Whoa there, Blogger...

I apologize for my PL posts getting all mixed up.  I added tags and for some reason Blogger decided to be awesome and switch the post's order.  Anyway, they're all there for you. 

My mother-in-law is flying in tonight and we're gearing up for a week and a half of pure bliss!  Be back soon!

Project Life: Week 11-14

Welcome to Weeks 11 through 14.  Here we go:

Week 11
This week we headed home (with lots of travel drama).

My sorority sister got married in Scottsdale this weekend.  I got to go and meet up with some great friends.  It was a wonderful reunion!

Week 12
This week consisted of lots of getting back on schedule and getting back to normal.

And Layla started crawling.  YIKES!

Week 13
Got caught up on some project this week.

     Had some Easter fun and went to see The Hunger Games.

Week 14

I'll be back tomorrow with weeks 15 through 18!

Project Life: Weeks 15-18

Welcome to weeks 15 through 18!

Week 15
This was a hard week.  My grandmother passed away.  I included an insert of her obituary.

The second spread is dedicated to her through the years.

Week 16
Spent a lot of time at home this week.

Week 17
Very good week - went to the fair and JOSH CAME HOME!

So happy Josh came home!  And can we talk about the Banana Pudding Shake at Chick-Fil-A?  Seriously.

Week 18
Gym time together, dog sitting, signing up for Vacation Bible School...

Even got to sneak out on a date to see The Avengers!

Thanks for sticking with me.  One more catch-up tomorrow!!!

Project Life: Weeks 19-21

Thanks for sticking with me so far.  Here's the last of my AH! I GOTTA CATCH UP blog posts.  Here's weeks 19 through 21:

Week 19
We did some fun shopping to get ready for our anniversary trip!

For Mother's Day, Josh and Caylan got me a pearl necklace.  They were able to choose the oysters, watch the pearls come out, choose a setting and they made the necklace right there.  Josh took pictures of the whole thing and included them in my card (sized for my album - seriously, how awesome is he?).  It was the best present EVER!

Week 20

Friends of our got married this week - one year out from their big wedding - they just decided to make it official at the courthouse.  The big wedding will be next year in Texas.  They asked us to be there and it was such an honor.

We went to a birthday party - the blank spot on the bottom will hold a good picture of Caylan with her friend Rhyleigh when a get a copy from the party.

Week 21

Book club, gymnastics, lunch with a friend and triple digit weather.

A BBQ, signing up for pre-school, good beer and an impromptu dance party.

And now, I'm officially all caught up!  Tonight, my mother-in-law flies in.  The rest of this week will consist of family time, Caylan's first dance recital....and then we leave on Sunday for our vacation!  I'll be back after that with more Project Life and a list of goals to focus on.  I'll be making that list in the Bahamas when my mind is clear and I can reflect and focus on what I want and what's important.  Everyone have a wonderful week and I'll be back soon!

Project Life: Weeks 7-10

The first in my AH! I GOTTA CATCH UP blog posts.  Welcome.  I'm taking the next four days to completely catch up on my Project Life posts.  The album is caught up, just not my sharing.  Here are weeks 7 through 10:

Week 7

This was Valentine's Week.  My Valentine was away, but we still enjoyed it - aka Starbucks and Thin Mints helped comfort me.

I helped throw a surprise baby shower for my good friend Kristi.  Loved the peacock theme!  And hello - snow in both Afghanistan AND Tucson this week.  Crazy!

I'm getting a slight addiction to doilies.  Been using them a lot lately.  I cut this heart-shaped one into three pieces and sprayed it with mist to color it.  Love the way it turned out!

Week 8
This week starts our time in Florida.  There is an insert of a program from Spam-A-Lot I went to see with my mom and sister (best.ever.).  Please excuse my toes, PhotoShop hated me while editing pictures....

The I Love You was written by my niece and she gave it to me.  Love!  This was also the week that riots started over at the base where Josh was at the time.  Super scary.

Lots went on this week, including Caylan's first trip to the ER.  Broke my heart.

Week 9 
Lots of fun hanging out with our family this week.

We had a joint birthday party for Caylan (4) and her cousin Jimmy (5).  I love the picture of them hugging in the shopping cart....LOVE!

I added two inserts this week of where and what we ate while in Florida.  I always have to hit my favorite spots and added a couple new ones this time!  I used a We R Memory Keepers 4x6 slotted spread.

For the second insert, I snagged a menu from my new favorite place - Tucker Duke's Lunchbox.  I'm friends with the owner and I'm not kidding you - THE BEST BURGERS I'VE EVER HAD!  And I'm a burger girl, so that means a lot.

Week 10
More family fun in Florida.

I'll be back tomorrow with weeks 11 through 14.

I hope everyone has a safe and relaxing Memorial Day and please remember what it's all about: honoring the men and women who have, do and will continue to fight for us to keep us safe and protected.  Being a military wife, I understand the hardships that come with this career field and I'm honored to be a part of it, and so proud of my husband, who sacrifices his conveniences and comforts to help protect others.

Hello!  Holy 3 Months Later, Batman!  Sorry I've been so MIA lately.  After our trip home to Florida, it was a whirlwind of getting back on schedule, my husband returning from his deployment, lots of family time, etc, etc, etc.....

We are currently planning ANOTHER trip - my husband and I are heading here:
Oh yes, that's right!  We're taking our second honeymoon/10 years of marriage celebration trip to the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas (thank you awesome tax return)!  My wonderful mother-in-law is coming in this week to stay at our house with our girls and dogs and I couldn't be any more grateful.  How do you repay someone for something like that?  We are looking forward to 8 days alone, relaxing, and enjoying each other.  We really need to get away, refocus and come back refreshed so we can enjoy our family that much more.

In the meantime, I AM caught up on Project Life and I have the pictures taken.  I will take this week to post a couple of weeks at a time so that you don't have to spend an entire morning if you want to catch up on it.  ;)

I have some goals lined up to focus on when we get back from our vacation and blogging more often is on the top of that list.  So stay tuned - I'm back!
