revealing! :)

I have been having the worst case of insomnia lately! Trouble falling asleep, waking up in the middle of the night, not being able to go back to sleep, flipping and flopping in the name it, I have experienced it in the last week. I am hoping I can get back on the sleep train *very* soon - this mama is T.I.R.E.D. *yawn*

Thought I would share my Little Red Scrapbook layouts for August! :) I got to play with the fabulous and awesome new Sassafras line, Indie Girl. I had soooo much fun with this kit!!!

First up:
A layout with a great picture of my grandpa with my kids. We went to visit to celebrate his 80th birthday and I am so thankful to have these pictures. :) I just love that die cut paper by MME. I might have to make another page with the second one I picked up.

A layout with some funny pictures of Layne enjoying his first bowl of homemade ice cream!! The title is what he said after he ate his first bite. So cute!! :) He makes me laugh everyday.

One last one:

Tried some new splatter misting here! Had fun just adding little bits and bobs onto this one. :) A page about Bayleigh and her cousin - they have become good friends (read: a lot less fighting and bickering). We don't see them too often, so it is always fun for them to get together and play.

That's all for now....gotta go find my motivation to go to the gym. hehe Anybody seen it anywhere?!?!? *grin* Send it my way!

Bayleigh goes to school this afternoon to meet her teacher - so it should be a fun afternoon filled with excitement about the upcoming school year!

Happy Friday everyone!

Until next time...

checking in before checking out! :)

Life at the Wildes' casa has been INSANE lately!!!

We have:
* sent Bayleigh to her first sleepover camp! (EEEKKKK!!)
* did a 2-week stint of swimming lessons
* went and visited the in-laws twice
* survived planning and executing Vacation Bible School at church
* celebrated the 4th of july - and now I must note that Layne is OBSESSED with fireworks now
* said goodbye to our favorite Jeep after 10 years (forced goodbyes are the most paintful *wink*)
* purchased a new truck
* shopped for a new truck (need I say more?!?!?!?)

I have:
* worked out every week for 8 weeks
* lost 14 pounds *big HUGE grin*

We are feverishly packing to go on our annual lake vacation tomorrow. Most of the big stuff is done....just doing the last minute stuff! And listening to Layne hit his terrible twos in stride! Oyyy, I am so *NOT* ready for this. hehe

I have some pics to share...and then I have to commence the packing once again. *dry heave*

We have spent LOTS of time in the water this summer. It has been soooo hot. Unbearably hot, really. The humidity is stifling and we just go out for about 45 minutes and are done for the day.

Hope that you have a great weekend....we will be back next week from our vacation! I am sure I will have many updates to share then. :)

Until next time....
