Project Life January 2013

I love Project Life!
I love the idea of it.
I love how every version is different.
No versions are alike.
I actually wanted to start PL last year,
I ordered an album, page savers & a couple of Becky's collections.
Only problem was stuff was on backorder.
I did not get most of my goodies,
until well into February.
I thought it was too late by then.
I thought I was out.
Then last Fall Studio Calico posted they were starting a PL kit.
I was back in.
It was to start January 2013.
So exciting!
Here is the January kit:
Week one.
Christmas deco taken down and put away.
The tree is out and...
we have our livingroom back!
Also, we went to see the Monster Trucks.
Tickets & pit passes,
thanks to Steves work,
since they are the sponser.
Week two.
I had a bit of a cold to start.
Trying to keep it from not spreading.
Lysol, Lysol, Lysol.
Kitties are (maybe) starting to get along,.
Oh Ya, Pats won the AFC East championship game.
Woo Hoo!
I also paid off my car,
Yay Me!!!
Week three.
Our first icky storm.
Right at commute time.
We found a new game Story Cubes.
Steve found out he has Diabetes.
Not fun.
Pats lost the AFC Championship game.
Life goes on.
Week four.
A healthy week.
New healthy diet.
Vitamins everyday.
Theo had his yearly check up.
All is good.
The weather was really cold.
Single digits.
Creativity was hot.
I also gave blood!
Enjoying my everyday life.
Who knew so many little things
happen everyday & are worth remembering.

Happy Scrappin'!!!!

So here I go,
in no particular order.

1.) Meeting Lori
2.) You'll Shoot Your Eye Out
3.) Happy Father's Day
4.) One of a Kind
                                                                   5.) Beach Boy

Not sure how this happened (haha!),

It's Beginning to Finally Feel Like Christmas

I love Christmas,
but sometimes it takes me a while to get in the spirit.

Christmas music is a great start.
A couple of Saturdays ago was my company Holiday party.
A nice dinner & show.
A Holiday concert, put on by Rockapella.
It was awesome!
Steve & I had a great time.
Oooooh and guess what???
 My White Christmas III TAGS HAVE ARRIVED!
They are exquisite!
Check them out...
Beautiful, right?
Oh...did I mention that I bought a premade gingerbread house?
Just the frame!
Bryant I are definately gonna decorate the heck out of it though!
Yea Baby!!
Here is my December Daily Cover.
I am working on this album.
I am determined to complete it this year!
The kit I got from Kelly Purkey is amazing!
More to share soon!
So Busy!
Happy Scrappin!!

At the Park

Last month B & I took a trip
to the park,
where he used to play as a little dude.
He was probably the oldest kid,
but he loves it there:
 Though he was wearing shorts,
it was very cold that day!

We had so much fun we came back a couple of weeks later.
On a nicer day this time and decided to walk one of the trails
the park has surrounding the pond.
Look at my handsome boy:
He is growing up so fast!
It was a gorgeous sunny day!
Makes me wish that I had a canoe:
A wee bit of rock climbing..
I'm king of the world!
Being silly!
Love it!
and serious..
love this too!
There were markers all along the way,
so we could not get lost!
It really was a perfect day!
Almost there!
Back to the park!
So much fun!
What a great day!
I really enjoy simple days like this!
