What we’ve been up to & A Link & Mingle…

Just a few bits of what our life has been like lately and at the end a little Link & Mingle Party for my fellow blogger friends:

I got to meet my bloggy BFF Sarah a little over a week ago!!!  She and her family stopped by our house overnight while on their way to Boston for some doctor’s appointments for her sweet daughter Peyton.  It was SO awesome to meet her and her family!

They left and THE SAME DAY the Blank Canvas Tour rolled into town…er our basement.  Check out their work here.  It was a fabulous few days filled with many conversations about college, homeschool, travels, kids and the like.  Oh, and what would our visit be without a photo shoot AND a video?  Yeah…we had fun!!!  We all missed them when they left.

A few short days later our house is on the market…SO after they left we got out the boxes, rolled up our sleeves and with the help of Meme and Pop Pop got some things boxed up and tried to “stage” our home as much as possible with 4 little people running around.  We’ll see how this whole keeping it clean thing goes…

Here's a few more photos showing what's typical around here.

Yeah...she's our 4th child...don't judge!

DON'T FORGET to enter my current GIVEAWAY HERE!!!
