graduation announcements and fluff

Tonight I finished Sandy's graduation announcements. I took Kyle's pictures and started on his. It feels good to get some stuff done. They are the same, because they go to the same school and I told her to invite her friends and family to the party the next night. I HAVE to get Kyle's done tomorrow so they can get in the mail this weekend since graduation is 2 weeks away. I did 24 for her and I'm doing 45 for Kyle.
I went to a new nail salon here in Maricopa today. I had them take off my old nails and put on a new full set. Holy heck do my fingers hurt! They are so tender from ripping them off and sanding down my nail bed. It's painful to type so this will not be a long post. :o)
Cole asked me for help with his math homework tonight. I had NO IDEA how to do it! Seriously! So to answer the question of "Are you smarter than a 5th grader?" The answer would be NO! heck...apparently I'm not even smarter that a 4th grader. So embarrassing!

I also made my fluffy girl chart. I left the month off and the dates so I could print the same sheet each month and hand write in that info. I plan to color it to cute it up a bit. I don't know how to do downloads like Amy. So you can make up a chart that works for you or you can see if you can click on this picture to save and print. I don't know if that will work, but it's worth a try if you want to use it. Anyone is free to jump in at any time with our fluffy girls club.

Today I've drank 4- 8oz. glasses of water...which is not where I need to be, but far better than my normal 0-1 glass of water. I am terrible at drinking water! I almost didn't exercise but I decided that I couldn't blog until I did, so I did exercise tonight for 35 minutes while watching CSI. I'm still feeling the burn. Yay me! Okay did you do today?

Briana said...

Great job on the graduation invitations! Love them!

Jen said...

announcements look great Jolene.

You know I'm more than fluffy and I drink bottles and bottles of water daily! Water is important but it sure isnt' my solution :(

Pam said...

Awesome Announcements! Love that paisley!

Yeah you on the water! All I ever drink is water all day long. One cup of coffe in the am, water all day and one milk at dinner. Boring I know. And way cool that you exercised too! Good for you!

The announcements came out really cute! I love that paisley paper.... yum!

Good luck on your drinking. I have an easier time when my habit slides if I add lemon. You might try that. :)

Jacquie said...

Your announcments look great!

I love are you smarter than a 5th grader, most days I'm not LOL.

I too love my water with lemom, the colder the better. I read once that with the lemon it helps you flush out more water especially if you retain alot.

No water and No exercise today! I'm not doing so good, huh? Love that chart though! Maybe it will motivate me more. :)

Hi Jolene!
I'm just catching up from a couple of days ago... what wonderful news of Chad coming home for a visit!! I can't wait until you can 'see yourboy' and give him a huge hug! That's really so wonderful...indeed! The pictures and announcments are just nicely done, Jolene. I hope today has brought you better events ... here's a hug... xx ok...two

Right click, copy image, open a page in microsoft works, control V (short cut for pasting) and voilah! I just printed mine up!
Thanks for creating a chart for us all!
I worked ALL DAY LONG pulling out old carpet and putting in new. So ... not really aerobic exercise, but definitely burning calories. three 8 oz glasses of water today, but the day isn't over yet!
Can I copy your graduation announcements? I haven't ordered them yet, but I like yours better than what's in the catalog!
Keep on chugging.

love the announcements - where were you when i was graduating?

Love them!!
Count me in on the fluffy girls club!! Does chasing a 21 month old count as exercise!! hahaha!
Jolene.. counting the days till Chad comes home safe! I am so happy for you but dread the going back!

Take care

Mindy said...

Ha! I actually remembered to take a water bottle to work today AND I actually drank it! (AND I remembered to feed the bunny too!)

Does planting flowers count as exercise? NO? How about looking out the window, seeing your dog throwing six packs of flowers across the yard, and running out of the door and chasing him down like an insane person? Does anger burn calories???? The 13 year old responsible for leaving the dog out unattended gets to go to the garden shop with me tomorrow and HE'S paying! Double punishment!

I haven't ever commented on your blog before, have just been a lurker, but I have downloaded the chart and I am a Fluffy Girl. I am going to try to exercise and drink more water and eat less junk food!! I love your scrapbooking! The annoucements are really great! Chad has been in my thoughts. I have a cousin on his way to Iraq this week.

I hope you are having a GREAT WEEKEND

And your boys have good taste, because they had a great mama.
