In the meantime...Here is my crazy week!

From Left to Right:
1. I usually eat my breakfast at my desk...on Tuesday I had a coffee, banana and Fiber One bar (4ww points plus if you include the creamer).  I'm back on Weight Watcher's to stay on track through the holidays!!!
2.  I randomly text my hubby at work with a wacky picture, I think he gets a kick out of it, LOL!!  (I seriously don't know what I did before I had my iPhone!!).
3.  I took Ashley to clean out her car at the collision center~bye bye little Saturn!!  You were a good car to her!!!  RIP!!
4.  I am back on the White Chocolate Mocha bandwagon (I am over pumpkin spice)~and almost ready for Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha!!
5.  It is finally cool enough in AZ for boots!  It was in the 60's last weekend (don't laugh CT peeps!!).
6.  Josh texted me this photo of Kodi all bundled up~it's getting chilly here in AZ (see #5).
7.  I have used my old crock pot a LOT this week!!  I love when I can get my act together and have dinner ready when I walk through the door after work!
8.  I do not encourage pets on the counter...but I think Pete was trying to get my attention by sitting in the kitchen sink!!  This is why I call him CRAZY Pete!!
9.  Today was cloudy and I was kinda it was a 2 cup of coffee day!

**by the looks of it~I really needed my coffee this week, LOL**

OK...I am off to watch some TV with Kodi and the fuzzy blanket!!  

Enjoy Today!

weekly iphone photo dump...(from 2 weeks ago)

Since my hubby is glued to the television tonight...Thought I would post my long over due photo dump!! (this is from 2 weeks ago).

From Left to Right:
1. Pumpkin Spice Latte=YUM!! 
2.  My mom sent me some apples from CT.  They were eaten in a matter of days!!  Nothing compares to New England apples!!
3.  We all got double monitors at work (the 2 different sizes drives my OCD a little crazy), but I LOVE having 2 monitors at work (and at home)!
4.  I Voted!!   By mail, and I am so glad I signed up to do it that way~no line for me~WOOT!
5.  Received some flowers from my church and the smelled awesome!!
6.  Operation Christmas Child is in full swing at church~I LOVE being a part of this ministry!  To read more go here.  
7.  I seriously love this dog!!  I joke he is like my 3rd child...but he really is!!  Yup, I'm that crazy person!!
8.  Someone who used to work with me gave me the cutest Halloween gift...Thanks Scott!!!  I miss working with you!!
9.  Ashley got rear-ended on her way home from work (1 1/2 weeks ago).  She is OK!!  But I don't think her car will make it.  She has had her Saturn since she learned to drive (10 years).  It was a little sad to see it like that!!  And it was a little sad to think she has been driving for 10 years!!  That makes me...old...mature, LOL!!!

Enjoy Today!!

Thursday, November 1, 2012 anyone there???

I cannot believe how long I have neglected the ol' blog!!  Was it really August since I posted last???  YIKES!!  Things have just been busy around here. 

I was talking to my mom on the phone last week and she said "I miss your blog posts."  So...I am going to try to get back into the blogging mojo!

Since today was November 1st (am I the only one in shock over that??), my computer desktop calendar needed to be updated.  I usually grab the one from Shabby Miss Jenn, but it wasn't in her store yet.  So instead I downloaded THIS one. 

I haven't only been neglecting my camera hasn't been feeling the love either.  Since I didn't have any updated photos of my family.  November is dedicated to Kodi!! It seriously makes me smile, just looking at my computer~He is such a crazy dog!!

Enjoy Today!!!

August desktop...

Happy Wednesday Friends!
Things are still crazy around here, but I wanted to pop in with a link, and to share my August Desktop calendar.

Download Shabby Miss Jenn's August Desktop for free...HERE.

I use SMJ's calendars for my home/work desktop EVERY month!!  I love her designs and it is so easy to just drop your photo behind the image (in a photo editing program) and save to your desktop!!  EASY PEASY!

This picture was taken on Father's Day, 3 of my FAVORITE peeps!!

Enjoy Today!!

project life~photo a day for March...

*click image to see larger

Here is the second page of my "March Photo A Day" for my PL album.  Unfortunately I stopped on day 20 of the challenge.  I hope that I will be inspired to keep up and finish the July Challenge!!  You can find the challenge HERE.

I was asked  a few questions regarding digital Project Life,  that I thought I would answer here on the blog:

Q:  How do I add memorabilia to my digital pages?

A:  I have not had any to add yet, but when I do, I will scan the tickets/receipts/etc into a folder on my computer, then edit in Photoshop if needed, then just insert the item the same way I would a photo.

Q:  Where do you get your pages printed?

A:  I have not had any of my PL pages printed yet, but I will most likely use Costco.  They do a great job and are very reasonably priced.  I have heard Persnickety Prints does a really nice job as well.

I am also going to print my "weekly iphone dumps" and add them to my album.  I always make them in 12 x 12 size, so they will fit in perfectly.

Enjoy Today!!

another page done...

Hi All, 
I hope you are having a great week!! I was able to complete a couple more Project Life pages on Sunday afternoon. Here is one from back in March, when I took on the Photo A Day Challenge. 

*click photo for larger view

I really am digging the digital version of Project Life, it is so easy for me just to plug my photos into the templates and get my pages done.

I am going to try my hardest to keep up with the July Photo A Day Challenge.  I love that it helps me photograph random things that I normally wouldn't think about taking pictures of.  And it makes for a fun scrapbook page!!

If you want to play along...Here is the July Challenge :)

Enjoy Today!!!

7.  I put off my cleaning until Sunday...I hate when I procrastinate!!

Enjoy Today!!
I am off to finish up the last few things on my list, see #9.

1.  I have been trying really hard to get 8 hours of sleep each night, which means this is what time I have to go to bed.
2.  YES, I am that person who likes to hit SNOOZE in the morning, because I usually don't comply with #1.

Project Life {mother's day 2012}...

Happy Thursday!!
I don't know about you, but I am ready for the weekend!! 

I put my Mother's Day Project Life page together last week, when I scrapped Josh's Birthday pages (since we celebrated Mother's day on the same day that we celebrated Josh's birthday party), but I have not had time to post it on the old blog.  

Four years ago, I started a little tradition, of taking a picture with me and my kiddo's on Mother's Day (top Left photo, I wish I had started that tradition when my kids were little!!).  I love to look back and see how we have changed.  I seriously have the best kiddos in the world!!  And I was happy that Hershey, who we call the HERSH, (Ashley's Doggie) was there to help celebrate!!  I am not sure what happened to Nate during all the picture taking, but he was there too!!

I just purchased THIS PL kit and hope I have some time to scrap with it this weekend!!

plugging away at my project life pages...

I hope you are enjoying your weekend!!  Here in the US, today is Memorial DayThank you to all the men and women (and their families) who sacrifice so much to keep us safe!! 

Mike and I have been enjoying a laid back weekend.  Last night we watched The Vow, today Ashley and Nate will come over for a very casual cookout, and later  I hope to get some more of my Project Life pages completed.  I did get my Easter page scrapped late Saturday night.  I had forgotten that on Easter Sunday I was starting to come down with a cold, and didn't feel that great, which probably explains the lack of photos, LOL!!  

 *click image to make larger

 Enjoy Today!

Sorry to all of my stamping, card making peeps who stop by my blog for cards and stamping goodness...right now I am on a scrap-booking kick.  I hope you don't mind checking out my PL pages.  I just need a little break from stamping, hopefully it will give me time to get my creative juices flowing again!!

{project life} birthday party games...

I have been in the scrapping mood lately, so I decided to take advantage of it!!  Here is one of the pages from Josh's Birthday party last weekend.  I am really liking the digi version of project life~it just seems a lot easier for me to sit at the computer and have my scrapping stuff all over the computer desktop instead of my dining room table.

weekly iphone photo dump {week 3}...

Hi all!
It has been a busy couple of weeks around here, hence my lack of blog posts!!  Since things have been crazy, I took it pretty easy this weekend.  I had some time to work on my project life album, which has been very neglected!  I will share a few of my pages this week.  I have decided to go the digital route for my 2012 album, and so far it is working out great!!  I may actually get caught up!

And since I get so many questions regarding my phone dump template, I decided to upload a free download for my favorite blog friends!!  You can download the template HERE.  Directions on how to use a clipping mask in Photoshop HERE.  Enjoy!!

Another quick post for tonight.  I am going to spend some time on the sofa with my hubby watching The Office *smile*

Here is another Mother's Day card I whipped up for one of our moms.

I have a busy weekend planned...girls night out on Friday after work, and then we will celebrate Josh's 23rd birthday and Mother's Day on Sunday (we combine it every year~since Josh was born so close to Mother's Day. I cannot think of a better way to spend the day!!).

Have a super weekend!!!

may desktop calendar

Hi friends!!
I hope you are having a great week~I am in training for my new job, so I have been a little preoccupied this week, I am getting used to my new schedule and exercising my brain, a LOT!!

Each month I download the free desktop calendar from Shabby Miss Jen, I love her designs!!   

All you have to do is open up the calendar (and a photo) in a photo editing program (I use Photoshop) and then drag your photo under it.  EASY PEASY!!  

Here is the one I did for my computer at home, and once I get my work computer set up,  it will be on that one too :)

weekly iphone photo dump {april week 4}

I had a fun week participating in Ali Edward's "a week in the life."  I was worried that I would run out of things to take pictures of, but once I got into it, things just seemed to flow!!  I will definitely participate again next year!!  I have not decided if I will make a separate album for all my photos from my WITL or if I will just incorporate it into my Project Life album.  I may post a few of the photos this week, since I did not really have much time to stamp.  I was busy wrapping up all the details from my last job, so I can transition to my new job tomorrow.  I am looking forward to my first day!!  I have been doing healthcare for so long~I think it will be a nice change for me.  

Here is my weekly phone dump (I had LOTS of photos to choose from this week, since I was using my DSLR and my iphone to document my WITL).

weekly iphone photo dump week 4 RS
From Left to Right:

1.  Running some quick errands:  drop off a package for Josh, pick up stamps for work, run to Costco.
2.  This is one of the many times I didn't spend over $250 at Costco~picked up some snacks for the boys and some frozen fruit for me (Yonana's!!)
3.  My kids LOVE this mac & cheese, I prefer homemade, but I gave it a try for lunch the other day, and it was OK (and only 5 ww points plus)
4.  Pete on top of my work (as usual).  I will miss having my crazy pets with me at work!! 
5.  Decided to drop off all my ironing at the dry cleaners (go me!!), check out the bag they gave me with my own name inside so I can drop off laundry anytime, at their kiosk~COOL!!
6.  Mike and I went out for lunch on Friday to a new place up in the foothills, We have eaten at others in the past, and are excited to have one so close to us!!!
7.  Mailed a birthday gift~I love that I don't have to wait in line anymore at the post office, because it never fails, when I go in there,  there is always a line and 2 people working, then one decides to go on break!! (vent over).
8.  Mike and I went out for lunch AGAIN on Saturday, to our usual spot see #9  (we kinda splurged on eating out this week, LOL!!).
9.  Our usual Saturday lunch spot :)

week in the life {my monday}....

Hi all! I hope you are having a terrific Friday!!I have been busy wrapping up stuff for my old office, and getting ready to start my new job on Monday.  

This year I was determined to participate in the Week in The Life!!  I have to say that it has been somewhat easy to keep up with the task.  However, I sometimes do something and then think "I should have photographed that."  

I think it is a great idea to document your ordinary everyday routine.  I will be the first to admit, my life is not too exciting, but I LIKE that!!  

Here are my Monday photos:

Wake up: 6:45 am, head downstairs for some coffee, I am excited to try the new creamer flavor, caramel Macchiato = YUMMY!!

Realized I forgot to take a photo of my bedroom clock and what time I woke up, oh well (hopefully will remember that another day this week)!!  Instead I took a picture of the family room clock.  No worries, it all works out!!

7am - Coffee poured and ready to check emails and blogs for 30 min or so.


7:45 am - Normally I do my laundry on the weekend, but ran out of time, so threw in a load to get it going.

8:45 am - Showered and ready to start my work (working from home this week).  Here is Kodi wondering why I am disturbing his one of many naps!!  Is it just me, or does he look like he is giving me a dirty look?  LOL!!

9 am - Stayed in my home office for most of the day.  I am transitioning to a new job and this week I had a lot of stuff to wrap up for my old office.

2:30 pm - Doctors appointment, so off I went (nothing serious).

2:45 pm - I didn't have to wait too long before the Physicians Assistant came in to see me (my doctor was on vacation this week).  So of course while I was waiting I snapped a picture.  After a quick lab, and a lecture that I am not drinking enough water, I was on my way.

3 pm - I am a good patient!!  So when I got home I poured a glass of water, and have been drinking more this week *go me*

3:15 pm - went back into my office to do some more work wrap up.
The temp on Monday~it is getting HOT here!!  Probably another reason to drink more water!!

6:30 pm - Forgot to photograph dinner, oops! But snapped a few of me cleaning it up.


7 pm - Finished up the the laundry from the morning.

7:30 pm - Mike and Kodi chllin' on the sofa, waiting for me to finish up and join them for some TV watching.

7:45 pm - I whip up some Yonanas for a snack and I join the boys on the sofa.  

9:30 pm - Get ready for bed and played Draw Something/read on my ipad.

10:30 pm - Lights out!

It was a good day!!

Administrative Professional Day...

Happy Administrative Professional Day!!  
Today is going to be a quick post!!  If you didn't know, today is Administrative Professionals Day.  Here is the gift that Mike and I put together for Heather, our Church Administrator.  She is such a blessing to our family (and the rest of the church)!!  I know of many times she has told Mike to GO HOME, which I really appreciate!  She has given of her time for quite some time, and when I say given, I mean GIVEN!!  She volunteers her time and talent to our church selflessly!! 

I cannot list the items inside the bag...just in case she reads this post, since this is waiting for her at the church office once she gets out of work today.  I hope she enjoys it!!

Pin It
I purchased the gift bag at Target and of course had to try to coordinate the card *smile*  

And I don't know what it is about curling ribbon, but my cats LOVE that stuff!!  Must contain some kind of kitty crack!!  Notice Dewey sneaking in the background trying to be inconspicuous? Yeah, I am onto him!!

Enjoy today!!!

a quick tag...

Hi all!! 
I hope you had a fantastic weekend!! Mine flew by faster than usual. 
Saturday Ashley and I went to her BFF bridal shower we had a great time!!   I decided to give a gift card to one of the places she was registered at, that way she can get exactly what she wants, and considering she lives in Texas, it is much easier to transport back home.  I found this cute little bag at Target to put the gift card in, and whipped up a color coordinated tag for it.

 Here it is all packaged up and ready to go!!

Pin It  
Enjoy Today!!
