Those Summer Nights Blog Train

Download Wordart here

What a day! I ventured out between rain storms to run some errands. I under estimated the depth of a certain puddle at the post office and had to run the rest of my errands with one soaking wet flip flop and one wet pants leg. I think I'm starting a new fashion trend. LOL!

If you check out April's store at Scrap it Sassy this month you'll save lots of money! Everything is 50% off! How cool is that?

I look forward to the beginning of each month because it brings another blog train from the girls at Stuff to Scrap. This month's blog train is called Those Summer Nights and it is just awesome! You are going to get so many wonderful graphics and papers today and they are all free!

I've got previews of the kits that Deanna and Shel made to share with you. Here's what you'll get when you visit Deanna's blog...

And this is what you'll get when you visit Shel's blog...

Aren't these just awesome?!?! There are many more blogs to visit today so get busy! LOL!

I did have a little time to play around with Shel's part and this is the layout I made...

I'm going to get some sleep now. Enjoy your day!

I was able to get up and make my haircut appointment today. Thank goodness! I have to make sure I don't miss the next one cause I don't like morning appointments. LOL!

We had more rain today. Guess what we're going to have tomorrow? That's right----RAIN.

I got back on the wii tight rope thingy today, but I didn't make it across. Figures, I wouldn't be able to do it two days in a row. LOL! The good news is that I completed all eight levels on the advanced table balance. So, I guess it was a successful day. LOL!

Take a look at this kit called Celebrate by Eva Marina Scraps...

It's a great kit and it's out just in time for the Fourth of July! There are even elements that can be used for Canada Day. The best part about this kit is that it's on sale for only $2.79! Head on over to the store at Stuff to Scrap and pick it up.

Enjoy your day!

I actually made it across the expert level on the tight rope thingy today! I am still excited about it. I also tried the advanced level on the table balance for the first time today. I made it to level six. I'm not so excited about that, but I must admit it's better than I did the very first time I tried the beginning level. LOL!

This evening I was in desperate need of some aspirin, Tylenol, Advil or anything really and I had nothing. I paid my neighbor a visit and she didn't have any either. However, she did have some tequila! After we split a pitcher of margaritas I didn't have a headache anymore. Or maybe I did and just didn't care anymore. LOL!

I'm going to bed now, because I have to get up in the morning and remember to get my hair cut since I missed Friday's appointment. Wish me luck and enjoy your day!

Where did the day go?

Download wordart here

So, I was messing around doing things today and then the next thing I knew it was 5:00 PM and I still hadn't showered. LOL! Why do the summer days go by so quickly?

I need some help from a wii fit expert! I have this thing about not moving up a level on any of the things until I've earned four stars at least ten times. I figure if I haven't mastered the beginners level there's no use even trying the advanced or expert levels. Well, last week I finally moved to the expert level on the tight rope walking thingy. Do you know the one I'm talking about? Well, I haven't made it across one time since I moved to the expert level. Please, someone tell me the secret to getting across this thing! It's making me crazy! LOL!

Time for me to get some sleep. Enjoy your day!

What day is it?

Download wordart here

I have gotten so bad since I've been on vacation! I got a phone call from the girl that cuts my hair saying that I was late for my appointment and wondering if I was still going to come or if I needed to reschedule. I laughed and said that I thought my appointment was on Friday. She informed me that it was Friday. LOL! Needless to say, I've rescheduled the appointment for next week.

My computer and I have had a much better time lately. I think we like each other again. LOL! Lets just hope this truce lasts for a long time.

We've had lots more rain and I am getting so tired of it. Looks like we're in for a rainy weekend too. Guess I'll be taking plenty of naps. LOL!

April has finished her Positively Paisley Kit and it's in her store at Scrap it Sassy. I just can't believe how big this kit is and for only $5.99 you are really getting your money's worth! Just take a look at this preview...

Enjoy your day!

Good Grief!

My poor computer has been giving me problems for awhile now. I was on the phone for the longest time tonight with one of the nice tech guys in India. He told me that I really needed a new computer. I got worried, thinking that there must be something really bad wrong and asked why I needed a new one. His answer was, "Because you bought this one in 2006." LOL! That was the only reason! If only I were rich.....

I did update my virus protection and it took 3 online chats with someone from Norton in about three hours to get it working correctly. Let's hope it's still working after I turn the computer back on in the morning!

Did you watch The Philanthropist? I TIVOed it the other night and watched it tonight. I really liked it! If you missed it, try catching it online this was the first episode. Entertainment Weekly gave it a B+ rating if that means anything to you. LOL!

I'm really tired, so I'm going to cross my fingers turn my computer off, go to bed and hope that everything still works correctly in the morning.

Enjoy your day!

More bad weather

Download wordart here

Well, the storm that woke me up yesterday brought a big mess to town. More flooded streets and power outages. I never lost power, but thousands of people in Dade County did. More rain came through in the afternoon, but it wasn't as bad as the earlier rain storm. The good news is that it didn't get quite as hot today as it has been getting. Of course the other good news is that I slept.....A LOT! LOL!

Just look at this adorable QP April is giving away on her blog!

Aren't the colors just the cutest? This QP is from a kit she's going to be releasing soon and I just can't wait!

Enjoy your day!

I didn't do as much dreamin' last night as I would have liked. I stayed up way too late and thanks to another thunder storm I was up way too early. Can you spell naptime? LOL!

I wanted to share a new and improved kit by Nicole at Stuff to Scrap. It's called Dreamin and is an amazing kit! She has revamped it and added more papers and elements. Just check out this preview...

Orlando is only a three hour drive away and we make that trip several times a year. I've got tons of pictures from those trips that I haven't done anything with, but this kit is just what I've been looking for. I know it will be perfect for your Disney trips too and at only $3.99 it's an awesome buy too!

What are you waiting on? Head on over to Stuff to Scrap!

Mint Chocolate

Today Deanna is adding a beautiful kit called Mint Chocolate to her store at Stuff To Scrap. It's full of some amazing brown and green elements and papers. It's also on sell for 30% off! Just check out this preview...

I've been trying to improve my extraction skills lately. If anyone has any shortcuts to offer I'd love to hear them! Anyway, I really had fun playing with this kit. Here are the two layouts I made...

I gave away the wordart I used on the second layout a few months ago. If you would like it you can pick it up here.

Happy Father's Day!

Download wordart here

I attended a Father's Day cookout today. The 6 year old son of the family that was hosting said a very special and very long blessing for us that ended with, "Mom said we had to be thankful for Dad today, but tomorrow we can go back to being ourselves." I have never laughed so hard!

I'm going to get some sleep now. Enjoy your day!

Today was an extra quiet day for me. I woke up, worked out on the wii fit, played on the computer, took a nap, played on the computer, read, ate some ice cream and now I'm playing on the computer again. We were going to go out for a boat ride but the clouds were moving in and no one wanted to get caught in a storm.

I played around with April's Over the Hill kit even though I couldn't find the pictures I wanted. This is a picture of my friend, Betty, taken right before she realized that we had a surprise luncheon planned for her birthday.

Have you checked out the Stuff to Scrap store lately? There are so many wonderful kits by so many wonderful artists! Here's one of my favorites by The Scrappy Kat...

Isn't this kit just adorable? You could use today's wordart with this kit to make an awesome layout! You can buy this kit here.

Enjoy your day!

Wouldn't you just know it!

Download wordart here

So, after baking those Nestles cookies and eating them for the last two days I find out that they've been recalled. See, this is why I don't cook! This is why I should just stay boring! LOL!

I baked the cookies and I haven't gotten sick yet so I'm sure I'm OK. Even if I do get sick they tasted so good that it was totally worth it! LOL! However, the next time I want cookies.....it's back to the bakery for me! LOL!

If you haven't heard about the recall yet you can read about it here.

The guys went fishing today and came home with lots of goodies so we all got together and had a grilled fish dinner. Orange Croc Guy was in charge of the grill and he's a much better cook than I am! I offered to bring what was left of the cookies I baked but no one was interested. They said that they wouldn't even eat them if the dough hadn't been recalled. LOL! I've got such loving and supportive friends.

I reached a milestone on the wii fit today. My piggy bank turned GOLD! That means I've finally worked out for more than 40 hours. YIPPEE! I was going to celebrate with a cookie, but Nestles ruined that for me. LOL!

To go along with the bad news from Nestles I decided to add a countdown to the first day of school at the bottom this page. YUCK! Why can't I be rich?!?! Why can't summer vacation last forever?!?! LOL!

I'm going to bed now. Enjoy your day!

Back to being boring

Download wordart here

After all the excitement (Cough, Cough) I had yesterday I had to rest up today. I actually slept until 10:30 and I only got up then because the phone rang. The call was a recorded message from my principal letting us know that our school was given a grade of "A" by the state. YIPPEE! We've been an "A" school in the past, but last year it dropped to a "B". Needless to say, we're all happy today!

Since I slept so late today, I'm wide awake now. So, I'm going to go crawl in bed and read for awhile. Hopefully, I'll fall to sleep soon. Enjoy your day!

I tried not to be boring today

Download wordart here

I tried not to be boring today, but I'm not sure I succeeded. LOL! It was hard to sleep last night because a bad lightning storm came through and I hate lightning storms. I couldn't really hear the thunder because the storm windows pretty much block the sound, but even with the blinds closed and curtains the room was lighting up from the lightning. I know---I'm a baby!

When I got on the wii fit today I finally changed the Super Hula Hoop from 6 minutes to 10. I hate the super Hula Hoop so that's a big deal. I even earned 4 stars! YEA!

I managed to bake some cookies today without setting off any smoke alarms. OK, so they were the Nestles that you only have to break apart and bake, but I still did it all by myself!

I walked to the post office and mailed a package. Then I came home and rested up from all the exciting things I did today. LOL!

I'll probably still be resting tomorrow too. LOL! Now I'm going to get some sleep. Enjoy your day!

Fun in the Sun SOE

I got a phone call today from a friend of mine in NC who wanted to know why my blog has been so boring lately. LOL! After I finished laughing at her, I explained that if she were reading it everyday she would know that it's been boring because I've been boring. It's hard to make lying around doing nothing all day sound exciting. It's boring, but it sure is fun! LOL!

Today I'm giving you the candy bar wrapper I made with Shel's Summer Sun kit. I left the back blank so you can put your own information or saying. Here's what it looks like...

I'm going to bed now, but I promise to try and be more exciting....tomorrow. LOL! Enjoy your day.

I did something today!

I actually did something today! I cleaned out a closet that REALLY needed to be cleaned out. I threw out some things and have some things bagged up to take to Goodwill. Aren't you proud of me? Now I can open that closet door and not worry that something is going to fall on my head. LOL!

I wanted to share another layout I made using Deanna's portion of the Beach House kit...

Make sure you visit Deanna's blog again today for another part of this awesome kit. Then go visit Nicole's blog to pick up her goodies.

Shel has also posted another part of her Summer Sun kit for you to pick up. Here's another LO I made with her awesome kit...

If you come back tomorrow I'm giving you a candy bar wrapper I made with this kit. It's perfect to use as an invitation for a summer pool party or to give as a thank you to someone that invited you to a summer party.

April has posted another QP freebie on her blog. She made a 40 and Fabulous QP using her Over the Hill kit. As soon as I find some of the pictures we took of my friend Betty I'm going to use this kit and make a LO for her. LOL!

Now, I'm going to get some sleep. I'm tired from all that cleaning I did today. LOL! Enjoy your day!

Beach House

Well, I told you I would come up with some lame excuse for not cleaning today, but I don't have one. I still didn't clean. I just don't have an excuse. LOL!

Deanna and Nicole teamed up to make a great kit called Beach House. You can pick up the first parts on each of their blogs today.

Here's what you'll get from Deanna...

Deanna also posted a super cute QP she made with her I Scream You Scream Kit. So make sure you pick that up too!

Here's what you'll get when you visit Nicole...

I played around with both sets and made this LO...

Did you remember to visit Shel's blog for today's part of Summer Sun? Here's one of the layouts I made with the kit...

April is really on a roll with her birthday theme! Now she has added an Over the Hill kit to her store at Scrap it Sassy. Isn't this the funniest?!?!

Summer Sun

Download wordart here

Well, I tried to not be so lazy today, but it didn't work out. I had every intention of giving my house a good summer cleaning, but I really HATE cleaning. So, when I got the chance to go shopping and out to lunch I took it. Can you blame me?!? LOL!

Then when I got home there was a marathon of last season's Army Wives on and I wasn't sure if I had missed an episode or not so I decided I should watch just to be safe. Well, I had seen all of them but better safe then sorry! LOL!

When it comes to cleaning....there's always tomorrow. Oh who am I kidding, I'll make up some other lame excuse not to do it tomorrow. LOL!

Today Shel Belle Scraps is releasing a great summer kit called Summer Sun. It's just too cute! Take a look at this...

I can't remember if I shared these layouts that I made with Carol's Aloha Kit or not so I'm going to show them to you now. Sorry if you've already seen them!

I've had so much fun with this kit! Here's the preview...

You can pick Aloha up at Moo Two Designs or at Cool Scraps Digital and it's on sale now too.

April added the girl version of her birthday kit to her store at Scrap It Sassy. It's full of pinks and purples and just screams little girl! Here's the preview for you to see...

She was also kind enough to make a freebie QP using the kit and it's on her blog now, but you've got to go pick it up before she takes it down so go check it out!

I'm so lazy!

Download wordart here

If there is an award for the world's laziest person, I think I deserve it this week! My days have consisted of sleeping until I wake up, going out to the pool, working out on the wii fit, taking a shower, playing on the computer, then hitting the couch to rest after my long hard day. LOL! I'm serious! I've only been on summer vacation for a week so I'll probably get even lazier as time goes by.

I can tell you that April hasn't been lazy. She has added a new Birthday Boy Kit to her store at Scrap it Sassy and it is full of goodies! Here's a preview of the kit...

If you visit April's blog you'll be able to pick up a great QP she made with this kit, but you better be quick because I think it's only up for a limited time.

I used the kit to make a LO today....

CactusFreek reminded me that I needed to start counting down to the release of New Moon, so I went looking for a widget. I've added one to the bottom of this page. The one I really wanted wasn't playing nice, but I like this one too.

My friend Betty, is the only person I know that hasn't read the Twilight series and we keep telling her that we'll be going to the movies without her in November if she doesn't get busy reading! She says that she feels like she has already read the books because she's heard us talking about them so much. She kind of has a point, but it's not the same!

I do plan on doing a New Moon quote of the day as a countdown to the movie release. So stay tuned for that, November will be here before you know it!

I'm going to bed now. Enjoy your day!
