A couple more projects to share and another Fashion No No

Ok first off I know I am no Heidi Klum but I like to think I have some idea of what looks nice on myself. Lately I have noticed another fashion NO NO (remember my Skinny jeans gripe). I HATE seeing women walk around in shoes that are TOO BIG! I do not want to see you walking in a pair of high heels that you have to clomp around in so that they stay on your feet! It just makes you look stupid. So PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE buy a pair of shoes that FIT for crying out loud! You are not 3 years old anymore playing in mommy shoes. Geez! WHew! Ok Now that I got that off my chest here are a couple more projects that I have completed in the last week or so. First off let me say I do not really like scrapping Halloween. But My kit at Mon Ame was filled with Halloween goodness this month.

LO using Making Memories and Cosmo Cricket

And a Halloween card using Cosmo scraps

Tonight we are headed to BJ's Brewery to celebrate Jeff's Bday and his Aunt's Bday. Have a great day everyone

Skinny Jeans Tip of the Day!

How about you just don't wear them unless you are built like Kate Moss! I guess not feeling well has me feeling a little testy eh? Seriously though... I really do not like this trend. Only about 1% of women can really pull this look off. And Women like me who have some hips are just $hit out of luck. Don't even get me started on GUYS wearing skinny jeans. Ick! Maybe I should just start pegging my jeans again and wearing double socks! LOL

I'm Here!!

Ok sorry about being MIA. The conference for my sorority is now over. Everything went well. But now I have a cold. Been out of work the last 2 days. I dragged my butt back in to work today. I wanted to share with you guys a fun crop this weekend.

Jamie's first day of Preschool

This girl has been dying all summer to go back to school. She was very disappointed this morning when she found out she does not have school tomorrow LOL. She couldn't wait to wear her new outfit. She proudly stated that she thought her teachers would think she looked cute in her new outfit LOL. She is such a poser. I swear I did not tell her to stand like that LOL.

Well off to a busy weekend. Jeffrey has his first soccer game tomorrow afternoon. Then I have a sorority meeting Sunday evening. Have a great weekend everyone!

Happy Anniversary!! To Me!!

Jeff and I are celebrating 9 years of marriage today. I cannot believe how fast time flies.

So if any of you are interested (or not) I am gonna tell you our little love story LOL. I met Jeff 12 years ago when I was 18. Yes I know I was young. He started working for the phone company out here the same time as my mom did. All I knew is that he was fresh out of college and drove a porsche. Come on what teenage girl ins't going to be wishing for a date? LOL. Now you are probably thinking that my mom set us up? Nope not my mom. Another lady that worked with him knew that my mom had a daughter and that Jeff was single. SO she orchestrated the whole thing. He called me that same week (with mom's permission of course) We talked for hours. Our parents hated it because we lived far enough away from each other that the 3 hour phone calls were long distance! By our third date he brought me to his grandmothers 70th birthday party. LOL Not your typically date. I loved that his family was such an important part of his life. We have been together ever since. Now I am not saying we have a perfect marriage by any means. I mean does anyone really have a "perfect" marriage? We have found what works for us. That's all I can ask for. Love you Jeff.

Here is a pic from our wedding. Geez we were so young!

And this is us about a month ago

Happy Thursday everyone!

Happy Wednesday and New Contest @Crop Addict

Halfway thru the week already. Helps it was a short week for me at work anyways. Did you NKOTB fans get your CD yesterday? I did. Woke up extra early before work so that I would have enough time to download and burn it before I had to leave. Have you seen their new video ?? --> SINGLE Hot Damn! No laughing at me!! I like feeling like I am 13 again LOL.

Ok on to Contest Info. We are having a Dreamstreet LO Contest at Crop Addict Come on over and enter. The winner will receive some Dreamstreet goodies. Here are a couple projects that I made with yummy Dreamstreet papers

On another note. I just got done reading the rough draft of Midnight Sun. I am so sad that right now SM does not plan to finish this story. I hope that one day maybe she will change her mind. I loved reading from Edwards perspective. To whomever made the horrible choice to publish online the rough draft thank you for damaging the magic that is Twilight. Millions of fans are now going to be heartbroken because of your error in judgement.

Ok enough of that I am gonna go watch my boys again ^^^^ :)
