New Clothes!

Oh I just love new clothes!!! I love yellow and green!! They are my favorite colors and i love when i find them in the right shade to wear!! I am so excited to get new clothes! I just wanted a couple of new t-shirts because mine are 2 and 3 years old. (yes, really) I hate to shop. As a matter of fact, I started trying things on and the first few items were Waaaayyyyy wrong for me so I got frustrated. (yes, I do that quite quickly when it comes to shopping) I almost just said, "Forget it!!" and left the store but I thought, "So, what do I have to go home to? The same tshirts I have been wearing the heck out of for the past two years??!! Just get it over with!" So I stuck it out and I am so glad I did because then things started fitting right and being the right color! yea!! And, I found 2 yellow shirts I love and a green one. (I love green but with the red tint to my hair and skin, it doesn't always agree with me :() I am set for spring, summer and fall!! So excited and comfy! Here is a pix of me in my new yellow shirt and camo capris.

Free Spirit

Ok, I just had to post this! My girlfriend Amanda (who IS the craftiest girl I know) has inspired me to get some layouts done and try to post them on my blog. I am not sure how she got her layouts posted so wonderfully but I will find out!! Anyway, the point being, I love her work and she always has such fun doing it so I figured... get to it Kel!!! So here is the layout I worked on last Friday night at Amanda's house. (Thanks Amanda for the smaller letters and I found a sheet at JoAnn crafts in St. Matthews to get the final "r"!!) (yes, it is just like me to start a layout and not pay attention to whether I have all the letters I need to finish it!! I just finished it this morning after picking up a sheet of letter stickers.)
You should go check out Amanda's "Crafty Girl" page. It is sweet! Her link is:
She always has something interesting going on!
By the way, I love this bird paper from Basic Grey!! (Check out Dee's crafts in St. Matthews!)
My mom took the picture of Riley last summer at the Melwood Arts Center. They had a mini golf art exhibit! Riley loved it and wanted her picture taken in the "clouds" so she laid on the ground and had memol take the picture like she was "floating"! I love this girl! She is my Funny girl with the FREE SPIRIT!!!

The Reader

This kid has had his nose in a book since he was 7. He loves to read!! I am so happy all of my kids love reading!! I love that Quinn can read history, politics, fiction, science-fiction, etc. and never get bored! He is 10 now and I am wondering when To Kill a Mockingbird (my favorite book) would be appropriate for him. ??? He read Bridge To Terebithia at 9 and it made him cry. (don't tell anyone!!) I don't know about boy minds but I want to give it to him when he will LOVE the book. Maybe I will wait a little longer. :)
I am personally reading the book, "A Prayer for Owen Meany". It is my cousins favorite book and told me I should read it. It is definately a boy book and i am nearing the end and still wondering WHERE it is going. (Quinn will have to wait for at least his 12th year for this one). I will let you know what I think of it once I find out how it ends...

I BELONG in Greece.

In case anyone was wondering, I am pretty sure the stork got his direction wrong when he was dropping me off. I think I belong in Greece. I think maybe my parents belong there too. Isn't Partiniokos what our name used to be??? Of course, it is just across the Mediterranean from Lebanon (but with less fighting for eternity I hope) so they are quite similar right?? Well, at least the food is about the same. YUM!!! I am thinking when I am done with nursing school, I may be going to Lebanon AND Greece!! Oh Boy!!

Happy Daisy

Wow, I wait waaayyy too long to post on my blog! I am always ready to say something but usually get totally side tracked! What' new right?
Anyway, I am so ready for the cold and rain to end and the summer to get here! I miss the flowers and in particular, the daisies!! They are the happiest, most care free flower there is and I love them. Now, if we are talkin' smell, I gotta go with the carnations. NO, they are NOT a funeral flower. They have a BIG SMELL and they come in soooo many colors!!!! I LOVE the colors!!!!!!!! Ironically, I hate the food coloring colored daisies! So here's to looking ahead to smiling flowers and sunny days!
