The Gang

Ok It's a bad picture of me but here we are on a giant dune in Corolla or possibly Corova, NC on the Outer Banks. I am not sure how far north we were once we started driving up Route 12 on the beach, yes route 12 is on the beach. No pavement! We took a tour to see the wild horses and you have to use a 4WD vehicle so they took us out in a nice Air Conditioned Suburban. It was so wild out there with all the beach houses on these sand dunes and the horses just wandering around them.

I am on vacation at the Outer Banks and decided to upload my pictures on my laptop. I have local wifi so I thought I would surprise everyone with the first three lighthouses we have visited! The first one is Currituck Lighthouse, the second is Bodie Island lighthouse and the third is our most famous - Hatteras lighthouse. It was closed today to climb due to heat, it was over 100 degrees inside the lighthouse and with heat index that brings it to 110 so we are going back at 9am to climb it. I will tell more of the trip later!

No, sorry not the TV show :) our new house. I have a request to post some pictures since it has been painted, even though I am waiting for rugs, furniture and pictures to be put up. It is a work in progress :)

I am not going to be posting for a little over a week, I am going on a trip to the Outer Banks! My best friend I grew up in California with (and her daughter!) are flying to meet me and the boys and we are driving there and spending a week seeing the sites. I can't wait! We have been planning this trip for a year now, we are going to go to see all the fun things. No hubby's to rush us along either LOL! I am looking forward to seeing the beach, feeling the sand in my toes and breathing the salty/fresh air! I so miss living near the ocean. Anyway I will post when I get back. TTFN!

Wow, long time

Wow, Long time since I posted! I didn't realize it has been so long. It's a busy Summer and I haven't been spending time making cards or getting on the internet. I am sure when the Summer winds down I will be back in full force :) For now I will post when I have something.

This is the July House Mouse Stamp of the Month. I am noticing when you don't make cards every day like I was you get rusty! I couldn't come up with anything spectacular for this card. I did pull out the Cuttlebug because I am able to get to it now! The scrap/stamp area is organized so I know where most things are.

As far as the house goes, the painting is done. We ended up having every room painted. Hubby said just get it done and we won't have to think about it again for a while. Not a small or cheap task! I ended up with 8 different shades of green, 3 shades of brown and one yellow. I did use the same color in a few rooms but most are different. I am waiting for three area rugs to come in, all ordered a few weeks ago. Also waiting for the end tables for my family room and a few odds and ends. Once we get all the pictures up where we want we will be pretty much done for now. Whew! It's been a whirlwind!
