Yes I am BACK! LOL

Okay first things first .... Laurie be sure to take deep breaths cuz if you hyperventilate cuz I actually blogged, I'd feel really bad! HEEHEE!

So ... how are ya all? LOL It's been a busy time in the Tops house .. and I am certainly not gonna blog all about it in one sitting .. so I will pick an event, and add a LO .. and then hopefully that'll keep my blog mojo rolling!

So let's see ... hhhmmm OH YA APPLE PICKING!

So a few weeks ago, when it was much much warmer, we went to the orchard in Orleans and indulged in what I thought would of been a full afternoon of fun. Well the full planned afternoon actually took 20 minutes ... BAHAHAHA! But it was a fun filled 20 minutes!

So my girls go rip roaring down the hill trying to find the perfect tree with some luscious mac apples... well we had to go quite a ways down as all the apples in the trees near the entrance had been raped and pillaged, and looked like they had seen a better day or two .. but the trek down the hill was so worth it!

Here are many shots of our fun filled 20 minutes! LOL

So there it is .. 31 pounds and 23 bucks later! LOL I have since made 8 pies, but I have to make apple sauce yet, and apple muffins for the freezer! Oh and I can't forget candy apples! LOL

On the scrapping front ... I have made a few pages that I need to upload! But today I embark on a new adventure with my fellow scrappers, Barb, Nat, Dorrie, Katie and Sonya! I am participating in LOAD (Layout A Day) for the month of October. That means 31 LO's in 31 days ... it's crazy to think that I will even come close, but this SAHM stuff leaves me with 3 whole hours of afternoon time to myself every weekday ... so I think I just may have a chance .. truth be told .. if I fall off the wagon who gives a shit cuz it'll be far more scrapping than I would likely have gotten done! LOL Katie and I also have this strange competition thing between us .. so GIRL IT IS SO ON! LMAO

Anyways here is my 01 Oct entry! This was a pic taken of me on my honeymoon as were leaving Punta Cana in 2001! I got to use some of the Bo Bunny I had in my stash and some of the new Prima flowers and stud centers.


I also wanted to give a shout out to my girls DORRIE and KATIE! They just found out that they have made The Paper Passion DT team. These girls are super talented and I know they are gonna add some spice to their projects and inspire a whole wack of scrappers ... INCLUDING ME! WTG Ladies ... kick some arse, I'll be over there soon to lend my support and take your challenges! MMMMMMMMMMWWWWWAAAAAA!

This weekend I am heading to my mom and dad's! Mom and I are are signed up for a two day crop over at the Scrapbox .. I am looking forward to spending some scrappy time with her .. it's been a while since we have been creative together! Then on Saturday my hunky hubby is bringing our girls there and Sunday we celebrate my dad's (AKA PAPA) 60th Birthday! I see football and chili and lots of fun with my brother and his family too! All around it's gonna be a blast!

So good to be back .. wish me luck on my adventures ...! WINK!
