I'm Finally working again :) :) :) and hoping to get rid of my baby fat that's been adding up little by little after every kiddo ;) I'm just starting with 1 class and next month i should have 3 classes a week. I do have to admit that i am so out of shpae it's riduclious and the class i started to teach is a full hour of punching and kicking the bag... what did i get myself into???? Well, each class i take or teach, it gets a little easier.

Ups and Downs

I'll start out with the bad news... I didn't get a call for MMM. poo!!! I bet you know what I really wanted to type instead of poo! Anyway, i posted the LOs below so at least somepeople can enjoy them :)

AND now for the good news... kinda :) :) :) :) :) We are set to close on our house on Oct 9th!!! I am so happy we are FINALLY getting rid of it, kinda bitter sweet since I lived in that house for over 9 years! plus it was MY first home! THe bad news is that since we've been sitting on it for so long we've come down in price significantly because the market SUCKS! And the buyers totally raped us, but we had to accept! We'll end up owing on it.

And now for the best news (lately).... drumroll ;).... I got an e-mail from PaperArt and they want to publish one of my LOs! Totally made my poopy day when i got the e-mail. And when i say poopie, i mean it litterally! My kids just don't stop going!

Catching up!

UGH! I've been a horrible blogger!!! Well, here's what's been happening in the past MONTH! August flew by!

** Looking to add one more Design Team Girlie to the team! If you're interested read about it here!

** met the fabulous Barb for lunch this weekend here in town, she's so sweet! Went to Kona Bay, my first time there, loooove the place! I snapped a pic of Barb and Caytlynn, love this pic!

** also, met Lisa for dinner to talk about an album I'm going to do for her son.

** I'm so sad to say the my transmission went on my all time favorite car. My purple firebird. It soooooo fit me! It's been a week and a half and my eyes are tearing up typing about it. For anyone that knows me, you KNOW how much I love that car. My brother's going to buy it from me, so at least I can still see it. i know i'm pathetic, you don't have to tell me. On a much brighter note, dh bought me a new truck! It's a Suburban Denali (sp?) and it's HUGE-Gantic!!!! just a few features: DVD player, stadium seating, satelite radio, seat warmers (front and back) and enough space to crop! haha. I'm so tempted to add some stickles, chipboard and throw on a few UL pp and I would be as happy as a pig in mud! Oh, and it's silver!

** Caytlynn turned 4 today - EEEK! AND she starts 4K tomorrow.

** BOTH of the girls have been so incredibly naughty the past 2 weeks, I'm about to rip my hair out! Oh yea, my hair's falling out anyway! I can't stand that! There's hair everywhere!!!! I'm ready to just throw in the towel and shave it all off.

** Cassidy is pulling a CAytlynn. Whenever i put her down for a nap she poops and takes off her diaper. EWW! That happened 4 days in a row, twice in one nap time! SO, for the past 2 days I have been taping her diaper on. works for me! Beacuse of this I've done a LOT of laundry!!!

** I've been working on assignments for a Cantata book :) :) :) I'm finishing up my last one tonight (hopefully!). yea!

** Cullen is 4 months now! He's such a good baby. he's started laughing about a month ago and just recently he loves to blow raspberries spitting everywhere - lol!

** I'm so excited about the new products pouring into the house for the store. It's all so yummy! I just can't seem to use it all, I've been busy cleaning up poo!

*** MMM calls probably started today. i really don't want to get my hopes up, but everytime I think about it, i get the butterflies in my gut!

** Still sitting on the old house, waiting and PRAYING that it's going to go soon. It's been almost a year and not one bite. All that interest we are paying makes me really really ill. It's been almost a year :(

And finally, here's a few pics for your viewing pleasure!!

Here's a LO that I won "LO of the week" at my own site - lol. Honestly, I had nothing to do with choosing it, it was the fab RObyn that chose it :)

I don't really love very many pics of me, but this one of my mini me and me I soooo {heart}!!

This is only one of a few pics i took of all 3 the other day.

and finally, here's Cullen in one of his favorite places to "hang" out!

Impromptu photo shoot and Becky babble

My little man is just to fun to have around! The girlies love him so much, at times, too much! Today he had the cutest smiles, yes, he has multiple smiles! So, I decided to take some pics. A little cropping and editing of the backrounds and these are ready to scrap! I did invite Cassidy to join, but she's been so stinkin hyper lately, she wouldn't sit still! You really need to click on the pics to see these on a larger scale. He's just so flippin adorable, I'm amazed he came from me - haha! So, yesterday was my b-day. My hubby completely forgot! I waited all day to hear those 2 words and nada! So, today I said "did you forget something?". He almost got whiplash looking frantically at the calendar (I should have written it on there) and I said "uh, my birthday!". I wish I had my camera ready, you should have seen the look on his face, complete shock! and his reply "oh $hit!". I guess I can forgive him since he's been working 12-13 hour days! Oh, and he's hot ;) My MIL took me out to eat at my FAV place, Chipolte - YUMMY!!! I've been super busy lately!! Caytlynn had a playdate today, that was fun! Tomorrow my friend Susie is coming over to scrap. It'll be her first time to my new house and to see Cullen!! Friday will be fun, MIL is taking the 2 girls - YIPEE!!!! Maybe I'll get a chance to scrap then! It feels like it's been forever! Saturday, we have a wedding, and still no babysitter - boo! And Sunday hopefully everyone will sleep all day long, including me!

My day at CHA :)

Well, I was there ALL day, yet it seemed to last only a few hours.

The first booth I went to was Prima. That place was dangerous!!!!!!!!!!!! The lovely & talented Tina Freeman helped me spend a LOT of $. Found out she lives near me, so hopefully we can get together and scrap!! I ordered all the paper collections and some coordinating flowers. by then I was WAY over my limit, but still talked myself into ordering some ribbon - YUM!! Then, I ended up in the beading and craft section (I was looking for Paper House) and wasted a lot of time there, not on purpose.

Found Paper House and got to meet the fabulous Wendy Malicho!!!! and did a make-n-take with her and got some photo time in too!!

Met with Kerry, one of the editors of Cantata books, for lunch. I am not a person to know a lot of names, but I did recognize the name Christine Brown, she was there. I guess from what a few of the other girls were saying that there were other big shots there too!! I'm not one on knowing names, but show me one of their LOs and then I know who they are, he he. The urbly talented Debbie Hodge was at the lunchon as well!

Pumped and dumped.

Met up with Debbie and the 2 girlies responsible for me getting into CHA - Tanya and Val from Outrageous Daisy. More photo time!!!

Placed an order with Maya Road, they will be our sponsor for October or November - YEA!!! Got some YUMMY ribbon!! some chipboard letters and the flower chipboard book.

The rest of the time I did make-n-takes. One from THE Karen Foster, got some photo time in with her!!

AND..... THE Stacey from Junkitz, even more photo time! Not only is she cute, but her hubby is too!

Drove home with achy knees, shoulder and back to a little boy and girl that really missed their mommy!! Although, I think Cullen missed my boob more than me ;)

busy, busy, busy

Well, not really, but I will be! I am sooooo stinkin excited, Barb and her aunt are coming over to scrap on Wed!!! We are going to have fun, fun, fun!!!! Hopefully I can come up with something for my MMM entry. I have some done, but am not totally groovin' on them, so I will have to see what else I come up with this month! I'm sure I'll have a ton of rejects to post after I send my 5 in :) Sunday we are packing up the kids and heading out to Gregg and Julie's place. They have 2 boys. Caytlynn had one of them pinned in the corner crying last time they were here. Let's hope that she eases up on the poor guy!
So, we put a pool on the deck and the girls LOVE it! It's been so beautiful lately, just that perfect temp where it's not too hot or too cool. This pic is of Cassidy right after she fell - not a happy camper!! You need to click on it and see it full size to really see her face. Look at the compassion in Caytlynn's face, too precious! Also, here's some scrappy stuff!!! I think this pink one is one of my new favs!

Funny story and more scrappy stuff!

So, the other day I was changing Cullen's diaper. I had my 2 little helpers next to me. Cullen decides to pee pee and make a water fountain! This was the first time the girls witnessed this. Cassidy looks at me after he was done and says"AGAIN! AGAIN MOMMY!!!" I must have laughed for 5 minutes! Cassidy says that all the time when we're watching TV. I think she wanted me to rewind time and watch it again, just like we do with TV!
I took Caytlynn, Cassidy and Cullen out to my mom's camper for the day yesterday. We were in a parade! The girls had so much fun throwing out candy to the other kids. and eating it too! It was an action packed day, no dull moments that's for sure! Exhausting, but fun! Here are a few of my fav pics. I took 71 in all!
Any woo, here's some more FIber Scraps LOs! The last one is the HMITM Challenge #4. I used over 60 stickers!!!
This is the journaling on this first one: Didn't Gammer get the memo? I'm a Girl! As if the outfit "thing" wasn't bad enough, she put my bic in crooked and snapped my picture. Hopefully mommy won't scrap these.

More scrappy stuff!!

Here's some of the stuff I've been working on :) :) :) Other than this, not too much going on! I've been really tired lately - go figure! Today when Cassidy took a nap, I napped too! Usually, I'm on the computer no matter what! Not today!
The first LO is for Fiber Scraps DT.
Second is for the latest dare. The dare was "I'd do anything for love, but I won't do ____". So, I read a similar quote a long time ago and thought this would be funny! I was smiling the entire time! Journaling:

He said "It's me or the scrapbooking" I snapped this picture as you left and scrapped it IMMEDIATELY!!!

It's totally fictional, even the pic is from the internet! The last one is for a contest I"m in and also for the totally cool How Much Is Too Much challenge #3!!

Sore with a capital S

Well, I'm trying to get in a little better shape and want to workout a bit more. Anything that I do is more than the nothing I'm doing now!!! So, I saw my favorite yoga show on the oxygen channel, Inhale. I did almost the entire class, the girls were getting restless towards the end, so I wasn't able to fully relax. Anyway, I didn't try to push myself very far, it's been over 9 months since I regularly did yoga! Well, today I am so stinkin sore! I feel like I got hit by a Mack truck! It will get better and I "plan" to do it more often, but WOW! I hate getting back into working out! I was going through my tivo list today and saw another Inhale recorded and really wanted to delete it! Ha! Like that would really stick it to that show :)
Here's a LO of Caytlynn when she was a little one! Made my own circle stamp for this :)

MIL's b-day present

It's a little late! At least I made her something this year! I'm so bad with dates and planning ahead for presents! UGH! I even get mad at myself! At least she should know better by now! I'm sure this will go into the book I bought for her and brought to work and everywhere else for a few days :) Kinda like a flat Stanley - lol!

Photo shoot

I don't think I could love my little man & then BAM!!! I do :) It was hard for me when I was preggo and found out he was going to be a he. I was just used to my girles and all the fun girlie stuff! And just really comfy with my girls. But, he's so frickin' awesome - love him to little bits and pieces!
So, today I was down 1 kid, Caytlynn was with Gammer, uh, YEA! So I decided to take a few pics of the little one. Cassidy was just itching to get in there and didn't want her to feel left out so I just let her do her own thing and I love how that one turned out. I don't call myself a professional by ANY means, but I think they tured out pretty cute! Especially since I just used a blanket that's about 10 years old! There's a lot more pics, but I really love these. Actually, I have 3 of them with his tounge showing great for a LO titled "this is what I think of my mom taking pictures of me" he he. And thanks to all the sweet comments about my sucky day in my last post :)
