My Weekend and My New Rzr!

I am very much a family person, I love my family, and I love anything that I can do with my family. Well about a year ago my husband started getting involved with a group of ATV enthusiasts that were local who plan really great events. So that has been our new thing, ATV's . Our son has a little four wheeler, and my husband has had somewhere around 7 different four wheelers. 

I was commisioned to take the group photo, which is what you see above! We had over 30 people there riding with us! 

The place that we rode is called Red River motor Trails, and they have this place called the Red Bull Barn. We were allowed to hop the fence to get in there for a picture. You will see My son up above posing for a picture in front of the barn.

Here is a picture of Me and Robert in our RZR! This is my new toy, and its so nice when you are riding with kids! So much better then trying to ride with 2 people on a four wheeler.

Our friends Justin and Courtney driving my RZR. He also has a RZR but its not as cool or as modified as mine. So we had to give him a chance to drive it down in the sand pit!

 Here is Krissy driving my RZR with me in the Passenger seat, this was just after we decided to take the RZR into the River. Notice we are dry, thats because we had to go back and change, or freeze. Justin and Courtney are in their RZR next to mine. You can see a difference right away in the two RZRs. 

Tons of fun was had, and great family time! I cooked all weekend for most of the people that were camping. It was nice and relaxing and the weather was perfect for some fun.

Holy Cow We had a Pinterest Party !!!

This post is a few weeks in the making, with many hours of planning all coming together! Several amazing sponsors and tons of fun happened! The first official Pinterest party!

So many amazing ladies, and so much great crafty fun! It really is cool to see what everyone comes up with on their own! 

This is the spread of food, and probably one of the most impressive spreads of food i have ever seen! Everyone was challenged to come up with a recipe that they found on Pinterest! We had things from Banana Pudding to Rocky Road Brownies to Hawaiian Ham Sandwich's! I think w had somewhere around 10 different dip choices as well! Everyone of which was fan freaking tastic!

 We had some amazing sponsors for the Party! From Celebrating home and Mary Kay consultants all the way to nifty crafts supplies and fabulous cards!

The Classy Cactus Antique Mall


Caitlin on the left painting her T onto her burlap, and the wreath table on the right!

My mom and my sister were great! They had no clue they would be sitting at the cricuts the whole night! We learned something, that we need to cut things before the party!

More wreath making this was a buzzing table!

This is a basket of some of the completed items! Dont you love the way the burlap letter turned out?

A couple of variations on the coffee filter wreath. Cara added little white roses into her wreath to give it a bit of a difference!

Special thanks to all of the amazing people involved in our party! It took a lot of work but it was well worth it! The Sponsors were great, the ladies were fun to hang out with! The Classy Cactus Antique Mall was the Perfect Venue to host this in! 

We had a blast, and I hope you can join one in the future!

We have 20 people registered for the event, which we are now holding in the back of a antique mall! I have been super busy collecting the supplies for 20 people to do this! On top of finding some really great sponsors for this project! It really has turned into a big deal, and could become a monthly thing for the classy cactus!
