Hey you guys...

Today I won some blog candy from The Scrap Review on Blogspot. I love their little site because they review awesome scrappy stuff all the time. I read it, well every day or at least every new post. I really love this site because I'm a new scrapper. I've only been scrapping for the last 4 months!

Today little miss Harper is 6 months. I need to start planning birthday stuff I feel like. First comes Thanksgiving and Christmas though!!! Can you believe it's already Nov? Geez! Gavin's bday is the 11th, and I still have no idea what I want to get him. My niece Avery's bday is on the 8th, and I think that I'm going to make her something crafty. Maybe her name in chipboard letters to hang in her room... those were 99 cents a piece the other day at HL. I knew that I should've bought some, eek. Oh well. I figure something out!

This past weekend...
Friday - Of course I work, that sucks, but you know I gotta work to maintain my scrappin' habit, and well to pay for other things too! Then I cropped at Suzanne's house, and it was a great time. I made a LO for a GDT spot on Sketchy Thursdays, but that didn't work out, probably for the best though.
Saturday - Gavin, my mom and I took Harper to the Pumpkin Patch in Celina, TX. We took lots of great pictures, and then we headed home to light up the fireplace and watch movies. It was a wonderful day and night!
Sunday - Gavin and I got up and went to Church it was such a great feeling just being there. We ate lunch with his parents at the Prairie House and saw our good friends the Hartfield's. It was a lovely afternoon. Then we went home and just relaxed.

This week we just munched on pizza, watched movies, enjoyed Dancing with the Stars, enjoyed It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and You're Elected, Charlie Brown. Harper had a wonderful few days at school, and tomorrow she goes in for her 6 month check up with Dr. Eckel. Tonight she and I have a lot going on...

She's going to see her granny, well after I call them to watch her, and then I'm going to work on a paper that's due tonight. Then I'm going to make signs for my job for tomorrow's Halloween Party, and I'm going to make Harper's iron on for her costume. Then after that I'm going to make something ARtsy Fartsy for a lady who loves artsy things, but I'm not really that talented at anything other than crafting, so I'm going to make her some cards that she can use I guess :D Hm!

Well.... that's it for today.

I'll fill you in later if anything exciting happens!

Oh I forgot to mention that Harper is going to be SLOTH from the Goonies for Halloween, hence the title! I know Gavin and I are a piece of work but it's going to make for a cute Halloween and lovely spooky scrap pages in Harper's book!

Twisted Tuesday....

Okay, so I forgot to blog yesterday, so here goes...

Friday - Gavin and I were stuck in some major traffic coming home from work Friday evening, so we decided to take the long road. Gavin got lost a time or two, but no thanks to me, haha. I couldn't remember the name of the street he needed to turn onto, so I led him all the way to Pilot Point, haha. Oh well. We both made it home around the same time. Later that evening we took care of Harper as usual. She and I took a nice little bath. Then we watched Land of the Lost with Will Ferrell, and it was pretty funny, though there was some terrible acting at times. Once Harper was down for the night (or at least part of it) Gavin helped me pack up for my slop crop. Then we went to beddy-by and it was a nice peaceful sleep until Harper woke up. Sweet girl.... we need to work on this waking up in the middle of the night for some boobie. You're almost 6 months old, and well it's time for you to sleep ALL through the night (just like the song).

Saturday - I woke up very early to get to my SLOP crop on time to set up. I showered and fed Harper. Then I headed to Wal-Mart to buy some of those plastic shoe boxes. They were $.94, what a steal, so I bought 2. Then I got Scrapbooks Etc, yay, I love that one, and I picked up some labels and chocolate for the crop. I drove by Cheryl Bass's house to pick up my goodies from Scrapbook.com, and I am so glad that I did. I bought the June Bug 6x6 pad, a 6x6 chipboard album, and some alpha/embellies stickers that match the line. This is what I'm using to make my in-law's New Home album for XMAS, don't tell them I'm making it though. It's a surprise :D I stopped at Taco C for a few breakfast tacos, and I got to the church with 10 minutes to spare. Well.... I was there by myself until about 10:30, so I set up 2 tables by myself. They are quite heavy, so I gave up and waited until someone else got there. A group of gals who decided to attend last minute all arrived about the same time, and I'm sure glad I did. They are from the NTXSCRAPPERS group from Yahoo, and they had just joined the site the other day when I mentioned it to our online group. I'm glad I did because it was just me and the gals until about 2:00 when other people started showing up. I gave away 2 little scrappy door prizes, and all the reese's were gone by the end of the crop. Tammy with Christmas with the Cricut blessed us with her presence and lots of goodie ;D I used the her Gypsey for the first time, and I used some of her punches that she brought. She's too sweet and so sharing, I love it! Jill was there to give me some pointers on how to make a chipboard mini-album after all she is the mini-album queen! She was very helpful, and I feel like that I'm off to a good start. The crop ended beautifully, and we all made it home safely.

Sunday - Gavin and I were too tired to get up and go to church, and I feel guilty that we didn't go. I was really looking forward to it. Instead we drove out to Denton to go to the pumpkin patch with my parents, but my mom realized that she had to put in some hours at work, so we just hung out at Target mostly. We bought Harper her first training sippy cup and some 1st Foods baby food. So far she doesn't like peas at ALL, and she will TOLERATE squash, yuck. Oh well. She's getting too big for her little britches. Harper is such a darling, and I just love her to PIECES! We came home and made a pallet on the floor. I fed Harper until she napped, and then we watched the Proposal. It was a cute flick, not my fave though, and my dad stopped by to visit and love on Harper a little. After that we just kind of winded down to go to bed.

Monday - Yesterday I worked of course. I visited Harper at her school during my lunch (I always do this) I got some work done during the day (Mondays are miserable for me at work) then my sweet hubby took me out to dinner at Mr. Chopsticks. It was delicious. We went home and I fed Harper some more squash. Then she played a little while and we watched Dancing with the stars. Harper fell asleep and we laid her in her crib. Gavin slept on the couch while I rubbed his back, and then we all finally laid in bed for a good night's rest. Harper woke up at midnight pretty upset. So I got her out of her bed and rocked her a little bit till she fell asleep. Then I laid her in her swing to rock her some more, and she didn't wake up until 5:30 this morning to eat again. For some reason I'm exhausted though and I got more sleep than usual. Hm...

Now I'm at work and it's Tuesday. I hope to get some goodies in the mail soon. Cheers, and I have a crop this Friday that I'm wicked excited about. It should be great. I need to get a sanding pad for my minialbum and paint dobbers. Then I will start on the first page of Pam and Jim's album :D Yay.

I decided on some XMAS gifts too, but I can only post a few of my ideas on here.
I'll do that later though because I really need to get to working :D


Monday Madness...

So I'm going to do things a little differently on here. I'm going to post like 1-2 times a week because well...I've been bad about posting, so here goes :D

Friday - I got off work a little early and I was able to buy some scrappy stuff with my little girl while she rode around in her little stroller. I got the Fiskar's Apron Lace border punch, MS Classic Butterfly punch, and some AWESOME pp and accessories - Monstrosity & Sweet Marmalade by Sassafras Lass, Nutmeg by Cosmo Cricket, Report Card by October Afternoon. Also...some cute pp that was on clearance and Rock Candy Stickles. Then my awesome Mommy bought me a few goodies from Archiver's in Austin. I was so jealous that she got to go without me :( Wahhh.. Friday evening I hung out with my little hubby and then I scrapped some cards for my neice's and nephew's birthdays.

Saturday - WE woke up early, I know how surprising, me of all people. I played with little Harper. I surfed the internet for a bit. I cleaned up my scrap room a bit. Then while little miss nappied I showered and then we went to Wal-Mart to buy my nephew's bday gift. It's hard to shop for the family who has everything, so we got him the movie Lilo & Stitch. I'm pretty sure they don't already own it, and I know that he and his older brother would love it. They love movies. We had cake, and then we went home for the evening while the yard guys took care of the lawn. Harper's Abuelita Denise and Grandpa Kevin came by with Chinese food, and we all ate dinner together. It was a terribly fun night.

Sunday - We spent Monday morning at our new church home First United Methodist of Frisco. It is such a wonderful place, and Harper actually stayed in the nursery the whole service (well most of the time) the nursery direction Kathering ( I think) walked her around the halls to look at the other children in the classroom because she was pretty fussy as usual. She's going through a phase right now where she doesn't like to be in unknown places with unfamiliar faces (stranger danger)... then after church we saw Zombieland at Movie Tavern. What a hilarious movie!?! I can't wait to own this one on video. There was a lot of gore in the beginning, but it did get better at least. We picked Harper up from her granny Pam's house then we came home and took a nice long nappy. Harper pretty much slept the whole time until 7-ish this morning. It was quite amazing. Thank Heaven for whoever created the battery operated swing. Bless them!

Okay that's all for now folks. I'll fill you in on this week well... later this week!
