I don't know that I have ever felt so busy in my life. I think part of my busy feeling is due to having to keep my house looking perfect all of the time. It sucks. never get another chance to make a first impression so I feel like it has to be ready to go at all times. I ordered some frames for pics I took of the girls and they came this week. Usually I would let them sit around for awhile before I put them up, but because of the house thing, I took them out of the package that night and put them all together and hung them they are

This is my room that for 3+ years had no purpose, no it is looking a bit better finally. let's see...why else am I busy? bella is playing basketball and has practice twice a week, girls have church on wed night, my partner at work is missing in action again. I'm not complaining =)....just making excuses for my lack of blogging. So today...I have been a completely lazy bum. It is 5 pm and I have accomplished absolutely nothing very useful. I slept in. I ate breakfast and lunch. I got a free photobook on snapfish from the oprah show which I spent too long making. I made a calendar page for my mom's annual calendar she gives to grandma...I realized that I forgot how to use photoshop since I have been using lightroom so much for my photo editing. It took longer than it should have but it turned out okay I think.

I finally washed my face and brushed my teeth about an hour ago. I played memory with Emma. I have been watching a marathon on bravo about the real housewives of orange county. Interesting group of women...spoiled and shallow. I watched grey's anatomy and I think it is going off of the deep end again...I'm disappointed, they should have learned from their failures last season. Overall, a good lazy day. I think that is all I can think of at the moment. Have a lovely rest of the weekend.

Happy Belated Halloween

Here are a few photos of Halloween....and surprisingly my children are nowhere to be found. I do have some pics of them from the wierd thing they call Beggar's night (Oct 30) that takes the place of oct 31st trick or treating...I just haven't edited them yet. Anyway, J and I went as vampires this year which I found much more appealing than the popeye and olive oyl that we were last year. Here we are with fresh blood and all on our faces....I forgot I was supposed to be evil and not smile.

Me and my friend Dawn the playboy bunny...

J and I again...blood not so fresh anymore

And in other freaky news.....
