It's finally here...

Summer that is!

Today was the kids last day of school. Since our school is transisitioning to a Traditional schedule, they will have a full 6 wks off for summer. I am not too thrilled lol. Although, the upside is that I don't have to get up at the butt crack of dawn for a little while. The down side? Well, my sanity will be wavering, more so than it already is *wink*

I am however looking forward to putting my youngest in Kindergarten! What a milestone that will be for me. All 5 boys in school, wow. I've been waiting like 10 yrs for this day to come and it is finally here! I may just end up with a much cleaner house.. don't hold me to that though.

I am not sure what I will do with myself when they are all in school FULL time! It should be interesting.

Anyway, pizza should be here shortly and then I am going to watch a cheesy Disney flick that is premiering tonight with my boys. I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

Saying Hello..

I was thinking I should try to get this thing going again. There's not a whole lot going on over here. The kids are getting ready to let out for school.. last day is Friday.

We are talking seriously about moving back to Reno. We just need to do a bit of saving and planning and it doesn't seem like it's going to happen for a least another year. I am dying to go now though. I really miss it there.

I am back on the Weight Watchers train. I have been for a few months now. I just didn't want to say anything until I knew I would stick with it this time. I never had an issue sticking before but there was just something else going on with me.. I guess I just wasn't ready. But I have been going strong since the end of February and I have lost almost 15 lbs.

I also have a new obsession I'd like to talk about. They are purses, bags, and various accessories. Not jsut any hadbag though.. nope, I like to be special. Courtsey of a thread at DST, I found this wonderful lady named Shelly who makes custom fabric purses, bags, and accessories. I almost immediately made a purchase, which I am pretty sure I posted about here. Well, since then I ordered a matching makeup bag and a key fob. SO cute!

Recently, I got the oppurtunity to help Shelly set up her Zen Cart store, Pink Punk Boutique.
In exchange, she made me some goodies! She made me a clutch purse and a camera strap for my DSLR. The clutch I will be using when I go to a friend's wedding next month. Ipicked fabric that will match what I am wearing and the camera strap.. well, it's just plain CUTE! She just posted pics of the finished product. I can't wait to get my hands on them.

I'm sitting here plotting my next few purchases because this woman is just so darn talented and I like cute stuff! Yeah I know, I'm easy. I know that I want a tote bag, because I found a fabric that is just SO me that I have to have it on something. And now, I'm being enabled into buying a wallet.. which I actually do need.

But seriously, if you love pretty fabric and purses.. go, scratch that. RUN over to Shelly's site and register in the store. Tell her I sent you.
