Another Weiner!

I want to say thanks to everyone that hung out with us this weekend at the Gal. The winner of my RAK of MME Bloom and Grow is Kimbo! She does some AWESOME work, you should check her out!

In other news, I am a bit worried about Samoa. I don't directly know anyone from there, but My sister-in-law now has some family there. Her step-sister just married a Samoan and his family all lives there. I don't know them, have never met them. But I know Alisa's step dad. If you pray, please pray that their family is ok. An 8.0 is a pretty damn big earthquake. And 3 to 4 waves is a lot of devastation. Tuna packing is the main industry there and the tuna canneries have closed now, not due to damage but I'm guessing out of health concerns. This will be devastating for the island. No jobs, no money, no money no food, no way to fix what they lost. So find a charity and DONATE. Check out to get an idea of what charities pass on the most money and which are valid to begin with.

It's a good day, I have no complaints. My dark cloud is hopefully lifting. Things here are going well. Slowly, but well. Time to hop up and clean the kitchen before supper. I'm the worst housekeeper ever! Here's a new card I whipped up.

Pink Ninja? I want to be one when I grow up!

So I found this SUPER cute challenge blog. It's called "the pink ninjas". I NEED this place. Maybe one day they will let me GDT or even DT. One can dream right? Ok. So this week's promt is to scrap your addictions. And my current addiction (one of many) is Gyros. There is a place off Youree drive called Yeero-Yeero. They make a damn good Gyro. So I have been sneaking over there a couple days a week for one. MMMMMMmmmmm. I havbe some leftover Anthem by Sassafras I am trying to use up since I just ordered a bunch of the monster and oh crap, I don't remember the other one. Not marmalade. But anyway, I have new stuff coming so I am using up the old. So here it is. As a small aside, I didn't have another "o" for addiction, so I used a stash of the ... that AC puts 3 million of in each package and I never use them!

Paper, journalins sticker and heart sticker- Sassafras
Flower- Prima
Alphas and ribbon- American Crafts Thickers
Small alpha stickers- MLS
Pop dots- ZVA
Cardstock- Bazill
Other- Vellum

Hope you will join me this weekend at for one of our FABULOUS crops. Grab your favorite "mommy" beverage and get going. Anyone who completes one of my challenges (one today and one tomorrow) will be entered to win a MME goody, which I will post about soon! Like tonight or tomorrow. So head over and take a peek!

Hambly Lovin'

Just a quick post. I have had this Hambly transparancy for over a year now. I bought it because I love chandeliers. I had no idea what to do with it. It's too big to use on a page and I didn't want to cut it to use like half of it. So in my shelves it sat. Until Monday. Our new house has the kind of windows with faux panes. I really like the look, but don't love the obstructed view. So while staring out the window instead of scrapping, I got the brilliant idea to see if the transparancy fit. And it did!!! So I cut around it to get rid of the extra clear part leaving mostly just the black design, added a glue dot to the top and middle under the design so they didn't show, and up it went in the top middle square. Now when I am staring off in space, at least I have something pretty to look at, besides out jungle of a front yard!

A Sunday Without Football is a Good sunday!

Luke is working nights this week, which means he will have to leave the house before 12:30. And this means NO FOOTBALL today for me! Last weekend, we had free NFL Sunday ticket on Directv. So we watched football or football related shows for about 8 hours. I am SO over it! It was nice to get to watch the Seattle game, other wise I just don't care!

I am unpacking and organizing my scrap room, what a nightmare that is. All the boxes are in different rooms, go movers! And they punched 2 holes in my white Ikea bookcase. You bet your butt they will be paying to replace that. I am not a happy camper. But it is nice to sift through boxes and find things I forgot I had. Projects I did and love, embellies I don't remember even buying! So it's a bit like Christmas. Lots of stuff to pull out of boxes, but then you have to put it all away!

Napoleon is getting bigger and bigger. That makes me sad. I really wanted a very small puppy. He was! He just isn't now. So I guess he won't be my purse puppy afterall. I am hoping he stays small enough to be portable, that is why I got him afterall! He is such a sweet guy! I love him to pieces. He sleeps on my shoulder, bites my toes, and poops everywhere. We are working on house breaking, but it's slow going. If I take him out every hour or two, he is great. He still has accidents once in a while. But if I get busy and forget, well all bets are off! he loves playing with Budrow, which is a blessing. Budrow is HUGE and so submissive and dumb! But he lets the puppy chew on his ears and tails and even crawl in his MOUTH! Yep, it's crazy. Budrow will lay with his mouth open and Napoleon will climb halfway in there and bite his cheeks and stuff. It's so funny!

I am off to unpack more. Maybe even scrap a little. Here is a picture I took of Napoleon last week. He's such a handsome pup!

Guess where I will be next weekend! If you don't hang at the gal, you should! We have so much fun at crops (and pretty much all the time). There will be lots of prizes and challenges and fun. So make sure you put us on your calendar!

In other news, we are still not unpacked! I know, I am a bad housewife. Luke has been off the past 3 days and I have been spending time with him running around the countryside. It's so nice to spend quality time with the man you love. Without distractions, without kids, without chores. I realize how much I miss him! He works so much and we don't get much alone time.

I saw swamps! And a heron. And swamps. It was cool! It was the Louisiana I was expecting but hadn't really seen yet. We are so close to the texas border, I can spit in one state and have it land in another. We are about 400 yards from Texas and it's not the typical picture of swampy muck I had in my head. I guess that's a good thing.

Guess I don't really have much else going on right now, I have been scrapping a bit. I did this layout about my FAVORITE food in the WORLD, Pineapple! It's for the Fave things blog. This page makes me happy.

I will be getting scrappy this week while the kids are in school. I need to take breaks from packing right? Today is laundry day so i don't know what i will get done! I just ordered a TON of new stuff from and can't wait till it gets here! See ya soon, I promise I won't be blogging so far apart. And stay tuned, I will be posting some blog candy soon!

I'm a loser baby...

Insert Beck here. I know it's been a long time, but we are moved in to the new house, not unpacked. Not organized. I'm going nuts! So much STUFF just keeps popping in and taking over. I did manage to take some pics of Julia the other day, here is one I love.

But I will blog more soon. battery isn't holding out on me and I am tired. Givee me a break, I'm almost as old as Jamie! (love ya girl!)
