okay, forgot about this one...

Just realized that I didnt post this one... her you go.....

Ahhhhhh....... Saturday

Grrr... this scan is really ticking me off...Its a whole lot cuter in person. The scan makes the paper look so dark, but its actually a darker sage green. This was my project last night. Took me FORVER to finish it! I am so unmotivated scrap wise lately.... its like I feel like I am doing the same thing over and over. And over. And over. You get the point. Hopefully I will have some time today to get a couple pages thought up, or started. I am really thinking of "mixing" things up (exciting huh??) and starting my maternity album. Kinda scared to start that though, I already have baby fever, and I dont want to make it stronger.....I am sure Derrick doesnt want it to get stronger either....

Riley has figured it all out. See once she goes to sleep, not EVERYONE goes to sleep. Therefore, why nap? Other people are not napping. She knows she is missing something. Poor little thing doesnt realize what she is missing. Laundry. Dishes. Shower. Laundry. Bottle collections. Laundry. Did I say laundry? Nothing like the smell of downy at 1am, right?? Seriously though, its not all bad. She totally sleeps through the night, has since she was 7 weeks old, but she doesnt want to nap at all during the day. More playtime for her and mommy!!

I am IM'ing Vanessa right now. How cool is it to be able to "talk" to someone in another country? I think that the time difference is what shocks me sometimes. That and all the rest of it.... the language barriers, the thought of all the mountians, totally different environment. I really admire Vanessa and Chandra in that respect. How hard it must be to pack up and move hours and hours away. Its hard for me to be an hour from mom and dad! I guess that I like things that are known. Friends, home, stores, ect. I find it hard to meet new people, and often have to force myself into those situations.....

Well ladies-- (and gents) thats all for the morning... if i do some more pages, I will be sure to post...

So we wore overalls for the first time last weekend. Adorable. Like always! She is to much for me to handle, little cutie!!

So long time no post... well like 3 days no post. I am off tomorrow, so I am up late (is 11:00pm late still??). I am in the "planning" stages of a new page. I did get some of my older pages of Riley out of the box and into an album this week!
Tomorrow I am meeting Dana and Kelly at Daisy Lane. I am soooo excited I can not wait to see all the new goodies from CHA. I am seriously hoping for some BG Urban Couture paper, and some Prima flowers! I will be in scrapbooking heaven!

The Illini won tonight!! So stinking exciting, you have to love it. There is something about Illini basketball that just takes me back. I always think of the Schaffer's and breakfast at the pancake house. That and the chief. You have to love the chief. I dont care what anyone says. Long like the chief.

Well I think that catches you up on the week. Nothing, nothing and more nothing....cant complain!!!

Cute, Cute, Cute!

Okay, are these not the cutest pictures or what? Grandma took us to Carter's today to do some shopping. We got some of the cutest stuff. Dresses, tank tops, onsies, capri-pants, shoes. All adorable. We let Riley try on this little hat. Perfection. Absolute perfection. She was so rotten cute! I cant wait to see her in all of these cute summer clothes!

So the storms did hit last night. It got pretty ugly, but wasnt as bad as it could be. Word has it, we are in for another round tonight. Wonderful. At least Derrick will be home this time!

Back to work tomorrow. Ugg. We have a doctor off this week, so it shouldnt be to bad. I think that we are all going to try to rotate, so everyone gets a day off. I think everyone will really enjoy that.

I really wish I had some new pages to share. Riley is asleep at the moment, so I am thinking I will get the chance to start on at least one before she deciedes to wake up. I will probably hole myself up in my scraproom all night after she goes to bed. I should have done it last night, but I was to tired! In fact a nap now sounds good. Hmmm..... maybe I should sleep while Riley sleeps!
