Did You Know....

Once again I'm here to fill your noggin' with what's going through mine, with another version of
Did You Know......
  • Did you know that there are only 166 days left until Christmas. Call me crazy, but I am thinking about Christmas THIS month. YUP! I'm making some Christmas crafts in preparation for the quickly coming day and I don't want to try to shove it all into the month of December so I'm starting now. AND I'll be showing you my little creations when I'm done with them. That way you can have plenty of time to make them if you would like. Kind of a Christmas in July thing! So look for that soon.
  • Did you know that I am celebrating my 40th Birthday with a Birthday Bash this Friday? My BFF (A.K.A. Kathy) is working hard to make sure it is a very special time for me. My actual birthday is next week but who wants to party on a week day? Not me! So we'll be having a DJ and I'm pretty sure I'll be forced to get out there and show how badly I can dance. Ha! Ha! Video camera's will be confiscated at the door. LOL!
  • Did you know that Lowe's has a Build and Grow program? It's such a fun thing to do with your younger children and it's FREE!!! My husband took the boys this past Saturday.
Here's what they created.
And every time you create a project you get a patch to put on the apron that they give you.
AND they give you the goggles and hammer and everything FREE. How cool is that?

Did you know that's all I have for now?

Have a FABULOUS day my friends!



  1. Ok MUST check out the Lowe's thing! We have one in town. My youngest would love that idea!

    Don't even wanna talk about Christmas.....Just sayin'. ;)

    Oh yeah -- HAPPY BIRTHDAY! (only in this household, you would be turning 30-10!)


  2. The boys look like they LOVE doing the Lowe's projects. Look at those smiles!!

    I'm sure your birthday bash will be a ton of fun. Wish I lived close enough to celebrate with you.

    Have a lovely day,

  3. I did NOT know these things ;) but thank you for sharing! I LOVE coming here and learning!!

    Your boys are tooo cute and I think that is just an awesome program they have for this kids!

    I know you are going to have a WONDERFUL party!! I can't wait to hear all about it :)

  4. That's so cool! We may be visiting Lowe's very soon, thanks for sharing that little bit on insight.

    I was wondering if the "Christmas in July" thing had you thinking about Christmas. Actually it's about that time to start shopping isn't it?

  5. You are stressing me out with the Christmas in July my friend - LOL!!! Your boys did a good job! My son did some of those things when he was younger, though I think it was with Home Depot.

    Have a SUPER fun party my sweet friend!! I wanna see the dancing since I won't be there - please!!! :)

    Big did-you-know-that-I-will-have-hidden-cameras-at-your-party size hugs to you!! Hahahahaha! Love you my friend!

  6. Yes, bring on the video! We want to see you "bust a move!" And the boys in the aprons were too cute. When I saw your thumbnail picture on my blog, I thought perhaps you and your pastor's wife wore matching outfits again. :-)

  7. I did know about the Lowe's thing but still have yet to take my kids. Grrr. I always forget. Hey...how about your email me the day before you all go to remind me.. Yeah that sounds great. Thanks! Then I can post a picture and give you credit for helping your aging friend remember Lowe's Saturdays. Sheesh.
    I am getting old and how lucky for you to get a birthday bash. I want to see lots of pictures.

  8. Did you know July is almost half over?! Where on earth is this year going?!

    He took the boys to Lowe's! 8-] Looks like they had a great time. I didn't know about the patches. That is so cool! I think they should have a workshop like that for us older kids. 8-}

    Love ya loads, birthday baby!
    Have a JESUS-filled day! ^i^

  9. Happy 40th, Kim! Welcome to the wild side--soon.. How fun to know you will be celebrating with Kathy. I hope you'll eat chocolate kisses for me.
    Enjoy summer!

    Thinking of you with love,

  10. I love a big birthday bash! Happy Birthday.....

  11. Christmas will defiantly be here before we know it!
