Conversation with my Mom

OK so I am sitting at my desk this afternooon eating some soup (which I nearly spit everywhere) and I get an IM from my Mom, yes she is pretty with it for her 56 years, well at least she is after the following conversation: (screen names have been changed to protect the innocent)

Mom: what the heck is bling?
Jennifer: LOL
it is slang for jewelry
Mom: how does jewelry become bling??????
Jennifer: definition from Websters:
bling: noun; flashy, ostentatious jewelry
Jennifer: and what in the hell are you doing that you need to know what "bling" is?
Mom: aren't you the smart one. good thing i didn't go to Hobby Lobby and ask for a bottle of bling!!!!!! Nothing. I just keep running across the word!
Jennifer: you are cracking me up, I am in tears

No Mom I'm really not that smart, I am raising your *eight* year old granddaughter. I am learning so much, just as you did with me. LOVE YA!!!!

We have some teeth....finally

Although you can barely see them in this photo or any other photo I have taken of her lately. Trust me they are there.

In other news we are in the midst of Lindsey writing her autobiography for a school project. All eight years of her beautiful life, we still have two chapters to finish up this week. Spring Break is just around the corner and I am looking forward to the time off.

A little creative time

I had a little time today to create an album of pictures that I have taken of the girls this month. It felt really good to actually complete it. I kept it simple, not a lot of journaling, just pictures and some embellishments. I like how it turned out, so much so that I have challenged myself to take a photo a day in the month of March. I created the album already so all I will need to do is add the pictures and whatever else I want to. I didn't take a photo of the March album but here is a picture of the February album I created today.

I have a few other albums *in progress* so actually finishing one was so nice. I am not sure why, but I like creating an entire album as opposed to one layout. Maybe because you can tell a story with a series of pictures in an album or maybe it is just one of those organizational hang-ups I have. OK, gotta get back to watching the Tigers vs Vols game. GO TIGERS!!!!

Plays hard

This is what Lindsey and I arrived to find when picking up Mallory yesterday.

Miss Mary said she had been playing with a huge stuffed animal dog and the next thing they knew she had fallen asleep hugging the dog. They had just moved the dog from under her before we arrived. The girl rarely naps for very long; much less falls asleep while playing. So *sweet*.

Yep that's right, Mallory knows my name and is not afraid to use it. Tonight, that is all she could say. Lindsey's first words were Dadadadada. So maybe just maybe Mallory will be a Mama's girl. hehe although she is quiet fond of her Daddy. Daddy's and their girls, what else can you say? They have his heart that is for sure. (mine too)

Sneak peek

A very small sampling of stuff I have been working on. Tags, journaling spots for scrapbooking and so much more will be added to my etsy shop soon. Please stay tuned. If you can't wait and want to place an order or see more stuff, shoot me an email and we can work something out.

It's been awhile

Ok I think I am human again. After battling strep, double ear infection, sinus infection and flu mess, I am happy to report that I am feeling much better. These last three weeks have been tough. It is the first time that David and I have been sick at the same time along with both girls being sick too. It hit me the hardest, lucky me. David rarely gets sick so this was a huge deal. Both of us trying to take care of two sick girls and take care of ourselves too. We managed, just like we always do, we are good like that. A great team. Sometimes it is hard not having family close by that you can call on to help out, but we certainly manage and we are better planners for it.
We got hit hard with several storms last night, this morning we are all safe and well. My heart goes out to those who got hit harder than we did.

I have gotten behind on my etsy store launch, I am working double time to get caught up. One thing that is hindering me now that I am feeling better is the terrible clicking sound my hard drive is making, ARRGGG. I have managed to get all of my embroidery designs, my paper designs, photos and all other important stuff transferred to an external back up drive. David has a new pc ordered and on the way. It was time for a new one and we knew it, this just got us moving a little faster.

OK time to get the girls stuff packed for school/daycare and myself ready for work.

But first a photo of my cuties, Lindsey likes reading to Mallory and of course Mallory likes her Big Sis to read to her. Too cute!
