My Little 2nd Grader

Ok well he isn't so little anymore. Jeffrey started 2nd Grade yesterday. I think he was more excited than he was letting on. The poor kid got a little sun burned the day before. He was swimming all afternoon and Jeff didn't reapply sunscreen to Jeffrey after he had been in the pool for awhile (Jeff aka Dad, Jeffrey aka Son) Just in case there was any confusion going on LOL. So anyways his eyes were a little puffy. Oh well I guess I should be happy that I got a pic of him at all. I was already on my way to work by the time the bus came.

I also was able to get some scrappy time in over the weekend. Tina over at CMK had challenged us to scrap a transparency. I had never done that and knew I had some around my scrap room waiting to be used. So here is what I came up with. Everything is Pink Paislee Spring Fling Line.

And I finally dug into my Pink Paislee Pop Fashion. I have been afraid to use it because I didn't want to ruin it. I love this line so much I might just hoard it LOL. But I did manage to make a LO. This is of me and Steph at my 30th Bday that she threw me. A surprise Martini Party

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you are all having a great week.

The Never-ending Game!

Seriously! Ok so I posted on Tuesday about how I was taking my son to go see a ballgame. Yea well the game lasted 14 innings! YIKES! I told him when it hit the top of the 12th that we had to go home. It was after 10pm already and we live about 45 minutes from the ballpark. Mommy had to work the next day. Let me tell you my butt was D-R-A-G-G-I-N-G all day yesterday. It was so worth it though. My son had a great time hanging out with mom. He thanked me as he went to bed for a fun night. We had awesome seats too. I had received free tickets for a fundraiser that I had organized for my sorority. They were good for ANY seat in the house. We could have sat right behind home plate but Jeffrey wanted to be on the side. Always trying to find ways to catch a fly ball LOL. So we ended up 5 rows up from first base. Not bad for FREE seats LOL. Here is a pic of the two of us. Sorry it's blurry. It came off my phone.

I see I have been tagged too. SO I will do that post later. Thanks Marti!!

I can't concentrate right now

I am tired, but that is my fault for staying up too late. I now have a headache. I feel like it is from a combo of things, tired eyes, allergies and maybe lack of caffeine. Employers really should let you take naps during work. You would think since I work for a Learning hospital that they would be forward thinkers in that respect. But alas no nappies for me. LOL. Sorry no exciting pics to share today. I am taking Jeffrey to see the Rivercats tonight when I get off work. For those who don't live near me they are the Minor League team affiliated with the Oakland A's. You all know how obsessed my son is with baseball. He is literally walking baseball encyclopedia right now. So tonight should be good times LOL. It's one last Mommy and Jeffrey day before he starts school next week. Well feels like the 3 advil I took are kicking in. Maybe it's time to get back to work! TTYL!

The New and Improved Cave!

This is what I did all weekend. And I managed to get in a few LO's.


Ok Well the top was not usually covered with that much crap! LOL. I had already started moving stuff when I took this pic. I had one more cabinet under the counter like the one on the right. Plus a Scrap Armoire and a book shelf with MORE Crap. I mean Scrap goodies. LOL.

This was to the left of my scrap desk

And now for the AFTER:

SO far this is working out soo much better. Can you tell? LOL. It really made me want to scrap. Which I did, but I can't share with you quite yet. Anyways Thanks for Looking! Have a great week everyone!

Just a Quick post

I wouldn't want to scare you off by me over posting LOL. Not much going on here. It's pretty hot here in Cali right now. Supposed to be 104 today. Yuck! Hoping to confirm some type of vacation plans tonight with Jeff. We have kinda gone back and forth on a trip for our Anniversary that is coming up. Right now I just want to go somewhere not sure that I care where it is exactly LOL. We used to vacation where and whenever we wanted. Not so much anymore. Thanks California Real Estate Market!! You are the reason I am back at work! But whatever I will save that rant for another day. I know I am spoiled. I hear all the time from my MIL that she never got to vacation like Jeff and I do when she was my age. Well then I guess I am lucky that you raised him right so that he can take me on nice vacations. Ok enough of the spoiled Brat talk. LOL. Here is a little card I made last week. TFL. Hope you all have a nice weekend.

Party Pics!

Well I finally downlaoded the pics from the Anniversary party from last weekend. I realized I didn't get very many of Jamie. Oh well. I think Kristin had to have gotten some. I am also getting really annoyed with my little pocket Camera. I have only had the thing for 6 months and the pictures seem to be getting grainier. Grr!!! I guess I am gonna have to go back to using my bigger camera. At least I know my pics will be clear. Hmm that or maybe it's time to ask Santa for a Rebel! Ya Right! I don't think Santa (aka Jeff) is going to buy me one since he just bought my little one for me LAST Christmas. A girl can dream!

Anyways here are a couple pics from the party

The Cake my friend Christine made. It was a beach themed party :)

Me and My Two Jeffs. Sounds like a sitcom to me LOL.

Well that's all folks. Hope you are having a great day!

Whew! What a Weekend

Ok so as some of you know we gave my In Laws a 40th Anniversary party last Saturday. I think we had almost 80 people there. The weather was PERFECT! I could not have asked for better weather in August. The food was great and the cake was to die for! Hopefully later this week I can show you some pics from the party. Even though it was a great party I am glad its over! I am so tired. Not to mention I kinda over did everything physically and my back was screaming at me all weekend. I guess that's the price you pay for family. I had bought one of those cheap guest books for the party and knew I wanted to cover the front. I was afraid I was gonna run out of time to do anything to it. But I was able to squeeze some scrappy time in Saturday morning. Here is the Guest book all done

Well that is about it for now. I hope you are all having a great week!

It's Wednesday already?

So I have been hard at work reading Breaking Dawn! I am in love. I cannot read it fast enough! That or I just don't have enough time in the day to read as much as I would like. That's life I guess.

So Today my parents are celebrating their 31st wedding anniversary. In case any of you remember I just turned 30 a few months back? Yea I was a honeymoon conception LOL. I am very proud of my parents for being married this long. There have been plenty of times where that could have changed. But they stuck it out and now I think they are happier than they have been in a long time. You always hear about the bad marriages but it's nice having those good ones surround you! My IL's will be celebrating 40 years on Sunday as well as Jeff's Grandparents would have been celebrating 60 years this Sunday too. I hope it is not to hard on his Grandma this year. It will be her first anniversary without Alex. I am sure we will all be thinking about him this weekend. I know it's not forever or really any long length of time but Jeff and I will be celebrating our 9th Anniversary this year. I think that is pretty damn good considering I was married at 21. Ok so enough of the anniversary talk.

I will leave you with a LO that I got done over the weekend. My fingers took a beating on this one but that's ok because it was worth it to me. It's mostly Fancy Pants stuff. I cut the flower out and glittered it. As well as the button in the center of the flower. It's kinda hard to tell in this pic. A little back story to the title too. This pic is from our camping trip over the 4th of July. Jamie loved going to the beach but not to swim. She sat on shore and made mud pies all weekend. She kept telling me "MOM I am making Mushy Gushy!" Don't ask me where she came up with that! LOL Her bathing suit has mud sealed into it now. The thing was brand new! Oh well, that's what I get for taking a nice new suit camping LOL

i hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week!

We (Jeff, His Sis Melissa and I) Are throwing them an anniversary Party on Saturday. They will be celebrating 40 years! How awesome is that? SO this week I will be busy getting last minute details done before the party. Would you believe that I actually got in a ton of scrappy time this weekend? Well maybe not a ton but much more than usually. Here are a couple things I managed to create this weekend. Have a great week everyone
