a sunday in muskogee, ok

We spent all day yesterday in Muskogee, OK. Matt's cousin asked us to come and minister at his church for the morning and evening services.

That afternoon was our first trip to the pumpkin patch. We had a great day with Phil & Sarah and twins.
We had a great service that night too.
A knee was more pain and full motion restored.
Carpal Tunnel more tingling or pain in the hands.

Those are the things that Matt & I live for.

Saturday was the show.

A big thanks to my sister for all her help! These shows are alot of work:)

Strawberry, yummy!

When I was a little girl our Sunday School teacher would make a batch of cupcakes for the birthday girl or boy in the class. That means we got cupcakes on Sunday morning about 6 or 7 times a year! These weren't just any cupcakes either! She had a secret icing recipe that was super sweet and always tart! We had our choice between orange, cherry, strawberry or lemon. I always went for the strawberry! I pulled a few strings and got that yummy icing recipe for myself.
The finished product is a moist strawberry cake with tart strawberry icing. Brings back memories!

Encouragement Please!

I'm having trouble staying motivated these days! Summer activities have kept me busy and can you believe I haven't made a bow in over a month!?! Thank goodness for good employees and all the down time I took advantage of this winter. My stashing are quickly diminishing...see?

My ribbons are a mess as well. How about some encouragement?? The first 3 people to respond to this will get one free bow made from one of these messy bolts of ribbon!

Ok...really...I have to get to work. No more goofing around!

Long time, no blog

I haven't been on here as much as usual. I actually got a little addicted to facebook! Life around here has been great. The Parker school headband order is finish for the year and that is always a big relief.

The pool is up in the back yard and has been begging me to jump in and as soon as it does that is where you will find me! We have taken advantage of all these cool nights sippin' sweet tea on the back porch, one of my favorite things to do in the summer.

I still love my job working at Bella Vita Spa & Salon. New hours at work means more time with hubby!

As for as the bows go, I don't have any new designs to share. I've just been keeping up with my wholesale clients making sure they are stocked with the basics. That is pretty much all I do in the summer. When August hits, it's back to school time and sales pick up. In the mean time I enjoy the quiet summer season as I prepare for a crazy fall!

Maybe next time I blog I'll actually have something fun to show you!
