Frogs to Monkeys

I am sure you are thinking "What is she talking about?" LOL. Well yesterday was Jamie's promotion at preschool from the Funny Frogs to the Monkeys. LOL Here are a couple pics from her promotion. Next year she will get the little graduation hat. Her and her BFF have the same outfit for the last day of school. They had the same outfit for the first day too. Steph and I can't help it, we love dressing them the same. Funny thing is people mistake them all the time as twins when they are complete opposites when it comes to looks. Ashley is very fair and long legged. Jamie is dark and a little more petite. LOL

Have a great weekend everyone. I need to go figure out teacher gift's this weekend. Got any easy ideas for me??

20 years! That is how long I have been a fan of Madonna. My memory is so bad it could be longer. But I do remember Stephanie and I doing dances in the backyard to Madonna songs in the 4th Grade LOL. Ahh the Good Ol' Days. Well Since Steph and I are such huge fans we are going to go see the one and only on November 1st! YAY! This is not the first time. We paid a broker for tickets about 5 years or so ago. When ever she had her LAST tour. You know the one where she said it was her LAST! Yea Right. I don't know why musicians say that. They ALWAYS come back to do another. Don't get me wrong I LOVE that she is coming back to do another. I love the new CD.

Well on to scrappy business. I am slowly getting my Mojo back. I have been so busy that my desire to scrap had been missing. Having the long weekend last week helped. I came home last night and made another LO with my new Crate Paper goodness. I did this line from the Crate Paper Static line

Happy Wednesday!

The start of a new week

So its back to work Tuesday. Had a nice slow 3-day weekend. The weather was kinda cool this weekend so no swimming by the pool. We went out to dinner on Friday night when I got home from work. The rest of the weekend we just hung around home. I got to get some scrapping in which was great. I haven't made nearly enough time for that recently between baseball, work and the birthdays. I got a couple new Martha Stewart punches on Friday. I got the butterfly and the scalloped lacey looking one. I love them. Used them both this weekend. I entered CMK'S Last Scrapper Standing contest. We had to lift from one of the DT members. That was a hard one because the talent over there is phenomenal! Anyways here is the LO I did

and here is the card I made using Pink Paislee and my new MS Scalloped punch

Well thats all I have for now. Hope you all have a great week!

Strike 3 YOU'RE OUT!!

I love hearing that! Especially when it is MY boy doing the pitching. This is the first year that Jeffrey's team has had live pitching. We have won every game where Jeffrey has been the starting Pitcher. I am a proud Mom, can you tell? Here are a couple pics of my little baseball stud pitching

I have gotten a couple LO's done recently too! Only have 1 pics so far. I just got some of the new Crate Paper and I just had to play with it. This is from the Katlin line.

Hope you are all having a great week. We have another ball game tonight so here's to winning :)

Where to Start?

Geez a lot has happened since my last post. I guess first off I would say that the March for Babies that I did was so fun. Had a great time doing something like that with my mom, sister and Best Friend. It was such a great cause and we are gonna do it again next year.

Second: Well I finally turned 30!! I had expected to go out to Morton's for dinner with Jeff, me and Steph and Jason. Well that was all a farce! Steph had planned a surprise party for me. All my favorite girlfriends were there and there were plenty of Martini's to go around. I severely paid for it the next day but it was so worth it. I will never forget that night for as long as I live. Here are some pics from my party.

Me and My Best Friend Steph

Me and some of my Favorite girls ever!

My Ginormous Martini

Ali and KP

Mar, Carol and my Mom

My Sis and Me

And my awesome B-day cake!

And nothing better than reliving my youth at 30! Could Madonna and the New Kids on the Block not come back at a more perfect time? Yes I am a fan of both and have been forever. I can tell the concert tickets are gonna get costly this year. I have not been so giddy over something so stupid in so long! LOL Do you think I am too old to plaster their posters all over my room again? Hmm, not sure Jeff would appreciate that so much. Maybe I need to turn JJ on to them so we can plaster the posters in her room instead of the Disney Princesses LOL. Ya Right!

SO here is to Hangin' Tough! Hahaha!
