Busy, Busy, Busy Weekend!

Hope you all had a good weekend! 
I did, it was busy but good. We went and got our 5th Wheel from the storage unit to get it ready for a new adventure we will be taking soon. It is always so fun to get it ready for a trip.  I just sat in it today for about an hour and loved every minute of it! I can't wait to get it out on the road. 
I snapped this picture with my iPhone while Dan was backing it into our driveway. 

We are headed to Louisville, KY for a CKC (Creating Keepsakes Convention)! I've never set up a booth at a consumer show but recently decided that I wanted to try a couple and see how they turn out. 
And since my 40th Birthday is a few days after the show we are going to stay in Louisville and be tourist! I'm a big Kentucky Derby fan (watch it every year with my g-ma) so we are going to tour Churchill Downs, the Derby museum and celebrate my 40th b-day! So if anyone has any other suggestions about that area please let me know. 

I also gave Bella her "Spring" hair-do! Shaved her all down (you can see the before and after pictures below), Bella loves it! She runs and jumps around like a puppy, like she lost 20 lbs! 
Bella is going to Louisville with us and CKC too, so if you are in the area come by and meet her! 
Now I know this picture is just of a lady and a little boy but its so much more than that....
Max (one of my sisters twins) is sitting on my lap telling be all about his day. This is 
HUGE!! Mollie, his twin sister, along with Cade and Ellie, his older brother and sister are ALWAYS
happy to see aunt Nikki, running to my arms for big hugs and kisses. But not Max, he is a momma's boy and always keeps he's distance from me, until TODAY! Max ran and jumped in my arms when he saw me and then later crawled on my lap to have a little chat, this has never happened before! 
Love that little guy!!
It was a successful weekend for sure!!

I hope everyone has a great week! 

Oh and I do have a few "Spring Fling" kits left too!

There are lots of original and one and only restaurants here in Louisville. Gauthas is a superb german restaurant. Third Avenue Cafe and Del Frisco's are also among my favorites. Of course you could also eat at The Brown Hotel and get the original "hot brown". Enjoy!!
