Impetuous: im-pet-u-ous - of, pertaining to, or characterized by sudden or rash action, emotion, etc.; impulsive: an impetuous decision; an impetuous person. (see also Amy O'Neil)
Yep, thats me. I don't even try to deny it anymore. So, for MONTHS now I've been watching every penny spent. Trying to be thrifty and frugal (2 words that most certainly DON'T describe me!) I even convinced Caitlin to wear one of Em's old costumes for Halloween this year. But, saw these at the mall yesterday and caved. Emilee and Caitlin are now the proud owners of matching Mark Ecko Red sneakers! OY! They are so stinkin' cute! They had them in Liv's size too, but decided she should actually be walking first!
Are they practical? Hell no! But I'm OK wearing my Old Navy flip flops and Target T-shirts if it means my girls can be seen sporting these kicks!
And last, but not least... My friend Cristal's poor little guy is in the hospital for a few days. They're pretty sure he has the nasty rotavirus and needs to stay until it clears up so he doesn't become too dehydrated. Say a little praver for our sweet little Ryan!

1. As a comment on this post, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you know me a little or a lot, anything you remember!
2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you.
One L already posted a memory... here it is
"Since you shared a memory on my blog I will do the same for you...one of the many that stand out is when I first saw you whip up a page and I thought what is this incredibly talented woman doing in this little crappy (scrapper's garden) scrap book store when she could obviously work anywhere." (man, I had her fooled, huh?)
OH, and keep it G-rated, this is a family show! Not that anyone has any stories about me that aren't purely innocent. ;-)
OK, I finally caved. I'm usually reluctant to jump on any bandwagon.... I like to pretend I'm too original for that. But, after hearing endless chatter about this series, I decided to give it a try. Darren loaned me her copy, she's on like the 3rd or 4th book (how many are there anyway?) I'm hooked. I'm about half way through it and this is one of those novels that make you want to lock yourself in your bedroom and neglect your children for the afternoon!
Next week is the Autism Awareness Fundraiser at Devine Memories. We have lots of fun classes and activities planned... all of which benefit autism research through autismspeaks.org.

Starting in September, I will be a BagDADDY sales rep! These things are so cool! They are custom handbags that you design and personalize at home shows. You pick the style, you pick the fabric, you pick the design, you pick the handles.... you get the idea! I knew I could never be a sales rep for a product I didn't love myself, and this product just blew me away. These are gorgeous and original bags! And I promise, as much as I love to throw a party, my home shows will be a ton of fun! Drop me a line if you want to schedule one!

They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you.
And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts.
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
Which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you,
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite,
and He bends you with His might that His arrows might go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer's hand be for gladness;
For even as He loves the arrow that flies,
so He loves also the bow that is stable.

First, a shameless plug for my upcoming class at Devine Memories."I don't know about you, but it seems that everyone I know is pregnant! Something in the water maybe???? If you know of a new mom-to-be or a mom that wants to get caught up on baby's first year, "Oh Baby" is the perfect class. Amy will walk you through creating an entire calendar based album to keep track of all those milestones of baby's first year.
Saturday, June 28th, 10am-1pm, class fee $30"
Not much else is going on right now... girls are doing well, its getting HOT outside, and I'm happier than I've been in a LONG time.

Michelle's oldest son made this cool little stop motion video with her digital camera! How fun is that?
And this new blog I stumbled on yesterday, aptly named Apronista, is just the most fun thing ever! I love the "life, love, and the pursuit of ric-rac" line! I can't sew to save my life, but this makes me want to learn!
Had a garage sale today and unloaded a bunch of "junk." Now maybe I can fit my van in the garage!

I was doing the match.com thing. Lets just say I'd recommend it! ; )
