long weekend

the kids are out today for mlk. so it's been a long weekend. we really didn't do much. ken took me out to dinner saturday while miranda did the babysitting. oh the joy of having a teenager! had to much to drink at dinner and was feeling the after affects sunday.
after lunch i took the girls to get hair cuts. the younger ones needed it pretty bad but miranda didn't. so i told her if she wanted one she could use her own money. let me just say it is all drama when she gets a hair cut. it is never what she wants. so our rule is if she gets it cut there is no complaining. i don't want to hear it! well she decided to get just a trim and cut her bangs. i knew going in she would not like how her bangs would turn out. but you know as a mother, they never listen to ya. when we got in the car i could tell she didn't like it. i told her to say something now because once we leave the parking lot there is nothing i could do. she said it was fine. ok. later she leaves to go to spend the night with a friend. and as soon as she left a thought popped in my head 'she is going to cut her bangs' and i thought of calling her and telling her not to touch them but for some reason i decided not to. she texts me later in the night a told me what she did. yep she cut them! we as adults have all done this and know hair grows back. well in the eyes of a 13 year old it is the end of the world. 'everyone is going to make fun of me' she said. i told her she made the decision to cut them so she has to live with it. they really don't look as bad as she made it sound. yeah they are a little choppy but nothing to dramatic.

on to more exciting news...BASB has it's new challenge by ki. you can only use 'ONE' piece of pp. no card stock. nada. go on over and check it out. there's a nice rak too! here is my layout...

and the word prompt for today's potd is 'DREAM'. you can go to the mb and see all the prompts for this week. i've have done 18 straight days so far. i know that is not a lot but for me it is. i must say i'm very impressed with myself. i don't always use the prompts but they help a bunch! so thanks denise!

EDIT: those sunglasses k is wearing...the dog ate them today. along with a pair of gap jeans, underwear and a couple of socks!


i thought since one of the basb gals pointed out that it was national popcorn day, my potd...

those are not bruises on kimber's arm. these two have been grounded to their rooms most of the day for beating the crap out of each other with their shoes and throwing the remote at each other. kimber got into her sister's stamps and decided to decorate herself. how she got into her sister's stamps while she was ground to her room, you ask. ????? your guess is as good as mine!

LOve it all! Girls can be handfuls (I know. I was one. My poooooor mom!). The hair will grow out, the stamps will wash off... LOL

I love the LO and the photo!

i hope miranda's hair drama has toned down a bit.
kimber is going to be a stampin' up demonstrator. she won't need paper. it will be body art.
my phone is in the truck. has been since yesterday morning when i got the oil changed. i'm lame.

Oh I wish I would have grown up with a sister around to steal stamps from! Your layout looks amazing.. one sheet of pp? Yikes. I don't think I would be able to come up with anything remotely that good!
