Lazy days of summer

I can not believe we are in this HOT 90 degree weather again and summer is still not FULLY here. ugh! I dread summer. I am SO NOT a summer person. Maybe it's because I can't wear a bathing suit *lol* or maybe it's the fact that I sweat like a pig when it's winter, so you can imagine me at summer time. egh!
Anyway, I came on here to share another layout not to whine. HA! I am on a roll, well, not really...but two layouts in two weeks. That my friends is the sweet smell of progress AND I have a newborn. Some credit here please. :)

(Layout from a Studio Calico Sketch- Maggie Holmes)

I had to hurry and snap a picture before Noah was up from his nap. AND as you can see the pic is all wonky-click on it for a larger image. I just had to scrap Ethan's obsession with his brother's cheeks. He can't stop kissing his brother. I have threatened him with time-outs. YES, insane! It's just that sometimes, Noah will scream from the smotherings. lol So sad, but so true.

Oh, and up next is something I found PRETTY DANG cool. Emily Anderson is this cool mama of 4. Yes, she has 4 little ones under 5. Bless her heart! Anyway, she started this thing called EMBRACE THE CAMERA. Every Thurs. She encourages us to "embrace the camera". I absolutely HATE pictures taken of me. BUT...I can't help but complain when I look through all the pics of Ethan as a baby and Albert is in all of them ha! It's my own fault. I tend to pick at my face, my rolls of fat, my freckles, my flabby arms and I just decide not to be in them...see...
So...that stops here! I plan on taking a pic with my munchkins every Thurs. Bed head and flabby arms. LOL SO....Please join me!


RECIPE FOR THIS SHOT:

1 tired mama, with ratty hair.

1 cute 4 year old with a mouth full of lunch.

1 flabby arm (haha sorry, had to say it).

1 soon to be kindergartner, with crazy bed head.

= SUCCESS!

Hope you have a good day, and I'll be back tomorrow with some cute icons Albert made for Ethan's birthday.

xoxo, Veronica

I sweat all winter too! I have a fan on my desk at work & it's on constantly - other people have on their space heaters & I have on my fan!!! The humidity really kicks my butt - we went from 70 to 90 with high humidity - yuck! Love your blog - everything is so cute!

Own those arms of yours....just think of all the great things they allow you to do!!

Another awesome layout and I love the photo idea! I am so the same way! I'd much rather be behind the camera!

I am no summer person either and I agree that it might have to do with the bathing suit thing, LOL! *rolls eyes* for all the skinnny people.

Love the layout :)
You have a newborn and are doing a lot better than I am, woman!
