Hot Cocoa Day + Glittered Goodies + a Giveaway at Violet's Cottage (and free tutorial download!)

Today is rainy, and so dreary outside. I thought we'd all enjoy a little hot cocoa to get our tummies nice and warm. The kids had their first cup and mmm mmm, liked it! Their's was actually just warmed up chocolate milk :) but that's always yummy!

What a week it's been. I'm not sure if it's the change in the seasons or what, but my kids are fighting naps and just kinda cranky! Yesterday my day started with Bella saying, "I need to go potty.". Me: "OK, Bella let's go potty". Bella: "No, I don't WANT to go potty!". Bella: "Can I have some milk please, Mama". Me: "Sure, Bella. Let's go get some milk". Bella: "No, I don't WANT milk". She is such a girl already! Can't make up her mind. :) But she sure is cute.
I did get to do a little crafting this week. We're having fun doing some decorations for the kid's little Halloween Party playdate at the end of the month. I'm glittering some "eek" letters, which is just about as simple as you can get but SO pretty and cute!
And I thought I'd pass along another banner tutorial for this "CURIOUS" banner that my friend Carrie has on her blog. There's a tutorial and at the bottom of the post she's having a giveaway for some really adorable items. Go over HERE to check it all out! Spend a little time visiting her blog too - it's FULL of inspiration.
I hope you all have a wonderful day! And if I don't get to post over the weekend - enjoy yourself!
