Mojo Monday #36


Had a wonderful day today. Tessa graduated from preschool. They were all so stinkin' cute. I now have her on video doing the chicken dance...side splitting action I tell ya. Paper cap and all.

Oh, oh, oh, and yesterday I reaceived my brand new toy from Lesli over at Dragon Fly Time. I was so excited to see the little package on my porch. A new Cuttlebug for moi! Yeah.
I made this card for my mama for her birthdayusing Julee Tillman's Mojo Monday sketch #36. This year it actually falls on Mother's Day. She's kinda unlucky that way I guess (like those who share b-days with Christmas). I'm a good little girl and ALWAYS give her a card and gift for each of the special occasions. We're originally from Illinois and my mom loves cardinals, now I know this Pun Fun bird isn't exactly a cardinal but you get the idea and so will she. I made my own ghost flower out of some packaging and used a red sharpie to add polkadots. I used my sprial punch and tied ribbon around the "tabs" in coordinating colors. The Always Artichoke flower is from the Be Happy set.
Grocery Ramblings...
On a side note I am CRAVING watermelon like ALL the time!!!! No one has it on sale right now and I just went to Smith's and paid almost $7.00 so I could have some sweet, watery, cool goodness back in my life. I don't think I've ever spent that much on a watermelon, now please don't tell me there's nothing to these crazy hormones. I also spent $3.00 on oranges and another $2.50 on apples, I bought a loaf of Nature's Own 100% Wheat Bread $2.50 (only one I've found that doesn't have high fructose corn syrup in it besides the low carb ones), I found a new cereal in the cereal isle that caught my eye and snatched it up it's called Uncle Sam's Toasted Whole Wheat Flakes with Flaxseed (all the bran flake brands have HFCS in them as well but this doesn't and it has 10grams of fiber...watch out world!) and finally I gave into the other craving that Never goes away, the one for chocolate and bought a Symphony bar with Toffee chips. Yummo! Total grocery bill...like $18.00...cravings BEGONE!
Have a great day.

At least you are craving healthy eats- I always crave chocolate and root beer when I am prego. :)

My anniversary is on Mother's day this year. We were married the day before Mother's day 6 years ago. :) So my poor DH has to be extra nice to me that weekend and celebrate twice with me too :).

Cute card!

My dad's birthday is on Dec 25 - poor guy. For as long as I can remember, I've gotten him three gifts. Birthday, Christmas, and Birthmas (usually something small, wrapped 1/2 Christmas wrap, 1/2 birthday wrap) because like you said, it's totally unfair to only have one day to celebrate.

I forgot to say that when I was pregnant with Ian I craved watermelon like crazy and I could eat one all by myself.

Beautiful card! I am sure she will love it. For the people that have Christmas birthdays, they should celebrate half birthdays. It is nice of you to do both for her.
