Mount Shasta Camping

Since I am not in the mood to try and figure out how to upload photos to our mac, I have decided to use some photos that are already on it and post something to my blog.  hahaha  My husband and I went camping a few weeks ago in Mount Shasta and had the BEST time!  We were there for 5 nights and enjoyed each and every moment!  We have some friends and family in the area and were able to see them as well as get some nice hikes and swimming in.  The photos are of us on the top of Black Butte with Mt. Shasta in the background.  There was a large forest fire nearby, but depending on which way the wind blew, we could sometimes see Mt. Shasta and sometimes not.  It was pretty crazy!  And of course, we had to take a photo of Chili swimming in a lake (not Lake Shasta), boy does he have a GREAT time in the water.  If I'm not throwing a stick for him, he just swims in circles checking things out. It's pretty funny to watch.

Wedding Gift

My husband performed the ceremony last weekend for a friend's wedding. This is his 4th one and probably not his last. Normally he puts the ceremony in a photo album and gives it to the couple for a keepsake. Now that I am stampin' he asked me to make a nice album for the ceremony that we could give them. The bride LOVES the nickname her new hubby has, so I had to use that on the cover. I used silver rings to bind it and then made little tabs on each of the pages so it would be easier to turn the pages. I also made them some matching notecards as a gift. The wedding was beautiful! Greg did a fabulous job and everything turned out perfectly. :) Congratulations Lippys. :)

So, it's a bit after 1 pm on Wednesday afternoon and I am just hoping that UPS guy comes today. I had a bit of a teaser yesterday when he came with 3 Stampin' Up! boxes, the same number of cases of catalogs I ordered, but I was so bummed when they were an order I placed. But also with that delivery were some roses my sweet friend sent me from Red Envelope, so that put a huge smile on my face! Now, I just sit and wait for UPS, please come soon.....:)

I'm lucky enough to be working from home this afternoon, so I'll be here in hopes of my delivery. So, wish me luck and send me your happy thoughts, better yet, send the UPS guy over with my catalogs!!! hahahaha
