On August 20 my "baby" went to school for the first time! He was so excited to go. All ready with his new backpack and tennies. I don't know where on earth the time has gone. It all seems to be going really well except on some days when he misses me. But I figure it's less than three hours, how much can he really miss me? :)
I'm gearing up for fall here, just planted a whole front stoop's worth of mums and grasses yesterday (photo to come) and the pool is coming down tonight. I may even stick my "Autumn Welcome" scarecrow in the ground this weekend. But before I know it, winter will be here and i'll remember back to the hot days spent in the pool and will be sad I ever wished it away.
Husker football started on Saturday and we spent the evening with our friends Casey and Shannie and their four kids. We had a ball catching up...it had only been two years! Time flies when you're having fun (and kids).

My friend Kerri is having her baby on the 9th. We used yesterday evening (between all of the storms we've been having) to take some pictures of her belly and her first "baby" Chet. I think they turned out pretty well. Thanks Kerri!! Good luck to everyone on Monday...can't wait to meet her!

I am honestly sooo excited about it. My laptop fits perfectly along with files, magazines, etc. It will be fantastic with my red luggage too and doesn't look a thing like your typical laptop bag! Thank you Kara at Kailo Chic! Now i'm walkin' around in style!

Why is the perfect pair of jeans so elusive? Why do they fit on my thighs but leave a gap at my waist large enough to hold a lumbar pillow? Can't anyone figure out that my legs are actually quite long for my height? And why does every pair I like the looks of have a 6 inch rise? I'm not 16 anymore people!! Frustration! Hopefully i've found the answer to these questions...check out http://www.zafu.com/. Supposedly this site will help you "Find your perfect jeans, bras & pants in 3 minutes." This is fantastic because 3 minutes is about all the time I have to spare. I entered my proportion "issues" and luckily the site rounded up 18 pair of jeans, at least 4 of which can be found here at home at a Nebraska-based store called The Buckle. It looks like the brand BKE is what will work best for me and either the Harlow or Culture styles. Are you kidding me? 3 minutes to figure out which jeans to buy, 10 minutes to get to the store that they're sold in, another 10-15 to try them on...I honestly can't wait. If all it takes is 28 minutes to find the perfect pair of jeans, I am pumped!! I will report back to let you (and zafu) know if this actually worked!! Oh yeah, and the best part...$66-$68! No $200 pair of jeans for me...working wife with two kids, a husband and a
mortgage!! Wish me luck!

Amanda does a GREAT job of providing handwriting fonts (complete with instructions if you should need them). Their site is fantastic and they are just an adorable couple.
Also loving the BHG scrapbooks etc. site:
I plan on getting to Michaels this weekend for some scrapbook supplies as I don't own one scrapbook yet. Shame on me!
Tomorrow will be attending my niece Haley's dance showcase. I will tote along my camera and see if I can get backstage for some photos of the "Divas!"
Blessings for a great weekend!

To look forward in 2008 i've got lots of things to keep me busy. I am planning a conference that will take place in May in New Orleans. I have never been there and so am looking forward to visiting the city and helping the economy (even as small as our associations contribution will be). I have also got plans to redecorate our basement. I'll be repainting the walls a beautiful shade of light gold, maybe finding some new art, rearranging the furniture, etc. I will also be converting our spare bedroom into a dressing/craft room for me. Since Owen was born we have had to be creative in order to find places for everyone's toys and clothes. Hopefully Ryan can come up with a creative and attractive solution for my dressing room. I'm looking foward to it. I got some new Amy Butler fabric for Christmas to help with pillows and even art work. Hoping to find some coordinating fabrics to add some color...i'll post pictures as I go along!
Happy New Year!
