Fun, Friends and Scrappy Good Times

Mom and i had the pleasure of meeting up with my long time online friend Libby and some of the other Rusty Pickle Girls (who are just as sweet as can be) at CKC Kansas City. We had an awesome time helping them in the booth and then going out to dinner. The food at Mimi's Cafe was delicious and i think we all foundered on the vast array of bread they placed on the table before the meal. Of course no dinner was complete without having an appetizer of fried pickles! Thanks for all the fun Libby! I can't wait until we can meet up again! :)

After we got home i got all my things in order so i could have my surgery on Oct 15th. All seemed to go as planned, and am recovering nicely at home. I got a little scrapping done today, and that felt really good!

We have a ton of fun challenges, games and prizes going on at www.memoriesfromtheattic.com for the month of October. Come on by and check it out!

Somebody slap me!

Ok, so i know i've been neglecting my blog a bit.........ok, ALOT! I have finally gotten the cobwebs down and shoooed away all the critters..........sprayed the musty smell with Lysol and i think we are back in business! Yep, that should do it!

Didn't realize i haven't posted since May! Alot has happened since then.

My youngest nephew Tyler celebrated his first birthday.

His brother Jacob had his 4th birthday and started preschool!

I got promoted to Scrap DT Coordinator at Memories From The Attic! (thank you Jeri)

My husband took me to Memphis for our 10th anniversary and got us a super luxurious room at the Westin Hotel.........totally spoiled me! ( i will never look at Motel 6 the same way! I don't care if they do leave the light on for ya!) We had a wonderful time visiting Sun Studios, Graceland and exploring Beale Street.

School has started and my 11 year old Dalton has made it to the 6th grade. He officially outgrew everything he owned, and is now wearing 29 x 29 jeans and a size 6 1/2 shoe! Good Grief! I think i might be raising the Jolly Green Giant!

We spent Labor Day in Branson enjoying the sites and visiting with my Father and Mother In Law. The boys played in the pool while Mother in Law and I went shopping!

Now that fall has arrived, the days are cooler and the leaves are changing........Yesterday was our Pumpkin Fest in town. Lots of good food, friends and activities for the whole day. I hope they do it again next year!

And lastly, apparently the surgery i had last fall was not enough. I am scheduled for another on October 15th and i most certainly hope that it is the last.

Take care all and stop by when you can............i'll try and be better about keeping the cobwebs out of the door so you can get in!
I leave you with a little funny............
