Mother's day

What a wonderful day it was! I spent the day with my mother, children, and little sister. We went to the Adventure Aquarium in Camden, NJ. It was Channel 10 day and admission was $10 all day! We had such a great time looking at all the exhibits. Phoenix particularly liked the octopus. When we went into the jellyfish exhibit, he said, "Mommy, we are going jellyfishing!" That kid watches too much Spongebob.
After that, we went to Burger King for a quick lunch and some playtime. I haven't been in years and I must say I had a terrific time watching the kids play on the gym equipment.
Then, we went out to dinner. The rest of the family joined us and we just ate and laughed and had a wonderful day. I must say this was the best mother's day to date!

Fave Five Friday

Since this recession hit, I've been looking for ways to cut corners and become more fiscally conservative. I have discovered a new love of baking and I have made so many things from scratch that I would have normally bought in the store. I never realized how easy it is to make homemade pancakes, cupcakes, cookies, and the like with very few ingrediants. I have also started cooking more from scratch and I am very happy with the results. My waistline isn't though!

Umm, the woman gave me and my whole family free chicken dinners. I didn't have to cook or do dishes on Wednesday night. Thank you Oprah!

I just recently found facebook (okay I have had a page for like a year, but never used it) and I have already reconnected with a ton of good friends I had lost contact with. As a matter of fact, me and a good friend from college went out to a movie and to lunch after we reunited through facebook. I LOVE social networking!

This may be my all time favorite movie. I just can't watch it enough.

Why have I not used these sooner? I am kicking myself.

I actually think I have gotten my grove back. I made a few pages in the last couple of nights and I am happy with the results. It's coming back to me slowly but surely, but so is the urge to SHOP! I have to find some balance in scrapbooking between participating in the hobby and just buying everything I see. If anyone knows how to do it, let me know.

Easter has come and gone and I must say it was a nice one. We had an egg hunt for the kids that was fun for the adults as well as the kids. I video taped it, so I don't have that many still photos. I did manage to get a few of the kids before we went to church.

The other day, Phoenix was very crabby and Shannon (DH) thought letting him wear his jersey would cheer him up. Turns out it worked! That's one reason why kid's need their dads. I never would have thought of that..

I actually scrapped two pages for NSD. Nothing special, but it's a start. I've vowed not to buy another thing (accept adhesive) for the rest of the summer. I have sooo much stuff! It's crazy.

It's been a long time. . .

I am the worst blogger in the world, but that's because I haven't had anything interesting to post! I've let my scrapbooking lapse to the point where I don't even know what I'm doing when I pull my stash out anymore. I have to just create something to get my feet wet, even if I don't like it.

In other news, the kids are fine. Growing like weeds and getting into trouble. Shannon and I are planning on taking a Cruise this year to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary in December. I'm excited and looking forward to that.

Other than that, nada. See, I told you my life was boring. I've got some layouts I never posted that I'll probably upload tonight. See you then!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. . .

Trimming the tree with my kids makes it all worth while. Just being with them spending time together is better than any present. Here are some pics of the kids having a good time fashioning the Christmas tree.

Back in the swing of things

I'm such a bad blogger. I've been so busy lately preparing for the holidays, I just stopped everything else. But, I'm happy to say I have been scrapbooking again and it took a few layouts for me to get my grove back, but I think it's back now. Take a look:

Both I made with the Bad Girls November kit. It's such a great kit! Just my style.

Anyways, in other news my husband and I will be celebrating our 4th wedding anniversary tomorrow! I'm so happy because that means a night out without the kids. I've been looking forward to it all week. I can't wait to take a picture of us on our anniversary.

Till next time!
