I'm So Happy It's Friday...

For some reason this has seemed like a long week and I am really looking forward to the weekend and the holiday break. That means no early mornings for a bit. With this cooler weather that is very welcome. It's harder to get out of a warm bed when it's cold:(

What oh what has been going on???...I'll backtrack;)

Yesterday Mattie had his student led conference. Steve took him when he got home from work. He made Honor Roll again:) This time he made A/B. He got 2 Bs and they were both 88s, so that's pretty darn good:)

Yesterday I made a quick trip to HL and J's at Crossroads. Just picked up a couple of things I was needing for some little projects. Then I stopped in at Target to check if they'd marked their clearance down anymore...nope, but I did get Mattie 3 pairs of pj pants cause he needed some for the cooler weather.

Visited with my neighbor which I do almost everyday;) Then just hung out. Last night we made popcorn and the kids and Steve watched Journey to the Center of the Earth in 3D even though we've already seen it at the theatre. We hadn't watched it since we bought it.

Wednesday I made a quick trip to the PO to drop a package off for my holiday pea pal, then crossed over to Tuesday morning. I found some pretty good deals:) One of which was this awesome K&Co. Mira paper kit. All for $1.99. I was in shock. Too bad it was the only one there. Besides containing like 20 sheets of the glittered/embossed papers, it also had two of the diecut sheets. I'm sad to say that I paid $1.99 for just one of those sheets at 911 a while back.

That night was Papa John's school night so we ordered in. You know, where the school gets money when you order on certain days:) So no cooking. Yay for me;)

Tuesday me and my neighbor, Ruby went by HL and I picked up the Deep House blade for my Cricut!!! So exciting. I'd been wanting it for quite a while. I was so psyched when I saw it there on Monday and I came home and told Steve about it so he said I could go back and get it...hee hee:)

When he got home we put in the new blade, but I was quite disappointed cause I couldn't get it to cut through the chipboard. Too sad. I was really bummed thinking that it was a total rip off. I posted on and got a lot of negative feedback from people who were having trouble with it too:(

I left it alone and went back the next day to try again. I checked the thread on and someone posted some suggestions on there and I tried them and it worked!!! This is what I managed to cut using my newest cart, Graphically Speaking:

I cut this at a 4 depth so I think the 5 will do a much cleaner cut. I'm a hapy camper:)A pic of V in her new Nick and Nora owl pjs. Can you tell that she loves them??? They are too stinkin' cute. I just LOVE the colors and of course the owls. Who doesn't love owls???!!! I already have a LO in mind;)And here she is again sporting one of her new Yes outfits I snatched up that day with all the clearance clothes. Did I say how much I love those cute little Yes outfits. Why can't they make them in my size:(...;)

Managed to finish up a LO I had sitting on my desk for a while...

The pic is from my birthday this past October. I used my Graphically Speaking cart here again. I am forseeing a lot of usuage of this cart;) Background paper is Scenic Route as is the strip of polka dot pp, Jenni Bowlin lined pp, Wild Saffron tag, 7 Gypsies A La Card stickers, MM tiny alphas. TFL:)
