Spitting Nails....

You know, the kind that you hammer into the wall. Have you ever been so mad at someone, that you could just shoot the negative words out like you were using a nail gun? Spewing them everywhere in every direction? That's how I feel right now, but I'm not gonna let that negativity get to me. I'm gonna have my yummy Panda Express dinner and enjoy my little piece of heaven on earth {Venti Peppermint Mocha Frappacino}. Then I'm gonna watch a little TV, and then I'm gonna scrap. I'm gonna scrap that anger away! Maybe then, after my vacation, I can deal with it in a more positive manner. See you all later!

Oh What Fun!

I had such a great time today! I was so fortunate to reconnect with another friend today! It's amazing to think of how long we've lost touch for. It wasn't an intentional out of touch thing either. It just happened. Life got busy, we were in different spots in our lives and time just slipped away. It's really been 8 years since we've gotten together. It was so great to see her today too. Things just really picked up right where they left off. We chatted incessantly about what's been going on in our lives. We got to meet eachothers new baby. Mine at 15 months old, and hers at 3 months old! I felt really bad for the waiter, because it took us forever to order. We'd start looking at the menu, and then get back to chatting. I'm so happy now!!

Wow! This has been a busy week for me! CrAzY Busy! It all started with a birthday party for Josh to attend last Saturday, and it's been non stop since 10am that day! I've been so blessed this week, to start reconnecting with old friends.

Before G and I met, I had a couple of friends, that I used to go out with constantly. If it was a Friday or Saturday night, we were together, going out to parties, clubs, dinners, you name it, we did it! Well, after G and I started down the path to marriage, I wasn't hitting the single scene anymore, and we kind of lost touch. Well, recently one of these friends got married, and moved very close to where G and I live now. She, out of the blue emailed me and invited me to their housewarming/houseblessing party. What a wonderful day! She met my new little one, and I got to meet her new hubby! We didn't get to chat much, but are definately planning on not losing touch this time! Next, my little sister from my Sorority Alpha Phi, contacted me by email the other day. We'll be planning a get together in the near future. Tomorrow, I'm meeting up with another friend that I haven't seen in quite a long time. She just had her first baby last December, so we're gonna meet for lunch and introduce our little ones! What fun!

We're getting ready to head out for a mini vacation with G's family soon. I'm looking forward to getting out of town for a little bit, and relaxing and taking some photos!

I'll let ya'll know how lunch goes tomorrow! I'm really looking forward to it!

Back to Scrapping!

So, things have been very busy around here. I'm not quite sure exactly what I've been busy with, other than chasing little J around. Every day, he is more and more on the go. I've finally gotten a little bit of mojo and been able to find the time to scrap a little. It's been so fun to try using the stuff in my stash. There are so many new things out there that I want, but with all this stuff already sitting in my room, it's hard to justify it. So, I'm back to my challenge. USE THE STASH! I've been really trying to do things that are different for me in scrapping as well. It's been lots of fun!

We've got a lot going on in the next few weeks! We've got a birthday party to attend, a housewarming/house blessing, and lunch with a friend I've been out of touch with for awhile...who just had her first baby a few months ago! We're also getting ready for a little vacation on the Oregon coast. Should be lots of fun times ahead! I can't wait to take some great photos on the beach! Also, on the way up, there is a tulip festival that we're going to stop at. I LOVE TULIPS! I can already picture the perfect layouts! Have a great day everyone!

Just a Quick Hello!

Everything has been crazy busy around here lately for one reason or another. I just wanted to send a quick hello to all my blogger buddies, before I run out to do some errands. One errand includes trying to find a sheet of sherbert bazzill paper. I was so inspired to do a layout last night, I got to working on it, and I splotched my ink pad on the sheet of paper, where I can't hide it! And, of course it was my last sheet of that color....go figure. Anyway, I'll post it as soon as I get it done! I can't wait!

In other notes, just wanted to send prayers out to the CHP officer involved in the accident pictured above. He was on the center median waiting to make a u-turn on the highway when a Snapple truck plowed into him doing 60mph. He is so lucky to have survived! And I'd like to add a PSA... when you see an officer pulled off on the side of the road, kindly move over a lane to give space and make it safer for the officer and any others that are on the side of the road. It's acutally a law in 38 out of 50 states! I know it wouldn't have made a difference in this accident, but just thought I'd take the opportunity to throw that out there! I'll post more later tonight!

Take Care!
