Hey, my name is Amber and I like to blog intensively for a couple weeks then disappear for days at a time, how rude of me! We have been busy with lots of wonderful things and some not so wonderful things. Those not so wonderful things are called molars and Tuesday has at least three that I can feel, and more that look very close to erupting, it has my happy little muffin bursting into tears for no other reason than pain and that breaks my heart! I took all the advice, except for triangle toothbrushes, I can’t find those. But I did just order a few more teethers. I’m trying to get psyched up for our cross-country (mama and baby only) plane trip. We’re also rocking the amber teething necklace, frozen washcloths, teething tablets, lots of nursing, distraction, and eating soothing things. Anything else?
Lots of good things have been going on as well:
My sweetie turned 28 yesterday. Last weekend we went to his parents to celebrate (which was the longest car ride in history, poor Tuesday). As you can see I brought up my scrapbooking supplies, but I did stop long enough to sing happy birthday 🙂 It was great to see my in-laws at home, as my mother in law has been in Florida caring for her parents for months (a trip that was supposed to last weeks). Tuesday was happy to get lots of Nana and Pops time in.
I was happy to get a little shopping in with Kathy. We went to a super sale at Old Navy and I got four, yes FOUR pairs of pants. I have been in this weird in between, two pounds from pre-pregnancy weight but my hips are all different now phase and it has been hard to find clothes. I would wear skirts everyday but I get so cold and long ones look crazy weird on this shorty. Anyway I totally scored there. And Bj got to get lots of bubble tea which made him exceedingly happy.
At home again I’ve been looking at the window at this:

back and more back:
It makes me so happy! The yard looks positively gigantic to me now with all the overgrown yuckiness gone (see the before here). I’m even making a category for my yard because I hope it is going to be a much bigger part of our lives. We decided to have all the grass and everything pulled so that we didn’t have to use chemicals to kill it and I’m so glad! Fresh start, yeah!
The other thing taking my time, besides daydreaming about summer days in the yard, is my Week in the Life project. Hmm maybe I should make a category for that too… Still not done, but I’m working on it.
My “start” page. We had a crazy night that first night (early, early Monday morning) and I got the iphone notes app out so I could record it all. My ink is smudgy. I can never wait for it to dry and when I use the heat gun it gets crinkly. I must be doing something wrong. I’m such a bad stamper, my stamps are a wreck!
Most of my pages look like this with place holders for the stamping I did last night:
Days of the week.
Okay I am not going to be back until I have my swap post all ready to go. Sarah agreed to be co-captian with me and we are so excited. We are trying to decide what to cap it at, last time I had 19 I think, but I think it’s going to be even cooler this time, we have lots of good ideas so watch out for it!
