The Promise to Blog

Geez, Louise! I can't believe that it's been this long since I've visited my blog. So much time had passed that I actually forgot the url for the darn thing....seriously. scrappy-something-or-another was all I had!

I am really going to try and be more diligent about posting. Seems like the days run together, then the weeks pass by, and before I've realized it, another month (or two or three) has passed. Hopefully I can keep up a bit better :)

The girls have been keeping me busy as of late. The transition from one to two kiddos has been easier sometimes more so than others. It's been a bit hectic, but really enjoyable. Camille is just the best big sister & Lily is such a perfect addition to our family. We are so incredibly blessed!

This week has been full to say the very least. Brandon had oral surgery on Tuesday, and has been pretty sore all week. Poor Daddy! Lily had her 4 month check-up on Wednesday. Our little chubba-chubba is weighing in at 17 lb 14 oz and is 25.25 inches long. She's the cutest little thing! She had her immunizations on Wednesday and has been a little cranky since then. Add to that the whole teething thing, and bless her - - she's been a bit difficult. She's the most precious thing though, and always seems to be smiling. Even when she's not feeling well.

I've also been working on a big project this week. I've finally decided to make the dining room into a playroom for the girls. I sold our dining room table & chairs and some other goodies on ebay to make some cash for the transformation. Because it's an open room and right off the foyer, I'm really trying to marry form & function. I'd love it to be one of those super-cute PBKids playrooms (without the Pottery Barn price tag ;). It's well underway and Camille is so excited to have a room for all her toys.

This week was also MOPS, which was lots of fun as always. We made a Scrabble tile pendant (which I had been dying to try). I used one of the background papers from Andrea Burns collab with Eva - Thankful. I love it!! In fact, I'm wearing this cute thing already today! *will post a pic a little later :)

Before I go, just have one thing to say...... GO TECH!! After last week's game against UT, Tech is in the #2 spot. You can bet we'll be watching the game today & rooting for the Red Raiders!
