Finally a day to relax!

Wow I can't believe I finally have a day to relax and do what I want to do!!! I feel like March is always such a whirlwind month. This year especially since I missed most of February due to the kidney stone. Glad to report I am back to normal and no signs of any future stones. Just gotta remember to drink lots of water, so I am on a 90 ounce a day regimen. I know that is a lot of water, but it has really been good for me. The other thing that has happened is I am not drinking sweet tea anymore...oh how I miss my dear friend!!! I have always loved sweet tea, but I want to make sure I never get a kidney stone again so I have bid farewell to sweet tea. I will only have it on the rare special occasion, but no more making a gallon to have at home anymore. It is just too tempting!I have not been taking too many photos lately, not sure why but I think it has something to do with feeling very overwhelmed with the 22,000 that I have on my computer now! Since I am a scrapbooker I feel compelled to take photos but do not have the time to scrap them all! Plus there are tons of photos that probably should be deleted all together. I don't seem to have the time for that though. One of my many projects for any day...

I did manage to go shopping with my daughter this weekend and pick out a dress for her spring
formal. Here is a photo.
The original plan was to make a dress that we had purchased the pattern and fabric for last year. But we were in a bit of a time crunch, the formal is in less than 2 weeks! Yikes! So I opted for going out shopping to see what we could find. Glad we found this one and it was a steal! We spent more on the jewelry for the dress then the dress itself! Can't wait to see her in the dress and her hair and make up pretty and exciting! I am also glad that I will have the day off since the formal is on a Friday so I can be there with her spending the day together getting her ready to go! The bonus is she has a new boyfriend that she will be taking to the formal and he is a really nice guy, finally she found someone to treat her right!!

I gotta get on with my "do what I want to do" day!

Harry Potter Birthday

It was a blast! My son had the best 12th birthday ever! That is what he told me, anyway! All the hard work and exhaustion paid off! Here are a few photos highlighting the event.

I am not sure I can top this birthday unless I go broke! This will probably be the last big party we do before his sweet sixteen! That is only 4 years away! Yikes! Better start planning now! I have a busy day ahead of me, gotta make cupcakes for the baby shower I am hosting tonight and the weather is really cold and rainy today. That after a 75 degree sunny day is depressing!

Baby shower fun!

Hello friends! I have been busy since I am back to my normal routine. So busy that I have almost forgotten about posting all my latest and greatest crafty items! For the past 2 weeks I have been working on a friends baby shower decor. I am so excited that my friend Julia and Matt are adopting a baby from china. I wanted to make sure and give her a shower she will never forget. Below is 2 collages of some of the items I have been working on for the shower. I really hope she likes it as much as I have liked creating all the fun items!

I will be back later this week to show you all the fun items I have been creating for my son's birthday party! It is Harry Potter themed! I have never really gotten into that crazy movie or books so now is the time to learn everything I can!!! I only have a couple of days to finish all the million candles I have to make to hang from the ceiling, yikes!
