Weekend Tales + FP Giveaway Winner

I hope you all had a beautiful sunny weekend!  Here?  It rained & rained.  Then rained some more.  In fact, Cam declared Sunday a stay at home day because it was too stormy to go out.  I really didn't mind it myself, because the past week was full throttle at work.  We are about to leave town for a week so I really needed a day to rest & catch up on our never ending supply of laundry + admire a rainbow:)  Enough about my boring self. 

What you really want to know is who WON the free Freshly Picked Moccasins!!  Am I right??  We are so excited to announce the lucky winner as Fallon Menard!  Congratulations, Fallon!   I hope you & baby enjoy FP moccs as much as we do around here.  A big thank you to all who took the time to enter this giveaway & who continue to read my blog four years into the rambles:)  
Not much to tell about this weekend, except...oh, let's just talk threenagers.  My Cam. The iPad connoisseur is BACK.  He'd completely forgot about it for months...and now it's back with a vengeance   And this momma has the work cut out for her in weaning him from it!  
It all starts out with...let me check the weather, mom.  Let me take a picture, Mom.  And then the next thing I know, like in .5 seconds, he's MAD because the iPad takes too long to load a video OR begins trying to convince me that the one time he picked up toys "last year" is good enough to buy $500+ worth of Puzzingo games.  
Duh, Mom.  What do you know??

Not to mention this little one got t w o.  Not ONE.  But Two spankings at church yesterday.  One for the morning service & another for the evening.  Each time, I had told him at least 34,833 times to stop a behavior & at that point- my threats were as good as a joke.  As I took him out, he was shouting (in a quiet church mind you)...
 "I am sorry mom!  Don't give me a spankin' mom!  We can just talk mom right?  I'm sorry, mom!  I'm sorry."
Yep, it rips my heart in shreds, but I'm afraid we've had one to many "talks."  Any others out there know what I mean?  Aye Aye Aye.  Got to love the threes.  And this is just one of a million reasons as to why I'd love to have my husband home.  A man to assist with discipline would be nice.  Mommy isn't very scary when she says STOP apparently...
Happy Monday, you guys!
May we each be as profitable this week as Cam thinks HE is when he picks up his toys for a day...

Quite an interesting post! Thanks a lot for sharing these photos here. A party that we attended last week at event venues in NYC was equally interesting. All had a fantastic time over there. Everything was awesome in that event.
