Twilight Saga- B.Y.O.T.P.

When New Moon came out I was giving birth so I had to wait a few days to see it but when Eclipse came out, I really wanted the marathon experience!  I went to the movies with some sisters at 6 and laughed, sighed and swooned through Twilight, (it gets better every time!) New Moon and finally Eclipse before falling into bed this morning around 3- and it was so fun!!!  I highly reccommend it, I hope they do it again when the 4th one is released.  One suggestion, bring your own TP- with that many women in the theater at one time, they were running out by midnight. They even converted one of the Men's rooms into a Women's room!  I don't think I could have sat in line all night, but getting all caught up was the best! 
Oh Edward,
Oh Jacob,
Oh complicated, painful, monster love triangle...
I can't wait to see it again!

Tea Party Invites and kids crafting

Miss B is having a tea and swim party this year so we got to make some invitations today!  I cut the tea cup from the A Child's Year Cricut cartridge and then we stuck them to solid cardstock leaving the middle of the cup open so we could slide the "tea bag" card with the information inside.  I didn't want to make a trip to the scrapbook store so we used what I had, so they are all a little different but we love them!
It's way too hot to do anything outside except swim, so the kids have been getting creative- I went through my paper stash and collected scraps for them. Miss B wanted me to show the cards she made:
I especially like the "Be Happy" cards, how true, "be happy and you will have a better life!"  And the pop-ups too!
Miss G created some masterpieces on the Doodle Pro to share:

Oh what do you do in the summertime?

My husband would say that I'm addicted to Dr. Pepper, but I think worse is my mild fixation with the scrapbooking deal a day sites!  I really have to go check these sites first thing in the morning almost every day! 
Peachy Cheap
Flowers to Flourishes
Crafty Steals
Scrapbook Steals
Crop Chocolate
I have ordered from a few things from them too. I love getting a deal and I just have to check once a day and I'm good- Crop Chocolate however is a little different because they change deals throughout the day, randomly!  Plus, you can add something to your "LaCarte" and keep it there for a couple weeks before checking out, and add to it, and if you get up to $60, you get free shipping!!  So it's awesome, and dangerous.  All the other ones you have to buy it or it's gone.  I've had some good luck at Big Lots and Tuesday Morning finding great deals on supplies too.

A movie to rent & watch this weekend

For you: Ewan McGregor and a little love story, for your husband, a lot of action and a little violence.  I had never heard of it but really liked it.
I didn't think I would like it, I was trying to ignore it on the TV behind me last night, and at one point informed Sam that he should be glad I wasn't watching because I would have a million questions, but about 10 minutes later I found myself totally into it.  And then I went to watch the beginning that I missed today, and finished the whole thing again!  So go rent The Island.
(I did get some laundry folded in case you're thinking I'm totally lazy!)
