My heart is happy and full!

Today I am feeling very blessed that whenever Sean leaves for a few days, that I have great friends that  I get to spend a little extra time with and that is one of my tricks when Sean leaves, making my friends a priority. Occasionally, I take an evening or a morning to myself for an extra coffee, or a little ice cream treat and a bit of pampering. However, I love that bit of extra time to see my friends although I certainly do miss Sean.

Starting with lunch with a friend on Friday then seeing a friend and her 6 month old twins, my weekend began on a great note and just continued!
Saturday was the highlight of my weekend in meeting up with Katie, Kasey and Jamie. It is like us four girls have always known each other and I am grateful to blogging to have brought us together. We started off at Starbucks and ending up taking a cupcake break!


And us!

Also, I want to thank you everyone who voted for me in the styling contest and help spread the word about the contest and I am blessed to say that with all of you, I won the contest. The winner of the pairs is suppose to be contacted via email, so check your email everyone and if you won, I would love for you to tell me!

I am very blessed and my heart is overflowing with all the wonderful friends I got the chance to hang out a bit more with this weekend and I was a bit of a Suzy homemaker making jars of homemade applesauce this weekend which I will be sharing with you all the recipe later this week.

And of course my heart is always happy and full because of these three goobers!


Also congrats of Krista for winning my Hat Attack giveaway!
Oh also, sorry there is so much in today's post but Alisha, Ashley and I are hosting a Christmas holiday ornament swap!

We are spreading the word now but the official sign-up is on November 26. Hope many of you will join us!
