Quick draw McGraw!

That's me! I just have a quick minute to blog, before I have to turn to the tasks at hand that are waiting for me on my desk: layout and bio for the Scraptivity website; 2 circle journals, patiently biding their time; and 60+ proofs to be resized and put to CD for a client. And I thought that I'd throw in five or six loads of laundry to boot! Who said my life wasn't glamourous!! :)

A busy weekend at the Sykes' household. While I spent the better part of the day at work, Gary took the kids to the park Saturday morning for a couple of hours and wore them out! Upon my return home, he said to me, incredulously, "Our daughter is a daredevil!!" Um, yeah, honey, tell me something I DON'T know! HaHa!

Today, I had a bridal shower for Angie, a co-worker of Gary's. The sweetest person you could ever hope to meet - and an awesome photographer too! For those of you who received our "Got Eggnog?" Christmas cards, you have your very own piece of Angie Art!! It was a great time - got to hang out and eat some awesome food with some of Gary's co-workers (or former, I should say!): Shannon, Julie and Stephanie. I also managed to speak to Angie's sister-in-law-to-be about having a booth at an upcoming Pregnancy, Birthing and Parenting Expo that she is running. I am hoping to find my niche in the oversaturated photography market by specializing in pregnancy and newborn b&w photos. The show is September 24th in Kingsville - hopefully I can get everything ready by then!!

While I was at Angie's shower, Connor went to an end-of-the-year pool party at one of his classmates' home. He had a GREAT time!! And despite slathering on the sunscreen, he has come home with a bit of a tan! That boy just has the Italian olive skin!! He makes Aili look even more pale when they are side by side! :)

And I did not take ONE SINGLE photo all weekend!! :( I'm seriously going into withdrawal mode...

Oh, I lied. I did take some self portraits for my Scraptivity layout - not all together flattering or award-winning, but at least I have one to use!

Thanks for looking... and reading!
