What's been keeping me busy...

Hey all,

So I've been hinting about something that has been keeping me super busy lately and here it is...

Our house is up for sale!

I only have a few minutes, since I have more sprucing and pillow fluffing to do, but I thought I would share the pics that our agent took of our home.

(click on the picture and it will take you to virtual tour and more pics, etc)
I'll be back soon to give you more details about our decision to move and how it's going.

My Secret Sister package arrived

Yesterday, as I was pulling away from my driveway to go pickup one of the kids from school, I saw the Postman pull into my driveway.  I quickly backed up and asked if he needed a signature for the package he was dropping off.  He said "no, I'll just leave on your porch." Good thing, cause I was already running late.  Anyhow, as I drove down the street I kept an eye on my rear view mirror to see what he was dropping off.

I figured it was my Secret Sister package, since it was the only thing I was expecting delivery on.

I signed up with Carla's Secret Sister Swap this year.

When I opened it up... I found this note.

It's from Amber at Ups and Downs of Twenty-One.

And here are some goodies I found inside.

A lovely mauve crotchet scarf.  So soft and pretty.  I have a feeling I'm going to have to fight both of my girls for it though.  But I think I'm keeping it for myself and lend it to them for good behaviour. :)

A novel that I have been dying to read.  "Safe Haven" By Nicholas Sparks.  This author also wrote "The Notebook" and "the Lucky One" and I love both of those books and movies too!

I can't wait to start reading it!

Tons of Scrapbooking goodies.  There were embellishments kids pages and puppy too.

And a Scrapbook Binder and more ribbons and papers.

In my Secret Sister Questionnaire I stated that I strongly disliked the colour "peach". Back in the 1980's, I wore one-too-many peach bridesmaids dresses with large bows in the back. lol Of course Amber was quite apologetic about including some paper in this colour.  I had to laugh, because it is such a pretty colour, as long as I don't have to wear it. lol

And here is the entire package of goodies.

Thanks again Amber, I loved everything, even the peach coloured paper. ;)

And, I loved the pictures on your blog of your Siberian Husky puppy.  What a sweety.  I have a special in my heart for Huskies, since we had one for 13 years.  They are wonderful, faithful friends.

The Remix...

Hey there!

I know I've been silent on here... again... but I have a good reason.  I should be able to share by the end of the week.

Anyways, today I thought I'd share something quite fun.  Well, fun for me anyways.

I have two girls in this house that are quite obsessed with One Direction.  I mean "those-boys-walk-on-water" obsessed.  I roll my eyes every time they are mentioned, but I remember back in the mid-late '80's another girl that was  quite obsessed with another boy band.  Well, that boy band is all grown up now, and they are still putting a big huge smile on my face.

The Thrifty Decor Chick recently shared this on her blog and it made my day.

Hee hee...  Aren't  they just cuter with age.  That girl dancing is me if I were to even have a sip of an alcoholic beverage.  ( I don't drink anymore) Isn't she fun??

So, were you a New Kids on the Block fan back in the day?  Or are you still, just like me? Or are you too embarrassed to me admit? lol

Excuse me, while I go watch the video again, and again, and again.
