NWR - Week 3 Layout

Monday, June 30, 2008

Wow - its week 3 already!!! I am learning so much - I hope I can remember it all.... I love the way this layout turned out. In the class there was a blue/white polka dotted paper but I replaced it with the brown butterflyish paper instead - I think it matched my pictures better :) Another layout for the Ireland album. I need to do a page 2 on this one though... Do you like it???


Did everyone have a good weekend? I sure did - we didn't go anywhere for once, LOL. Normally, I love to leave the house and go do things but this weekend I was perfectly content to hang out at home. Saturday I had a new customer (CTMH) come by and we stamped for a few hours - TODAY IS THE LAST DAY FOR THE PROMO, BUY 2 GET 1 STAMP SET FREE, GO TO MY WEBSITE TO ORDER OR EMAIL ME - then I had one of my now 4 downlines stop by to borrow some things for her gathering, it was nice seeing her again :) Then DH and I just hung out and played Guitar Hero and Scene It on the Xbox and some darts and bowling on the Wii... it was fun! Sunday we woke up too early (although DH was up all night doing work stuff) we headed to Target in hopes to get the WiiFit... none came in... ugh... yesterday was also the release of the Aerosmith Version of Guitar Hero, so we had to buy that, LOL! So much fun! Then my 2 crazy nephews come over and we did 3 hours of swimming with a little break in the middle for lunch of course - it was a perfect weather day, IMO. Here are a few pictures from yesterday swimming...

After they left - Tracy crashed on the couch while I wanted to crash... eventually we ended up watching 2 movies - Spiderwick Chronicles which was better than I expected and Good Luck Chuck which was pretty funny :) Well, its Monday evening and I got lots to do!!! Today is my first day with my Online Photography Class and my 3rd week with my Now You're Rocking Digital Scrapbooking class.... off to do my homework, lol. I'll post more when I am done :) TTFN

Wanna take a cruise?

Thursday, June 26, 2008

DH and I just booked our fall vacation - Holland America 7 day cruise out of Tampa!!! We are looking for some more peeps to join us... my parents are going, grandparents and aunt/uncle, trust me you will be entertained. Plus on cruises we all do our own thing, so we are hardly together - there are 4 stops on this cruise - Key West, Belize, Santo Tomas De Castilla, and Costa Maya. The dates are Sunday, November 30 - Sunday, December 7th - what a great christmas gift to buy yourself! My parents cruise during this week every year and love it... great weather! Let me know if you are interested and I can give you my travel agents #. The price we got was $820 per person, there are cheaper rooms and more expensive rooms too... If we get a few more rooms we get onboard ship credit!!! This boat has a casino of course AND a culinary center :)

NWR - Week 2 Layout

Wednesday, June 25, 2008

Oh my! This one took me forever... the layouts are getting more challenging! But I love the way this one turned out.
I will have my layouts done from Ireland in no time - LOL

Crop with Jello Shots?

LOL - I went to a crop last weekend at a friends house and Kelli and Tiffani brought JELLO SHOTS!!! Yes, I think we started the Jello Shots prior to noon and prior to lunch - therefore Kari and Maria are not pictured because they couldn't handle anymore... lightweights!!!!

I didn't get much done and had to leave early for my Great Nieces First Birthday party in Lakeland, which was outside and rained... but I had a great time - can't wait for the next one!!!!

Now We're Rockin'

Thursday, June 19, 2008

I signed up for Jessica Spragues Digi online class called Now We're Rockin' and it started on Monday. I love her classes because each day (for 4 weeks) you get an email with encouragement and stuff then you login online and you start your lesson for the week or day or challenge, whatever is going on... the BB online is great too and you can post your finished layouts online in the gallery - I love it!!! Today was a pretty good day... I got to sleep in, which I needed as the last 2 nights with the boys I did not get enough sleep. I went to lunch with my friend Marcia which I haven't seen in probably a few years - I can't believe I let that much time slip by without seeing her - I hope to be a better friend to her :) Then started working on Lesson 1. NWR is definatly a little more challenging than the beginner class, Up & Running that I took months ago... but I really like the way the layout turned out :) What do you think?!?!?!

Hump Day Wednesday!

Wednesday, June 18, 2008

This week has been full of excitement :) I had a great time with my nephews - helping my mom - while Kim and Kinley have been in the hospital and Kims DH (Tim) has been working. Those boys sure are adorable... I got the giggles one night and Cooper was like - Aunt Kelly, you need to get the giggles out... and starts doing all these hilarous faces of course I kept giggling... they are too cute! I wanted to post a few more pictures that I have taken this week - I am so glad we have a new baby GIRL in the family :)

I am home now. Lots of stuff to catch up on! For example, I recieved a large box of CTMH goodies... remember this month is buy 2 stamp sets get 1 FREE!!! Great deal :)
My new online class started on Monday - need to get caught up on that - I'll fill you in tomorrow!
But right now, I am off to watch the last 2 episodes of Hell's Kitchen on the DVR and ordering chinese food for dinner as my DH is going to be late tonight... TTFN xooxo

Kinley Erin Davis

Monday, June 16, 2008

My new niece was born at 5:42pm (ish) today - June 16th - weighing 7lbs 3oz (bigger than what both boys were!) and 20.5 inches long. We were able to view the csection from the observation window like we were able to with Cooper - I missed the majority of it because I was with the boys in the cafeteria, but got to see them do her footprints and weighing her, so cool!!! Kim (my sister) got the suite room (we have connections!) by 7:45pm - record timing! The boys really love their new baby sister... Cooper just gave her kisses for ever! Here are a few pictures - we didn't stay too long after she got settled as the boys were a bit restless so my mom and I are here at their house and got them to bed about an hour ago... Mom and I will go back tomorrow while the boys are in school and hold that adorable baby girl since we didn't get to today :) Congrats to Tim & Kim Davis xooxox

Universal Studios

Friday, June 13, 2008

We were able to attend a Private Party at Univeral Studios last night! All attendees at the Microsoft Tech-Ed got tickets to get into Universal Studios from 8-midnight for FREE of course - I had to buy a guest pass. It was so awesome - all the concession booths were open plus tables of beer/wine were set up everywhere... everything was FREE - how awesome is that? Just walk up to a stand and get a corn dog, slushie, coke, water, prezel - and you don't have to pay - it was great!!! We hadn't been to US in many many years so basically all the rides were new... let me say the new Simpsons ride is awesome and the Mummy roller coaster was awesome too!!! It was great not waiting long in the lines either... anyways, those 4 hours went by so fast.... a great night until I got light headed and almost passed out in the T2 ride :( seems I may have been dehydrated again... UGH!!!!

Just Tuesday!

So, I am in Orlando with my DH all week as he is attending the Microsoft Tech-Ed at the Orange County Convention Center...

Anyways I've been doing a little bit of scrapbooking this afternoon - check out my set up (see me in the mirrors?) tomorrow i might go down to the pool :) I will also be visiting Ikea this week and hope to see my sister and nephew... maybe I'll even catch a movie by myself!?!??! Anyways, just wanted to say Hi :)

Tonight I was given the opportunity to see Mandisa from American Idol. She performed at Bell Shoals Baptist Church and she sounded great! Her voice is so beautiful that I had goosebumps a few times :) She also gave a lot of testimony and such and her words were so kind and honest - although I wish she sang more... it was a good night :)

Fort Desoto

Tuesday, June 3, 2008

Last weekend my parents asked us to go camping at Fort Desoto. DH and I hadn't been in forever and our weekend was completely free so we decided to go... we got the around 4:30 on Friday and stayed till about 11am on Sunday. Friday night we just chilled and cooked some shrimp on the grill and had smores for dessert, plus our beautiful sunset that we saw from our site right on the water! Saturday we went out to the beach and got a little sun, burgers for dinner and Sunday we had to pack up. The last picture is of my dad and DH swatting bugs - my cousin for christmas last year bought everyone these zapper things to kill bugs and when you get the bug it sparks - the boys were having too much fun with it... We took plenty of bike rides, mom did a little fishing (caught a horseshoe crab, lol), saw dolphins in the water, lots of fiddler crabs, pelicans of course and a few raccoons... we also booked another weekend in Fort Desoto for late September when the weather will hopefully be a little cooler - it was pretty damn hot out there this weekend. Here's a few pictures from our weekend :)
