#1 - Leave work in 45 minutes and go home to pack up my scrapbooking stuff! YEAH! I'm going to crop with my church buds tonight. It should be a fun time! I haven't scrapbooked with them in 2 months! I will miss you Jinny! I will also be creating a card for my challenge that I posted in my last blog entry!
#2 - Drive by Sonic on my way to church...I will need a Diet Cherry Limeade for this event that will last until midnight! (I wish I still drank caffeine! Darn!)
#3 - Clean up the clutter around the house on Saturday! It's seriously a pit! Hope to get up and get going on that in the morning hours.
#4 - Watch my netflix movie, Georgia Rule. I'm excited about it!
#5 - While I watch my movie I will be updating and buying music for my iPod!
#6 - Catch up on all of the TV that I have missed watching this week due to our new obession with playing RockBand!
#7 - Practice my mad drummin skillz on RockBand!
#8 - Going to the drive-in on Saturday night to see Wall-E and Kung Fu Panda. Kinda excited...I can't lie!!!
#9 - Watching the little kiddos in the nursery on Sunday morning after we attend service. Gotta love those little 1 year olds!
#10 - Make a cake for my Father-in-law's Birthday/Father's Day celebration on Sunday afternoon. Can't wait to go swimming in their pool!
So what are you doing this weekend?
Now on to the STAMPING CHALLENGE!! Your next challenge is to create a card or scrapbook page that must:
*Contain stars and stripes.
*Use a tool that you haven't brought out in a while (or that is new to you)
*Use ribbon or twine
You will have until the end of the day on Sunday night to send me your creations. Just a reminder that there are no colors mentioned so don't think that you have to use red, white, and blue just because I said stars and stripes!
Then on Saturday night I scrapbooked at my house with Colette and Margie! It as so much fun. I started our cruise scrapbook. I got this really cute patch and adhesive ribbon and appied it to the front of the album. It turned out really cute!
Here is a close up!
And here is Chloe. She is more likely to stand still for me long enough to snap a great picture but I just love the lighting on this one! The sun was still shinning bright after the storm and she paused before going down the deck stairs. Isn't she cute?!
I have noticed that I have posted anything crafty for a LONG time! But you are in luck because today my freinds are coming over to scrapbook with me. I should have a few things to post tomorrow! So come back and see what we have created!
Right now I have to go clean my craft room so that we have a space to scrapbook tonight! HA! I will post before and after pics of that as well! Hope you have a great day!
#4 - My sister is bringing "27 Dresses". I've seen it but can't wait to watch it again!
#5 - One of my family's favorite roaptrip snacks is Twizzlers! YUM!
#6 - I have had this book sitting on my shelf for a long time waiting to be read. So when I'm not watching movies, I will hopefully be reading this!
#7 - I just got the new issue of Creating Keepsakes this week! I'm sure my mom and I will be looking at that and talking scrapbooking sometime on the trip!
#8 - When my sister and I were younger my mom used to plan a new activity in the car for every hour that we had to drive. So on the top of the hour there was always something new and entertaining. It could be a snack or a new toy. Well...one time when going to Colorado, she pulled out some pipe cleaners. We must have played with those for hours! Those were a favorite. So to remember those fun time, we bought some to play with in the back seat!
#10 - And the new issue of Fitness has been waiting to be read for a while now too! (Yes, I have entirely too many mag subscriptions but I ask for most of them for gifts and then get others from kids of the people that I work with...funraisers!)
#1 - I am very glad that it's so nice outside these days. Today to work I am wearing capris and flip flops! I love that! And when I go home and get ready to head to my in-laws for dinner I will put on a tank top! YEAH!
#2 - The wind has been too much this year! I don't remember it being nearly as windy as it has been in Kansas these past few months. We have had to stake every one of our little trees down because they have either (a) fallen over OR (b) looked like they were going to fall over. We planted them about a year ago and I just feel so sorry for them. They are just trying to survive!
#3 - I wish I was on Deck 10 of the Vision of the Seas, laying in the sun!
#4 - Who wishes that Lisa would have been kicked off of Top Chef instead of Antonia. I can't believe that Lisa was so rude and said to the other two contestants, "I know that Antonia was your freind and everything but it would be nice of you both to congratulate me for making it to the finals." Ummmm...HELLO! I liked how Richard put it in his private interview, "Ummm...congrats on getting the bronze medal and coming in 3rd?" News flash Lisa...Stephanie and Richard beat you, you should be congratulating THEM! But who cares...one of them will win anyway!
#5 - Only 2 hours left of work today. I'm leaving at 4:30. I have to get out to the in-laws to swim and make smores before it rains! YES!
#6 - Speaking of smores...my healthy lifestyle begins again on Monday! On the cruise I gained 4 pounds! But it was totally worth it. I have lost all of that since being home but I need to get back to the gym so it doesn't come creeping back! You just eat so much on a cruise! There are points when I was like, "I'm not even hungry but this looks so good." I think I said that once right before I ate Keylime Pie! YUM!
#7 - Speaking of healthy lifestyle...I regret to inform you that I will no longer (or very rarely will) be drinking Diet Coke as of Monday, 6/9. Cutting pop out of my diet will help me to lose another few pounds very quickly and it's not great to have all of those chemicals in there anyway. So it will be water for me! Lots of Crystal light probably! I'm going to limit to one a week right now or maybe I can go cold turkey! This will be hard. Support will be needed!
#8 - When I got home from vacation I had about 20 stamp sets to cut out for customers! I still have 3 waiting for me to cut out before Sunday morning and one of them is an alphabet set! The things that I do for my customers that I love!!! My hand hurts! (just kidding)
#9 - I have had the most unproductive week every at work. I think I'm still in vacation mode. Atleast today I did manage to get a report sent to a customer. I need to get my butt in gear! Hopefully Monday will be a new beginning!
#10 - I'm excited about next weekend. My family: Mom, Dad, Sister, Husband, and me, will be heading to IL for my cousins wedding. We will be riding in one car...to conserve gas. We will be leaving early on Saturday morning and will drive up there, spend the night, and return on Sunday. It should be FUN! There is already talk about DVDs, games, snacks! WOO HOO!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Can't wait to stamp with you soon!
#1 - This picture of Sam and I was taken as the ship was leaving the port in LA. It was a self portrait with my SLR. I don't just hand it to anyone to take our picture. I kinda scope out if there is someone else who also has an SLR so that I know they will have respect for my camera! Anyone else do that?
#3 - I think that this was the first sun set that we caught on the ship. We were headed to dinner and I spotted this on deck 5 and just had to step out to take a few pictures. I love how it looks like the sun is just resting on top of the clouds!
#4 - Sam was the photographer on this one. This was on the second day, our first full day at sea! We were just exploring in the morning before we decided on what we wanted to do and Sam stopped to take this very good picture of myself! I love the color of the picture! Everything is so bright and crisp!
#5 - This picture is of Land's End in Cabo San Lucas. This was on Day 3 of the cruise. These rock formations were formed by the water and this arch is a big highlight in Cabo. The water around these rocks and the lighting just makes me love this picture so much! The water seems to be about 4 different shades of blue and green all blended together. Love it!
#6 - This picture was taken on Day 5 in Peurto Vallerta. This guy offered to take a picture of us and he wasn't actually in the ocean with us so I let him use the camera to capture this great picture. At the end of our excursion we got to visit a beach and swim a little. This is as far as I got in but Sam had fun swimming a little.
#7 - This is another picture from Day 5 on the beach. That is Sam in the bottom of the picture. I just love the ocean, the sun, the man...everything about it!
#8 - On Day 6 (an at Sea day) we left the theater on the way to another activity right before dinner when I saw the sun setting in the distance and I just had to stop and take in that moment. It was much better than attending "Battle of the Sexes" anyway!
#9 - I had fun playing with the setting on my camera to get just the right lighting as the sun was setting and taking that light away from me. I love this picture...mostly because that is my hot husband...but for other reasons too. I like how the image is soft around the edges but sharp when it comes to his suit.
#10 - This was also on Day 6 while watching the sun set. I love the levels of color! So great!
