Monday Mumblings

Man, oh man, it's Monday. Another weekend come and gone, way too fast. I spent all day Saturday in my jammies watching movie after movie. Something about the rain puts me in a comatose state.

On Sunday, my hubby and I got the itch for some puppy love, so we headed out to the new local Humane Society. I was so surprised at how nice and clean it was! The only other shelter I had ever been to was pretty yucky, so it put a smile on my face to see such a nice facility. There were also alot of empty rooms, which means that lots of dogs had been adopted! We wandered around to pet and play with the pups, and dreamed about getting another dog (don't worry, Mom, not yet!). That won't happen until we finally buy a home with a big back yard. We already have our 2 pups at home, plus we will have my sister's lab for a couple of months in the Spring.

Speaking of, look what came in the mail the other day! My sister lives in Okinawa, Japan and is moving back next summer. She has a beautiful black lab named Holly. The airlines won't fly dogs in the summertime because of the heat, so I get to go to Japan and pick her up over Spring Break! You have no idea how excited I am! Only 2 more months!!!

So, remember how the other day I had forgotten to take pictures of our adorable 100 scrapbook 100 year olds? Well, I remembed today. Take a look!

This guy was actually from my neighbor's room, but I had to show you. Look at that face...ha! (Hi, Alexis!)

They all turned out so cute and different, and are lining the first grade hall as we speak :)

BTW, I am totally stoked to have 33 followers!!! I think that is pretty awesome. I am already planning my first giveaway, when I reach 100 followers. So get the word out! I am also working on my first unit for my TPT store. It's a Valentine's unit, so hopefully I will have that done by the end of the week.

Well, I'm off to get a haircut! Thinking I am going to chop it all off.....stay tuned for pics! Oh, and today is my sweet niece Alyssa's 7th birthday. Happy birthday, Alyssa!!! I love you!!!

This was taken last summer at Stone Mountain. Please excuse the blue tongues :)
