Sunny Days...Sweepin' The Clouds Away...

Another month has gone by. WOW. I will say it again...I really need to start blogging more. I know it has been a month, since the last blog I posted was last month's "FAVE THINGS" challenge. Anyway...let's see, what all happened this past month.

Most recent would be my kidney stones...EEEEK! Ended up in the ER in extreme pain! Thought I just had a kidney infection. Not so "lucky", I guess. But, it could have been worse...they first mentioned appendicitis. I still didn't pass any of them, but the medicine that they prescribed must be breaking them down, because the pain is much better.

I'm still keeping up with the diet/exercise/weight loss. SO far I've lost 34 pounds! This is so exciting to me! I'm starting to feel/look better than I have in years! Jason promised me a shopping trip for all new clothes when I'm ready. Can't wait! I don't buy myself a lot of clothes, so it will be a real treat! I have about 26 more to go before I'm where I think I will look awesome! I got this!!

In scrappy is my layout for FAVE THINGS this month. Our challenge is to scrap a favorite childhood toy. Mine was always my Cabbage Patch Kids. Come over and join us...we would love to have you: .

My Cabbage Patch Kids were my favorite toy(s) growing up. Unfortunately, my Mother never saved anything, so I don't have any of them anymore. If I recall correctly, this is what my very first one looked like. My Aunt Donna (RIP) actually got me one for Christmas the very first year that they came out. She stood in line for hours and ended up getting smacked over the head with a lady's purse because she grabbed the last one! I was the happiest girl alive that Christmas morning!!

Here's 2 more layouts I did recently. Nich and I took a walk to the local Rita's (Italian ice place) and I took the Rebel with me and caught some good shots of him.

Notice how red the tongue is...he had a strawberry ice that day! Guess he was done with me taking his picture by this point. Used Bo Bunny's "Blast Off" line for this one.

Was playing with the aperture on the camera for this one. Love the way the pic turned out. Used Crate Paper's "Restoration" collection on this one! Lots and lots of layers!

Only 8 more days of school for Nicholas! I need to concentrate on getting a job. My butt NEEDS to get back to work. At least I won't have to worry about school and can work whatever hours over the summer. My parents will gladly watch Nich. Keep your fingers crossed, there's got to be something out there for me!

Guess that's about all....Until Next Time.....
