Saving supper. Literally. Like scraping off the floor kind of saving. Ok, let me rewind. I was still feeling fairly festive and since we didn't get any holiday leftovers, I decided I would make some homemade baked macaroni and cheese and some mini meat pies. So I'm finishing up the steamed zucchini and squash and I had just taken the meat pies out of the oven but the macaroni needed just a few more minutes. So I go to pull the macaroni out of the oven and for some unknown reason, the bubbling hot dish just slipped out of my hands. As I yelled obscenities, it hit the floor, unshattered but face down. Obscenities continued as David ran into the room asking repeatedly if I was ok. Are you sure you're ok? Did you burn yourself? What happened? Are you ok? With a quivering voice I kept replying that I was fine. JUST FINE!
I couldn't believe that I had spent an hour slaving over this completely home cooked meal and I destroy it in seconds! I mean this never happens with the one box wonder quick meals. Why does this have to happen to my delicious golden browned macaroni and cheese?! David insisted it was ok, we would just scoop off the top and eat the part that didn't hit the floor. *Delima* What would you do? Would you eat it?
Well I was exhausted after a full day of work, juggling a toddler and an hour of cooking not to mention I had some hormonal issues going on...so we ate it. And nobody died. Proof that the 10 second rule is true.
Now on to more fun topics...
I had the day off today and I had hoped my mom would watch my little man for a little while so I could run errands and such but since my dad was taking her out on a "lunch date" I decided I would have a lunch date of my own.
I had a delightful lunch at McD's with my sweet little guy! Gotta love that.
Ok, so I'm off to clean, pack, do checklists and get ready to head to the Living Forrest! I'm coming Sugarbutt! I'm coming! Off to TexASS!

As for my blog, yes I do believe I'm cheating on it. But shhhhhh, she might hear you. I've been myspacin'. I hate myspace. Why am I hanging out there? Ok, so I don't HATE it anymore. Now that my sweet hubby showed me how to change my kick a background AND I found a website that has scrapbook themed backgrounds! For real! My back ground is from the Basic Grey line! Check it out. Oh and hubs also showed me how to add music too so I'm all cozy there now. I can't bring myself to blog there though. That would be stepping over the line.

So I did some scrappin' last night. I would have done more but my little mad man was running wild! Here I rocked the Masters Kit. Such a packed kit with a great combo of products this month.
And this is just a fun little layout I did playing with my Hambly overlays and the scaloped border that one of my Red Velvet ornament swappers had on her envelope! Man I love scrapbooking.
So we were feeling festive this weekend (between my icky feeling) and decided to do a little holiday shopping. We tried to go to the mall to see Santa but that was a joke! My child would have been in no condition to photograph after waiting in that line! So we shopped. We also went to a groovy new shopping center in Baton Rouge called Perkins Rowe. They have an Urban Outfitters and everything! That cute little cajun scene above is from there. So here are a few more of my favorite pics from hanging out this weekend with my boys.

It's at Express. It's like $200. I can't justify that! grrrrr.
BUT, we did do a little shopping and had some Greek food (sorry Lindsey...we couldn't wait any longer). A little retail therapy goes a long, long way. I feel much better now. Well still A LITTLE icky. But better none the less!

I used some Hob Lob felt hearts and decorated them with American Crafts felt flowers and Hambly overlays. They are so fun and funky!
This one is a little more exotic and elegant. I used Dove of the East rubons, ribbon and charm to decorate this clear ornament. It was so easy and the result is so professional! Great gifts people!

This weekend we did some pre-birthday celebrating. Saturday we went out to see a live band (no pics...sorry). And I got to catch up with an old friend...HI APRIL! Sunday went eat at a groovy little pizza place and then we went see Cats. It was such a nice evening.
Damn that was a huge piece of pizza!

You see, I have this tiny little 6ft. artificial tree (I usually put it up on a table or a big box to add height) and I change the decorations every year. Yeah, you heard me right, I never have the same theme/colors. Sure I reuse some ornaments from year to year but never the same combo. This year I went with all new, nonbreakable ornaments so my little man can't damage anything. Since I don't buy a tree every year, this is my perk. This is what makes it fun for me. Plus, it's such a great challenge to come up with really cool, inexpensive decorations to make this pitiful little tree look elegant! Oh, did I mention that my gifts have to match the colors of the tree? LOL! Yeah, I'm strange like that. It's like a package deal for me.
*sigh* I love Christmas.

Yes, he is feeding me his cookie! How sweet is that? I know, all kids go through that stage but it is just so precious to capture it...a moment frozen in time forever!
And here we are, me and sugarbutt...thanks for having us over on such a wonderful holiday!

I'm going to do this...I challenge you to do so as well. This will be my 2008 new years resolution. Be thankful. I'll post more as my little version emerges.

This is my scrapjack of Sara Berry. You can't really tell from the pic but it's a clear layout and looks way cooler in real life.
And THIS beauty is my circle journal! It made it's way back to me, thick, full and dripping beautiful pages from my journal buddies! You girls did an awesome job. Gigi...I think yours may be my fav, but I'm still pondering and flipping through it!
I think I need to do some major scrapage tonight. You know scraping is my therapy and I'm having a tough time with Zane. His breathing problems have continued and gotten a bit worse so we are doing some more tests and going to a specialist. The doctor threw out some scary scenarios that I'm trying not to think about right now. I just want to know what is up with my little man and make him all better! On top of that, our Holiday plans have been canceled partially due to Zane's uncertain condition and doctor's appointments and partially due to my husband's grandmother's health. So I'm pretty bummed. At a time when I need comfort the most, it is snatched away from us. A cozy weekend in a cabin in the woods sounds like heaven right now...but alas it is not to be. So I'm thinking a little scrap therapy is in order.
My dear sweet BFF to the rescue...when my dear sugarbutt heard of the holiday cancelation plans, she invited us to her family's house for a big'ol traditional feast! This will be such a treat. Especially since I will have to miss my Thanksgiving in the woods AND I will have to miss her New Years party due to David's work schedule. This will be a treat indeed. Thank you sugarbutt!
