, Bro!), so we’re having them over tonight to celebrate.  Plus, there have been sick kids and a toddler who is either teething (although, I can’t find them) or has officially decided that making stinky diapers no fewer than 10-12 times a day (no exaggeration) is her new goal in life.

I’m even cohosting a fantastic giveaway!

Whew! Apparently, I wasn’t too busy to tell you how busy I am! 🙂

But it is true that I’ve got so much left to do today that if I stay around here chatting with you awesome folks (as tempting as that is), I’ll never finish, so without further adieu, I give you this week’s fantastic features:

  1. OMGoodness….your weekend sounds so fun (but tiring!). I really need to do a crafting party for my pals. Love the Noonday products! Thanks for the giveaway!

  2. We had to move for my husband’s job so I had to leave my teaching job and it’s been hard finding work since. I would love to just for once go guilt free shopping if I won the giveaway!

  3. Thanks for hosting, Abbie! I don’t comment enough but I love keeping up with you on FB and through the blog. Love the twins nursery by the way. I linked up a dresser re-do that is full of whimsy.

    Good luck with all your stuff. At least it is mostly fun stuff!!!

I love hearing from you guys!
