Featured Again!

Woohoo this time one of my pages is (somewhat) featured over at the Weeds & Wildflowers blog. Their products are truly gorgeous, so I suggest you check them out!

In case you don't feel like clicking through, this is the page they featured:
One of my new faves, in fact. :) You can see credits here.

Some other new pages feature my favorite blonde (outside of my family), and oh yeah, my brother:
Yes, I realize I used the same photo twice, but how can you not use that adorable photo for all it's worth?? :) Credits are here and here, respectively.

In other news, had a very enjoyable weekend, although the 90+ degree weather we had here was enough to wipe out anybody, let alone us ladies (me, mom, Roseann and Lisa) who marched around old town Fullerton on Sunday for their annual Garden Tour. Super fun, but ridiculously hot. Photos will be posted later this week!

Oh, and my dad is in China on business for a week, so keep your fingers crossed he doesn't get caught up in some protest march and wind up in jail or something! ;)

For a Friday Funny

I just have to share this! Overheard in the Office is my savior during Friday afternoons that are just draaaaaaginnnng....

From My Blog to Theirs...

Your Thinking is Abstract and Sequential

You like to do research and collect lots of information.

The more facts you have, the easier it is for you
to learn.

You need to figure things out for yourself and consider all possibilities.

You tend to become an expert in the subjects
that you study.

It's difficult for you to work with people who know less than you do.

You aren't a very patient teacher, and you don't like convincing people that you're right.

I did this quiz for an easy Sweet Rewards point over at Sweet Shoppe Designs, but I was super surprised at the answer I got - it's so me! :D It was only 5 questions - I highly recommend taking a minute and answering them here.

My New Favorite Photos

Admittedly, I have a lot, but this series that Chris took of me with the boys last week is just...awesome. (You may have noticed one in the new blog header.) I'm so glad I have someone to hand the camera over to sometimes! Oh, and these totally weren't posed, I swear - I sat down on the ottoman at the end of the couch to chat with Chris when I got home from work, and the pups (of course) had to jump in my lap and compete for attention.To give them a bit of pop, I used a Lightroom preset from Traci Reed's Pop Starrs bundle - I use this set all the time! (Honestly, not getting anything from that promo, I really do love them!) :D

And, of course, I've already used one of them in a scrap page - how could you not??

Weekend Possibilities

Hoping to see Leatherheads tonight with Nikki while Chris is at work - hopefully we both won't pass out early like we did last time! What is it about Friday nights that the older I get the more tired I am by then?? Especially looking forward to seeing George Clooney, considering I had this crazy dream last weekend that I was related to him, like a cousin or something, and was hanging out at his house with him and his fiance. (I know he doesn't have one in real life, but that was the dream! So if he gets engaged anytime soon, I'm psychic. You read it here first, kids!) Yes, I'm weird and can usually remember my dreams, if not all the details. It sucks.

Tomorrow my mom and I (and hopefully Roseann!) are heading out to Palm Desert to heaven the mecca that is the outlet center there for some shopping. The forecast is 85 degrees and sunny. Woo!

Then to do penance for my shopping, Sunday will be filled with vacuuming, washing dishes, and whatever other types of cleaning I can think of. ;)
