Tired Friday

It's Friday and Memorial Weekend has started!

I'm sitting on the couch, ready to fall asleep watching a movie with the hubby. Actually the movie is watching us! LOL Our dog seems to think that we want to play fetch with her squeaky toy duck that she keeps bringing to me after I throw it, but doesn't want to let it go! What a stinker!

Well, today I scrapped a page. I haven't done that in a LOOOONG time! It felt good and besides, I 'have' to now b/c there was an extra kit that was donated to us. I'm having fun with it though and my creative juices are flowing. Can't wait to post this one up after the 1st!

Well, gonna get back to catching up on my emails and switching over my jewelry in my Etsy shop into a different Etsy shop. I decided to seperate the my two shop will be scrapbooking and the other will be jewelry. It's gonna be a long process but worth it (I think). I'll post when it's officially up and running!

Good night.

The Friday Fill-In

It's that time of the week's FRIDAY!!! Woohoo!

1. Watermelon -- the best food to take on a picnic.
2. Summer is a creeping...quick, looking for sanity hat!
3. Pink, yellow, silver, black and brown flip flops are what I have. Need to get more!
4. To love someone is easy, to be loved is a gift.
5. It's been a while since I have been on a long hike.
6. When I crave food, it's usually something that is VERY bad for me! hahaha
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to watching a movie with the hubby, tomorrow my plans include laundry and cleaning house while Neal is at work and Sunday, I want to just go out and do something (preferably beachy)!

Have a safe and fun Memorial Day Weekend!

Travel the world in a week

Sunday my parents came over and we had a good time on the boat out on one of the sandbars near the house. It was a beautiful day out! I can't wait to go out again this weekend.

Monday Morgan had something going on in her class. It was "Mexico" day. Every day this week her class is 'visiting' a country and learning about the culture and even trying the food. They get to dress up if they want and can. Her sister had a senorita costume from Halloween so we thought it would be a great outfit to wear for this occasion in class. My mom did her bun. Here is how she went to school...

And this was my attempt to just get a picture of the 2 girls and stinker Colton had to jump right in. What a cutie! Love this shot of the 3 of them!

Yesterday was Australia Day, today is France, Thursday is Holland, and Friday is Albania. Not sure how she is gonna dress for the rest of the week. We had a great outfit for France but her teacher said that they couldn't bring props so there went Mo's french poodle in a handbag or a beret. :(

Ah...Silence thru the night!

WHAT? Did I actually sleep the entire night without getting woken up by a goober-eyed, runny nosed, yelling MAMA across the house 2 year old that answers to the name of Colton?!


Well, he did wake up goober-eyed and runny nosed and he did yell MAMA really load from his room but I went to bed around 11:30pm and woke up at 6am this morning without any interuptions last night! BUT...on another note...I will NOT sit in the ER today for hours w/ him just to be told that he has conjunctivities and possibly an ear infection (I'm leaning more towards the pink eye). EW! That will be my chore for the day w/ him not touching his eyes. I know NOT to tell him NOT to touch his eyes though b/c what happens when you tell a kid NOT to do something...yep...they go and do it! :/

My parents are coming sometime this morning and we are gonna take them on a little cruise out on the boat. I'm still gonna do it with Colton. Maybe the salt water will help the eyes a little (I'll just keep telling myself that). No fever and he's watching Tigger and Pooh right now so the eyes aren't bothering him (yeah...we actually aren't watching Nemo!) heehee


Yesterday was the first day I was able to eat actual meals and not feel sick since Wednesday. Woohoo! Yesterday was also a day we did NOTHING! I saw that happily too because we've been busy every weekend doing something and today we had nothing...ahhh! heehee

I made 2 pieces of jewelry, cleaned the kitchen, went to the store w/ the family and vegged when I could. Here are my latest pieces I have added in my Etsy store:

Blue Ice Adjustable Cluster Ring - $15.00

Australian Jasper Adjustable Cluster Ring - $15.00

You can see them and other jewelry pieces just by clicking on the rings title. Have a good Sunday!

Well today is Friday, woo-hoo for the weekend! Here are my Friday Fill-ins:

1. Colton never fails to make me smile.
2. I'm looking forward to getting rid of whatever this 'bug' is that I have for the past 2 days!
3. Dory and Marlin (Finding Nemo) trying to escape from Bruce is what I'm listening to right now.
4. Potato salad must have no BIG pieces of onion in it!
5. Immodium-AD was the best thing I ate today. LOL sorry, TMI!
6. Today was hopeful, but it seems the bug still is lingering.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to eating, tomorrow my plans include laundry and Sunday, I want to take my parents out on the boat when they arrive!

Collaging it!

I haven't posted in a while. So much going on and enjoying May! It's HOT and it's boating weather! Woohoo!

We've been busy with Morgan's swimming practices and just the usual day-to-day things (chores). I have a jewelry show coming up next week so I'm scrambling to get all my things together and find some down time to lay out all the 'to-do' creations so I can have it all during next Thursday. It's slowly coming along, but I can't create with an active 2 year old wanting to grab everything and help me. PLUS my 10 month pug wants in on the action. Anything she can get her mouth becomes hers...can't let that happen!

I just played around with some photos of mine and made a collage of the latest item I just posted in my Etsy shop.
Now that I know how to make these collages I will have to make more with the pieces I will be listing!
Well, I'm pooped. Today has been a long day and I need a shower!

Friday, May 7, 2010

Today is Friday!

1. Salsa and salty nachoes!
2. A hot dog for me!? and you've even got mustard.
3. By the time I get home tonite I'll be ready for a cold shower.
4. The amount I save at the register is what I look forward to most when grocery shopping.
5. And I was dreaming that I'd get the house totally clean today! LOL
6. Being a there anything else better?!
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to watching Avatar, tomorrow my plans include the Cotee River Seafood fest and dinner w/ friends for a bday dinner and Sunday, I want to go out on the boat!

Beach snap-shots

Today Neal had to work so I decided to take the kids to a local beach. I got ready this morning by putting a bag together and getting a cooler all set. I already knew we wouldn't be there long, figured we could go for an hour or two and then come home for lunch. The kids were so excited! The best part about this beach, it's about 5-10 minutes away and it also has a playground!

I wanted to get pictures of the kids but knew I had to do it before they got all sandy and wet so I started snapping. I forgot that I had my camera set to sepia at first. But here are the shots I got and I got to play with the coloring too!

I love this one because they are all in the picture and I got a pretty shot of the Gulf!

Colton wasn't in the photo taking mood so he left for the next few and went straight for the playground! LOL Here is a cute snapshot of my girls....I {heart} them!

And I was able to get one of Morgan in color. She's getting so big :(

Here is where Colton was...he loved the playground. Not so much the beach though. He sat down in the sand and water and wasn't going to have it today. It was all playground. I can't wait till the day I go to the beach and bring a chair to sit and watch them ALL one spot!

Here he is on one of the slides. I just love this picture b/c he's asking for me! heehee

And here is a picture of Sydney and Colton on the twisty slide. Colt loves sliding with his sister.

And after about an hour Colton was ready to come home. There was a little nature trail that Sydney 'had' to go on so she dragged us all...and it was nice. It was all made of wood decking and it led us to the other side of the key overlooking the Gulf. Lots of boats out today...wish we were able to go out. Very hot and humid...perfect boating weather. Anywho...we came home and took our showers and ate lunch. A very laid back day. Waiting for Neal to get home. Can't wait till tonite...we are going out to dinner with some friends. I hear SANGRIA calling me! LOL
