peachy keen...



can you believe this peach came from a peach tree in my yard?
i still can't believe i actually HAVE a peach tree...
let alone one that actually produces fruit.
i admit...
i'm NOT a "peach" person.
don't care for them at.all.
they are probably the last fruit i'd ever pick to eat.
however, when my oldest daughter clara came in the house holding the first peach EVER on our tree...
i just HAD to try it.
it. was. heaven!
i'm guessing all of the other peaches i've tried were just inferior all this time.
we were all so excited.

besides sampling fruit around here...
lemonade & sunshine party preps have been underway and going strong.
but...
i've been talking enough about that party...
i figured i'd give you a peek into what OTHER parties people are planning...


in the middle of my own party preps...
i've been working on these invites...
in addition to an ADORABLE "birds & bees" themed invite...
a SECRET project i can't unveil just yet...
and i'm getting ready to start on a "cupcake" themed party invitation.
i'm also anxiously awaiting more details from the "nautical crab party"...
hosted by my sweet friend, kim at the tomkat studio.
it was for her son's birthday party this past weekend.
ADORABLE theme.
(check out the fondant crabs she had made for the party...so cute!)

i'm also collaborating with tiny belles boutique for an upcoming giveaway shes' starting on June 21st.
watch for the details on that...coming SOON!

hope your weekend was wondeful...
i was able to get some things accomplished - that's always a good feeling.
while clara & ema are gone for the week, i had my little cousin kalie come & watch little ella pie so j and i could enjoy saturday afternoon together.
after searching for treasures at renninger's in mt. dora
we ended up in lake mary having the most FABULOUS lunch at the vineyard...
i LOVE it when we just randomly drive/walk by a restaurant, decide to go in and it turn out spectacular!

one more bit of exciting news:
today is day 21 of the "343" challenge...
i'm SO excited to have finished it 100% and i want to congratulate those who've been participating behind the scenes! you ROCK!
and be watching for the next challenge i've dreamed up...
it's unrelated to exercise but still everything to do with making healthy choices...
all-in-all, everything around here is "peachy-keen"...
i hope things are the same for you in your little corner of the world!!

KEEPING IT REAL
the picture of the peach is somewhat misleading.
as picture-perfect as it looks with the leaf attached...
if you turn it around there's a big ole gash/hole where a bird must've started feasting on it...
and this wasn't a picture of the actual FIRST peach ever picked that we tried.
we were too excited to eat that one before i got my camera out. *wink*
this peach is one picked by ema a week after our first, second and third sample...*grin*
