It's Finally Friday!

I cannot believe how long this week has seemed! I'm looking foward to the weekend and some downtime! It's supposed to be nice and I think I'll do something with my boys since I have been spending way too much time on the computer or doing other stuff lately. I scrapped all last weekend and I'm going again in a couple of weeks so I'm gonna take some time and just hang with them. It's almost baseball and soccer season so we need to get baseball pants, and socks and soccer shorts and shin guards and cleats for both, cha ching!

I have also done not one stitch of Easter shopping and it's next weekend! ARG!!! I am usually done way before! I also missed a couple of bdays this month! I never do that! I tell you there is something so off with me! I think I'm going to have my blood drawn to see if it's a vitamin thing or what. I am tired, don't want to do anything, have gained a TON of weight and it's not like my eating habits have changed THAT much! I am also cold all the time! I cannot wait until the warm weather is here!

So here is another page I did this weekend. Torn cardboard is all the rage in the digi world and I decided I wanted to try it on my paper pages so I got a cardboard box and ripped it up. It does make for a bulky page but man I love the look!

Love those glitter letters from K&Co too! I think I used them on 3 pages this weekend! Gotta thank my good pal Rachael for bringing them! LOL! I hand stitched on this one too, now I remember why I love my sewing machine so much!

Welp, that's it for me. Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

I Paper Scrapped

I went to a scrapping sleepover and did 11 pages. We had a great time too. There were 8 of us in total and there were a lot of laughs, good food, Chocolate Raspberry Martini's and of course scrapping! I was happiest with this page I think:

I love these papers! I think they are by Dream Street? The photo is of my MIL and FIL on their trip cross country. I am not sure where this one is exactly but they spent from June till Sept on the road last year, most of it in Alaska. They took some gorgeous shots! I don't have many photos of the two of them together because my MIL hates having her photo taken as much as I do so I love this one!
I am still in my funk, not sure what is wrong with me, I'm so tired all the time, have had a migraine for almost a week now too! I'm thinking it's stress but maybe it's the weather? I have no clue! I hope I can snap out of it soon tho because I hate it! So that's all I've got again! I hope that you all have a fantastic Tuesday! SMILE!

Blah Blah Blah

I've really not got anything to post about which is why I haven't posted in almost a week!
My friend Rachael has some new Chick Click templates available at TDC. That's about it for my world news. I am going to a scrapping sleepover on Sat/Sun and hope to have something to show for it when I get home. I have not been feeling great and am a little off in my mood so I'm not my chatty self! Hope you'll come back when I'm back to normal!
Have a great Day!

My Pup and a Peek!

Bear was sitting so pretty on the office rug that I had to take a photo of her. She's 15 years old and declining fast so I'm trying to take as many good photos of her as I can before we lose her. She has been a wonderful dog the last 15 years! If you don't know, she's 100% purebred PitBull. And she would change your outlook on pitbulls forever if you met her. She loves everyone and doesn't have a mean bone in her body. She's the worst watch dog ever! I'm sure if someone came into the house she'd say "come on in, take what you want and take me with you when you go!" She actually tried to get into a lawn guy's truck before when he told her "come on bear"! LOL!
And since I was taking pics of Bear I figured I'd give you a peek at the floors. I really wanted to do the "big reveal" when the stairs are done too but since you all asked so nicely! ;) This is my office and my most used room in the house besides my scraproom! ;)

Oh and thanks so much for the birthday wishes all!

Have a great day!

Birthday Fun

Last year when I turned 40 a bunch of my close friends came to town to help me celebrate and we went to a weekend long crop on Cape Cod. This year my friend Wendy came up from FL to help me celebrate! We had a lot of fun, we did some digi scrapping, lots of shopping and some beading! Here are a few photos from the weekend:
Me and Wendy:

Blowing out my candle:
There are several more fun photos but I want to save them until they are scrapped! TFL

Have a great Monday!

No Pictures Yet

I know what kind of scrapbooker am I? LOL! A perfectionist one! I want to take the photos when it's complete. The stairs will not be done until the weather gets better. Honestly the floors look gorgeous! Take my word for it! ;) They are a bit hard to get used to though. My wonderful husband is a freak! You literally cannot step off the rug at the front door with a shoe on, you can't drop a thing on the floor and GOD forbid if the boys drop a toy or laydown and wrestle with jeans on. I have no idea what I was thinking when I said I wanted hardwood! He's all about keeping them prestine and not living. I understand how hard he worked on them and all but come on, this is real life, the floors are going to get a little beat up ya know? Bad thinking on my part. I already put the first dent in them when we were moving my desk back in place. One of the adapter plugs fell off the desk and dented the floor! Not a happy moment.
So that pretty much sums up my weekend. Hope you all have a terrific Monday!

WOOHOO! Floors are Done!

My floors are done! All that's left is the baseboard tomorrow and I get my house back! They look fabulous! My hunny did an awesome job! I'm so so excited to see everything all back in place and see it really finished! So so nice. I worked from home today due to ANOTHER snow storm! It was a bit noisy here but it was fun to be able to see the work get close to done and then the last piece go in! Granted my house is still a huge sawdust/dust pit but it's going to be so flipping awesome when it's done! Next step the stairs! Yeah, my honeydew list is a mile long! I really am spoiled! :)
Tonight, I'm scrapping! Hope you all have a great weekend!
