From One Day to the Next

Life has been just a jumble of things lately. Mostly good, some bad (well one, lol). My Mom came for a super short visit this last weekend. On Sunday we celebrated my little brother's birthday. Isn't he cute :)

Then on Monday while my Mom was getting ready to leave I backed into her CRV (super nice and pretty new btw) with our van! Ugh. I felt horrible. I was going to take a picture, but decided that it wasn't a Kodak moment :)

Also over the weekend the bulb in our big screen TV went out. Another ouch that turned out to be a good thing. We definitely watched too much TV. The kids were addicted for sure and I always felt bad, but it was convenient at times. So now that we can't watch it it's actually been really good. Before I thought that kids would go crazy without it, but it only took a day or two for them to stop asking. We're definitely going to replace the bulb sometime soon, but might just have to cancel Direct TV. We'll see if we go that far, lol. So now that the TV's off this is what is playing over and over (and over) at our house.

Something pretty big has been brewing for a few weeks with us :) Corey works in the flooring industry. For a few years he was the flooring manager at a store and now he's on the retail end of selling flooring. Okay, not to bore anyone, but he knows his flooring ;) So about two weeks ago we were given the opportunity to buy a flooring business!! Pretty crazy, but super exciting! After, much, thought, fasting, and prayer, we decided to take the plunge. In 24 hours from now we'll officially be business owners!

Over the past few weeks Kate has really become a "mamas girl." She will flash these huge smiles at everyone, giggle, and the whole shabang, but as soon as anyone trying to take her from me out come the tears. They'll hand her back and within seconds the tears dry up and out come the smiles again, lol. She is too funny. I appreciate that she loves me so much, but this could be a become a problem.) Oh well :) Silly kid.

Tomorrow Breaking Dawn hits bookshelves everywhere and I can't wait!!! I've been rereading my favorite parts of Twilight lately and falling in love with Edward all over again. Corey thinks it's pretty funny. I guess that's all for now. Have a great weekend!

Oh I almost forgot, I scrapbooked! It seems like lately my layouts are fewer and far between. I had to use this new kit that Emily Merritt, Marcie Reckinger, and I created. It's called Happy Camper and it's a lot of fun.
