Catching Up

I know my post have been few and far between lately. Well I am hoping to change that. I am officially a one job woman now and I even got a promotion. So my new full time second job is going to be this blog here. So I am going to do a little catching up…
 
Travel: Well we went to Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge for a few days in April. The day we arrived down there was the day the helicopter crashed killing five people. My heart goes out to those affected by the crash. We are getting ready to go to Grand Rapids, MI for a few days here very soon. We have done two Cumberland Falls’ weekends with the kids. Now those were a ball. Well the first one was a ball, the second one the babies were sick so it was not as much fun. But of course our big trip this year is still to come. I’m going to Disney World! Yes again! This is a family trip in October where my three favorite people under the age of eight will be going too. I can’t wait to see how the one and two year old reacts when they see it for the first time. 


Baking/Cooking: Well this Southern Belle finally had one of her dreams come true. I got my KitchenAid Stand Mixer for Christmas so I have become the cake from scratch queen. I love it! Some days I will just look at it and think I am so lucky to have it. Cooking on the other hand I have not done too much of that. 


Reading: Since late last year I have been obsessed with the Dare Valley Series of Books by Ava Miles and then the Dare River Series and now the Dare Valley Meets Paris novellas. I can’t wait for the next Dare River now. I also read the newest Catherine Bybee book, “Doing it Over”, plus the fourth book in the In Dixie Series by Beth Albright, “Stardust in Dixie”, and then there was the final in the Crossfire Series by Sylvia Day, “One With You”. Boy I really am into series! I loved all those books though. 


Auntie: Beside the two trips to Cumberland Falls with the kids, I took the seven year old a girl’s day one day when I was off. We went to the local butterfly show, that was my first time going in years, I don’t think she liked it too much but I did. We also recently as a whole family did the horse park in Lexington, that was cool but I think the two year old how the most fun of any of us. The one year old was scared of the horse but she did well. Of course the hardest part right now for this Auntie is not being able to tell the seven year old we are going to Disney in October, her mommy doesn’t want to tell her till we are getting in the car to leave. 


Southern Belle Style: I love saying shirts. One of my newest ones I purchased especially for the seven year old “Suck it up Buttercup”. I always want to tell her that when she starts whining about something. 

Well I think that about covers everything I have been up too. I will keep you posted on my happenings and not go so long in between posts. Thank you for continuing to read Southern Belle Charm, without you the readers this blog would be nothing. I hope everyone has a happy and safe Memorial Day.
