Oh my gosh!! Has anyone else had a crazy busy week?? Kiddos are out of school, Canada day and Independence Day tomorrow. I know there’s lots of festivities going on. I was supposed to go to the cabin with my BFF but I just couldn’t get it together in time… real life sometimes gets in the way of my fun life. Although I’m sitting here in the quite… first time I sat down all day and I have to say I’m feeling good. Sure my week was long but I have a great sense of a accomplishment and I can sit here with my feet up sipping my nighty night tea and feel guilt free about sleeping in tomorrow morning!
It’s also been pretty busy around Ginger Scraps this week. I know I’m missing my ladies and looking forward to a new month filled with fun challenges! I’ve been taking pictures like crazy so I’m set!
I have been a little absent but I did check out Rachel’s new store… Hmmm yup that’s right I’m so excited to welcome Pretty in Green to Ginger Scraps. I’ve been a fan of her freebies and LO’s for some time and she is such a welcome addition to the team:) I am so excited about her new puppy love series… I have sooo many puppy photos that still need to be scrapped!
She also has other breeds of dogs as well… which is good because I have a whole pack!!
Rachel also has some good news on the home front. Her dear daughter Ana is really getting used to her new glasses she has even caught her even fixing them on her face rather than taking them off she just looks so grown up in them, way too cute! Way to go Ana!!
In other goings on… I happened to talk to Mandy and she is recovering from her Ryliegh hangover! She had her niece Rye spend the week at her house… now keep in mind that her kids are 16 (we’ll get to that later!) and 11…
I’m going to copy and paste a post of hers from our private DT thread…. haha shhh…
Seriously I have no idea how you guys get anything done with little ones running around. I had my niece Rye for the past week and a bit and I am soooo pooped!!
She fun and pretty easy to look after but needs constant supervision! One day when she was running to the potty I was trying to just finish up gathering dishes… like 10 seconds goes by and I’m hot on her heels. I go to the bathroom and she’s not there…I find her in the kitchen … she had dumped a water bottle full of water into my big container of rice! So I made some rice that night for dinner…
She’s also doesn’t not like to be messy so if she gets a spot of mess on her clothes she needs to change…. it got to the point she showed me how to turn on my washing machine!! She’s brilliant! It’s a front load washer so she loads it with all her clothes I just need to do the soap!
Anyways life should be getting back to normal so I can catch up with my scrapping…
While I sit here a have a beer….... <—- that’s my favorite part ha!
And here’s a picture of the sweetie.. BTW totally getting the potty thing… Yay Rye!
Mandy also had another milestone this week. Her daughter Kelsey turned 16!!! And got her licence!! And a car!!!! That a whole lot for a mom to take in all in one week!!
Here’s Kelsey in her car…
Well I’m off to go dig around for some more juicy gossip…. cya next Saturday!!
