Thanks Simone!! :)

Look what my friend Simone sent me!! How cut are these!? Anyway, I got a surprise box in the mail yesterday with a Happy Birthday card and these fabulous books, one for me and one for the kids. My birthday is actually in Jan...but hey, I'll take birthday presents any day of the week...LOL!!
So Jacob promptly took the "monkey book" and scrawled his name boldly on the cover proclaiming his ownership of it. Then he started a summer 'to do" list which so far includes Kung Fu Panda, Sunsplash, Build a Bear, swimming lessons, and going in the Hot Tub...hee hee.

And here's my adorable idea book! It's filled with sketch sheets...and I LOVE IT!!! Thank you so much Simone!! What a happy surprise... :)

Stuff White People Like

This is a hilarious website!! The author is definitely influenced by The Onion. Witty and on the mark. I went through them all down to #1, and I laughed at nearly all of them because I know several "white" people like this! I can say that yes I like my occasional coffee (not a nutcase about it), I like a glass of wine (not a snob...I can drink the 5$ bottle just fine thank you), and yes...of course all of my children are gifted...LMAO!! That was my favorite one.

Mother's Day...

This Mother's Day was really nice. I got up and the kids got me their gifts. Jacob made me a beautiful card and the twins made me some sweet hand prints. The guys had gone to the "paint your own pottery" place and made me a mug, a tea cup, and a soap dispenser! WOW!
Then my mom and grandmother came and had lunch with us. I made a super delish Chinese Chicken Salad. For my first try with the recipe I was really happy with how it tasted and looked. We had that, plus some fresh crunchy sourdough, and Arnold Palmers to drink.
It was nice to spend the day with them. We played the Wii and my grandmother enjoyed watching.
Here's a close up of my salad....I loved it! You can find the recipe over here!

I did this LO last night. One last one for the "My Guy" challenge. Used the Tree House kit primarily on this one.

Hope all you moms out there had a nice weekend! :)

Wedding and a funny...

My cousin got married this weekend! It was a really fun wedding and the weather was perfect! On the way there we stopped to get the boys some food and as we were getting on the freeway there was a guy hitch-hiking. Nick saw him and said "Hey mom, that's guys giving up the thumbs up." Luke piped in with "no Nick, he's giving our root beer floats the thumbs up". HEHEHE. Here's a bunch of photos from our weekend.

Congrats Emily and Kelly!

My Queen of the Crop LO!

I did this LO for my Chipboard challenge over at SYC! I used a bunch of stuff from the Tree House kit, 6 pieces of chipboard from my stash, the crocheted flowers are from imaginisce as well as the button brads which I love, and the ribbon is from SEI and the vinyl overlay is from ScrapWorks! Hope you guys come over and get some of your chipboard used up!!
