Help Bring TCBY to NWA!




I don't know about you, but I love me some TCBY! I had forgotten quite how yummy it was until the other day, on our way to a Michelle and David's wedding, we stopped at one in Little Rock and I had the yummiest dessert my prego tastebuds could imagine: No-Sugar-Added, Fat-Free Mountain Blackberry Frozen Yogurt with blackberries and raspberries on top. It was AMAZING, and the whole dessert only had about 150 calories! Perfection.

So anyway, it got me wishing we had a TCBY here in NWA, but I didn't know what to do about it other than just hope. Then, lo and behold, I just read on the Celebrate blog about a TCBY franchise giveaway they're doing! And one of the 10 national finalists is in NWA! Glory!





But in order to make it happen, Jared and Sarah Greer need our votes! Click here to cast your ballot. It just takes a minute, and every vote is one step closer to having White Chocoloate Mousse right here at our fingertips... Mmm... So go vote already!!! : )

It isn't very often that Kori and I manage to get a picture made together. Usually one or the other of us is behind the camera! Thanks to her sister Jamie for snapping this picture on our Easter cookout!

Great Kids' Sales - This Weekend!

Our sister-in-law April is a member of the Northwest Arkansas Mothers of Multiples Club, and every year they get together and have a big sale of their gently worn items, and last year it was awesome! I got great deals on several cute dresses and sweaters for Norah, and on a pair of cute little white Keds that she wears all the time that looked like they had never even been worn! Here are the details!

NWA Mothers of Multiples Spring Consignment Sale!
Join us for our 11th annual Spring consignment sale at Trinity Fellowship Church Gymnasium, 1100 East Rolling Hills Dr., Fayetteville, AR (Turn on Rolling Hills from College Ave., the church is 1.5 blocks on the left. Gym is behind the church. Watch for signs. )
The sale is Friday, April 16th from 7 am to 2 pm and Saturday, April 17th from 7 am to 12 pm. Many items are half price on Saturday!
Items for sale include gently worn baby/children/teen clothing and shoes, baby equipment & furniture, maternity clothing, movies, books, games, toys, furniture and housewares....Something for everyone!
This sale is CASH ONLY! No checks or credit cards accepted.
The NWA Mothers of Multiples Club is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing support for moms of twins, triplets and higher order multiples. We are the ONLY non-profit organization holding a consignment sale in the NWA area and we value your support!
See you at the sale!
Last year I went by on Saturday... I think it was a little more picked over than it would have otherwise been, but most of the items were an extra 50% off, so I was able to get some exceptionally good deals. Check it out! On a slightly less frugal note, I also got an e mail about a sale that we went to last year called the NWA Boutique Show.
Last time it had tons of booths featuring hand-made and custom items from crafty girls in the area... Tons and tons of bows and little pillowcase dresses, signs to hang up in rooms, one-of-a-kind jewelry, unique picture frames, etc., etc. The items were so much fun to look through, and they had so many cute things for little girls that I thought I would never manage to drag myself out of there! Here is the info from the e mail:

Busy Week!

We have had a very busy week this week, without even a spare moment to blog! We've had every kind of shoot you can imagine, from home shoots, baby shoots and families to fashion shoots, food shoots, and even a magazine cover shoot with 2010 Miss Arkansas USA Adrielle Churchill!

It's been fun, and we'll be blogging tons of pictures soon, but in the meantime, here's a quick maternity shot of Kori at 18 weeks. Shiloh is growing fast and kicking all over the place, and Kori is feeling fantastic.





Now back to our regularly scheduled editing and shooting!

Heaven Help Us!

DISCLAIMER, THIS WAS AN APRIL FOOL'S JOKE. A PRETTY GOOD ONE HUH?!



Well, we got a big surprise, and a bit more than we bargained for this morning when we went in for an ultrasound to try to see if "the baby" was a boy or girl...

Kori about fell out of the fancy ultrasound massage chair when they started the ultrasound and found this!





Not one, not two, but THREE BABIES! It's TRIPLETS! This means that in a few short months, we're going to have twice as many kids. Say a prayer for us... We're going to need it! : )
