A catch-up again!

Wow! It seems like I just post and by the time I get back here it's days again!

I really did have a wonderful birthday! Mum and dad came to watch the little ones and apparently, Nathan cried for about a half hour after Kyle and I left until he was ready for his nap!! Poor mum! The Mother's Day Tea was absolutely wonderful and I'll post some pics later for that and go into a little more detail. After George got home, we went out for dinner at White Spot and I had a fabulous veggie burger and fries! We came home and had Black Forest cake to top it all off!

Happy Belated Mother's Day to all the wonderful mums I know and that drop by my blog! I did the cards below for the current challenge at the Get You Scrap On challenge blog! The challenge is to do something for or related to your mum - cards, a layout, a gift, whatever! Come on over and play! The bottom card is for my mum and the top ones are for my MIL and sister!

We had a wonderful day yesterday as long as I discount the way I woke up and the day started! I woke up at 4am with what felt like a hole burning through my chest. It was my own fault too unfortunately! I'd had some Salt and Vinegar chips the previous night and then fell asleep on the sofa - not a good idea when you have a hiatus hernia! I was in so much pain and didn't have the medicine that I needed that I got up and got dressed and went to the closest 24 hours drug store to get it! After getting there and taking the medicine the second I got in the car, I started to feel better right away! I came home and went back to bed at about 6am!

I was awoken at 8am again by the boys and a plate full of homemade waffles and turkey sausages! The boys, including George, had all made pictures/cards for me the day before when I was at work and they're wonderful! I love my boys!! The rest of the day was pretty relaxing and I didn't even manage to get up enough energy to scrap like I'd planned! We went out after a nice dinner at home that George made and went for a little drive and got some Krispy Kreme doughnuts. The best part was that they were making the originals when we got there and Kyle showed me how they made them and explained the whole thing to me - so cute! He loves seeing how things are made!

I watched the Survivor finale and have to say that I was a little surprised at the winner! I loved the fact that it was all women at the end though and I think any of the last bunch deserved to be sitting there as the winner! I loved the speech that Ozzy did at the last tribal too!! Tonight is the Bachelor finale as well!!

OK, so I woke up this morning at the crack of dawn again with another "issue" and that is my throat is so sore that I feel like I can't/don't want to swallow. Guess I'll be making a trip to the doctor today because I won't be able to sleep tonight like this!

Oh and before I forget, since I'm already a day late, the winner of my little birthday RAK is

Happy Birthday!!!Happy Birthday!!!Hope you have a terrific day. From the sound of it, you will. On my birthday I would love to order in and cuddle up and watch a movie. Spells R&R in my book. NO, it has never happened.

Please e-mail me your address, so I can send something off to you!

I skimmed over your Survivor paragraph - I DVR'd the finale, and I haven't watched it yet. :)

It sounds like you had a great Mother's Day! Mmmm, Krispy Kreme!

Love those cards! Sounds like you had a nice birthday and Mother's Day!

Hey, I won the birthday RAK! Goody, goody! I'm glad your birthday was fun and Mother's Day ended up great. A Hiatus Hernia is no joking matter (as I'm sure you know). I heard if you lift the head of your mattress a little (so it's sloping downward)it helps.

What a great few days you've had! I too was surprised at Survivor :) What did you think of The Bachelor?
