The promised photos!

As I mentioned yesterday, we have been keeping busy so far this summer. Here is a little of what we have been up to.

The kids helping with all the cleaning i have been doing. Getting the house cleaned up and caught up has been a goal of mine these last few weeks, and we have been doing pretty well.

Elijah eating his first ice cream cone- in celebration of my birthday. :)
We spent a Saturday afternoon at the Potholes. The kids enjoyed the hiking, but their favorite part was throwing rocks in the water.
We celebrated Nichole's 15th birthday a little late, but we had pizza at the park, and it was fun to see her again.

Thanks for stopping by!

Lots of pics!

Sorry I haven't been updating more recently. I am a bad blogger sometimes. The good news is that we have been really busy and I have lots of photos to share (watch for tomorrow's post!)!

First, though, a reminder to visit the Scrap N' Art blog! There have been some fabulous posts this week, and Lea's challenges are very inspiring. There are even prizes and giveaways to be had, so what are you waiting for?

Also, the ScrapDango June reveal was yesterday! The Sugar kit features Scenic Route, and was my fav kit so far. Here are a few of my projects:

Head to to see the entire kits and the whole reveal from both the sugar and Spice kits. :)

It's coming!

Some of you who are on forums with me know that I haven't bought a single scrappy item since the middle of March. Yes, that's right, March. I went on a big shopping trip then, and spent 3 months budget, so I wasn't able to shop again until my Birthday... which is... Sunday!!

I don't know when I have last been this excited about my birthday. Trust me, I am not excited about turning 28 (for the first time, honest!), but I am very excited about breaking my spending freeze. What to buy first... hmmm...

Here is what is on my must-have list thus far:

BasicGrey's new June Bug Collection
Prima bling (duh!)
Tulip Puffy paint in more colors
Thickers (of Course!)

I am looking for things to add to the list... so let me know what's on your list so I can grow mine. ;)
