It's a Hard Knock Life

I just noticed that this is my 99th post....so I decided that my next update will be when I finally Pay-it-Forward and offer up a RAK to 3 fortunate souls. More details on that next time.

This will be a photo update blog, lots of randomness, but with pictures! Sorry, I haven't had my coffee yet this morning, so my wit and general joviality haven't woken up yet.

In case you're wondering what's up with the "Annie" song on my playlist....lately that movie has been playing 24/7 at our house. Maggie has decided it's the best movie ever, and Alex likes it, too. And of course, Rick and I both secretly LOVE musicals, so our whole family has "Annie" on the brain....pretty much all day long. My favorite song from that movie is "Maybe," but Project Playlist didn't have it. Bummer.

Totally forgot that yesterday was the last day of February so I completely spaced on my GutterGirlz layout. The new prompt is UP now, be sure to check it out HERE. This is the layout I did for this Friday's prompt at Lotus Paperie to use doodled circles, and I LOVE how it came out!


I have a new obsession with Polaroid cameras. They're the coolest looking contraptions evah, and I just want them to look cool on a shelf in my office. BUT. When Miranda and I were thrift store shopping yesterday, she found the larger of the two cameras for me, and that thing is in perfect condition. AND it has film. So, I just need to get some batteries for it, and I think I'll be taking some Polaroid pictures! SO excited about that.


This morning, Alex asked if we could have cinnamon rolls. Since I was busy with a project, I told him, Sure...as long as you make them. He had no problem with that. Look how proud he is!

Maggie helped with the frosting. And NO, I didn't have any. Didn't really even want any! I've lost 10 pounds so far, and I really don't want to mess up my progress. I can have cinnamon rolls once I'm skinny again, and I'm cool with waiting.

Speaking of baking, I picked up some cookie and brownie mixes and plan to make a cooking show with Maggie and Jack. I got this idea from my Rachel, whose husband makes "Cooking with Macs" videos that are just hilarious. Our show will be called "In the Kitchen with Maggie & Jack" and it will air on YouTube. Coming soon to a PC near you. (Or a Mac, if you're one of those people.)

I'm making progress on Maggie's quilt! Almost halfway done now.

I'm making a quilt for baby Sophia NOW(just taking a little coffee break, then I'll sew the squares together)...and her baby shower is only a few short hours from now, so I need to get back to it! Hope you have a happy Sunday!

You're right to be proud of this layout, it is perfect! All of the circles with the glasses and the strip journaling is awesome! Neat find on the cameras, I love finding stuff like that when I'm out and about.
