Today we celebrated Administrative Professionals Day at our office~I am so lucky to work in a place where I am appreciated not only on Admin Prof Day, but every single day *smile* (already ate some of the chocolate earlier~so this picture is missing an item, LOL!!)

Last week while Mike and I were on vacation, I was trying to take some photos of us using my camera's timer...well I got a lot of shots of my butt, LOL!! Since I didn't get out of the way fast enough (2 seconds is not enough time, seriously!!), so I ordered a camera remote (used to have one for my last camera and never ordered one for my new one~LOVE IT!!!). Well there wasn't much of a learning curve~the very first photo I look like a dear in headlights (that is Dewey helping me out, and don't mind my exercise uniform, LOL!!).

I was just thinking about my POTD (photo of the day), and wondering what I was going to photograph at 8:30 pm. They I walked into my craft room and found our crazy cat Pete, a.k.a. CRAZY PETE, sitting in my light box (which I use for photos on my other "crafty" blog) . That is why we call him CRAZY PETE *smile*

I learned how to make this bunny fold napkin here. It seriously took me 20 min (or more) to figure out how to do it, and it still didn't quite look like Martha's~I am NO Martha Stewart, LOL!!!!
Happy Easter!!!

I like to get as much done the day before our family dinners as possible~I just whipped up some deviled eggs (since Mike and Josh like them so much, and I had made lots of hard boiled eggs). I make them the same way my Mor Mor (grandmother in Swedish) did...Miracle Whip, s&p, a little paprika, and some parsley or chives for color. She even game me this egg plate a long, long time ago *makes me smile every time I make them*

I am hiding these in the garage fridge~cause someone, I won't mention any names (JOSH) has been know to steal a few before dinner.

and a close up just for fun!!!

If you know know that I do NOT have a green thumb!! So when I got this orchid for my birthday, I thought it would be a matter of days before I killed it. Well, to my disbelief, it is still going strong :)

365 {4.4.11}

One of the things on my agenda today was tackling Ashley's old bedroom (which is now our guest room). Josh had purged a lot of stuff (junk) from his room a couple of weeks ago and decided to store the stuff he wanted to keep, but didn't know where to put, in Ashley's room. I also joined in on the storing of stuff (junk); things like birthday party decorations, wrapping paper, my ironing pile, photography props, need I say more (OK don't judge, LOL!)? I was starting to feel like someone from this show!! Today I rectified the situation!!! Since I was too lazy to change my 50 mm lens from my camera, you are gonna get the close up version of before and after.

Before: (I had actually started to dig into the mess, then realized I forgot to take a before photo...and I was not about to put the stuff (junk) back, just for the photo, LOL!).

all of Josh's stuff that he didn't want to get rid of in bins (which surprisingly fit in his OWN closet!!)

Stuff to go in the trash or to Goodwill.

After: I feel so much better getting things back to my OCD state *wink*
