Crazy Fad...

These things are popping up everywhere around here!  I got a phone call from a friend last week that they were on a search for the "silly bandz"...little did I know, these things are all the rage around here!

I'm not sure how I was able to purchase 2 packages at a local toy store that same day.  I was in Hallmark today and there's a waiting list for these things.  She said there's 200 people on the list!!!  What?  For some silly rubber bands?  Why didn't I invent these things!!!!  I was just googling the name to try and get a pic and I found a blog and FB page that's all about silly bandz.  Really? 

Today, Leah came home from school and said that her teacher banned them.  Probably a good thing...starting to see some caddy little girls because of it. 

Have a good one!

Fun Bits are Back!!!

Shall we continue where we left off so many weeks ago....

Fun Bits for the week of April 19th...

  • Hubby and I enjoyed a date night this past weekend!  It's been quite some time and yes, it's sad that our date nights end at 10:00pm so we can come home and go to bed.  We really enjoyed the movie "Date Night" with Tina Fey and Steve Carrel even though we watched it from the 2nd row in the movie theater and my neck hurt afterwards. ;)
  • Since Leah lost her 2 front teeth, she can now touch her tongue to her nose.  We are such proud parents!
  • Brooke has started potty training.  Unfortunately, it's not going quite as fast as it did with Kami and Leah.  Everything is on "Brooke Time". 
  • Leah has started soccer again this spring.  She's playing with the same team as in the fall and they've improved quite a bit.  Leah took the ball the whole way down the field on Sat and scored! 
  • Kami has problems with pronunciation at times.  Yesterday she asked me if I liked peckles which sounded more like pecker...she meant pickles.  One of those moments that I just stop and think...what did she just say?
  • Leah explained to me the other day that a certain bee hanging around on our deck was not a honey bee but a carpenter bee.  It looks like Dad (the entomologist) has been sharing some of those random facts spinning around in that brain of his. 
  • "No" is Brooke's favorite word right now.  Go figure. 
  • I had my first limo ride last weekend - in a Hummer limo no less!  I had a great time with the girls at Heather's bachelorette party!  
  • I shared this pic on Facebook.  Lovin' Brooke's look...the diaper and snow boots!  It is cute how they're cuddling. 

Have a great week!

A couple of cards to share...

Yes, it's been a while.  I scheduled waaayyy to many classes, events and projects together!  That'll teach me!  Blogging's been on the brain again which is a good thing.  I like to blog but sometimes I just run out of things to blog about.  If you have any suggestions, pass them my way! 

On to the cards...if you check out the Cord Camera blog today, you'll see these cards and more.  They all use the Jillibean Core Impressions cardstock which I must say I LOVE! 

This card has the flour tortilla flower on it which was one of my very first designs.  It looks great on the green!  Oh, and I'm loving little mini tags like the Avery white ones.  Stampin' up now has a punch and mini stamps to stamp jealous I didn't think of that! 

Lots of scraps used for this card...loving that butterfly! 

Oooh, I snuck some Making Memories felt flowers on there!  Jillibean needs more felt, huh?  You can't see them but I used lots of 3L foam squares to pop out the Olive Sugar paper and the Sprout. 

BTW, I'm giving away 3 packs of Core Impressions cardstock...check out Bean Talk and the Cord Camera blogs!

Have a great weekend!
