It's been awhile since I've blogged. I've just been so busy with the kids and all the daily stuff that I have to do. I cannot remember for the life of me what I did with all my time before I had kids.

So, last week I turned 40 (gasp). It wasn't all that bad. I thought I would be more depressed about it but I wasn't. (I think I was just to busy hehe). We started off by going to breakfast with the kids on their way to school (McDonald's). My friend Sheri gave me some candles, hand lotition, a pumpkin soap dispenser and pumpkin scented hand soap. We didn't our "friends" there from a few weeks earlier when we went for Sheri's birthday. It's kind of a tradition now. I got the coolest gift in the mail from my friend, Lisa. Lisa moved back to S. Bend Indiana two years ago. She was my lunch, scrapping, stamping, just hanging around buddy. We did a lot together. Anyway, she sent me a box with 40 wrapped presents. It was so cool. I took a picture but it's still on my camera so I will post it later. What a creative gift. Lots of scrapping stuff, an altered composition notebook (my favorite), candles, magnets. It was so creative. She even sent me some candy from the 80's. Remember pop rocks? The candy cigarettes? Too fun. Remember how we were told that if we ate the pop rocks and drank coca cola our stomach's would explode? My friend, Kate, stopped by and gave me an awesome orange/pink scrap tote filled with scrapping goodies (orange & pink--my favorite colors). Then I spent the evening working at the concession stand at the Homecoming football game. IT WAS HOT. It was miserable. However, I did a good thing for the baseball team (they get the proceeds). It didn't help that Florida is in a heatwave. On a happy note, our team FINALLY won. They have won a game yet this year and they won in triple overtime! Yeah. Go Patriots. I came home and showered and just crashed. So, overall I had a great birthday. Oh yeah, I got a new dishwasher finally last week so Steve counted that as my birthday gift. He was off the hook.

We survived our last Homecoming. Elizabeth was beautiful. It's hard to believe that this was her last one. I don't know why the picture went to the top of the post. I don't know what I am doing wrong. She was stunning (well, I am biased). She had a blast.
Well, I guess I should get my day started. Kind of a boring blog entry. I have more to tell but I need to hit the shower and get my errands started. There is a HomeGoods store that just opened. I need to go check it out. I also need to tackle Mt. Washmore.
Have a great Thursday.

Happy Belated Birthday, Kim.....hope it was a good one :) Cute idea about the 40 gifts you received. 40's not that bad....afterall, they say that life begins at 40 ;)

Kim! Sounds like you had a good birthday. Happy Belated! I agree with Benita, 40 is not that bad. I've been 40 for 3 years! ;)

My advice on putting the picture in the right spot on your post is to put it on first and then type around it. They always load on the top. Or you can click on the "Edit Html" tab and cut and paste the photo to where you want it.

Speaking of the photo...She's beautiful. You must be very proud!

Take Care!
