Making up for lost time

Well since I was such a bad blogger this month I figure I will post twice today LOL. Here is the other project that I completed this month. I created a mini book for my Best Friend Stephanie's 30th birthday. It had pages for people to send her birthday wishes. The front says Sweet 3oth because she said she wanted a sweet 30th since she did not have a sweet 16. I think maybe she has been watching too much MTV LOL.

Me and Steph

How embarassing!

Three Weeks!!! That's how long I have neglected my poor blog. Bad blogger, bad bad blogger! So Sorry. June just exploded on me I guess. Well here we are at July (almost) and hopefully things will slow down. I only have 2 more weeks on probation at work. Yay! Can you believe I have been back to work for 6 months already? I guess I can't complain about my job because the time has really flown by.

So I guess I have lots to share since I have been so lax with the updates. Lets see first off, Jeff and I are gonna be taking a mini- vacation in September to celebrate our 9th anniversary. We are headed to Los Angeles to see a Nascar race ( yes I like Nascar), then to Disney for the day with NO KIDS! Jeff just thinks thats weird but I have always wanted to go with just him and I. Not like my kids have never been. We will probably take them again around Christmas time. Ok ok back to the trip. Then Jeff and I will be headed to Vegas for 3 days. We will actually be in Vegas on our anniversary. This will be our 3 rd anniversary trip to Vegas. The first time we went was for our 1 year anniversary and I was pregnant with Jeffrey. NOT the way to go to Vegas. LOL. So anyways I am really excited to go on vacation. It's not what I thought we would be doing this year but I am still super excited.

On to some scrappy news. I am happy to announce that I have made the Crop Addict Creative Team! I am so excited to be joining such a wonderful site. Not to mention that I am on the creative team with another scrapper that was on the first DT I was ever on. So a quick shout out to Marti! Glad to be working with you again! So come visit me at

I have one new LO that I have not posted here yet. Did this for a contest over at CMK. You had to scrap your weakness. LOL. I have a couple other projects and photos that I want to share but I don't have them uploaded yet. So maybe later this week. If you managed to get thru all this, YOU ROCK! Thanks for visiting, and happy Monday!

Summer's Here

Well the kids are all done with school. It is weird not being home with them this summer. I guess it is just something we will have have to get used to. We have our first playoff game tonight. So looking forward to that. Friday night I got to hang out with my Buddy KP. We had a nice dinner with a fruity drink and then we went shopping. We hit up our local scrapbook store. I only got a couple things because I didn't see what I was looking for. But KP on the other hand found lots of pretty stuff. As we were parting ways Friday night I told her that I wanted to see some LO's done with her new scrap goodies. Well she delivered and then some. Check her out here
Now I am wishing I got some of the papers that she did this weekend.

We stayed close to home this weekend. Saturday we went to Scott and Lydia's for Scott's birthday. We had a great time but I think Jamie had the best time. Here are the girls, they had fun playing with each other.

And last but not least I got a LO done this weekend. I did this for a challenge over at

This is Jeff and Jamie on the last day of preschool

Gymboree Rocks

So yesterday I got the email for the peel a prize or whatever they call it at Gymboree. They gave me 20% off. Well I know that they give out the peels at the store too. So yesterday I HAD to go to the mall for something else. I stopped by Gymboree when I was done at Macy's. The clerk handed me a peel a prize card and I got a 50% off coupon. I was so excited I think I actually jumped up and down a couple of times. I am a Dork I know. So I frantically shopped for more items. I only had about 10 minutes to be in and out of the store. If you shop there you know 10 minutes just is not enough time. I still managed to spend $60+ after my discount. It really made my day. Sad really, but I do love me some shopping :)

Here are just a few of the things I got yesterday

I almost had a LO started last night but Steph called to go walking. I figured I needed to get some walking in. Haven't been very good about the exercise recently. So by the time we got home from our walk So You Think You Can Dance was on. Scrapping will have to wait LOL.

Puzzled Out

So last weekend we went to the b-day for Jeff's uncle. The kids ended up staying the night at their house. Of course they went to bed WAY past their bedtime. The next evening Jamie was home working on a puzzle after dinner. Jeff and I were in the office checking out possible vacation destinations when I heard this whistling sound. I asked him if it was the dog maybe whining and he said no. SO I get up and leave the office and this is what I find

I think the girl was a little tired don't you? LOL

Floor Seats Baby!

Yep that is where Steph, Katie and I will be on October 10th. On the floor for the New Kids Concert. Yes I am going shut your mouth! LOL. Well tonight Stepha and I are going to go see Phantom of the Opera. I LOVE this broadway show. It is one of my favorites. My butt is going to be super tired at work tomorrow but it is SSooooooooo worth it. Jeffrey only has 2 more days left of school. Should be interesting to see how Jeff handles his first summer break by himself while I am working LOL. Over the weekend we went to a surprise party for Jeff's Uncle who turned 52. I have a horrible time making masculine cards but this is what I came up with

And this is my address book that I recently altered. It is a sarabinder covered with mostly prima.

Thats all I have on the scrappy front for the time being. Two more hours and I am outta here!
