File Folders

I have a file folder at work that is labeled: "My Issues"! That just made me laugh a little today! I probably need one of those at home as well!

Hope you are having a great Thursday. :)

I'm a total 10 Year Old!

So on Friday after work I was talking to my best friend asking her what her plans were for the weekend. Well she mentioned that her husband was really wanting to go see High School Musical 3: Senior Year. She asked if I wanted to come since she knew Sam wasn't here this weekend. I said, "Ummm...yeah! I didn't know any of my friends would want to go see it so I was just going to go alone sometime!" So tonight...we went to see this....

I just have to say that Zac Efron is totally worth seeing this movie! He's my new celebrity crush. There were many times in this movie where he was very sweaty! :)

Don't worry...I just looked up on imdb and he did just turn 21. So it's only a 6.5 year diference!

And did you know that the average age of everyone in our theater was probably about 10? I don't think there was one high schooler there. What is up with that?! I would give the movie 3 out of 5 stars...it was a little cheesy...just like the first 2 but of course the dancing and singing was great!


Friday's 10 - This Weekend!

Hey everyone...I'm bringing back the Friday's 10! So here goes...

#1 - My hubby left me today. He's headed to AZ to help clean out and pack up his grandparent's house. They used to winter in AZ where it's WARM! But Grandpa passed away just a few weeks ago and they weren't planning on heading back there this year anyway. So part of the family is down there this week to help out and my hubby and his brother are the lucky ones that get to drive the moving truck back to Kansas! So I'm alone all weekend. Drive safely boys!

#2 - Tonight I'm scrapbooking at church. I'm very excited to get to see my girls there and meet a few new people too! I think we will have a good group tonight! I'm still trying to decide what I want to work on tonight...probably finish up my clear album. I will let you know how it goes!

#3 - Tomorrow morning I'm heading to Archiver's with a few freinds to scrapbook all day! Well atleast from 9:30am until 4pm!!! I'm very excited about this. Yeah! I haven't seen Becky in ages and I miss hanging out with her! If anyone wants to join us...just let me know. It's free to crop during the day there! (Except the stuff that you are enticed to buy is not free but I will live!)

#4 - After scrapping on Saturday I'm heading accross the street to DSW to see if I can find some new shoes! I feel like I need something new! And my flip flops just won't work in the snow! Ha Ha!

#5 - Saturday night I'm looking forward to catching up on my shows that I didn't get to watch last night. I know, I know...I missed the best night of TV! The Office AND Grey's Anatomy. So don't tell me what happens!

#6 - Then Sunday I will be heading to church at 9am and hopefully my best freind and her hubby will want to have lunch with me that day! I'm calling her after work to see if they want to.

#7 - THEN (I have an action packed weekend planned)...I will be heading to a Holiday Mart that is being held in KC. I'm excited to look around and try some good food!

#8 - Then hopefully my hubby will be home on Sunday evening. But if not, I plan to curl up and take a nap then wake up to watch Desperate Housewives and maybe The Notebook. (I saw Nights in Rondathe last night. It was good but not nearly as good as The Notebook was. So I'm thinking I need to watch it again!)

#9 - I might also find some time to organize my scrapbook room OR clean our bedroom OR list stuff on Ebay OR clean the bathrooms OR make sure that all scrapbooking stuff is downstairs...it seems to invade the house all the time! So you see...I have tons of options that will take me well into next week!

#10 - I'm headed to Panera right now to have a salad and some potato soup for lunch. YUM!


Regional Projects

Hey everyone. I just realized that I never really posted the projects that we made at regionals. So here they are!

This is a little pocket thingy...don't really know what to call it.
It holds a few cards and some envelopes.
Look how cute these cards are! I love that little birdie!
Then we got to use the Big Shot to make this cute little basket! Isn't it just adorable?
This is a little pouch. Very cute!
Cute little card. We used ribbon to make the flower. So cute!
I didn't really like this set when I first saw it. But this card is kinda cute. Did you know that you could watercolor with craft ink? That what we did with the Old Olive on this card!
And the final make n take was this 8x8 scrapbook page. There are a lot of elements that go into the bottom portion of the page. Very cute!
So there you have it finally. If you have any questions...ask away!



This card was on Kristina's blog yesterday and I just think it's so cute! So your challenge is to create a card using a clear transparency sheet as a base. I have always wanted to make of of these and just have never gotten around to it.

So send me your cards that you create by Friday and I will post them on my blog! Hope you have a great weekend.

Goals for the Year

So...as some of your may remember I posted in the beginning of the year that I was going to make sure the crawl space was cleaned out by the end of the year! I am proud to say that I have achieved my goal! I have been working on it for over a month now...sorting, throwing stuff away, deciding what to keep,...it seemed like a never ending task but this weekend, I worked for a total of about 10 hours over Saturday and Sunday and FINISHED the project. I should take a picture so you all know how great it looks.

Hubby still has a few boxes to go through to remember what is meaningful to him and hopefully that will be done by the end of the year and we can call the project totally complete!

And another thing that I mentioned was that I was not going to buy a purse all year. While this task as been hard, I have achieved it so far! But I'm thinking in January I should go buy one! What do you all think?


It's a Girl!

Here she is...still trying to decide on a name for our little one! There are so many things to do now! Just wanted to let you know the good news!
