13 October 2008

so i didn't really have any plans today.
i mean i have a few projects going on, but i needed a break.

so i crossed my fingers and hoped that time warner was done being stupid.
i really wanted to do some blog surfing.
{see this post if you are lost.}

well i always start with the roll o' blogs listed on the right.
and there it 'today' project.
miss vanessa at v & co. just so happened to have posted a tutorial today.
and she inspired me to make one of my own.
{go here to check her's out.}

i made mine to fit a 13x13 black picture frame.
{weird frame size isn't it???}

i had a large berry wreath hanging there between those rotiron sconces.
{which are HUGE by the way.}
and the hubby and i have been trying to figure out what i could make for that spot.
we knew that we wanted it to change with the seasons.
and until today...nothing jumped out at us.

i'm going to be the sneaky wife and see how long it takes the hubby to spot it.
{work all day. football tonight.}
i know i know...devil woman.
but it'll be fun.

still not the best picture quality on above pics.
i'm really thinking that i'm gonna have to get a new digital camera.
i have an hp now, but i want a canon.
want in one hand...wish in another right???

and to the owner of the blog
i have alot of people that come to my blog by way of your blog...
and i wanted to check your blog out...because i ♥ blog surfing!!!
...but it told me i had to be invited.

out of anyone out there watching trueblood on hbo???
it's SO not anywhere near as good as twilight to me, but i like it.
i was just curious if anyone else was a fellow fan.
{you can find out more about it here.}

no i did NOT fall off of the face of the planet.
i've been in ireland.

i kid i kid.
if i was indeed in ireland...i would NOT have put a pic of MY house up there.
it would, without a doubt, be a breath taking photo of the emerald isle. promise.
but i heard yall saying 'shut up...she was???'

so what have i been doing???
well the question is...what HAVEN'T i been doing.

FIRST: momma was here.
we had SO much fun.
she spoiled me rotten. {and the kiddies too.}
she gave me some of my grandmomma's jewelry...
we went shopping {ALOT}...
we watched movies...
and then she left and i was SUPER sad.
i need her to live closer to me...seriously.

THEN: i got completely knee deep into reading.
what was i reading???
{4 books actually.}
it took me 4 days but i finished 4 novels: moon...eclipse...breaking dawn
{all by mrs stephenie meyer...and i'm addicted!!!}
twilight the movie comes out 11.21.08!!!

also i've been enjoying all my bday gifts.
boy did i make out!!!

what did i get???
well this stuff:
my claddagh ring {yeah baby!!!}
a new shelf for the living room with the fixin's {meaning with berry swags and fall decos.}
primitive lap quilt.
tons o' books...including: tour ireland with pat sloan & pat sloan's favorite techniques.
a bundle of nikki fat quarters. {pat sloan's}
new clothes.
and i'm sure i'm forgetting something.

THIRD: it's football season.
i've been really consumed with that.
did i mention that the hubby is a coach???
and i'm the team mom???
yeah...lot's going on there.
AND i was asked to be the cheer leading coordinator for the whole league next season.
boy oh boy...decisions...decisions.

and LASTLY: the whole griffith clan has been down with a sickness this past week.

so that's been my wild & crazy life since september 23rd.
i have missed yall like crazy!!!

oh and pat sloan asked me to be the resident chef of her october newsletter!!!
i shared my caramel apple fall cake.
