a big HA-HA!

We got so much done in the past few days! πŸ˜‰

This past Friday was my older brother’s birthday, so we drove up to spend some time with the family. We didn’t do anything too extravagant because he was working that day, so we had a small little birthday dinner for him. Let’s just say that a little drink here and there can definitely go a long away. πŸ˜‰

It was a 45 minute way to be seated, so we kept ourselves busy.

To kill time, we all went to Borders. Look what I spent my time reading, haha!

Heres the first drink of the night!

Here's their first drink of the night!

Scotts Fruit Basket Cake - Courtesey of Gloria and Sarah :)

Scott's birthday cake had 28 candles!

Sean jumped into the picture. What a freak! :)

All in all, it was a fun night. I was seriously amused at making Dwight’s head bobble around, haha. Gloria and I picked this up for Scott in NYC when we were out there visiting (we thought it would be one of his birthday gifts since he’s an avid Office watcher):

The Dwight Bobblehead

The Dwight Bobblehead - Doesn't just looking at it make you want to laugh?!

Now, for the good stuff — scrapping updates! I finally visited all of the stores participating in the Sizzlin’ Summer Paperchase! Phew! We drove here and there, and it seems like EVERYWHERE in Northern California. …and let me just tell you that some of these stores are seriously in the middle of NOWHEREVILLE! πŸ˜‰

I’ve decided that my favorite participating scrapping stores were Scrapper’s Depot in Napa and Scrapbook Territory in Berkeley. No, I don’t just like the Napa store because of all of the wine tasting in the area; that’s just an extra incentive. πŸ™‚ The Berkeley store is a favorite because they are totally dog friendly!

Maui and Hilo dont seem to be too interested in Glimmer Mist! LOL!

Maui and Hilo don't seem to be too interested in Glimmer Mist! LOL! They wanted to sniff all of the racks filled with supplies!

Do we get treats in this store just like in the boutiques?!

Heres their new friend - one of the employees dogs!

They met a new friend - one of the employee's dogs! Cute, huh?!

Yesterday, the girls over at These Are a Few of My Favorite Things notified me that I was picked to be on the Catwalk over at Scrap in Style TV. How flippin’ cool is that?! She is definitely so sweet to pick my layout!

Wahoooo!!! :)

Wahoooo!!! πŸ™‚ Pretty cool, huh?!

I promised awhile back that I was going to share the super simple invitation I created for the housewarming. I used some of Nikki Sivils’ papers. With a busy schedule, I wanted to keep it simple and minimal, so this is what I came up with:

I love this line of paper! Isn't it cute?!

…and for those of you who love to read up on the updates of the pooches, I just wanted to share that they are both doing very well. However, today Hilo just went through surgery. The poor puppy has been resting (and crying) all day.

He is now stuck with the cone of shame. Poor, boy. :(

He is now stuck with the "cone of shame". Poor, boy. 😦 At least he's comfortable with the blanket Mommy made for him.

Lastly, the randomly chosen winner to the one year anniversary RAK is… Calia!

Sarah – I love your work and I’m so glad I was introduced to your blog/etsy items! I’m usually a stalker! LOL I love reading your blog and what’s going on with ya and maui! eheheh ^_^
