Sunday we went to the mall in a hopeless quest for black heals and brown boots. Well with my midget size feet I was unable to find either! I was however, able to find a pair of Hanna Montana cowboy boots that would fit nicely. Too bad that is not a good look for a 30 year old woman. BUT, every cloud has a silver lining....We went to Forever 21 and I felt such accomplishment walking out of there with a bag full of goodies for only fourty bucks! I got two super cute sweaters, a scarf and two pairs of earrings. The green pair above is my favorite. I'm really into big colorful earrings these days.
We also signed up for a gym membership at the Y. I was very optimist Sunday when we signed up but all that physical activity is starting to take it's toll on me now. Granted I have never set foot in a gym before, I WILL push through it! HELL, if I can give birth with out an epi, I sure the hell can do this! LOL! I'll keep you posted on my progress.
As for weekend plans, we are going to see a theatre production of Steel Magnolias. It happens to be my all time favorite movie so how could I pass up the opportunity to see it on stage?! I can't wait! It's going to be sort of a girls afternoon...as well it should be!

It just wouldn't be a Mardi Gras ball without parading around with our umbrellas! So that is exactly what we did.
And lastly, can I say look at this dress?! What good is a backless dress with out a good "Hollywood" shot of it! If you think I look smashing, I have to give my girl April props for helping me out with my digs.
So yeah, wardrobe totally provided by Seneca Formals* LOL!

Don't you just hate it when you get a stuffed chicken breast and it's more stuffing than chicken? Anywho...I took this cute little test. Interesting.
|You Have A Type A- Personality|
You are one of the most balanced people around
Motivated and focused, you are good at getting what you want
You rule at success, but success doesn't rule you.
When it's playtime, you really know how to kick back
Whether it's hanging out with friends or doing something you love!
You live life to the fullest - incorporating the best of both worlds
I made this little mini (inspired by Marci Lambert) and I put all my cards (big and small) in this one little mini. It makes me happy. And since I used binder rings, I can just add a tab next year and keep on going! I love scrapbooking!

The frogs are always my favorite! How cute is it that the little cricket is perched on his head?!
Well I am dog tired and gotta jump in my cozy bed for some shut eye. Laters!

The traditional shoe shot.
The intoxicated embrace
The girl friends pic.
The "there's a story there" pic...SO much to say about this one...
1) Notice the stance April has...mid dance stride.
2) See the bling on her ring finger? Earlier in the night that ring was on her right hand. Hmmm.
3) The borderline pleather vest and red snake skin shoes. Nice.
4) The box of "props" just beind the singer...boas and hats included.
5) The binder of song lyrics on the floor in front of the singer...perhaps she didn't know what she was singing.
6) Perhaps the most obvious of all...the eye contact the guy on the left has with April's butt. Again I say...nice.
And finally, the proverbial settle down girls shot. That's a wrap!
So needless to say we can have a good time with very little to work with. We even started a "soul train" circle! Yeah, it was that good! *sigh* Work was hard today. Hard I tell you!

And I've been recording something I'm thankful for everyday. I used random bits of paper items, everything from envelopes and tags to Hambly overlays to make the pages. Each page represents a week in this year. So I will have 365 thing I am thankful for by the end of the year. Speaking of thankful, one of the things I'm totally thankful for right now is that Zane is still sleeping through the night. Really! It has been like 10 days in a row now and he is doing great (as are we!). I really thought all the "kids need structure" stuff was crap...but I was SO wrong. From the day we got him on a schedule of events he has slept through the night ever since. We are all much happier!

Now if you are thinking that he looks all grown up suddenly, it's not your imagination. Trying to figure out what it is?
My boy got his first cut!
He even posed for this adorable picture when we were done! The owner of the store thought it was so cute that she is going to use it in her ads! LOL! That's my boy! It was a great experience. He was so good and the lady didn't even charge us! When we left the salon, we went next door and got him those balloons. The lady gave us the balloons tied to a little bunch of mini bottles of bubbles AND she only charged me 60 cents! So with his fresh hair cut we wanted to take some pictures. We went out to the back yard with the balloons and to blow bubbles and take pictures. It was so perfect! He immediately popped both balloons so we only got two picture with them but that didn't phase him. He was such a little man today.
So the "My First Curl" keepsake is filled now. *sigh*

Guess how many nights in row my son has sleep through the night?....
FIVE! Five nights in a row! That is a huge milestone for us! Yes I realize the kid is like 16 months old and it is rediculous that he hasn't been sleeping through the night since he was like 3 months old but whatever. We are just happy he is sleeping!
Oh and here are some projects I did while at Camp Crop A Lot...I did a bunch...it may take a few posts to show it all!

Sparklers and kisses at midnight!
**Ahhhh, cooking with dear sweet friend was the best. She learned a new dish. I learned a new dish. Everything was delish!
And here they are, the gracious hosts. Thanks again!
James was such a ham...we got to celebrate his 2nd birthday. We also visited the children's museum. Zane was a little small to enjoy it all but it was sooooo cool!
Zane got a good nap in at the park.
And I even made sugarbutt cry! He He! I'm so glad you loved your Christmas presents sugar! Thanks for a wonderful time and being such a gracious host (as always)!
More pics to come!
