Boom boom POW

It's been a BIG month!
I've been so busy with my family and a week break and sickness and my birthday!
WHA' ??????!!!!!!!!!
It's true and it was a big one this year.
Okay, I'll fill you in on everything=0)

First of all...my blogging time is still super short since I've been volunteering as the art teacher. It's been super busy with both classes, but the kids are having fun!

Here we are at school doing a JUMP a Thon!
My little X is still learning to jump rope, so this was JUST before the tears of frustration.

I started working on some new styles for Spring!
Who doesn't like hydrangeas?
It's always so tough to get great photos. I've got to do it right before I pick up X from school and my little five finger bandit LOOOOVVESSS to grab and run. So, it's been VERY rushed and I honestly can't help but crack up. What can I possibly do with a 2yr old as a personal photography assistant. LOL!

These are mad times and I think we all need to be reminded of what's most important=0)

Six watercolor bracelet is back!
I originally made these when I started Cielo Azul Jewelry in 2009. I sold about eight and I was ready to move on, LOL! I thought I'd bring it back 2011 style, lol. It's got what every gardener loves and everything is still alive...in case you have a brown thumb;o)

I turned 40 this year. Yep, so I got a hair cut! I had someone come up to me and ask if I had hair extensions, LOLLLLLLLLL! So I didn't get a chance to get a hair cut last year. OMG, isn't that SO crazy? OKAY, so I had a very small party this year. I originally planned on having about 25-30 people, but my husband lost his job and so the budget had to be cut WAY back. I had been planning this parTAY for a while, so I still wanted it to be super fun. So, this was what I had to do. First of all I wanted to have a party that was all about what I like and how I've changed/not changed over the last 40 years. I love to dance! And I think I can make it on SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, LOL. Yep, I so can not make it...but I can dream. I started the party with my girls and DANCE!!!! We had a private class with THEeeee KJ Gonzales. I can not confirm NOR deny that this isn't me in the video, lol. I can not confirm NOR deny that my crew and I didn't learn this EXACT routine, LOL. Some way...some how nobody took photos. I personally think he was impressed with our hip hop moves=0) After our class our dates met us for cocktails and a lovely dinner.

I just want to say one thing....I have not had so much fun in I don't know how long. I'm SO thankful to have such great friends.

CHEERS to a lovely week,

My other job......
X-I can't believe you are turning 40 years old.
Me-Yep...it's true.
X-When you turn 50 I'm going to drive the whole family to a restaurant for dinner.
