FAMILY REUNION AKA SHOP HOP

I have been smiling for three days straight now. I just love the shop hop as it is like a bi family reunion. I have seen customers I have not seen in awhile and so happy to see them. We started out with our store in Elkhorn from 1997-2006 and then in Gretna from 2006-2008 then off to Fremont. During that time we have met so many wonderful people and funny as some of our customers we now have their children as customers. (Im feeling old) LOL Thank you so much for being a part of our business and we are so thankful for you!

BIRTHDAY MODE

Sorry I have not been posting but I have been in Birthday mode since Friday! My birthday was actually Sunday but it has been one non stop party since Friday night! LOL We even got a hotel room for Saturday night as we had a birthday crop out at shadowlake.

Last night a bunch of friends all took me out to California Pizza Kitchen as they are going out of business Sunday. What a bummer. :( They all got me a gift certificate to Bella Boutique which I have never been to. I am going to go tomorrow and I will give you the scoop. They girlies all said it is my kind of store. hee hee Stay tuned for a review. It will be great to have a new place to shop as I will never go back to the Chick Market. I still have not gotten all my stuff or paid.
:( Very crooked.

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!

Hope you all had a wonderful 4th! The weather turned out just perfect for the night. Praise God. We had fun going to my mom and dads with friends and family and watching old movies of the family. It sure makes you realize how fast time flies. The kids had a blast lighting fireworks and put on quite the show. We went through three batches of homemade ice cream! ( :) )
