Da, da, da-da . . . Da, da, da-da . . .

Hey there bloggers!  I'm missing y'all and I know I'm missing out on some great projects and cards you've worked on to.  When I get a chance, I'll be sure to check out your blogs, but in the meantime, life's been hectic and crazy in our household.  In the madness, I was able to make a quickie card for my husband's cousin who got married this Thursday.

I hope you can see the embossing of the groom and bride on this card.  If not, it's there I promise.  I tried another white card -- in fact, it's more like cream color. 

We've had appointments earlier this week to see the doctor and dentists.  Yippie, the kids have no cavities!  :)  I had met my girlfriend and her kids at the local mall . . . there is a dinosaur exhibit and a mini train ride.  The kids enjoyed that!  We took the monorail over to the other end of the mall and had some yummy Stone Cold ice-cream!  :) 

There was a dinner that my MIL threw for the bride and groom at our home.  The bride, who is formerly from Japan, had her family join us . . . it was a bridging of 2 cultures.  Then the next day was the wedding.  Beautiful! 

And today, I celebrate my 11th wedding anniversary!  Hubby and I are out to dinner for that!  Can't wait to grow older with him!  And finally, on Monday, we have my grandmother's funeral.  She will be laid to rest with no more suffering.  She was 92.

Sorry to bombard you with my long post.  I'm almost venting it all out . . . in fact, I am!  That's it for me now and I'll be back for my normal post on Tuesday night for La-La Land Crafts Blog.  Then till then . . . ta-ta!
