i AM alive. promise.

04 October 2008

no i did NOT fall off of the face of the planet.
i've been in ireland.

i kid i kid.
if i was indeed in ireland...i would NOT have put a pic of MY house up there.
it would, without a doubt, be a breath taking photo of the emerald isle. promise.
but i heard yall saying 'shut up...she was???'

so what have i been doing???
well the question is...what HAVEN'T i been doing.

FIRST: momma was here.
we had SO much fun.
she spoiled me rotten. {and the kiddies too.}
she gave me some of my grandmomma's jewelry...
we went shopping {ALOT}...
we watched movies...
and then she left and i was SUPER sad.
i need her to live closer to me...seriously.

THEN: i got completely knee deep into reading.
what was i reading???
{4 books actually.}
it took me 4 days but i finished 4 novels:
twilight...new moon...eclipse...breaking dawn
{all by mrs stephenie meyer...and i'm addicted!!!}
twilight the movie comes out 11.21.08!!!
{you'll notice a countdown counter at the bottom of this blog!!!}

also i've been enjoying all my bday gifts.
boy did i make out!!!

what did i get???
well this stuff:
my claddagh ring {yeah baby!!!}
a new shelf for the living room with the fixin's {meaning with berry swags and fall decos.}
primitive lap quilt.
tons o' books...including: tour ireland with pat sloan & pat sloan's favorite techniques.
a bundle of nikki fat quarters. {pat sloan's}
new clothes.
and i'm sure i'm forgetting something.

THIRD: it's football season.
i've been really consumed with that.
did i mention that the hubby is a coach???
and i'm the team mom???
yeah...lot's going on there.
AND i was asked to be the cheer leading coordinator for the whole league next season.
boy oh boy...decisions...decisions.

and LASTLY: the whole griffith clan has been down with a sickness this past week.

so that's been my wild & crazy life since september 23rd.
i have missed yall like crazy!!!

oh and pat sloan asked me to be the resident chef of her october newsletter!!!
i shared my caramel apple fall cake.
go here to check it out.

and yall should check this out...an irish quilting magazine!!!
yall will totally fall in love with sherry's blog too...it's a great one.

so i think that that's about it.
i didn't wanna overload yall with pics AND info.
so let me know what yall wanna see and i'll post it next.

Pin It!
