Here are some new layouts


Wow what a few last weeks! I have been so busy at work (which is really good), Julie and Rudy got married. I had so much fun being right there for her wedding day! I will post just a few pictures.
Finally, I got to do some scrapbooking! My sister had a Scrap Crop with some fun techniques working with paint. Which is so out of my element But had such a good time learning from her! I went over to her house for the evening and scrapped away. I will post those soon.
Now on to the holiday season. I can not believe it is 4 days till Thanksgiving!! Cant wait to eat lots of food and have a wonderful time with family and friends. Also, its been a tradition that we started along time ago with the Hyslops to go over to their house and watch "Christmas Vacation" and any other movies we can fit in! So excited to start the Christmas season with such a fun movie!

Oh and I promise to get back to scrapbooking really soon!! I have lots of ideas in my head just not enough time to do them :)


Ok, so I have been super busy the last few weeks getting ready for my girlfriends wedding. I'm so excited that she has asked me to be her Matron of Honor. That has come with alot of task that I was so happy to take. The big day is in just about a week in a half. November 14th to be exact! I had to plan the Bachlorette party so we all decided to go to Chicago. We went on Oct. 23rd - 25th. We traveled to Valparaiso, IN. the first night and stayed with Ashley Kusher (Julie's future Sister-in-Law). Had so much fun! Then traveled to Chicago so shop till we dropped. We defiantly shopped till we dropped!!!!!! Then it was off to dinner at Buca De Peppo's. After the we headed to Howl at the Moon. Such a cool place to go to. Here are a few pics from the night.

Sad Day....

Today we had say goodbye to our beloved kitty Ashes. He has been with is for about 15 years. Ashes was diagnosed with Feline Diabetes about 2 years ago. Its been an interesting couple of years. If you don't know by now my husband was diagnosed 6 years ago. So when we found out ashes was diabetic it was a piece of cake to take care of. We knew how to test his sugars on his ears and give him the shots he needed twice a day. His health started to decline in the last 6 months or so. He had lost 2 pounds in a 1 month. We knew he was just not going to get any better. He had a great loving life with us and we will miss him dearly. Oh and I what I will miss the most is him cuddling with me on the couch. He loved to be right by my side as much as he could possibly do. I have posted a couple pics of him. He always loved getting up in the morning running straight to our bathroom to get water from our tub. We never really knew why he liked doing that when he had plenty of water in the kitchen! It was so cute I even got the best picture ever of him with water all over his face!!!

Work is a drag sometimes....

It has been a really busy, stressful, ugly week at work. We have so busy it's like its May in Indiana all over again! I love what I do but man its stressful. I called my husband and said I wanted to get away. Just for the day. Away from everyone and everything. So he found a place to go in Kentucky. So WE are heading to Newport Aquarium. Never been there before but I heard its the biggest in the midwest. We cant wait!

This was a simple layout

I got the paper when we went to Jasper, In. While we were on girls weekend.
Oh and Zea did not bother me at all. Maybe that's why it only took me 20mins instead of 2 hours!! She's been sleeping in the window all day. :)

Pictures Finally

Here are a few pics from Girls weekend.

Love Fridays!

Its cold, rainy and dark here in Indiana. No better time than to stay home with the hubby, eat some yummy chili and watch movies. Now only 10mins left of work and I get to go to that warm home with chili waiting :) The littlest things make me so happy!

Really is it October? I have been so busy I don't know where Sept went too!!! I have had the wonderful opportunity to be a Matron of Honer in my girlfriends wedding in November. I have been pretty busy with that. Bridal shower last weekend. I made some cute cupcakes for that. Next is Chicago for the Bachlorette Party. We just can't wait for that. It will be like a mini vacation!
I haven't had the chance to scrap a ALL. Hopefully this weekend will be calm and I can maybe do a couple pages. I"m so bummed I missed my first SAL crop! I'm sure there will be more to come in the near future.
Billy just got an Insulin Pump for his Diabetes. He is so excited to use it. We have to take two classes on the pump so we know what the heck to do. Its supposed to be really cool and alot better for him. We can't wait!!

Hello September!!!

I love September! It's so pretty out today I so wish I could go outside and play. I have so many things I want to do over the Labor day weekend.

I will be pretty busy this Sept. that's for sure! Going camping next weekend. Well, not really "camping" but its going to be Girls weekend down at my mom's camper near French Lick. It will be lots of fun shopping, the winery, and anything we can get our hands on!
Then we get to go "real" tent camping the next weekend with my girlfriend from work and her whole family. We have a two room tent that we got oh about 5 years ago. Never used it this will be fun. I'm not much of a camper outside kinda girl. We pulled it out last night for the first time. It looks pretty nice and it might get me in the mood to do a little more camping before winter comes!
