pti march blog hop

well another month has flown by & it's time for the march papertrey ink blog hop. although it's officially spring, it's snowing right now where we live. i'm ready for the warm weather, but can't complain much because i've barely even seen snow this year!

the sequins on my card didn't photograph very well, but they are there. the one on the right of the balloon is actually a bright green one, and the two left of the sentiment are orange & fuchsia. i just attached them with a little 1/8in scor-tape. it seemed to work well, although it took more time to attach them that way, as opposed to a dab of glue of some sort...but that's ok.  the pattern paper with the cute little horse pattern is from the new dear lizzy line. i'm very bad about hording my paper so i want to start incorporating it more into my cards. if i don't use it, i'll keep it forever lol! and of course, the stamps are maile's new birthday style stamps. love em! ink is summer sunrise, smokey shadow & raspberry fizz.


well my mister officially has declared us farmers and went to the mill to buy baby chicks. we are going to raise them for eggs. we have 12 of them, and they're just under a week old. they are pretty cute, although it's going to be a lot of work...which i am kinda dreading somewhat. it's not that it will take a lot of time, it's just one more thing to worry about. once they start laying eggs this fall, i'm sure it will be worth it.

this past saturday, weston & i had a great day in louisville. we went to the mall to the apple store for a new macbook battery, then old navy, gap/gapkids, new york & co, eddie bauer, american eagle, archivers (yippee) and got chocolate chip m&m cookies from the booth at the mall that sells yummy cookies. we had so much fun. then we went to kohl's, and got some dinner at chick-fil-a. followed by a quick run through joanne fabrics. it's been a long time since i was shopping at the mall and thankfully westy was so good for me!

a couple weekends before that my sister, billie, kyle (her bf) and my brother, spenser, came to visit! it's been quite awhile since their last visit, so we enjoyed the company! on saturday the guys went fishing, while billie, weston & myself went to bardstown and walked around some of the little shops downtown, had a couple yummy cupcakes, went to the antique mall and then to zappos. i got a new pair of birkenstock sandals for cheap...gotta love that!
