Hi, 'member me?

I know it's been a really, really long time since my last post. I'm still trying to get settled into our apartment.

As soon as my DH hooks up the printer to the laptop, I'll scan some cards and upload the pics.

Let's see....what's new with JEM? She has started singing her version of "Row, Row, Row Your Boat." She sings the same three verses over and over. She doesn't get as shy now when I ask her to sing. I'm glad she has her Daddy's talent for singing because let's just say that I would never win American Idol. LOL JEM is also counting.....well sort of. She counts from 1-3 and then from 8-11 and skips everything in between. I guess I should no longer feel guilty when she watches Dora the Explorer, Diego, and her other morning educational cartoons.

I read Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and it is the best book in the series, in my opinion. I'm not too happy with some of the characters that were killed, but oh well. I'm sad that it's the last book in the series. I can't wait to see the movie version. It's going to be (or should be) AWESOME!

Hey, 'member me?

I know it's been a REALLY long time since my last post. We found an apartment at the end of June and have since been moving in......slowly. I just got my internet hooked up a couple of days ago. I had no idea how much I missed it until it was reconnected.

I have all my stamping "crap" (as my DH calls it) at the apartment now, so I'll soon get back to my ol' crafting self. I honestly miss stamping up cards for no reason at all and also for swaps.

To top it off, I've caught whatever JEM is getting over. At first I thought her allergies were acting up, with the new move and all. Now, that I'm sick, I'm starting to think that she may have had a little cold. I've been giving her Claritin and she's almost back to normal. As for me, I'm taking Dayquil and Nyquil. I would take Mucinex, but that stuff keeps me up all night.

I'm going to make it a point to update my blog every Monday. So, see y'all on Monday!

A Date?!

Yes, a date! Tomorrow, PJ ( my DH) and I are going on a double date with his brother and brother's wife. We're going to go to dinner and then go have a couple of drinks. The last time we went out was to our friend's wedding. I asked my SIL if we had to get all spiffy and she said that she wanted to take us to a nice place for drinks. I'm actually going to get dressed up! If you knew me, you'd know that I don't dress up. My MIL offered to watch Jazmyn so that we can go out with them.

Today, weather permitting, we're going to go look at house right next to my BIL's that is currently rent-to-own. We need a place of our own ASAP. I'm going crazy already living with my in-laws this long. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate what they've done for us with our whole house drama. We just need our own space.

I'm going to try and upload some pics of cards and ATCs that I've made for some swaps that I'm in on SCS.

Tired of all the green

I got tired of seeing all the green on my blog. So, I decided to change the template to something girly. My favorite color combo is pink and brown. That is why I decided to use those colors in my blog.

I completely forgot to mention a couple of days ago that I acutally (get ready for this) bought a bow.....as in archery! I'm getting a Matthews Ignition. Luckily, I'm still small enough to use a junior bow (AKA kid's bow). It's about $300-$400 cheaper than the bow I bought for my DH. I originally wanted to get a pink bow because I wanted it to be a girly one and I don't plan on going hunting. The owner of the archery range brought up a good point on why NOT to get a colored bow. He said it would be more difficult to sell it, if I did want to sell it later on down the line. So, instead of getting a pink one, I'm going to get a camouflage one. I'm still going to get my pink color though. I decided that for the veins (or feathers as I call them) on the arrows, I'm going to choose pink and purple. Hey, something about it has to be girly! As of now, I don't plan on selling it. I would like to pass it on down to JEM. If she doesn't like archery, then I will sell it. The bow that I tried at the range was set at 40 lbs. I didn't have a difficult time pulling it back. The only thing is that the string/cord hurt my fingers because I didn't have a trigger. Apparently being able to pull back 40lbs. is good. Who knew?! The legal minimum to go hunting is 45lbs. I'm not going to go hunting though. I just want it for target practice. It's not that I don't approve of hunting. I just wouldn't like to go hunting myself.

Okay, enough with the long post. I'll post again real soon.

We've been watching the NBA Finals and tonight was awesome! Our San Antonio Spurs swept the Cleveland Cavaliers. It was an awesome game! I knew Tony Parker was going to get MVP.

Blame it on the NBA Playoffs

I love watching the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Playoffs right now. The problem with that is that it takes away from my crafting time. For instance, right now I'd be working on some swaps that I am in. Instead, I am watching the game and typing on my laptop. I will definitely be getting some crafting done tomorrow.

Go Spurs!

New Links

Okay, I just added the links to a couple of the girls that I chat with on SCS. Both are great blogs. Jackie has some beautiful cards on her blog. MollyDR is the one that I was talking about in my last post.

I also added the links to two of my fave sites: Splitcoaststampers (I practically live on there) and Stamping Bella (LOVE her bellas and fellas).

I'll post again soon.......if JEM lets me. LOL
