it's happened!

yesterday, I had to wear shoes. Not just any shoes, but boots... with leggings. It really did hurt my heart to have to put them on! Today is another day that they are needed. This morning, I even had to turn the heater on! Can you see my terribly sad face.... summer is over and winter is right around the corner. Almost time to pack up the flip flops and strappy sandals.

our photo shoot turned out great on Saturday. You know why, because I now have pictures of all of us together. I didn't have to plan them, or take them, or remember to hide the remote. I don't care if we don't look perfect, if I'm having a bad hair day, or if it's obvious I'm not in my 30's anymore! I don't care about all of that... the most important thing is that I have them! Forever! I can't wait to see them all!
On a side note, 5 years ago, why even 2 years ago, I would have picked apart a dozen things with these pictures... found many things I didn't like and rejected most of them... now I'm just thrilled to have them. Isn't it amazing how not only do we change, but our priorities as well.

Here's another layout for Kristen's album. I really like the sweetness of this one. She is going to have a nice album full of great memories when it's all finished. The little giraffe is too stinking cute!!

Wishing you all a fabulous day full of inspiration! :)

do you??

read the blogs when you go hopping, or just look at the pretty pictures?

I wonder because I have found that the more blogs I look at, the less I read them.. which is really sad, some of them are soooo funny and can make you laugh out loud.  I'm trying to read them more.  You can learn so much by reading ya know!

It's a cool and windy day in Oklahoma.  I hear we are getting rain this weekend, 5 inches predicted.  I don't believe it!  We need to get the pool closed up, but my pool boys assistant is gone to the city for the weekend.. I have a feeling I'm going to be out there tugging and pulling on a tarp.  I lay odds that there is going to be some whining going on too!

Here's another layout of sweet BW.  Newborn pics are just so very precious.

I did a bit of misting here, edge punching, paper layering, and washi tape!  Love me some washi tape!

It is now time to get busy in the scraproom. I'm doing some re-vamping, some major purging, and hopefully there will be some creating going up in here today!

Have a fabulous weekend!

I want......

someone to come mow my back yard.
my laundry finished.
to be done entering these 50+ new oil wells into the system.
$150.00 to go spend at Victoria's Secret.
to not automatically hit the snooze button each morning.
for winter to not come.
to sing out loud and no one howl.
to have a retreat 4 times a year with my peeps.
to find a happy place in my scraproom.
oh. and.
world peace.

what do you want?

I really do want to blog more... can't believe it's been 2 months and I've had nothing to say! I'd like to tell you I've just been super busy, but truth is I'm really just coming home and sitting on my lazy butt either watching tv or reading. I've just been too lazy to get up and upload a picture to the computer, then sort, the crop, then upload to blogger.. yikes, just talking about it makes me tired.. and since I think I can't post without a picture... I just kept saying "there's always tomorrow!"

Here are a couple more layouts for the baby album. Doesn't he make you just want to squeeze and squeeze him!!

Ok, now I'm off to take my David out to eat... cause it's his birthday!
and he is special.
and I don't tell him enough!

. You know what I'm talking about!
