Things I am totally lovin’

Yep, it has totally been a while since I blogged! I have been a busy bee with summer starting and the kids being out of school. Lots of pool time, smores, grillin' out, friends and other stuff! I just wanted to share them and hope you would share some of your favs also!

  1. $1 diet cokes from McDonalds. Yep on sale until Labor Day!!! I love it when they do that!
  2. Dane Cook on Sundays on Comedy Central. Any form of him on the weekend just makes me smile!
  3. Weekend smores. 'Nough said.
  4. Don't laugh… triathlon training. The race is slated for Aug. 2nd, so wish me luck. I love having athletic goals.
  5. My online grad class. ROCKS!!!
  6. My cozy front porch nook. I have a super soft chair, a citronella candle and am surrounded by flowers.
  7. The Bachelorette. I am watching it right now.
  8. True Blood, the first series on DVD. Thank You Movie Gallery. Don't think me weird. Thanks Shana!
  9. Old Navy Flip Flops in every color of the rainbow. I picked them up for a $1 a piece a couple of weeks ago. They hold up super nice too.
  10. ANYTHING by JR Ward. She is now my all time fav author. Right now I am totally lovin' the "Insider's Guide".

Ridden Hard and Put Up Wet

Haven't we all heard this saying? Or is it just the nurses out there? But, I gotta tell you that is how I feel. This semester has been draining, almost overwhelming at times and has in it's own way, worn me OUT. For now, I can graze peacefully at home allowing home "work" and not homework to come to the forefront again. It is pretty bad when your afternoon jog consists of brainstorming how you are going to write the last page of your thesis where you thank everyone that has helped you along the way.... Thoughts like, "thanks to my hubby who always 'leaves the light on for me' when I come home late from some school related thingy. And other thoughts like... ooohhhh you will just have to read it for yourself when I am done! LOL.

Now, for all you Paper Pixie fans out there... stay tuned to the shop for more items are on the way.... i never lie about that!! I also plan to do some more scrapping this summer for the kids and get my layouts out there. It has been a while since I was published and I like that kids seeing their faces on layouts in print... I ran into some of those old issues today while I was cleaning.

Wish us luck as we redecorate Lily's room this weekend. My fingers are a mess from stripping border paper off her wall... NEVER AGAIN!!

I hope all is well with everyone out there and so sorry I haven't blogged in so long!

What is coming to our house!

Lily Mae has totally outgrown her bedroom set and it is time for a bedroom overhaul! We decided it was time for a big girl bedroom set and this is what is coming! It is so pretty with a white Mother of Pearl finish... hopefully she will take care of it...

Spring Break is officially over...

Yep, this week totally flew by. My spring break is officially over in the morning, but tonight, ah... tonight I am relishing in a little snacky, diet coke from Mickey D.'s and a little "Wedding Crashers" just before I hit the sack. What a feel good movie. Pretty bad when I can lip sync the entire movie.

Anyhoo, I am still trying to keep up this marathon training amidst full time school, work and etsy... oh and yeah.... A FAMILY. Why must I thrive on chaos? I think most of us, just only dream of stopping and smelling the roses and a few of us ever really do.

Speaking of etsy, here are a few more little goodies I added that are super cute. I can't wait to use them on my own pages. Yeah, yeah, yeah... i keep saying that... "my own pages". Since I last blogged, I was scheduled to go on my yearly retreat to scrap. I was totally organized and ready to go... more organized than ever. Then, BAM. I woke up totally sick. I literally had to call my neighbor to come over and take Lukey to preschool and then take me to see the Nurse Practitioner down the street. I had strep and bilateral ear infections. What? I was soooo sick i had to miss the retreat. But, I totally didn't care, as I was so ill, I was in bed for 4 solid days. It took me down.

I am all better now.

Here are the photos of the goodies in the shop. All colors coordinate perfectly with each other if they say "roygbiv" "earthy" "funky" "primary" etc.
These Happy Words would be totally cute, mounted on pieces of chipboard, adhered to your pages or projects with 3D dimensional adhesive. That is what I plan to do with them. Maybe even make them shiney with mod podge or crystal effects glaze. Hmmmm....

These little gems are the spirographs I have had in the shop, but I made a boo boo in printing them and made them mini as well. They turned out super cute, and thought they complemented the originals perfectly. Check out this listing, as it gives a cute example from Kristina on how to use them.
