Happy Halloween!!! (One Day Early)

Happy Halloween!! Noah will be a pirate- tonight is pre picture taking and some more in the am. Might also run to Toys R Us to get some Christmas shopping done. Meeting a friend at Archivers at lunch. I "need" absolutely nothing. Last night I tried to reorganize a few things and it was a fiasco- I have WAY to much stuff - way to much patterned paper. Once I get it all sorted I will post pictures. I did close my stampin up party last night too- like I needed more stamps!
I'm gonna be better about posting everyday- I'm trying to challenge myself more
Happy Halloween!

Sweetest Day - oops we forgot!

Yes, what you are reading is true- my usual romantic self and my usually romantic hubby forgot Sweetest Day....darn Hallmark Holiday!!
We went up north this weekend to pack away the patio furniture and to turn on the heat - and MY GOD it was freezing up there.
Took Noah to get his 18 month check up- he weighs a whopping 29 lbs and is 33 1/2 inches long - just call him gigantor! He's in the 90th percentile for both. Plus, he learned a new word today- Fish! Although it sounded more like sish.... But when you are pointing to the swimming thing in the water at the Doctors office - you can basically see what he was trying for.
Stopped at the house on Sunday- and we have bricks on the front! Yeah- all the way up!! Plus some garage doors, the outside wiring and our front staircase!!
Have a scrapbook crop with the Michigan girls this weekend - just have to get the house in order- lots of work to be done around here!

Weekend Update

So- Friday night the in-laws moved and Jim went to help them. That left my mom, Noah and I to fend for ourselves- so what's a girl to do- but go to Hobby Lobby!!! Didn't buy much- picked up a few cute papers and some clearance stamps - I am toying with that 50% coupon at Micheals today though!
Went to the in-laws on Saturday to see their new digs- cute house- lots of land - and a pond- real cute area too- lots of horses. Stopped and saw the house- and we have the beginnings of brick work and all the electrical is wired (except for the cable, alarm and the phone). It was nice to still see progress.
We are going up north this weekend - so we will probably stop on the way home.
Veered off WW on Thursday and Friday and then Saturday wasnt a great day either. So- my mom and I made cabbage soup for this week- costs me about 1.5 pts - so hopefully I can make up ground this week - I'm debating about going back to the meetings- it worked the first time- but I did it with someone else- so it was nice to compare....
Happy Monday

Welcome to our Front Door

I would like to say hello to our new front door. That's right- we have a front door, some electrical boxes and some miscellanous duct work from this weekend. We also let Noah walk around in it- his eyes were so lit up- he looked so happy. We also have bricks- so we figure that by this weekend- the outside will be pretty done. Oh! and they layed the septic field..
Also went jean shopping this weekend- and that sucked! Back on the old WW diet. So far- two days down- so good.
Tomorrow is our electrical walk through. Should be pretty fast-
Been windy here- so sleep was not in high quantities last night- maybe I can get a nap later!
Have a good one!
