It's been over 3 years since I have typed anything and almost just as long since I have scrapped anything. I decided in the summer months of 2013 to attempt Project Life and I am proud to announce that it was a wise decision for me. I was able to complete my first album EVER. I was one of those people that dreamed of how my completed albums would end up and with life getting in the way or my creative slumps...at the end of the year I would end up with a few pages and that same dream. Along came Project Life and after a couple of years of going back and forth trying to decide if I would or not....I did and now I can finally look at my shelf and see a Complete Album for 2013 and it tells a true story of our real life. One that my daughter can look back on and really enjoy.
 So with all of my success, I have decided to "keep the party going"!! I have started my 2014 Project Life album and I am caught up. I plan on taking some pictures later and hopefully getting back into the groove of posting and sharing...who knows. With being a mom, working a full time job, working a part time job, trying to really focus on running and reading. It's gonna be hard to keep up with everything, but I'm gonna try for sure.

Okay, I haven't posted anything in 6 months, but I'm back!!
I have decided that I am going to try to get back into scrapping and into my blog posts; I actually even completed a layout this evening. However, it is way to late to try to take a picture of it, so it will have to wait until tomorrow. I realized on Tuesday while cleaning my scrap area that I have 4 full SD cards of photos, which means I am so far behind that it's not even funny. I also renewed my membership at MOSH POSH so hopefully it will get me motivated to get scrappin'.
My plan is to stay more organized this year; hopefully finally find my scrap style and maybe finally complete an album. I also plan to use up as much of my product as possible... I keep buying and not using!! LOL.
Well Happy New year!

{almost half of 2009...}

is gone!!!
I haven't updated my blog in over a month, I haven't sat down to scrap anything in over two months. There just isn't enough time in the day and I have to be honest I have been taking less and less pictures every week. If nothing else I certainly need to get back to picture taking because I don't get to get those moments back.
My solution? Well I always thought it was weird to see those moms/wives with the big organizers that had every minute of the week scheduled, but I think I need to be one of those moms. I need to alot time to scrap, time to play and time to relax otherwise it just won't happen.
Hopefully this will be the answer and at the same time should help me get it together all around.

{busy is an understatement}

Although I am not a fan of being a SAHM, I have come to learn that you miss out on a lot when your a working mom. I was taking pictures everyday and blogging, scrapping, etc when I didn't have a job. Now I have a temporary position and I haven't taken a picture in over a month.
I was able to get some really fun shots of "the princess" however they were taken by dad!!!
Hopefully I will find some balance during the month of May - no promises though.
Okay I am going to try to at least start on a page tonight... and by start I mean at least pick out the photos and paper and maybe find my 3 embellishments... wish me scrap luck.

{i sewed}

I am so excited about this... I feel like I'm actually making some scrapping progress. Today I pulled out my Provo Craft mini sewing machine and actually used it. My best friend purchased it for me years ago and I think I used it one time... well I have been seeing all these layouts with stitching so of course I want to run out and get a sewing machine. I decided if I can't use the one I got as a gift then I darn sure don't need another one. So I sewed!!!
Now of I could just get started on using up all of my stash.... I will be good to go. I hope everyone has a great week.

{29 + ?}

I can't say that this day was any different than the rest.....
I was surprised to receive a cupcake at work today. Of course I took a picture since I knew I wouldn't have a cake and of course I didn't get around to uploading it. So, as you guessed I have no pictures to share.
I would like to say (on a positive note) that traffic today was not too bad... my drive home was only 30 minutes; compared to 1 hour and 10 minutes yesterday!!! That little bit of difference made for a pretty good day.
So even though the plan was to get back into scrapping today, I have decided to just relax and enjoy today and just in feet first tomorrow. I have already found some great sketches that I want to use and I plan on getting some pictures printed off tomorrow. Hopefully I can get enough to last through the weekend. I don't really have anything planned so I have plenty of time to get some scrapping done.
Okay well, my special day is coming to a close so I'm off to the land of dreams... until next time.

{working 9 to 6...}

does anyone else see the problem with that title?
I started my temporary gig today and I can't express how much I HATE Atlanta traffic. It's almost like everybody in the entire state is on the highway at the exact same time.
Don't get me wrong it was so nice to get out of the house again and go to work but wow.... at least I know what to expect now.
The 9 to 6 thing is really throwing me off... I'm a 7 to 4 kinda girl and I will do 8 to 5 if you really need me to, but 9 to 6. By the time you get home and get settled; guess what? Bedtime. LOL!
So we finish with March and move into April tomorrow. I plan on keeping up with my blogging and hopefully adding pictures again. I realize this page is pretty boring; but right now I'm pretty boring. Hopefully with the start of a new year for me... things will change.

{saturday night life}

I think this is about the busiest weekend I have had since this time last year (not including the weekends when I've been moving).

We started the day pretty late and headed to Dave & Busters for a birthday party. We spent about 3 hours there and of course the little Princess was in heaven. She loved all of the lights and sounds and although she hadn't had her nap she did pretty well. She did finally crash and burn about 2 and 1/2 hours in. We came home so that the adults could rest for an hour or so... and off we went again.

Our next stop was Gladys and Ron's chicken and waffles. I must say I was not excited about the idea of chicken and waffles together and neither was DH. Apparently EVERYONE else in Atlanta is a fan because we waited for over an hour for a table! Myself and DH and my SIL ended up ordering chicken and waffles. I however could not bring myself to eat them both in the same sitting. The waffle was good... but the chicken I had to put in a to go box to eat later.

I of course had to take some pictures to remember the event... as I am sure we will not be returning. At least it's something we can mark off of our "Atlanta To Do List"... I think the next thing that we will tackle on the list will be The Varsity.

{been meaning to...}

Okay so I can't believe that a week has already gone by and I haven't updated. I must admit, it's been busy though and overall it was a pretty great week. I can't believe how fast the month is flying by. Only 4 more days until my birthday; not sure how I feel about it yet.
Anyway, I was pretty excited to find out that I won the theme contest over at Mosh Posh. I can't wait to see what the ladies come up with for the month... they always produce such great pages. If you get a chance check out the kit for April... I am lovin' the new Thickers!!!
Now if I could just win something in the Spring Fling online shop hop it really will be a good month.
We are getting ready to head out of the door but hopefully I will update again very soon, at least 2-3 more times before the week is out. I have been scrapping and I have been meaning to post a couple of layouts but I found out after I finally found the AA batteries that I knew I had purchased... that somehow I have managed to break my point and shoot camera. (it comes on, but won't take pictures... needless to say I am sad). Of course I have been fiddling with it for the past few days trying to make it work, not sure why because I don't know the first thing about digital camera. Wonder how much it would cost to get it fixed - however nowadays I can probably just buy a new one for next to nothing.
Okay... off we go.

{movie weekend}

Somehow I have figured out a way to watch three movies this weekend with hopefully one more tonight. All of the movies were pretty good and one of course had me crying for no reason at all.
I watched; Mirrors (horror), What happens in Vegas (comedy), Made of Honor (girly comedy) and I hope to finish the weekend off with Saw IV (horror - which I have already seen, but I love horror movies). You know sometimes I think I love movies too much but then I come to my senses and think - No Way! Oh and I almost forgot I watched Brown Sugar again.
As for scrapping - I got nothing done. I didn't even take a picture of the few pages that I have been able to complete because I can't seem to find one AA battery in this entire house. Maybe I will have better luck tomorrow because I know there is at least one pack somewhere in the house.
I was able to get my coupon binder all organized and ready for use again. I tried this whole coupon thing before and failed miserably. I just can't wrap my head around stockpiling things. However I am going to try to commit to at least use the coupons to save some money at the grocery store. I mean now a day we all want to save money right?
Okay, well while I am waiting on my movie to download from On Demand (greatest invention ever). I plan on organizing my old scrap sketches and idea pages. If nothing else when tomorrow morning comes I will 95% more organized then I was on Friday.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!!!
