Spring Break...I'm Tired (& Wins)

The kids Spring Break started this week, actually last Friday.  We really didn't make any plans to go anywhere special, nor do we really have the funds right now.  I've been trying to be creative as far as coming up with things to do but honestly I'm pooped out! 
Thank God my husband is taking off work tomorrow (somewhat) and we have nice plans for an Easter egg hunt on Saturday.  Sunday we will be hosting Easter Dinner at our house, my SIL, BIL & nephew will be joining us:)
 
We were able to go to the beach last Saturday, unfortunately I forgot my camera so I wasn't able to get any pictures.  We did however find some really pretty shells that I brought home and washed...my kids love looking for seashells:)
 

 
Yesterday I took the boys shopping and out to lunch downtown while my daughter was taking a class and my husband worked.  They hugged me so tight last night and said thank you, it was the best day ever!
It's funny how the littlest and unplanned things make them so happy.  I think the fact that it was just me with them made it special too:)
Wanted to share a couple of items that I won recently!
 
This adorable Quilted Star Table Topper is from Kelly at Scarecrow Cabin.
(I love to show how things come wrapped so nice:)
 

 
It is really pretty....I love it, thanks Kelly!
 
 
These cute hearts I won are from
Can you believe these are made from a cereal box!  She cuts strips, rolls them and then paints each one...phew, thats a lot of work but well worth the results!
 
 
She also included a gift card to Hobby Lobby!  Thank you so much JoAnn!
 
Thank you all for stopping by and wishing you a Good Friday tomorrow:)

Do you make things with your shells Lori? I have a bunch from the Outer Banks. The hearts are really pretty.
