Sunday Day 7 End of My Week with Ali

Up early and in the shower!  Headed for church.  Great sermon from Meghan T about the loaves and fish.  Then over to Home Goods for Grand Opening!  Met shopping buddies there and then to Saddlebrooke for brunch!  Yum!  Finished restuffing pantry, played with new stampmaking machine, and folded placecards!  Arran and Amber kept me company on the couch!

Day 6 in Week of the Life

It was a hot one today!  I worked out for about an hour on the eliptical, treadmill, and lifted a few weights.  Headed up to the pool in the afternoon and chatted with friends for about 5 minutes before the lightening started.  And now at 9:18 pm there is a massive thunderstorm going on outside!  Kind of cool but scarey too!  Amber is not happy and I don't know where Arran even is!  Still loving my new Panorama program!

Day 5 Week in the Life

Playing with a new program for...PANORAMAS! So Cool!


 Flowers from birthday bouquet given to me by Ryan. Ezio came with Ryan for a visit, but always spends most of his time under my bed.  Worked out at La Hacienda and captured MSU for my album.  Made some appointments.  Alarm people checked out the alarm.  Saw some texture and color work on some friends' interior walls...liked them both a lot!  Went to "Steak Out" at the Bistro.  Excellent meal of steak, garlic mash, salad, and pecan pie!  Fun night!

Day 4 Happy Birthday to ME! (Yesterday)

Didn' have time to post this on the 28th!Treadmill for 30 minutes!  Text from Kelli Sue, calls from Chelsi, Mike, Ryan, Mom & Dad, Kyle, Julie, Kelly & Cymbre.  Sung to by the mahjongg group and various others (Julie, by far has the best voice!) Ryan and Ezio came to visit.  Had a few meetings, played mahjongg, was taken out to lunch and dinner, and absolutely positively had a wonderful day.  Thank you everyone!  And check out my crafty friend, Kadie...    She posted on her blog a birthday wish and special gift!  Love it!

Day 3 Week in the Life

Slept in and loved it!  Spent 30 minutes on the treadmill. Cleaned up and then headed to Wildflower with Nini and Pat, met Doreen, Beth, Betty, and Colleen there and enjoyed a wonderful Birthday Lunch. Happy July birthday to Beth too!  My pasta dish was oh so yummy and then Jacob (adorable) brought us a Happy Birthday Dessert plate!  The butterscotch pot de creme was my favorite...served with caramel and sea salt!  Shopped at Chico's and Bed, Bath, and Beyond.  Volleyball from 6:30-8:30.  That is always fun!  What a Great day!

Day 2 with Ali Edwards

Door fixed in the garage. Worked out and watched the History channel, learned that 3 of the characters in ZORRO were real, though opposite to what was portrayed.  Nini and Doreen came over to restuff the pantry and then we played in the craft room...pleased to say that Doreen finished her next recipe and started next month's!  Yay!  Then down to Carlotta's for Tuesday Taco night and then shopping at Wal-Mart with the girls....hilarious!

Pantry today and Ali next week!

Alejandro is arriving in an hour or so to redo the very stuffed pantry!  Yay!  Can't wait to have pull outs and a spice rack! ...and to unstuff my stuff!
And next week Ali Edwards is doing her "Week in the Life" .  I am going to try and do it also and have already downloaded the free daily pdf journal forms.  Since it is MY BIRHDAY WEEK, I think it would be a FABULOUS week to keep track of!  Find more info at

Harry and Crafts

Anne and I after yogurt and seeing HP!  Ryan is the photographer!  Loved it!  Anne and I both cried...Ryan was disgusted with us!  So much fun!

Decided to have a crafting day while I sat around waiting on workmen and phone calls.  Working on my Michigan trip back in April.  Have completed 8 pages and loving this SEI kit called Winnie's Walls...even though peach is NOT my favorite color! I guess I was inspired by our Crafting Club meeting yesterday up at the Hacienda.  Kadie, Betty, and I got a lot done, chatted, and watched the storm that was brewing outside!  Thanks ladies for a fun afternoon! (& that INSPIRATION!)
