Saturday Update and a Blog Giveaway

The kids and I just got back from a walk up to Publix, then stopped at the lake to feed the fish. It was a nice morning - not too hot at all. We live near some lakes and the country club. The kids wanted to fish, but maybe a later time ;-)

Thank you to everyone who commented on my journal entry. I will post another one tomorrow that I finished. I still have not journaled on the page, and I'm still not sure of which style I like. I love the dark vintage colors and I also love the soft shabby chic colors, so I have no idea what my style really is. That is always my problem. I like just about everything, which makes me eclectic. And I don't really like that word, because it immediately makes you look like you are unorganized and love a hodge-podge look. Which I hate to say, is probably true!

Mary, over at wants to get 100 posts by Sunday for a giveaway she is doing on her blog. Just scroll down and leave a comment to participate. She is cleaning out her attic! How fun - but here in FL that would not be very fun because of the heat index in ones attic is literally through the roof and you can only stay up there for around 2 minutes.

New Art Journal Page

You can tell it is close to summer here - we have been bombarded with rain now for a few hours. We definitely need it here, so I won't complain about the rain. Decided to work on an Art Journal project to learn a few techniques in. I figured I would begin by what is going on at the moment, and right now that is thinking about what to do for summer vacation! We have toyed with a few ideas, like going to Clearwater or St. Augustine or Disney or Busch Gardens. We just haven't decided yet. I love to go where the beach is and the hotel is right on the beach so you can shower off and jump in the pool, then go back out to the beach again. I love looking for cool shells and sea glass the most. Fun, fun times! So here is my page. I was going to journal right on it but then I chickened out. Not sure if this will be a journal or not. We'll see if I have the guts to write on the pages!

Happy Father's Day

Just a note to say Happy Father's Day to the Rocket Scientist. He is actually up in Chicago spending time with his dad and brothers, and was so sweet to call this morning to talk with the kids and was all sentimental about it being Father's Day, wishing he was here instead. But this is a special weekend for his dad and his four sons. I know he is glad to have them all there at one time. Wish we were there as well. Happy Father's Day, hun -- We All Love You!!

Recital Time

Last night was Sweet Girl's dance recital. She was in four different numbers which included Jazz, Tap and Pointe. It went very well and everyone in the entire show did a great job. It was nice that friends could come and enjoy it with us. Now she has to practice during the summer and be ready for next year!

Since school has been out...

1. I have two sick kids, the youngest of whom threw up two glasses of orange juice and half a hamburger with ketchup all over his bedroom carpet (TMI) and it will not come up. Used three different cleaning methods including a carpet cleaner and nothing is removing the stain.

2. Sweet Girl has a dance recital in 2 days where she is dancing in four different numbers and now she is sniffling, sneezing and hacking all over. Not good for a piroette!

3. Spent $50 on a throw rug at Target for Little Man's carpet in his bedroom to cover unsightly stain which shows the sitter on Saturday Night just what has been going on in said room.

4. Went to AC Moore to get spray glitter and glitter glue for props used in Sweet Girl's recital.

5. Computer mouse is driving me crazy.

6. College Boy is buying up things (Hollister Jeans) he NEEDS since being home for the summer and eating me out of house and home.

7. Sprinkler system outside decided to gush water all over from the main hub while system is running and we just got that part replaced a few weeks ago.

8. The Rocket Scientist has been out of town while all of this is going on.

And it has only been three days... ugh!!
