Weekend Round-Up {6-8-13}

lbgc - weekend round-up

So, we've found 3 scorpions in our house so far .... Don't they have somewhere else to hang out?! Seriously, they are gross and scary! The last one we found was in our garage - in one of the glue traps that the exterminator left .... I told Brian we need to buy a gazillion of them if they really work!

Also this week, thanks to my wonderful friends and fans, I finished in 13th place in the Circle of Moms - Top 25 Foodie Moms of 2013! I am sooooo stoked and I can't even begin to tell you how blessed I feel to have your support and encouragement. I appreciate all of your help! 

Here's a look at what happened around my little spot of the blogging world this week:

  2. Congratulations on your finish in Circle of Moms,it's well deserved.

    And those scorpions, don't they know they're infringing on the home of a Circle of Mom's top 25 winner? They need to show a little respect.
