well here is a quicky update... ummm Im up to absolutely nothing but trying to catch up. I was going to post about the 1hour contest over at CS and totally forgot, but luckily remembered to actually attend. Here is my layout for that. Not bad for only my 2nd layout of the year. I was also lucky enough to get LOTD for this. So proud and thankful for that. :)also, last weekend we went back home.. I got some really great pics of my son Preston{I cant believe he is going to be 20 in April-where'd the time go???}I also have tons of other pics.. but no time to post. Maybe in the near future. I hope that all is ok with you all ... and please pray for me that sometime I catch up soon! haha. ;o)

Who pee'd on my floor?~

..... and why did I have to clean it up?

Ok, so this question has been burning a hole in my heart, soul and mind the last couple of days. I go into our master bath-pee on the floor, go into the guest bathroom-pee on the floor, pick up the kitty box-pee on the floor. What gives? Is it my husband, my boys... or the cat? What is up with this pee-nonsense?!?

Ok, in the master bath my husband hassss to be the one. I can excuse it at night since he is blind as a bat without his glasses. But during the day? No! I work with Todd and happen to know for a fact that he does not pee on the floor there. If he does he wipes it up. So why not at home? As for the guest bathroom. I have a 4yr old pee shooter. Yes, thank the good Lord he is better than he was when he first started potty training. That my friend was like a freakish firehose gone wild experience! Now.. he is just lazy about it and misses and doesnt care. Something I will have to grind into his mind that is NOT good. Now, the cat. What the heck is going on with her? She isnt even a dude.. so I cant blame it on a male gene of some sort. I think she is just not a good aim. And then on top of her aim.. she throws litter like she is dog digging the dirt to hide its bone.

Come on kitty... come on Todd... come on boys.. Give Momma a break! Please stop pee'n on the floor and if you do... CLEAN IT YOURSELF!!!! I QUIT!!!

February 12 on the 12th~

Sorry Im a little behind posting.. I thought for sure Id have time this past weekend but with the furniture shopping {will show you the princess bed later}, facebook obsession and sleeping and recovering from being sick.. I didnt get a darn thing done. So here is the fab 12....First of all... I scrapped... finally!!!... Cat had sent me the wooden birdie and tag on a card for me to alter.. I used rubons on the birdie and it turned out real cute I thought!
February is a month behind when I usually go to get my yearly checkup and mammogram.. and since I took this picture major changes have occurred to the calendar. My checkup got switched to the 20th and we are off to back home that weekend. The mammogram got pushed to March.
It just goes to show that this life of ours is ever changing!
This is Nikki.. I think I only have maybe 2 pictures of her with her eyes open. Argh. But lately this has been her spot.. snuggled behind my back while Im on the computer. She loves being close to her momma!
Facebook addiction.. need I say more?
I finally got my office rearranged at work and this is a view from my chair. This is where I do all of my harddddd working. {wink wink}
I meant for this photo to be of Todd and Hunter on their way to the annual Deer Classic. I was so happy that Todd took Hunter. But Hunter wasnt too happy about posing for a pic, so I got this one of my sweetie. :)
The current toy of choice for tub time for Hunter. I pretend that I am the chopper driver and drop the GI Joe dudes into the sea, where he is pretending to be the shark that eats them! haha To see a leg or head sticking out of his mouth at 7:30am... I tell ya, its fun being a Mom to boys!
Ahhhh organization. I have most of my new scrapbook room organized. Still working a bit on it, but I finally got all of my brads and eyelets separated by color and have two boxes full of embellishments.. and maybe another yet to come.
Smells... I have been buying up smells lately.. for some reason a lot of different things on sale or clearance. Which is how I came upon this reed diffuser... I still havent opened it.. how does it work... do you know?
My new Asics.. LORDAY are they comfy. I love these shoes. They cost a pretty penny, but holy moly... so worth it. I have a hard time any way with shoes.. but these are heaven on my feet! and cute too ;)
Im on a baking roll! I made Red Velvet cupcakes with Cream Cheese frosting w/Cinnamon sprinkles for Hunter to take to the sitters on the Friday before Valentines Day.. they were YUMMY!!!!
My dreaded self portrait. I was trying to be artsy... dont be hatin' ok? hahaaa

Ok, so... thats it for February... altho I will be taking pics when I go back home ..I cant wait! Watch for them in the next couple weeks... Also some other scrapping projects Ive worked on... YAY!
Have a great week!!!! ;o)

Earth to Joaquin~

Ok, somebody help me understand this.. what happened to Joaquin Phoenix???... He disappeared! Is he under that beard for reals? Oh how disappointed I am .. If he is not on drugs, he has lost his ever lovin' mind- no? I can understand a change in pace... but sweetie you are a brilliant actor!!! Cant you just sing in the shower or in more movies? Oh Im so sad. Here it is Valentines and one of my crushes has gone to la-la land and deserted me and everyone I know that loves him so much. I feel like Snoopy when he gets his heart broken.... awwwww. Joaquin come back to earth... dont follow the light.. Jim Morrison is NOT calling your name.. not yet!

In other news... I scrapped!!! I will share the layout and cards later this weekend along with my 12 on the 12th post. Have a great weekend and Happy Valentines Day! ;o)

Ruby Update~

Justice with Ruby
Its been a while since I posted anything about Ruby my birthday dog! She is doing pretty well, growing like a weed. She is doing better potty training. Ruby knows what *biscuit* and *wooby* means and will go to her kennel when we even mention biscuit. She loves to play with her wooby and runs through the house jumping over the lino in the living room, its pretty hilarious. Also when we through her froggie up in the air she does this cute lil spin! This morning I gave her a bath and she is doing really well with the bath times... she just sits there.. unlike her first several. hahaa Later this month we'll be taking her in to get spayed and current on her shots. How are the pets in your life?
Have a great weekend!!! :o)

He thinks he is Tony Hawk~

So, Hunter turned 4. I cant believe it. He has grown so much. I remember him as a baby like it was yesterday. I must say this kid is definitely ahead of his time. He thinks he is an extreme sports expert. He has already went through 3 skateboards and a phase where he only wanted us to call him Tony Hawk.. laffin'. Well for his 4th birthday.. his Aunt Melly bought him a new skateboard and helmet.. let me say its SICK!... It has skulls and he uses it in the kitchen since its still winter. He snuck it out once, but didnt get real far. hahaa Here are some photos I snapped the day he got it. Enjoy and have a great weekend! :)

Ok gang.. Listen up~

I jinxi aka angi now have GREY hair. Yup, I discovered the infectious strands last week. At first I thought it was just the lighting in the bathroom at work. I asked Todd and he said no, just looks like your color is fading some... {he is blind as a bat!}.. I looked again and though well thats not grey, its just a silvery shimmer {and again blamed the lighting} and then I asked my coworker... "Do you think this is grey hair?"... She examined my scalp and said.. "let me put on my glasses", I started to panic, I think I actually broke out in a sweat... she pulled the strands apart, focused and friendly.. and exclaimed "yes, I do believe those are some grey hairs".. OH LORDDDDD!!!! She even yanked one out and put it against her black calendar.. yup, certainty had hit me smack in the head. I now have grey hair. Of course I told my coworker that I was sure it was silver.. kinda like my Moms silvery brown. hehee ;o)
