It's Finally Monday...

and V went back to school today. As much as I love that was time;) She was very eager to go back too. We got all her assignments done over the weekend, so she was good to go.

We didn't do much yesterday. Stayed in for breakfast. Steve ran by his mom's. When he got back I ran quick like by Tuesday Morning and got me that self healing mat for my desk. It was only $14.99 and it's big enough to cover up pretty much my whole desk area AND it's pink!!! :) I really love it. I also found another of the AC 12x12 D ring albums and picked that up too. The price is such a GREAT deal.

When we got home, Steve took my truck to wash and V to get donuts at Krispy Kreme. I went over to chat with Ruby and when Steve got back, we all sat out enjoying the nice weather. An ice cream truck came by and we had a nice little treat;) We have to do that now as much as possible before it gets too hot. Our summers are just unbearable:(

So today I got all my cleaning chores done and then I had a little scrap time. Instead of working on the current LO in progress, I decided to play around with some new dies and cuts. This is what I made...

I made these using a Quikutz die I got some time back off of 2Peas. He is SO cute!!! :)These I made by using my Walk in the Garden Cricut cart. I used the "shell" part of the lady bug for the tops of the mushrooms. Then I cut one inch strips of the yellow paper for my stems and just rounded them out freehand:)These I made using a Sizzlits die I picked up at the last 911 garage sale. I think they turned out pretty cute. Instead of the cherry that goes on top, I put a button to take it's place:)

I plan to work on my LO in progress tomorrow. Shouldn't take me too long as I am about half way done.

Going to go watch Twilight...again. I LOVE that movie. I can not wait for New Moon. I just know it's going to be so much better. Can't wait:)

Even though I've been sleeping in until almost 8 as opposed to my usual 6:30, I still feel like I need a break. V will hopefully be going back to school on Monday. She is almost done with her meds.

I went by the school this morning and picked up her missed class assignments. Boy, did she have a lot of work to catch up on. She's done some of it already, but still has quite a bit to go. We'll work on some more later today and then do more over the next couple of days.

So I finally finished my LO from yesterday. I didn't find any Prima leaves like I wanted to finish it off, but I improvised and I like the way it turned out. This is another lift off of Allison Shubert. I can not get enough of her work. She totally ROCKS!!!

I used MM Amplified diecut paper, October Afternoon pp, Prima felt border and some sunflowers I had in my stash as well as some Primas I got at M's a while back. My branch is Cricut cut. The leaves are from a flower bunch; I trimmed them off and used Glue Dots to attach them. The centers of the sunflowers are felt. The butterfly was cut using one of my Sizzix dies and some BG Urban Prairie. Sheer polka dot ribbon and an MM Chole's Closet decorative pin through the bow in the flower. Also used a Jenni Bowlin mini bingo card and one of my MME Laundry Line stamps to make the little "card" behind the pic.

That's all I have to share for now. TFL:) Have a great weekend:)

Pretty in Pink...

Only if you are Molly Ringwald. V woke up yesterday with pink eye. OMG!!! It's just one thing after another with this little girl. It looked horrid:( It was SO red:( I'm guessing it was from her infection; must've spread to her eye cause it was the same side as the really bad ear.

So I put some allergy eye drops in it twice yesterday. No fever yesterday, but today...earlier this evening, she was running a very low grade again. Then this afternoon, right after we went to pick up Mattie she broke out in hives!!! She came up to me and asked me what was on her cheek/neck cause it was itchy and I noticed them. I took her to the bathroom to put some anti-itch cream on it and noticed it starting to show on the other side. It was SO red. So I put some on both and then a few minutes later, she is sitting in the kitchen at the island and says she feels some under her eye and there they were!!! So I gave her some Benadryl. That seemed to do the trick cause about 20 minutes later it was all gone. Let's just pray that she doesn't wake up with something else tomorrow:(

We stayed in all day today. Good thing cause it looked pretty dark and cloudy this am and then the rain kicked it. It rained for the better part of the day then cleared up around the time I went to go get Mattie.

I got a chance to scrap yesterday. Got two done. Both are lifts from my latest issue of Memory Makers.

I used some MM Passport pp on this one. AL flourish/word stamps and a sticker mounted onto cardstock and cut out. Some Prima flowers and Center Kiss, CI rubon, Paper Studio glitter flourish sticker and some MME and Paper Studio pp strips.

I used some MM ledger paper for this one. An Anna Griffin transparency I got at M's, some old Daisy D's French Market pp, Prima lace and some 7 Gypsies cardstock stickers. Also a Jenni Bowlin mini bingo card and some adhesive gems.

I worked on another one today. Took me a bit longer as I kept going back and forth. It took a little more work than either of these two and it's still not quite finished. I want to add one more thing if I can find it, so I will update with that one tomorrow. Hopefully I can get some more scrapping done.

I have to go by the school tomorrow to pick up V's classroom work for this week so she can catch up on what she'd missed. The only thing she had done was her spelling assignments cause I got her list off the online class newsletter. She was real apprehensive about what she was going to have to make up so now she'll have the weekend to work on it:)

Well, I best be getting to bed. Praying this will be an easier night and we can all get some much needed rest:)

It's Not Easy Being Sick...

or caring for the sick:( V got hit pretty hard. Ended up taking her in to the dr. on Monday morning. She'd been running fever and had started complaining about her other ear as well. Turned out she had a very bad throat and ear infections. Got some antibiotics and she's home until at least Thursday. She's still running some fever. Not as bad as the first few nights though Thank God, but still low grade. So I'm having to get her up to take her meds, watching the fever as so on. I can't wait for her to be back to her old self again.
So I haven't done much of anything, but stay indoors with her. She's also still got a bit of a cough. I might just keep her home this whole week. Friday is an early release day anyway. I know she's really bored already, but you can see it in here eyes; she is not well. She just hates missing school and being home. I'm sure she's dying to interact with her little girlfriends, but I don't want to send her back before she's ready. The doctor said ear infections take a bit more time and being in school, she'd be missing a dose of her meds and I want to get her off to a good start. By next Monday she'd be pretty far along on them. We will see how things play out.

Some pics to share from last week. Finally got the cupcake stamps pic up:)

I bought two others that are not pictured here. One is a border type on that says "cupcakes forever" and the other is two cherries that says "love you with a (pic of cherries) on top". The chicks border stamp is from the barn animals section. There were LOTS of other stamps from both of these themes. The cupcakes ones had wood mounted and clear. The farm animals ones were just wood mounted and then there was a whole fairy set in the just the clear ones. All these have all sorts of other themed goodies as well. Go check out your M's:)

A couple of pics from last Friday. It was group picture day for V at school:) This was the day she came home not feeling well at all. Poor thing:( And I just realized that this is the same time she was sick last year cause she missed group pic day and in Kindergarten she came home sick on group pic day and then missed the individuals school picture day. Uncanny, but must be whatever is in the air around this time.

And here is poor Baby Girl...bored, bored, bored. She was laying on the floor today playing with different board games. Here she was with Mouse Trap...The mice were "eating" the cheese:)You can see it in her eyes; she just doesn't feel well:(

Well, not much else going on around her except blowing of noses and such. I'll update later. I'm hoping to get some scrapping time in later this week. Fingers crossed:)

In Addition...

Don't know how I could have forgot to mention in yesterday's post that Mattie once again made A/B Honor Roll. He has made it every grading period this year so far. Well, he made straight A's on the first one, but these are super good grades. The best he's ever had and I'm not sure if this should be credited to the slight increase we made on his meds, but I am SUPER pleased. This is seriously a HUGE sigh of relief for me. I have always worried SO much about how much he struggled in school. If I had known that this TINY increase would have made such a difference I would have done it a lot sooner rather than delaying it. Seriously.

And in other super fab Mattie news...he passed the reading part of his TAKS!!! OMG!!! Another HUGE load off my shoulders. I was SO stressing this cause he totally needs to pass to go to the 9th grade. We still have the Math part to go, but I am feeling a lot more confident on this as well.

He is still doing the morning tutoring, but now only for the math part and next Friday there is a Math TAKS workshop on early release day that he is doing also. He needs all the extra help he can get and I am SO grateful for all these opportunities he has at his school to help him achieve his goals.

Today Lal and Lij came over early in the am. Oh, thanks for the bacon, Lal;) I'll get you on that later. Totally forgot. So we hung out here for a while cause we were just getting up here. Got breakfast going, tidied up and then we went to M's at Ingram. Found the new goodies there too and I got the stamp I accidently put down yesterday. Also this really cute jouranl that will work great for some journaling sheets. Also picked up the K&Co. Que Sera Sera paper pad with my 50% off coupon and shared it with Lal. Mattie used a coupon for me too and I got another pack of these like layered Primas that I LOVE.

Went by T's and got my 3 disc exclusive Twilight...!!! Came home and watched while we ate McD's that Lal picked up for us. LOVE it!!! Maybe I'll watch again in bed;)

V started feeling under the weather again this afternoon; complaining of a headache and sore throat. I gave her some medicine and then after Lal left early this afternoon, we took a little nap on the couch.

We had planned on going out to eat Cici's when Steve got off work cause V had been wanting that, but she got up complaining of an earache and she was running a fever again so we stayed in and ordered Papa John's instead. Lucky for us it was Customer Appreciation Day and we got large pizzas for only $6.99.

So I gave V some Motrin and put some drops in her ears. The fever went down and hasn't come back so far. Gotta keep an eye on it through the night. I hope it's not a rough one:(

Not sure what we have planned for tomorrow yet. I am going by the big J's though. I had planned on going today too, but that got postponed as well. So let's see what I find. I heard there were some SUPER good clearance deals. I hope I can find some. More tomorrow...and I'll update with the stamps from M's pic too. Night.

It's Friday...I'm in Love...

With all the new Prima goodies. I got these in the other day. Ordered from a friend's Ebay store. VERY reasonable and super fast shipping:) The two stamps were from ACOT.

It's all just SO beautious. I SO want to get some more of the butterflies and some different colors in the Say it in Pearls. Probably some black ones. and I just ADORE that bingo stamp. Now I can make my own bingo cards;) Woo hoo!!!A recent LO. This was a lift off one that Lal just did. I used the WRMK Teen Angst papers that Lal shared with me. Some of the new Bazzill edges, a couple of the BG Obscure diecuts. MM tiny alphas, AC Thickers and a chipboard #3 for my title. OH, and I finally used some of my Magic Mesh Lal got me for Christmas:)This was also a lift off of one Lal did which she lifted off of someone on I used mostly Jenni Bowlin here, some Prima Essentials, HS verb stickers (Lal shared a pack with me:) 7 Gypsies sticker and a piece of Foofala paper.

I went to M's and picked up some super cute cupcake wood mounted stamps. I haven't uploaded the pic though so I'll do that tomorrow. I'm going to go to a different M's cause I accidently put one back that I wanted while I was sorting through all the stamps there:( Didn't realize it until I came home though. My little stamp basket is starting to get pretty full. I just might need to get another;)

Oh...tomorrow Twilight comes out on DVD. I can't wait!!! I'm giddy just thinking about it. Open, open, open...LOL Until tomorrow.

Twofer Tuesday...'s not Tuesday yet, but close enough;) I got two more LOs done this afternoon. I'm on a roll. I was going to go for one more when I realized the paper I was going to use was missing!!! Lal had shared her new WRMK Teen Angst pad with me; gave me a sheet of each, but in going through them this evening I realized I was missing one. The one I was going to use. So hopefully tomorrow Steve will pick it up for me and I can work on it in the evening. Poor Steve. I've had him stop by there to pick up like 3 little chipboard letters or some small embellie...what a guy:) they are. Both are lifts from the Feb. issue of Scrapbooks Etc.

I used some old MM Cosmo for this one; the polka dot and the striped. Sure am glad I didn't get rid of it;) The original artisan at the bottom is MM Chelsea's Place. I used the artisan to trace onto the other pp and then cut it out with my Cutterbees. Used my Threading Water punch on the striped and the cut it to fit over the artisans. HS ghost heart, some buttons, AL stamp, tiny Primas, some MM white rubons and some AC foam Thickers:)I used my new MM Sabrina line on this one. The other paper; the green one with the print is Amy Butler. Butterflies are HS felt, MM 5th Avenue tag I cut. Paper Studio flourish rubon. Quote is from Dr. Suess:)

Hopefully I'll have a couple more LOs to share tomorrow. Have a good night everyone:)

Boo Hoo for Spring Break

So the kids had Spring Break last week and I must say it was somewhat of a bummer. The weather turned cold and rainy so we did NADA. Steve also had to make two trips out of state for work so...:(

Thursday he had to go to Oklahoma so I went over to hang with Lal at my mom's. I had a mini crop night;) I got two LOs done.
Both of these were lifts off of Stephanie Howell. She is just FAB!!! :) Here I used CI scalloped edge pp and a sheet of the MM Flower Patch artisan. M's is supposed to be getting this line in and I went over the weekend, but they had everything BUT the papers:( and not sure they are going to be carrying the shaped ones cause all the papers were priced at 69 cents:( Anyho...MM Sabrina frame and MM tiny alphas, some misc. chipboard letters and AC grid pp. I used some of the lyrics to this Paul Simon song about a father and daughter. This pic was from my uncle's wedding recently.On this one I used Prima Angelique pp. I do believe this was one of the sheets sent to me by the SUPER talented and very generous Allison Shubert. I PMd her on 2Peas to inquire about a particular sheet of paper and she sent me an awesome package of papers and embellies!!! The diecut and tag are K&Co. Que Sera. HS block alpha stickers and MM tiny alphas again. I'm so loving these. I think I need to restock;) The frame behind the pic is Cricut cut with the Storybook cart. Some lace trim around the pic and then I added some little fabric roses from the craft dept.:)

This one I did on my own yesterday. Lal lifted this one too a short time back from the 2Peas gallery of apeainthepod. Daisy D's pp, Jenni Bowlin Farmer's Wife artisan pp, Cosmo Cricket Dutch Girl pp, MME pp and diecuts, MM tiny alphas...AGAIN;) I hand cut the clouds out of cardstock. Used my Fiskars Apron Lace border punch on the bottom of one of the MME papers and distressed the edges of both the artisans with my HS distresser.Last year everyone over on was talking about this wire tierd basket that came out in the Spring. I do believe last year's was a different color though. So I'd been eyeing this for a bit and wanting it for my stamps, but just felt that at $20 was a bit much. The more I thought of it though, the more I wanted it and I thought I'd better get a move on before they sold out. I remembered seeing a few left at the Crossroad Ts so on Friday, while I was still over at my mom's, Lal and I went and I bought it:) LOVE it!!! All my $ bin stamps fit in here:)AAnd speaking of stamps...I got these in the M's $ bins just this past week. Gina over on had posted a pic of some she had picked up and I just LOVED that little owl. I finally found them. They had quite a few others I didn't get, but they were all really cute. I picked up the owl and cupcake for Lal too;)

So Steve got back home mid-day on Friday, but he pretty much just slept and we let him:) Saturday he took off from work. We went out to breakfast and then took the kids to see Race to Witch Mountain. It was a good movie. I "heart" The Rock;)

After Steve took me to the 911 sale; everything 30% off. Woo hoo!!! The day before they had gotten in some of the new Thickers and I got to grab some:)

I got some of the new Bazzill edges too. I really wanted the black, but just my luck...they were out:( and I didn't get the hot pink ones, but now I'm thinking I should have;)...LOLWent my Ts at the Rim and found the MM Just Chillin' journaling book. It was the ONLY thing from the line they had out and it seems they have lost a whole side of the sb aisle!!! Boo!!! The other goodies are from M's. I am loving those little frames. There are 4 to a pack and this past week the Desinger Corner was 30% off:) And I am so loving that calendar stamp. It reminds me of the new Prima ones that just came out, but for those you have to buy each individual month seperately for $1.99 each. I got this set for 40% off of $6.99 with my coupon;)

Today I am catching up on housework. Just folded and put away a lot of laundry. I still need to "clean" house, but hopefully it shouldn't take me long cause I have about 3 other LO ideas in my head and I don't want to lose the mojo before I get to them.

I have V home sick with me today. She'd been somewhat under the weather since Friday, but yesterday she was complaing a lot about her head hurting and last night she ran a low grade fever. She's been coughing and sneezing like crazy too. Hopefully she'll be better tonight or else I'm keeping her home again and possibly making a trip to the dr's.

Tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day so just in case I don't update before then...Happy St. Patrick's Day to everyone:)

I saw this one the Sassfras blog and thought it was hilarious...
So last week was the big truck drama. My truck was overheating and I could hardly get down the street to drop off the kids before it started hissing under the hood:( So Thursday night a tow truck came and took it away. It was SO sad:( And I guess that saying is true...when it rains it pours. I literally came and sat down at the computer after watching my truck be carried away and it freezes up. Turns out it caught an internet virus and our Norton had expired. Aaahhh!!! So I couldn't get to the store to buy a new antivirus software cause I didn't have any transportation and I couldn't get on the computer. I don't know how I managed...but I did.Fortunately I got my truck back Friday night... $281 later. So Saturday after breakfast I got my Norton and got my computer back up. Yay!!! My uncle's wedding was also that night and I was so afraid I was going to have to miss it if I didn't get my truck back. We have no other form of transportation that fits us all.Here are some pics from the wedding...

Mikey, Mattie and Lij.

All the kids; Victoria, Mikey, Lij and Mattie.

Victoria and Mikey.

Me and Lal. Aren't we lovely??? ;) hee hee The wedding was very nice and the kids had such a blast. V danced the WHOLE night. When the music first started I told her she should go and dance with her daddy and she said she was too embarassed, but as soon as the dance songs started, she went straight to the dance floor and never sat down. LOL

Here's V with Steve.And me and V. My head scarf came out of my hair twice so I just took it out...LOL

Sunday my inlaws took the kids and we took in a movie. Went to go see Watchmen. Steve had been wanting to see that one. Ugh!!! The movie was 2 1/2 hours long and it was not fun:( And it was so cold in there and I forgot to take my jacket. I hate being cold:(

Afterwards, I went by 911 and picked up these goodies...

I'd really been wanting some of the JB gem buttons. I improvised on a LO I recently did where I wanted to use some of these:) And that WRMK paper...they didn't have that one when I picked up the others from that line a while back so now I have it;) LOVE, LOVE this new Comso Cricket line; Ever After. This is the only one of their new lines that really caught my least so far. This one is more my style, I think.And this new My Little Shoebox is just too stinkin' cute!!! I LOVE the shaped papers and the tags. All this I got with my store credit. I still have near $80 left and only $15 to go to hit my free $10 again. Woo hoo!!! Bring on the new goodies;)

So the kids started Spring Break this past Monday. I doubt we are going to do much though. It's hard for Steve to go off from work especially right now. They are closing the company they have in Oklahoma. In fact, he has to drive out there tomorrow to pick up a trailer. This past week he had to drive out to San Angelo. Too much driving:(

So anyway, I did my grocery shopping on Monday. While I was at Walmart I decided to go check out the cameras. They had quite a few on clearance. I saw this one Fuji camera was on sale from $298 to $199, but they were all out except for the display one:( I came home and kept thinking about it, so after lunch I headed to the other Walmart up the street to see if I could find it. I am SO glad I did. It was the only one there. It is 10 megapixels and 18x optical zoom!!! I've played with it a bit and I LOVE it. I still have quite a ways to go, but I'm determined to learn how to use this camera to it's full potential:)

I also got my DCWV 8x8 pad in the mail on Monday. A short time ago there was some kind of promotion. You had to go and watch this video of all the new DCWV pads and be one of the first 1000 and you could chose a free pad and I won one!!! Here's the one I chose...There are glittered and embossed and all sorts of lovely papers in it. Lal chose the Whimsy and we are going to split them:)

Some updated pics of my room. There is just too much stuff in here now. You'd never be able to tell that I purged for the 911 sale back in the end of January.
Eventually I'd like to get those two big bookshelves out of at least minimize what's on them so I can use some of that space to "branch out" onto;) Those two shelves have V's books, some games, DVDs, too many VHS that we are trying to get rid of and stuff like that. Then she has her easel there in the corner. Please ignore that pile of stuff on the floor in front of one of the shelves. I started purging again and got stuck with it. There's all the back issues of my mag subs and tons of stickers I cleared out from my sticker basket. I put up a thread on for locals who might want them. I got 2 responses so I started clearing out and then I didn't hear back and I'm stuck with this stuff on my floor:( Just what I didn't want to happen...sigh...So if anyone local sees this post and is interested PLEASE leave me a message and a contanct email. TIA:)My desk area...

The table next to my desk. I have a little more space since I cleared out my older mags off the table.

A hanging basket over my table which holds a lot of my smaller wood mounted stamps. It's kind of overflowing and I just bought some new ones today:( hee hee The shelf in the back has a bunch of clear jars with different embellies; chipboard letters, tubies of bling, other stuff...not really sure what...LOL Also some of my knick knackie things up there:)

Just a quick little simple LO I did last night. I just can NOT seem to get the mojo back and flowing. It's been SO long:( Anyway, it's a pic I've wanted to scrap forever. Not the most glamour pic. You always see those pics of women who just gave birth holding their newborns and they look like they just stepped out of the salon or something. Well...that was NOT me...LOL But it's still something I wanted to document. I have lots of pics from my hospital stay and those first pics of V we took there so I need to get those done eventually. I got the sketch idea for this from this little paper mache box Lal altered for Miguel for Vday. I just LOVED the little MM quote sticker that she used and knew it would be just PERFECT for such a pic:) I was thinking of maybe adding some type of "title" there above the pic, but not quite sure what. Any idears??? ;)

I made spaghetti for dinner and it was ever so yummy. Then Steve brought me home a Bill's tea and some dutch apple pie for dessert:P Today was the first day I haven't worked out in over a week, but I still might later today;) It's cold here tonight; we cooled down this morning. Also some rain...some much needed rain. We'll see how long that lasts. Oh...yesterday I rented a movie out of the redbox...The Boy in the Striped Pajamas. Excellent movie.

Well, I believe I am all caught up on my happenings around here. I am some dishes in the sink calling my name:( Have a great night:)

Does Anyone Want to Buy My Truck???...

So the darn thing is overheating...again...don't know what it is this time. Steve had come up with something and I talked to Jess and he got me a quote from a friend who said he could do it, but then Steve calls me from his BILs saying it's something else. Of course, he hasn't looked at the truck yet though. So I guess we'll have to wait and see. This truck is giving me a big headache:(

In other news...I got a LO done today...since I can't go anywhere...Both Lal and I lifted the same one off of Here's my version...

I used a sheet from my K&Co. Sweet Talk pad; the red background one. All other papers are various lines of MME; Kaleidoscope, Wild Asapargus, Magnolia, I think. The red letters are some foam ones I got in the Ts $ spot some time ago. Marcella by Kay dimensional flowers and heart and diecut journaling tag. MAMBI glitter title. The little birds I hand cut and embellished:) Also used my HS distresser for the edges of some of the papers. The pic is of V and M the day before Vday:)

Well we'll see how all this truck drama plays out. I really want it fixed by Saturday cause it's my uncle's wedding and I don't want to miss it:(

Monday, March 2, 2009

It's been a while since my last post. I'm still suffering from these darn allergies. I am seriously so tired of it already; the itchy eyes, nose and throat, the water eyes, the sore throat, coughing...Ugh!!! I just want it to be over already:(

I've got a couple of LOs to share and some fun new goodies too:)

Some cute journaling pads I got at J's and one I got at HL (Anna Griffin:)Some of the new EK Success border punches from M's. I got the stamp edge, the tiny scallop dot and the binding edge which gives you the torn out of a notebook look:) Got them all with a coupon too:)One of my recent LOs. A lift off 2Peas. Lal lifted this one too:) I used a lot of K&Co. Que Sera on here; diecuts and acetates and adhesive border. Used one of my MS punch/emboss border punches, some buttons and some adhesive gems in the centers. I think the paper is MME. Can't really remember:(

A FAB gift from my dh who picked these up for me the other day:) I had SO been wanting these super cool new punches. A new die I just picked up. I thought making some paper buttons would be cute:)My latest LO. Lift off of the one Lal did from a Page Map. I did mine on it's side...I think...compared to Lal's:) Paper Studio black grid paper and damask papers, BG Urban Lily; cut out border, Marcella by Kay journaling diecut and dimensional hearts, EK Success Binding Edge border punch and Doodlebug True Love glittered Icons.

Today I Am...For March;)

Reading: Still not reading anything:(

Listening to: Matthew West's "Through The Motions". LOVE this song. Lal and I heard it in the car the other day and I had to come home immediately and look for it and buy it off iTunes:)

Obsessed With: still my weight. This never changes:(

Thinking About: Spring Break next week ALREADY. Why do I feel like the kids were just home on vaca...???

Planning To: get some LOs done this week.

Vowing To: Stick to my workout/diet routine. I MUST lose the weight.

Working On: Purging...just like Lal. I've already started. The other day I went through all my scrap mags and got rid of anything before '08. Last night I went through a cabinet in our master bath and today I did one in our kitchen plus I threw out a bunch of old throw pillows we had on the floor by our fireplace that I'd been hating for a while now. I'm going to try to work on at least one small area a day:)

Excited About: hopefully going to the coast for Spring Break. It isn't the best weather for the beach, but we haven't been in a while and I'm hoping to get some good photo ops;)
