July Kit Projects

I had a fantastic weekend last weekend scrapbooking into the wee hours of the night. 4:30 in the morning to be exact! Yikes...I haven't pulled one of those in a looooong time. I think Michelle and I watched all 3 Twilight movies and a few others before and wonder it took me so long to get my projects done. I hope you like them, they will be on our flickr page this weekend.

This is a fun one of the boys at our garage sale.
Ethan had found an old pumpkin hat and decided to sport it for the day.

My sweet girl and her puppy snuggling...

A super fun weekend with our friends!!

My kiddos and their cousins that we don't get to see nearly enough.

And...a card, I know right!! I did another card!!!

The last 3 projects were scraplifted from the Kenner Road Blog...I recently fell in love with this girls work, so go check her out...she's pretty nifty!

So that's what I've been up to this last week, how about you? Got any fun plans for the month of July? We are taking the kids up to Michigan Adventure in the morning, they are BEYOND excited and I can't wait to have fun with my family. We need some good family time, it's been a crazy summer so far and we all seem to be going every which way but with each other! I'll post some pics when we get back.

Until then be sure to head over to the Rooster blog to check out the July Kit, Butterfly Stampede and Michelle's inspiration for the week! Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!!

Peace & Love,

Last Ride with the Edge

Hi everyone! Happy Friday!! I have my video of the Ford Edge, a day late but it was so flippin' rainy yesterday I couldn't do it. (Pay no attention to the nervous rubbing of the lip) :)

He, I always laugh when I see myself in these videos...what a DORK!! I sure hope you have enjoyed watching these, even though I think I look ridiculous it was an awesome experience! Kathy over at Harold Ziegler in Elkhart asked me to choose my favorite car...but I am going to keep you in suspense until Sunday night! I totally have a favorite and I want one really bad...really REALLY bad!

Have a SAFE & FUN 4th of July everyone! We are headed down to lake Wawasee for the weekend. We go every year to hang with some great friends and the fireworks are shot from a barge in the middle of the lake, SO COOL! There is nothing like watching the sky light up as you lie on a boat with your babies snuggled up with you! I can't wait to be with these cool cats tomorrow...

Peace & Love!

On the *Edge*

Hello Folks. It has been WAY too long since my last post but it has been so stinkin' busy around here! Here are some things I've been up to!

And the most exciting thing this week...
Driving a new Ford Edge from Harold Ziegler Ford in Elkhart!!

I am having a ball driving this car! It is SOOOO not a mini van, and I LOVE that! I am so over driving a mini van and this car has been such a breath of fresh air. It feels a lot like the Ford Explorer just a little more compact. I will be back tomorrow with my fun video "tour" of this bad boy! And yes...this car is ALL boy! :)

Peace & Love!

Happy Fathers Day!

I hope everyone had a fantastic-ly amazing fathers day! Ours was pretty low key which is nice sometimes. My mom and dad came down yesterday and we grilled out with friends. We haven't done that in a looooong time and it was so nice to hang with those folks that are kind enough to be our friends (mom and dad don't have a choice)! It was a great night watching the kids all run around together...and FROM eachother! Then of course as it got dark the customary chasing of the fireflies which always leads to TONS of mosquito bites! Today I just relaxed with my parents as Von golfed with the neighbor boys. I got all the June Midnight Rooster kits packed up and they are ready to ship tomorrow! I also did a video post of my current vehicle obsession...the Ford Flex! Please don't judge me on this video today...I was a little tired and lost myself as I went into detail on the car!! There are SO many cool things about this car that my ADD kicks in and my mind is jumping from one cool thing to the other! So please...forgive the girl behind the camera!

I love this car so much and I am so happy to have had the opportunity to drive one of these bad boys! I hadn't heard much about them and man is that a shame! These Flex's have so much to offer a family and I highly recommend you go test drive one. Kathy and Damon over at Harold Ziegler Ford have a few of these on the lot...go check them out!!

I'm peacin out for the night!!! Have a super duper week everyone!!!!
Peace and Love!

I love when I am surprised...

This new car, the Ford Flex, has surprised me. It was so different looking form the Explorer so I figured it had to be different looking on the inside too. WRONG!! It is amazing, inside and out.

We have been driving it since Monday and to say that I am enjoying it is an uderstatement! And Von...he LOVES this Flex. It sits lower to the ground but still has that SUV feel. And it has the room of a mini van without the "mini van" status, which "I" love because I am tired of being a mini van driving mommy. It has all the SYNC features which is fantastic...I still get to tell "Nancy" what to do! I won't get too detailed in my post tonight, I want to save it for video posting tomorrow.

If you can't wait too see it, then drive over to your local Ford dealership and tell 'em the Blogging Mommy sent you over to drive this amazing machine! If you live in my area, eh hem, that would be Harold Ziegler Ford in Elkhart. ;)

See ya tomorrow!
Peace and Love!

My last ride with the Explorer...

That's right, I had to take back the Explorer today. I'm gonna miss that girl. I have some last bit of awesome-ness to show you so soak it up and enjoy!!!

Remember when I said I was going to share a really cool feature? So I was driving down the by-pass last weekend and I have this baby on cruise. Suddenly it starts slowing down and I haven't touched anything...then I noticed the car in front of me had slowed down. Hmmmm. The car in front of me started to speed back did the Explorer. senses the speed of the car in front of you when you have your cruise control on and adjusts your speed so you don't get too close. Amazing. I asked it to order me P.F. Changes but then took it back because I was worried it might actually show up in the glove box or something! I'm tellin' ya guys, this vehicle does it all!!

Here are a couple of other cool things I wanted to show you before I took her back...
First, the "key":

And now the back of the car:

I had a small tear in my eye as I gave Kathy from Harold Ziegler the key back, but I was super excited to see what new vehicle I was going to fall in love with next!

Well here it is!! A beautiful Ford Flex!

Come back Wednesday as I show off this amazing "hidden" gem of the Ford Family!!

Peace and Love!!

For the love of an Explorer

Oh man do I love this car. Just look at her!! Isn't she beautiful!?

I think I need my Midnight Rooster logo on the side...
Too much? How 'bout on the back??
I see a white decal for the back window in the works...
So I have some more video as promised of this lovely vehicle so kindly given to me for the week by our local Ford dealership, Harold Ziegler Ford of Elkhart.
Once again I look horrible!! The allergies are kickin' my butt and my eyes are all swollen and red and itchy!! So pay no attention to me...just check out the cool feature I highlighted...along with my daughter Emma!

And third times a charm...

So I realize I taped this on Monday, but with the sad news of little Isaac I just didn't have it in me last night to post about the car. But today is a new day, a fresh day...a very HOT day and the LAST day of school for our kiddos. If you have any questions about this car or any other cars Ford makes you can contact Harold Ziegler Ford and ask for Damon. Or better yet, go in and test drive one of these babies and fall in love like I have!! Make sure to tell them "The Blogging Mommy" sent you!

I hope you all have had a fantastic day and I will see you back here tomorrow!!
We are continuing to pray for Isaac and his family as he begins his journey on the fight of his life. I ask you to keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

Peace and love!
AKA: The Blogging Mommy!
