A Brief Visit Home

I got home a couple of hours ago. Our Big Wig Bash was a blast!! Lots of games, prizes, munchies, yummy food, scrapbooking, and fun!
I'm exhausted though, going to hit the sack now. I have to get up in the morning and pack to leave for a week at the cabin...just too tired to do it tonight. I'm definitely going to spend some serious time doing absolutely NOTHING while at the cabin.


So Much To Do

This week, I've been really tired, and having a hard time doing all the running around that I need to do. I'm getting ready to go to Cindy's for the next few days, for our Big Wig Bash. At the same time, I'm trying to get ready for another trip to the cabin with Drew. We're going to be gone for nine days. I just need fewer things to do, and more hours in my day.
Guard well your spare moments. They are like uncut diamonds. Discard them and their value will never be known. Improve them and they will become the brightest gems in a useful life.
---Ralph Waldo Emerson


I'm Home...

For a whole four days!! Then I'll be gone again. Will be at Cindy's for our Big Wig Bash...then it's back to our cabin in Midway until the 1st of Sepember! After all this vacation, I'm going to need a vacation!!

I can't wait for September, I don't have a million things to do. Although, I AM thinking about a little redo in the livingroom. New wallpaper and paint...PINK! We'll see how much energy I have left.

Remember, no matter where you go...there you are.


Going Again

Well, I've been home since yesterday afternoon, and today I'm getting ready to leave again. Drew and I are going to the cabin tonight, and spending the weekend. I miss being at home, just doing nothing. It's hard to keep coming and going, and trying to get things done in between.
Okay, that was my little pity party for today! It's over now, I have to go finish getting ready.
Where we love is home. Home that our feet may leave but not our hearts. -Oliver Wendell Holmes


Back Home

Be happy with what you have and you will have plenty to be happy about. -Irish proverb


Simple Joy

Today was a busy, but fun day. I hosted a baby shower for my niece, Ashlee. We had a good time...lots of talking, laughing, and eating too much!
Now, I'm doing laundry and packing to go to the cabin tomorrow with Heather. Our plans include scrapbooking, movies, and pajamas. I can't wait! It's going to be five days of L-A-Z-Y!!
It's the simple joys, the simple pleasures the heart remembers and dearly treasures. -Hadin Marshall


Family Get-Together

I sent out invites yesterday, to all of my family members. We're having a get-together at our cabin. It's been three years since we had the family up there, so I'm getting really excited about doing it again!
This Sunday, my daughter, Heather, and I are going up for 5 days. We're going to do a little scrapbooking, and just pretty much veg out on the couch watching movies! Can't wait!
Well, time to get up and get busy again...before I fall asleep!


Crazy August!

This month is absolutely crazy! I've got so much to do, that sometimes I feel like I'm running around in circles. I'll be out of town for about half the month, on three different occasions, and I'm hosting a baby shower, a crop (with my sister, Cindy), and a family party at our cabin. How do I get myself into these things?

BUT, on the upside, I do feel better when I'm busy and getting alot accomplished. AND, my house is finally getting the cleaning it so desperately needs. I changed my side table in our bedroom today, and I think I like it. Maybe...I'll have to look at it for awhile.
Here's a quote I love:
Live in the moment and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering.


Can't Wait

I'm getting excited for our Big Wig Bash!! Tonight, my sister and I ordered our wigs for the crop. It's going to be so fun! This is the wig and glasses I ordered. Aren't they a riot? We got them from anytimecostumes.com. They have a great selection of fun items.


Big Wig Bash

My sister Cindy and I are planning a Big Wig Bash on August 22 and 23. If you're a scrapbooker, and would like to get your friends together for a BIG crop, go to Big Picture Scrapbooking to learn all about it. It's going to be a whole week of activities, prizes, and fun!!


Some Favorite Things

I have a real obsession with pretty dishes, teapots and teacups. And if they're pink...it's even better!
So, today was a really fun day! I spent the day visiting and going to lunch with my sisters, Cindy and Cheri. I love spending time with them, they are both just a hoot! I feel so blessed to have 5 sisters, though 2 of them live in a different state. :( But, when you have sisters, you always have girlfriends!
On a totally unrelated topic, I found this cool quote awhile back:
You are braver than you believe,
stronger than you seem,
and smarter than you think.
