Hi all...it is a gorgeous thursday here....all is well. I feel muchhhhhhhhh better thank you thank you for your well wishes...they must have worked. Hayden is doing ok too! Now I am looking at my house with eyes not glazed over by sickness saying holy moly what happened batman????!!!! It is soooooo bad. camping stuff (dry food goods, clothes and gear) lay amid coloring activities, showes, blankies, games etc. wowowowoowow. lots to do this afternoon, lol. uh yeah...right ;)

Today going to go put in a transfer for chase's school next year...want to go to the brand spanking new one down the street...especially since 4 of my fave teachers that I hoped he would get are moving there too. Then to the store...then creating the most awesome report board for him...then clean, cook and bath. woohoooooo!

Bran is going to have to work around the clock again the next few weeks. Between the cat bill, the vacation, my dds bill and now the car (you guessed it folks...they think that it is electrical...and that warranty just expired last month wouldn't ya know) we are def in a tight spot finacially. He doesn't want to take money from my family...stupid man pride...that is how my family has always worked. for goodness sakes...we lived all together for years to save on bills and share our lives. But he grew up totally different and I am trying to support him, lol. We will be ok though...we always are. He is an awesome provider and somehow we always pull through. My new mantra is Just keep smiling just keep smiling to the tune from Nemo...where they were saying...just keep swimming just keep swimming,lol.

I miss my mom so muchhhhh. not sure if I said...she and my daddy went on a road trip to celebrate my dad's 60th bday. They have only been gone a few days...and we have talked a couple times a day...but I misssss her. We are truely best buds and I need her, lol. Today is their anniversary and also my grandparents. I wonder how my grandpa is doing without Gran. sighhhh. hugs to him.

let's see...what else. I am so not ready for summer. I hate 110 degree weather. I like 78 degree weather, lol. boy am I in the wrong place. My mom says Bend Oregon was nice...we should look there she says. Hmmmmmmm.

I used my freebie template from yesterday and a ton of Bren Taylor Boone goodies for this layout...I love the brightness. If you look at my gallery lately...that is all you see. Will have to do some more subdued layouts soon,lol.


Oh...thanks for all the emails regarding the sock drawer...glad you liked it!!! I was hoping you would. Not sure if I will do all matching things next time. I might do a hodge podge of goodies. Will have to do a poll.

Speaking of the sock drawer. today is the last day to buy it here on the blog for $2. Tomorrow it is going to the store. You can buy it from the post below!!

I have a freebie for you...so you can take a peek at some of the colors in there,lol. remember...papers, elements and two templates. Glitter and fun.

If you download it leave some love and use it well. Don't forget...link me up to your layouts using my product (kits or templates) to be entered in a drawing for a gift cert to the store. you can email them to tmblankenship@gmail.com or leave them in my comment section.

click here to download...no paper airplanes, spitballs, no using to pick up the pooche's treasure no a walk (ewwwwwwwwww) etc etc.

ok...off to pick up the monkey from kindy...and start our big day.

hugs and happy scrapping
