happy weekend

hello all. Had a busy back to where i grew up....tried to go to a baby shower but soon realized that I had no clue where it was =) Eventually caught up with baby and mom after the shower. Saw my sis and family, mom and dad. Went to churchy things today and started my never ending summer project...mowing the yard. Ahhh....the fun has begun. Also started this little mini album. This is all I accomplished, but hopefully I will complete it. Will share that when it is done. That is all for now, have a lovely day.

Snapped this pic of Emma yesterday as she was very busy picking flowers for me. she brought me quite a few handfuls of the lovely weed flowers.

The last of my vacation layouts. Think I covered everything. Now i can finally move on to something else. Glad about that. Have had about enough of them =)

In my unofficial "shall I go to Cambodia" poll, the yeses are far outweighing the nos. Thanks for all the encouragement. have a lovely day.

two days in a row!

hard to belive oh blogger fans, but I am posting two days in a row. Amazing, is it not? And even more amazing, another layout. One more and i should be done with vacation layouts and moving onto something else. here it is.....

On another note. I am thinking about going away this summer for a week. Cambodia to be exact. Why cambodia? Well....take a peek here... Joyce Meyer Ministries . Would be practicing medicine for a week. scary, but cool....any thoughts? an occasional person is excited, some are pretending to be excited, and some have said don't go. I have been approved to go the week of July 22 so at this point I am...but I guess i still am a little frightened. Anyway, just thought I'd share. You are all welcome to leave your opinions too =). Have a good day.
