Today is Kayliegh's first day of daycare. We begin transitioning her in today, for the next two weeks. Then I start work June 11. Today we will go together for one hour, than she will do 2 hours on her own tomorrow, then 3 the following and so on. Last week when the representative from the wee watch agency was here to do the paper work I cried twice!! Our time together has gone so fast. I am not ready to give up our days together, our naps, and our adventures, and yet in some ways I am ready. She is just so grown up. I know we all say that, but its just so damn true. And just when she is getting to be so fun and funny. She is so close to walking, and will stand on her own for a few seconds, she is full of crazy sounds, and is starting to wave hi and bye bye, and to give kisses. Oh and she laughs and laughs at all sorts of things now. oh my baby turd :)

I have always been an organizer, a list maker, a day planner user...I like to write things down, I like the feel of a pen. I have kept all of my day planners in my hope chest with my diaries and they are a hoot to go back over.
Well I found this awesome system on this organizing blog, and had to make my own. I used a photo album that I bought at Michaels because I loved the linen cover. I used 5 of the actual album pages for the index tabs, as the plastic acts as a reinforcer. Instead of placing photos in I placed some Amy Butler PP. I cut and hole punched the paper myself and decorated it with tabs, and stickers etc. The clip on the front holds notes, that will later be added to the planner.
I have 5 sections, just like inspiration planner. Lists, errands, notes, paper, calender, plus a pocket page.
I love this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A shout out to my Marmie and also to Mellissa on this special day.

I have been hunting down a pair of crocs that will fit Kayleigh's little piggies, and finally found a pair today. Last pair in her size in the store. Anyway, once I saw how cute they looked on her I had to get a matching pair :) Good thing because by the time I got home I had worn a hole in my pink crocs :( Ahhhh they were good to me got them last summer and even wore them all winter. Check out our cute matching piggies now.

Stephanie and I hung out at A Fine Mess again on Monday and I made this canvas. I love the depth of the canvas. This is a 12x12 and it was only $11, they have the best prices on canvas!! Oooh and I saw something top secret there...all I have to say is HEIDI WHO???
So I have been on this rocker kick, every since the Rock Star show, and have been channelling my inner rocker. I even had a dream last night that I was the drummer in Guns and Roses!! LOL. Of course I have now decided that my baby Kayleigh is going to grow up to have her own girl band, kick'n it in our garage and all :) So I am on the hunt for cool rocker baby gear and came across this kick A## Site, Trendy Tadpole
I love the AB/CD shirt in particular. Definitely check this out girls.
