What did we do this weekend?

I am not sure actually LOL My mind is deteriorating lol. I left my pictures from this weekend home although I did manage to remember some layouts ;) Anyway off the top of my head I know we did some Spring Cleaning, I painted the front stoop again, we did some gardening and weeding, I made a great Summer Macaroni Salad, deviled eggs and dry rubbed ribs on the grill ;) We got some more stuff to storage, Charles cleaned up the yard, John built and flew a kite, the neighbors dog had her pups. Is that enough? LOL No apparently not because I know there is much more but it will have to wait for tomorrow when we can spend more time here at the Library. In the meantime, check out my Facebook - where I am also building a Fan Page - and check out my new Layouts and kits!

Last Freebie for now

This one is a quickpage and some word art and it matches my Friendship kit ;) Enjoy!

Happy St Patrick's Day!

I was going to save this one for tomorrow but since I am still feeling sick and do not seem to be shaking it off very quickly I figured I would go ahead and post it today so you all will be sure to get it ;) I still need to pick up my corned beef for tomorrow but at least I remembered my rye bread while we were in Dickson this past weekend.

ANYWAY you want your freebie right? This one is a little large and I did not remember to separate the files sorry. Click on the image to get your download and remember NO FILE SHARING and a little Love goes a long way ;)

OMG It's ANOTHER Freebieeeee lol

I made this mini-kit to do some layouts of Charles & Alex playing football and I thought I would share it with you ;) I hope you enjoy it! As always just clck on the image to be taken to your download and NO FILE SHARING PLEASE!

OMG It's a Freebie!!!!!!

Finally lol. This one is a Valentine's Day Freebie I had made. I know it's late but hey who couldn't use some love charms anytime of the year? I hope you enjoy these. PLEASE remember no sharing, if you think someone would like these send them here to grab them ok? Also, please note that the hearts are on a PSD file not png but they should work just the same if you have a program which works with PSD files ;)

An eventful week or so

So this past week or so was filled with happy things. Both of the boys got to their doctor and we were able to get their meds again! YEAH!!!!!! Finally after more than a month of them not being on them they can function again. They both feel much better now. (and my sanity is slowly returning ;) )

After Johnathan's doctor appointment Thursday morning we stopped at Kroeger which is the only place to get decent Italian bread and we laughed when we saw this in the parking lot:

Johnathan kept saying "OMG is that the real Ghost Hunters?" LOL He was very tickled over the whole thing.

Charles's birthday was the 7th and he was pretty happy with all that he got. Besides the workout bench and weights we had gotten him, we also got him a Razor phone. Then with the money his Grandpa sent him he bought a pair of the steel toe workboots and an mp3 player. Johnathan went to trade in a bunch of his GameCube games and ended up making $62 that he was able to spend! So he bought himself 4 used games and got his brother Resident Evil 4 and Hitman 2 for his PS2 ;) I thought that was pretty sweet when he walked in and said Happy Late Birthday! Charles had already played RE4 but wanted to do it again now that RE5 is out.

If you haven't checked out my Facebook page, I had posted a photo of me standing in front of Kenny Chesney's tour bus! LOL He had been there since the day before scouting out places to film his new video and signing autographs and what not. Obviously I missed it but hey ya know, the tour bus works too pfffttt lol.

On the down side I am sick ugh. It started with just a small fever and a sore throat, then went to no fever but a cough and laryngitis and now it is laryngitis on and off and sniffles and cough. I figure I should be better within the next day or so but in the meantime..... ick lol.

Tonight (Sunday) I made my grilled Salmon with Ginger Honey sauce, homemade fried rice (frozen mini egg rolls) and cherry tomatoes with spinach, basil and mozzarella ;) Yummy. I have pics:

It wasn't until this morning that I realized I never got photos of the finished products except for the tomatoes lol. Oh well, it was delish ;)

It was my first shot at fried rice and I was pleasantly surprised that it came out so good ;) Normally I would have made a salad but we are having serious issues with Kraft and their salad dressings. My family has been eating Catalina dressing for four generations. My Nana ate it, my Mom ate it, I ate it and both my boys ate it. It was the ONLY salad dressing they would eat. Forget French, Thousand Island, Russian, French Country, Italian etc They ONLY ate Catalina, well not anymore. Every "New & Improved" salad dressing from Kraft - IMHO tastes like garbage. They should have left the Catalina the way it was but since they didn't and they have lost 4 generations of customers - I say they should give us the recipe for the original Catalina and any other dressings they supposedly now making new and improved. I mean hey if they aren't going to use the originals then put them in a recipe book and give them to us. Anyway, the boys love mozzarella with tomatoes so it worked out all right in the end as they still got the fresh veggies.

Sunday morning also proved to be good for the boys as our neighbor Bill - the man with whom John works - decided that he no longer needed something so he called John over to pick it up:

LOL Sigh, not something I would have bought myself as I am paranoid about kids getting hurt and breaking limbs but hey, it was a gift so what could I do? It needs some work and a couple of strings but is still functional at this point. Hopefully by summer I will be able to get it all fixed.

A Quick Hello

We stopped in quick here at the Library by Charles' doctor. I had some layouts to upload but apparently they are on my key and not on my computer as I thought they were. Oh well, tomorrow. That is when we will be at our normal Library and more organized.

I have 5 freebies all ready to go so I will be trying to get those uploaded as well so you should have at least a week of freebies available to you soon.

Gotta run for now so I will "see" you tomorrow ;)

Quicky update ;)

How do you get brothers to stop fighting and help the younger one earn a little respect? Give the older one his birthday gift a few days early and let them put it together. Yep Charles & John have been at each other for the past few days to the point that they almost got into a full blown fist fight. Besides the fact that acquiring their meds is still a week off there is the whole "Let's fight for the position of the Alpha Male even though there is already an Adult Alpha Male in the house and we would still only come in second" syndrome going on. Charles being the older brother, feels he is so much wiser, stronger and tougher than his 12 year old brother. Now while it is true that Charles does not have to actually work out to get a fairly "ripped" or chiseled body, John has mass on his side, the boy is thick and when he starts to work out he is going to be huge. But back to the whole thing regarding the Birthday gift - Charles will be 16 this Saturday and as you probably already know he is joining football. He had asked for a weight bench set for Christmas but we couldn't swing it so instead we got it for him for his birthday. Our plan had been to build it for him while he was at school and let him come home and find it but since the endless arguing had started we came up with an alternative plan. John loves to work with his hands and build things so.........we figured if we got the work bench the boys could build it together and John, in turn, could earn a little respect. Everytime they would call us we said "Read the instructions" About 5 times you could hear Charles say "How did you do that? How did you know that?" At one point he was telling John - very loudly - "Tighten this, tighten this!" John with his ever present sarcastic yet smooth attitude replied "I got this, go text someone" ROFLMAO I couldn't stop laughing. So our plan, worked like a charm ;)

That was Sunday night, Saturday was a little annoying because I had been uploading my files to Divine Digital at the Library and trying to get them into my boutique. I managed to get one kit up and had only 2.9 megs left to go to upload the second when we lost power. I had uploaded over 80 megs on that second kit now I have to try it again today. I was so annoyed. I was putting the first kit in the boutique so while I was mildly annoyed that it got interrupted I was more angry that my upload had pooped out on me. I really hate not having internet at home. Either way I have been able to get a few new kits into my Boutiques and as always they are 50% off for the first week so be sure to check back often to get a great deal!

Gotta run for now, I have made a few emoticons that I thought were just too cool and am trying to figure out how to share them with you all ;) Plus, of course, I need to get more designs in my boutiques ;)
