lazy days of summer

i think yesterday was the first saturday, in quite a long time, that all we did was hang out around the house. and do, virtually nothing!! the kids played outside. my in-laws came over for a bit. we grilled for dinner. just a laid-back sort of day.

this little cutie is taylor. she lives across the street and makes noah's heart skip a beat. they are quite the adorable couple, and run to each other whenever one sees the other. man is it cute!

hope your weekend was laid-back and chill too!! :)

busy, busy, busy me!

i have been a busy gal........
making lots of jewelry, cards, and well, that's it! just lots of it! (well, lots for me anyway!) i think i mentioned that i did an open house with a friend of mine.? here are some of the pics from that. it was good. we got a small flow of traffic, and i sold a bit of my stuff. it was good. now i'm in the process of making more and perhaps selling it out of a store. we'll see! :)

motivationally handicapped

yep....that's me. a true, sincere, honest-to-goodness, LACK of motivation! to create anything, to read anything, to BLOG anything, to launder anything! (okay, so the laundry thing i've had to get over because apparently my family likes to wear clean underwear....go figure!) i've also had to push out of this .... muck, for lack of a better word. i had an open house last week and had to get tons of stuff ready for that. i did it. it was a push. so this picture of teddy is TOTALLY how i feel. like laying around like a big 'ol fluffy lump of lumpiness.

last week was my birthday. i am now 34. i don't feel 34. i don't think i look 34. but i am. 34. just 6 short years from 40. now that thought does freak me out a bit. i never thought i would be 40. i always thought i would be 20-something. isn't that always the case? we usually don't perceive the fact that our age is upon us. at least i don't. even with each passing birthday, i still don't. i can't figure out if that is a good thing, or a bad, denial-like thing. probably the latter.

these lovely flowers are from my hubby. i got lots of flowers this year. and bath stuff. hmm.. what does that mean? see, here i go again analyzing the heck out of everything. it's an issue i have. i love this picture because i got the word faith in there. not on purpose. just a happy accident. love those! but it speaks to me right now. big time!!!!

oh, and i FINALLY, after 33 years, received that coveted ice cream cake from Baskin Robbins. i have seriously wanted one for as long as i can remember. inside was my favorite B&R flavor: mint chip. the cake was chocolate, which is not my fav. flavor cake, but the icing and roses on top were the lovliest shade of pink, so i was as happy as can be!!!!!!! :)

absense makes the heart grow fonder?

i wonder if that saying is true for blogs too? i have been absent from my blog for well over a month...for many different reasons. but i realized that i missed it. even if i'm only blogging for myself (which is kind of the case) it's worth it. it is therapeutic somehow. so i'm re-dedicating myself to this here blog. i'm going to focus a bit more on my art here. i'm making it a goal to post more of my creative endeavors, in hopes that it will motivate me to crank out a bit more in that area!! to say that i've been slacking is a major understatement. my motivation is nill right now. i'm digging deep to find some spark to get me going again, as i really hate to be in slumps!

in other news, i went to vegas at the end of july. it was an interesting trip because we didn't really do too many "vegasy" things. i won't go into it all now, but i will post a few pics from the trip. i can always find fun and funky things to take pictures of that make me smile...still to this day, and probably for a very long time will these pics make me smile. i'm quirky that way!

old vegas neon....i love, love, love it! i like to imagine what old vegas was like in it's glamourous glory days. when everything and everyone was shining and beautiful. makes me smile.

we did go to the m&m store. one of the highlights of my trip was purchasing several shades of pink m&m's. it was pure pink bliss and took me quite a while to bring myself to eating them. they are just too pretty. but the alure of milk chocolate gets me everytime!!

ah yes, and the wyn hotel. we didn't stay there, but did walk through it and spent the better part of an entire day there (long, long story.....) talk about glamour and beauty. this is truly where the beautiful people stay and play. this ginormous waterfall behind me was breathtaking. and the visual eye candy didn't just kept getting better!!! my camera and i were very happy! :)
have a glorious wednesday.....and be on the lookout for a more artsy vibe on my blog! :) :)
