Date Night...and some other business

First off...please say a prayer for my friend Beth and her husband Bill today. Bill is having back surgery this afternoon. It all came on them pretty quick and I know they could use the support. Stop by her blog when you get the chance and send her some love!!
.............................

I finished another layout today for my new friend Stacy. I am super proud of this one!! This is one of the first complete layouts I have done without using anyone elses designs (i.e. the free scrapbook pages/elements anyone can download online). If you click on the image below (this is her header) you will go right to her page.


Carla and Kelly don't worry your designs are coming!!

Now for the really exciting news...I am going on a date tonight!!

I am so excited, I haven't been on one in ages. I have already picked out my outfit (my favorite jean skirt of course). And of course I have picked out his outfit as well - a gorgeous green and brown striped sweater with his fashionable jeans and really nice brown shoes. (control freak I know...) The plan - well after I pick him up, I am going to surprise him with a yummy dinner of pancakes (his favorite anytime of day) at Cracker Barrel, we will probably share the Maine Blueberry pancakes - sooooo good. Then we are headed up to Providence for a little shopping at the mall, complete with Ben & Jerrys Ice Cream and then, to end the night, a visit to Build-A-Bear, where, for the first time ever he will get to make his own stuffie...

oh wait....did I forget to mention that my date is with Tommy :) Well it is :)

Before Jack was born Tommy and I went on many dates, usuallly for a yummy breakfast. He was my favorite shopping buddy, and my little shaddow. Lately I realized that I haven't had the time I used to, and poor Tommy hasn't had a mommy and me day in a long time. I've decided we are going to take advantage of Daddy being out (he's going to a hockey game) and Jack spending the night at his PopPop's.

I am soooooo excited!!! I can't wait to take him out, he has no idea, it will all be one big surprise!!

Well off to do some more layouts.....

  1. super cute header...and christmas card. i just finished ours yesterday. now i have to get all ambitious and print them. i however, have highly debated emailing it and then telling people to print it themselves...don't think that's the nicest thing...but the easiest! :0) have fun on your date. i think that is an awesome idea, i do things like that with my oldest girlie all the time...pretty soon the others are going to want to do it too.

  3. What fun! I love going on "dates" with my kids one at a time. It is such a great idea and the kids love it so much when we spend special individual time with them. I know, because mine told me :) Have fun!

  9. The new blog looks great, very nice. I would love to learn how you get the borders around the 3 columns.

    Love your Christmas Card too, and hope you had a great time on your date. I was so thinking at first it was hubby.. I thought, how neat he likes pancakes for dinner, yum, me too. Hee Hee, I still did not get it until the end. The build a bear had me starting to think, then you spilled it. Got a chuckle out of it..
