My first Miche bag

I went today and picked out my very first Miche bag. I won it online at Woman to Woman magazine. It was donated by my local Miche bag representative Sherry Hammond. I was very excited to win because I have known about the Miche bag for several years. The concept is so simple yet so ingenious. You have a basic "shell" of a bag, and the outside design is interchangeable so you don't have to remove all your stuff from the bag each time you want to use a different color or design to accentuate your mood or wardrobe. You just remove the outer design (it is magnetic) and attach another...and presto--new bag! (minus the hassle of moving everything from one bag to another).
I have to say that Sherry Hammond was a pleasure to meet and deal with. She was very informative and just as patient as she could be seeing as I couldn't make up my mind to choose just one LOL.
I have a party in the works, so if you want to get your own Miche bag just let me know if you can attend or if not, just get with me and I will hook you up with Sherry!

Kasey catches her second fish

I fondly remember my outings with my dad to the river to fish. Myself and my husband try to pass on all that was instilled in us as kids by our parents. Bonding with our kids is very important. It is great when you discover that many of the things that you did as a kid and still love as an adult, are also loved by your children. We took the girls on another outing to the lake to let them cast out their poles...Dora and Barbie respectively, LOL. Well, believe it or not, our oldest Kasey managed to catch her second bass with her Barbie pole. It was great to see the surprise on her face and to hear her laughter. The youngest, Kori, looked on and she was just as excited as Kasey...loving making these memories!

Backyard fun

We recently came across a great deal for a playground for our backyard. It originally was from a city park. It is 33' by 33'. I helped my hubby to put alot of it together, but towards the end we really needed more man power to complete the assembly. We had a pizza day and some family came over to help us out. It is all pretty much done except for some braces under the slides, and the smallest slide needs new bolts since we broke them off in the threads when we took it apart when we bought it. The girls have definitely been enjoying their new play area, especially the shade underneath it. My husband plans to square out an area underneath as a sandbox and also a small deck for their two little chairs. I can't wait to plan a playdate to get all the girls' little friends over to have some fun!
Thanks to uncle Kenny, Shawn, and Perry for helping us out!
