Project Life | Week 34

Week 34 done in project life. Was a little more challenging as i used a different divider on the left which changed it all up.

Here is the right side, pics of the girls and Lindy and I in Old Town Pasadena, Richards chicken tortilla soup and a pic message of Richard and Rachie I sent to Lisa showing her we still had peanut brittle and one of me saying hi while Foo Foo was at happy hour.

Left side shows this weeks flowers, a Marilyn Monroe quote, Rachie and I with our drinks, pepper having a snack, a new necklace I received and a pic of Foo Foo and her friends. Still loving the process.

He is creative... I will give him that

I have had a really rough week this week. Lots of ups and downs and a little reflection on myself that I didn't much like. I really could not wait till the weekend. For one I wanted to sleep in. That means past 4:30 am. Well made it to 5:30 am thanks to Pepper. She is staying with us while Garrett & Heather are in Monterrey for her sisters wedding. So got up and started cleaning up my happy place. I can't find my SD card for point n shoot camera. Ugh and as usual I have five projects going, mostly Xmas stuff already. With the hours I work I can't wait to the last minute. Anyway I headed to my tanning appointment, target to grab a couple of items and then homeward bound. I was starving. But what to eat. Richard said there is left over pot roast. I opened my mouth and said I didn't like the first time around (pot roast is just not my thing) why would I like it the second go around.

Well boy was I WRONG. He whipped me up this little beauty.
A little beef tostada. It was crispy and the pot roast was mixed with taco sauce and then he melted the cheese on the meet before putting it on the shell and topped it with lettuce, tomato and avocado. YUMMY. Just what a starving girl needed. Loved it. So now I am off to try to finish a project of too, I think a little Purple Rain might be in order.

Hello Nine

Its early morning Saturday and I am up and adam early, partly because my grand puppy pepper loves to get up before the crack of dawn!! Anyhow heading to LA for some shopping with my twin Lindy and her two girls for back to school and Rachie coming along for some mama and daughter time.

Coming up quick my bowling league. My twin Lindy, her husband Kenny and I are on a team and Hong (little piggy) will join our team. Lindy and I feel our bowling is just not up to par cause we need shirts. The design I came up with is below. Hello Nine is our team name. Why, cause we are constantly bowling 9, where are the strikes UGH. So that's our name. Our shirts are gonna be HOT PINK, not the light pink below. Really love the king pin on the back and cute font for our names on the front. It matches our bowling shoes which are pink and black and of course my ball is Leopard and Lindy's is pink and black flames. I am totally sure this shirt is gonna improve our game!!!!!!!!!! We are getting them from embroidMe and the back is gonna be screen printed instead of embroidered as getting a big design embroidered is not cheap. So I will let you know how they turn out. Can't wait. Have a super fun Saturday.

She is Home

Rachie moved back home last night. Things didn't quite work out for her in Long Beach and she needs to regroup. I feel for her. Being an adult is hard. Its hard to get your foot in the door and make your mark in the world when the door never opens. I am going to use this time to show her how much I love her and how proud I am of her. I know this minor set back really is God's way of pushing her into the right direction. Everything happens for a reason they say.....

Week in the Life | Monday & Tuesday

I finished my week in the life book this weekend. It took longer than I though it would but feels good to get it done. Here is a look at the first two days. For the actual book I labeled it for 2011 and 2012 as I am going to use the same book next year and add 2012.
Hard to see the title page, sorry about that.

I decided not to use a picture for the day title page on monday or tuesday as I didn;'t have one I really liked. The beginning of the week was tuff for me so I did not take as many pictures.
Some shots and some journaling.
Below I tried to write a little but some days were better than others.
Below is Tuesdays title and first page.

Took more pics this day. Thank god for my iphone.
Below is the last two pages.

Week in the Life

I am working on finishing my "week in the life" It's a more intense project life type project I did along with Ali Edwards. I took so many pictures and wrote stuff down everywhere. Putting it all in a book is taking more time than I thought. Hopefully it will be done by tomorrow.!!!!

Hump Day

It's only Wednesday and I feel like I have already worked 40 hours. Well I have worked almost 30 and it's only Wednesday early am. Seems like work is unusually swamped and Tom needing more and mote of my personal attention with the patients he is seeing in the hospital. That puts my work behind causing longer than usual hours. So I will march on or "party on" as Candice likes to say. Tonight is massage night so I have something to look forward to!
