The Laundry Room

So, i've had the goal for weeks of getting my laundry room back in functioning order. I've been stacking things in the "lockers" and on the was sick really. So, today, I worked on it. I even bought a rug, a cool container for my laundry detergent, and little "chalkboard" place cards that were on clearance to label each of the coat hooks in the locker area. I think it's cute, or at least for a laundry room!

Seasonal Decor...

Am I the only person in the blog-world that doesn't do Halloween decor? I mean truth...the only thing about Halloween I like is the dressing up and pumpkins....oh, and the candy corn! I'm not into skulls and skeletons, witches and brew, gravestones and ghosts. Am I the only one that doesn't want this depressing stuff around my house to look at all the time?

I don't let my kids dress up in scary costumes, no witches, gremlins, not even the "black" spiderman costume! I like the cheerful stuff around here! 

My fall decor this year consists of a basket on my coffee table with some fall veggies like pumpkins and squash...and the truth is, I'm completely hapy with that! (and this isn't a great picture of it either!)

I'll save my re-decorating my house for Christmas...and that will happen before T'giving! LOL

What to do on a sick day...

So, M is still sick. She has a throat infection, and I cannot get her fever to go away! So for two days, we've snuggled in the big chair, watched tv and movies...gotta love it. I probably should get the dishes done, but instead, I did a speed scrap this morning. I love the page that I ended up with! I used JennCk's Everyday Wishes. She's guesting this month at SM and I love this kit! So beautiful! (oh, and my fav templates...WM[Squared]'s Got Curves V2)

I took these pictures of Madysen last week at the park. I am taking this photography class at Jessica Sprague and wanted to play with the manual setting. I think they turned out okay, might be a little dark, but I'm loving this page I did with them! Thanks for looking!

What a mom's birthday!

Goodness, the past couple of weeks have gone quickly! I'm not sure what exactly happens!, cheer, football, watching football, school, practice, shopping, scrapping, tv watching, football, oh, and BALLOON FIESTA! Love that!

How 'bout some of my favorite BF pics...

This one might be all time favorite...especially with the app I used on my iPhone4...yes, I took this with my iPHONE!!
This picture I took Tuesday morning from the Target parking lot...
This was from the first Saturday morning....right as they started taking off!
And a few other from the first Saturday (I haven't made the others web ready yet!)

We had a great time, it's one of my all time favorite things I've done seriously! Over 500 cool....

Oh, I've had an interesting day! I might as well talk about it...
1. I forgot to take Hunter to school an hour early for Spanish class...oops.
2. I found out my baby sister (the one who got married this summer) is getting to come to Texas next weekend...while we'll be there...and later that I get to finally take pics of my little gal in her flower girl dress with AJ in her wedding dress!
3. I bought a new computer!!! I got a MacBook Pro! Her name is Fiona. She's beautiful.
4. I volunteered at school for both kids today. It was fun spending time with them at school. Totally fun and amazing how different 6 Kindergarteners and 6 4th graders are...not sure which I prefer! They were all fab!
5. Between 2pm when I left M's class and 3:40pm when I picked her up from school, she started running a fever. lovely.
6. Forgot H's snack before his Robots class...loser mommy.
7. stand still traffic on the way to pick up H from Robots class and was very very close to not getting there before Explora closed. jeez
8. I got home to put the pork tenderloin in the took twice as long to cook than the directions said. Outta control.
9. I had to pay an exuberant amount to change platforms from Windows to Mac for my Adobe Creative Suite. Not good at all.
10. THE RANGERS WON!!! So happy for a team that I've cheered for YEARS for! WOO HOO!
11. I'm about to go play with my new Photoshop 5.
