taking a little break

without meaning to, I am taking a little break.
I will be back in full swing by the end of the month.
We are heading to South Carolina next week for a vacation.
I will be back soon and I will share all that we have been up too, and I'll be linking back up to all the link ups.
 Hope everyone is doing well. I might try to sneak a post or two in this week, we'll see.
Oh, and I am thinking that I need a new look too ... not sure yet what I want to do ... any suggestions?

Gussey Sews inspiration workshop- pamper yourself

Gussy Sews Inspiration Workshop!

today's inspiration is pamper yourself.

The most effective way to relax myself has been a full body massage.

I have only had two, both gifts from my husband.
They were the most wonderful things ever.
I was so relaxed afterward.
My favorite part is the feet.
If you haave never had one, you should get one.

next would be a maniacure and a pedicure, I love those too.
The most common way I pamper myself is to sneak away to get my hair cut and styled.

wiww {Tatum edition}

yesterday Tatum wore her new purple dress.

She loved it soo much she was dancing around looking at herself in Nanny's mirror.


We watched the fireworks at my old high school, Coshocton High School,  Monday night.
A couple of friends  walked down with Van, Petey, Tatum and I.
Ollie hung out with daddy because he doesn't like the loud noise.
We sat up on the hill with a blanket.

Petey sitting on the blanket.

hanging out @ Salt Fork

Sunday we headed to Salt Fork.
Sunday night we had a cook out @ my in laws camper.
A couple of Josh's friends, their wives and kids. Josh's brother and his girlfriend were there too.
Then later, the guys went fishing and the kids and wives headed to the playground.
The next morning it was cloudy and rainy but we went swimming anyway.
We had fun, we had the beach almost to ourselves.

Then later in the day we went to the playground when the sun came out.

We had a lot of fun!

Fun in the pool Saturday

Last Saturday, before we left to go camping, we blew up Ollie's pool that he got for his birthday.
The kids had a blast. It was so hot out!
