Monday, Monday!

It sure was tough getting up this morning!!

We had a great weekend! The weather on Saturday was pretty nice, in the mid to upper 50's so we were outside all day and did some cleaning up of the garage. We started to gather up our camping supplies, we're taking our inaugural camper trip this weekend! The kids are super excited, Jack wakes up every morning asking if it's Friday!

I bought paint for the kitchen on Saturday, I went with "bone white". If I can muster up the energy, I'll start on that today. I splurged on some new painter's tape called Frog Tape. It is supposed to be non bleeding, it better be for $8 a roll! I've got to take every precaution to not get paint on my new cabinets!

Yesterday we went to one of my aunt's houses. My Aunt Holly is in from California on business so all my aunt's on my dad's side (3 of them) and my parents and me and the kids got together for lunch. I haven't seen 2 of my aunt's since Jan 2006 when my Grandmom died. It was nice spending time together! Here are the kids with Aunt Holly, it's such torture getting them to look at me when they are together!

The kids came home with 2 old toys of their cousin's. Kristen gave Macy a magic set and Megan gave Jack a wooden marble maze set! They were in heaven! LOL

I did a quick layout Friday night. It felt good, it was too long since I've created! Hopefully I can do it again soon! I used the Noggin symbol as my inspiration, can you tell? I used some new Basic Grey and Fancy Pants papers.

Who is watching Rock of Love 2? I'm so happy to see Ambre in the top 2! Daisy drives me a bit crazy! I'm rooting for Ambre (although her name spelling bothers me!) but I'm betting Daisy will win!

Have a great day!

Beautiful layout! Love that background paper. Would have never thought to pair it up w/ the green one but they look so sharp together!

Glad you had some quality, happy time with family. It seems too often as we grow up that we only see our family at weddings & funerals. Nice to have a "non-reason" other than just because. :)

never heard of or seen frogger tape. i've been using masking tape (regular and the blue painter's kind) and the caulking the masking tape. leaves a really clean line. it's just a pain in the butt.

Love the layout! I'm also thrilled that Ambre (annoying spelling and all) is in the top two, but Daisy has had it wrapped up since day one!
