Hello Friday

Thank goodness it's Friday, I seriously don't think I could have gone one more day.

School has started back up, it has been kicking my butt! This routine thing is throwing me for a loop. The new thing in our normal school routine is Jr. High Athletics.

R1 has football practice everyday at 6:30AM. And I don't know why I'm griping about it because Hubs takes him. But I do have to get up at 5AM so that I can start to get myself together and then get the boys up and out the door by 6:10. R1 has been great about getting up to. He's loving football. First game is in a couple of weeks and I'm excited to see him play.

R2 is having a good year so far. He loves his teacher and his best buds are in his class. Lets see how long before she separates the musketeers.

Anyway we will be heading to the lake and we are ready for a weekend full of family, some great food, and fun in the sun.

So I'll see you peeps on Tuesday. Peace out!

Hurricane Isaac

Well Hurricane Isaac has by passed us. Thank you God.

It's not a very strong hurricane but it's big and moving very slowly which will cause flooding. Right now I'm watching the Weather Channel and keep talking about the possibility of the levies breaking again and they keep mentioning it's the eve of Hurricane Katrina.

So with everyone's stress level maxed out please remember to keep all in the path of this storm in your prayers.

Spock Nation

While channel surfing last night through our 827,000 channels trying to find something to watch I came across a channel that caught my eye.

I thought it said Spock nation. And I immediately thought how strange to have cable channel set up for a fictitious TV/movie character.

Then I took a second look and it really said Spook Nation. And it's not even what you're thinking.
No scary haunted buildings, not even one ghost.

It has to do with hunting whitetail dear. The host of the show is named William "Spook" Spann. He was born on Halloween which is how he got the nick name Spook. And yes I Googled the show to get this information.

But seriously couldn't he have come up with a better name and Spook Nation. I keep waiting for someone to jump out and say BOO!

My Memories scrapbook software GIVE-A-AWAY

A few weeks ago My Memories digital scrapbook software company contacted me and asked if I would be interested in doing a review for them. I was very excited to review their software because I'm what I call a "has been scrapbooker"

I used to scrapbook all the time. My books were almost current. I couldn't spend enough time in Hobby Lobby looking at all of material and planning out which items I wanted to each page and so on. But lets face it, since R2 was born I've done a bad job of keeping up with my books. I still have tons of pictures; just no time to pull all of my stuff out and get started. This is where I fell in love with the scrapbook software.

My Memories scrapbook software gives you the ease of using pre-made templates or creating your own. Just like you would do for your hands on scrapbooks. They have wide variety of pages, fonts, embellishments, and so much more. Most of us download our pictures on to our computers and say "Oh one day I'll do something with them." Now you can with My Memories. And you can do it quickly, so you have a finished page to show off.

Another great thing about this software is you can print the pages you make and put them in a book. Or you can email them to family and friends. You could also put them on your blog.

And My Memories scrapbook software has graciously offered to give one of my readers/commentators a free downloadable copy of their software. FREE!!!

All you need to do is go to their site, look around, find a few things you like, come back here and leave me a comment telling what your favorite item was. I'll leave the comments open until some time Thursday night. At that time I'll let the random number picker thingy do it's thing and I'll announce the winner on Friday.

Oh and here are a few things I did with my software.

Don't forget, go check My Memories and leave me a comment. Happy Scrapping!

Just another weekend

I would love to say we had wild weekend and it was chock full of fun but we had absolutely nothing planned.

I'm glad we really didn't' have plans because at some point Saturday night I began to feel sick and I went to bed at 8:30. Yep that's right 8:30pm. And I slept until 8:30 the next morning. I think I my body was telling me I needed 12 hours of sleep, because that never happens. NEVER!

The boys are off for one more adventure before school begins. The grandparents have taken them on a three day trip. I'm sure it will involve swimming, boat rides, and a visit to the zoo.

What this means is Hubs and I have time to ourselves. I'm sure this means dinner out, no Disney channel shows and more sleep.

So y'all have a great day and don't forget my give away for some great scrap booking software tomorrow!

2 More Days

That's right Hubs, I know you are reading, 2 more days. 2 more days of no school, no schedule, and no sleeping in.

And don't threaten me with shutting down house for the few days. I think you already have.

You did the laundry but didn't fold it for two days so every thing wrinkled. Then I know you said you got distracted and left a few wet clothes in the basket between other clothes.

Oh and then there's the kitchen floor, but won't even go there.

Don't get me wrong. I do appreciate all of the cooking you do. You are great at it and it works out good for me that you like to cook. And you do straighten up when I ask you to. I will miss my temporary house cleaner and full time cook when you go back to work.

But all this just ask what do you and the boys do for everyday, all day long? I'm just curious.

Oh and don't forget to tell your friends about the scrapbook give away next Tuesday! Have a great weekend.

Back to school

The first day of school is approaching fast. Not only for hubs and the boys but for me to.

Yep, I bit the bullet and registered for some college courses. Hubs finished his masters degree back in December and now it's my turn to finish my degree.

I started back before the boys were born but life kinda took over and I just stopped. So now I am ready to finish. The best part about my classes is that everything is online. That's right the program I am in is completely online. No sitting in a classroom. No taking time off of work or going to class at night. All online!!

And as an adult I can say this...I'm excited about going back to college. I don't think my 20 something year old self would ever have said that.

Oh and don't forget the scrapbooking software give away I'm having next Tuesday!

Give away coming soon!

A few weeks ago I received an email from a scapbooking company. They mentioned they saw my blog and thought I might be interested in doing a review for them on their software. They said they would send me copy of their entire program for me to download and try it out.

And to be honest, I don't get many reviews. In fact this is my first one. And I was a bit leery so I emailed Hubs and asked him to see if it was legit.

Once he confirmed it was OK, I emailed the company back and said I would love to do a review on their product. So they sent me a code to download everything. And as a bonus, I get to give away a copy of the software.

But for all my readers there will be a coupon code to receive $10.00 off of the software and $10.00 to use in their store.

Be looking for the review and the GIVEAWAY next Tuesday. So tell all of your friends!

Nick, who is my best friend Beth's son, is leaving for college on Friday. 8 hours away, in another state.

I'm excited for him to head off on this new adventure. I'm also excited to see how God is going to use him on his journey into the ministry.

It's really bittersweet. I have had the chance to watch him grow over the past four years. My boys have looked up to Nick. He has become part of our family just as we have become part of his. We have even set up traditions. 4th of July and New Year's Eve fireworks. Going to look at Christmas lights on Christmas Eve, after we have made pizzas, lots of pizzas.

I know Beth is going to miss him but you know what, so am I.
And so is R2!

Thursday, August 9, 2012

And we're off...

Yes it's that time again. There are electronic signs around town that say, It's hurricane season, be prepared.

Really how do you prepare for this?

Happy Birthday Hubs

Happy Birthday Hubs!

I would make a list of things according to your age but I don't know if I could come up with 38 things in this short amount of time.

So I will just say this, thank you for loving me. Thank you for being my best friend. Thank you for being an amazing father to our boys. Thank you for being a spiritual leader for our family. Thank you for just being you.

I love you and I hope you have a wonderful birthday!

Possibly the best spaghetti sauce commercial

Hubs and I were watching the Olympics last while we were laying in bed. The boys kept coming in and out of our room.

When all of a sudden this commercial came. I seriously don't think it wouldn't have been as funny if we weren't laying in bed.

OK it was still funny!

It's just about over

I can not believe it's August. What in the heck happened to June and July. I swear I think I blinked and July was over.

School starts back in just a few short weeks. I have managed to purchase all of the school supplies a last week. All the boys need is a new pair of shoes and we're all set. Speaking of I think I'm going to shop for those this weekend so I can say I'm completely done.

I want to make the most out of what is left of the summer. I want to chill out and relax. I want to take the boys on another trip to the lake.

So what are y'all doing to make the most of the last few weeks of summer?
