Time to get a new picture on here

I've been told Charlie looks like a girl in this picture, but I think it's cute. The cashier at the grocery store asked me if he was a girl yesterday and he was wearing a totally blue and white boy outfit. Nothing new to talk about... he looks like a boy for sure in this one:

They're baaaaaaaack....

I don't know what it is but I love these dolls! I don't usually care about the toys in my kids Happy Meals (in fact I usually can't wait to throw them away) And I'm not even a fan of the Wizard of Oz necessarily, but when they have these dolls, I find a sudden urgent need to go to McDonalds, frequently!
We totally need the blue monkey and the green man.

Denim and a movie

Quick- head into your closest American Eagle Outfitters and try on a pair of jeans and you'll get a free movie ticket! Valid every day of the week, even on special engagements. If you buy a pair of jeans, you'll get 2 free movie tickets. I saw the sign up in the store this morning and ran in. Now if I can get Sam to go try on a pair we'll have a free date! They even had some jeans on the clearance rack for $20 if you need them. The tickets are good through 9/21 and they are only having them in store "while supplies last."

CPS #81

Made a card with the CPS blog sketch this week. The quote was downloaded from the Designer Digitals freebie gallery, and I tried out the Glitz Roller Doodles for the squiggles around the striped paper- fun!
I have a new obsession, the "Glossy Accents" clear puffy paint stuff and I tried to put it over the word "mother" and it didn't go well, it might be because it's so late, but I couldn't keep it in the lines for some reason. Oh well, I still like the card, and I love the glossy stuff for other things.


My camera keeps disappearing, and then when I find it there are mysterious pictures... I found some evidence:
And this time there was some video footage of her accomplice:
I was wondering why my camera lens was all cloudy...

The greatest thing since sliced bread

I just signed up for Carbonite and am really excited about it. You download it and it automatically backs up your computer online so you never have to think about it- until the worst happens, and then you don't have to worry because everything is safe with them. Sign up or find out more by clicking HERE.You may recall that earlier this year I lost everything on my laptop when the hard drive suddenly crashed, for no reason. Luckily I regularly uploaded photos to Shutterfly, so I only really lost a few of those, (but my original digital files are gone, I can only get those printed from Shutterfly now) You'd think I would have constantly been backing up but I only did it once before now- it's a pain! I love that I don't have to think about this and all my pictures, music, Tax and financial info and digital scrapbook stuff is totally safe now! And it's only $50 a year. That's a bargain.
