Leaving on a jet plane....

....with two kids....alone....please pray for me!  We're heading out to visit my family this week.  We'll be gone until mid-March, so I won't be blogging much.  I'm taking some PL planning sheets with me so I won't get behind or lose ideas.  When I get back it will be a mad PL marathon!  I hope everyone enjoys the rest of February and into March.  I'll be relaxing and watching my girls enjoy their grandparents!

P.S.  Currently obsessed with this song:

Project Life 2012 - Week 6

Wow- week 6 already?  Where did these weeks go???  Here's what our week looked like:
I had one insert this week, which is the envelope from the card that my husband sent me.  *I put a little  card over our home address there.

This week, my older daughter went bowling for the first time - and won!  

I really wanted to include a funny Caylan quote about her dad.  Where does she come up with this stuff?

I included a copy of a letter from Josh's squadron approving me to be a Key Spouse and also included some journaling about it.  *Another card used to cover our home address.

Josh sent me some pictures from overseas and I'm SO happy he did!  I love being able to include him even if he's not here.

Josh sent us some Valentine's presents - a bracelet for Caylan and an iPod shuffle for me.  I also included a note from Josh's dad that came with some books they sent for the girls.  And, included that Adele swept the Grammy's this year - Love her!
This was a good week and I had to pair down what to include.  I cut some of  the smaller stuff that can be included at a later time.  This week came together quickly because a lot of it was already done for me!  I'll post week 7 on Monday, then I'll be traveling to visit family for three weeks....aka not scrapbooking.  BUT I'm taking my Project Life planning sheets and collecting memorabilia and making notes for what to include when we get home.  Hope everyone has a great rest of the week and weekend!

P.S.  SO excited that this started back up - but hubby won't let me watch until he gets

Project Life 2012 - Weeks 4-5

I spent this weekend catching up!  Most of it was done on Saturday night.  I flipped on SNL (hello, Channing Tatum) and got to work.  Here are weeks 4 and 5:

Week 4
Lots of journaling this week.
Loved including a text message between a friend and I about going out for dinner (her husband is deployed with mine).

Lost focus on my weight loss efforts and wanted to document it.

Found some Apple stickers that we got with a purchase a long time ago.  I'm glad I hung on to them!
Week 5
As I created this layout, I realized it was a week of birthdays!  We celebrated 4 birthdays this week!

I took a picture of my planner for this week because it was INCREDIBLY busy.

Stole Amy Tan's idea for documenting my dog's birthday.

The "Great Gift" journal spot is from Smash.

Downloaded the Superbowl image online.
So that's weeks 4 and 5.  I'm so loving this project.  The only thing I'm struggling with right now is working on my full layouts...they're being neglected.  I really want to carve out some time this week to do some full layouts, especially on Layla's first year album.  That will be a focus this week.

My husband... amazing!  I told him what was wrong with the computer and he did research and figured out how to fix it.  Then, spent two hours on the phone with me walking me through the steps.  And now it's all fixed and we didn't lose anything!  Yay!  That being said, I'm working on my Project Life and I'll post the next two weeks in one post Monday or Tuesday of next week.  Gotta play a little catch up.  Thanks for being patient and have an amazing weekend!

*We're still going to replace it with a Mac sometime this year, just waiting until we don't have to refinance our house to buy it.  :)
