July Clique Kit Share!

Happy Wednesday!!
I am back today to share a creation from the Clique Kits July kit.......A Midsummer Night's Dream!

This is the second kit that I have received now and I have to say....this one was just as good as the first! Remember how giddy and excited I was THEN?! Well, I am just as twitterpated with this kit too! It was loaded up with all kinds of fun papers and alphas and wooden thing-a-ma-jigs and embellies.....I have only had the chance to make one layout with it so far, and I have SO MUCH leftover stuff to play with! I plan on bringing the remainder of this one to the retreat with me next month and finishing it up for sure!

Now on to the Pep Rally...

If you haven't started from the beginning, head on back to Clique Kits and make your way through the entire member's share.........TRUST me there are some CRAZY talented ladies and you just HAVE to see what they have all done!! If you have arrived here from Rosann's blog, then you are already well on your way through the list!!

I had a hard time deciding on photos for this kit, as the Mister and I don't really travel (YET!!) and it was geared towards road trips, travelling, etc.....but alas, I decided to use a couple fun photos from Canada Day!! We spent the day out on the lake at Wabaman with Loni & Rob and the boys, and did we ever have a blast! We got the boat in the water at about 9:30AM and we came back out of the water at about 8:00PM! We road in the boat, did some tubing, swam, lazed about, had a few adult was an awesome day! At one point, Loni and I were sitting in the tube gabbing away, coolers in hand and the boat was dragging us along at about 45KM/Hour or so.........and we didn't miss a beat!!

The best part of the day for me though, was watchin Mister D chill.........he even went in the tube!! A few times!! With the boys, with me and even solo!! So here he is in his tall dark drink of water glory, for you all to see....

I tried to get a couple of closeups of the layout too for you to see, but my lighting is really bad and I, in true me fashion, left my post to the last minute! So I will have to try and make up for it next month :) Because I am signed up for that kit too, and judging from the sneak peaks we have seen already, this one is going to be just as good as the others! I can't wait for my happy mail to arrive :-D

So, head on over now to visit Sarah and see what she has done with the kit! And don't forget to leave me a comment, cause I sure do love them :)

Peace out readers!! My son and I are off to BC tomorrow to visit the fam-damily and celebrate THREE birthdays this weekend, so I shall return next week with some new photos of all my patooties back home and maybe some good news on the JOB FRONT too!!

Have a great weekend everyone!!

Lights. Camera. DATE NIGHT!!!


The Mister and I had a date night the other night and treated ourselves to burgers at was the first time we have been there! And I have to say, the food was very mediocre. Neither one of us was very impressed, (except for with the decor! It was a fun and friendly 50's diner kinda vibe...) but the food was expensive, and not very tasty. I am pretty sure the gravy on my poutine resembled that which would come from a can. Yes, CANNED gravy. WHAT?!?!

After dinner we headed to the theater where we saw "Tammy" which was pretty funny. And raunchy. And sailor-mouth+trucker-mouth cussin. We enjoyed our popcorn, our reclining seats & many good laughs. The theater was close to empty to since we opted for the LATE LATE show and it was a Wednesday night.

If you haven't seen a preveiw for this one yet, here it is for your virgin ears to enjoy ;)

We give it two thumbs up. (OK, since there is two of us we will say EACH, so you don't think we are giving it a 2/4.)

Now if only the popcorn had been HOT.....

I have to say I am loving hubby's hometime now :) It's awesome to have him home and to myself for 7 glorious days! The 24 days away SUCKS. But those 7 are ALMOST worth it ;)

Peace Out readers! If there are any out there.

Hey, leave me a comment, would ya?!

What a week!

It's been one hell-uva-week round here this week! I had three.........yes, I said THREE job interviews this week. One that I am on pins and needles waiting to see if I get will be amazing, if I do! I heard from them today and found out that they are proceeding with reference checks, so that must mean that I am in the running! I almost squealed out loud when I heard her voicemail!

Hubs ended up coming home last Sunday, and since I wasn't expecting him until Aug 1 or 2 it was quite the surprise! Sounds like he will be heading back into camp this Sunday though, for about 24 days. Hate saying goodbye for so long! This oilfield wife thing is hard to get used to! But I love knowing that he is in camp, with a comfy bed, a shower, hot meals, etc. and not on some scary highway somewhere battling the elements :)

We added a new addition to our family this week as well. I have been searching for an orange and white kitty for a coon's age, but was determined to find a girl! And they are rare, in that color......but alas, I have found HER!! And she is sweet and wonderful :) And already SO spoiled! Here she is, for your viewing pleasure...

Meet Naula!!

The one where she has her legs in the air?! No joke.....she was sleeping curled up behind one of the throw pillows on the couch and I lifted the pillow up and saw her snoozing away like that......I'm pretty sure at that exact moment my heart bursted out of my chest and I giggled like a little school girl! And the tongue picture.......with the milk god.
She needs a licence to be THAT cute!! ♥

It's Friday. I love Fridays. Not that I am a Mon-Fri girl right now, but still........
adult bevvie........CHECK!........

I plan to play along with some challenges tonight, and get some mojo back. I learned about a DT posting this afternoon that I am secretly hoping to apply for, but I need to get creating first! My poor neglected scrap room..........all "WORK" projects are packed up for the evening and tonight I plan on playing just for fun! Which I haven't done in a looooooooong time!

So come on back and check me out in awhile, and I hope to have some creations to share! Off to get my hands inky now.......what are you up to this fine Friday evening? Leave me a comment and let me know!

Ciao, but only for now........
