Hellooooo & Happy Friday to you...its the weekend! I'm pretty sure I will be excited to see Monday after this weekend and I NEVER say that :) Prom festivities have started...Alexa (and me) got pedicures yesterday. Her best friend that moved to Georgia is flying in tomorrow evening for the weekend and to go to prom and she's staying with us...so the girls are excited. My mom comes up today too and we will be doing some stuffs as well. Riley is paintballing on Saturday morning, I'm going to the nursery to get some flowers for my pots, Alexa has a hair appt at 1, I gotta pick up her date's boutinniere, take Mom to lunch and then prom pics at 5ish. Phewwwwww! Then the adults are going to dinner and Riley is having friends over for the night and we will have some of Alexa's friends here after prom too. AND YES if you follow me on FB and Instagram I will have tons of photos of prom up this weekend if you wanna check em out! HINT: Alexa's dress is my FAVE color :)
This end of year school stuff is always killer but as they get older there is ssoooo much going on all the time, its like a whirlwind. Most of you may have noticed I'm not traveling and teaching as much this year...not that I'm fully stopping but I'm definitely not doing it as much. After 3 years of non-stop traveling I felt the need to take a bit of a break. Plus I want to be home more as this is Alexa's last year of High School and I don't want to miss a thing. Being a good mom and wife has always been important to me...you only get one chance at this stuff so I feel you gotta be really present & good the first time around. I also have A LOT of "other" things I want to do, try, accomplish and I just haven't had the time to do while I was traveling. And yes I miss it but I know what's MOST important in my life and I felt for both me and my family I needed to be home a bit more. Doesn't mean I'm stopping what I'm doing...it just means I'll be doing A LOT more of stuff LOL! I have lots of ideas and time still flies by but I'm trying to cram as much livin' in as I can!
AND as soon as I get my PC laptop fixed and/or get some software for my Mac so it will accept my camcorder I will have LOTS new videos coming, not just coloring but other things too....so stay tuned!
Supplies: Papers are by Prima and all were distressed with my Zutter Distress machine. I love a monochromatic theme and this one is a bit shabby chic. The decorative corners were done with a La La Land die "Filigree Corner", ribbon is from Michaels, charm I've had for ages and the leafy elements were done with a Memory Box die. Flowers are a mix of Prima and Wild Orchid Crafts.
