do you have a lovely fall where you are?  i wish we did!  it's so warm here.  when i was out running errands with my kids earlier, the temp reading in my car was 92!  yuck!  when i was assigned the "fall" theme over at pebbles, it made me laugh because we get so little of it here!
here is my layout.  be sure to pop on over to pebbles to check out kim kesti's layout as well!

going MIA for a bit & a layout...

i am going mia this week & next.  my husband pinned on major last week (WOOOOOO!  finally!  19 months from time of selection to pinning on.  not that anyone was counting or anything...) his party is THIS weekend.  combine that with minimum days at school + his long work hours + dental appointment + kids' evening activities = an INSANE week for me!  lol.  and - next weekend, i am running the Nike Women's Half Marathon.  (or... more likely hobbling through it because training time has been nonexistent & i am determined to get that tiffany necklace anyway.  ha!)  so... i'll see ya in a couple of weeks.  and because i can't post without a photo... a layout i made last week.  :)
