It Is Finished!!

Yay the living room is done!  My hubby busted his buns to get the final pieces of the ceiling done at 9 last night.  It was tedious and killed his neck and arms, but it is now finished.  The only thing left are drapes and artwork which will take some time so that we can find stuff that goes best.

A couple of pics for you to see, but click on the link to see more -

 Here is a slideshow of the room -

*Living Room Done!*

What a true labor of love for my husband.  I'm glad he's done cuz he deserves to relax after all this!

On a side note, I blew out my darn knee!!  It's been giving me various degree's of trouble for a few months now, but for the past 4 weeks or so it's been really annoying. Last Monday I ran on the treadmill and 4 1/2 minutes in it hurt too much so I slowed the speed and upped the incline instead of being smart and getting off.  I was limping from there on in.  On Tuesday I had several errands to run for my baking and such, picked up a glass table top for our new coffee table, and had MaryAnn help me carry it in instead of telling hubby.  Got up the porch steps and to the front door when, POP!  my knee just went, and yes it made a big popping sound.  I froze then started screaming for John who ran to the door only to start screaming at me.  "Why in the world would you do this for!?"  I'm hysterical crying asking him not to yell at me right this second, he went to pick me up but it hurt so bad I asked him to just lay me on the steps next to our entry way.  I stayed there for 15 minutes feeling like I was going to faint or throw up!  I have never felt a pain like that, and that's saying a lot considering I've had 6 kids.  His ortho surgeon is such an awesome guy, John emailed him asking if he could see me and he called John's cell and told him to bring me right in the next morning at 7:30, thought is I have cartilage stuck in the joint, hence all the pain.  Going for an MRI tomorrow and will probably need surgery.  Oh well such is life, I'll just roll with it and hope I have a quick recovery!

The Situation

Yup that Situation :)  I am so happy to hear he is suing Abercrombie and Fitch.  I'll be honest when Jersey Shore first came out I thought what a disgrace, but I became addicted and have learned that this isn't a knock on Italians, but entertainment plain and simple.  These people have scored themselves a money maker and good for them.  Yes I think some of the girls leave a lot to be desired in the rep dept.but that's their parent's problem not mine. 

A few months ago that waspy snob store asked Mike to stop wearing their clothes and offered him money for it.  Meanwhile they are marketing shirts that say things like GTL...You Know The Deal, and The Fitchuation.  Sorry  guys, that's is copyright infringement plain and simple.  To bad he doesn't have the vacant waspy far away snobby ass look, but tough.  I hope he gets every penny he's suing for.

Sharing Some Blog Love

I have to take a minute to spread some bloggy love around.  These blogs are filled with scrappy goodness and the artists are just amazing.  They both are on g45's design team which makes it all the better!

The first is such an elegant artist, so very beautiful, I could look at her blog all day long -

Each Moment, Only Once owned by Tara Orr.  This gal has such an exquisite style.  Some of her creations are to die for.  Love, love love looking at her work.

The Paper Trail owned by Laura Denison.  Wow, this lady is mucho talented, what she can do with envelopes and paper bags just makes me drool!!!  Now some of you may know that I kinda prefer the mini-albums and such to the actual lo making and she is a dream come true.  Laura is SO innovative, the hinges she's made for her albums is quite frankly freaking awesome. I love how she says "this album has lots of real estate" :) I  subscribe to her you-tube videos and she does weekly classes on ustream!  Go to her blog and check it out so you can see just what an amazing talent the woman is.  I stop by her blog almost everyday to see what's new.  Oh and guess what!?  She knows the big man himself, yeah that's right Tim Holtz!

Here's a video of one of her albums so you can get a taste of what a talent she is-

Enjoy and create!

Wedding Pics

It truly was just a beautiful day!  The sun was shining, everyone looked incredible, we had a blast!  What touched me was seeing all five of my children crying on the alter while their sister was being married.  Even little Santino was crying these big tear drops.  When I asked him why he said he's gonna miss Desi, I told him she isn't going away she just got married and he has a new brother.

The kids had a great time dancing, that Santino got down all night long.  We were cracking up.

My daughter looked so beautiful, she was breathtaking.

Here's the slide show.

Here are videos of my son Santino getting down and my niece Nicolle's boyfriend in the red shirt dancing.  Santino had stripped down to his t shirt and what ever my nephew showed him to do he did it. They were awesome and we all danced all night long.  My legs were killing me the next day!

It's The Final Countdown!!

Yessiree, it's finally here in four more days. We're just doing some final prepping, getting organized, but we are ready for a wedding!!

I can't wait to see the girls in their gowns, Santino in his tux, he is so stoked to be the ring bearer, boy he keeps telling everyone!  My brothers and their families get in on Thursday evening my husband's former partner from NYPD is coming in on Friday, it was unexpected but made my hubby's day and we're excited.  Desirae has been pretty calm, as has my son-in-law to be.  Drama has been to a minimum and that's a good thing!

Here's a peak at my gown  -

I'll definitely post picks after I know there will be a ton.  On Monday we'll be going to Disneyland with all the family I know we'll have a great time.
