When you're a working Mom, I think you cherish long weekends just a little bit more. Oh how wonderful it would be to have an extra day each week to do stuff with/for the kids. It would be heavenly!
Joe is currently upstairs making an apple crisp for my sister (yes....she seems to think she should have this dish that we usually make all Fall/Winter in the spring! lol). She's just home from finishing her first year of university so she's probably starved and all.....we'll be nice to her.
Olivia has a little surprise for her grandparents and her daddy for Easter tomorrow. I'm in on the surprise. If I can figure out how to do it, I will post it here for you all to view. It's AMAZING. I am so proud of that girl.
I've done a few layouts that I will take pictures of and post soon! Theya re on my camera and I will download after taking some Easter pictures tomorrow.
And a little surprise for me. A while back I was contacted by Caz at Aussie Scrap Source for permission to use one of my layouts on their blog for a Pink Paislee feature. How cool! It completely slipped my mind and I went back the other day to have a look at their blog and found this (scroll down a bit and you'll see Bman's handsome face) :
CHECK IT OUT HERE
I was very honoured to be asked! And I love it even more when it's a boy/masculine page that is chosen. Those are the layouts that don't come easy to me so having it pay off is SUH-WEET! Thanks again Caz! :)
Also, a "hello" to my new friend Anna who is halfway around the world! Glad to know you girl!
Happy Easter to all! REALLLYYYYY slow long weekend to all as well! Back soon with some layouts.

Took the kids out for new rollerblades today. They fell in love with the idea of rollerblading while visiting their cousin Matthew in Florida in November. Not sure why we never thought to get them blades..... but the beautiful weather sparked the memories and so off we went to buy some! Brendan's been out twice today. I'm sure Olivia would have joined him if it wasn't for the phone call from her bff to come play. My little social butterfly! Brendan's hockey season is over. He's made the competitive soccer team so that has already started. Olivia will be starting her soccer season in May and Brendan starts 4-on-4 hockey next week! Brendan was also in need of a new bike (lucky kid this week!) so Joe took him to buy a new one this week. Bman and I were out last weekend bikeriding. We were gone a good 1.5 hours and it was so nice to just be me and him. We had a lot of fun. Things got off to a rocky start however....as my lace got caught in my peddle and I fell right into a puddle. LOL - it's funny....now! ;) Thought I would stop by and add some new layouts!
This next one is a layout I created with AMM’s April kit. New Lillybee and Crate Paper! So fun to work with:
