I'm writing down EVERYTHING!

I've been inspired by scrapbooking/life artist Ali Edwards for a long time and this week she is hosting a Week in the Life project online.  Basically, I'm living my life as usual with the added responsibility of writing EVERYTHING down in my uber-cool Zombie Escape Plan journal.  What I eat, what I do at work, what I do when I get home, morning routine, bedtime routine, etc.  I'm also taking a ton of photos of my everyday along the way: my desk at work, food, shoes left by the door, relaxing with the laptop, the drive to work, the price of gas, etc.  This week I collect, next week the real work starts as I will develop some sort of method/format/plan for scrapbooking the week.  The idea is to be able to look back and remember the little things, as well as to see how much things change.  Someday my days will be different, they won't be so carefree, someday I hope to have little ones who will love looking at our lives way back in 2008. :)

This is what happens to extra birthday balloons!

Arrrgh, Matey!

A couple of weeks ago we celebrated the birthday of our great friend and most regular form of entertainment, Chris. While I was at work Rex went on a shopping spree, cleaning spree and baking spree to make sure the day was perfect for a family filled fun night.

You can't have a pirate party without dressing like pirates...(Hands off wenches, this scallywag's mine!)

Another specially made Jennycake...

Happy Birthday Rock*, we love you!

A pirate walks into a bar with a paper towel on his hat, 
and orders a dirty rum, which he promptly finishes saying, "Aaargh Matey, I'll have another!"
After a few more rounds the bartender notices that the pirate is rather sweaty and agitated.
The bartender says to the pirate, "What's up? You look a bit nervous, what seems to be botherin you?"
The pirate replies, "It's been a bad day already Matey, on the way into town this morning, no less than three people stopped me to tell me I've got a bounty on me head!"

***Stay tuned for Pirate Party pictures tomorrow! 

I Love Fairytales

I have been really into fairytales lately, especially Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland. Found this and just had to share it because it's so adorable!

Your wait is almost over Teach! Hang in there kiddo, just a few more days until you finally get to see your little Beaner. I can't wait to meet her!

***UPDATE--Teach had a very healthy and absolutely adorable baby girl on Sunday! I can't wait to see mommy, daddy and baby in person!

...we stopped for our favorite special treat...
ice cream...

(You have to share the leftovers!)

....and I went back to school shopping and found a few cute items to show off the first couple of weeks of school. 

Las Vegas Album

Before visiting Vegas this summer I put together a simple two ring album using a bunch of my favorite Love Elsie papers.  While there I was able to add brochures, post cards, and found objects while also journaling as the days flew by.  I absolutely LOVED this method of scrapbooking!  All I had to do when I got home was add the photos. 
 So, in the absence of the actual photos from the trip (we're still having trouble uploading) here are a few of the pages in our Vegas album. 
(I'll share the Summer Food album  photos soon. :)
