I know, I know. I need to update my blog! (Sending a HUGE shout out to those of you who reminded me this weekend!) Tee Hee Hee!

Life has been on overdrive for the last month – and especially the last week or so! We’re on the tail end of getting cleared out of the Marshall Creek house and into the Pine Ridge house. We’re hoping to have the Marshall Creek house listed this weekend so that I’ll be out there for Memorial Day house hunters.

We spent the last weekend in April celebrating Thomas’s 21st birthday with him and his friends. Dinner was delightful at Bagheri’s (as always) and his friends are definitely entertaining. I can’t wait to see what they’re like in 10 years – THAT will be really interesting!

Steve celebrated his 34th birthday on Thursday (June 3rd), but we had a little party Saturday night(yes, on National Scrapbooking Day – the horrors!). After spending the day over at The Scrapbook Pad (more on that fun in a moment), I busted a move home to get ready for his shindig – and what fun we had! A group of our friends joined us over at Chili’s for appetizers and dinner. Afterwards we moved the party over to the new house for a very casual fun time with cake and LOTS of Wii time. (Seriously, I think the Wii might possibly be the greatest entertainment purchase we’ve ever made. I had such fun watching everyone play with it!)

I had big plans on Sunday – but alas they fell to the wayside as I did something I don’t think I’ve ever done before. I slept all day long. Seriously. All. Day. Long. No joke. For anyone who knows me, I’m the girl who is ALWAYS moving. I don’t have a quiet moment often, and I almost always have more than one thing going on at a time. But, Sunday…it was all about me, my bed, and sleep. Amazing… We did have friends over for dinner though and we all enjoyed eating the queso, guacamole, chips, salsa, and other nacho toppings I had ready from the night before. Of course, there was lots more Wii’ing to be had.

Saturday was also National Scrapbooking Day. Yes, for those of you not in the scrapbooking world – there is such a thing. Amazing isn’t it? LOL! We (The Scrapbook Pad) started our weekend celebration early by having a “Night of Decadence” crop on Friday night. It was loaded with cheesecakes, fudge, fruit, éclairs, crème puffs, punch and chocolate – and oodles of prizes! I had a great time and I think the croppers did too.

Saturday was celebrated with a festive flair, Cinco de Mayo style. Our croppers enjoyed our festivities starting at 10am and running through midnight. We had all kinds of tasty foods (of course with Mexican food!), and treats – with oodles and oodles of great prizes and spot drawings. I didn’t stay for the whole party (due to Steve’s birthday bash) but had a great time while I was there.

Monday brought the contractors to install the sprinkler system. It’ll be great when they finish. It’ll be nice to not need to worry about the foundation (we don’t have foundation problems and are installing the sprinklers to avoid anything coming up in the future) or lawn. Also… it’ll be even better when the phone and cable lines get repaired (they accidentally cut them when digging for the sprinkler lines. Great. Just great.)

I’d share photos, but I broke the cord which charges the camera. Rather, somehow I managed to break one of the prongs that plug into the wall which connects to the cord that charges the camera… you get what I’m saying. So, I’m on the hunt for a new camera cord. Go me.

Thursday the new house gets painted – which at this point is a necessity as the paint on the chimney is peeling. We knew we were going to have to paint so this was planned. Unlike some of the other repairs we’ve had to do.

Other than that, there isn’t a whole lot going on. I keep really busy with everything and am really looking forward to having the Marshall Creek house listed so that I can take that task off of my ‘to do’ list.
