I am ready for fall. I love everything about fall.
the colors associated with fall....golds, deep browns, greens, dark reds...yummy
the pumpkin farm
being able to wear long sleeves and pants and not be hot (I am ALWAYS hot)
which leads to the windows open and airing out the house
walking in the neighborhood
sat mornings on the front porch with breakfast
I could just go on and on,lol. I love it. not quite here yet...but so close I can feel it's presence haunting my mind
school is in full swing for both boys....hayden is in preschool...last year of it. he still misses his old school, but likes jack and jill. he also goes to speach once a week. great people there.
chase's teacher is great....his schoolmates are fabulous and I just could not be happier there right now.
I serve on the board of Jack and jill and the board of the parent's club for chase's school. I NEED to be involved....I believe that if you want something done right...make sure you're involved,lol.
we are in full planning mode of Barry's Carnival. It will be so awesome this year! YAY!
On the negative note...I have been dealing with a health issue...breast lumps. I wasn't going to talk about it here...but so important to check yourself.
they say the very last day of your cycle....first with no signs of blood...tmi but important to know....check yourself. don't do it too many times...you will grow too accustomed to your lumps and not notice if they grow sometimes.
so. I have two. a tad abnormal. we had the mammogram and ultrasounds. going in for surgery on friday to see what they are. I am feeling positive that all is ok. this is just my wake up call to live better. eat better....more veggies and cancer fighting goods. less soda. less stress. drink only ever oh often. excersise more. spend more time with familiy.
check yourself. don't wait for them to find them. and I am large chested (very) and still found them.....so it can be done.
so I have been dealing with this crap for a few weeks and it is all consuming.
but I am feeling ok with it.
we went camping for our end of summer trip. my mom and aunt. my oldest daughter and boyfriend. brans dad and uncle. the ocean. oh how I love thee. let me count hte ways. Saturday was THE best day I have EVER had at Fort Bragg CA beach. WOW. all I can say. Thank you God!
I am trying to tap into my creative side...made a few new goodies you will be seeing next week.
today I released a little element template pack for bdays. Chase is turning 7 in November...so I am a little preoccupied. They are good for CU with no extra license needed. You get tiff, psd and individual png files. and you get a candy bar wrapper template included...I love those (perfect for hershey bars).
a dollar till sat morning. and you get a little bonus of 4 goodies to go with it till then too..mailed to you seperately.
click here to go to store.
and I made this template to share. I really like this one...I like them all, don't get me wrong. but this one makes me happyyyy!
ok my friends. I have a request. time to update momma's ipod.
tell me some fave songs of yours. I like all types...so lay em on me.
I could also use some good book titles to read....with surgery on Friday..mom is coming up to baby me and watch the boys. I will be able to sit on my porch and watch them ride bikes and read while she cooks/cleans. whooohoooo.
I am almost done w/time traveler's wife. read keeping faith, memory keepers daughter, mermaid chair, autumn leaves, eat love pray, kite runner and a thousand splendid suns for book club. I like mysteries and the likes of deen koontz, kellerman, sandra brown etc. I like it all in books too! so tell me. I haven't gotten into the twilight books yet.
hugs and happy scrapping!
