Sunday Six

Time for an update in my crazy life. Figured it was a good time to start a weekly recap on Sundays. Lucky for you, you are getting the past month's recap while I listen to the Emmy's.

1) The girls went back to school in style at the beginning of the month. I can' t believe that my girls are in 11th & 5th grade. No more elementary school activities for us. Boys crushing on both my girls. Stylish is in their eyes, not mine. Here is to a great school year for both of them!
2) My Playroom is almost done. Do you see the beautiful bamboo floor? Oh, how does it shine & make my room bright! The baseboard is now in. Still missing some chairs, curtains, a cool clock, and wall art. Those things will come in time. Waiting to find the perfect pieces....
3) Lexi - have you met Lexi yet? She has been part of our family for a little over two weeks now. The girls & I went to the Animal Welfare Society to look at two puppies. We came home with Lexi instead. Lexi is a 2-year old rescued greyhound. She is sweet, lazy, and so very attached to us already.
She is the perfect addition to our family!
4) My 39th birthday was last week. A trip to Wisconsin to scrap with some of my scrappy friends was my birthday gift. Not only was that the best present EVER, but on my birthday I got a fabulous cake with my favorite frosting....bakery butter cream. None of this grocery store yucky stuff, but REAL butter cream. After 17 years, Scott got it right.
I couldn't have been happier.
5) I have been in card making mode this month. Partly due to a request from Bree (jessicabree) at Scrap Freak for a card for the Card Mix & Match class she is doing this month. If you haven't checked it out, you definitely should! There are lots of yummy sketches (by Bree) and examples done by Freaks. I love that she included us a part of this class. I recommend that you check out her Get Meaningful free class blog, too.
Below are two of my cards for the Card Mix & Match.
6) Apple Picking Season is here in Maine. I love this time of year. There are three locally owned apple orchards within a mile of our house. Lily & I took our friends Riley & Porter apple picking yesterday. Then we made a HUGE, delicious apple crisp. Oh, how good the house smelled while that was baking. I'll post the recipe this week.
