My 3 children and I went down for 4 days to my parents cottage, which is about 3 hours away and sadly my dh couldn't come with. See the options were either:
See, I thought my children were in good hands with my dh while I went grocery shopping last Wednesday night...I had a shock of a life time when I got home. I got home, started unloading the groceries when my dh came out to tell me that something happened while I was out...thinking someone got hurt I asked what happened. He said no one got hurt, but that E* (our middle guy) wanted to see his sisters ears and from past pictures you knew that she had about shoulder length hair. Well, he called her out to see me...there she stood with a Mullet, if you don't know what a Mullet is it is a hairstyle that consists of short hair on the sides and long in the back! Then it hit me, SHE'S IN MY SISTER'S WEDDING PARTY IN 3 WEEKS...that is when I lost it...
Here is my middle guy, trying to self soothe himself by cramming as much as he can between 3 big boulders at the beach. Poor guy, felt a little over stimulated this weekend at my parents cottage I think and so he had a hard time with all the changes:

My Nephew Gideon turned 5 the other day, but we had a bday party with all his cousins and a few friends at Nana and Poppy's house. Anyways, the theme was "Space" and so I just HAD to create a really neat card for him...one that he could play with later too :)! So here is what I came up with, but I am thinking one needs a bit stronger magnets for it to really work.

” you are eating your zuchinni, onion and pesto fritatta that you just made and thinking: *these colors are SO pretty, they would make really nice DP!!!* YIKES!!!”
“it’s a beautiful sunny hot day – and instead of going outside and enjoying the weather – you check out the daily challenge and run up to your stamping room to make a card!”
“you prefer buying stamping related stuff than clothes”- GUILTY as charged!
“You realize you no longer have a guest room, in fact it’s become a rubber room.”
“you are at the gym and take off your bra to put on your bathing suit and a PRIMA is stuck to your Bosom!!”
“There’s glitter in the washing machine.”
“You drive hours to go to a new craft store.”
“your ‘manicure’ consists of black ink, FabriTac and glitter.”
“you stalk the employees as they restock the stamping aisle.”
“you would rather give up Chocolate for Lent, than give up stamping.”- for all my fellow Catholics
when you “keep an envelope in your purse with cardstock color chips just in case you see a SS when you are traveling, or just going to Wal-Mart for groceries.”- I DO THIS ALL THE TIME
when “your husband sends you a link to a stamping blog that he ran across when doing research at work! What on earth was he researching!?!?!?!”
“Vacations are planned around class schedules at a stamp store two states away.”
“When going on vacation you scope out where all the local Scrap/Stamp store are and make hubby take you to each one.”
“You can’t invite friends over due to the embarrassment of all of your rubber room stuff overflowing into every room of your house.”
“When your boss asks you if you have an extra stamp in your purse and you don’t know why he would want one. But you ask “what kind” and he says “Um, a postage stamp” Oh yeah there are other kinds!”- In this case CHRIS would be “my boss”!
“you update your artwork blog more than your family blog!”- GUILTY
Please head on over to the Fiesty, Frugal, and Fabulous blog and check out the vinyl wall lettering blog candy they have up for grabs ...they are just gorgeous :)!

*Sniff, Sniff*! The other night my dh came into our living room and asked me if we had any sandwhich meats down in our freezer, I told him not unless he bought some. I then told him that if he wanted me to go grocery shopping that I would go, not really actually wanting to go that night but I knew he needed meats for a sandwhich for work the next day. So, off I went child free (which is nice) to get groceries but then when I got into the van I realized I forgot my reusable grocery bags. I run back into the house and got them, see I am forever forgetting them and I didn't want to pay 5 cents for about 4-5 plastic bags.
