Do you know your Enemy

Tomorrow I go get my hair done...Yay! My daughter Raven is also getting her hair done. She is very excited. I will do the video blog tmw and post it sometime in the next few days. Even if my hair turns out terrible I will still post it lol!

Working on some pages for pmp right now. I'll be down there the 29th for a crop. If you are in the area come and see me. I may not do much scrappin but I will do a lot of blah blah blah lol!

Here are some more things I have done the past week or so.

Our Tea party album. If you want to see all the finished pages I posted them at sis.

My silly boy Aeden.

Circus pics. I have been trying to use up my stash and those film strips I have had for like 3 years lol! They work.

Watched a few movies.

Anvil- the story of Anvil~ Not bad. I feel really sad for these guys. I am glad that finally something is happening for them they totally deserve it.

Sex and death 101~ Again not bad.

Tale of despereaux~ Very cute!

A few movies that are on TV right now.

Population 436~ I liked it. Not great but totally worth watching.

The Abandoned~ strange.

Little Shop of horrors~ I haven't seen this movie since I was 10. I DVR'ed it for my kids and they loved it! Great movie.

I watched the season finale of lost and survivor...ACK! Ok lost man that was good. I am sooo sad it is ending next year. I knew it was but I had thought maybe just maybe they wouldn't end it. Boo! Survivor...Yay JT! I am glad he won although very sad they didn't take taj to the end. She def didn't need to win but still it would've been nice to keep their word. Coach is a piece of work. WOW! HAHA I can say he made me laugh.

Camping trips are being planned. Kids will be out of school next week and we have only 2 months to do stuff. I hope to have some good times with them this year. I am thinking of doing a talent show in our back yard. I think they kids would get a kick out of it. Thanks Danielle for the idea.

Our garden is coming along nicely.

Our first radishes.

We have some squash.



Figs on our fig tree.

I am so proud of our little garden. I wish it was a bit bigger with more stuff in it lol! Maybe next year.

I am hoping to rip out the carpet sometime soon. Just got to build up some motivation.

My husband is so sweet. He brought me some gladiolas the other day. Just because he loves me. He is a wonderful husband.

Almost all flowers remind me of my grandmother. She gave me my passion for gardening and I love her to bits. That pic is of here way back when.

Well it has been pretty hot here. We did go swimming and we are going over for a memorial day bbq on Monday. I hope you all have a nice cool holiday!

Oh little sister you and me can rise above

How was your Mother's day? Mine was beautiful. Husband bought me some roses(above) and we picked out some clothes.I found these oh so cute cardigans at target for only 15 each. I had to get them. I didn't take a pic of me wearing it and right now I am in my pj's with no hope of changing lol! This pic will have to do.

Aren't they adorable? They had a grey one but only in a small and xsmall. Yeah so not gonna fit lol!

I have been a scrappin fool lately! I must've found my mojo or something. So glad it is finally back. Wanna see some things I have done?

Tattoo session. This was for the boys day out and they all got fake tattoos. I love those pictures.

My hubby and myself on our anniversary. We went to the movies and they have a photo booth. Love taking pics in those things. Did these 2 at nsd.

My son Aeden came up to me about a week ago and said Look mom I can make a heart with my hands. I had to take a pic and of course scrap it.

Another one of those photo booth pics. The heart was made by Nikki Peterson. On nsd she did a project and cut that heart out. She threw it to me and said here. Loved it so much that I had to come home and use it right away. Thanks Nikki!

My daughter Raven at our tea party.

I started the JM 30 day shred. I am on my 4Th day. Kicks my butt! I am hoping to be more toned and lose some more weight in the days to come. As I have said before my one year (surgery date) is coming up June 6Th and I am no where near where I had hoped to be. I have about 40 pounds to lose to get to my goal. As the months go by the weight gets harder and harder to lose. I am not giving up tho.

I took a trip to the thrift store yesterday. Dropped off some clothes my kids don't wear and found the boys some swim shorts. I think we will be headed to my mom's house this weekend for a swim. I hear it is suppose to be summer weather. Mom if you are reading this uhh we are coming over lol! I found these slippers there. Brand new had the tags on and everything. I was eyeing them at target when they had them but just didn't break down and buy them. I couldn't pass them up at only 4 bucks!

I ♥ slippers.

And look at this cute handmade hair bib. My mom usually cuts the boys hair for me and I thought this was perfect for those times. Only 1.00!

I was so inspired by Jen and her video blog and how vulnerable she let herself be that I decided in the next few weeks I too will be doing a video blog. I am sure I wont sound the way you all think I do because I know I had a voice for Jen and when she spoke it wasn't the voice I had in my head lol! DUH! I go get my hair done the 23rd. I cant wait! I think after I get my hair done is when I will do the video blog. I'll do a before and after.

Well that is about all I have to share for now. I am off to lovely moments like this.

(Hubby teaching Rowan to play guitar)

Have a wonderful day!

Close your eyes and it's passed...story of my life

Happy Late NSD and Happy Cinco De Mayo! What did you all do? Any scrappin done? I know that sat was officially nsd but I went to the movies with my hubby that day. Actually I had a fun filled weekend. Friday I took my hubs out and we decided to stop by Fat's bar and grill here in Stockton and he got up and sang me a song...Billy Joel "Just the way you are"...So sweet. Then on sat we went and saw the soloist. I really really wanted to see X men but he hasnt seen any of them and I did want to see the soloist too. He ended up feeling bad and agreed to take me on Sunday to see X men after I got back from NSD. The soloist was very good. I didn't cry like I thought I would but still it was good. Last but not least I got up at 630 am Sunday and packed my junk up for a scrap filled day over at PMP on Sunday.

I should have took more pics but I just was feeling so blah. In fact we named our table the un-motivated because none of us felt like doing much of anything lol! It was so nice to see my girls tho. Kerry Lynn and Nikki are such a breath of fresh air. Love hanging out with them. We laughed, we bitched, we ate...Good times!

There was a game played with some of the girls bra's yeah that's right bra's.I kept mine on thank you very much lol! Wish I woulda thought to grab the camera then tho. To funny.

I did manage to get 2 pages done! WOOT! That is a miracle for me. I don't scrap well at crops. I will share them soon.

I just posted the new Mojo...Here is my take.

I said I would share my projects from PMP and here those are.

My fav out of all the pages. It was so fun to take those pics and I have to laugh at how funny I look. My husband and kids love it and you can bet you will see pics of them wearing these mustaches.

My sister Tiffany.

My daughters Raven and Aria.

Father's day card using the hambly stashes.

Hmm I think that is about all. Oh I have lost 140 lbs! I have about 40 more to go to get to my goal but I will be happy with 35 more lol! I am really gonna step it up for may because my 1 year is in June.

I am off to watch some movies with hubby. Have a wonderful week!
