Happy Birthday! …and other random stuff.

((Posting slightly early because we are headed out early tomorrow morning.))

Tomorrow is my best friend’s birthday! …and I am so bummed that I won’t be in town to celebrate it with her. However, I just wanted to give her a little shout out and say,Β  “Happy Birthday, Jennie!” Hope you have a fun and wonderful birthday weekend. Oh, and since you are going to be heading to Palo Alto, make sure to pick up some Sprinkles for yourself!

As for the 20,ooo+ RAK, stay tuned for winners. I know I’m going to be super tired after this weekend, but I still plan on drawing names at the beginning of next week when we get back. …but, before we head off to enjoy some sun this weekend, I wanted to share a few things.

First off, I wanted to share that I was selected to be part of a wonderful group of girls over at Scrap Schemes! I’m so thrilled and honored to have been picked amongst an amazing group of gals. Head on over to check out this challenge site; they’ve got a lot of mad inspiration going on over there, so you’re not going to want to miss any part of it. Check back real soon to see my layout for the next scheme!

Oh, and did I ever mention that I have a secret admirer?! Yesterday, these were given to me “just because”. They sure are pretty. Thank you to whoever sent them my way! πŸ˜‰

I havent gotten flowers in a while.

Just for moi.

For an update on “the kids”, they are doing well. They play all day, which is nice because they nap a lot, hehe! Also, Hilo has not had an accident in our house for FOUR days straight!!!!! Can you believe that?! Just 8 wks old, and I think we’ve got him potty trained! πŸ™‚ I guess it helps that I have tons of behavioral therapy work experience.

Hilo is wearing me out?!

"Hilo is wearing me out?!"

Is it play time again?

Oh, and I just wanted to call Gloria out because I can. So the story goes, the girl thought she would head over the local bike shop and try out one that she wanted. She should have stayed home to finish up some work projects, but no. She sure tried out that bike all right.

Glorias scratched up hands! Yikes!

Gloria's scratched up hands! Yikes!

Not only was both her hands scratched up, she also cut up her elbow and her leg.

Awww, poor Gloria! Hope your owies feel better soon!

Some paper love for the week:

Here’s a wedding card that I worked on for this weekend. The couple’s wedding colors are red and yellow, so I stuck to their color theme. It’s pretty simple, but I still think it’s cute!

The following layout was created for the current challenge over at Dream Girls. It seemed like a great challenge to tackle, so I gave it a shot. I love the feel of this layout — it’s such a fun and silly layout! Here’s mine:

The next ones were done just for fun because I had a ton of my supplies scattered all over the place!

Oh, before I forget — One more thing (for Jennie, of course)… here’s some pictures from your (our) favorite place. Guess the dish!

Do you know what dish this is?

I totally love eating at this place!!!

Okay, off to finish up packing. Tomorrow’s going to be a long day. Hopefully, I’ll be able to update with pictures from the trip at the hotel.
