One of “those” weeks

You know, the really really busy ones! Monday was mom’s 77th birthday so we headed over to her house with cake and presents to celebrate. We ended up staying a bit longer than planned while I set her up a Facebook account. Yikes! I’m not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing…time will tell I guess! She had been telling me about some of her old friends hounding her about getting on Facebook and then said “If I don’t hurry up, all my friends will be dead!” hahaha. Oh, mom.

Tuesday was C’s last basketball game. We were hoping it wouldn’t be, but they ended up losing by one point in yet another really poorly officiated game, but I digress. So, I spent Wednesday catching up on everything that didn’t get done Monday and Tuesday.

Thursday was Randy’s 45th, so more cake and present getting happened. I got him the set of headlight covers that he wanted for “Cammie” (his Camaro).¬† And Friday, he spent the evening with her, while I did NOTHING, thankfully!

And so now here we are. I didn’t even get much scrapping done last week and I am a couple weeks behind on my Life in Pockets pages. Hoping to get caught up on those week as I am anticipating fabulous new goodies to play with!

Still there some great new releases this week!

If you are a geek like me, then you totally knew that yesterday was Pi Day, and a once in a lifetime one at that. Etc. by Danyale has an awesome bundle deal with her It’s a Theory Kit and new Perfectly Geeky. I paired it up with Cheryl’s new Fuss Free: Banner of Love templates.

Cabin Fever!!

Oh has it ever set in. I love my family, truly I do. But after a week of being trapped in the house with them, it’s a wonder we are all still alive! I know I’ve mentioned that we have gotten off pretty easy in the weather department this winter, but Mother Nature decided that it was time for us to pay! It started snowing last Saturday and we got a little and then all hell broke loose. We have been out of school all week because of a combination of more snow and below 0 temperatures. I am seriously going stir crazy. This is definitely the time of year that I wish I lived in town and not on these hilly, windy, privately maintained roads. I have only ventured out the front door to shovel. And not only that, but I have been a total sloth inside the house. I just have no motivation to do anything. I feel like I have spent the last week doing nothing but cooking, eating, and washing dishes.¬† Ok…I’ll stop complaining now. They were calling for up to 12 more inches tomorrow, but have backed off to a more mix type thing, changing to rain. Thank GOD! I so feel for all of the people in states where they are dealing with much worse than we are.

We’ll move on to some scrappy things! I have done a little of that this week, so I will share some of the fabulous stuff you can find in the shops and on sale this weekend.

I’m loving my guest spot with Two Tiny Turtles! She has some great new template sets out this week…

This one is called For the First Time and uses a re-release from River~Rose and Pink Reptile Designs called Scrapazzi:
