My New Pink Bike!!!

Here it is!!! My new pink bike!
Peter ordered it for me when I was away in Buffalo--
see I complained last year that my original mountain bike was too uncomfortable
for my back--it killed to ride it! I said I wished I had a bike like his Mom's-old fashioned with the extra wide seat (haha) and handle bars that I didn't have to bend over to reach.
I had no idea he had done this-what a sweetie--I LOVE him!
And he picked the most awesome color-right?? It is so Bad Girl!
And the funny thing is this-I went to get a pedicure with Sherry and picked
a pink nailpolish-it matched the color of the bike--too funny! I picked it up the same day-and
told the guy that owns the shop-Eric-hey look---it matches-he thought I was nuts!

Anyway--thats my surprise and I love it! I have taken it for a spin around the neighborhood with the boys and I was stopped several times because everyone loved it!
I need a basket for it too--maybe when I visit the Cape....

Oh no-Not The Last Day Of School!!

Today is the boy's last day of school--sigh..they have already started fighting and it's time to resort back to a camp counsler! Thats OK. I will just have to tire them out all day!

And I guess I'll need to start becoming a night owl again to get work done since they'll be home all day.

Here is a quick sneek peak of the July kit that will be released at Bad Girls-very cool kit-I am having so much fun!
And....I got my ticket confirmation yesterday for CHA-I am too excited! It's a lot of hard work but I look forward to seeing all of my friends at Prima and hopefully some other scrapers I want to see. I missed so many people last year because we were so busy at the booth. And it's hard to recognize one another from a tiny little avatar on-line-ya know?
I plan to get my work on here soon-there hasn't been much time for anything this week!
And I have a photo I want to show everyone--Peter surprised me last week-he bought me something that makes me smile everytime I look at it! Will post later!

Another Crazy Weekend Ahead!!


I seriously have to start posting more-I am not off to a very good start!!

And the weekend ahead is busy!
Tonight I am cropping with my girls at the Shoppe--I love getting out but the problem is I never get much done when i do these things. I am too busy talking, laughing, eating.....etc!

But I am motivated-I have a ton of work to get done within this next week so I am hoping to put a dent in my work load scrap wise! The house is somewhat clean so no worries there!

I am just finishing a project for Bryan's teacher which has taken a lot of time the past couple of days---please remind me to stop volunteering for stuff-sheesh! It's an album for her class room with a theme that summarizes the year. She will love it and I have been cracking up at the photos-they are a bunch of crazy kids. I just adore Kindergarten, it really is the best year! They tend to speak the truth even if it is inaproppriate, they don't care who dresses a certain way or the income status of their families....they love each other, care about hurt feelings and enjoying friendships whether it be with a girl or boy--they are all equal. Love that! Too bad it tends to change as they get older. I guess you could call it the loss of innocence.

And then tomorrow-I go on a wine tour with a bunch of Sherry's crazy relatives--it's going to be hysterical! And fun! Sunday will be for recooperating and maybe a nap.

On another note-I wanted to let eveyone know-Wendy has extra June kits! So if you know anyone who would love to have one or join in on the contest for the 3 month subscription giveaway-tell them to go for it!!!!

And Prima is doing another Go Green Contest!!! Ends the end of June and their prize boxes are AMAZING!!!!!! Check it out on the Prima Blog!!!

AND!!! Here is a little sneak peek of my stamp I created for the July Bad Girls Kit!!!

I can't believe I have a blog! I finally took the plunge and created one!
I will be updating this continually and hope to customize it more as I go along..
This is all very new to me.
Thanks Ingvild for encouraging me to get this going!
Nic-Can you believe I did it? After so many "you need a blog" conversations, I knew you were right!

About the title:
I am a very tall girl so high heel shoes don't always work well.
Mary Janes shoes are perfect for me and I love them!
I need to have several pairs!
