No Time To Blog

I promised a Thursday 13.

But I can't find time to pee. Much less post. Thanks to Kristina P, (pun INtended) for giving me a kick.
It was going to go something like this:

Reasons I can't blog right now.

  1. 3 new bag orders on top of the 6, I already had. (PLEASE people..if you have a holiday order for me? GET IT IN NOW!
  2. A fundraiser for the GNO Gals. You asked for it. We present A Virtual Food Drive!
  3. DailyBlonde is having Surgery. How does that affect me? She asked me to fill-in for her...and I said yes.
  4. I promised an article for BlissDom (A month ago...) whoops.
  5. ....there's more it's just that dinner is boiling over right now!!!

So instead.

A random Friday Picture Prose. Some shots inside my camera waiting to come out. All SOOC, who has time to EDIT!!!

In a recent nighttime prayer: TK:
"Please bless that we can be so exciting to make Halloween cookies tomorrow!"
How cute. And how can you stay no to that?

She wants American Girl Doll clothing for Christmas. UM? It costs more than HER clothing! She's improvising. 'Making' her own doll clothes. See?

Presenting LABELS!!!! I am so real now.
Jennifer at Jennifer's Jewels was AWESOME to work with TYVM.

I have this thing about Christmas Cactus. I buy one in every new house/town I move to. It documents my life, cuz it only puts on one leaf at the end of each stem/year.

Cecily R said...

Oh my goodness Carissa! You are BUSY! Good luck with all of that.

Love the pics. Geez your kids are cute (and holy cow, they look like you!!)!!!

Oh, and I love makes me feel a little normal. :)

Kristina P. said...

Love the randomness!

Chris said...

Beautiful pictures of the kids.
And I hope you find time to...uh...well, you know.

Jay @halftime lessons said...

Aww, your kids are beautiful, Miss Crabtree!!

Jocasta said...

Busy, busy, busy

Good luck!

Kelli @ Gohn Crazy said...

Busy busy busy! That's great though (the business part of it at least). Yay for having new tags. Cute!

I love in the cookie picture your daughter making the scary face. Mine is known for making that face OFTEN in pictures. *L*

Mikki said...

Girl, I don't know how you do it!!! You're amazing.
Your kids are SO cute!

Lori of I'm no super Mom said...

Busy Girl!!! I love all your random things!!

Melissa Ann Browning said...

Love the picture of the kids with their cookies -- looks like everyone is thriving in Oregon! TK is particular seems to be changing fast these days -- what a cutie!

And good god, Carissa -- you gotta slow down! 61 orders?!? Time to cap orders for a time, I'd say! Or you're going to have to hire a staff! Anyone know any unemployed seamstresses in the sticks of Oregon?

And ditch the Blissdom article - if it wasn't done by now, then it wasn't captivating enough for you & you should ditch that monkey off your back & move on.

Try & breathe -- make time for your yoga -- you'll feel better!

xo, Melissa

(isn't it hilarious that I'm giving time management advice?!? Ha ha hee he ho... And don't I sound confident in my advice?!? Okay - now ask me why I'm up every nt between 12a-3a?)

Lindsay said...

You really are crazy busy...and there's only two months left until christmas...I'm afraid it's only going to get worse! Hang in there!

scrappysue said...

love those cookies! (and those shots of the kids)

Deb said...

well, the super good news is my sis in law LOVES her bag (yes, she opened it a week early). she was so excited and it made me feel so good (usually i don't put as much thought into gifts)... so thanks again.

i don't suppose you could add a sunday church chat to your "to do" list. i like them, so i can feel okay about not going to "real" church.

Brenda Jean said...

Peeing is ahem...make sure you DO pee.BAHAHAHAHAHA The kids are adorable of course, and I think it's a good thing you all those orders:)

Robin said...

Great pix! The kids are cuuuute!
PS- What's SOOC?

Jaime said...

What a busy little bee you are. Good luck! Getting so popular!:) I love the new little tags. Getting so professional!
Way cute pics of the kiddos.

Jaime said...

And for heaven sakes girl, make time to PEE!

justjuli said...

Sounds like you have a LOT going on!

Good luck! - and great photos. I especially love the halloween cookie prayer. :)

Tiaras and Tantrums said...

great random shots!

CC said...

WE didn't make Halloween cookies this year. Bummer. I love doing that. Glad you got to it!

Cheryl said...

OMG...we made those spooky cookies...and my daughter is making my checkbook disappear with her American Girl clothing list....

Now, as far as the fill in post for me...just write one line. People will really appreciate a SHORT flipping post on my blog. Truly. Something like "I'm filling in today for the DB while she get to have drugs and I barely get to pee. Enough said."

You're awesome...and I'm serious. One line. Or a picture of you smiling AFTER you have some bladder relief.

Jenni Jiggety said...

Soooo busy!

Great have such beautiful kiddos!

Love the labels! I thought of you because one of my girls at school made me a little fabric wallet complete with her own little label! She is a future Carissa for sure!

jill jill bo bill said...

I want to order, but I don't want to push you over the edge. maybe I will get one after Christmas. Your kids are beautiful!!!!

Ann said...

Hey, I've never heard of a Christmas Cactus.
Is that really real?
(I better go Google)

Kaye Butler said...

For someone who has no time to blog, this is a great post. My daughters make their own AG clothes too. I should put up some pictures.
