As the weekend is approaching I am seriously beginning to panic! I still have 3 gifts to get before we head back to Memphis for our family Christmas dash. I wish I had a helicopter it would make our weekend much more enjoyable. We have to drive to Collerville to be with Craigs dad for christmas and then off to Bartlett to spend the night with his mom and have breakfast and christmas with her. Then (Big SIGH of relief) off to Southaven and let the fun begin cuz we will finally get to be with my big wild and crazy family. Its my fave part and shhhh dont tell but its my hubs too! My cousin has a new sweet lil girl and I cant wait to get my hands on her. I always get so excited to be with my family - trust me its never a dull moment!

I was going to try to make some gifts for christmas this year but time was not on my side-unfortunately. So I have to go tonight and get something-i hate shopping last minute. I am one of those people who puts alot of thought into a gift and hates to just pick something up. This is how busy I am - I have 3 scrappy lo's completed and havent even had time to photograph them and get them loaded. I am so impatient that I never do that. Its my fave part of scrappin is loading them on the site and reading peoples feedback-it just fuels my fire. Thats why wherever I am a participatant(spelling??) I always make sure to give feedback(plus it counts for my good deed of the day-hehehe) I am always asking my kiddos what was your good deed of the day - well they dont even ask me anymore cuz they know what I will say-LOL! But if I get to do something else I make sure they know it! =)

Tonight I have soooo many errands to run and dang it -it's raining! OMgosh I just remembered I havent even gotten my Christmas photo cards made-lordy I hope Wally world has 1hr service. Crap I gotta get off here and go check! See what I mean-this life is crazy-but hey at least we arent bored!

Talk soon and photos to come!

2009 what a year

First of all let me warn you I am feeling a lil sappy this week-why I dont know??? Most of you wont find interest in this post but I have to do this while the memory is still in my head(my memory is slowing fading)

On a good note there are many things we accomplished this year, even in this recession we were still able to do these things and that is a compliment to me myself the family banker-LOL! Finally in my 40's I am doing better at saving $$$-about time! I am proud of the fact that we finally got to take our kiddos to the beach and had a blast, we also were able to take them to a UT football game (dad's secret desire) and we also went to the Chattanooga Choo Choo train for a Christmas ride(my secret desire). They both played basketball and baseball this year. Tucker played football for his second year and Bo opted to sit out this year (still trying to figure out why cuz he is a natural at this game). I for the first time in my life of 42 years kept a new years resolution and lost 32lbs (was wishing for more but not giving up yet). I have scrapped over a 100 pages this year - thanks to the 52sketches52weeks website. Which also opened up a whole new world for me as far as scrapping. I have been a guest designer and won numerous prizes thanks to the world of online scrapping. I am still going strong and throughly enjoy scrapping the life of my lil family-not stopping now! My oldest son Bo started the 7th grade this year-GOSH cant believe I have a child in middle school. My youngest started 3rd grade and has the hardest teacher in the school but they love each other(Thank goodness) for the 4th year in a row he is in the same classroom as his best friend Brian. My most favorite accompliment for the year is that we have finally found a church home after a 2yr search when we moved here we now have a place that fits us. My kids love going to church and this year have participated in just about everything they have to offer. I think my mom would be proud-she was always so strong about going to church. I have reconnected with many old friends and talk regularly thanks to facebook(yep I am addicted)

Losses we have endured-well we lost my loving uncle Bones this year-he lost his bout with cancer-that was a really tough thing for me becuz it hurt my father dearly and I cant stand that. Thankfully thats all I have for this category.

We have been very blessed this year-through all the ups and downs "HE" has brought us through. With God are things are possible.

My hubs and I were married 10yrs this year and I look forward to many many more years to come. We are getting better at the working together thing-well I should say me-cuz honestly I wasnt to keen on the idea in the beginning but I am dealing with it better-of course he never had a problem with it. All in all I still love him just as much as the day we wed.

Okay so thats pretty much whats running thru my brain at the moment-sure more will come flowing out later so with that... stay tuned people..........

Time and Energy gone

Well I started the evening with the intentions of getting at least 2 pages done. But mother nature messed up my evening. Nana called and said a tornando touched down in Southaven and it was headed our way. So we had to get everything prepared and that messed with my scrappin time. I did finish one page for the 52's site and I got to use my prize rak from memorable seasons-Jill is so awesome.

Got lotsa home chores this weekend - my hubs turns 40 on the 23rd and we are having a birthday bash next weekend. So of course my weekend will be busy getting ready which means a whole lotta indoor and outdoor chores-YUCK! Oh well maybe more scrappin on Sunday.

It's late and I have no more energy so I am off to check my eyelids for holes-TOODLES!!


WOWZA giveaway!

WOw Melissa is have a HUGE I mean HUGE giveaway on her blog

better hurry and get over there cuz it ends today!
Good Luck!

Friday night Crop

Yes tonight I am holding my own personal crop-WOOT WOOT! It's so quiet here in the house-I am not quite sure how to act. Craig took the kids to a Tractor Pull-another one of his surprise adventures. He is so good at doing that and they just love it. This has been a really loooong week but we finished at work on a good note-nice busy day! For those of you who dont know my hubs and I work together and these last 2 weeks have been tough-the car buz aint all that great. It's very hard to be the uplifter all the time-anybody else feel this why-PLEAZ tell me I am not the only one.

So I think we all are getting what we deserve tonight- a little fun for everybody. So I have now finished my first page-which is for the 52's site. Gosh I love that place-good sketches and the friendliest people. And I even won a prize a few weeks back-so what more can you ask for??

Well I am off now to work on somemore. Gonna try to complete a page for the site "Let's Scrap" another really good group of ladies and the sketches reaaaallly challenge me cuz they are just different-cant really explain it. So I 'll keep ya posted on how I do-BBL!!

It's Friday - WOOT WOOT!!!

Well I am declaring today "My Good Friday" =-Why you say??? Well last night I got a little bit of time and put this page together thanks to the sketch over at the scrappiest. Love that sketch so simple and I was able to put this together quickly but I love love love the way it turned out. Mostly cuz I didnt "junk it up" - I have been not feelin to well about my stuff lately-wait did I mention that already??? Anyways I just love love embellies but I feel sometimes I get a little carried away and it ends up looking junky-so hmmmm maybe I should try to scrap in less time which would mean less junk-HAHA!!! Most of the products on this page are from a kit I bought over at "we scrap u scrap" great great kit and real good price-just a little high on shipping in my opinion(as if anyone cares)! Also I tried a new technique-thanks to Jodi's tutorial @ 52sketches52weeks. I made that flower from fabric-so cool & sooo quick! Get over there and check it out-I'm tellin ya its easy as pie and sooo dang cute!

So why else is it "My good Friday" well this morning I tried on a shirt for work that I bought last year (which I bought 6 by the way) and COULD NOT wear them. Well they were ordered from work so guess what - NO RETURNS- so u know where they ended up-pushed to the back of the closet. NOT anymore- I am wearing now as I type and quite comfortably I might add =)
Then I put on a pair of capri's from last year and lordy-wont be wearing these anymore-I look like a baby with a wet diaper-c'mon you know how they sag-hehehehe!!!! I cant believe I have actually been on a diet for 4 months and lost weight-after 27 years of fighting my weight -FINALLY-now if I can just keep it up. Not trying to brag on myself just I am a TERRIBLE dieter and have NO will power. I even got tears in my eyes the other day when I weighed and it said I lost 27lbs. So yes I am tooting my own horn today(dont do that much)!! Yea me!!

The last reason for "mgf" well I am here at work and we are really busy-finally!!! But most important my boys are both playing ball tonight-my absolute fav thing to do is watch my kids play sports! So my day is going well-hope yours is too!

Scrapbook challenges sketch 145

So I got some scrappin time tonight-WOOT WOOT!! Which I was excited becuz I found a new challenge/sketch group thru a blog hop on Friday. The sketch looked real easy and I had just the photos for it. It was such a nice clean one I thought I could do it without junking it up(that's the way I have been feeling about my stuff lately)well, it didnt work. Of course I had to stretch the sketch and add some extra goodies. Although I didnt keep it on a small scale I still like it and I didnt go overboard with "STUFF". So I am headed in the right direction-YEA!!! Humm just looked at it again and of course didn't leave any room for journaling-oh well maybe next time! So here's my take on sketch #145-ENJOY-I'm off now-gotta spend a little time with the hubster before checking my eyelids for holes-nighty night!!

Two for Tuesday

As some of you know I used to live in Memphis and there was a radio station that always played 2 for Tues - 2 songs by the same artist in a row-I always loved listening to that. I am sure there are plenty of other stations around that do the same. But now that we are gone that theme still carries on for me in some shape or form. Well today my 2fer is 2 baseball games in one night-WOOT WOOT!!! i just love watching my kids play ball win or loose! I am a sports junkie like that! So guess what added bonus-NO COOKING tonight as we have a game @ 6 and @ 8:30. I am just hopin the rain holds off.

I was hoping to get some scrappin done tonight as I have a couple of lo's swimming around in my head (I am weird like that) and I am afraid if I dont hurry and get them done they will just float away-LOL!!! But I would much rather watch my kids play ball-so they will have to wait until tomorrow.

So what's your 2 for Tuesday would love to hear from ya!

I'm out-

Happy Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day to all~! Thanks to our vets and those who are now serving-our freedom is becuz of you!

Although I am wanting my freedom right now-as I am stuck here at work-YUCK!!! I could be at home doing some real work today. We have a garden to plant if the dang rain will ever stop, more flowers to plant and nevermind my endless laundry pile-OH crap just realized gotta get them dang ball uniforms washed cuz of course we will be living at the ballfield tomorrow night.

I did get to do some scrappin this weekend. Gosh I love that 52's website. I liked the sketch so much I did 2 pages...... I find it funny that my mood at the moment seems to make its way to my lo. This last week was very busy-what else is new-so therefore my lo seems very busy to me. Well part of my problem is I have so much to tell and cant seem to shorten up my journaling-oh well! I also love embellies they are like costume jewelry-so they are a must for me and I literally have to make myself stop adding them so they dont look gaudy(spelling?).
Well this is my first official blogpost on my own blog-promise they will get better when I figure this stuff out!
Have a great Holiday
