So what has happened in the past four months..way too much to mention. It would take forever..so what I decided to do is put up a few pics and update a little bit here and there...so here ya go!
Autism speaks...Did I mention that my team and I raised close to $1800 for our walk back in April? Oh yes we did and look who I met at the walk... ..uh huh...lucky me..I did..move over Susan ;0)
So let's see school ended and we went to NJ to visit Joe's family and see where my DH grew up. Here is a pic at "the shore" which is what New Jersian's and I would imagine other East coasters refer to it ( translation..the beach).
We also took the train to "Philly" and visted the Liberty Bell. We also took a bus tour around the city. Can you tell how much Adam enjoyed it?
3 weeks after our trip I saw MY BOYS...DURAN DURAN. Illyse, Lisa, Dee and I were able to go! Lisa wound up having an extra ticket so my Illyse got to join us. Now I think she may be converting to a true durantard like the rest of us. I was us really close, so I was able to get a lot of great shots. Here are a few.....
A few weeks later we celebrated my b-day and here is the cake my sweeties made me! I am one lucky gal!
Next my good friend, Shauna and I celebrated our b-days, which are just one day apart.:0) We celebrated by going out to dinner and following dinner we saw Tears for Fears in concert!
And...I also had the pleasure of going to CHA Orlando with my friend Jennifer. It was a lot of fun. The show was small,but I didn't mind because we had The Magic Kingdom, Epcot and a lot of other fun things just waiting for us. We..(well I shouldn't speak for her..),I had a ball and I think that she did too. Here are just a few pics...
Now I have been home for about 2 weeks and once again I am leaving with the boys to go to the beach for a week in San Diego. Oops did I happen to mention that during my trip I am coming back home to go to Depeche Mode and then going right back to San Diego. Yep it is true. So perhaps for real..after my trip. I will have more pics to post and really write on this thing. I hope so!
Summer is almost over and school is coming! YIKES..pray for me. ;0) We will see how it goes. I do have good intentions ya know.
Anyway if you are reading this and are in the mood for some blog candy...then hop on over to Scrap it Forward. We have got a great bunch o' goodies for you there! Go check it out!
So there..I did it fellow bloggers. I hope that you let me back into your club ;0)

At CHA, for those of you who haven't heard, I was Quickutz's lucky grand prize winner. I won the brand new Silhouette. This is of course is outstanding and I feel so very fortunate ! Thank you QK !!!
In other news, Jenn and I started a new blog called Scrap it Forward. It is based on "paying it forward" to our fellow man and being crafty while doing it! We of course wanted to combine 2 things that we are very passionate about..crafting and charity/community activeness. So...we found a way! You should definitely check us out! There are crafty challenges posted as well as prompts suggesting ways to "pay it forward".
CHA was so very inspiring and I am so touched that during these tough financial times, that there were still so many companies willing to sponsor us and commit to working on future projects with us. I am so thrilled and excited about it all ! Not to mention the fact that I have so many friends behind us on this. Illyse is desinging for us and we have a whole crew of followers already! Thank you so very much. This means the world to me !
Now I need to organize it all ! My house looks like some kind of "crafty bomb" went off in it! Back in awhile with more updates !
