Hi everyone!! It was a fun week.. but it feels good to be home. Your own bed always feels good. lol I have so many photos from CHA that I want to show you.. I'll be sharing them all , over the next week. I just got home last night, so I'm still unpacking , doing laundry and lov'n on my pups. lol

I am sharing this photo today, because it's so fitting , since today is another of Taylors Cupcake Challenge days. What a sweetie this girl is! ( and her mom too). It was so good to get to spend time and chat with both of them again. I think we have that "midwesterners" bond. lol Taylor and her family are originally from Iowa.

I've missed blogging this past week. I even brought my laptop in hopes I'd be able to share photos while I was there..but there was just not enough hours in the day. I have so many to show you.. I cant wait. It's always fun to see new product..but most of all, to see old friends and meet new ones... and I did alot of that! I'll be sharing lots of photos over the next few days.

I missed you guys!!
