The last day of June...

Can you believe that??! The year is half way over!
They already had fall AND some Christmas ornaments out at Hobby Lobby this weekend! WHAT!!?? I think that is NUTS! BUT...I bought some cute Bunko prizes...it's not at my house until October...but I just couldn't resist. I also got a few scrappy things (OF COURSE!) and some things for my group at Camp.
Camp is next week and I am going as a "couselor" again this year...I don't really think of myself as a couselor...just hoping to maybe show them some love and more importantly God's love and just to listen and hopefully teach a little...and have fun, too!! I can't wait. I can't say which group of girls I have just yet...we are not letting them know until the day of camp and some of the girls read my blog...so the word is MUM! I will update with pics and all when I get back...

Last week and this weekend were SUPER busy! I was helping plan our church Choir banquet, which was Saturday AND a baby shower, which was Sunday afternoon...after church. So most of the week was getting those two things ready and also trying to get the house organized and cleaned! Our small group is starting back up tonight and we are having at our house now...at least for the summer. So I am trying to get the house looking beautiful! HA! Quite a task with all these crazy boys here :D
My week was also consumed with getting back to a work out routine...I had kinda fallen out of my old one and started back again Wednesday...So I was SUPER, DUPER sore Thurs-Sun. Today was much better and I hope it will only get better from here. We started doing a resistance band workout and I am totally lovin' it...It kicks my booty, but it's acutally fun.

Ok.
So my last post talked about a little contest that I was in...and that I had made it to the next round of 20...well, last Monday they narrowed it down to 10 and unfortunately my name was not on the list. I was pretty bummed, but I made a really fun project that I love and had an awesome time making. It was for Bryson's room and he totally love it, too!
Here it is...







And...
Here is also my work for Triple the Sketch...for Sketch #13...


If you are a scrapper...you should go check it out and make something awesome with Patter's sketch!

Well...That is all I can think of for now. I will leave you with a B funny...

Yesterday he was kind of upset about a little plastic golf ball that our dog Remi had chewed on. He was showing all of us, saying "Look what Remi did to my ball!"...very sad...showing each of us and making us examine it. He then walked back over to D and said "Smell it"...and D said "Smell it?"...B said "Yeah, smell it". So D smelled it and then B started giggling. We both looked at each other and I said "Did he just trick you?"
Well...I don't know if that is as funny to me as it will be to you...but I was crackin' up! The brain of a two year old...makes me giggle!

Have a great week!!!!
