Happy Birthday!!

I really need to get back updating my blog. If you read my last
blog we moved from California back to Utah for a bit. So the
transition has left me alittle..well busy and unorganized. I had
to put my Etsy shop on vacation, and I'm trying to unpack all my
crafting supplies to get at it again.

I haven't fell short on visiting the local thrift stores!! ;)
In my busy days being a mom, wife, and being
a entrepreneur, juggling various projects, I always
seem to find time to shop for collectible goodies!!
Oh wait till you see the goodies I found in just one day's
visit...I'll have the pictures up in my next post!

What I was meaning to blog about was the birthdays
that are celebrated here in June. My baby girl Amelie
turned one June 1st, and we had a fun "Puppies and Princess"
party theme. I had my birthday this past Wednesday and turned...
well does that really matter? ;)
Then after checking my blogs I follow,
today I realized Stephanie aka Nie Nie from NieNie Dialouges is
celebrating her birthday too!

In honor of Nie's big day, The Sweet Tooth Fairy Bakery
is hostinga cupcake fundraising event,
inspired by their
VanNIElla Squared Cupcakes.
If you're in the Provo, UT area today
June 27th Saturday. Do stop in,
they'd be ever so delighted to have you.

Also today I was going to take a trip down to Orem, Ut
and visit the Bijou Market boutique/craft show event,
it sounds like fun!

The "Simple Life"

Sorry I've been away for awhile. I have had a very busy past few weeks! We recently moved from California to Utah!! My husband is from Utah and his whole family lives there. Soon after we were engaged we moved there for about 2 years. A couple months before our baby girl was born we moved to California- where I'm from and all of my family lives. We were there for a year but found ourselves struggling with the affects of the economy there. We have bigger plans for our future and our family, and it seemed those plans where nowhere near in our sight. Don't get me wrong I loooove California for many reasons, the biggest reason my mom aka Saturdayfinds. ;) She is my BFF and a wonderful grandma to my girl Amelie. It broke my heart to leave her again and take Amelie away from her too. I know though she understands that this is the best for our little family right now.

The upside is that there are many great things about the thrift stores, estate sales, craft stores and craft/boutique shows!! I also have always had a place in my heart for that country feel. The country/cottage style of homes with white picked fences and large backyards. Farms, barns, old abdoned train cars and train tracks, and of course the the huge surrounding mountains. As you drive down the streets you see these homes right out of the romantic homes magazine.

Where were living (at my in laws- temporarily), the backyard has no fence and backs to farms, so it seems to go for miles. The neighbors across the street have horses, a rooster who roams the front yard, and wild peacocks!! Yes peacocks!

There also some many other things in or around Utah, like Moab where the red rocks are, the sand dunes, hot springs, places to go tubing down rivers, tons of camping spots, and the skiing of course in the winter. Not only do they celebrate 4th of July but July 24th Pioneer Day. Both having amazing firework shows! I cna't forget Sundance Film Festival too, that's always fun to mingle with the celebs and see some films.

I have already hit up some of the local thrift stores and craft shops like Hobby Lobby. So needless to say this city girl is enjoying the "Simple Life". ;)
