Happy Birthday Kristi!

It' s a wonderful and beautiful lady's birthday tomorrow. Kristi and I met thorough the Junkitz site when we both used to stalk the DT's blogs. Well she was actually friends with Kendra IRL so I was the only stalker but that's another story. I had the pleasure of meeting Kristi IRL last October during our girls weekend in Kansas City which I have blogged about in previous posts. I even got to room with her and she is so much fun.
So Happy Birthday Kristi, may you have many many more and a fabulous day today! I am a slacker so I didn't make a fun little album or post unflattering photos like Sue did!

New Wheels!

I got me some new wheels today! We decided that it was a good time to trade in the H3 since the mileage wasn’t too high and it was still in great condition. Plus I was worried they won’t be making these anymore after 2009 so I just had to convince Michael. Well when we got a letter in the mail saying they were desperate for 2006 H3 trades and were willing to give me 120% of Market Value plus 0% financing we headed right down to the Hummer Dealership to make a deal. And a deal we got! My payment will not increase and now I’m driving around in this:


Oh and I scrapped a bit this morning as well:

Happy Friday!

I'm so glad there is only one more day of work! It's been a long week! I'm looking forward to a very quite weekend of scrapping! It's supposed to rain tomorrow so I'm going to hide in my scraproom. Both boys are gone, Jake is spending another week in Maine and Josh is going to his Nana's house so it's just Michael and I. Michael has lots of projects he is working on so I'm gonna let him! LOL!

I got some fun stuff in from 2 Peas yesterday that I can't wait to use! Although I should know better than to order things online because you really can't tell and if you don't read descriptions you may not know that these are actually huge!

And on top of that I accidently ordered 2 sets! It's been awhile since I ordered anything online so I guess I wasn't paying attention to the final checkout page! It's OK, I've got plenty of scrappy friends to send one too!

Anyway, I'm sure I'll be back this weekend with more layouts to share! Have a great weekend!

I scrapped and scrapped

So hubster and the boys went to Maine for the weekend to drop Jake off for 2 weeks ack! And what did I do? I holed myself up in my scraproom the whole time! Here’s what I made:

The recipe box & matching cards are for the Taking a Chance on Life Raffle a fellow blog friend is doing that I mentioned a couple of weeks ago. She’s got some amazing prizes donated.

Go check out the prize list here:

and then make a donation while you are there!

I also did lots of laundry, did some weeding, planted some flowers, and took the dog on a few walks. It was such a quite and relaxing weekend. I loved it!

Celebrity Collage by MyHeritage

So there was a little challenge over at SSD to post our Celebrity look a like. No one has ever said I look like a celebrity so I used an online generator. I seriously don't see one resemblance but I'll take a few of them anyway! LOL!

and of course fireworks. I really need to work on this part! I had my ISO at 100, used a tripod, was in BULB mode on the camera but the shutter speed was off:


Happy Friday all! Have a fabulous weekend!

How’s Your Weather?

It finally feels like summer here in NH. In the past month we have had about 25 days of rain and it’s been awful. All of my flowers are waterlogged and dead and my summer glow is seriously lacking! But today it’s 79 degrees and bright blue skies and is supposed to stay that way this weekend so I’m hoping to be outside for some of it!

I hope you are enjoying your weather where ever you are!!

You are easy to be around and never offend everyone. You're quite mild.

You have a warm demeanor, and many people find you to be inviting.
