new layouts

i haven't scrapped much lately. i really want to start paper scrapping again. i do project life and could easily turn that into more than what i do but i don't know. i like the simplicity of it and if i do that then it takes that away. i went to twopeas and looked around at new stuff. put stuff in my bucket and then looked at the price....holy moly! i don't know if want to pay those prices again. that's what i love about digital, good prices and you can use them over and over. but then there is something about paper and adhesive and...sigh....what to do.

so here are some recently done layouts:

maybe i'll make some more layouts????

this and that

things have been going good lately. for the first time in a very long time i actually say that i love my job and i really do! i love decorating. i love being able to order what i think would sell. i love it all really. the only thing that is bothering me in my hand. i don't know if it is my tendons getting use to the squeezing or what, but it has been sore. some days are ok some days they hurt bad. well, it's just my right hand. the last few days there has been numbness and tingling at the top of my thumb and index finger. i really do think it is getting use to all of this. i am doing to my dr on wednesday to get his opinion. i haven't been doing it that long for it to be serious, so i hope. i started decorating off and on in january but full-time a few weeks ago. when i would decorate off and on and used hard icing, that is why my hand would hurt. and it would go away. so i really do think it is my hand getting used to things. it better be because i can't afford to lose the full-time now that i have it. so pray my hand gets better and there will be nothing wrong.

a few pictures from last week. i really want to blog more. lots of words floating through my head....

this kid loves to play "ghost." so glad he isn't afraid lol

we drive around in the evening to cool off. got some great sunset pictures!

  love the retro look on this one. edited in instagram.

went to the park when it was somewhat cool. must get him outside to play, makes bedtime easier when he is worn out lol

at the end of last week liam started get a cough. no fevers till one day it was 101. so off to the dr. coughs and especially fevers make me a bit nervous. after last year.... anyways, here he is in the car. fell asleep while we drove around to find him some cough syrup.
he's all better now. after some cough syrup and antibiotics, he's good. he has a sinus infection. poor kid....think he has my sinus issues.

that's about it for today. more tomorrow and hopefully the next!

this week in photos

i really need to do this more often but i haven't really been too creative lately. it's the heat. it melts my brain lol.

last monday i had my first mammogram. i took a number and three came out (and i said one for me and one for each of the girls....hahah) and registered. a lot of things go through your head when it's your first time. "will it hurt? what if they see something. what will i do if they see something." i think that is normal. your first time, what are you suppose to think? i know, positive thoughts. i'm just not that type of person. i head back to the radiation waiting room. filled out a couple of papers and waited. the tech was super nice and funny. made me feel relaxed. i put on my superwoman cape and waited for her return.

this looks scary. your going too smash what???? trust me, it wasn't bad at all. some discomfort and that was about it. i told her "this was totally not what i expected. it wasn't bad at all." she went on to say that it is like childbirth, no two births are the same. some are in bad pain, some a piece of cake. so, don't be afraid to get checked because you think there will be pain. if there is for you it last maybe 5-6 seconds. it's worth it to safe your life, right? i thought so. :)

afterwards we went for lunch at "the corner bistro." they are only open for lunch. they have this amazing salad bar. is heaven. i thought "Sweet Greens" was good but i think they kind put them to shame. love, love, love this place. and if you have tea it is free!!! score!

we got liam a new pool. it is so much bigger than the one he had. he loves it!

on the 10th of every month we have cake for the associates that have an anniversary that month. this is my month. on the 28th i will be there 4 years. with all the crazy times there the "you did it" on the graduation plate was totally right. how do some make it 10, 15, 30 years????

this week we got to meet brooklyn, matt and megan's daughter, my great niece! we were all so excited to meet her. oh my gosh she's so darn cute!!! we all got together at mom and dad's to meet her. stacy brought daisie so they could meet each other, they are only a few  months apart. it was a very happy time. when we all get together like that i am so happy and proud to be a mom and have liam there. all those years i wanted a child on the holidays we got together. this was super special that one of the grandkids was mine! makes me so friggin happy!!!!!

liam loves his cousin matt! he would hardly leave him alone. friday we went to megan's mom and dad's to see them. liam had a blast. when i said "want to go to grandma and grandpa's to see matt?" "matt." "what to see megan?" "matt." buds!

my dad set up this sprinkler that my uncle made. liam was a little hesitant at first but once he got wet and started to see that it was fun, he loved it. he is a water kid i tell ya!

had to follow daddy. now back to the sprinklers!

that is about it. :)
