Friday Favs!! (LONG winded post warning!)

Happy FRIDAY!!!! :) Hope you had a GREAT week!! I tell ya our weather has been CRAZY.. last week in the 100's... we broke records.. it hit 103 I believe.. in fact las thur. was 101.. this thur was 61.. 40 degree LESS.. isnt that CRAZY! LOL!! but it has given me lots of time to CREATE! .. I mean CLEAN! ;)

ANYWAY... I did some prep work on creative goodies.. never done that before.. but I cut some new nestabilities...and circles.. so NOW the goal will be to get all the stamping/embellies done RIGHT within 2 tries! HA HA!! Hoping to PLAY tonite!!

Ok on with the friday favs..

#1- Us Time!!! (aka DATE NIGHT!!) Love that.. dont get them very often but enjoy the ones we do! (THANKS MOM/TUTU for watching the kiddos for us!) Last weekend was the Kenny Chesney concert.. so #1 here has LOTS of photos.. I put them in slide show.. just a few of the OVER 100 I took! :) THANKS for peeking at them! Looky the mohawk guy... GRRRR came in and ruined my view! BUT I did survive.. luckily Kenny moves alot so I was able to see and get photos! :)

#2-Cousin Time!!! Last friday we went to the fair where I grew up and the kiddos got to enjoy it with Buggy!! LOVE when they get to have some FUN time together!

#3- Jam Time!!! :) The kiddos and I made blackberry jam this week! YUMMY!!! On a side note.. I gotta find MORE of these cute jars.. I only bought one set last year.. WHY! Now I want more and cant find them! the search is on! :)

#4- Cookie Time!!! Oh I tried THIS recipe that Lauren Meader shared on her blog!
WARNING... dont make them unless you REALLY want to eat them all.. they are FABULOUS!!! I did add pecans! YUM!

#5- Stamp Time!!! I got to play a bit this week.. with the cooler weather! and you know I had to use my BG and PTI stamps.. and BUTTONS! of course! OH my .. I gotta hide these things from myself! LOL!!

That is my favs for the week!!! I have a little something to share that my creative girl made.. BUT I want that to be in another post.. so she can have her own again! :) They are sooo CUTE.. that is all I am gonna say! ;)
