So once again I am apologizing for being MIA - I swear though if it isn't one thing then it is another!!!

First up is the Beloved Keepsakes Boutique. Orders are starting to come in for the Photo Stars so I have been pretty busy with those! Then yesterday I had a little snafu with the behind the scenes part of the store - luckily for me Michelle (my boss at Paperthreads) was able to tell me right off what was wrong and my web guy was able to go in and fix it!! Wheew!!!!

Then - I am starting to try to get organize and ready for my in-laws visit!!! Whoooo hooooo!!! they will be arriving for vacation next Tue... I will probably be hit and miss for the two weeks that they are here..... I can't wait!! We have some fun fun fun stuff planned! It is going to be a blast!!

Then - Hubby got a new set of orders - for those that do not know - the Military runs on a fiscal year of Oct 1st through Sept 30th - so that means every Oct 1st we have to get a new set of orders (since we are "full time National Guard") and that means new ID cards, go resign up for our health care, go resign up for our dental care etc..... HUGE PAIN IN THE BUTT!!!

But lucky lucky me - my hubby took the morning off to run around with me and get that all done! We were even able to make it to JAG to get our power of attorneys and such up dated as well!!! It was a huge blessing that he was able to go with me cause let me tell you - a man in uniform REALLY does help speed things up!!!

And finally - I have joined the living and updated my cell phone! Up until this weekend - my cell phone was looking pretty shabby - hmmm here is a photo to prove it.....

Notice the missing keys? The battery cover was refusing to stay on... yeah it was pretty beat up - but I LOVE this phone... I have had it for a little over four years.......

Well I am very proud to report that I did not get suckered into a "Crackberry" like my hubby and dear friend Chris - but I did get suckered in by the PINK Razor!

So far - well - I don't love this phone like I did my last one... but hey it IS pink! But the crappy part about it is that my old phone was soooo old that they didn't have the software to transfer all my contact over from that phone to the new one - so I am having to enter them one by one myself!!! That is crappy!!!

So that's what going on here...... Hope you are all well!

Until Next Time!

I'm going to keep an eye out and see how this new phone works out for you--I need a new cell phone too and I've been putting it off until I could figure out which one to go with. My dh has a Crackberry now too and after watching what it did to him, I know I don't have TIME for THAT phone in my world! What do they program IN to those things???!!! (ha, ha!)

Thanks for checking out my blog...it's not nearly as fun as yours yet...maybe one day!

Ok Lori, this is getting a bit scary. Not only do we have similar craft rooms with almost matching curtains and added buttons...now we have the same pink razr! I love mine. I hesitated when I bought it, but fell for the pretty pink too. I figured my boys would quit borrowing my phone all the time - but that didn't quite work, they still borrow it often. The pink doesn't bother them at all - should I even admit to that???? Have a wonderful evening!!

Oh my HOLY SMOKES!! How large are those buttons on your old phone. Don't diss my Crackberry. Keeps me quick intouch with you! :-)~ Enjoy! Chris
