Monday what-nots

****

First of all... thank you guys so much for going over to Alison's page and giving her some needed well wishes. She's got a tough road ahead of her and is confident that she is going to beat this... please just keep her in your prayers as she continues to fight this cancer. Thank you again for helping to carry just a little bit of her burden.

****

I'll share some recent pages with you...

This is the last wedding page for Niki. They were SO fun to do! Her fave color is pink so of course I had to do the last page in pink. =) I hope you weren't getting worried, Niki! And I was totally hoarding that bling I put in the middle of the pink flower. =) Had to use it on this page.. just for you!!! Thanks again for letting me play with your pictures!!!

And...

Another Florida picture! Although the page doesn't have anything to do with Fl. I guess I've been into very bright pages lately. Must be because it's summer. =) Did you know that ric rac is only $1 at Walmart? So I figured if I put one in my cart every time I go, Darin won't notice the 106 colors of ric rac I would possess. =) Shoot.. he reads my blog.. plan failed.

*****

Soooooo change of dog plans. We doggie-sat for my nephew doggie this past weekend. This is the recap...

*Samson has a belly ache.. Darcy is on her hands and knee's, gloves on, dry heaving, SCRUBBING the 4 poo gifts he left her.

*Samson has dirty feets... Darcy forgets this and lets him in the house as he tromps on Darcy's very light carpet. Darcy gets on her hands and knee's and scrubs the paw prints off the carpet... completely ticked as Samson tries to lick her in the face with his skunk breath.

*Darin and Darcy found out that Bailey still doesn't like dogs. Bailey would lay on his back, let Samson lick his ginormous belly and just when Samson least expected it.. BAM.. Bailey would punch him in the eyes. Samson fell for it every time.

So yeah.. this weekend basically told me that when it comes to the dog department?

I'm good.

Bailey never leaves me poo surprises on my floor or has dirty feet. Although him punching Samson in the eye was pretty humorous. =)

*****

And in other news.. DARIN AND I ARE GOING TO BE AN AUNT AND UNCLE AGAIN!! Whoo-hoo!! His brother and sister in law are preggers. We are so excited.. as are they. We like to think that we are decent in the aunt/uncle department: play hard, wind them all up, and give them back to their parents. Just Perfect. =)

Hola chica! I'm totally cracking up on your dog poo comments. :) And yeah, I can totally relate! Between 2 doggies and 2 kiddos (and 2 cats, but they are pretty clean), I'm usually scrubbing something at least twice a day! I should buy stock in Resolve carpet cleaner, I tell ya.
Love the pages. Haven't been on 2Peas to check em out, but I'm headed there now! Have a good one-

Thanks for reminding me that I need to clean the stairs. We live in a split level and Tolkein is always tracking mud on the first three steps :) Congrats on the new baby joining your family! Oh, and I've seen what Darin is capable...as of yet our garage shelving is nothing compared with his talents and we still have a long way to go!

Jamie said...

Hope that there are no stains on your carpet and no strains in your back as a result of the dog sit. And a big CONGRATULATIONS on your expected new bundle to play with. My DN Cooper has just been over- he is such a crack up! Enjoy their pregnancy!

Congrats darce...isn't being an aunt great. Love the pages you did they are awesome. I totally relate to the dog thing. The puppy stage is the worst...but Samson isn't puppy so maybe it goes on for a while. I say skip the dog. you have bailey...
