late night ramblings

Today will be one of those "run around like a chicken with its head cut off" kind of days (ew...that's actually gross to think about).

Anyway, it's going to be busy.

Mikayla and I have dentist appointments in the morning which she has very seriously told me that she does NOT want to go to. Austin is going to be staying with my cousin for the 2 or so hours that we'll be gone and I'm a little nervous since he hasn't been left alone much without his big sissy AND his mommy.

After our appointment, it's straightening up the house time (it's spotless as I sit here typing, but you know how long that will last with 2 rascals running loose), cooking in the kitchen, and preparing for my event tonight! I am super excited to be hosting a Stampin' Up! card making night. During August and September Stampin' Up! is having a promotion called Just For Kids, so the theme of my card making night is Kid-Friendly Birthday Cards. My guests will be making 3 card designs (2 of each design) for $10 and will walk away stocked up on 6 birthday cards for all the little kiddos in their life (well, some of them at least)! All the supplies are ready and waiting for them. All you do is come over, eat food, stamp, have a chance to win a door prize, browse through the catalog if you want, and have fun with friends!

Here's a sneak peek at one of the cards we'll be making...

I've been staying pretty busy with Stampin' Up! but still enjoying it without getting too overwhelmed. I'm still posting on my SU! blog every now and then, so if you need a little card making inspiration pop on over there to check it out. I don't post every day, but I try to get something up at least once a week. You can check back tomorrow to see all of the cards we made tonight. Go HERE to see our creations!

In preparation, it feels good to know that the house is finally cleaned up, which I know Ryan is grinning ear to ear about (minus the part where he had to help). He says he likes it when I have people over because the house gets cleaned. No comment.

I guess there's really no point to this post other than to tell you that I'll be busy today and I'm still making my rounds to stop by and say hi to all of you who have come over to say hi to me! It would be a whole lot easier if you all just stopped blogging for a bit, so I can catch up. *wink*

Gotta love late night ramblings about nothing (12:14 AM to be exact).

And, just for fun (and because this post is a bit random anyway), I'll leave you with Mikayla's newest little obsession...dancing! She'll be starting a creative movement dance class in the Fall and she is super excited about it. I will definitely say that she has that creative movement thing going for her.

Here's the soon to be (in at least 15 years) contestant on So, You Think You Can Dance (I love that show!)

FYI: Don't mind the red face and the sweaty boy on the sidelines...we had just come in from the blazing heat outside!

You do have a lot going on today. I hope Austin does well with your cousin. I love the dancing and Mikayla fixing her hair during her performance.

Emily said...

Definitely sounds like a busy day! Hope the dentists goes well...our trips never do! ;)
She definitely has all the right moves and as I was watching the video, Melody came up to me and said, "I want to play with her!" ;P

Missy said...

I hope you'll find time to do something you like. That always makes me feel better. If I can just find 15 minutes or so to do something I like during my busy days, or well any day. Anyway, your stamping night sounds so fun.I'm sure you'll like that. I don't get to do those SU! workshops anymore since our demonstrator here just sells. She doesn't do any workshops.

Hope your day is great!

Missy said...

Almost forgot about the cute little dancin' girl. She's got the moves. Too cute!

vicki said...

Way to go Mikayla! You have all the moves. There may be a future in dance for you. :)

Hope your workshop is a success. Wish I could be there!

Wow, sounds like you will have a super busy day.
I hope that the party is blast. The cards look so cute.
Have a fabulous Thursday!

Dancin Queen! How cute is she? I hope she does well at the dentist!!

Rhonda said...

What a super star! She gots some moves! Austin has a few himself! ;o)

Good luck at the dentist! Hope you have a blast tonight! My mom suggested I have parties more often for the same reason. A clean house from top to bottom. Better go get at least one room clean today!

Katie said...

She certainly has some graceful moves 'huh? We'll watch for her SYTYCD debut.
Hope the dentist appt. went smoothly!

Kelli W said...

Sounds like you are going to be SUPER busy! That card is too cute! I hope you have a great time at your card making night!

Leah said...

What a cute card! Sounds like fun.
Sounds like everyone is having a really busy summer.
Back to school next week for us! :)

Russell Family said...

Busy, busy, life as a mom right?! Hope that you have a great workshop tonight, wish I could be there. I can't wait until we can get Alexis into a dance class because she loves to dance too!

He & Me + 3 said...

I recognize busy and girl you are busy. I love that rug and her dancing is so cute. She is precious with all that blonde hair. What a doll. Those cards are cute too.

Rachel Holloway said...

1. your house was spotless? SOOOO jealous. I don't know if mine has EVER reached that happy place! :)

2. I am thinking of a brilliant idea...stamp'n up road trip??? I LOVE your ideas and would be SO excited to sit down and spend the whole night gabbing with you and making fun things!

Lyndsie Miles said...

What a busy day! I love Mikayla dancing! It reminds me of my little McKenna.

Tammy Williams said...

I love that show too! She really is a good dancer. Maya just jumps up and down when she is dancing...haha.
