I give up!

I've tried and tried to be good and keep this thing updated and it never works. I've said it before and I'll say it again, my life just isn't that interesting. I think I may try to do short little posts and not worry about having pictures to put in it. I think that's what keeps me from posting - I feel like I need to have some kind of picture in my posts and something interesting to say. Maybe I can try to overcome that.

I'm not going to bore you with details and try to catch up again. Nothing exciting happened or I would have posted it -hahahaha. Seriously, just the normal every day stuff. Not much going on now either. Since the weather has been mild here lately and we haven't gotten any snow except the mountains, we went searching for some on Valentine's day. We found a little bit but there was really no where for the kids to play. Kind of sucked. It was a nice day though and I did get a few pictures.

Here is what I got from Pete for Valentines:

Purty isn't it? I was really shocked that he remembered at all. He had just come home the day before from California (his grandmother passed away - such a sweet lady - she will be missed) and I know his mind wasn't on Valentine's day but he fooled me.

I made Tyler's class some paper mailboxes and put little candies in them. I also decorated those $1 mailb
oxes from Target for his teachers again this year. They loved them.

I was pretty happy with the way they turned out too. Simple but cute.

And of course I did some scrapping. Here's what I've done lately:

I'm really happy with the direction my scrapping is going in now. I've been wanting to do more and try more and I've been doing that lately. My tastes have changed a lot in what I buy now too. A lot of it has to do with the kit club I joined a while back - Swirlydoos. It is awesome! I'm loving everything from that club. I still enjoy Simply Obsessed although I must admit I don't hang out there much anymore. Not that I don't want to but there's just not enough time in the day. And I probably won't be renewing my subscription either, sad to say. I need to pick one club and I'm really liking Swirlydoos. Lately SO just hasn't had the papers that inspire me much anymore. They're great and Heather is awesome. It's just not the stuff I'd pick out myself anymore unfortunately. I will stay in touch with the girls - thanks to facebook and maybe at some time I'll go back.

Since I'm on the subject of scrapping (I know when am I not?) I get to go to another retreat this year! In April! Woot! Woot! Lori is putting on another Eat, Nap, Scrap retreat at Ft. Flagler and Sarah and I are going again. Last year was my first retreat ever and I loved it! Couldn't wait for her to have another one. So as soon as she sent out the email for the one in April, I marked my calendar, made arrangements with Pete and my mom and paid my fees. Did I mention I can't wait!! Should be a lot of fun.

Ok I'm going to end this now before I start rambling some more and it gets too long and you won't want to read it (see there I go rambling....). Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. And I'd say write again soon but ha - who am I kidding? We'll just have to see what happens.....
