Project Life Week 29

For this week's layout, I used Clique Kit's Glam Camp August Kit.  It is one of my favorite kits of all time.  I have a ton of it left, but I don't want to waste it.  It's just a really lovely kit.  This week our big event was going to Dripping Springs.  I've never made the entire hike because I've visited the area only to take photos of other people.  So we decided to take all of the boys and go.  It's such a beautiful place to visit.

A Week in The Life

I will be doing A Week in the Life this year starting October 27, 2014.  I know I already do Project Life, but this week I will focus on routines and things that define our family instead of weekly events.  I'll be choosing at least one photo a day that represents that day of the week for us.  We have a few people joining this event on my Scrappy Girls page.  So if you would like to join follow that link and I'll add you.  I'll try to post the pictures up on my blog as quickly as possible so you can follow along here too.  Enjoy your Monday!

Around Here

Hey everyone!  We've been pretty busy around here.  That's no surprise, really.  I finally uploaded my pictures from my phone, and thought I would share a few.  Over the last few weeks, we had a lot of rain, visitors, and fall break.  Our fall break was last week.  This week was Wolfie's.  It's sort of annoying to be on three different schedules around here.
 Mushrooms in the backyard

 Super busy with my design team work.

 Trying to learn to tie shoes.

 Tickle time

 Going out for Bosa Donuts

 Wolfie is suddenly into selfies???

 We took a little walk the other day.

 Jenga is serious around here.

Happy Sunday!

This and That

It's been so long since I've just posted about me and mine and what's been going on around here.  So here we go.  

1.  We've been keeping up with our Real Food Diet.  I recently purchased Lisa Leake's cook book, 100 Days of Real Food, which I love.  I highly recommend it.  It is packed with information from her blog, and wonderful recipes and meal plans.  I cook a lot with her recipes and I can't say there hasn't been one I haven't liked.  Everything I've ever made using one of her recipes has been a big hit in our house.  

2.  We got a membership to Costco.  I decided to do this because it's so expensive to try and keep up with solely Real Food in your home.  We got the basic membership, Gold Star, after much contemplation.  We went in and looked at all of the food and prices.  We decided to go ahead and get it because it would save us so much money when it came to meats and healthy snacks.  This first trip we saved $35 as compared to what I'd pay at a local grocery store.  That's only $20 away from the cost of membership.

3.  I am really missing my iPhone...better known as Mariphone.  Maralaxy is nice, but I want my iPhone back.  Guess I found that out the hard way.  It's my punishment for being a traitor.  

4.  I'm on a country music kick right now.  I completely love American Kids by Kenny Chesney.  It's such a small town song, and sometimes I really miss my hometown.  I miss my friends now that we're all spread out.

5.  This kid has turned into a monster.  It's like the instant he walked into middle school he was a completely different child.  It's so hard to parent a middle schooler.  I'm sure much more is yet to come as he gets older.

6.  We're all adjusting to a few bombshells that were dropped on us.  We're trying to adjust to the deaths of half of our grandparents and a friend.  We started this year with 8 grandparents.  It's been a hard thing to accept.

7.  I took my step sister's senior photos this weekend.  It's hard to believe that she's going to graduate this year.  It was nice because I've been so burnt out on taking pictures.  This was just laid back and relaxed.  I'm finally getting to where I want to start taking pictures again.  

8.  I've been busy making layouts and cards.  You guys have seen that, but it makes me really happy to have a creative outlet.

9.  I can't believe how fast this year is going.  It's been hard, but were are 3/4 of the way done.  The holiday season will be here before you know it.

10.  I've been trying to get Wolfie to read Harry Potter for the last couple of years.  The kid is finally reading the series.  He's onto book 5 now.  The only problem is that he's more interested in reading than doing his school work.  So, now I actually have to take the books away from him.  :/

So there you have it.  A little this and that.  Hope you have a beautiful Sunday!

Enjoy the Ride (12x12 layout)

Here is the first layout I made with Clique Kits' October Kit, Masquerade Ball.  It's a great kit filled with lots of goodies from Basic Grey's Second City line.  

I started the layout with some Washi tape I had.  It came with my previous Clique Kits' kit.  You can find the Blue Glitter Washi tape here.  Then I added some white paint for fun with a roller stamp.  I loved the 4x6 cards and mini treat bags that came with the kit.  I colored this mini treat bag with a Mr. Hueys Ink Dauber.

I can't wait to share more projects with you this coming month.  Today, you will find me on the Clique Kit's Blog with some photography tips.  Don't forget the Limited Edition Card Kit.  It's fabulous!!!
As always, don't forget if you shop the Clique Kits Store to enter MARIAH10 for ten percent off of your purchases.

It's October...What happened to September?

I can't believe that September is already behind us.  It went by really quickly.  I just wanted to welcome you to October.  I'm so excited to start my design team work with Clique Kits!!  Today was the first Design Team Showcase.  You can see me and my layout on that post here.  Also, tomorrow, I will be posting my very first post on the Clique Kits blog.  Sorry for the super quick post today!  I hope all is well in your world.
