m & e...

...forever in love.

Rebecca Cooper's new book... fabulous!

I was so excited when our UPS man visited us this evening. I immediately forgot about the laundry, dishes, and mass amounts of cleaning I should be doing, and dove right in to her Real. Simple. Life. I have already done my first-night-with-an-idea-book-scan, and now am starting to really read her commentary. I love how fluid her writing is, and I am so impressed with her designs. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a little inspiration! Also, she has a great blog for her devoted followers!

Have a great Wednesday!

Home at last...

I am so excited to finally be home! A week without my husband was much harder than I had anticipated, so the Reunion last night was great! We left Sunriver at 9:45am, and reached Spokane, WA at 6:15p (I think...) it was a really long trip! After driving to Pullman, we traveled over 500 miles, in one day! Evan was such a trooper, and was so glad to see his Daddy!

Here is Evan in his pool:

Have a fantastic Saturday!

Enjoying the weather... in Sunriver! Today we went to the pool in the morning, and the Bend Outlet Malls in the afternoon... we had so much fun! I discovered a Carter's outlet...I was in heaven! It was so much fun to do some shopping for Evan. I found onesies in 18 months and 24 months...pj's...outfits...I went a little crazy! I did need to get a few things for Evan to wear this fall, and I think he is now taken care of! My mom also get me a couple of tops, and we stopped at DQ for a Moo Latte.

I'll be home on Friday!

In Sunriver...

Hey all! We made it to only took us eight hours! Evan was simply delightful; I couldn't ask for a more perfect little boy :-) It is hot, hot, hot down here...but I LOVE all the trees and nature and beautiful scenery. I am hoping to post pics soon, but no guarantees! Have a fantastic week!

Cindy...if you are reading this: I have your jewelry, and I will promptly deliver it as soon as I get back! I hope you had a fantastic trip!

I am teaching this adorable banner as a class down at Crop, Paper, Scissors on July 29th. If anyone is interested, you can e-mail me, or call Kristi at her store!

Evan's new ride...

My good friend, Kristi, sold us this amazing bike canopy for Evan to use. Mark decided to put it together today and see how it works. I think Evan really enjoyed the ride! He had no problem with the harness (I thought he would hate it!), and he loved to be out and about with Daddy. Thanks Kristi!

We are haning around the house this afternoon, then going to a BBQ with our good friends the Holmes. Have a fantastic fourth!

Fun times w/ daddy...

Lisa B. Kit of the Month June...

I decided to put my Kit of the Month to good use and scrap a few (relatively) old pics tonight... and I am really happy with the results! I used the "Springtime Joys" page, and did a layout on our fishing trip w/ Mark's cousin, Mandy back in '05.

I haven't done a two page spread in ages, so this was very refreshing to me! Hopefully I will have class sample pics tomorrow! Have a great 3rd of July!

Our camera is back!

Mark came home with our camera! I have felt very naked w/out it this past week... I am excited to scrap all his Hawaii photos, but have missed taking photos of Evan! I did make Mark take it out this afternoon and snap a few of our little guy. He used a color diffuser filter... I think the pics turned out great!

Kristi took photos of my projects today, and is going to e-mail them to me tonight or tomorrow. I will post them then! Have a great Monday!

It's late...

...and I am too tired to take photos, edit them, and post tonight. I did finish my banner, though! So I've done five cards, three layouts, and an altered project in the last 24 hours... not bad!!! I am dropping all my projects off tomorrow at Crop, Paper, Scissors, so I will post before then. I'm off to bed... :-)
