Project Purple version of a Meal Planner

Here is my version of a MEAL PLANNER:
It's on my pantry door.  Remember when I did my pantry makeover?
Well I've been slacking in the cooking department.
So to get myself motivated I decided to take this Meal Planner Board
and Project Purple it!

Turks and Caicos Tips and Tricks

HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend this trip.
The food was INCREDIBLE the service was AMAZING and the people were SO friendly!

There were 9 of us (10 months to 60+ years) there for 8 days and no one left the resort!  My brother did do a little scuba diving but that was included in the all inclusive!

So much to do for a WIDE variety of ages.

Kite with Silhouette Autographs

D has been in the WONDERFUL "Kites Program" at school this year.
It's the "Transitional Kindergarten" program.
I found these kites in the Earthglow gift shop last year.
They're made by Round Top and are metal.
I wanted the kids' autographs but didn't trust them to write them ON the kites.
So I had them write their names on paper then scanned them into my computer and cut them out on my Silhouette machine! :)

Happy Mother's Day & Eve

The night before Mother's Day my hubby, bubby and daddy used their Christmas present of a Segway tour of Bricktown.  They absolutely LOVED it and couldn't stop talking about it.  If you need a gift for the person who has EVERYTHING check out the segway tours.

Teacher Appreciation Flower

My boys each had a "bring your teacher a flower" day during teacher appreciation week.  Not the same day of course that would be TOO easy :).
I have a BLACK thumb!  So I didn't think it was appropriate to send something alive!
Plus as a former teacher I know you only have so many hands to carry live flowers home.  This was my solution!  A flower lei!  In her favorite color of course (unless I didn't know her favorite color then it was my favorite color.)

First "Professional" Photo Shoot
It's the first one I was the "professional".
Thank you to my wonderful teachers "Leslie and Cindy."
I had NO Idea how much you taught me until I got there.
So here are a few pics from my cousin's junior prom.
Ryan, you look so handsome!
Brianna, you are beautiful!
Thanks for asking me to capture the moment for you.
