just this past labor day weekend...

we got back from WA this past monday.
i miss everyone soooo much!
we had a lot of fun!
even it was just from early friday a.m. to early monday a.m.

just wanted to share some photos of this past weekend...


we had some lunch, inspection day of our rental properties...
then a nice jog/walk around rainier vista park with my hubby and selene.
it was such a beautiful, sunny day.
we then had dinner at my parents too.


my hubby & I walked by heritage park and then saw a nice festival going on nearby.
so we took a walk and explored the vendors.
headed over to the farmer's market, then to mercato's for a drink.
mercato's is where we had our civil ceremony reception.
(used the Polandroid app for these pix....so cool!):

it was nice just chillin' there.

then that night we had dinner at my sis's place.


brunch w/ the family at IHOP.

walked around Tumwater Falls.
hung out at the Capitol Mall.
pizza dinner at Inferno's.
then some strawberrry shortcake at my parents'.


headed home.

i miss WA.
i miss my family.

so so random...


it's that time again for a Sassy Lil' Sketches layout reveal...

here's September's sketch:

for my take, i did one of my "so, so random as of...." layouts.
these 2 photos were of me when i was preggo with my daughter, selene.
i have to say...i had that "glow."
i used the cocoa daisy kit "siren's call" for this one.
in addition, i used my nifty circle, starburst, and star punches by martha stewart, ek success and fiskars.
i love those punches.
also used the notebook border punch by ek success.
a few paint splatters and smudges, that too!
and the final touch were some glitter glue dots using stickles.

without further ado...

here's mine:

and for my deetz:


1.  working out HARD to get rid of the baby fats
2.  a SAHM for 1 year and 2 months
3.  my 10 yr old says I'm the most creative person she knows!
