So I just have a few things to write about tonight then its time for bed.  Oh also sorry the FFF post was so late today.  We spent the day over at Grandma and Grandpa's.  We were having such a wonderful time that my sister and I seriously didn't want to come home.  Probably the reason we got back so late.

First though and I can't believe I forgot to tell all of you this when we got the news.  Yesterday my Mom and I found out that orientation for work is August 11th!!!  Still a ways off but really glad to finally know whats going on.  It also kind of works out for me since I have to go all the ways to Las Cruces which is... I think like a 9-10 hour drive from here, for an orthodontist appointment on the 8th.  Its where I used to go before we moved and my Dad already has them paid off so there will be no changing of orthodontist.  Plus last time they told me I only have like two or three more visits anyways.  Woot woot!!!  So I won't have to ask for time off work and I won't have to rush there and back.


So like I mentioned today we spent most of our day at Grandma and Grandpa's house visiting, swimming, making monster cookies, eating subway, and coloring Mandalas.  It has easily become one of my favorite new pass times that is for sure.  I had never heard of Mandalas to be perfectly honest but Grandma had a whole book full of blank ones and she let us make copies of them!  So I have decided to try something new with the blog again. It will be Mandala Monday.  Since both Caitlin and I have so many of them now to color I thought it would be a fun new art project to share with all of you.  It is actually very meditative in my opinion I enjoy it a lot and I am very excited for Monday so I can show you guys the one that I am working on right now.

Also Grandma spent the last week in Florida with some friends and her daughter and grand daughter.  They all had a great time went to Disney world and did all sorts of fun things.  She brought My Mom, Sister and I back presents as well too our surprise.  She got my Mom this really pretty hand made bag that you could easily keep your makeup in along with a copy of her own book signed.  I believe the book she gave my Mom is called "From Heaven to my Heart, God's Journey With Me". Here is a little tid bit I found about her via google search  Then she got both Caitlin and I these beautiful hand crafted boxes.  Man she peg us pretty well I absolutely love it.  Now I just need to figure out what to put in it.

While starting to make a TON of copies of Mandalas for Caitlin and I, I noticed this little guy sitting on the desk.  I couldn't help but comment how beautiful he was.  Then Grandma told me she had in fact been looking for a home for him and offered him to me. O.O Needless to say I had no idea what to say other than ask if she was sure which she said we would call it a house warming gift and that yes she was sure.  All I could say was a huge Thank You and act like a little kid who was just offered a huge lollipop.  He will stay with Grandma though until we get moved into the new house.

Isn't he cute? 

And look he will keep my treasure safe.

Anyways tomorrow we are going back to Grandma and Grandpa's house to visit, color more Mandalas and hopefully I can make Oreo Cookie Desert for them. =)  I hope that you all had a fantastic Friday and will have an amazing weekend.  Pleasant dreams everyone!



  1. I can't wait to see all your mandalas! Very cool! And, I love all your gifts from your Grandma! Very special! You are lucky!

  2. I am so excited to share them with you guys! I can't wait for Monday. Its going to be hard to only focus on one Mandala a week. I am the type that when I get "in the zone" I will work on a project until it is completely done. If I do that then I will have to wait forever just to start a new one and the wait to be able to post a picture of it on Mondays too! Will drive me nuts. lol Maybe I should look into other projects as well. Maybe the Butterfly Effect.
