Birthday Card: Brick Wall

Well I was inspired by my upline in Canada to make this birthday card for my husband. Just the other day she posted about the Brick Wall technique and so I decided that I had to use that technique for the next card I made. Of course I used a completely different stamp set and colors than she did so it looks way different. Anyway, here it is:

Also finally once more, happy birthday to my hubby! I love you and hope you have a great one :)

Spring colds..

.. are not a whole lot of fun! I'm definitely finding out about that right now! Wednesday I had a tickle in my throat so I started taking "stuff" aka vit. C, Echinecea etc right way. Turns out apparently that didn't to me a whole lot of good because Thursday morning I woke up and debated about going to work or staying at home. In the end  I decided to go to work because after all sitting at home isn't going to make me feel any better, turns out I should have stayed at home because I was dragging myself around for everything. Finally at 2:00 I decided that enough was enough, I'd had it so I went home!

After sitting around for a little bit I decided that maybe I should go to bed for a while and see if that would help my headache. That was at about 4:00, I knew I was tired but not super tired... turns out I must have been so out of it I didn't even hear the garage open when John got home! You know you aren't feeling well at all when... that happens lol :)

Today I could have gone to work but decided that since it was Friday and all, and I'm still not feeling that great I was going to stay home and hopefully feel much better by the end of the day, seeing that it is John's birthday after all!

This morning when John got up I said Happy Birthday to him and then told him where he could find his present since I wasn't feeling up to getting out of bed to get it for him. I got him a GPS/Navigation System since I had no clue what else to get him and we will be spending some time on the road this summer! Hopefully it turns out to be something he likes/enjoys having! :) I don't know what it is with men but they are so hard to get gifts for! At least that is what I find... If you don't think so feel free to share some ideas for gifts, you never know when they might come in handy!

Now for the card, as of this moment it still hasn't been made, because that means I need to get motivated to get off of the couch and to do so. I was totally planning to have it made yesterday and put a hint in the card for him, telling him that if he wanted his present he should navigate his way downstairs. Hmm not so much when I wasn't feeling good though :( I'm kinda sad that I didn't get to do that because it would have been fun, but what can I say sometimes you are just to sick to even want to do fun things!

So now instead of procastinating I'm going to head off to make a card for him before he gets home this afternoon which is in about another hour, so I really need to scramble! I'll post pictures later!

Beetle Bailey - Comic

Well here is a comic that I got a real kick out of today! Normally I don't read the comics but I happened to be bored while I was waiting for my husband at his parents' so I started reading the comics for lack of something better to do and came across this one! Now I'm sure all us ladies will agree that men have nothing to complain about ;)

Amazing piece of Music - Organ

Well I don't remember how many years ago that I heard Andre Knevel play this piece for the first time in a concert, but I do remember loving it! Just wanted to share the link for all you organ and music lovers! :)

What have I been learning?

Well the latest "subject" for me is Spanish! I know I sound like I'm in highschool again. For that matter I'm having so much fun with it. Words that I learned in HS are totally coming back, and one of the ladies I work with is amazing! Without me asking she says things to me in Spanish and I generally figure out what she means. I've actually added several new words to my spanish vocab, and hopefully I can remember then lol :) She told me that I can call her or go hang out with her whenever I need to pratice my spanish during the months that there isn't anything in the greenhouse. So that is pretty fun!

Anyway since I've spent some time posting today I'm going to leave it at this!


Here are the pictures I promised!

Well finally :) Between work and everything I've had very little extra time or energy for blogging if you haven't been able to figure that out yet!

So I'm starting with our bedroom since now the curtains are hung and the pictures etc.

 Then the main bathroom upstairs
The kitchen

and somehow the bedroom pictures which are supposed to be above, lately blogger has frusturated me with the way posting pictures works. Or maybe it is just me..

The living room, pssst if you haven't started to notice I've been good about putting my Decor Elements on my walls in this place lol :)

The dining room

And once again things aren't where they were supposed to go, these are my kitchen drawer handles and knobs, which we put on the cupboards.

Looking from the living room toward the stairs, nothing exciting there yet but I'm looking for a coat rack that I like.

The extra bedroom, super exciting :P haha

So that is all for upstairs! Now the downstairs pictures.

So first of all the bathroom, I'm going to sew something super cute for my shower curtain and can't wait to share it once I get it sewn.. but that isn't till I'm done in the greenhouse :(

Laundry Room

Storage closet

And the main area

That's all for now :)
