Cardalicious~2 on a Monday morning

Good Morning! It's Monday again but I hope you had a great weekend. We had a blast at the pumpkin patch yesterday. We were there for almost 5 hours! Afterwards we headed to a pizza joint with one of those indoor play areas but it was completely packed, so we headed down the street to a place called Outside In Cafe which had play stuff for kids inside as well as healthy food choices. Morgan had cheese trees which was basically a grilled cheese sandwich cut into strips with steamed broccoli. It was a great plan to end our day because the only crying we had from kids was when we had to go home. Believe me, that's refreshing!

I don't have a lot to share with you but I did want to post my card for the second challenge at the href="">Cardalicious blog. The challenge this week was to use at least two tags/journaling spots, etc., and to make a birthday card. This challenge was really easy for me, because I dashed straight to my Studio Calico kit stash and went for my Looking-Glass kit and the Alice add-on.... and that bag-o-tags from Fancy Pants. After that the card came together rather quickly. I hope you will check out the blog and play along!

Steve leaves early Saturday morning for elk camp so it's going to be a busy week soaking him up and preparing for his absense. I have several fun things planned, but there are peeps who read this blog that are part of the fun things planned that are not to be mentioned so I cannot mention the things that might be planned, for fear that they will be read and then known. Got that? lol It's really not that big of a deal but my kids are very excited. I'll share when one of the fun things planned has come to fruition. lol

Have any of you seen "Nights in Rodanthe" with Diane Lane and Richard Gere? Some girlfriends want to go so they made me read the book, but it was my least favorite Nicholas Sparks book... I can see how a movie was made, though, because the book seemed more of an outline and left a lot of room for character development, etc. I'm just wondering if the movie was any good?

Anyway.... have a great Monday!
