Hi, guys!

Looks like once a month posts are all your gonna get from me. LOL Its not intentional - but that’s just the way it has turned out for the last few months. All the months just seem to run together anymore. I think it has a LOT to do with me working 9 hour work days. But I guess that’s life, huh! So . . . what have I been up to the past month? Well - the usual stuff, and then taking pictures and a tiny bit of scrapbooking! Also, I have had some new visitors to my home (outside, anyway). Hummingbirds!

I have been trying to get them to come and see me for a while now and they have finally figured out that I have food - and it must be good food because there is a steady stream of them all throughout the day! I have no idea how long they are here for, but I am enjoying them. I put the feeder right outside my window where I work so I can enjoy them the most.

Aside from taking pictures of my new little friends, I have been visiting my local park and taking pics of all the pretty spring and summer flowers blooming there.  I just love taking pictures of flowers! Here is a picture of a Jackson Perkins rose. I can’t remember the name of this one but I thought it was beautiful! I just love those two colors together! I wish I had a green thumb and could grow these myself.

At the beginning of the month, I went to St. Louis and met some Peas (from Two Peas in a Bucket) and we took lots of pictures together. It was a fun weekend of enjoying my favorite hobby with others who enjoy it as well! Some of the girls brought their children to model for us so we could practice. Here is one of my very favorite ones – this little girl was just the cutest!

Then this past weekend, I went to Springfield, MO to Scrap-A-Palooza - a big crop held by Scrapbook Generations. My sweet friends Nikki and Katrina invited me to come and spend the day scrapbooking with them. I have only been to 3 crops so far but this one was the best one ever - they had shopping, instructional videos, tons of food, tons of outlets to plug everything in, we each had a big cropping space, and of course, the CHOCOLATE fountain! If you have never been to one and live in the area, I highly recommend going! Its tons of fun! The only downside was the couple of minutes when the power went out. haha Plus its a 5 1/2 hour drive from me- but that didn't stop me!

Well, I'm out of here - my comfy bed is calling my name! Talk to you soon!
