A day late....again...

I don't know why I have been such a slacker lately! UGH!!

Anywho...
We've had another busy week. Derek was out of town all week and got back yesterday...and then he went to do paintball this morning with our church youth group...Hopefully he will get back soon :( I miss him!!!

Last night we went to a friend's house for her little one's first b-day. He was so excited to play with his new toys AND to eat cake. We had a nice time visiting...and then a HUGE storm blew in...and we had walked over to their house! EEK! So we had to get a ride home. After we got home and put the kids down, I went on the front porch to watch the lightening and noticed my hanging flowers were not there...they had fallen on our flowers below and squished one of them...then I noticed that my DH's UT thing he had hanging was gone. It's one of those metal spinning things...with pointy edges...I said it could have taken out one of the teenagers drinking beer next door (We have some college kids that live next door...I think they have parties every night..??? Can someone say payback...um, yeah!!)...I mean it could have, but it didn't. But I looked again for it this morning and I can't find it...?? The wind was seriously kickin' last night...it was awesome!

So another thing I've been slackin' at is not taking photos. I don't think I've taken a photo in 2 weeks (besides my DQ picks down there---V) So, I really don't have any pics to share :(

I know...

it's a sad, sad day in bloggy world...

Ok, snap out of it!
So the week before last we had VBS...I was in the craft room...go figure...and it was exhausting!! I was totally worn out by the end of the week...but we had SO much fun! Derek did outside rec...I don't know if we can be anymore opposite...which I think is one of the best things about us. I guess our children will be very rounded...eh?

Another super awesome thing I have been doing the last two weeks is scrapping with one of the teenage girls from my church. She's very artsy-craftsy and majorly talented and I had told her anytime she wanted to venture into the scrappy world, to let me know. So she approached me at church and asked if I could help her make an album for her boyfriend. Of course I said yes and the rest is history. I asked her yesterday if she was addicted and she said YES!! LOL!! She's been sucked in...I hope I haven't created a monster...HEE HEE!! Love ya, Anna!!!

The uber talented Lissa Anglin had a little contest on her blog a few weeks ago and I actually won! The prize was either an 8x10 of a previous shoot, 10% off a new shoot or a suprise gift...I decided I wouldn't be able to live life completely not know what the suprise was, so I opted for that. Well, I rec'd it in the mail last week and she sent me these cool little stickers of my boys...


Pretty awesome! THANKS LISSA!!!

I also had LO of the week last week at Scrap for a Cure! I didn't realize it until the week was almost over! Totally made my day! Thanks SFAC!!!!

And last but not least...I haven't shared any of my Triple the Sketch stuff...like ALL month! EEK!!!! So here are my projects...





Ok...I guess that is all for today...It's almost a new week AND it's the first day of summer...so maybe I will turn over a new leaf...??? and not be so slacky...???
We shall see...

Later,
Em
