Monday Monday

"Monday, Monday, so good to me Monday mornin', it was all I hoped it would be". Ok, I'm laughing at all of you, because I know you're going to have that song running through your head ALL day today!!
I made this wall hanging for my mom's stamping area and gave it to her for mother's day. I used bazzill for the blue and the green papers and the dp is lily kate. The stamps are MFT Serenity Now and Twisted Sentiments. It says: "Give me a minute, I'm having a stampgasm". The twisted sentiment are absolutely hilarious - check them out at my favorite things.
Well, a happy late mother's day to all of you mommys out there! I had a pretty darn good mother's day. My boys made me breakfast - when Gage got up Kai told me I had to go back to bed so that they could bring me breakfast. OK - I'm all happy for someone to make me breakfast, but what is the deal with breakfast in bed? I don't want to eat in my bed! We had eggs, bacon and waffles (at the table). My mom came down and she gave me a very pretty card and $$$ from her, dad and the kids. I think I'll buy some more nestabilities (although I should buy new tennis shoes). She liked her gift from us as well. We went shopping and didn't even buy anything, just had a nice afternoon together. We were just getting ready to fix dinner when Christie called and asked if we wanted to go out to eat with them. So, we went to Carlos for dinner - no dishes for me (thank goodness because my back was hurting!).
I got a lot of stamps unmounted this weekend - I can see a light at the end of the tunnel. Unfortunately, that means that I didn't get much done around the house. I tried to do laundry and when I turned on the washing machine, nothing happened. So, I tried plugging in my embossing gun - it didn't work either. I tried changing the fuse and that didn't work, so I called an electrician to come out today. Our house is over 100 years old and not all of the outlets work. So, I suspect that may be the problem. At any rate, hopefully I can get my house cleaned up (really just needs vacuumed), get the laundry caught up, finish unmounting my stamps and make some fun things to post here!
