Brrr...I Wish I Had Fur...

OK...we are just too used to the heat. I'm sure it's not as cold here as it is in other places. I know others have already had snow and such, but I'm cold!!! Also the pilot in our central heat is acting up so we need to have someone come and look at it. I spent quite a while yesterday trying to get it to stay on and Steve did too very early this morning before he left for work...but no go. We had to get up to a cold house...not fun:(

In other birthday weekend was fun. I got to sleep in a bit on Saturday morning. Steve took the day off. I woke up and Steve brought me my birthday cards (cute) and my gift (a jacket I had been wanting).

A pic of all the goodies I accumulated over the course of the day:) More new Crate papers (LOVING these:), finally got some of the Doodlebug Paper Frills and some of the Jenni Bowlin crepe paper ribbons. Lots of new goodies. I can't wait to play with:)

Oh...a new Fancy Pants 12x12 stamp set I just got:)

We went out to breakfast then dropped the kids off with my MIL. We did some shopping around town. Went to the new Joann's store, Scrapbook 911, M's, SB Heaven. We went out to lunch at Sea Island. I had the coconut shrimp. I LOVE coconut shrimp:) We were going to do a movie, but Steve's parents had a rosary to go to; one of their customers. So we cut our day kind of short.

We came home and did the cake. A yummy Black Forest that Steve ordered from Luby's. It's my fave:P
I've got quite a few LOs done this past week too. Using up that yummy Crate paper. This has to be some of my favorite lines so far; the new Crate-Prudence, Lemongrass and Mia:)

Those yummy Crate papers; Lemongrass on this one along with the glitter diecuts. I used one of my MS border punches and a Fiskars corner border punch on two of the papers here. Also used a dimensional tree sticker I got in the T's dollar post. Chatterbox chipboard letters, MM tiny alphas and a Sandylion dimensional owl sticker.

For this one, I used the Page Maps sketch that Jennie posted on the 911 blog:) Crate papers and glitter diecuts again. I made my own lollipop embellies using the tutorial. Bazzill Just the Edge and I cut some leaves out of some Queen & Co. felt.

This one is a lift off the Crate site. Crate paper again. This time the Prudence line as well as the diecuts. Also used an AL flourish stamp.

Another lift from the Crate site. Lemongrass papers and diecuts again, some buttons and some borders I made using my Threading Water punch.

Only two more days to Halloween. The kids are really excited:) We made goodie bags for V's class. We put a bag of mini oreos, a bag of Teddy Grahams, a bag of mini Ritz Bits, a Halloween pencil and a coupon for a free treat from McDonald's.

We also have conference at V's school on Friday morning; first report card of the year. Steve it taking the day off so let's see what else we plan for the day. Have a good one:)
