That's what it's been around here lately. C.R.A.Z.Y. I feel like a chicken running around with my head cut off. Bryan should be home on Sunday at 2:30 in the morning. Lovely. Could the army pick a more awful time? Let me tell you how excited I am about having to drag my kids down to post in the middle of the night. Don't get me wrong...I'm thrilled beyond words that my hubs will finally be home. But, seriously...2:30 am? Ugh.

I've been bustin' my a** with house cleaning, and kit magic. I've been deep-cleaning one room a day for the last week, and I'm almost done. Now, if I can just keep it that way until Sunday. In between all of that, chasing two kids around, and house-breaking a dog, I have found time to work with my Label Tulip kit. This month is AMAZING. I mean...WOW! I had to have all of the add-ons, myself. I think this is my fave kit of all-time...ever...from any kit company. I have never made so much from one kit, and I still have stuff left to work with. My mojo is just loving all the goodies from this one! And, I should have some sneaks to share Saturday or Sunday.

So, yesterday was my anniversary. Rather than sitting at home, moping, I went out to The Olive Garden with my friend, Heidi. Yum. I hadn't had Olive Garden in forever. I love their salad and breadsticks. I could make a meal out of that alone. But, the Chicken Parmigiana was wonderful too. All in all...not a bad anniversary, considering that my husband was nowhere to be seen.

I am so behind on everything blog, RAK and internet related. I promise to be catching up soon. I owe e-mails, RAK's, and blog readings to A LOT of you. I promise to be catching up in the next couple of weeks. I haven't forgotten any of you. mean it when I say things have been nuts lately.

So, peeks this weekend. Be here or be, well, not here. But, there will be some eye candy for you when you return. In the meantime, I'll leave you with a recent picture of Sake. She has proven to be the BEST addition to this family. Love her to bits!
