What weekend ......

Been feeling run down this weekend. I think I better pop some vitamins. Spent most of my Saturday in the hair salon and then Tasha and I spent the rest of the day at the new IKEA store. I must say I am in love. You have to pack a lunch to go there but it is everything I thought it would be and now that I know the ins and outs it will be a lot easier the next time we go. We did Sushi after that and I called it a night. Sunday was spent doing work, helping with homework, grocery shopping and even managed to stop by a stamping store close by to get some cardstock. It was a long day and I was very happy to finally see the kids sleeping. Look how peaceful they look. Every night I going into there room to make sure they are fixed comfortably and kiss them on the head. Thought I would take a picture of what I see each night.
This is why I love my husband. We ate well. Our Sunday dinner was stuffed shells and veggie and beef casserole. I am still stuffed.

Silly is as Silly Does....

Yes we can still be silly after being together for 8 1/2 yrs. and married for 5 1/2 yrs. I really had so much fun hanging out with my hubby this past weekend. We had one of our weekend getaways that I just love so much. We did Tampa this time. The second time this year but we just can't get enough of the Busch Garden rides and the Hal-o-Scream was good too. Ezzy had a field day laughing at me being scared out of my mind. This picture was taken after driving for 3 hours non-stop. Now, I know for some people that is nothing but for me it is a lot and I only really endure it because the end result is worth it. I love this shot in the mirror. This is right before we headed back out to the park for the Hal-o-Scream. Can you see that devious smile on Ezzy's face. He had it all planned in his head how he was going to help those Busch Garden park employees scare the sh!t out of me.

OK and now a little something in the spirit of Halloween. I brought home some Halloween cookies couple of nights ago for the kiddies. We will be going to get costumes this weekend. Well really just a costume for Niah because Nayshawn said he didn't want a costume this year. Maybe I will try to find him a orange shirt or something.

What can $117 get you????

Tons of clothes for the kids from Children's Place. Well, Ezzy and I went to Tampa over the weekend to the Busch Gardens Hol-o-Scream ( We had so much fun) and on the way back we stopped at the Outlet Mall in Miromar, FL . We really only stopped because we promised the kids we would bring them something back. So on our way to the Toy Store Ezzy noticed a sign in the Children's Place window that said $2.99. We went in and the rest is history. We saved about as much as we spent. I am never lucky like this, So it must have been Ezzy. On another note. Niah and I had craft day two Sunday's ago. We made a rabbit. We got the directions from a book she brought home. I am very proud of her reading and and doing each step until she got to the last step.

Trying To Feel Good Today.....

Been doing a lot of scrapping lately. There are times when people will ask why I scrap. Right now I am scrapping to feel good. Been having a rough week but when I sit down at my scrap desk I get lost in creation. I love the feeling that I get when I create a Layout. It is feels like instant gratification. I trying to come up with new techniques and designs. Lately I have been thinking about doing some canvases and getting some opinions on them. Ezzy says he would love me to do one for his office. We will see. I will keep you updated on that. Anyway here are some Layouts I have done lately.

Some really awesome B-day gifts...

Well just wanted to show off some of my favorite birthday gifts. The flowers and purse are from my Aunts. They know me too well. The rabbit is from my kiddos. How sweet is that?
On another note. I have a really good weekend. Went out with the girls for my friends birthday. Had tons of fun. Had a photo shoot with a friend on Saturday. I did pretty good. Then relaxed for the rest of the weekend. I have been going so fast that I didn't realize how tired I really was. But I am fully recharged and ready for the week ahead of me.

More Party Pictures....

I got my mom's camera last night and uploaded the pics she took of the party. We sure did have a good time.
Think I am going to scrap this weekend and maybe take the kids to the beach or park. We will see.
One last thing..... I was tagged by Nessa
Here are 7 random things about me....
1. I was once a beauty queen.
2. I love the colors orange & yellow.
3. I love to decorate although I am not very good at it.
4. I love going to the park with the kids every chance I get.
5. I watch Grey's Anatomy every Thursday.
6. When I first met my husband I was very skeptic as to why he wanted to date me. It took me a long while to lighten up to him.
7. My family calls my scrappy because I love to scrap so much.
Now you know just a little bit more about me.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone.

Feeling Good Today.....

Wow I am feeling so good today. Just really happy to be alive and well (or some what well). The kids are great, hubby is great and so sweet. Just really loving life right now.

We are planning a trip to Busch Garden's Hal-o-Scream next weekend. I love doing fun stuff like that with Ezzy. This time we are inviting my brother his girlfriend and a couple of our friend. Can't wait.

Well I have so serious scrapping to do. I just realized the other day just how much scrap supplies I have and I really have to use as much of them up to make room for more. I think I might do a RAK here to give some of them away.

I am suppose to have a photo shoot with a friend of mine this weekend. So cool. I really want to do this photography thing. Who knows maybe I can quite my day job. Tasha is working on a home show for me and her cousin to display our work and see if we can get some business. I have to get started on that really soon.

Well that is if for now. Talk to you later.

Had a Wonderful Birthday....

My party on Saturday was so much fun. I had so much fun I only took 24 pics. Can you believe it. I am trying to gather all the pics from the others that were there. The kids didn't make it pass 11:30. Poor things were so upset they missed the cake. So guess what mommy did. I let them have ice cream cake for breakfast. Check my shirt out. "I Love My Hubby". I really do. He gave me a wonderful party that I will never forget. My little man. Kevin and his girlfriend. Go DJ. Niah rocking the baby phat. Tasha being the suffisticated 30 yr. Ladies in Black.

OK so Niah suckered me into paying 6 bucks to get her face painted by some clown in the mall on Saturday. I must admit she does look very cute. She is such a girlie girl for sure. Well, just counting down until my Birthday. I am so excited about my party on Saturday. I have got everything in order. Even looked up how to make a Chocolate Martini. Today was a good day got home, made dinner, got the kids to do homework, and got them showered and into bed all before nine. Love those easy days. Well, I should really try to get some sleep. It is now 12:51 am and I am on the computer while Ezzy is asleep beside me.

October Already???

Let me start with a Layout I did for the Bad Girl Top Designer Week 3 Challenge. I did not make it to week 4 but was glad for the challenges. Wow, I can't believe it. It is already October. My Birthday is around the corner and I can't wait. And Ezzy and I decided to have another party. We had so much fun last year that we just had to do it again. I will have pic for you next week I am sure. The weekend after that we should be headed to Busch Gardens for HollowSream. It is always very amusing to get the shit scared out of me. If anything Ezzy enjoys it. We always have a good time. On Saturday night we celebrated the birthday of a friend of mine. We went out the an Greek restaurant Opa. Very interesting. Didn't care for the food but the atmosphere was great. Belly dancers and people dancing on the tables. I even got up there for a little bit. Fun stuff.
