I'm still here & little joys from the week!

Hello Ocean Dreamers...

Just wanted to do a quick update to let you know that I'm still here, just really busy! Let me update you really quickly:

*Before my mom and I went off to Montana, which you'll be reading about next, my brother had his 21st Birthday. I can't believe he's that old already and this is what I got him since he's getting a degree to become a sport's trainer.
My brother LOVES maple bars, hence why we had his birthday cake made with them. Delish!

*On our way to Montana to visit with relatives and help my Grandma pack up her house (see next joy of the week,) I snapped a picture of all of the goodies I like to keep near me while my mom drove. Check out the heart rock I found for BK in between my feet!
* I've been in Montana for the past 10 days helping my Grandma get all packed up to move from her house to an apartment. It's been fun discovering treasures and old pictures, but there is so much to pack! Here's a picture of my mom when she was a little girl. Isn't she just the cutest?!
*Last weekend a bunch of my cousins and their children were here. I only get to see my cousins probably only once a year because we're scattered around in different states. There were 9 kids (second cousins) under the age of 12 running around all from 3 of my girl cousins. My aunt, mom, Grandma, and a few of the husbands were around as well. It was so enjoyable catching up with everyone and meeting my cousin's newest addition to her family, baby Grace who was sick last weekend but oh so sweet.
 She's so cute even with a runny nose!
*The kids entertained us with their lemonade stand when we decided to have a garage sale for my Grandma because she has to down size a lot!
So it's official...I felt a bit left for not yet having kids cousin who is my same age already has 3! But I know there is timing for everything and right now I'd just be happy if I got engaged, lol!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I'll be around to visit your blogs soon when I'm not surrounded by boxes, lol. xoxo.
