Quick Trick For Floppy Shoes...

With The Wedding comes trying to coordinate outfits for 8 kiddos...
That means earlier this month we were on the hunt for black shoes! The big issue is that our children have long narrow feet – good luck finding shoes for them!

Here is a trick we use for Hudson's shoes which flop, flop, flop on his feet!
It's a trick I learned as a runner called the Butterfly Tie.  Basically, lace up the shoes like normal, but instead of criss-crossing on the last lace holes, go straight from the second hole to the first.  Then criss-cross the laces in the loop this creates. 
Can you see it in the above picture? 
 Tighten and cinch the laces as needed and then tie as normal.  No more flopping!!! 
 It will work on any lace-up shoe!
Okie dokie...just thought I'd share!

The Final Countdown...

The Last Week is Finally Here!!!
Change the number 13 to 3, and you get the idea of how close we are to Brandon and Lisa's Wedding!

So much dreaming, planning, and preparing has gone on these last few months, and the day is almost here:
My part has been pretty small, but I do have a couple of little details to coordinate with the Rehearsal Dinner! Like putting together these fun activity books to help keep some kiddos occupied while the adults do their boring stuff!

Chelsea over at Lovely Indeed created an easy to download template for these!
Just thought I'd pop in and say, "Hi!"
It's been a busy month...
Now we're off to get some purchases, fittings, arrangements know...The Details!!!
{Stay posted...we've had some home projects underway, as well as a Father's Day Gift!  Oh, and a post about why I don't make such a good friend has been rattling around in my head!}
Thanks for stopping by!  Be Refreshed!
