Day 137 - My birthday

I had a great birthday yesterday. Nicholas had 2 soccer games back to back but he stepped in a hole at practice and hurt his foot so when he came downstairs limping, I knew he wasn't going to be able to play so off I went to the stamp store instead. I got a few of the new Amuse rubber stamps that are out for the summer.
Anyway, I got a nice new camera that is very lightweight and it will zoom in real close. I also got a pretty bouquet of flowers from my aunt and uncle. That was a nice surprise!! I got a "funny" gift from my sister (who thinks she is being funny anyway) ... she gave me a "hot flash extinguisher" (see photo). I will save it for her when she needs it (I do need it myself so she can't have it till I'm done with it! LOL). Traci gave me some cute ceramic flip flops that hang on the wall. I think I will hang them going into my stamp room. I have the perfect little wall for them to fit on. The kids got me some new Copic markers and some new Nestabilities (Inverted Scalloped Circles) so I can't wait to put those to good use.
Charlie and Emily baked brownies while I was at the stamp store so that's what we had for dessert, with ice cream on top. Mmmmm good!!!

We could see this from our house tonight ... We think they were doing a practice flyover for the Nascar race. We are about 15-20 minutes from the race track in Concord.

Day 136 - Happy Birthday to me!!!

Mary, Lorraine and I went to Cracker Barrel for my birthday breakfast!! It was so yummy. Mary surprised me with a dozen donuts from Dunkin Donuts. Mmmmm good!!!

Day 123 - Funnel clouds all around us

None of them actually touched down but they were all around us for 2 nights this week ...




Day 119 - Emily

Emily discovered a new clothing store at Concord Mills Mall called Papaya. I haven't been in it yet but she found this cute dress so I took her photo :).


Day 118 - Whoopie's on my wall

I sent Whoopie a "welcome to the View" card when she came on the tv show. She sent me this awesome photo signed by her and I had it framed. She's in my stamp room.


Day 117 - Nicholas made this

Nicholas sewed this from scratch at school. He even sewed the brand name label on and I am very impressed!!! His final grade is a "B+".



Happy 14th Birthday Nicholas

Wonder what he wished for ....

When did he get so much TALLER than me?????

He requested Chick-Fil-A for breakfast and yes, it was yummy!!!
