I've been tagged!

I know, I know a few of you have tagged me and I'm just now getting to it! lol

So this is how it works. I must post the rules, 7 random things about me and then tag others to do the same. Sound fair enough, right? These are the rules…. each player starts with 7 random facts about themselves on their Blog. People who are tagged need to blog 7 facts about themselves and post the rules as well. At the end of their blog list 7 people you are tagging. Let them know that they are tagged by leaving them a comment.
Here goes!

1. I have 2 sisters and a brother.
2. I look just like my mom (and had someone not all that long ago ask if we were twins--still not sure if that meant I look like I'm 50 or is she looks 30)
3. I was a cheerleader in high school.
4. Nate and I knew we would get married as soon as we started dating.
5. I will only eat cheese pizza, I don't like anything esle on it.
6. I don't like to cook everyday meals but I love to cook big meals like ham with all the fixings.
7. I still sleep with a stuffed dolphin Nate bought me!! lol

I know I'm supossed to tag 7 people now but most of you have done it already so I'll just tag whoever wants to play!

Boy Layouts!!

I often struggle with boy layouts, they are harder for me, mostly because I love the pink, frilly girlie type of stuff. Noah doesn't even like me to put one flower on his layouts, even though I squeezed one in on one of these.
I am happy to be catching up on some of Noahs layouts, I had alot of pictures sitting here of him.

This layout is baised on a Pencil Lines sketch that can be seen HERE, if you haven't checked out that site yet you should--it ROCKS! :D

We have our last Tball game tonight, and of course there is a chance of rain. Besides that summer school is rolling right along, Noah started swimming lessons, Nate is trying to take a week off in July FINALLY!! He hasn't had a vacation in a year.
I hope your summer is starting as nice as my is!! Hugs to you all!

Happy Tuesday!! First off here are a couple of my latest layouts. I love this one of Ciaara blowing bubbles I just love the pictures! This one of Noah I did for a Freaky Friday Challenge on Scrapfreak! We had to use an arrow for the challenge. Noah is too funny and has the same smile in almost every picture I take of him lol

This weekend was a fun one, I had my share of ups and downs from spilling a drink all over the table and falling flat on my back at the Metrodome (yes I only had one drink) to winning 4 tickets to a Twins game AND we get to go on the field to see the players take batting practice.
I guess it was worth it! The kids got their faces painted, they were thrilled!

Summer school has been taking its toll and we are all tired around here, the kids are having a harder time waking up (so am I) and they are taking their sweet time in the morning to eat breakfast and get dressed its amazing we got out of the house on time today. Its also so hard for them to go to bed at a decent hour when its still light out. Its supossed to be summer time for sleeping in and relaxing!!!! They aren't ready to give up yet though, playing with their friends is too important and Noah starts swimming lessons next week.
Fathers day was laid back around our house, we gave Nate his gifts (I still need to photo the album I made him) He wanted to watch the Nascar race and wanted pizza for supper. I took Ciaara with me and Nate and Noah jumped in the kiddie pool. After the kids went to bed Nate and I watched a movie together, Catch and Release. It was the movie he got me for Mother's Day. It was a good day.
Have a great rest of week, thanks for stopping by!

I admit it, I'm a BAD blogger! lol I've had some busy days around here with school being out I have 2 people to entertain! We had a wonderful weekend, we were invited to a friends cabin on Saturday and we had such a wonderful time. Their son was in Noahs class (thats how we met) and thier daughter is 4 years old and the kids have had a few playdates together. It was such a great time, the weather was perfect, about 80 degrees and a little windy to kept the bugs away!
The kids went swimming and got to go tubing for the first time, it was SOOO much fun!!

I am been scrapping up a storm!! I'm so happy to be out of my rut-I love it when the ideas just come to you and the pages come together so easy! I'll leave you with one of my favorite layouts I just did a couple days ago.... and I'll try to be better about blogging!

Thanks for visiting! :D

Only 2 more days of school left for Noah, I can't believe it!! Today was crazy hair day at school, Noah got to pick out his hair color and couldn't wait to have his hair colored. He looked so cute! Noah gets to be the line leader on the last day of school and I told him he should dance his class out of Kindergarten but he says he is to shy to do that! lol One of the Freaky Friday Challenges at ScrapFreak was to Lift the Boss! I picked this layout from Monica and did a lift.. I love how this layout turned out!! This layout I did for fun, Ciaara doesn't like it all because she doesn't like the picture!
She was soo mad when I took the picture and super mad that I scrapped it.
This week is a little less crazy with soccer being done. Ciaara is adjusting to being home with me I think she likes school better! Yesterday we scrapped together, today we played games and I still got the big old "Mommy, I'm bored" argh I don't look foward to that all summer.
I hope to do some more scrapping tomorrow--Happy Tuesday! :D
