High/Low - August 8th + Freebie

Yay it's Friday again! I love weekends because it means that my hubby doesn't have to work and we can be together as a family for 2-3 days! Love it!


My LOW for this week - well let's just say that it has to do with that time of the month and leave it at that.


My HIGH for this week - It's no secret that my hubby and I's favorite thing to do together is watch movies/tv shows. This week we have gotten into a habit of after the kids are in bed we have watched at least one episode of a tv show in bed together. I love cuddling up and watching movies together...just is so fun! This week it has been Eureka and a little bit of Buffy (see below).


So one of the things I do to get creative is that I watch movies/tv shows as I design. My laptop screen is usually half used to design and the other half is a little screen to watch movies on. I don't know why that works for me, but it does. So I have spent hours and hours watching movies/tv and getting projects done. My most recent thing is that I have really gotten into watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. I NEVER would have believed that I would want to watch these shows - but in combination of really loving Stephanie Meyer's Twilight Book Series and loving David Boreanaz on Bones (yea, got a little crush going right now on David), I decided to give it a shot. And now I am totally hooked. I can hardly pry myself away from my computer. Right now I am on Buffy Season 6/Angel Season 3 and I have just really enjoyed it. I am amazed how much I get into tv shows..the characters truly become real to me and it's really great that I can just go get involved in something else for awhile before having to get back into my real world. Yep, I watch way too much tv!

We are leaving in about an hour to go to meet with JJ's teacher for this upcoming school year. JJ is going to a new school - a special autistic small group classroom, so I am really hoping that it will good for him. I can't believe he starts 1st grade on August 18th!

I'm trying to decide whether or not to get Beth into a preschool this year. I hadn't really thought about it until yesterday, so I'm really late going on it. She would love it and it would probably be nice to have a couple of days a week that she could go be with friends and learn. Unfortunately we are back to only having 1 working vehicle right now and Joey usually takes it to work, but maybe we could work something out a couple days a week. Now to find something inexpensive, but worthwhile and available here in the Orem/Provo - anyone know of one?


So I have been working on a new kit. It is due August 15th and will be the 3Scrapateers Half-n-Half Deal on August 26th, so I got just a week left to get it done, but I think I can make it. As a sneak preview, I have created a little freebie for you all that coordinates with it. So look for SILLY MONKEYZ in the store soon!

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!
