Pushing Daisies

Have you seen this show, well Tony & I weren't sure about it at first, more like addicted to it. You know when you pass an accident & can't help but look, that is this show. It is so unique & refreshing (not a reality show, hospital show, or stupid pet tricks, etc) We are hooked. So, Tony comes running into the room telling me it is coming back on TV. I just looked it up-he's right (yeah) Starting October 1st it will be on Wednesdays on ABC. There is one drawback to the show. It is centered around a guy who is a pie maker (owns The "Pie Hole") Every time we watch we end up getting pies the next day-OK, so maybe not a drawback-Yum. So on October 1st we will be snuggled on the couch, pie in hand watching Pushing Daisies. Thanks to ABC for bringing this back to life (ha!). Visit the link to the site & watch an episode or two

Scrapbooking Again

Oh, don't you love when you finally get to do what you enjoy? It's like an itch you finally get to scratch after a long wait. This past Saturday I hosted a scrapbook crop at my house. Lots of food & friends and babies(look at the smirk on Jackson's face-so cute, right?).

I should have taken a picture but I was "In the moment" so I didn't. My living & dining room was filled with scrapbook stuff-a total mess. Well when everyone left I asked my scrapbook buddy & neighbor to leave her tables. I have now taken root with all of my stuff & am actually getting stuff done. I organized:

Patterned Paper
Basic Grey (because this patterned paper is a group all it's own)
sSeet protectors
Digital Photos

Now I still have plenty to do, but I was able to sneak in getting a few pages done

Money Savings

I am so glad I had jumped on board with the $$ savings. Since the economy is so wonderful, it seems everyone is trying to save. Today a lady in the grocery store was giving me pointers & I was offering her some as well. Went to Publix so I could feed my buds at this weekends crop.

Total Bill- $105
Coupons- $40
Final Bill- $65
Baby not crying in grocery- Priceless

We're Moving

OK-I'm sure you are sick of me saying that. We did move, now we are moving back. I love our old house, I love my old street & friends. We moved to the boonies- granted it is nice to look at the golf course but really is it worth not seeing friends. The dogs are miserable and miss their big back yard, we were 15 minutes to the dog park & now we are 45 minutes. We just had new carpet, new tile & a new shower installed in the old house(got a great price & it looks gorgeous-I did spend 10 years in construction so I know the good, the bad & the ugly!) If anyone needs tile work-ask they are great. So, we have almost rebuilt our old house (roof, AC, cabinets, Granite countertops, new appliances, paint, garage door & opener, water heater, tile, carpet, shower) but how come I still have a to do list a mile long? I guess that's how houses work.
