Easter is When??

OK, so today, I realized Easter is next weekend!! Yikes! We took out a couple of our storage bins and I have Easter decs spreadout and waiting to be organized. I lost my "mantle" when we bought a TV big enough that we had to take to top off our entertainment center.

So...yard work, planting, weeding, all general Spring activities today, since baseball dominated the day yesterday. And, Connor's team won, yay! I also had some "quality" time with my DVD of "New Moon" - I'm a Twihard, there, I've said it! :)

No pics of the flowers, sorry, it was too dark by the time I was done. I will tomorrow...I hope!

I'm back from Florida, still playing "catch up", but we're in the full swing of baseball season. I'm also feeling Spring all around. We bought a couple of gorgeous Chinese Magnolia trees and hope to plant them this weekend.

I bought some Easter goodies tonight and hope to get my decorations out this weekend too. I have some Easter decorations that I just love and look forward to putting out every year.

Happy Spring!

Greetings from Clearwater Beach, FL! I'm here for work, so truly, not much time for any fun. It's a stressful trip, a stressful event, and I hate the time away from home. What I'm doing for "fun" is sleeping, mostly. A delayed red-eyed meant I didn't get in my room until around 1:00pm EST. Between that, the time difference, then daylight savings, ugghh! We had a cocktail reception on the beach tonight. The weather has been a little cool out here, it was warmer at home! We had a beautiful sunset tonight...ask me why I forgot to take a picture????

I missed Connor's baseball game on Saturday, but had lots of calls and text messages with updates. Family and friends showed up in masse, which was great and I'm just sorry I missed it! I hope to get a chance to walk the beach tomorrow, Connor likes me to bring home shells. Let's not repeat what I did last year, where one of the shells still had the critter inside!!! I screamed so loud...Connor thought it was one of the funniest things he's seen!

Had a laptop scare, I'm just thankful I'm up tonight and will post more soon. When I get home, I have soooo many cards to make, I'm looking forward to putting some projects up soon! Take care!

The Countdown

Its been a few days since my last post. I told myself I would wait until I uploaded some pictures or actually made something to show. Alas, neither has has taken up so much time, as have school projects, and now, getting ready for a business trip to the East Coast. So...when I get back, pictures and projects will come.

Connor's team is 2-0, in his first game, and his first at bat, he belted one out to right field. He got so excited he started running toward third! Good thing he hit it out that far, it allowed him to get over to first and was still safe!

I busted out the diecutting machine today to help Connor with a class project. I took a little time with my dies, planning out some projects. I crave a little time to actually make something! I did have a couple of fun packages arrive recently. I ordered some stamp sets from Paper Tray Ink, a couple of them have a sports theme and I have something in mind for those. I also bought on eBay a Catalina Island vintage postcard. I plan on making cards for my friend Jackie who will live at Catalina and run a B&B, if she ever wins the lottery. I'll be her first investor if I'm the lucky one!

Enjoy the end of the week! Florida, here I come!

Field Trip Day!

According to Connor, "We won, Mom"! My name was drawn as one of the fieldtrip chaparones!!! I took the day off and will be going to the Aquarium of the Pacific with about 60 2nd graders. I'll be toting a backpack with about 5 or 6 lunches and be responsible for my little group. I'm actually looking forward to this, but being the mom of 1 kid, I'm a little nervous about herding a small group.

I'm sure it'll be fun, wish me luck!
