Soooo.. my air conditioner started to leak! Eeeek we are still at over 110 in AZ!! I was able to get the appointment for today (Friday) My time frame was 9-1 that they would be here so I had to take the day off from work and can you believe they came at 9?? Yippee! 20 minutes later all was good and guess what... home alone!!

I feel so spoiled when my girls are at school and I'm off from work! But it got even better! Husband came home and we went to a yummy lunch! Fried lasagne.... OMG so good!!!

And I still have 3 hours ALONE!! Time to catch up on Challenges and Design Team work!!

  4. Love that little monkey! Congrats on the blog award as well! I have never heard of fried lasagna- but it sounds delicious :)Amy

  5. Hi Carrie~ Thank you so much for the award, I have it on my blog page....

  6. Your card is fabulous. Love the addition of the bananas :) Thank you so much for the award Carri. You are so sweet to think of me! Yours is well deserved. I laughed when I read slow drivers and then the cussing part. When I used to get mad at a crappy driver I would call the driver an "FI". Can't do even that anymore 'cause my son figured out what it meant! Whoops ;)

  7. Congratulations on the awards, Carri and oh my gosh, is this card adorable! The monkey is so awesome! I have never heard of fried lasagna but yum!! :)


  8. such a cute card. Congratulations on your award.

  9. Like the Monkey Card. Especially like the paper crimped look. Been there done that with ac going out. Any time we had company staying with us no matter where we lived the ac would go out. Now they have a saying about relatives & fish after a couple days that I'm figuring you know but anyway we have not had any more visitors and the ac continues to work like a champ & it is 100+ here still in Central TX.
