Don't you just LOVE getting new shoes? I do. Especially new, white runners! I love the way white shoes make your legs look slimmer. They make me feel sporty, yet femine. I love bouncing around the house in them. I guess actually using them should be a part of loving them but once they are used for that purpose, they sort of lose their "newness".
So this infamous baby shower I have been planning is this coming Saturday. Yes, thats right, a week from today. Guess how much housework I have done to get ready for it? YES! Thats right! NONE! Yay me! Tomorrow will be a big day to get my house cleaned up to "officer level" cleanliness.
Does anyone else out there have a two year old? Mine is starting to drive me INSANE. His favorite word is "no". Ok, I know that people warned me about this but HOLY COW, I was so not prepared for it. Matthew has turned into some little evil spawn. He is talking back, doing naughty things on purpose, and copying me at SO the wrong time. It was funny at first and now its just irritating. How much can you really punish a 2 yr old? They just don't quite understand it yet. SOMEONE HELP ME :) Don't get me wrong here, I LOVE my child with ALL of my heart but the spawn is making me pull my hair out.
I also finally put up a rail system in my scrap room. Took me long enough. Along with a rail picture frame that my friend, Amy, bought me for my birthday back in July. I will have to post some pictures soon.
Well I am out of here. Need my sleep in order to clean and deal with spawn-child tomorrow.

I have not posted in forever. If you are anything like me, sometimes the scrapping mojo comes in waves. This summer was LOW TIDE :)
I am totally focused again on my scrapping and am having the BEST time. Diana and I went to two crops in September. The first one, hosted by the Mad Scrappers of Lawton, was in the beginning of the month. They always put on the GREATEST crop! Thank you again ladies! You are the best!
The second was a ScrapPink crop hosted by Scrapbook N'Such of Wichita Falls. Diana and I have been to a handful of their crops down in Burkburnett. We always get a lot done and its a good break from the family :)
What am I working on? Good question. I am finishing a few layouts and altered items and working on a few things for a couple of mags. This is going to be my year, I can feel it!
Watch out world, here I come!

Its been a long three days. Matthew is teething something fierce and has been running a fever for a few days. He has been SO cranky and unmanageable. I always feel so helpless when he hurts and I cannot fix it.
I found out some EXCELLENT news yesterday, in addition to my awesome news earlier this week. It will be a week or two before I can share it but its so great!
Tired tonight. Just completely wore out. I also think Mo took Jo on a vacation and they don't want to come back. We will see where the night takes me.
Been watching Army Wives. This is a GREAT show! Watch it! Its on Lifetime.
Over and out!

We bought a firetruck/car for Matthew today. We have been wanting to get one but were torn on getting one from a consignment store or from the PX. We decided to go the consignment store route and could find NONE, and I mean NONE, around! Usually I see 10 to 15 of them on my way home from work! How could this be!? Well, we really had our heart set on getting him one so we headed to the PX. He LOVES his new car. It makes sounds and lights up too!I finally also finished some projects I have been trying to work on for over a week now. A blinged frame for my friend, Amy, who's birthday was on the 23rd and a rotary frame for my FIL who's birthday is on the 30th. Both will go out in the mail tomorrow. YAY!
Ok, now on to my problem. I am really worried that Matthew is hitting his terrible two's and Rich and I are totally unprepared for it. He is screaming in stores if he doesn't get his way, he swings at us if we take something away or tell him no, he doesn't listen ON PURPOSE and throws temper tantrums ALL DAY.
Conversation between Matthew and I earlier:
Mommy: Matthew please don't play with that marker.
Mommy: No, Matthew, thats Mommy's. We don't play with mommy's scrap stuff.
Mommy: No, Matthew, please go put it back.
He proceeds to go to my scrapbook room and trade the marker for my camera.
Mommy: We don't play with that either Matthew. Please give it to Mommy.
He looks at the camera, looks at me, looks back at the camera and takes off running. Daddy chases him down, takes the camera, tells him no and he swings at Daddy.
Anyone have any advice? :)
Ok I am out of here! Hope everyone has a great Tuesday!

Today has been such a lazy day! I love it in some ways and in others it annoys me. Matthew is teething again so he is BEYOND cranky and my dh is so tired from staying up all night that he has been passed out on the living room floor for hours. So its left to me to deal with the little monster until his scheduled nap times. FINALLY he is down for an hour...
I found two pictures of Rich's parents. One taken recently when we all had our family pictures taken together and another from a LONG time ago of the two of them on his dad's old fishing boat, hugging. It brings up such strong emotions in me that I just HAVE to scrap them together :) I will post it when I finish.
Ok enough for now. Need to scrap.

So tomorrow is FINALLY Friday! The beginning of a BEAUTIFUL three day weekend. The weather outlook may be gloomy but it is three days that I get to spend home with my family before going back to work. YAY!! We really have no plans for this Memorial Day weekend. Rich and I have date night tomorrow night. We are going to see Pirates of the Carr. Part 3!!! Orlando Bloom
Happy early Friday wishes to everyone!

It's been a while since I built this blog and made a new post! STAR at Scrapstreet is over. Diana and I made it to round 3. We were VERY proud of ourselves but totally out-talented by some AWESOME girls (and one guy!). As we become more experienced scrappers, its crazy to see the difference in layouts from last fall to now. I will have to post some differences soon.
Can you believe its already the final day!!!! I have liked Jordin from the beginning and have crossed my fingers for her every round. Maybe its because she isn't the smallest girl, kwim? She is beautiful and talented and doesn't have to be a twig. Congrats Jordin!!!!

I have finished my "it" layout. It didn't turn out EXACTLY how I had planned it but I am pretty pleased with it.
Every time I look at these pictures of Rich and I, I just have to smile. He is such a great husband but can be SUCH a pain in the butt. Love is so crazy like that.
