Happy Birthday Pepa & Chason

Yesterday we went to my parents for a birthday celebration for my Pepa and cousin Chason. We had a really good time and the food was AMAZING!! I took TONS of pictures of my cousin's little boy, David. He loves to have his picture taken but after a while he was OVER taking pictures and just wanted to cry the whole time. Here is a small sample of what I took.

Hope yall had a great Saturday, it was a beautiful one!

Cork Board!

Well I finished the cork board gift and I think it is so cute! You can buy plain cork boards at any craft store or maybe even Wal-Mart.

*Step One: Take the cork board and paint it whatever color you choose.
*Step Two: Add ribbons, bows, or buttons as desired and hot glue the items down.
*Step Three: The finished product!!! (Looks much better in person)
This was SO easy and fun too!!! Hope you enjoy the idea!

That is what my weekend is all about! Last night we went shopping with my mom and have to tell you- had another "OMG thats Wal-Mart for you" experience! So there were two registers open (with the lights on I might add) and about 3 or 5 workers standing around chit chatting. One of the registers had a line and the other NO ONE! So I turned in and Tee started unloading, still no worker. As we are unloading, one of the workers (who was running their mouth) makes the comment " am not helping them. It is past my time. It is my time to go!" But she walks to the register, of course still stating that her time is expired! I just couldn't believe how rude she was being. Look lady it is not that hard, your time to go, finish checking the person out...TURN YOUR LIGHT OFF...and clock out. Gosh, whoever removed those instructions should be TERMINATED IMMEDIATELY!

Another OMG story: two friends of ours and us went to Wal-Mart one night and the one friend had ten items. He also wanted to look at fragrances (after rounding up an employee) he decided on a sent and was escorted with the bottle to the check out counter. The employee set the bottle on the belt, two other employees standing their running their mouth, one looked at the cart and started counting. *Let me add, there was NO ONE in line or around other than the two employees talking* After counting that he had ten items, plus the bottle of fragrance, he had eleven. The woman says "ah, no I cant check him out he has eleven items" and points to her sign "ten items or less". I KID YOU NOT!! It was absolutely amazing!!

So away from the Wal-Mart stories, yes I have plenty more to share. After wal-mart we had some friends come visit and had a great time with them as usual! Then today we went to my mom's and swam! It was so nice and relaxing. Tonight we are CHILLIN. Tee is playing his wii, that he hardly has time for anymore, and I am blogging and about to work on some gifts! Tomorrow we are going to golf with his fam...cant wait! :)

Next gifts on the list to be made: single photo frames, message cork board, and topiary!!!

I will post pics of the progress and directions in case anyone is interested! I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend as well!! Thank god for those relaxing days!

P.S. sorry this is so long!!! :(

Cheap...Fast...Easy...Cute Gift Idea

Another Christmas present down and many more to go!! Today I worked on a new Christmas gift project. Its four frames in one. This is my first attempt so there are many flaws...but that is what you get with homemade! I have about 6 of these total to make so I am sure they will get better looking the more I do, plus they are all going to be different colors and different patterns. When I say cheap (total about $6), fast (took an hour TOPS), easy (only a few steps) and cute (picture speaks for itself). Thought I would share the easy steps in case you would like to try. Hope you enjoy! :)

Step one: Purchse four frames (any size you want will do, mine were 4X6 I believe). I bought natural so I could paint them. You can buy pre-painted and skip a step! Hint: Dollar Store had TONSStep Two: Paint the frames your choice of color.
Step three: Lay out the frames how you want them to look. I hot-glued them together, you can used picture hangers to screw them together also.

Step four: Layout your ribbon, buttons, etc. to decorate with and secure. I hot-glued these as well.Step five: Dont forget to add the ribbon at the top to hang it by. Be sure when securing this ribbon that you put a LOT of glue or even maybe nail it to ensure its secure.

I have not been able to find much on TV these days that interests me. I mean, trust me, there are a few shows that I REALLY love but not like there used to be. Used to I could sit and watch tv for hours. I googled the cancelled shows list and can not believe ALL the shows that have been cancelled. It is so crazy. I dont understand how good shows that are NOT REALITY get cancelled but they seem to keep ridiculous reality shows that people only watch because you cancelled the others...I just dont get it! My newly fav (or was in the fall), Lipstick Jungle is one of the cancelled shows, among many others. Here is the link if you wanna check on your fav shows!

On a much happier note, my hubby got a new job and I am so happy for him. I have to admit I am a little nervous about the change in his schedule. He has never worked shift work, in fact all of his jobs have been Monday through Friday 8-5. Therefore, the two of us do EVERYTHING together. So it is going to be an adjustment, however I have faith we will do just fine. I am so happy for him and the love we have for each other will get us through the adjustment. Pretty soon, life will feel like nothing changed and we will be used to the new schedule.

My job is....the same. Busy busy busy and enjoying it. I am so happy I have found a job that I REALLY enjoy! Just trying to get my boss to promote me...even though I dont have my degree yet...I CAN STILL DO THE JOB :)

School started back today so Tee and I will be busy writing papers and taking tests! Hope yall have a great week!!!
