{ A Busy Signal }

Yup, I feel like that's the signal I am giving out these day's as we have been B.U.S.Y.!
On Monday I sorted/purged through 11 yrs worth of kids clothes and we cleaned the storage shed & worked outside ALL DAY in the heat I'm talking from 9 am to 8 pm.
I have started to work on my Antique Radio cabinets but can't seem to find the time to get paint on them.
And when I feel like I have the time to paint, I am too tired to care. If only I had the energy my children have.

I promise that one of these day's I'll get back to blogging like a good girl but all kidding aside I feel like the regular blog posts won't happen until the kids are back in school. I will be doing cart wheels when that blessed day comes.
And speaking of school I (alone) am taking the kids Back to School shopping this weekend in Tri-Cities.
Yeah I know I'm border line crazy but I'm a mother with coupons and I'm not afraid to use them. :)

{ Pride & Prejudice a.k.a. Lost In Austen }

I found out about this movie from my Sis-in-law Lisa, she loved it and knew I would.
If you're a Pride & Prejudice junkie like me then I'm pretty sure you will love this version as well. For those who haven't watched it here's a brief rundown:

Amanda Price is sick of the modern world. She yearns for the romance and elegance found in the books by her favorite author, Jane Austen. But she's about to get a rude awakening as one fateful evening, she is propelled into the scheming 19th century world of Pride and Prejudice while that book's Elizabeth Bennet is hurled into hers. As the book's familiar plot unfolds, Amanda triggers new romantic twists and turns within the Bennet family circle as she clumsily tries to help the sisters nab husbands and even captivates the tantalizing Mr. Darcy herself. But what about Elizabeth...and what will become of one of the world's greatest love stories?

I so loved how this movie was written. I ♥ the humor they used, the actors were fantastic. I even loved that it was almost 3 hrs long.
I would have to give Lost In Austen a big THUMBS UP!

I had to rent my movie from Netflix as our local Blockbuster had never even heard of it. I feel an Amazon purchase coming on. :)

Now go forth and RENT!

{ Bargain? Why Yes Please! }

Our neighbor's had a yard sale 2 weekends ago and this is what I brought home. I think some spray paint will make these look awesome! I also walked out with LOADS of old rick rack and a BUNCH of craft stuff.

From the same sale I got these 3 antique radio cabinets, I have plans for 2 of them for sure. I paid $20 bucks for EVERYTHING.

Also at a different yard sale (same day) I found a microwave range hood for 20 bucks! I have been looking for one of these for a while and you can't beat that kind of deal. I was prepared to go to Sears and spend a whole lot more than that. I love a good yard sale. ;)

{ Photoshop Rocks }

I took this ''in car'' picture a couple days ago while running errands with the fam. While I loved this shot of Addison because I think the lighting was just plain cool I did not however love the messy little face she was sporting
(ya gotta love snacks in the car)
So I whipped out my CS3 and in about 5 minutes time came up with the following

I am so in love with the shadows and the play of light in this photo. But I have to confess that I still have no idea what I'm doing (well not totally) but it sure is fun playing right? :) I know there is someone out there that can make this photo really scream but for now, my sad little attempt will have to do.

Canon EOS 50D
Shutter Speed 1/125
F stop: f/5.6
ISO 640

Do these terms mean anything to me?

Sigh.... I have so much more to learn.....

PS. Date night with Jentry was so much fun & Harry Potter 6 was pretty darn good, I can't wait for the next 2 movies to come out. Yes #7 is being split into 2 movies. The first half being released in November of 2010 & the second half released in July of 2011.

{ Heaven }

This is where I spent my time over this past weekend. They are in the middle of a major remodel but when it's done it's going to be oh so pretty!
Here is the before

And here are a few of the in between

And guess what the hubby and I decided today? 
We are going to back to this house by the lake TOMORROW!! 
What a better way to spend the holiday's than with your family and friends. I feel kinda weird returning after only coming home from there 4 days ago but I'm sure I'll get over it.
