A Few Months Ago & Several Easy Pays Later . .

Before we found out that Jake was loosing his 13 year job to Circuit City because of bankruptcy I made a rather large purchase for myself, more than I'd normally spend on something just for me. I'd wanted one for ooooh so long .. . . as sad as it seems it really was a dream of mine :) So good old QVC had the one I wanted on 6 Easy Payments... and so I splurged . . . . Even though it's a bit tight paying it off it has totally been worth it and I have no regrets . .

Here you go . . a serious cooks best friend I present to you My Red Kitchen Aid Artisan Mixer . . .

I love you . . . . .

A little Scrapbooking :)

I have a book that I bought a few years ago. It's Elsie Flannigan's 52 Scrapbook Challenges. I haven't officially used any of the challenges from the book since I bought it, So I thought I'd start! So this is challenge #1!
Here is what I came up with :)

It's May!!!

Wow! I cannot believe it's already may :) May is a special month for me, It's of course Mother's Day and My Birthday :) Love that! I'll be 34 this year... I don't feel a day over 25, so that's good.. hehe! Don't know what my plans are for that... I always like to have my chocolate cake with my chocolate icing. with Chocolate Ice Cream :) YUM! Other than that not sure. I've thought I'd like to have a few people over or something... We'll see. For Mother's Day I'm hoping my hubby keeps up tradition and takes Mom and I out for dinner :)

So this last Thursday my friend Danette and I headed down to Maypearl, TX to our favorite retreat place, Stolen Moments Inn! We hadn't been in so long and the two of us had been thru so much we needed to girls weekend for sure. We had a great time, enjoyed spending time with our Texas Girlfriends, I'd missed them all and enjoyed catching up and having girl talk. I also managed to get 35 pages completed a few layouts to go and the girls scrapbooks are all caught up, then it's time to work on my OOOOOOLD pictures.. LOL!!
The flowers you see above are the beautiful flowers that hubby had waiting for me one morning last week, He's thoughtful like that :) I love being showered with love :) and he is sweet like that!
One day last week before we left out for school I took a few pictures of the girls out in the yard... So I'll share those. Nothing big planned for the week getting caught up on things around the house and online that I got behind on over the weekend and getting my scrapbook stuff unpacked and Mothers Day gifts started :)

Here are those photo's of the girls . . .

Until Next time . . .
