where has the time gone,,,

my, oh my, where has the time really gone?? Right now it's Sunday in my home. It was the first official day I got to relax! I had a five day weekend due to Thanksgiving and spent three of those days eating turkey!! Wednesday, dinner at a friends house. Thursday, dinner with my husbands family. Friday, dinner with my family. Let me tell you, it was exhausting! Saturday, it was my mom's birthday so we celebrated with dinner and chuck e. cheese! we had fun, and she had a blast!! So today, Sunday I got to relax!! (by the time you read this, it will be Monday) Actually,, I didn't really relax much :-(,, I had to clean house,,grr,, I scrubbed and scrubbed all day long!!! I really, really, really, dislike having to keep my condo clean everyday to show it! But, we are finally moving this weekend!!! I feel like I've been saying I'm moving for like a year now, but that day is finally here!! I'm so happy to get it done and over with. Im ready to close this chapter in my life and open a new one!
That being said, Im excited because I have so many ideas churning in my brain right now, of things I want to accomplish in 2011!! Im excited!! Are you excited for 2011??

have a great day!!
love, nely

project monday,,,

today is Monday, this day is not my most favorite day of the week. Mostly because I know that it means that I have to go back to work. But, I am trying to keep Monday positive by thinking that it's a fresh day!,, A day that starts the week to new adventures! Let's begin Monday with a little project I am fond of. It's called Your Appointment with Friday. It's put on by the lovely girls of Bubblegum Life. On Friday, they give you a photo prompt and on Monday you come back and share it. This time around it was Autumn hues. So below you will find my favorite colors right now for this fall season! The top photo I took of these tiny flower bushes that grow right outside my house!,,the second is of a quilt I made a while ago. The colors are perfect for this season!!,,thanks for stopping by,,have a happy Monday!!

I really, really wanna make one of these!!,,one of these days!

I've been dreaming of making a teepee ever since I saw rachel make one for elsie!,, It just looks like such a dreamy spot to relax and read a book!,, even play with my nieces and nephews!,,im sure they would love it! i promised my husband I wouldn't build one until we moved,,he didn't want to lug more stuff around. But now that the move is getting closer and closer, I'm dreaming of making my very own!!,, speaking of, today they came and picked up my dining room table and coffee table :-( we sold them, since we wont be needing them anymore. It made me really, really sad. So I'm sitting here on the floor where my dining table once stood making this post. But I have to look at the bright side,,I will be moving into a bigger home and it's just a new spot to decorate!!,, I just hate moving,,i'm not looking forward to it at all!!,,but what are you gonna do,,life goes on!!,,,for now, I'll keep dreaming about making my very own teepee!!

It's beginning to look a lot like,,,

Christmas!!,,I have to say, next to Halloween, this is my absolute favorite holiday! And I know we haven't even gotten thru Thanksgiving yet, but all the stores seem to be filled with holiday stuff already!! It looks like this year though we aren't gonna have a christmas tree :-( Because of the move and all. It just won't make any sense. But it doesn't mean I can ooh and ahh at everyone elses decorations!! I think my favorite part is driving around at night and just seeing all the homes lit up with Christmas lights!!,,I love it!!,, love this season!!

alright, now if I could only get myself to go downstairs and do some scrapbooking!!,,i need some inspiration! Im experiencing a drought.

When we get together, watch out!!,, if my drink has been sitting to long, she always asks me, "do you need a nipple for that drink?". well the other night, she did just that, got me a nipple!,,lol.

current dreams,,,

Yesterday, I woke up in a super happy, feel good mood! I'm not sure what it was, but I just felt good, happy for who I was and the life that I live. I took a drive and my brain started daydreaming,,

at some point, I would really, really, really, love to dye my hair red.
i want my mouth to be full of this stuff,, i love it,,
i would really love to live or at least stay in one of these one day,,
i want this to be my backyard,,,
and I want my home to be filled with these,,

ahhh, a girl can dream, can't she?

comfy cozy,,,

comfy cozy is the newest prompt from the project monday girls. I must admit, i'm really liking these prompts. Mostly because I'm trying to learn my camera and the prompts are a great way for me to try and capture moments. For me, comfy cozy is a piping hot mug of green tea, with a squeeze of lemon and some sweet honey,, and I have to say, that I am absolutely loving this weather right now. It's perfect blankie weather!!,,have a great Monday everyone!!!,,

my second birthday,,,

ahhhh,,it's thursday!,,that means I'm only one day away from Friday and the weekend is near!!! I love the weekends! I wanted to share a layout I recently made. I made it for the pink ninja addicts using the latest kits!

I started off by using the white glitz paper as my background,,you can't see it in the pick but it has a design on it. I glimmer misted in black and red. i then took the envelope, paper and teresa collins chipboard pieces and started layering!! using the envelopes was my favorite part!!,,and I super love, love, love that plaid paper!!,,and I die for those prima sparkle centers!!,,and the cute star it!!,,my bestie went on a treasure hunt and found them!!,,i love them!!,,there's also a hot pink/black one in the kit!!

fall day,,,

fall is here, and for me that means a visit to the pumpkin patch! Every year we visit Bates Nut Farm. We buy some corn kernels, feed the animals, eat some yummy, bad for you, but tastes so good food and pick out some pumpkins!! It was a fun adventure running through the patch trying to find the perfect pumpkin. It was a fun relaxing day,,,i loved it!

why the picture of the sandals you ask??,,, well some sweet friends have come up with these picture prompts to get your imagination rolling. I thought it was a super cute idea, and found myself thinking all weekend about what prompt. So, i don't really have some legit fall shoes,,I live in my sandals all year round,,plus it was hot today,,,so this is what i came up with!!,, thanks carrie & gloria!,,love this idea,,can't wait till next Friday!!!

happy fall,
love, nely

playing catch up,,,

so a lot has gone on in my life,,,september came and went with a blink of an eye,,, we put our condo up for sale,, and a very nice lady bought it!! {well, technically it's not hers yet cuz we still have to go thru the whole process of appraisal, inspection,,etc.,,etc.,,}, so hopefully, fingers crossed, everything goes smoothly!!,, September was my husbands 30th birthday!,,he is sooo, so, so calm. I wanted to do some crazy thing and go on some crazy thing and all he wanted was to swim with whale sharks and vacation in palm springs. So off we went, caught a plane to Atlanta, spent 4 days there, came back drove to Palm Springs where we rented a house,, baked and swam in the pool for 4 days!!,,let me tell you, for me, this was very, very hard!!! Anyone that knows me, knows how restless and full of energy I am! to sit by the pool 24 hours a day and do nothing was extremely hard for me! I got cranky from it and my husband couldn't understand why i couldn't just relax,,but it's just not my nature. All in all, it was a great vacation, and Im super happy my husband had a wonderful time!,,

here he is backstage, ready to go into the tank!!,, it's cool, you can see the whale sharks swimming up top,, they are so friendly,,,

and i really want one of these as a pet,,,
one of the many sharks in the tank,,,a hammerhead shark came underneath my husband!!,,it was cool,,my husband got scared and jerked, so the shark got scared and swam away,,
and here are the whale sharks!!,,they are awesome!!,,this one was 24 feet long!!!,,in the ocean they grow anywhere from 30 to 35 feet!,,can you imagine swimming in the water and this guy swimming up to you???,,

and last, but not least!,, pink ninja addicts has released their newest kit!!,,*she wolf* the main kit, is perfect for this halloween season!!,,
here is the add-on kit,,*venice queen*
stay tuned for some layouts i created using this kit!!

happy fall,,,
