My first Sophie G Moose Card
Happy Thursday!! The "work" week and in my world the "school" week is winding down. This week has actually gone by relatively quickly. I'll get a nice relaxing evening because I'm taking the boys and heading on over to a friend's house for dinner. Yay, no cooking for me. Its always a struggle when my hubby leaves town because that means I have to cook and grocery shop. Which reminds me that I had wonderful plans to go to Joann's and blow my several 50% off coupons yesterday morning after I dropped my oldest off at school. At Joann's right at 9am when they opened and home right at 9:30am!
The twins never want to be in their stroller anymore and Nate had this "thing" yesterday where he just screamed the whole time we were in there. He was screaming and crying so hard that he started to get splotchy looking around his brows. One lovely Mom came up and said she completely understood because she happened to be a mother of a set of 10 year old twins and I did get to chat with a friend of mine that happened to be shopping, but towards the end, I was starting to get the "stares" from other customers and employees.
Don't get me wrong, I totally understand that they too are trying to enjoy themselves, but are the stoney faced unsympathetic looks necessary??? I don't know, for some reason it seems like I've been getting the "looks" lately. It just makes me say "grrr".
Anyway, sorry, I'm done ranting and I'll probably attempt a trip there before the weekend. So, I get a free dinner and my lovely friend is going to watch the boys for me for a bit so I can go hang out with some other twin moms from my multiples group. Plus I signed up to be a mentor twin mom to a mom who is expecting twins in a couple of months and I will get the opportunity to meet her tonight.
Now, for myMoose card. I think he's very cute and my brother's birthday is in a few days so I whipped this up last night. I also got to use my copics and overall, I'm pleased with the way the card turned out. I wanted something pretty simple but cute. Sophie's cake looks a little weddingish, but that's ok. I guess he deserves a big cake :)
