But life gets in the way sometimes.
There aren't enough hours in the day...
Actually I've just been busy and I really haven't felt like blogging. That's more the truth.
Plus I was sick for several days with a nasty stomach virus. Which I don't recommend to anyone. And Danny had a cold. So between the 2 of us we were sick for a little over a week.
We had a make up Valentine's Day this past Friday night and Danny made his awesome Chicken Cordon Bleu! My favorite! It was served with green beans and mashed potatoes and we had brownies for dessert! It was a wonderfully cozy evening!!!
This Saturday night we went out to eat with my friend Rachel and her family at a really good Asian fusion restaurant and then went over to their house to play Wii. It was our first time to play with one of these and it was actually quite fun. I found out that I am quite good at the giant slalom, but that was about it. My balance sucks!!! LOL!!!
I was also part of the crop at ACOT this past weekend. As guest CT this month they asked me to help hostess and I also taught a class. It was really fast moving, but a lot of fun. I just wish I had had more time to scrap myself!!! They published my class as an article on their website and here is link to it: Fringe Flower Fun!
Here's what I created:
Our sandwich includes turkey, salami, swiss cheese, colby jack cheese, red onions, and a special secret sauce (a combo of mayo, horseradish mustard and hot mustard) and then we warmed it up in the toaster oven! Delish! In the afternoon we went looking at open houses with my parents. A favorite past time of ours that we haven't done in quite awhile. Then mom had us over for a dinner of homemade gumbo and cornbread finished off with brownies and ice cream! It was so fun spending the day with my parents and reminded me that we need to do this sort of thing more often.
I received my Magistical Memories new releases this week and WOW! are they awesome! I am in the process of working through some project ideas in my head so it might be next month or so before I have anything to share. But you can see them all here.
And here is one of my latest LO's using their Folk Star chippies!
I also received a fun little package in the mail from My Little Shoebox this week after winning a giveaway on their blog! I am soooo in love with the turtles! (I wonder why?!?) Now I am on the search for the "perfect" photos to scrap with it! Oh, I also went out for the early DT call! Keeping my fingers crossed!!!
Mix it Up is still in full swing with another great challenge posted last Wednesday and another one will be up this Wednesday. Stop by to check them out and if you play along you could win a great prize from Scrapshotz.
Last but not least, I have a toot! I will be having a layout pubbed in the upcoming Memory Makers special Wedding issue!!! My first pub with them and I am so excited!
Hopefully I'll be a better blogger this week!
