First off, PHEEWW! I went unplugged this last week(sorta…I got on Instagram once to see my notifications, and I checked my email everyday), and the simplicity of life was very sweet. Although I guess I need to include that life was very sweet this last week, too, because I was in Disneyland with my family! 

From this end in Nebraska, only Ben and I could make it. And OH MY GOSH, taking care of a baby by yourself is exhausting! Particularly on airplanes. I gained a whole new level of admiration of all those single mothers, and single fathers out there.

So anticipate some major catch up from me this week(as I try to keep up with Ben’s withdrawals from all the constant cooing, holding, and smooching from my family).

Second of all, I don’t think I’ve every told you guys this, but I’m a contributor for Dawn Nicole Designs. Once a month until November, you can find one of my DIY’s over on her blog! 

Here’s a sneak peek from this month’s: a Father’s Day gift DIY.

It’s clever, it’s funny, it’s practical, and best of all, it’s homemade(you know me, I’m a big fan of homemade gifts)!
