Livin' Life!

Happy Friday everyone!! Are these weeks just flying by for all of you?! I can't believe we are so close to heading back to school already!! So... I guess this is a good week to slow down and join us in the Frosted Designs challenge!! Our lovely and very talented Kim is hosting the challenge this week!! In honor of her grandmothers birthday, she picked the theme.... Celebrate Life!! How great is that?!! Happy Birthday Kim's grandma!!


A few years ago, my parents invited my husband and I to Cabo for a vacation! We had soooo much fun!! We kept pretty busy while there.... we spent one day driving ATVs on the beach!! I was cracking up as my parents were flying down the beach shooting sand everywhere from their tires!! We swam with dolphins... which I must admit was sooooo much fun!! And we also did a dinner cruise at sunset!! That is where this picture was taken!! We were having such a blast on the boat and this picture reflects that!! I threw in the Lucky card behind the photo to remind me how lucky I am to have two healthy, active parents. About 13 years ago, my father had a severe heart attack and we almost lost him. I think it was a wake up call for my family and now we all tend to slow down and enjoy the moments we have with each other!!

All of the scrappy goodness for this LO came from my June and August Lucky Girl Kits which also happens to be our sponsor for the month of August at Frosted Designs!! Let us know how you Celebrate Life by linking up a project!! By doing that, you will be entered to win a Lucky Girl Kit for yourself!!

Thanks for coming by today! I am in Chicago where I survived a trip to the American Girl store yesterday and now today we are just going to hang out and do a little shopping!! Thank you for all you comments!!
