The most anticipated weekend of the year...

...because it's finally, finally going to be warm!! Like, really warm, summer temperatures even!! I can't wait, I have been patiently waiting for the warm weather to come our way, and so far we have only been teased with little semi-warm, semi-sunny days that were decent if you wore a sweater and stayed out of the wind, but they are calling for gorgeous days all weekend and I can't wait! No more socks on the pavement for me!!

I'm hoping this weekend will be filled with painting my toenails, wearing a cute summer top/dress I got at VV on Monday, planting some sweet basil and chives, hanging my clothes out on the clothesline to dry, BBQ-ing and making potato salad, drinking an iced coffee or two, sitting in the sun while reading, maybe (hopefully) getting a start on a tan, walking to the corner store to get Slushies with Dan and going for a drive along the coast to take some pics. Does that sound perfect? I think it does.

I have been ignoring my little blog lately and I feel bad, I really enjoy blogging but at the moment, there's not a whole lot to talk about! Life is just cruising along the way it does, nothing too exciting going on I must say. I've been scrapping a little, mostly just working on getting the first batch of 365s pics done for my mini. I'm up to Day 100, so I still have about 260 days (but only about another 120 shots) left to print and do. It's ending up being quite thick, I think I'm going to have to go out and buy some extra large bookrings, these little ones just won't do! I love how it's coming out so far, even the bare bones without any embellishments. For now it's just paper and pics, but I plan on adding some words and embellishments once the pages are created. Here's a little pic of how it looks.

I also had some fun the other night attempting to create my own transparent overlays, à la Hambly. I just took a sheet of transparency, my Sharpie and some ruled paper and made a grid of dots. It worked out ok, but I really enjoyed the idea of making my own, so I'll definitely be making more and using them on my pages and in this mini. Although I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to resist buying some yummy sheets for much longer.

Here's my latest card for the 52Q. It's so negative, but I decided to include it anyway because that was what popped into my head when I read the question "what is the truth?". I want the answers to these questions to be honest, even if they don't always paint me in the greatest light. Keepin' it real, yo!

So I've decided that my biggest resolution for this summer will be to WEAR MORE DRESSES. I love the look of dresses but I always find them so hard to wear...the special underwear/no bra situation, proper shoes that go with it, the hair, to me it all just seems like it has to be a big production, but I'm determined to spend more than 5 mins on myself in the morning and sport some pretty summer frocks, kind of like these from Bluebirdvintage (such a gorgeous store!)


And, for some more eye candy goodness, some of my Flickr Favs as of late. Same themes as always...girls (pregnant ones too), couples, dogs and landscapes. The stuff of my dreams.

Ok, I'm outta here, hopefully I'll be back after the weekend to post some pics of me and hubs enjoying the sunshine before it disappears again.

Does anyone ele have any summer-y plans for this weekend?

Au revoir.

I am going to this Dog Park up north that has a water feature! Out to breakfast. Um... Some yardwork perhaps? Planting Herbs.

:) Yay for warm weather!

J'espère qu'il va faire aussi beau qu'on annonce. Ici, du travail dehors, un peu de scrap si j'ai le temps ou l'inspiration :), un peu de ménage de printemps. Dave s'attend d'aller jouer au golf pour la première fois cette saison.
Comme toi, j'ai vraiment hâte de ramasser mon linge d'hiver et de porter quelque chose de léger et de fleuri. Des sandales, peut-être.
Bonne fin de semaine,
Maman X0X

I hope the weekend turns out just the way you wanted!!! Your minibook looks gorgeous and I'm sure you look stunning in a dress! And about sheets... I'm still a bit puzzling about how to use them... I'll see what you come up with and maybe try working with it too sometime (have bought myself 3 hambley's last month, but really have no idea what to do with it/how to use it)
