Remember me?

I'm back! I didn't intend to take such a long break from blogging. My husband went on a business trip and took our laptop, which meant I had a mini vacay from the computer! I could still check my email and such on my phone and kindle, but I am a terrible typist on those little keyboards!

Here's a quick recap of the last couple of weeks, mostly borrowed from my instagram feed (are you following me there?)

I was featured over at the My Stars blog! Come read all about me and how I define "modern".

The kids all started school. First up, our baby boy Sawyer. He turned three and started preschool last week.

Lumpy and his Forehead go to school. :)

As you can tell, he was totally heartbroken to leave his momma. NOT. He is so proud and excited that he's such a big boy now.

Teamwork. Happy 3rd birthday little Lump!

Yes, that is a store bought decorated cookie. #momfail #phoningitin He saw it, wanted it, and I couldn't say no. I did make him a chocolate cake for his birthday party last weekend though...

Back to school! Kgtn 2nd & 3rd grades.

The other kids started school the next morning. 3rd, 2nd, and Kindergarten! They are super excited about their classes this year - we'll see how long it lasts.  Zach was supposed to bring a stuffed animal the first day, I had to force him to bring Lion. He's way too grown up for that kind of stuff now, don't you know?

Miss Ruby is actually a Mr! He's been practicing his crowing.

My other babies, the chickens, have had a rather rough month. We are down to 5 chickens. There was another snake incident (I've killed two black snakes that were in the coop eating my girls) and our dog killed several of them as well. I just hope we can keep these alive, we haven't even gotten any eggs yet! One of our girls turned out to be a rooster, so Mr. Ruby entertains us with his crowing and prancing around.  AJ calls him Big Rubes.

I met Whitey Morgan last night! The music was awesome, we had a great time!

Troy and I even snuck off to Wichita for a date night. We met up with my cousins and and my BFF from high school for dinner, and then on to a show with Whitey Morgan and the 78's. If you are into honkytonk, steel guitar, or just good old country music, check them out. It was an awesome show, and in a small bar, with maybe 50 people? We had a blast. We even got to meet Whitey Morgan!

5 jars of sweet & spicy mustard! My peppers have not done well this year so I'm happy I got enough for a small batch.

I canned some spicy mustard. Can't wait to baste this on grilled chicken!

I've cut fabric for a few swaps, but there hasn't been a lot of time for sewing. I get to go to our MQG retreat this Saturday, super excited as it's my first quilt retreat and I can't believe I get to spend an entire day sewing! I have a lot of work to do on my Mirror Ball challenge quilt.

What have you been up to?
