After our very busy long weekend, I got a nice little break today. I got to sleep in until like a little after 9am. Steve went and got us breakfast. I got a few house chores done; put some laundry away, made the beds, took out trash and straightened up a bit.

I vowed I would NOT leave the house today. Steve wanted to go to Lowe's or Home Depot...can't remember which one, so he went alone...well, he took V with him and I got a nice little break. I got some scrapping done; 3 LOs!!!

Lift off of 2Peas. In the LO they used some BG doilie paper, but I improvised and cut out some Crate Providence. I really like the way it turned out. Embellies: K&Co. Berry Sweet diecut, flower cut out of some BG June Bug pp, JB journaling spot, Carolyn Gavin diecut bird and butterfly, 7Gypsies cardstock stickers, Circus Rose card pp, Cricut cut sun shape, scalloped circle punch and AC Puffy Thickers number.

Using more of the Cosmo Cricket Early Bird line here. SO LOVING this line!!! Another lift off 2Peas...Bazzill Dotted Swiss, Cosmo Cricket Early Bird pp, Paper Studio music pp, AC Puffy Thickers, HS chip heart. This was also my first try at making some of those little pinwheel embellies. They are VERY easy to make and took no time at all. The centers are brads. Also used some MM Chole's Closet trim and I machine stitched the border on this one.

Another 2Peas lift and still more Cosmo Cricket Early Bird...October Afternoon pp, Cosmo Cricket spinner card, AC Puffy Thickers, MM tiny alphas, HS chip hearts, bakers twine.

Steve also went and gassed up and washed my truck AND did my grocery shopping for this week for me. He totally scored some points today:)

This is a LO I got done last week, but hadn't uploaded...

Pic of V and Laney at Laney's pool birthday party. More Early Bird, some Kraft paper, MS daisies and some AC Puffy Thickers. I hand stitched on this one too:)

So we had a busy, filled, long weekend. Steve was off since Friday. We took off early to Fiesta Texas. We got there about 11am. Boy, was it HOT!!! The water park opens at noon so we wanted to be there before so we could get a good spot in the shade by the water. We waited in line for about 30 minutes and weren't too far behind in line. We got an excellent spot. We were out there until like 4pm.

I don't think Steve put sunscreen on V's face and she was really red at the end of the day:( I put some aloe gel on her after she bathed and gave her some Tylenol. She's much better now:)

So we had dinner at Bill's on the way home and then came home, showered and relaxed. We were all exhausted.

Saturday we said no "outdoor" activities. We got up early, went for breakfast and then took the kids to the first showing of Ice Age at Huebner. It was really funny. We did some shopping afterwards. Oh!!! Have to insert here. I did birthday shopping for Mattie on Friday and got some AWESOME deals for some back to school clothes. I found jeans that were $24.99 for only $6.24!!! I got him 5 pairs. Then I found those cool graphic t's from $12.99 were only $3.24!!! I got him six. So I've got a good start on the school shopping. Yay for me!!!

Yeah, so Saturday I went by 911 (had just been there two days before too;) and then by Scrapbook Cottage, Hobby Lobby, a couple of Targets. Went to lunch and then took in the afternoon show of My Sister's Keeper. Excellent movie. I just finished reading the book last week. Definately a MUST SEE.

I did some other scrap shopping last week, but I'm too lazy to upload all the pics, but I found some AC paper packs at BL for only $8. I got Metropolitan and A La Carte, but I also saw Play. I REALLY want Amplified or Moda Bella. They had some really cool AC stickers too for only $1.

I'm going to upload some 4th pics on a seperate post. Being lazy again:) So to be continued...
