A Girl Just Has To Have Fun

Yep, I decided to give myself a day off. YIPPEE!! I am taking the day to do some fun things at home. I have had sugar cookie dough (recipe courtesy of Heidi) waiting to be rolled out for a day & a half. So yeah, I am thinking lets get this taken care of. My son Taylor has been chomping at the bit for those to be done. I also am going to scrap today. I am feeling inspired by my friend Laura's constant creativity. Look at all her awesome cards that she is constantly just throwing together daily. When I grow up....I want to be just like her. Hahaha I need to finish my 12 on the 12th page as well as, a handful of pictures that I have been playing with on the computer. I discovered the Mosaic Maker on Flickr it is sooooooo much fun. You have to go play with it.

The other pleasure blog that I discovered last night is My Romantic Home. Oh, I am in love with the way she has everything decorated in white with splashes of beachy blue, pale yellow & baby pink. She also refinishes furniture & it is all so incredible. Can you tell I am in awe of her talents. Look through her flickr photos labeled "Around My Home". I wish I could just go thrifting with her. I want her eye for things to just rub off on me. LOL

I am excited to say I finally scheduled the date for the BIG rummage/moving sale. It will be held in town on May 17th. I have a ton to do still. I need to get everything priced. I will be so happy to have a dent in the mountain done after this sale. It will be a breath of fresh air.

I know I am subject bouncing all over the place today. The latte has kicked in. McDonalds in our town advertised that they are giving away free small lattes on friday mornings until 10:30. Can you say Woo Hoo. Yes, free fits my tight budget these days. LOL They have all those new mochas, lattes, iced coffees....YUM It is some sort of war against that other place that has star in the name. LOL It is called the Unsnobby Coffee Promo. I personally have no problem with the other place....just love a good free gift. ;)

One last thing for the day. Two more weeks until Taylor's prom. He has chosen the Zoot Suit Tux. It is too funny but fits his personality to a T. We live in a small town that doesn't allow the kids to have prom in the "big city".....shhhhh dont tell others but they may drink, drive & have sex according to the school district honchos. Well all I have to say about that is "Get Real". If the kids are going to do those things it doesn't take a trip to the "Big City" to get r done. Just my opinion. Anyways, he has been a good kid & has really not asked for too much over the years so I want to give him the tux he wants. He has been fitted for it, the flowers have been ordered & he is deciding where to go for dinner. It should be a fun night for them. Will share photos after the big event. They grow up so fast. *shedding a tear* I still cant believe two fo my three babies are gong to be flying the coop. It was just yesterday that they were toddlers. Grab those kids & hug em & love em....they are gone before you know it & onto a new season in their lives. :(

Ok so I am off to have some fun. I will see you all back here tomorrow to show off my fun day. Enjoy your day with whatever you may be doing. Make it a fun one.

Toodles *Ü*

Good for you! You need a day off! Been thinking about you a lot lately, I hope you're doing alright. I'll continue to send prayers your way. I'll have to check out the shabby blog. I just love pink things! I hope Taylor has a blast!!! He's going to be so handsome in that tux. That picture is so very cute!! The one of Taylor and Tarynn together. Janna, you have three beautiful kiddo's. Hope you enjoy your latte, my friend.

Hugs, Rissa
