Hugged My Heart #3

Here's is my weekly Brady picture. He was riding a Big Wheel at his friend's birthday party. It was a GREAT time. He looks adorable if I do say so myself.

Here is a list of what hugged my heart this week:

1. BEATE'S back! Woohoo! Beate Johns is one of my favorite paper crafters. She took a summer break from her blog and I've been missing her like crazy. She just started blogging again this past week and her creations are as lovely as ever! She also has two great weekly challenges.

2. Jen Del Muro's KISS post. I have never heard this acronym before. KISS stands for "Keep It Simple, Stupid" I definitely need to be reminded of this because a lot of times I feel like "more is more is more is more." You get the idea. And Jen's card is a perfect example of a simple but stunning card.

3. Little Debbie's Smores. If there's one thing that reminds me of summers growing up, it's smores! I love their chocolatey marshmallow-ness! Yummy! These ones are already assembled, you take it out of the package and eat it. How great is that?

4. Little kid's birthdays. We have had roughly a billion baby birthday parties this month and I never tire of them. I love seeing babies shove their heads in cake. I love trying to make toddlers play games. I love party hats and streamers. We have one more this month and our August birthday madness is over. We'll see what September holds for us.

That's it for this week. It's a good one, I think. Don't forget to enter my giveaway HERE! The necklace is DIVINE!


  1. "heart hugs". That's a neat idea to feature on your blogs! Such a cutie also to blog about with Brady! Understandable how it's easy to want to do so. adorable, you have a lot going on by the sounds of it too.

  2. Your son is just a spitting image of you with a little daddy :) He is so handsome!

    Oh, and I just discovered Jen del Muro's blog and I LOVE IT! I love her sketches! She's got great style!

    Now...I'm off to stamp some unity for ya!

  3. What an absolute cutie!! I miss this age! Mine are teenagers now.
    Smiles from Korea,

  4. Gosh - Your little guy is just adorable!! What a sweetheart!

    I love the KISS acronym too, however I like to say: Keep It Simple and SWEET! :) (that's the former Kindergarten teacher in my -- always think the positive ) :)
