Cook was sizzling....

I have been watching American Idol since the beginning of the season and have been rooting for David Cook the whole way through. So glad he won, was so worried that all the tiny 13 yo screaming girls would take over the phone lines and help Archuletta win.

OH and then on a sidenote-- A very sad and upsetting one. I was downloading a costco photo program to my computer last night and some how ALL, yes I mean ALL 3+ yrs worth of photos disappeared off my computer. That is thousands of pics gone. I have someone looking at my computer tomorrow, please say a prayer that he can find them.

Menu Plan Monday

My MIL and her husband are coming down on Thursday so I will only be doing meals until then just because I am not sure what they will want to do for dinners.

Stew Stuff (ww) w/ salad

Tacos (from ground turkey)

Sandwiches/ Leftovers (lots of leftovers from the party)

Bubble up enchiladas

Also I am looking for some really good WW meals or just real healthy ones, please send links if you have any. If you are new to the site my DH is working out and getting this family to eat healthier, he has lots 20 lbs so far. But it can sometimes be hard to find good healthy meals so please share any you have. thanks

New layout

Here is a layout i did of my niece. Loved this new Making Memories noteworthy line. I got the idea for the layout by doing one of two peas in a bucket's NSD free classes tutorials learning how to do the folded paper around the edge, very cool idea. And I love how the flowers turned out that I made using the noteworthy line ribbon.
Just love how this layout turned out.

Party Planning

-OH Wyatt will so love this bike for his birthday. I can't wait to see the look on his face when we bring it out to him.

-Then lots and lots of balloons(got the idea from her blog). Wyatt loves them, when attached to a string he calls them kites. So I am filling the community center where the party is being held full of them. Can't wait to see him ride his new bike through them all.

-Then the goodie bags will be filled with Wyatt's favorite things, bubbles, play doh, and stickers.

If you have any other idea or suggestions please feel free to share int he comments. I just love planning parties.
