where is the summer??

It is still so cold here - seems like the last week there has been one storm after another. Hoping today was the last of them. Had a pretty good week - went to park city Fathers Day shopping - my sister in law steph and bobbie - we had 8 kids under the age of 7 - needless to say we didn't get to much accomplished - but we did get what we went for. These in-ear headphones from BOSE - supposed to be amazing sound and blocks out other noise while riding and running (which i'm not sure is such a great idea) - but he really wanted them - so thats what he got.

Then today took Ethan to the dr. because his voice sounded funny again - and i just knew it was strep - so this is the 5th time since January - so we are going to get his tonsils out. Poor little dude - i think it will benefit him though. Mason had his out when he was 3 and it made a big difference. I'm going to try and hold out till after our camping trip over the 4th - we'll see.

On a scrappy note - hit the Warehouse sale for Fancy Pants Designs last weekend and it was pretty darn good. I won't even tell you how much i bought -but the prices were AMAZING!! And it was alot of the most recent lines too - and some older stuff that i didnt have and loved. sooooooo i stocked up!

Also - i was pretty excited to see my layout (You are my World) - in my last post as Page of the day over at the Creating Keepsakes Blog on 6/4 - you have to scroll down to see it - but it put a smile on my face! And this layout that was chosen as layout of the day over at SIStv on 6/2.

One last layout i did for the OLW challenge Blog - its their 1st birthday and they are having lots of prizes this time - 7 winners i think - you have till friday and the word is ONE!

Loved these hambly overlays - so cool!

OKay i swear this is the last exciting thing for me - i shouldn't go so long between posts and then they wouldn't be so dang long! Sorry - but check this out! I am a dang lucky guesser - Laura Vegas was having a contest on her blog to guess how many thingies of thread were in a jar - i was only 1 away! So that means she is doing a layout for me and I also won the new Passport Collection from Making Memories! Yay! So now i need to pick some great pictures and get them to her so she can get started! I had a lucky week! (other than Ethan getting sick)!
