Okay, I had to post this photo because it's just too funny. While making dinner tonight, Rex came running into the scrapbook room, grabbed the camera and left. This was the resulting photo. I think he has started to think like a scrapbooker.....just don't tell him I said that.

Taking Time for Me

Today when I got home from work I decided that I was just going to take time for me. I meant to do the laundry, I meant to organize a few things, I meant to get some work done around the house, but instead I sat down next to Rex in the scrapbooking room (he was creating a musical masterpiece on the computer) and just scrapped. I finished my fall tin album, I finished my handmade journey album and I started a Christmas organizer. I feel good!

So, how did I do?

Well, I'm actually pretty proud of myself!  

1.  I played and played with the new laptop
2.  Still happy about the cars :)
3.  Wrote up the first couple of writing lessons for this week
4.  Read my HOME COMPANION from cover to cover
5.  Edited a couple hundred more vacation photos
6.  Rex sailed through his first couple of days at work
7. The jambalaya, hot apple pie and time with friends was outstanding!

**Unfortunately, I never got to scrapbooking this weekend** Oh well, there's always tomorrow!

Enjoy your last day of summer!

This one's for you Teach!  Just a little happy frog to usher out the last day of summer.  It was a great (yet way too fast) summer once again.

New Toy!

I brought home our new toy today, can you guess what it is?  I'll give you a hint, I'm using it right now.  I can use it in the kitchen or in the living room while watching TV.  Our photography business will benefit from it.  This blog will benefit from it.  It is sleek and a whole lot of fun.  A great deal too, thanks to our good friend Mike.  You rock Mike!

Did you guess?  
***Edited:  This is the hundredth post!  And it only took a year and a couple of months :)

Eye Candy

Just good old fashioned YUM factor!

Just Getting Through the Week

Thought I would share this painting. I really hope to buy it someday because it makes me happy. It does a great job of reflecting my mood right now. I think it looks a lot like the way I picture us, a little serious, a tad mysterious, and on the verge of having way too much fun together. ( I also just adore hedgehogs!)

Here are my goals for the weekend:
(maybe if I write them down, I will actually stick to them)

1. Figure out my new toy (not telling yet, saving it for later)
2. Pat myself on the back for having both of our cars paid off
3. Get creative and actually get some scrapbooking done
4. Figure out the new writing lesson plans
5. Read a good magazine
6. Edit more of the vacation photos
7. Celebrate Rex's new job with him
8. Spend time with good friends over an amazing bowl of jambalaya

Until then.....Have fun storming the castle, I'll be here holding down the fort.

Almost Forgot About the Monkeys!

The Zoo

A couple of weekends ago we headed to the zoo with our upstairs neighbors. Snuck the boys in using our family pass and had a lot of fun seeing the exhibits through the eyes of little ones for a change. Despite the massive amounts of people and the extreme heat, we had a wonderful time once again. (Took lots of fun photos too!) I don't think I'll ever get tired of visiting the zoo. :)

This One's For You Rockstar!

This weekend we headed to ARTS, BEATS & EATS in Pontiac with Rach to check out RADIOCRAFT. They ROCKED as usual and we got lots of great pictures too! (Chris, Josie, I'll burn them for you :) Looking at art and listening to live music is such a great way to spend the last Saturday of summer vacation. I even got a little bit of sun in the process.

**Still catching up. I'm in the process of editing and uploading photos of the zoo, labor day and our trip with mom and dad. Thanks for being so patient, more to come very soon!
