When I design, I almost always have some movie/tv show going on corner of my screen. I can’t seem to design without it. I never watched the tv show, ER while it was going on, but lately I have been consumed by it. This week I started the 8th season – I’m sad now that all the characters seem to be changing – the old ones moving on (my favorites 🙂 – but I am still enjoying it.

Beth is a morning person. I am not sure where she gets it – because I am definitely NOT. She is usually the first one up and she wakes her brother up and eventually her parents drag into the kitchen. This is how I found her this morning. All decked out, with the dress over her pajamas – her crown and sun glasses on and with her play phone – all ready to go for the day. My little Super Star!

Dad brought home a yummy blue slushie to share for dessert! The kids loved it and there’s nothing like blue tongues in summer!

The kids were playing outside and I was doing some work in the house. Suddenly I heard some terrifying screaming from Beth. She hopped in the house, wailing and holding her foot.
“Mooommmmm, a bee was on my foooooot, and and and I told it to go away, but instead it bited meeeeeee.”
Yep, Beth got her first (and hopefully last) bee sting. We treated it and I had to hold her for the rest of the day! Poor girl.

We had lunch with Dad at McDonalds today! It was fun to see Dad outside of work on a weekday! 🙂 The kids came home with some adorable little critters from their happy meals and for the rest of the day they played with all of their stuffed animals!

A few months ago I had a promotion on my blog HERE. It is kind of a crafty Pay-it-forward kind of thing and I had saw it on my friend, Brianne’s blog and loved the idea, so I signed up! Well today, I received a great surprise in the mail – an amazing stitched wall hanging for me! It’s beautiful Brianne – thank you so much! I immediately hung it on my living room wall.
I AM working on my little projects for the 5 people that signed up on my blog – so hopefully they will be done soon!

I stayed up all night working on a kit. We went to church and then when we came home, I just crashed for about 3 hours. It was our monthly dinner with my brother and his wife and it was my turn to cook, but unfortunately, a construction crew broke the water main and we had no water. So I made up some chicken salad sandwiches, Snicker salad, and some fruit and we went over to Cody and Becki’s house to eat. It turned out really great for a summer dinner – no cooking to heat up the house! It is always nice to visit with them! I caught this photo of the sun on our way home – it was very beautiful and was the perfect way to end our Sunday!
