A Month In The Life: A Snapshot {Tuesday Talk #89}

It's been a busy past few weeks!  Two weeks ago, I mentioned we've had a lot going on and that I'd have some big announcements for you this month.

So here's a quick update of our past 4 weeks with a big announcement at the end (which I'm so excited about!):

My 33rd birthday, complete with my daughter's Mary Poppins birthday sign still up from last month!

My husband's 33rd birthday only 8 days later!  Now with new birthday banners for Mommy and Daddy!

L started standing on his own and walking - at 17 months!  (I can't believe this is the best picture I have #thirdchildproblems)

He's been walking along furniture for months, but finally got the confidence to let go!

I've been doing a lot of custom design work for people this past month.  Shower invitations, prayer cards for a church retreat, custom wall art (like the one pictured above!), and anything and everything.  So if there is anything you want, just let me know!

J started preschool!

Last minute, my friend's mom offered to teach her preschool at her house.  There are only a couple students, and it's 2 mornings a week.  Of course, I said yes!  So on her off days, we're doing some preschool activities at home.  I can't wait to share with you our preschool space and the activities we've been doing!

Lots of "bike hikes"!

It's hard work riding behind Mom!

And picnics!

We've had a lot of doctors appointments for myself and our son B:

Pediatric GI doctor.

Scratch test with the allergist.

And finally, his upper endoscopy.  He had to be put under, but he did great!  We told him that he'd have a mask just like his breathing treatments at home so he was golden.

He's such a trooper!  He wasn't scared at any of his appointments and really did a great job considering how much he's been poked and prodded.  Hopefully, we'll have some answers by next week!

And please keep praying!  We have 3 more appointments over the next month!

All new drainage was put in our back and side yard.  A brand new patio is next.  (All of this is thanks to an excessive amount of snow 2 winters in a row.  When it all melted, the over abundance of water damaged the drainage system, cracked up our concrete patio, and heaved our deck into our house.)

The good part about all of this?  The kids were entertained for 3 straight days watching the "diggers" up close!

Notre Dame football has started!!!!!!!  Our first game was on a Sunday so we dressed the part at Mass that morning!


I've been working hard on holiday everything!  All the Halloween and Fall prints are up in the shop. I also have Thanksgiving invitations and table settings (see more about them in my announcement below!).

Next up is Christmas!  Printables will be up by the end of the week.  And I'm excited to announce that I'll be designing Christmas cards this year!  Here's a sneak peek!!!! 

EDIT (9/15/16): Custom Christmas Photo Cards are now listed!!!  You can see all of your options here!

Some Christmas prints are available now too!  (There will be more to come in the following days!)  You can see them here!

And now for my big announcement! 

I was asked to be a part of the Dating Divas' Fall Printables Bundle

This amazing Fall Printables Bundle will go live next Wednesday, September 21st!

There are over 20 printable sets included, featuring the Dating Divas, Lolly Jane, Thirty Handmade Days, and so many more.  It includes everything from printable wall art to holiday banners to date night ideas to planners and so much more!  (You can check out the full package here!)

Included in the bundle are my Thanksgiving Dinner Invitations and Place Cards Set, 2 of my best selling wall art printables (this one and this one), and my Thank You card set!  (And I'm offering YOU even more - keep reading!)

It is an amazing deal!  Even if you only bought everything I made, you couldn't get them this cheap.  The whole bundle will start off at $15 and then increases a little bit each day.  You can only buy it for three days, and then it's gone for good!  Mark your calendar to make sure you don't miss out!

I'm sooooo excited about this!!!  So to you, my lovely readers: anyone who orders through my link next week will get 2 additional wall art printables from my shop - any two printables you want!  (I have over 130 to choose from - see all of your options here!)

You can sign up here so you'll be the first to know when it's live!

And last but not least, we're enjoying this fall weather!

So what have you been up to during this last bit of summer?

Happy Tuesday!
