project life :: week 10

playing more catch up.

this was a really busy week as we had a TON of appts. james had his 3 year well check. were they found a heart murmur. this only scares me given the history of the loss of our first son to HLHS, d having a hole in his heart. i am hoping its innocent and we are in the clear with james but we will find out on wednesday this week. the card with his wellness stats also in the march kit from studio calico. 

since d and i both had dentist appts this week, it only seemed fitting to use the small card from the studio calico march kit. he did great at the dentist and has 4 teeth lose. i used thickers for the week ten card. and both boys got special one or one donut date time. i got a special treat, one of my most favorite things. a shamrock shake from somewhere i almost never go McD's. the "heart" happiness is was so from a card in the kit that i cut down to just the banner. 

d's basketball pictures came in this week. i can't believe how big he is. looks so grown up. the top picture in the newspaper clip is my friends and me at the disney marathon weekend. our little town paper wrote the article and it was about local runners. super fun. so those were in a 5 x 7 plastic page protector from becky higgins and a 8 x 10 size.

i started out running the columbia marathon this weekend. d and his class ran it a mile at a time and finished their last mile with their teacher as she finished her marathon. really cool event. i however, did not finish the marathon. the course was crazy hard, i had a back stomach virus that threw me for a loop for a good 2 days. i was worried about my hydration all week, so in the tenth mile i knew i would make myself sick by finishing the whole race so i humbly bailed out at the half. i used a cathy zielske tiny template from designer digitals for the collage picture of d's race. the picture of my husband is actually printed as a t-shirt transfer, i wore that for every race i ran since he left, that's 19 races! journaling cards are from the seafoam project life kit. and the last decorative card is also from seafoam kit with embellishment hearts from studio calico. lastly, the "being together" die cut is from ali edwards 4 x 6 family sentiment collection on designer digital. which i cut on my new SILHOUETTE, another new love of mine. 

so now we are all caught up. this week's most exciting news is my husband is HOME! safe and sound from a 15 month deployment in afghanistan. in that time i managed to keep myself and the kids alive. i feel very blessed.

have a good week!
