Fun weekend so far! We had a surprise birthday party for Bev on Saturday. It was fun!

Krystal Hartley-Mixture of stuff

Sooo love this picture. It's me and my favorite teacher of all times at a dedication ceremony in her honor. I didn't know this picture was even taken until I got home and was looking at the photos that I thought I took. I left my camera with another teacher as I was asked to pull the sheet off her bench during the presentation. Mrs. Darr must have taken this for me with my camera. I loved it! I did this layout as a demo from my Monday Challenge on KH blog. Love it!

Last week of SCHOOL!

Wahoo! I can't begin to tell you how excited I am for summer break this year! Looking forward to just hanging out at the pool and having fun with the boys.

I'm off to the doctors to prove to my INS company that I am in fact losing weight. UGH...seriously...I have to pay my dr to tell you that? Grrr....

Maybe the wellness, cheaper plan wasn't all it's cracked up to be? Oh well, it just shows me I am doing it and my scales don't lie. I hope! LOL

It's HOT today! Love it!

I did it...I hit 55 pounds gone!! STILL...not at my half way goal yet. But close!!! It's been an uber stressful few days/week. Work is topsy tervy, extended family is jacked up, and I am feeling stressed beyond measure. I took the boys out of school on Wednesday and we spent the day at Henry Ford Museum with Aunt Barb and Jackson. It was so much fun and I am glad I did it. I asked both teachers before I did it and they both agreed it would be fine. I just needed a break and I know the boys did too. So we spent the day having fun and just enjoying each others company and not worrying about ANYTHING. It was educational but also a mental health day for me! I needed to put things into perspective and now I can see where I am heading. Aunt Barb always has a way to of showing me where I came of from and most importantly, where I am going! I am not sure if she is even aware of it. But I do feel better after spending time with her.

Happy Mother's Day!

Mine's been awesome so far. But then again, I have not gotten off the couch yet! LOL
We have to go spend 4 hours mowing my grandma's yard. All in the name of love, right?!

So to all the Mom's out there....HAPPY MOM'S DAY!! Or Mum's day...which ever you prefer!

I got a hand painted picture of a tree from Will and a handmade MOM magnet with Z pic on it from him. Pics to show up on a layout near you! The best thing is, Zander gave me the SAME picture in 2nd grade! So now I have a somewhat matching pair!! One of our retired school teachers comes to the school and teaches/helps the 2nd graders each year paint this picture. It's so awesome! to follow.

This month is killing me. I've been sooo busy. I can't believe we are a week into it already. WOW! I love the month of May but it's crazy busy this year for me. My Sister's Birthday is coming up, my anniversary, Memorial day, Graduation, Last day of school, Busy busy busy.

I have a BFF having a 50th Bday in June and sooo wanted to fly out and surprise her but it's just not going to happen. I'm so bummed. But on the flip side, my son is going to Washington DC! So all is good. I am hoping she makes it to MICHIGAN this summer. I've got a lot to show her! Or not show her? Which is it?! LOL
