*mustache love* :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

U all didn't think Julie could stay away forever, right??? can't let Adam run the blog all the time...then I'd be in serious trouble! lol!! thanks to all of U that gave him love for his birthday...he really enjoyed reading your comments....if U missed what we did on his birthday...U can read all about it here :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Speaking of yesterday...lol....brookie won one of those cheap little toys in those vending machine things at the bowling alley....and WE could NOT figure out what it was...soooooooooooo we decided it was a fake mustache...and lol lol lol lol lol...we decided to have a little fun with it! :)

Here is me :)
 

Brian :)
  

Adam's friend Garrison :)


Adam :)


Brookie :)
 

And then Brookie took it a step further and decided to put the mustache on Adam's school photo! LOL! :)


And I wanted to share some LO's I have made :)
First is for Scrapping the Music...this week we have "Better Way".....a GORGEOUS song...and I chose the lyrics, "You have a right to your Dreams" and I made this LO for Nikki Sivils....and I used her Flaming Butterfly line on this LO... I have always admired Nikki for following her dream in creating her own line of scrapbook papers and embellies.....and I thought these lyrics were perfect for her dream! :):):):):):):):):):):):) Now that I have met her IRL....I truly know what an amazing woman she truly is...she is just the nicest, most genuine person.... :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
 

  

  

And the next lo is for the latest challenge at Scrap That Poetry! :)  I chose the line from the poem..."In the Knot, there's no Untying"..... and again I used the "Flaming Butterfly" line from Nikki Sivils :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):) (and really.....those stickers in the top corner ARE NOT crooked...lol lol lol...I just couldn't get them straight when I photoed them to save my life...lol...really...NOT CROOKED!!! LOL!) :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
 

  

  


And the next one I wanted to share is for this weeks Sketchy Thursdays sketch! loveeeeeeeeeeeeeee this sketch! :):):):):):):):):):):):):) I used the latest NoelMignon.com kit on this lo! :):):):):):) I titled it..."Dress Up Love" :):):):):):):):):) And speaking of NOEL......she is having a little GIVEAWAY over here here here! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
 

  

  

  

  

And the last lo I wanted to share was one I made for NoelMignon.com's latest challenge! :) This is also made with the latest NoelMignon.com kit! :):):):):):):):):):):) We were to pull inspo from this AD - and I used it kinda like a sketch...and we were given a color scheme...I am TRULY loving how this came out! :):):):):):):):):):)


  

  

  

  

  

And I wanted to thank Kim and Jennifer C. for the blog advice they gave....REALLY appreciate it girls!!! MWAH! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
The last thing I wanted to share was little miss model Brookie :):):):):):):):):):):) She is just a camera ham....thank goodness for that after I read what Adam said about NOT being in photos anymore! LOL! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)


  

  

  

  

 

wass up? its me adam again...wanna see what i did yesterday?

wass up everyone? adam here again...and my mom said i could take over again in here and show everyone what i did for my birthday yesterday. dude. i love this being in charge stuff. i think mom should let me take over more. hee.
so we went to the bowling alley first. had so much fun. brookie thought she was bowling, but just between me and you, it was mom or papa mike or even my friend garrison that was doing it for her. i wish peeps would have bowled for me, cuz brookie (well, mom- hee) kicked our butts in the first game!
here are some photos of the stuff we did there.
oh. but first let me like totally rewind here. my mom is evil. pure flippin' evil i tell you. i can't believe i am sharin' this- but whatev- this is what she does to me every flippin' birthday since i have been born- she brings the camera into my bedroom and wakes me up by singing "happy birthday" - dude - doesn't she know i'm a teenager and all i want to do is sleep in? so what if it was 9 in the morning - i need more sleep - but whatev- let me show you what she gets when she wakes me up this way.
hee.
 

  

she wakes me up this way and what? expects me to be all smiles and crud? whatev! its all good though - i guess someday i will appreciate this - whatev - at least that's what mom says! 
ok. so onto the fun part of my day!
this is where we went!
 

 and what was wayyyyyyyyyyy cool was they had the black lights on, so it was like cosmic bowlin' in the day.....

and here are some pics of us all bowling.
 

  

  

  

  

  

Oh. and i so flippin' need this. like really need this. the dale jr. one of course!
 

and here is me and my friend garrison
 

and garrison with his dad jason
 

and me and mom and mom with brookie. i know you are all like so shocked to see so many pics of my mom - but dude- she gave free rein to my papa with the camera (i'm telling ya - she never gives that camera up as freely as she has in the past two days - its like really freakin' me out - maybe this is her reverse psychology on me - instead of me freakin' her out in my teenage years - she's gonna freak me out instead - sooooooooo can not deal with that.... ugh)
 

  

and here is me and brookie
  

then we came back to my place and two of my other friends came over for cake and ice cream - dude - check this ice cream out that my dad got me - is this like flippin' perfect for me or what? 
 

and mom was cool and made cupcakes and a cake for me - really - i might give her a bunch of crap - but i do love her - just don't tell her that - hee - and she used green frosting cuz she like knows that green has been my fave color like forever
 

  

and here i am blowing out the candles


and mom was so funny - you know how you get icing on the bottom of the candles? so mom goes - i'll let Mr. dandy lick the bottoms of the candles - what i don't think she realized was - hee - that Mr. dandy would try and eat them! hee!
 

  

and then we opened presents. so cool - my nana sue and papa mike decorated my envelope for my card with quarters- cha-ching! 
 

and here is some of my presents
 

  

oh and here's a photo of me, garrison and my other friends jacob and andrew that came over. you know my mom is so like gonna scrap this one! ugh. 
 

it was a cool day. can't wait till next year. dude - thanks for lettin' me take over mom's blog for the day again- and thanks to everyone that told me happy birthday - you all rock!
