so, real life keeps getting in the way of all the things i'd rather be doing. work. play. work and play some more. so goes it, right?
little recap of the goings on here:

-maya is officially a redneck. just kidding. she just recently lost both of her top front teeth though, so she definitely resembles one lol. she even got to partake in a little photoshoot, highlighting such tooth loss, as witnessed above ^^
-olivia is doing great in school, sassy as ever. i swear that child is 25 and not 7, ha!
-art has been working lots, so i dont see him much, and when i do, hes usually preoccupied with his new BB 8900. happy early fathers day!
-i've been suffering from severe allergies, mostly in my eyes. its horrible. i've been taking allergy pills, as well as using drops. but still, its a PITA! i miss being able to wear eyeshadow without watery stains on it hahahaha. gross.
-here are some more pics of the photoshoot i mentioned before. tina in the same mommy group as i am, and she is just amazing! i loved watching her work with maya. anyways, here is her blog, definitely check her out if youre local to SLC.

this one of olivia and I, can I just tell you, bribing a 7yo is serious business! we tried bribing her with McD's, baskin robbins. nada. she wasnt interested in the least. finally she agreed to ONE picture, and it had to be with me. lame.
but, i have to say, she does look beautiful!

i'm off to get some work done, maybe. and hopefully to get my hair did. hehe.

and then..

so the MM warehouse sale. i got the carousel for $10. i was so stoked. and it looks lovely on my desk. dare i say, that i actually need more stuff to put in it? lol. i walked out of there with 4 items: the carousel, an album and 2 rubons/stickers. thats it. i know, crazy. i usually get ribbons and stuff, but i was on a strict budget that day, and it worked out. i dont feel like i missed out on anything great, except for maybe the slice, bc they had those for $99. oh well. maybe next year.

lets see..oh yeah. i scrapped. and i've been doing the LOAD at 2peas again. its nice seeing friendly and familiar faces there still. i hate that at sistv, i dont really recognize anyone anymore. so i guess 2peas will be my new/old home again. we'll see if i can keep up with the LOAD lol.
also, i got PSE 7..and i have no clue what i'm doing. i'm trying to get better at editing, but i'm not sure where to begin. I was okay with PSE 4, but its been about a year since i've used it..i've been just using Picnik, which is fine, but there are a ton of actions i'd love to put to i've been spending a lot of time online trying to find tutorials to help me along the way.
well, its nice out, so the kids are having otter pops and playing outside. think i'll go join them :)
