~A Peek Into Our Week~

My new Yankee candle arrived in the mail yesterday.  I had been waiting for this one to be released.  I thought I would have to wait until March.  I love this one!
Here is a photo of Steven and I on our way to Lawrence this last weekend. 
On the drive down to Lawrence, we stopped at Cracker Barrel for some soda and candy.  (We had already had lunch and just felt like a little snack.)

Here is Lauren enjoying her soda.  It was a beautiful day, so we sat on the rockers outside and listened to music.
Megan and Justin played a game of Checkers.

Here are the little treasures I brought back with me from Lawrence.  The candle I found for a great price at Bed Bath & Beyond.  The stickers were from Hobby Lobby.  My Mom and my Cousin Teri and I all went to McDonald's for coffee and then to Hobby Lobby.  I had such a nice time.  I wish I lived closer to them, so we could spend more time together.  They are both ladies that I truly feel blessed to call family, and that I look up to.

Here are the cupcakes that Lauren and her friend Britney made for their friend the other day.
We stopped at a little Coffee shop in Wamego, Ks.  They actually roast their own beans.  I bought a bag to take home with me.
I decorated my little cookbook with some sparkly blue paper and stickers that I got at Hobby Lobby.  I think it looks so cute.

Here is the little paper clip that I got from Etsy for my organizer.  I think it is so cute.  This has been such a nice week.  I loved going to Lawrence to see family and friends.  We got to spend time with my sweet little niece Sarah.  I also got to briefly see my niece Madison and my brother Matt.  My nephew Liam came to spend the night with Justin, so they had a nice time.  I got to hang out with one of my best friends, Angelina also.  It was so much fun, I hated it to end.  Lauren got her hair cut, and she got side bangs.  It looks really good on her!  I will have to get her to let me take a photo, so I can put it on my blog.  Well, I better get going on my house work and have some breakfast.  I hope you all have a cozy week.  Hugs.  Juli


  1. Please,please ,please do a post about those cupcakes!!!!!

    1. They were made with a mix, then they used a melon baller to scoop a bit out in the middle. They filled that with a mixture of cool-whip and crushed Oreo's, and then made butter cream frosting with Oreo's and used a pastry bag to put the frosting on, and topped with some crushed Oreo's.

  2. Dear Juli ... I love all that you shared here. Thank you for a day filled with sweet pleasures and simple blessings. It was such a beautiful day to be out and about and the very best part was to spend it with you and your mom. It was good to visit with your hubby and your dad as well. Thank you so much for the gift bag filled with many little treasures. I love each and everyone. I am mailing a little package out to you today ... so be looking for mail in your mailbox. Love & Hugs ♥ Teri

    1. Dear Teri,
