Is it FRIDAY???

Oh my goodness, this day has almost gotten away from me! This week has just flown by.

On Wednesday of this week, I had to take my MIL to the emergency room. She was complaining of chest pains. Fortunately, it's nothing serious. However, she's still there as I write this post. They've told her for the past 2 days that she'll be coming home. But now it's looking like it'll be tomorrow.

Anyway, like I said, we were thrilled to find out that it's nothing serious. And her still being there is actually a good thing. We'd all rather be safe than sorry. Hopefully, they'll be taking her off of some of the medications she's on. So, if you guys get a minute, please say a quick prayer for her.

Ok, what else has been going on? OH...I finally got the funds today to start shopping for my craft/scrapbook room/studio. I am BEYOND excited! I was so happy to find the wire shelves that I wanted were on sale today. So I grabbed two of them and a few other things. I'm going shopping for my paint tomorrow. YIPPY!!! Now, it's only a matter of time before I share the before and after pictures.

Well, guess what I did? I TOTALLY forgot to do a Friday Flower Fix last week! Did ya'll even notice? I think it had something to do with it being the holidays. At least that's what I'm going with :-). SO...bearing that in mind, here's the flower I WOULDA featured last week:


Isn't that so pretty?

And to make sure I don't have to do this again next week..., meaning beg for your forgiveness...here's this weeks feature flower.

Once again, another beauty.

Welp folks, that's all I've got for now. I'm about to finish going through all my 2006 scrapbooking magazines so that I can give or throw them away. YES! I said 2006!!! I just love magazines and I really have a hard time getting rid of them. But every year around this time, I try and purge my old mags. So I'm going to do some reminising and rip out stuff I want to keep....you know, to just make a BOOK that I'll soon have to purge. It's a vicious cycle, LOL.

Ya'll have a great evening and a wonderful weekend. Talk to you soon. TOODLES!!

Prayers will be said for you MIL dear Dawn.
Love the beautiful flowers...delicious color!

LOVED catching up and seeing all the sweet pictures of your Christmas!
Oh how precious is Jayla?? I would love playing with her presents too!
Grace had a pink bathrobe her first Christmas (from my Mom) and she wore it OUT!! Now she has a blue one but misses the pink one. Oh my!
They grow up so fast so I know you are treasuring each moment with Jayla. She is at such a fun age!

Happy new year to you and to all your wonderful family!

Love to your MIL.

Love and hugs,
Sue

My best to your MIL. Sorry to hear she is having trouble. I was ready to chew you out for ignoring us till I read that. :)

I mean, really! Family, holidays, good food, hub with extra days off, dau home from school..... lame, lame excuses for ignoring us. :( So it is good to have you back!

As soon as you finish up your business hanging on from 2006, be sure to come blogging again!! LOL!
