I feel free...

I am not usually one to write too many personal things on my blog...but I feel free and refreshed and it feels just so good! I got rid of one of those things in my life that has been weighing me down and now the world is roses colored again!

I have been walking Jack to school in the morning this week and adding at least another 3 miles on the way back. I have done some organizing. My laundry is caught up and I can vacuum most days...I have a thing about vacuuming alot! It is one of my quirks!

Going to the grocery store was not even so bad, I don't think I will ever really like it though. I have made dinner each night and have even tried several new recipes. Josh is loving having real dinners again! Tonight is The Food Networks Magazine Bang Bang Shrimp recipe...just like Bonefish Restaurant they say, Yum!



I have made this Eggs in a Basket breakfast that is on the cover for the boys this week and they are devouring it. Jack has even been helping make his own.

I started my photography class this week, yippee! Here is a peak of my first homework assignment! Do you know what it is? I will pick a RAK winner from everyone that leaves a guess in the comments!

I am looking forward to scrapping and visiting some of my favorite blogs which I just have not gotten to do. Thanks friends for letting me purge...I just could not hold it in any longer!

Now for some scrappy projects!

I always love playing with my Pebbles AC goodies! This month I made 2 projects. For this one I mixed and matched lots of Pebbles papers and some of my favorite Easter photos.


I featured some of my favorite beach photos in this layout and made this simple sun embellishment. Check out the Pebbles AC blog for the easy directions.

Here is a close-up...


Thanks friends! I will be back soon...no more of this one a week posting stuff for me!

YAY on the walking! Beautiful (as always) layout - and as for the object in your photo - I have no idea....but it looks like the opening to a sewage drain or something! LOL!

P.S. If you love vacuuming, please come visit me. I hate it.

So glad that you are feeling so good Mimi! Love both of these LO's. Your Easter pics turned out fantastic:) Have fun in your photo class. I'm thinking your picture is the top of a fire hydrant but I'm not sure. Have a great week.

Looks like a fire hydrant to me...

Lisa Howard said...

Something indescribable about that "free" feeling! Glad you are experiencing it right now! Great layouts as always...so love your style...always have!

BTW, if you have such a thing for vacuuming, I have some floors that could use a little TLC. :-) Hope you have a wonderful weekend! {{{hugs}}} L

My first thought is your photo is a fire hydrant but not sure. My son is a fireman so we look at these wherever we go! LOVE your layouts, that little sun is just plain CUTE!

CINNIBONBON said...

Its a fire hyrant for sure! But I want some details on the glass you are taking-pretty please.
Ok so I'm truly happy you have this new found freedom and joy!! Lucky girl

Melanie said...

Fantastic pages Mimi, that is a wonderful photo too.

Im thinking its a gas cyclinder and the propmt was lighting.

Rebecca said...

Love the block of photos and patterned paper in the first and that awesome flower in the second!

I am also guessing a fire hydrant and wishing I were obsessed with vacuuming!

Star Rork said...

yep i was guessing fire hydrant. doesnt it feel great when you can get things organized in life even if it only lasts for a little while!

deana said...

Beautiful pages, as always, Mimi! Lovin' that ribbon sunflower you made!

I can imagine that your great mood is due to all the walking you're doing! That is so awesome! Vacuuming is great exercise, too! ;-)

Have a great week!

Hugs...

A Fire Hydrant?

Love that you are feeling a lightening of the load - it's amazing how much junk we carry around with us without realizing it until we make a change. Loving the projects!
