just had to

I had to do a LO of's from our photo shoot this past Saturday. I must say, all the photos got so good! But, this one I just loved. How can you not love a little one with chubby cheeks and sunglasses? And, he thinks he's hot stuff, too.

Here's to five more days of work before the weekend. Perhaps I am feeling a wee bit ill and may have to take a sick day this week. Hmmmm?????

and another Sunday

Where did the weekend go? I can't believe it's Sunday AGAIN! So, yesterday I got out the calendar and counted the days until the end of the school year. I think I am loving the number 28 right now. I am so ready for summer vacation. I can feel it, I can taste it and I can see it. It just needs to get here.

Yesterday I had a good time snapping pictures of my niece and her husband and Aiden. He sure is growing like a weed. I was quite happy with the results and I can't wait to scrapbook some of the photos. We spent an hour or so up at Founder's Hall. It was a great place for a photo shoot.

Two more LO's from my crop from last weekend. I've been on a scrappy roll. My creative muse is back!

Here's to beautiful weather, and a me weekend (I just love when the men are away)!

holy schmoly

This past weekend I was able to go and crop the weekend away...just what the doctor ordered after such a long week. I am so ready for summer vacation. I think I have a whooping 29 more days of school. Do you see me doing the happy, happy dance?

another DT reveal

It has been another fun month designing for scrap addict sketches. Please make sure to check out the team's and my layout at:

Well, I have been so sick. I am tired of blowing my nose, having a nasty cold and this congestion is so bad...when will it ever get better? It is now going on a week of being sick. Go away, nasty cold!

Here's to the rainy weather we have been having...the rest of the week is supposed to be beautiful with the high in the 60's and lots of sunshine.

Happy Sunday

Well, it is NOT a happy Sunday. Those of you that know me well, know that I loathe Sundays from September through May. So, I am in depressed mode right now knowing that the weekend is soon over. It was a good weekend. I guess I should focus on the positive and not dwell on the negative.

Saturday I went to the stamping convention in Allentown with my sister, Kathy. We had an enjoyable day. I didn't purchase one stamp, but did manage to buy a bunch of other items, one being a brand spanking new ATG gun. I do believe I am going to like this new baby even though it will take some time getting used to it. It will defnitely be more cost efficient in the long run.

Today Lighty and I went to the HD dealership and finally found him a leather coat that FITS. It's been a long four months hunting for the perfect leather. I guess you not only have to look good when riding the Harley, but leather will definitely help you if you take a fall and it does help against the cold and wind. I also found me some sunglass goggles. I hope this helps with the wind in my eyes because that feeling is downright miserable.

I also managed to finish two of the LO's that I started when we were at the cabin last weekend. It feels good to finally scrap again.

So, here's to bourbon slushies, chocolate chip ice cream and ATG guns.

long week

Actually, the week went by pretty fast but it's been a long and draining Friday. I don't want to offend anyone here, but did you know that parents can be such enablers? Lighty does this a lot, some parents at school do this. If you are guilty of this, STOP it now. Let children fight their own battles and work things out for themselves. It makes them better individuals.

Enjoy your Friday night and may it be filled with a good dinner and an early bedtime.


The weekend is here. Finally. And to top it off, only 39 more days of school until summer vacation. I am so excited. I love my job, but I love summer vacation so much better.

Hope your day is filled with lots of sunshine and a warm springbreeze.

21 days ago, I got twelve chick eggs. As of today, all twelve eggs hatched and all chicks are healthy. The kids are so excited. It has been a fun and informative process. I would say we had a very successful hatch. Actually, it is unusual that all eggs hatch and those that do hatch are healthy. Embryology ROCKS!
