Happy Tuesday!!

Hi All and Happy Tuesday!! Today will be busy as the Missionaries are coming for dinner this evening and we have to get ready for them to come. I already have the meat in the crockpot. Just have to decide what else to serve with it.
Have a couple scrapbook layouts to show you. Actually, I have more than that but I'll only bore you with two of them.

Thought this one turned out good. A mother's nightmare to be sure though!

And a new pic of Teddy Bear. She is such a cutie! Took this pic just yesterday. Isn't she tiny and sweet?

Pics from our evening with Hope and Jim, Kathy and Phil and Cade and Melissa. We had a nice time with them.

And pics of the remodel in our living room! I'm loving the new plant shelf. Haven't put anything on the new part of it yet. We are hoping to paint soon. Finally got the colors picked out. Just need to get the paint and put it on the walls. Anyone want to come help?????
The guys cut a hole in the slanted part of the ceiling and put the shelf inside of it to help brace it up and make it more weight bearing.
I love how they finished this off. Looks pretty cool!

And look at that smooth curve in the corner!! The guys really worked hard on this and it took them most of the day to get it all finished up. I LOVE IT!!! Thanks, Guys!!

We washed all of the plants and birdhouses off while the shelf was going up. But we haven't arranged them just how we want them yet as we will just have to redo it when we get done painting. So things aren't arranged up there yet. We just put everything up on the shelf to get it out of the way for now.

Life is good! Hope you all have a great day!!

Fun News!!

Hi All! Hope life is treating you well today! I have some fun news I wanted to share. I was chosen as the May SAS-y Princess at Stone Accents Studio!! Here is a link to the layout I did that won me this honor:
They also gave me this blinky to wear - my "crown". I'm not sure how to post it on here though.
I'm very excited about this. They also gave me a gift certificate for $20 to spend in their store. So I get to go on a shopping spree!! Yay!!!! A girl can never have too many digi scrapping supplies in her stash!
Things are going pretty good here at the moment. Stephen has been working a few Saturdays and that has helped a lot. Stephen R. and Chris came over and built me a new plant shelf that attaches to the one that was already in the living room. They did a beautiful job on it. It was my Mothers Day/Birthday gift from them. They also went all through the house and repaired walls, ceilings, etc., for us. We are getting ready to paint now. I know what colors I want to paint but need to choose the actual tones. Anyone want to come help me do that????? I'll add photos of the new shelf soon. Just need to get them downloaded into my computer first.
Have a great day! Watch out for those simple pleasures!!
