Yes, I'm slacking....

Thank you Heather, Carrie, and as always, Ann for bringing it to my attention! ;)

I had already typed out a big huge post, but something either happened in blogger or with my connection and it was lost. So, I'm just going to do the quick summary thing.

My sister's wedding was the 16th. It was gorgeous. Kasara looked fantastic. The girls looked beautiful. My mom looked hot! A couple of snafu's, but they were handled beautifully. My mom forgot to light the unity candle and Mara stumbled going up the steps to the stage and she didn't cry, didn't get embarrassed and kept on smiling. I was so proud of her. The song Kasara picked out for the unity candle lighting was beautiful..."When God Made You". Download it and listen to it. The wedding party got chauffered by one of my parent's friends', Willy, in his 53' RV. HUGE!! Kasara, Donnie, me and the best man got to load up in Willy's cute little electric car and "cruise" main street with that big honkin' RV with the rest of the wedding party to the reception. The girls partied, but Mara and Micah fell asleep in front of the wedding party table, but McKenna partied the whole time. Guess we know who we need to watch out for when she's older!

Last Friday, me, Tiffany B. and our girlies Micah and Jordan went to the grand opening of Archiver's in Louisville, KY. NOticed a familiar layout on the cover of Scrapbook Trends while waiting to check out...the awesome Heather who did a layout of Brandie's son, Dylan. The girls were awesome. They did tend to get a little rowdy, but they were so cute together! We met Tiffany M. and her hubby at Cheesecake Factory for lunch after sb shopping. It was a good day!

McKenna was sick last weekend. I took her to the ER after I got off work Sunday evening. I was sure she had strep and she sure did. She got a big ol' shot of antibiotics in the butt. She wasn't happy about that, but I told her that was what she was getting before we even left for the ER. She was so brave. Hardly cried at all, but her booty sure was hurting for awhile! I promised her a Hello Kitty toy. :)

The x-ray dept. is now filmless!! I worked a couple of days this week learning the new system before I work this weekend. This is going to be so freaking awesome once everyone gets used to it.

Jasper plays Mt. Carmel in football tonite. Steve's tailgating with the guys tonite and my cousin, Kristi is bringing him a Mt. C sweatshirt to wear. She's afraid he's going to get beat up! LOL I think me and the girls are going to go and sit with Kristi, Mark and kids.

Next weekend....CEDAR POINT!!!

Check out the new video. It has to be the cheapest video ever made, but it's just cool. And, the song is growing on me, too.

Here's a few things I've done lately. KnK kit is Crate Paper Carnival for September and it's awesome. Really different from their last release. I played with a HS mask and beads...a first for me and it really made me think outside my scrappy box!

My DT stuff from Scrap-Tastic was some cherryArte stuff and Urban Lilly die cut flowers, HS clips, jewels, neat-o stuff. Another new thing for me working with those manufacturers. Used my Rhonna flourishes stamp for the first it!!

My friend, Jill, had a birthday, so I altered a tin for her. Using up my old BG.

The new A2Z papers I did for a class I was supposed to teach, but not enough people signed up for it, so I cancelled it. Love those papers! Double sided. Super cool. Got to play with a Coluzzle, too. Borrowed it from the Doodlebug. Wondering if I need to invest in one of those things. They have some neat templates.

I also have some stuff I did for the latest Ready, Set, Create! issue, but I can't post those yet. :)

Wow, long time no talk, eh?

First of all, I'm so sorry I haven't posted to my blog in like....forever! I wonder if I even have anyone reading it anymore? LOL I've felt really out of touch with everyone lately! I know, it's completely my fault, so I shouldn't complain. It's been a busy month around here among other things that I won't bore you with.

Well, to start off, Mara and McKenna are in school now! Yay! So, it's just me and Micah hangin' out. Except on Tues/Thurs mornings while she's in preschool. Wow, they are just growing up so fast. I never thought this day would come. I have to say, I'm enjoying it, too. I know, I'm a horrible mother for saying that, but it's the truth. Hey, I love my girly girls, but some "me" time feels pretty darn good. McKenna loooooves school, and I was really worried how she'd do. She's not usually open to something different, but she's adjusted really quickly. What a relief. Micah was so ready to start preschool. She gets out of the car and forgets I'm even around and runs on in. And Mara...well, she's just Mara. Go with the flow, no complaints kind of kid. Steve and I were just talking about how she doesn't get excited anymore when one of us comes home or really, whenever anyone comes over. She's content to stay in her room doing her own thing, or on the computer or watchin' TV. I guess we knew this day would be coming eventually, but it just seems so early!

Steve and I celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary on Wednesday. Crazy. We've been together for a total of 13 years. And I remember how he fibbed to his friends how old I was when we first started dating! Now the age difference doesn't seem that bad. Anyway, I love you honey! Oh, and the girls at KnK think you did good with my present! ;)

Steve and the girls are going to Holiday World this weekend for the Kimball picnic and they are soooo excited! It doesn't look like they will be able to go to the water park, since it's been so mild around here lately. I'm sure they will want to try it. Should be interesting.

My sister's wedding is next weekend. I'm sure it will be a huge relief to my mother! No more hives and other mysterious rashes for her while planning! LOL

Well, that's about it for now. I'll try and post some layouts I've been working on and to find a new video for ya. Oh, and Heather, thanks for keeping Steve company! ;)
