Lazy saturday....

February 28, 2009

...and loving it! We woke up this morning, and waited to hear from my parents if we would be getting on the road to watch Casey's basketball team play in the consolation game at the divisional tournament. Unfortunately, they lost their game this that wasn't the case. We would have loved to be on the road instead today if that meant Casey got to play one more game...but it just didn't happen that way. So, the season is over- and it is time to move on to track! And Casey is going to ROCK at track this year. No surgery impeding him, velocity training, lots of working out....we are SO excited for his track season!

Anyways, not having to travel to Butte means we have gotten to be lazy all day! I have made some cards, we watched a movie called "City of Ember". Quite an interesting movie...we enjoyed it. Once I post this...we are going to get ready and go run some errands that are needed. And then to church tonight. So- at least it won't be a completely lazy day. Hee hee!

So, do you want to see some cards? First up is my card for Laura's sketch #20 at the 2 Sketches 4 U blog. Such a fun sketch this week! Loved it! "Cherished" Card supply list:

I hope that you are having an awesome Saturday! Time for me to go get some not so fun, but needed stuff done. I think we should treat ourselves to lattes since we are going shopping on a crazy weekend day. Just might do that!

Until later,

ETA- I just had to add this because I just took it. I knew this was one of my favorite colors for a reason! :) Let me know what color it says you are if you take the quiz!

you are aquamarine

Your dominant hues are cyan and green. Although you definately strive to be logical you care about people and know there's a time and place for thinking emotionally. Your head rules most things but your heart rules others, and getting them to meet in the middle takes a lot of your energy some days.

Your saturation level is medium - You're not the most decisive go-getter, but you can get a job done when it's required of you. You probably don't think the world can change for you and don't want to spend too much effort trying to force it.

Your outlook on life is very bright. You are sunny and optimistic about life and others find it very encouraging, but remember to tone it down if you sense irritation.
