Project Life Wednesday {anniversary weekend}...

Hi all,
I hope you are having a great week!!  
Last night I scrapped our anniversary, which was January 25, I am so thrilled to be almost caught up (I am in 2013 peeps!!).  This week I took out my camera and decided that am going to try to take 3 pictures (at least) per day (I put it in a spot that is convenient and easy to grab).  I really need to start looking through my lens again, and get more creative with my PL pages.

Enjoy Today!!

weekly iphone photo dump - {march wk 4}

From left to right:
1.  I pulled out the spring/summer clothes from the back of my closet this week!!
2.  Found these cute mason jar cups at Walmart (thanks to Jess)~super cute!!  BPA free, great for my water at work, and cute to look at too!!
3.  I have been looking for these chips (requested by Josh), for 3 weeks.  They finally had them in stock at the grocery store.  I am NOT a fan!!
4.  My co-workers surprised me on Friday with a cupcake and frosting bar for my birthday!  If you know me, than you know I LOVE frosting!  It was perfect!!  
5.  Tulips were also part of the work birthday celebration~I work with some pretty great peeps!!
6.  Mike and I went to lunch at Macayo's.  They bring you chips and salsa while you wait for your food...I could have just ate the chips and salsa for lunch!  So YUMMY!
7.  We picked up some bones from the butcher shop on Saturday for Kodi and Sophie.  That kept them busy for a few hours.  Although it was really weird seeing it laying on the floor~kinda gross!!  But the doggies were happy!
8.  I know I have said it before, but I am loving the weather in AZ!!  PERFECT!!
9.  You could say I have a little Peep addiction, LOL!  I got peeps with my birthday presents from Jess, Ashley and my mom this year!!

5 on Friday

1.  I am so EXCITED that the weather is warming up!!  I love living in AZ!!

2.  Mike and I are addicted to this Show, and are learning lots of things to do with Kodi and Sophie.  But I have also learned that I am a big softy when it comes to implementing them, LOL!!

3. I cannot believe that Easter is next week!!  I really need to get in my craft room!!

4.  I have been wanting to make one of these since December and the supplies are still in a bag in my craft room, Geesh!!

 5.  And if you are friends with me on Facebook, you saw this already, but I think it is so neat how Kodi shows Sophie how to do things.  My cats totally do NOT do that, LOL!!  

Sophie is learning how to be on a leash and walk with us, Kodi is a great teacher!!

Here is a lay out of my hubby getting his Master's Degree in Management this past June~SO proud of him!!

Project Life Wednesday {father's day}...

Happy Wednesday!! 
I hope your week is off to a fabulous start!!  I thought I was almost done with my 2012 PL pages, but it seems that  I keep finding pictures that haven't been scrapped yet.  This layout is from Father's Day (June 2012), and it is a little picture heavy (I probably could have done 2 layouts, but I am trying to wrap up 2012)

I am anxiously awaiting the release of the new PL digital editions (I'm ready for some new goodies!)!!  Have you seen them?  It's gonna be hard making up my mind!! (I couldn't find a link of them~sorry!!)

3.  I've been having a love affair with hummus!!  I ate it for lunch with carrot sticks 2 days last week~so good!
4.  With 2 dogs and 2 cats, this is a must in my purse!!

6.  We had hail on Friday!!  I was hoping for a snow day...nope!!  
7.  Mike and I ate at Sweet Tomatoes on Saturday, I love all the fresh veggies and salad fixings (and the bread).

I am always so glad when Friday rolls around!  I really miss having a day off during the week like I used to!!  Luckily I like the peeps I work with, LOL!!

Enjoy the Weekend!!!

for a friend...

Happy Friday! 
For some reason this week seemed to go really slow!! Probably because I thought that Wednesday was Thursday, and Thursday felt like Friday~I am just glad that the weekend is HERE!! 

 I whipped up a quick card for an old friend (for the friend isn't old, LOL!). I seem to have a few friends going through some rough patches right now! I hope things start looking up for them. 

Do you have any exciting plans for the weekend? Just the usual around the Clark house~errands and housework, and maybe some creative time, I hope anyway!!
Enjoy Today!
