More LOs and Germs...

Saturday we spent the day over at my mom's. We just hung out and the kids played. Lal scrapped and I kind of put some things together. I didn't have a whole lot of time in the morning to get stuff together, so I just did a little work on some LOs, but didn't complete anything. Lal did. I took some of my new Sizzix dies and my Big Kick and I did some cuts for Lal. The kids played Candy Bingo, which they LOVED!!! I ran a quick errand and brought the kids back McDonald's for lunch.

In the afternoon, V started complaining that she didn't feel well and that her throat hurt. She didn't look very well either. She felt warm and looked flushed. We came home and I gave her some Ibuprofen. As soon as it kicked in, she perked up. We went out to eat and ran a couple of errands; I went by 911 and picked up some new goodies. I got the new Comso Cricket Nutmeg line. LOVE it!!! Went by M's and HL, then came back home.

She ran more fever through the night. We stayed home all day Sunday cause she was not well. Last night she ran a lot of fever and I just couldn't bring it down. Pretty scary stuff. It finally broek this morning. We took her in the doctor this am though; double ear and throat infection. I am just ever thankful that it was not the swin flu or something else. She is on antibiotics and out of school for the week. On the road to recovery though, so that's good:)

Since we were home all day yesterday, I got to work on my LOs I started at my mom's. Here are the finished products...

Lift off 2Peas. Used up Early Bird scraps. The green pp is Carolyn Gavin and the brown I made using kraft and woodgrain rubber stamp. AC puffy Thickers, MM Puffy alphas and tiny alphas and an HS chip heart. I also machine stitched a border along both of the scrap strips.

Lift off April Yap. MM pp, Tim Holtz Addage tickets, Prima felt flowers, JB bingo card, MM Just Chillin' journaling sheet, 7 Gypsies cardstock stickers. The house is cut out of a sheet of Recollections fall paper. Vine is Sizzix cut; one of my new Bigz dies;)

In these pics V was about 4 or 5 years old. This was a playgroup date; Super Hero day at the park. She dressed up as Bat Girl. Papers are all Pink Paislee Twilight. Prima flowers, adhesive gems, Recollections diecuts, MM journal tag and Doodlebug Shindig alpha stickers.

Tomorrow is cleaning day since the kids were off for Columbus Day today and we had to run V to the doctor and all. Wednesday I have my appointment with OAG. Praying for the best:) Hope everyone enjoys the rest of their evening.

Where the Wild Things Are...

So I'd really been wanting for Mikey to dress up as Max from Where the Wild Things are for Halloween; with the movie coming out and all. Of course there aren't any costumes in the stores. I looked online and found some really pricey ones, but I also found some ideas on how people made their own. This got me thinking, so I talked to Steve and we decided we'd make one ourselves:) We went to J's and found a pattern we could work with and we got a super deal on the fabric too. The weekend V was sick, we stayed home so we spent that Sunday sewing Mikey's costume. This is how it turned out. Of course, it doesn't fit V very well. She's quite a bit taller than Mikey...

I took it to Mikey last Friday when I went by my mom's and he loved it. It made me so happy:) and he looked super adorable in it...I'm not just saying that cause he's my nephew and we made the costume and all;) I gotta have Lal take some pics of him in it.

V is going to be a Skelanimal Kitty. We bought it at Target. She's modeling it in one of my recent LOs in my last post. Mattie is going to be the king from Burger King. It's hilarious. TFL

120 LOs!!! Photo HEAVY;)

I've gotten quite a few LOs done since my last post. Some of these were done during a mini palooza that Lal and I had. I think I got like 4 or 5 done that day. Can't quite recall. The rest I've gotten done since then; here and there. So here they all are. I'm too lazy to list all my product and such for every single LO I have here, so if anyone has any questions, just leave me a comment:)

In other news, I had V home sick week before last. She was home for 2 days. She had ran a low grade fever for a day, but then she was super congested and coughing so I kept her home. A few days after she went back to school, I came down with it. I'm going on a week now. I started to feel some improvement and then I woke up yesteday feeling worse. Today was a better though, so here's praying it doesn't last much longer.

For the last week and a half I have been dieting and so far I have lost 8lbs. I'm hoping to get to 10 by the end of the week. I am setting short term goals to keep me motivated. Setting my weight loss in 10lbs increments.

We finally got our gym membership transfered to the new gym right by our house, so starting Monday, I'm hitting the gym. Hopefully this will help me with the whole weight thing; give me a little boost;)

Today I did a little yard work. All the rain we'd had really got the grass growing. Or should I say weeds. I went out there and pulled out quite a bit, then just mowed. The yard REALLY needs some work. Hopefully once the weather cools down more consistenly, I can work on the yard more.

Not much else going on least not that I can think of at the moment. I'll be back to update with another post later today to get caught up. I think this post is photo heavy enough;)
