march photo challenge {days 18,19 &20}

Hi all,
Here are my March Challenge photos for the 18, 19, and 20th.  I think it is easier to post them in groups, LOL!!

Day 18 {a corner of your home}
This is the corner hutch my grandmother gave me, I don't really have lots of nick-knacks, but some of my favorite ones are inside (can you tell I like snowmen, LOL!! Must be my Connecticut upbringing!!).
18 March corner of your home A RS

Day 19 {funny}
When Josh puts a new bandana on Kodi, it makes me smile (not sure if that qualifies as funny)!!  He is not really a froo-froo doggie, but I think he is pretty darn cute with a bandana!!

19 March Funny A RS

Day 20 {before / after}
This one is pretty self explanatory!! 

20 March before after A RS  

Enjoy Today!!!

It's almost spring...

Tomorrow is the first day of spring!!  So even though the weather here in Arizona feels anything but spring like (a high of 55 degrees today), which is VERY unusual for us!!  so I made this card with my new Ali Edwards stamp set.  I love Ali's stamp sets for my Project life album (I have not even taken my new kit for this year out of the box yet, argh!!), as well as for cards.  

Spring AE

So even though I am not feeling the springtime weather, this card makes me feel spring like!!

Happy Monday!!
Enjoy Today!

weekly iphone photo dump...week 3 March

weekly phone dump week 3 march RS

From Left to Right:
1.  This is my alarm clock on most days, he lets me know when he thinks I have slept too much and need to get up, CRAZY Pete.
2.  Mike and I tried a new spot for our usual lunch date, Pita Jungle, it was yummy!!  We both got a gyro pita (I seriously do not know the correct way to pronounce it!!  I say year-o, is that right??).
3.  Grocery shopping on Saturday night with one of my favorite peeps~we sure know how to PARTY on the weekend!!
4.  It was chilly in Phoenix today 46 degrees this morning (and rainy), and by Phoenix standards, that is STINKIN' cold!!  So it was a great excuse to get a SB's on the way to church.
5.  After I went through the SB's drive through and took a sip of my coffee, I noticed that they made me a mocha instead of a white chocolate mocha *sad face* I am really not a coffee snob, but I went in to get the right one and they told me to keep the mocha~Mike was the happy recipient.
6.  My lunch today was a baked potato with turkey chili, sour cream and cheese (so yummy on a cold day, see #4).
7.  This is who sits next to me while I eat, see #6, of course I always leave him a few bites, he isn't spoiled~to badly, LOL!!
8.  I was laying down for a Sunday nap, and Dewey felt the need to head butt me and play with my zipper!!  CRAZY Dew!
9.  Mike and I took Kodi for a VERY short walk, because it was stinkin' cold outside, see #4, I really could have used a winter jacket!!  Can you believe I am originally from Connecticut??

Enjoy Today!!
