I feel older today

Well, that's because I am older today. It's my birthday!!!
I am celebrating my 37th birthday today.......

I am cleaning up and packing clothes today. When my daughter gets out of school today we will be going camping this weekend at the lake. (I hope it doesn't rain....calling for a 30% chance of rain everyday) It will be Hubby, Daughter and I meeting up with my Sister and her family.
I hope to have plenty of pictures.

SO.....since it's my birthday I think I will do a giveaway!!!!
I am giving away this CUTE mini zipper pouch and mini key fob. What a great way to accessorize your purse....

Between Friday August 29 through Sept. 1st just leave a comment on this post and a way to get in touch with you. I will have my daughter pick the winner on Sept. 2nd. (**Oh and please tell your friends about the giveaway too!**) I will notify the winner after drawing on Sept 2nd.

Have a GREAT weekend!!!

You want a what...?

So my daughter just started Middle School. This year they will change into their gym clothes durning PE class. After a few days of looking for the perfect gym bag we gave up. She decided she wanted a handmade draw string bag to carry her clothes in. So of course being a person that loves to sew, I grabbed some funky fabric and ribbon and came up with a gym bag just for her.

It's large enough to hold her running shoes, shorts, and a shirt. I included a zipper pocket on the inside to hold deodorant and a small bottle of body spritz.
Best part about this bag is it's washable.....and I am sure it will need to be washed....often!!
