a busy october


i have missed being here.
i've missed blogging.
 i've missed reading and commenting....but i'm hoping to be back!

it was a very busy october for the prep family, starting with birthdays!



and my sweet magnolia

then there was halloween
(she was goldilocks)

in between all of the parties, i have taken on a new business
at work that's keeping me on my toes.

and drumroll please (the BIG news i promised....)

mr prep and i are opening our first retail store!!
sorry to those of you who thought i could be prego! ha!

it's an office supply and stationery store right in the
midst of our downtown's main street and the dream of mr prep.

(it actually looks a lot different now since we're ready to open)

i'm in charge of stationery, cards and invitations so this is super fun for me!
do you have suggestions or ideas for me?
we have a couple vendors set up,
but i'd love more ideas....especially for the holidays!

thanks for all your love and support out there.
 i hope to be here more often again!
