Scrapbooking Saturday 022 | Layout Catch Up


Good Saturday morning!! I hope that this finds everyone well & toasty warm. I hope that no one has been hit by that crazy snow storm in NY. Now, I love me some snow. I am not really sure about that much. I pray that everyone is safe up there!

It has been a while since I have done a scrapbooking saturday. So...that is exactly what I am doing. Today's SS is just a layout catch up. What I have been doing since I haven't really been on blogging, is scrapping. A LOT of it. So, here are some of my favorite layouts. You can click HERE for full credits.

There you have it. Some of my newest and most favorite layouts. I will be back from time-to-time to brag some more. lol. Interested in getting started in digi-scrapbooking? I taught myself. Seriously! If I can do it, you can too. I got a photo editing program and looked up tutorials. There are a lot more now than there were 7 years ago. I did a lot of googling. I would suggest starting HEREHERE. There is a great collection on TUTS. From the beginning to the difficult.

Friday Favorites || 002


Good afternoon everyone! It's finally Friday! Woop! So, today I am just dropping in to show you some more items off my wish list. What I am crushing on this Friday. My favorites. Take a look: 

You can find number 1 HERE. Is that not just the sweetest? Bug and I have our little song to tell each other that we love each other. This household is very open in their love for each other. I think this necklace is perfect for this mommy!! 

#2 is so pretty and raw. I used to want to be a geologist! Have I ever mentioned that? Well, I did. All the way up to the 8th grade. Earth science that year & we watched a video about geologists. I saw them repel down into a cave. The opening was smaller than them. They had to hold their arms above their heads...I hyperventilated in class just watching that! So, I axed that pretty quick. I still love beautiful gems though. 

Ooh la la!! ;-) I love clothes. That includes under clothes. Nothing like a pretty bra to pep me up. Feel sexy. You know what I am talking about! It is also pretty hard (and expensive) to find brazeers to fit my big girls. I came across this lovely and went on my list very fast! Check out THIS pretty bra! 

So, there is a bit of my wishlist. The things I am crushing on today and my Friday favorites. What are you crushing on right now? link me up!!

Blog-It 52


Good afternoon!! I hope this finds everyone well. It finds me watching, "How to Train Your Dragon 2", for the 3rd time in 24 hours. It finds me with a headache that I have had well over 24 hours now. However, I will take it as a headache. It was a vomiting migraine for 12 hours, yesterday. It also finds me getting ready and gearing up for 2015's projects. I hope you will join me in one of them. Introducing...

Blog-It 52!! What is blog-it 52? Well, it is a lot like a project 52. A photo a week kind of thing. However, it isn't photos. It is blog posts. I know there has to be bloggers out there, like me who struggles with consistent blog posts. So, for at least one post a week, I got you covered!!

I will post two month's of prompts at a time. That way, you can blog ahead if you want. Every week, whatever day you want, take that prompt and blog about it. I would love if you came back here & linked up with everyone else. You don't have to though. There are NO RULES with this project. I just want to help other people blog. So, without further adieu, here is the 1st two month's prompts.

I am really looking forward to this!! They are all simple prompts. Nothing that you are really going to have to wrack your brain with. Just fun, light, and easy blog posts. If you forget what to blog about or want to go back and look at past posts, you can do so HERE. If this is successful, we will do it again in 2016 and posts picked out by not only me, but you.

There you go. Get your blogging brains ready & brush up those blogs. In just a few short weeks ( can you believe the year is over in less than 2 months?!) we will get our blogging on!! If you happen to want to put this button with your posts, or on your blog, have at it! (This is a no rules project though...so, not required!)

Friday Favorites - 001


Good morning everyone!! Good FRIDAY morning!! I am really glad that this week is over. Not that it has been a bad week. It just seems that it was long. I don't really have anything planned this weekend. I think I am going to be lazy. That sounds like a plan.

So, Christmas is just around the corner. I cannot believe how fast this year has flown. We already have most of our Christmas shopping done. Just a few more people left. One of them being my hubby. He is the world worse person to shop for. Me? Well, I have a running wish list all year long. Oh yeah! I have to be one of the easiest people to shop for. That being said, I thought I would pull some stuff off that list and show them off as my Friday Favorites. Let's get this party started!!

Since I know you are asking yourself, "where can I get these awesome things myself?" Well, let me tell you. You can get that awesome panda ring, here. Those shoes, are pretty cool, right? I have this thing with black flats with studs and spikes on them. I might have two pair. I need more. The great thing about these shoes are the price!! You can get two for $19.00. Wow! There are more colors than just black as well. Grab them HERE before the sale is over. Last, but not least. That mug!! They are hand drawn and this shop is loaded with beautiful items. I have many on my wish list. This was the one that brought me to her shop. Go check it out & grab you one. You can never have too many mugs.

There you go. That is a few of the things I want. Feel free to buy them for me. lol...Jeremy, not lol. For real! :-D What is on your wish list?

That is one of the best things about being a parents. 
Today, I was thinking about how much my child had grown. How much he has learned. 
Not only am I thankful, I am proud. 

I wasn't there when he said his first word. :( I was at work. One of the bi-products of working 12 hours at night. A lot of things happen at night. However, his first word...Momma. That's right! 
I was there for his first steps though. When he fell, I lunged for him and terrified him. Scarred him, I believe. It took about 3 months after that for him to walk again. He was nearly 15 months old. 
He learned to count so early. I was so proud. He learned songs like it was breathing! "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" I could listen to him sing that over and over again. 
He loved...loves...the sky. One of his first words (seriously) was moon. Then space. He would look up for the moon and the stars and call it all space. Not the sky. 

Now, that he is in 1st grade, I am just blown away. He is spelling words better than I am, advancing in reading and loving it, and is so interested in science and history. I am just amazed. A little sad too. I know that most parents feel this way. I love watching him grow in mind and body. On top of that, he is such a sweet boy. A bit hyper....but sweet.

So thankful though. My little guy is so smart. I am thankful to get to see him grow up. To send him off to school one way, and see him the next day a smarter child. Or for him to come home at night to tell me what he has learned. (Well, usually it is "I dont know". There are times though when he is excited about something and wants to tell me) 


Watching my child grow and learn is something I am thankful for. 

What are you thankful for today?
