Niagara Falls & Simon Says you could win!!

We had a fabulous time in Niagara Falls. It was so much fun to get away and have some time with Maya and my Mom, sister and nieces! We were go go go for both days and I am feeling it now! I am exhausted and my body hurts from so much walking but it was so worth it I tell you. We saw the Falls, hung out in the Botanical Gardens, rode Maid of the Mist and visited Marineland. And when we weren't busy with all of that we watched the girls delight in all of the little things Niagara Falls had to offer!!

First up is our view of the Falls from our hotel room. We stayed on the 20th floor of Sheraton and it was fantastic!!

Next, here are a couple of shots from our ride on Maid of the Mist. First up is Maya & I and then there is a group shot of all of us. This was lots of fun but apparently I was the only one in the world who didn't know we were going to get SOAKED. Thank goodness for the ever fashionable blue trash bag raincoats they give you!!

And then here are a couple of shots from our second day there. Maya & I again and then my sister Amanda with her two girls and our Mom.

I apologize for this long post but I hope you are still with me. I want to give a shout out to Katie Cotton, the owner of Paper Makeup Stamps. First of all, everyone should know about these stamps because they are incredible. Their fairies are absolutely adorable!!

Anyway, I am so happy to say that I won the Dream Big set from their new release as part of a blog candy offering they were having. Then, as if that wasn't enough, Katie and I were emailing and I had asked about ordering the new Hope Awareness Fairy image and this incredibly generous woman has offered to send it to me for free. Why is this so fabulous?!?! Well, because this image will be absolutely perfect for cards for next year's Crop for the Cure (which I am very pleased to say that PMS is a proud sponsor of). So, from me to you Katie please accept my heartfelt thanks! You are awesome!! And to all of you - go and check out Paper Makeup Stamps. You won't regret it!! :)
