I just realized last night that I forgot to announce the winner of the Wings of Love Class kit! Thanks to all those who purchase felt products at Brooke's Etsy shop! I entered everyone who e-mailed me and who posted on my blog that they had made a purchase! The winner will received a full class kit for the "Wings of LoVe" Class. That will be shipping in mid-late august. It has tons of fabulous products with a retail value of over $40.00 and the class is so fun! Lots of winged themed products in it.
so drum-roll please...... the winner is......
Brooke Hren (what a fun last name by the way!)
Thanks for everyone who participated!
so.. life is crazy as usual.. I keep forgetting we are moving in like 2 weeks! I mean I remember, then I forget and then I remember.. then I forget.... and I haven't even started packing! Ben is busy finishing our basement in the house we live in (before we close on THIS house at the end of august).
We close on the house we are buying in two weeks and before we can move into it, Ben is going to texture the entire house with the "sun valley" texture and repaint everything. We decided yesterday to replace the carpet in the living room too. It's actually fairly new, so we will re-use it in Braden's room (which isn't finished) and the family room (which is now the garage, but will soon be the family room). ah! hard to keep straight! I also keep forgetting we are moving into a smaller house.. but it's okay because the backyard MORE than makes up for it.!
Well busy working today, getting some assignments done for MM and BHG. We have a Campbell/Hoggan family reunion at the end of this week. It's only a sibling reunion (just my bothers and sisters and step brothers and sisters) but there are 13 kids total combined. All but 3 of us are married and so you can imagine how many kids (grandkids) will be there. I can't wait to see everyone and spend time with them! Ben and I are in charge of it... the food, the games, the agenda.. etc. so we decided to hold it at our favorite campgrounds and hot springs.. downata. Love that place!
Well besides house stuff and reunions, school also starts in 2 weeks! Crazy crazy! Luckily I bought most of Allie's clothes this spring at a sale Children's Place was having on all their winter clothes. It was a one day sale that I happened to walk into. A few of my friends and I from Shelley drove down to Utah and went to the outlet malls in Park City. The whole mall was having a store-wide clearance.. but Children's place was having a CRAZY sale.. most things were $.99-$4.99 (for shirts, pants, shoes). I also had a 20% coupon off for my entire purchase, so when it was all said and done I had bought Allie 19 shirts and 7 pairs of pants and my total came to like $28 bucks! CRAZY!! I also bought my boys alot of clothes there too, and at Wal-mart and old navy when they had their winter clearance sales last year. Got most of their pants for $3.00 and shirts for $2.00. We are pretty much set for clothes except Braden who grew WAY more than I thought he would between now and then. He is almost 12 but wears a size 14 in pants because he is so tall! Luckily Parker (who is 11 months younger then him) also grew alot and will fit into the 12's I bought Braden.
Well have a fabulous Monday.. lots of fun stuff to share with you over the next couple of weeks.. class stuff, retreat info and even another surprise.. (I know.. I know.. not that again)..
