In My World on this Friday...

First off, it is HOT!!!!!! We have had ten straight days of weather over 100 degrees--which broke a long-standing record for our state! (We are used to it being very hot here in Alabama, but usually we're battling 90-something degrees and stifling humidity. For the last two weeks, it's been hovering at or over 100 degrees.)

When I picked up the girls from school yesterday, I had to drive without the air conditioning on (my car is giving me fits and I sometimes have to keep the ac off to keep it going well. Another story entirely, but one I'm trying not to get discouraged about!!) and when we got out at a store to buy S a candy bar (her treat for being home with me all day yesterday while I researched for several articles I'm doing and worked on some scrapbook pages for a class I'll be teaching--NOT fun in her book!) we went inside and just soaked up the cold air!!!

So, we're bravely battling this heat!!

Also going on...

* I'm thinking of how to make High School Musical 2 cupcakes!!!

* I can't wait to scrap tonight with Adrienne! She said she wanted to scrap until she passed out! Looks like it might be a long night!

* I'll be at Scrapbook Mania tomorrow for a Get-to-Know-You time. If you live in the Bham area, drop by the store between 3 and 5 and meet some of the designers, bring some stuff to work on, and eat some pizza!

* Loving my blog friends! Maria made my day with her post (but she's way too sweet--I credit that for not knowing me in person!! lol); Mama P's comment on yesterday's post cracked me up (something about naming her next child Delaney if she ever managed to have sex again!); and sharing football excitement and anticipation with Phats and Mandy (who have been providing me with almost daily fixes of football videos to get me so pumped up!). I am loving meeting so many of you--new friends every day it seems--and just anticipate coming on every morning and seeing comments from all of you!

* Wishing I had my card reader right now! I did a layout last night that I think is my current favorite!! I really love it and want to share it with you! It is for the One Little Word challenge and is based on an awesome word--"Seek"!! Pop back in later this afternoon and I hope to have it up.

* Really craving some chocolate! (but ooh...i forgot i'm making cupcakes...yay me!)

* Wishing you all a happy Friday and weekend!!!

The bad thing is, I have got to get out of wearing a lot of black to work, black, heat, sun.... Hmmm not working for me, but at least my blazer is white. Have fun with the cup cakes....Cin

Nice catching up with you...I wish the temps would break for y'all down South and that some would get the needed raindrops!!

Maria--You are TOO sweet! I'm just glad it made you happy!! We will have FUN tonight!!
Kimberly--Oh, how FUN! I can't wait to hear about it!
Tammy--Can you believe it? We actually have been getting rain today, which has cooled it off for now at least. of course, tomorrow it will probably be hot AND muggy. But for right now, it's some better!

Dawn Bibbs said...

Cheryl, is this heat not KA-razy??? I think OUR hot weather is coming from YA'LL!!! :-) My mother lives in Alabama and she's not loving it so much. She said the heat here in Atlanta was why she was moving back to Mobile...lol. Sorry mom!

You are killing me with this HSM2 stuff. Jayla is SO ready too. I just set the timer on the TV so she won't have to worry about missing ANYTHING when it comes on. So whatever she's watching at 7:58pm, it'll change to the channel for HSM. She just told me that the timer is taking too long. LOL Hope you and Adrienne have a good time tonight. Can't wait to see what ya'll create.

Have a great weekend!!!

crazy working mom said...

Whew! That's hot girlfriend...I so feel your pain now.

Adrienne said...

YAY! It's time!!! LOL

Kari said...

FALL CAN'T GET HERE SOON ENOUGH! I used to live in Mobile for a few years...you know, when I was young and the humidity didn't drain the very life from my chubby little body like it does these days. I have a cousin who lives in B'ham. Haven't heard from her lately. Hope she hasn't "expired" from that horrific weather ya'll are having (maybe I should call her and check! lol).

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality said...

Hi, Cheryl, thanks for stopping by to see me. I know..can you believe this heat we're having. It's just brutal & so much worse than normal. I'm SO ready for Sept. to get here. Come on Fall!

Michelle said...
