Currently…

So today I’ve decided to join in with Becky of Choose Happy’s Currently Link up for the first time… Fun fun! 😉 You should join in and link up with us!

Currently I am….

Photographing… my sweet girl in the midst of her naps. I know this napping thing won’t last forever and she’s so cute when she’s snoozing!

Klara and Tate Sleeping

Enjoying… sitting outside on our back porch with my Klara girl. It’s one of her favorite things and the weather is SO nice right now!

Klara Outside

Working on… getting my 10,000 steps a day with my FitBit tracker. I’ve been joining in some challenges with friends to see who gets the most steps throughout the week. I have yet to win a single challenge!!! Must step up my game! Anyone have a FitBit? Let’s be friends!

FitBIt

Excited for… my niece is coming to spend some of her Spring Break with us! Klara just loves her and I have missed getting to spend time with her since we moved and she moved. Anyone have ideas for fun things to entertain a teen over break??

Klara and Taylor

Loving… days spent with the hubs and Klara on horseback. He’s trying to rope more now that work has settled down and Klara is getting braver every time she gets to ride our horse, Lady. Even going a tiny bit all by herself!

Nate and Klara on Lady

What are YOU up to currently??

So real quick, here are the features from last week’s Fancy This Fridays party… Then I have to run to little miss Klara’s two month doctor appointment!! Busy, busy around here!!!

First up, how darling is this First Birthday Dress shared by Diana of Diana Meredith Designs! Her little Audrey is just a doll, right?!

Happy Friday and Happy Labor Day weekend!!! It’s been a busy week on Truly Lovely this week! In case you missed it I shared the Rustic Mason Jar Centerpieces I created for my friend’s bridal shower. I’ll have more photos from that next week! I also shared a website for making fun personalized products and a sandwich that sounds AMAZING! To round out the week I talked about my skin post-baby.

We’ve also decided to re-open sponsorship on Truly Lovely starting in September. We are now offering only TWO options for sidebar ads, a swap ad and a sidebar banner ad. There are only three banner ads available to provide for maximum exposure and attention paid to the promotion of your site! There are still two banner ads available and a few swap ads! Check out our Advertise page if you’re interested.

So, what have YOU been up to this last week! Link up with us and share!!! In the meantime, here are the features from last week’s Fancy This Fridays party!!!

First up, speaking of bridal showers, Ashley of Ashley’s Dandelion Wishes shared a cute DIY bridal shower! LOVE this cute hitched banner!!

Happy Friday friends!!! Kassi here this week! Things have been crazy busy around here lately, thus the lack of regular posting. Kayli started school again yesterday. I’m hosting a bridal shower for one of my best friends tomorrow. Lots of crafting has been going on for that! So instead of sharing what we’ve been writing this week, we want to see what you’ve been up to!!!

Here are the features from Fancy This 140!

First up, I am really digging these Pom Pom Pens from Katie at The Crafty Blog Stalker! They’re colorful and fun, plus they use up your fabric AND washi tape stash!! Win-win!!

Next, Debbie of Simple Joys of Home shares with us how to test an egg for freshness. I knew there were ways to do it, but have never really tried… Now I know! haha.

And to round out this week’s features, remember these fun bottle pendant necklaces from your teen/childhood years? I always loved these. Well, Artsy VaVa and her daughter, Carrie, created a Fairy Dust Bottle Pendant. So cute, right!? And a fun project to do with your kiddos!
