you were not forgotten. I tried blogging yesterday and earlier today but it was not accepting my post. :S
But here we are now. I made some changes in my blog to. Updated it a bit and took off the blinkies and some sidebar images because it makes for a long load if your not on high speed.
So what have I done since we last blogged? I have scrapped. :D
This is a kit by Sherri and the credits can be found in my gallery.
And this is a little bigger because I'm playing around with sizes to find one that I can post universally. Thanks for the understanding!
The cedits for this can also be found in my gallery.
Friday I ran into town after work and found a really nice winter jacket for myself for $30.00. I could hardly believe the price! Gotta love Ross! Then I got together with some ladies from our church. Yesterday I did 32 loads of laundry. Okay it wasn't really that many loads but it was feeling like it by the end of the day. In between loads I managed to get *most* of the house clean. I took a couple little breaks to dink on the computer and scrapbook.
Today... well, I should have gone to church but I just didn't feel like it. What I mean by that is that I have one of those sinus colds. I'm okay during the day when I'm blowing, but at night it manages to stuff up and drain all at the same time. You know that cold where it seems to get worse at night and you feel like you can't breath so you try sleeping upright on the couch. That's been me for the past three nights. Very broken sleep out on the couch. :(
And speaking of our couch... Ever since dear hubby and I got together seven years ago he has wanted a sectional couch. I kept saying no because we live in a smaller manufactured home, but we were out a week ago and found that they are making them now small scale so I finally gave in and said yes. With both our birthdays recently and our anniversary around the corner and Christmas on top of that, we bought one for all those occasions and had it delivered this week. And I can attest to how comfy it is. ;) Here's a pic of what dh picked out for our tv area.
The foot rest in the pic is actually to an overstuffed chair we have in the livingroom and didn't come with this sectional, in case you were wondering. :)
For some reason I feel like I could just go on and on with this post, but I won't. Kuddos to you if you stuck with me this long! I hope you all have a Super Sunday! Thanks for stopping by!
Is it really Wednesday already? Can it really be? Time sure flies when you are having fun!
I did a lo the other day of dd birthday. It's done with 'And Many More' kit by Karah.
Isn't she cute! See those lovely glasses she is wearing? Last week my dh dog chewed them up beyond repair. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! Yep! While she was sleeping the dog jumped onto the bed and over to the night stand where she snagged her glasses and proceeded to chomp them up like a raw hide treat. So Saturday we had to go in and order her some new specs in which we had to pay for since insurance would not cover. Did I mention we also bought the beloved dog a kennel for evening containment.
Last night I got scrappy and did a LO of our weekend trip to the pumpkin patch. Again I used a kit by Karah. Isn't her stuff COOL!
Guess what I'm doing this upcoming weekend... I'm birthday shopping for my son. I can hardly believe that he turns 13 this year. *sniffle* What do you buy a spoiled rotten 13 year old boy? ;) When asked the answer is always the same three things- baseball cards, psp/ps2 games, football jerseys. We've always held strong to no television in the bedroom until the teen years so he'll get a tv. What else? Hmmmmmm. Ideas?
And to end this evening, I wanted to share some more exciting news... Beth Hesselberg has offered me a spot on her creative team. I can hardly believe the amazing opportunities I've had this past few months. It's been such a wonderful and exciting experience to get to work with these designers.
The truth of the matter is that I tried something new. It didn't really work out for me though... so what did you miss? I've been a busy girl! I have the amazing opportunity to create for another designer too! Karah has some amazing fresh and funky designs and I love 'em! You can check them out at her site Blue Flombingo. I've played with a kit this morning but its not quite ready to share. Hopefully tomorrow!
This past week has been really nice. The weather has been dry the later part of the week. We were driving by the lake, as we do everyday on our way to school, when dd asked if she could snap a pic. She rolled down the window and took this as we were still in motion on the highway. Check out the low fog.
Friday I was supposed to get high speed internet and boy was I looking forward to it... but they no showed. Long story short, I got it this evening and boy or boy is it NICE! Yay!
Saturday morning we got up and did some chores around the house. Then we went to the pumpkin patch. I was SO much fun. They had the animals and the hayrides... the whole bit. Of course I took a billion pics too! LOL.
Welcome back to my blog and thanks for hopping with me! TTFN!
the week went by. I woke this morning to find it a week later than I thought it was. Where did the last week go? At least I woke to find it a payday which I didn't expect. :p Seriously I've been SO busy that this is just crazy.
So an update... I scrapped this with Sherri's new kit. It's really beautiful and full of fall colors. It is supposed to be released this week so keep an eye out for it.

No update on the ant farm. When we bought it the gal suggested we just go ant hunting rather than order them through the company to enhance the experience. Well we did but those ants were not into this gel stuff one bit. So we still have an ant farm waiting for some tennants. I shall order some this afternoon since I get off work a couple of hours early today.
I finished watching the second season of GA and it was so worth the purchase. Enough said. ;)
This week darling daughter is doing cheer camp and on Friday she will cheer at half-time at the high school football game. She looks forward to this every year. I have the camcorder charging for the game. :D
And... still struggling with the son. He's decided to tell me a few white lies this past week about school work. He knows better than to lie. <*sigh*> Did I mention he turns 13 in less than a month which I'm sure is contributing to some of these difficulties? <*sigh*>
Thanks for visiting. Hope you all have a really wonderful week.
