Life on the edge

Photobucket
Sleepy-eyed after staying up all night Saturday taking care of my poor sick husband, I dragged my tired, long-faced butt outside to get the Sunday paper. I eagerly opened it hoping for some good sales but the front page of the Daily Oklahoman greeted me with this headline, "WE ARE ALL GOING TO DIE!" Yikes. I sighed. Put the paper down and walked back to bed.
The most important news is Ben is feeling better! Saturday was our 5th anniversary so I would like to share some of our wedding pics with y'all...
Photobucket
I think I have shared this one before but it has to be my favorite.
Photobucket
My parents at our wedding. They were so cute!!
Photobucket
Me. I wasn't really a blushing bride but a sweaty bride! It was so hot in the little chapel and I was so nervous that when I got to the altar I swayed a little because I felt faint!
Photobucket
Ben and I with our minister behind us--pronouncing us man and wife. We look relieved!
Photobucket
Ben's parents and my parents.
So many wonderful memories of our wedding day. :)

Harrison has been in a really good mood. He met his summer reading goal at the library (read 200 books with mom and dad). He got his blue ribbon and tickets to the RedHawks baseball game. He was jumping for joy!!!!
We also went to Chuck E Cheese last Wednesday with A.T. for a playdate!
Photobucket
Yum! Cheese pizza rocks.
Photobucket
H likes it!
Photobucket
Diet Coke for momma (with lemon slices!)
Photobucket
Hey Chuck E.
Photobucket
Last piece! Time to fight over it!
Photobucket
Chuck E needs a pedi!
Photobucket
:]
I did some organizing over the weekend.
Photobucket
And we did some painting!
Photobucket
H asked me to paint bugs.
Photobucket
Here is his "kung fu painting."
I started a scrapbook page.
Photobucket
Of course, every time I sit at my scrap desk I get interrupted by the phone, doorbell, "Mama!", etc.
We watched this movie yesterday...
Photobucket
Hehe! Who ya gonna call??
And I did some etsy shopping for myself:
Photobucket
I cannot wait for these Elsie embroidery patterns arrive!!
Photobucket
Leaving you with this:
Photobucket
I saw this on snopes.com and I thought it was fake. Um, not! See the
wikipedia article HERE!
So what have you been up to??
Photobucket

Hello lovah...

Okay remember the clip from the new SATC movie where Sarah Jessica says that to a pair of Manolo's?? (I prefer Christain Louboutin's...) But being the scrappy wannabe goddess that I am I say "Hello lovah" to these:
Photobucket
I have been hoarding scrapbooking safe (water based) Sharpies like crazy lately. I love how they write smooth like buttah on any surface, and they don't have that nausea inducing smell!
I have always had a love affair with office supplies even before I became a scrapbooker. Before that I was the teacher who hoarded and guarded her top desk drawer full of pens. And before that I was the middle school kid who picked up pens and pencils off the school floor (not kidding). And even previous to that I was the little girl who started a pen collection--collecting odd shaped pens like the pacifier pen everyone thought was a condom pen or the pen that had a rock collection inside it. Nerdy, but true.
Now I can hide the stockpiling by saying I need it all for scrapbooking. Do they have an Office Supply Hoarders Anonymous or something?!?! Sign me up!!!

The lion is actually a cub! It kept trying to play with Harrison through the glass (or eat him)...
The journaling reads, "Pretty little lion friend if we were in the wild you would eat me..."

Photobucket
Hey all! Drinking my morning joe while watching Morning Joe!
I stayed up all night--have not done that in awhile but I am so not tired. Spent most of my time working on this darn blog template.
So I made this birdhouse Wednesday night for the Altered Challenge at www.thescrapcity.com

Even if you are not into scrapbooking/paper you should check out the gallery/forum there!
The sky was so pretty yesterday~
Photobucket
And here is the first official pic of Froggy:

The trees at the library were damaged in the ice storm we had a few months ago and no one has removed them yet. Just thought it would make an interesting photo.
