Look Up

Did you see my new header at the top of my blog?!  Isn't it totally cool?  My wonderful and very talented hubby designed it for me!  With a little of my help too.  I Love it!  Thank you to him for being patient with me and helping to make a cool design!

Good things to reflect on

Ali did this on her blog the other day. She got it from the Simple Woman's Day Book. Today Cathy Z decided to copy the sentence starters and fill out her answers also. Well, if two of my fav scrappers are doing it, I'm gonna do it too!

I'm filling it out at work right now. I think my answers would be different if I was at home.

Outside my window... It is really hot and I am glad I have air conditioning!

I am thinking... I would rather be scrapping or golfing, instead of working.

I am thankful for... my husband.

From the kitchen... tonight we might grill steaks. With that I will probably have some vegies.

I am wearing... my work shirt and slacks.

I am creating... in my head right now. I am always thinking about some sort of project etc.

I am going... to scrap this weekend because hubby is playing golf with some buddies.

I am reading... Jillian Michael's Master your Metabolism and also Scrapbooks Etc. mag.

I am hoping... that it cools off a little outside over the next few days! It is really hot and humid right now.

I am hearing... the radio playing. I always have it on in the background.

Around the house... there are the usual things that need to be done! It never ends!

One of my favorite things... foot rubs from my hubby!

A few plans for the rest of the week... work of course and hopefully get in some golf. And hopefully scrap on Saturday!

Well, that's a little look at me today. This would make good journaling for a layout. I'll post it when I get it done.

My new toy

For my birthday my in-laws gave me a gift card to Hobby Lobby. Thank you again! I used it to get myself a Bind it All and some accessories! And, I love it! The bind it all is a cute little machine that punches holes in paper/chipboard/etc. and then you insert the wires and it clamps them down. Then you have a wire bound beautiful little book or whatever you created!! It's awesome! I thought it would be hard to use but it really isn't. I really enjoy making mini albums and this will help me to make them even neater! I can use this for a lot of my scrapping stuff. Plus, I think there will be other uses too. Denny can maybe even use it for some of his jobs. Pretty awesome! Check it out!

February LO

Here is my Feb. page for my monthly album. I have had it done for a week or so, but just got it up here. Let's see, it's already the second week of June and I just finished Feb. Not doing too good, by Christmas, I might be done with June's! Thanks for peeking and let me know what you think!

Scrappy stuff to check out

Here are a couple of sites that I am visiting regularly.  Please check them out.

This site offers a lot of great business information and insight in the scrapping world.  She also just revamped her site and it's looking good!

A lot of the staff members from Simple Scrapbooks mag. have started a new website together.  They are hoping to carry on the Simple philosophy and inspire people to create.  I am excited to see them start this new venture.  I can't wait to see what they come up with. 

I'm going to leave you with those two sites for today.  They are definitely worth checking out and worth following in my opinion! Have a good Thursday!

Random Blabbing

I've been doing a terrible job of keeping up this blog!  My hubby told me he stopped by the other day and I was like, oh the blog with nothing new on it!  So, that kind of made me decide I should throw up a post or two.  
No new scrapping stuff to show.  With the nice weather lately, I haven't done much.  Plus, we have been a little busy.  Hopefully one of these days I can catch up a little!  If I don't I'm going to be so far behind!  
This past weekend was my birthday!  Hubby and I spent a wonderful day out and about on Saturday.  I picked what I wanted to do.  We went for a drive to the river.  We went to Pikes Peak park and hiked the trail there.  Then we had a picnic.  I have never actually went on a picnic before.  It was lots of fun!  Except for the bugs!  LOL!  Then we walked around Prairie Du Chien and McGregor a little.  Visited Cabella's and ate at Prairie Pizza.  We also spent some time sitting on the bank of the river and just enjoyed the nice day and watched people and the boats.  Then to finish off the night we went to the casino.  We didn't do too great but it was fun!  Like I said, it was really a wonderful and fun day!  Sunday was actually my b-day and we had lunch at his parents' home.  Stacey's family joined us.  I want to say thanks to everyone for the b-day gifts you gave me!!  Super awesome!  I am very excited!  It was  very nice of everyone.  Then after lunch, of course, we went golfing!  Can't have a b-day without including golf!  All in all, it was one of the best weekends ever!  : )
Well, for now I think that's enough blabbing.  I really need to post more often.  Hopefully I can remember!  LOL!
