that's all i can really say...i'm exhausted. so much has been going on lately. between back to school shopping, sleeping over friends, dentist appointments, running errands, and blah blah, we received some bad news last thursday.

michael's grandfather passed away last week and he left on friday to head to milwaukee. he won't be back till this friday so i took off this week to be at home with the kiddos.

we are going to miss his grandfather deeply but knowing that he lead a full life filled with love makes us feel a little bit better. i'm glad that michael has had this time to spend with his grandma and his sister. i know that is making them all feel better and i just wish that we could have went with him.


on to some happy things.

being off does mean though that i do have time to get some stuff done. the house is clean (for the most part ;), i've been baking up a storm and i'm about ready to throw some dough into the bread machine and make
some of these mini vanilla wafers, some homemade chicken soup for dinner, and some cherry preserves!

i've also scrapped a very little. but you'll have to stay tuned for those los ;)

i'm super excited about this

i pick up michael tomorrow at the airport between 10-11 pm and i've already told him that we are stopping at barnes and nobel on the way home. i got an email from them yesterday that said they were having a release party (hello partying with the teens ;) and i'm hoping that i can get my hands on the book by midnight ;)

who else out there is on pins and needles.

and lets not get me started on the movie.
{deep sigh}

oh did anyone watch project runway last night?
did y'all not die when they were trying to get tim to say "holla" right???

shit i love that show.
and is anyone else ready for ms. leathaah to be cut? good grief.

oh and last but certainly not least, some fab*boo people have tagged me with this

i don't know who all has received this and who hasn't, but i'm tagging anyway....

who is so stinkin' cute and someone i wish i could meet b/c i know we would just jive.

b/c she is just the sweetest thing ever and we share a love of marshmallow dip, books, kitchen aid mixers.

she is an awesome scrapper who has an amazing eye for design and photography.

damn i love this chick. who else can ask a friend "is it just me or are you ready for edward and bella to fuck?" and she doesn't email you back with a "you're a freak. don't talk to me ever again" but toally agrees with ya!

to the sweetest chick ever! to an amazing photographer who totally blows me away. a chick who can quilt with the best of em and makes me so completely crazy jealous of her skills.

a rockin' scrapper who can put the bestest swap package together ever! to this day she remains my favorite swappy partner and awesome bloggin' buddy. even though we don't chat as much, i think of her daily :)

miss leopard print
not only do i think this girl can scrap with the best of em, she's hilarious as all get out and stamped me some mr. t images. umm hello....awesome!

okay, off to start baking and possibly snugglin' up to "eclipse" again so i'm all ready for friday :)
