20 Jan - 24 Jan

Yes, yes, yes  I have been slacking. My mother called me up the other day and told me that I needed to up date my blog because I have not done so since the 19th, lol. So this is for my mom and to play catch up AGAIN!!! Haha I am bad at this, BUT I am taking my pictures EVERYDAY so in a way I am doing good too!!

20 Jan:

So this day was not a so hot day for the kids. Danielle, the little girl that I watch was very cranky and whiny all morning. She wasnt feeling to good and CJ or course added to the mess. She took a nap and CJ wasnt making a nose, he wasnt taking a nap at the time. So I go searching for him with my camera in had and this is what I find. My lovely son jumped in his toy box and was playing with the toys left in there that he did not throw out yet, lol. It was wonderful because I got a few minutes to get my head straight from all the whining, lol. Once she woke up from her nap she was feeling a little bit better.
21 Jan:
Not much happened this day. Misha and Lucian came over and we talked and hung out. Once again the little girl wasnt doing to well and was whining. I made us some lunch and then made us some chocolate crinkles (Super Yummy). For dinner we had spaghetti and it came out GOOD!! So good that Misha had seconds and that is like a NEVER for her!! The picture is of CJ looking at his camera, lol. He loves seeing pictures of himself. Oh ya and CJ turned 17 MONTHS too. I cant believe how BIG he is getting. He is not a little baby any more. He is growing up to be a little boy. Awe I am so going to miss it. I guess that just means we need to have another baby, lol. So today was just a relaxing day.
That was the excitement of my day, lol. Just sat here on Cafemom and watching the kiddlings. Played with them and what not. Most of my days consists of checking on Cafemom and getting a little break in when I can. There wasnt anything to exciting going on really.
23 Jan:
Yes!! My excitement for the day!! Lesson that was learned? Always clean up your baking mess right away!! Well CJ and I went to go get something to eat downstairs. He was SUPPOSE to follow me upstairs and NEVER did. I went down to check up on him and this is what I saw!! He has POWDER SUGAR all OVER the kitchen!! OMG he was WIRED for a couple of hours. He thought it was Hilarous. I wasnt to happy about it but couldnt stop laughing about the situation. It was an easy clean up and a lesson well learned, Thanks CJ!!
24 Jan:
Today, today was a fun day. We went to the mall and met up with Misha and Lucian. We dropped off Mishas Braclet at James Avery to get her charms put on her braclet and we got our rings cleaned!! So my wedding ring is all sparkly and PRETTY!!! I got CJ some pants at Gymboree and a shirt. He is growing to fast and can no longer fit into 12mo and we are in 18-24mos but we will see how long that lasts!! The boys had a BLAST playing in the play area. It was SOOO nice to see them having fun and not really having to worry to much. Yes of course there was a ton of kids at one point but that ended as quick as it came along. CJ LOVES the slides, dont know why, but ever since his daddy taught him how to go down them its his favorite thing to do!! So he wore himself so much he slept for about maybe 2hours! I even got a nap in. It was so exhausting
~~~Yay!! I got all caught up now. I hope everyone is happy, lol. On a side note I did get some of my swaps together today AND I made a v-day card. Here is what it looks like:
I like the way it came out. What do you all think? I got the paper piercing from Dee but I am not submitting this card into her challenge I will be making another one to submit to her. Well I hope you all have a fantabulous weekend!!

19th Jan ~~Scrappy Day for me!!!

Well today was such a great day!! Well, besides the fact that CJ woke up super early and I passed out on the couch and he woke me up by feeding me cereal!! All day all I did was scrap!! Boy I sure did need to do it!! I really dont know how many pictures, i mean pages that I scrapped. CJ did AWESOME!! He was a WONDERFUL little son!! But my day was pretty good.
Here is one of my many pages that I got done today, yahoo!!
 Here is my picture of the day. My son being a good little boy and playing in the playpen that I put in the room for the little girl that I watch. He was in and out of that thing playing with some of his toys, I was happy and so was he!! Happy scrappin for me!!

Jan 15th, 16th, 17th, 18th

Alright!! SOOOO I have been bad!! I know, I know I have not kept up with this on a daily basis like I was before. It just kind of is discouraging when you don't even know if anyone looks at it lol. SoOoOo enough of my whining. Here is what has happened the last couple of days!

Jan 15th:

Was a pretty busy crazy day. I was watching the little girl, I watch her Mon- Thurs., but ya I was watching her all day!! There wasn't much going on besides me trying not to pull my hair out of my head, lol. I got my package from ScrapSimply!! I was SUPER excited that I got my scrappin goodies, woohoo. I still have no played with them yet!! I paid all of the bills too!! Yahoo, isn't bill paying like the best thing ever invented? Umm, no! I hate watching our money just disappear so quickly in one day, lol. So anyways I was SUPER tired and LAZY to try and figure out what to make for dinner, plus didn't help that I forgot to put meat down. SOOO I decided to make some top Ramon, healthy and nutritious, lol for dinner. This was CJs first time ever eating. He had so much fun sucking up the noodles. It was to cute! Here is the picture from that day.

Jan 16th:

Thank GOODNESS it was Friday!! I did not have to watch the little girl today until later that evening :( CJ and I took advantage of the day and we went SHOPPING!! OMG I bought so much BUT I thought I deserved it for the week that I was having, lol. Cj and I went ALL over town. We hit up Michael's, Hobby Lobby and Joann's!! He was exhausted by the time we got home. I got some picture frames, paper and yarn at Michael's. At Hobby Lobby I picked up 3 clearance books (2crocheting and 1sewing), magazine and felt ribbon that was on clearance as well. We went to Joann's because they had some fabric on sale for 50% off but I didn't find anything that I liked so I think we left there empty handed which is ok!! When I got home and went on Joann's website I saw that they had sewing patterns for 99cents!! OMG I was sooooo Mad because I thought it was the 17th! The 17th was the last day for the 99cent patterns. Anyways when I realized it was only the 16th I was super happy!! So the little girl got her at like 7pm and both of the kids did pretty well for me. Here is CJ with my yarn that I bought at Michael's.

Jan 17th:

So I was SUPER happy that it was the 17th BECAUSE I was going to go get my 99cent sewing pattern at Joann's!! So the little girl stayed over night because her parents were going out to drink. They were going to pick her up at 10am, which is fine. She did well and slept through the night for me which was AWESOME!! Well I was FURIOUS when it was 11:30 and I couldn't get a hold of either of the parents. There wasn't much that I could do but just wait. I was talking to my friend Stephanie to try to cool down, lol. I was going to La Cantera Mall to meet up with some moms on cafemom and so was she. So we decided to meet up at my place, head over to Red Robbins (YUMMY) and then go to La Cantera. Well the ONLY problem that I had was that I still had the little girl with me. Well her dad FINALLY got her at 12:30!! He said he had 3 alarms set and did not wake up to any. I called and text him I don't know how many times. I was so ANGRY, him being that late messed up all of my errands that I needed to get done for the day. I didn't get to go to the bank like I had needed to so that has to wait til Tuesday because they are closed on Monday. Anyway Stephanie and I went to La Cantera and so no one there. So I let CJ play in the play area and he had a blast going down the slides!! So we left La Cantera and headed over to Michael's. I got more paper and 3 more picture frames for 4.99 a piece. Then I went to Joann's to get me 99cent sewing pattern and didn't get any fabric, lol. It was also my little sisters 13th bday so I picked up some yarn so I could make her a scarf. I went to Wal- Mart and I got my Sewing machine!! So this day ended up being really awesome. Here is my sewing machine.

Jan 18th:

As for today? Its been a chill day for CJ and I. He got up at 7:45am and I was not to pleased with that but oh well. I did the dishes, made breakfast, folded some of the laundry that I have to do and took a nap. So my picture for the day is my son walking around in my shoes!! He looks SOOOOOO cute in them! He actually wears them better then me!!!

So now I will do my best to try and do this daily. Hope you had a good weekend!!

Jan 12th, 13th, and 14th

Well I am going to try and play catch up on my days. I know I am bad for slacking, I just have been busy and drained out these past couple days. So let me play catch up, hehe:

12th Jan
So on the 11th I didnt do much. Misha came over to scrapbook but we were not feeling the creativity so we just did what we could and sat and chatted. So this is the double layout that I did:
13th Jan:
 Well I started my first day of babysitting my husbands friends daughter. It went smoothly they did great. CJ and her got along. So it was a pretty easy day. I dressed CJ up in his Tarheels outfit and he looked OMG so freaking CUTE.
14th Jan:
 So today was day 2 of babysitting. It was a little rough today then yesterday. I got up fine without a problem, I was a littler tired but once I got moving I was up! I had a play date today with Jackie, she is super awesome, and no I did not have a play date with myself lol. But today the little girl that I watch wanted to be held all day, ya not so much my style, lol. I did what I could because CJ would get jealous and what not. So here is a picture of them playing together earlier today:
So that was a quick and easy catch up session I believe. Well I am off of here because I need to head to sleep got to get up early to watch her tomorrow again. See you all later.

Jan 10th~~ Exciting!!

Well for a very uneventful day it was very exciting!! Lets see CJ woke up at 7:30am and DIDN'T go back to sleep. So I got out of bed and I laid out in the loft on the couch with him and I was dozing off and what not (I know bad). Anyways CJ tornado went through the loft, let me tell you there was paper ALL OVER the loft,lol. Good thing that was the only thing he got into. I got onto yahoo messenger and my best friend in the whole wide world was on!! So that made me SUPER happy. We taked for a very long time, its so nice to talk to my best friend!! Oh ya!! I order a Valentine's Day kit from Scrap Simple (click and thats the kit I got) and I am SUPER excited! Its my first thing like this that I have order, YAY! I am still getting excited about it, I know I am a dork, lol. CJ and I were invited to go out to dinner with my hubbys work buddy and his wife!! They asked me to watch their baby girl, like a job, of course I said yes!! So I will be having extra spending $$, YAHOO!!!

So here is CJ and I today Chilling and having some fun. Oh yes I forgot to mention that we were sword fighting with baseball bats today. It was too funny and cute. He watches my husband play his warrior to much on our game, lol.
CJ also got excited tonight because he saw his favorite show come on!!The Upside Down show on Noggin is his ALL TIME Favorite tv show!! He has not been able to watch it because it come on at 10pm and the last couple of months he has been going to bed at 9pm. So whenever he gets the chance to take a glimpse of his show he goes SUPER crazy and gets all excited!! Hope you all had a good day!!

Jan 9th~ Emotional Roller Coaster

Well this morning I think I woke up on the wrong side of the bed, literally. Today has been such an emotional roller coaster for me. I swear everything and anything just felt like it came tumbling down on me and hit my hard when I was talking to my hubby on yahoo messenger.

I woke up feeling crummy so I decided that I would jump in the shower and look all pretty!!
This is the result of me trying to feel better and not be so crummy, lol. I really didnt do much at all today. I met another mom on Cafemom today and talked to her all day. She seems pretty cool! I played with my son and watched tv. After my melt down CJ and I walked to the park and played. That was pretty fun! He was having a blast on the slides. He was trying to climb up the slides. We both went down one and we were both saying "WEEEEE" it was to cute to hear him!! Oh ya and I made DELICIOUS spaghetti tonight, OMG it was mouth watering good to me lol.
Then this evening I really wanted to do some scrapping so I dragged my lazy butt into my scrap room and pulled out a sketch. I am not to sure if I like the way it came out or not.
I think that the red is a little overwhelming for this page. There is a patterned paper behind the red, lol. I cut the red paper to big!! I had fun making it. I hope my creative juices will start working for me tomorrow because that would be AWESOME!! So this was my day, lol. See you all tomorrow.

Jan 8th

Well today was just another day for us, lol. We went to hang out with my friend Stephanie today and it was pretty fun. So I woke up late/early, if that makes sense, this morning. I went down stairs to get CJ some cereal to eat while I take a shower. I was downstairs and I heard a nose upstairs. So I grab his cereal and I go upstairs to see what is going on. This is what I come up to
He climbed into the tub and was playing with his toys. So all I did was just give him his dry cereal to eat. He had fun playing in the tub and stayed in there until I was done with my shower. Other then that today has been a great day. CJ had a good time over at Stephanies. I had a good time and we watched Twilight!!

Jan 7th ~~ Just another day in the Neighborhood!!

Well today was just another day, I guess, lol. I woke up in the laziest moods EVER!!! I had my friend Stephanie come over so I could actually get off my lazy tush and clean the house real quick. So her and her little baby girl Shayla came over to hang out with CJ and I. We had a blast. We didnt do anything but sit around and talk about Twilight and what not. The kids had fun playing with eachother. Shayla is a girl for sure, she talks and talks a lot, lol.
On another note that has nothing to do with the 365 project, I finished my scarf. It came out sooo purdy!!! I love it!! I am going to make two more scarves, lol.
This is what the scarf looks like!! Dont laugh at my picture I dont know how to wear a long scarf, lol.

Jan 6th ~~ Just a lazy day!!

So today was an extremely lazy day!! I mean I didnt want to do ANYTHING at all!! CJ and I didnt get up until 9:50!! Its amazing that we slept in that late!! Chuck got out of class at 10am. It was a short day for them, lol. What a punk he is for getting out early, lol. Anyways we play World of Warcraft (WoW) and he wanted to play out lowbies (low level) today. So this picture is us playing are tiny toons!!!

After spending some "quality time" with my husband I got off and decided that I needed to get dressed, lol. CJ did pretty awesome all day too!! So CJ and I got ready for the day, lol. Not much left to the day when we did get ready. We took a shower and got dressed. I was getting ready and he found my cheapo sunglasses that I got for ordering my contacts, lol. He looked so STINKIN cute with them on! They are not prescription glasses so no worry there, lol.
Here is my stinking cute baby boy sporting his mommies sunglasses that didnt last 30minutes before he broke the arm off lol. But he looks handsome! This is what my day was all about today!!

Jan 5th~ Mission Accomplished!!!

Well, well, was a very tiresome day for me. I had a horrible nights rest, always is when hubby isn't home. CJ woke up and who knows what time, way to early, lol. He fell back asleep in my bed, thank goodness. Anyways I have been saying for the last couple of days that I was going to organize my scraproom. This is what it looked like before I got my hands on it.
Let me tell you it wasn't an easy task trying to tackle this mess down when I was just super tired. I did manage to get it done, needless to say it took all day, lol. My scraproom is all nice an pretty and organized. I want to get some scrapping done thats for sure!! So here are my after pictures of my lovely room:
See its all nice and pretty. We will see how long that will last. Mr.CJ likes to run around in there an make a mess! I know my desk looks cluttered but it really isn't. Those are some projects that I need to get done, lol. Well now I am off to continue my lovely scarf that I am making. I think I will get to some scrapbooking tomorrow. See you all later.

Jan 4th

Well this morning has been an adventure and very lazy day for CJ and I. This morning we got up at 6:15 am (way to early for the both of us) to take Chuck, my husband, to the airport! He left this morning to Florida and we wont see him til some time in Feb. Here is CJ when we dropped him off He really didnt know what was going on.

He was still sleepy and off in his own land. Then he saw his daddy get out of the car and grab his bags. He still wasn't to sure what was going on. Then when only mommy got in the car and we left daddy did he start to cry. He cried for a minute or so and it really broke my heart. He was crying for his daddy.

If you can see in this picture he has a tear going down his cheek :( his daddy will be home sooner then he knows!! The drive to the airport was horrible. It was soooo super foggy with hardly any visibility. It was hard to see and of course it was super dark out.

Sorry I havent updated anything dealing with my scrapbooking. I have not really had time to do much. I did do 2 two page layout on new years eve but that is all I have done. Once I get some scrapping done I will post it.

Update on Crocheting

So as you all know I have self taught myself the ways of crocheting, lol. It has been YEARS since I crochet. Well I did my "scarf" lol and then my next attempt was to do a washcloth. Well I was getting really frustrated and overwhelmed with it. I undid it like a gazillion times and watched a ton of Youtube videos but I was just confusing myself even more!! So on New Years Eve Misha came over to spend the Holiday with us. She was telling me how her mom tried to teach her how to crochet and what not. Well anyways she helped me out!! I finished that damn(sorry about the language) washcloth in like one day!! So here is my master piece washcloth, lol.

Jan 3rd

So today was just a laid back family day! It was beautiful outside as well, got to the 80's. I ran to the post office to send out my late Christmas presents and there was a LINE there, lol. I guess everyone else was sending their late gifts today as well. We went to the dollar store as well to get me some containers to organize my scraproom. CJ looked SOO cute today.
His Great Uncle Jackie and Aunt Vickie got him these overalls. I put them on him and OMG did he look incredibly handsome, lol. Then we got Chucks hat on him and ya he was our little country boy. He had fun playing with the hat.
This was just another day of being lazy and having some fun. If you are wondering if I ever got my scraproom cleaned the answer is no. I was going to do it but then my husband wanted to me to play WoW with him. He leaves tomorrow for a month :(

Jan 2nd

So today turned out to be a great day for us. CJ took a 2hr nap!!! Those are rare now a days, lol. We decided that it was about time for CJ to get his SECOND haircut today!! He got his 1st haircut like the first week of December and he was in need of a Second one. This time we decided to do a little boys haircut. Now I have NEVER seen my son with super short hair. He was born with a TON of hair on his head so I was a little nervous about it all. We went to the haircutting place and we had to wait for an hour. Good thing it was in a shopping center so we just walked around to the different store and checked out what was on sale. We went back to the haircutting place after an hour and it was CJs turn to get into the chair!! To my surprise he did AWESOME. He wasnt scared about the clippers or anything. He didnt fuss with the lady and did very well!! It was a wonderful day for us all.

365 Project!!

So over on Cafemom in Scrapbooking with Friends (SWF) Group there is a challenge going on. Its call the 365 Project!! Basically what it all boils down to is that we take our camera out to take pictures of special gatherings and holiday, but what about the other days. So the challenge is to take atleast one picture a day of what your day consists of. They are just random pictures of whatever that is around you and what not.

So I have decided to take on this challenge and of course it will get scrapped sometime, lol. It seems like so much fun and I ALWAYS have my camera with me where ever I go! So you that check my blog out will see tons of posts from me.

Here are the pictures that I choose!!
Welcome New Years!! This is at the stroke of Midnight!! Sorry its blurry!
This is my husband and I bringing in the New Year!! My husband spent most of the night upstairs playing WoW because I was scrapping with my friend!!
My Bestie Misha and I brining in the New Year. We scrapbook the whole night and that is how we brought in the new year.
This is my lovely son in the morning. This is what I get to deal with on a day basis :) and yes that is how his hair looks like everytime he wake up. He is my little monster and does drive me INSANE but I sure do love him. Bringing in the NEw Year was so much fun. Yes we didnt do anything but stay home and relax. I had my bestie Misha and her son over to join us. We scrapbooked the night away, something that was very much needed. The boy played and had a blast. Meanwhile we are scrapping my hubby was upstairs playing WoW (world of warcraf) talking to his buddies and having fun. There wasnt much for him to do downstairs because scrapbooking bores him to death. Overall our new years was AWESOME!!!
