Really Busy!

Why is it that this time of year gets so busy? I have lots of "my" stuff going on, especially with the new calling and being a creative team member. Now it seems like my phone keeps ringing and the calendar keeps filling up!

My parents are coming in town. TWICE within 7 days. I could just scream.

Creative Team

After several e-mails with Miss Mint, the owner of, I think I have finally been accepted onto her creative team! This is pretty cool, not only because I will get free digital scrapbook stuff to be super-creative with, but because everyone will see my layouts online and it will force me to scrap everything that has been sitting since last summer! (All with out having to get out all my scrapbook supplies and take over the kitchen table for a week while I worry about Aiden finding a brad that I dropped!!)

I'll link to my layouts when I have some done. And Kelsey, if I run out of things to scrap but I still have to make the 3 layout minimum per month, I'll just HAVE to start in on the girls! So be thinking of what size layout you'll want. :)

Cool Link:
Yet again Parent's magazine is providing all of the great links for my blog! This site has cute rubbery bands that can be customized with your name and phone number and slid around bottles and sippy cups that so often seem to walk off. Great idea, even if it is a bit pricey.

Tay's Cheap Alternative:
These folks are here in Houston somewhere and will make a regular custom wrist band that you can put around your own sippy cups.

I feel like I have a million things to do so I made myself a to-do list of things I need to get done within the next 6 weeks or so. I just have to laugh at myself when I look at the list because nothing is particularly difficult. In fact, most of the items are fun! For example, I need to edit and upload some photos to That will involve playing in photoshop - like that is so bad! I just bought a 2008 planner and I need to get out all of my colored pens and fill in birthdays and other events. Coloring, what a chore, right? I need to get a birthday card & gift for my mom (Shopping! Whoo-hoo!) and I need to get the fall decorations down from the attic. So why on earth am I putting all this off to write on my blog? I simply cannot explain...

I'm not in to expensive soaps and shampoos but on a business trip last year, while I was still working, the hotel I stayed in had the bathroom stocked with Lather goods. I had never heard of them before but I took every last bit of product home with me! The Lemongrass soap smells like the most pure and delicious lemon cake. Not "grassy" at all. The mint shampoo was amazing, too. Brian kept burrying his face in my hair!
