Blah Blah Blogging Along

Monday, June 29, 2009


Ick, I am sick. I’ve got a sore throat, sneezing, that itchiness that is in your ear but not really in your ear that you can’t scratch, yep, I have that bad in both ears! Plus I have a raging headache and I even took a nap yesterday! I never nap. I blame the constant rain! Which it is doing again today. I tell you if this is any indication what our winter is going to be like I’m putting in for a transfer down south fast!

Sadie went to the groomer for her first time on Saturday. Since we got her we’ve just been bathing her at home but she’s really shedding and needed her nails cut so I spent the money which I will not do again. She looked great but no better than we do and it’s only $7 for a nail trim so I’ll just do that from now on because it was not worth the almost $60 I spent. But she got a pretty pink bandana and looked adorable in it. Of course I was all over it but Michael and the boys hated it and want no signs that she is a girly dog since she’s a girly dog as it is being a golden. Ridiculous huh? I joke that Michael is insecure in his masculinity because he needs a rugged dog with no pink to be found! LOL! Anyway, she did look cute as a button, here is a photo I took before she ate the bandana!


We went to see Transformers 2 at Chunky’s Saturday night. It was so fun and the movie was awesome. If you don’t know what Chunky’s is, it’s a big movie theater with long tables and reclining seats from Lincoln Continentals where you can order dinner, drinks, dessert and such right there. It’s pretty cool as long as you pick the right seats! We are going to do it more often since everyone had a blast so if you know of any really good family movies out let me know! I of course forgot to take photos and I even had my little P&S in my purse!

Oh and this is a reminder to stop over at Hallie’s blog and donate! There is an amazing list of prizes you can win. Just one warning, don’t go on a Monday if you have a week stomach because she has a Morbid Monday post and the photos are not for the squeamish! LOL! But donating for Taking a Chance on Life fundraiser is worth it!

Not much else going on. I’ll close with a few digi pages I’ve recently done:

The page with the hearts is for my friend Amy in case you were wondering who those people were! :)

Have a great day!

What Kind of Swimsuit am I?

You Are a One Piece Swimsuit

You are a bit conservative and traditional.

And you are not at the beach to put your body on display!

You are a low maintenance person. You like to look good, but you're not vain.

Your taste tends to be sophisticated. You always opt for classy over trashy.

I agree on the conservative and traditional part but the low maintenance I think hubster would disagree! :)

Cards and a Coach Gift

So my good friend Chris is here in town this week and I took the day off yesterday to spend with her. It was crappy and rainy so we didn’t do the usual boating on the lake that we usually do every year so instead we scrapped! I needed to make a coach gift and some cards for teachers and I convinced Chris to make the cards for me while I worked on the album. She’s such a great card maker and I hate making them and I knew she would do so much better than I could. I was right, check these out:

Thanks girlfriend you are da bomb!

And I made a CD album for the coach. I won’t bore you with all 18 pages. It’s pretty simple because it’s for a guy that’s probably never seen a scrapbook so I didn’t go nuts.

And a few of the inside pages:




We are off to a soccer tournament, baseball playoff game and then a party at the Lake with Chris and her family! Busy day! Have a great one!

And yet another quiz...

Your Gift is Imagination

You are constantly dreaming. You are always thinking about what could be.

You love to express yourself in many ways. You have a way with words and tell vivid stories.

You love to be amused. You are good entertaining yourself, and other people find you hilarious.

You're the type of person who finds staying happy easy. There's always fun to be had!

What Taste R U?

You Are Salty

There's something about you that makes the world a better place.

You make life more colorful, more flavorful, and more vibrant.

You get along well with others. You always have something to add.

Without realizing it, people can become very addicted to you.

A Raffle for a Great Cause

A fellow New Englander is looking for donations for a great charity raffle. I am making a recipe box and maybe a piece of jewelry to donate and I thought I’d post here for all my creative friends to check it out in case you feel inclined to donate something yourself. Check it out here and be sure to tell Hallie I sent you.

And I know donating items over the net can be a scary thing but I honestly trust this girl and I also know sort of where she lives too if that makes you feel any better! ;)  So please consider donating something for her raffle!

Thanks so much!

The Zoo

So on the Sweet Shoppe blog this week we were asked to talk about our favorite zoo animal. I’ve got lots because I love animals but the Tiger is my favorite and if it’s white, even better! Every year we visit the same Wild Animal park in York Beach, Maine where we go on vacation and when the white tiger is playing in the water I could stand there all day. But this past year I had the pleasure of going to San Antonio to visit my good friend Amy. We spent a day at the San Antonio Zoo and I found that I could sit and watch these guys all day too if I could

They were so cute. Each time they dove in the water and came back out they would  go over to this one family, I think they thought one of the men had something for them and that one would sit up and beg and almost paw at the guy, it was so adorable!

So while I still love my tigers I am a huge otter fan now too!
