Yes, I’m at it again folks! Sorry for such a long break, but I’m sure this video will explain… (more…)
Yep, you haven’t heard much from me in several weeks because I got one heck of a nasty cold! Yes sir, Mr. Nasty Germ paid me a visit. (more…)
Sorry I have been MIA again. We have been dealing with a little problem in our kitchen. Our dishwasher decided to leak under our laminate flooring! OMG! We tore out (or rather my son tore out) our flooridng until we reached “dry” planks. As you can see, there really wasn’t much of our dining area that didn’t get flooded either.
After New Years in Vegas, our next stop was on to Los Angeles, California!
The first stop on our agenda was to go to Santee Alley. It is a wonderful shopping district in LA! Great place to get cheap merchandise! My son bought a couple of suits along with shirts, ties, belt, socks.
I found myself a few nice things, too. Including this fantastic purse and wallet! Love it!
We then went to Angel Stadium to take in the Monster Energy Moto Cross. It was being shot live for Fox Sports! It was quite cold…the stadium was open-air. But a cup of hot chocolate helped warm me up a bit.
We enjoyed the afternoon so much! Gorgeous day! Several people were playing instruments and singing. It was also fun watching all the birds hover around the people trying to fish.
Now…on to the final portion of the holiday, which was what I was waiting for by the way. Prima Art Venture!
So stay tuned for my next post…
Finally….I’m posting how my trip went to the USA over New Years. We left on Boxing Day, headed to Las Vegas. Yep, we drove all the way from Alberta, Canada! It’s just too expensive to fly 3 of us down there. And besides….then you have to pack all your purchases back with you on the plane. Much easier when you can load up a car!
On the way to Vegas, I got to meet Scrappin Madge! We have know each other for a while now, but just online. We finally got to meet in person! She’s such a great gal! We met across from where they filmed a lot of the original Footloose movie! Actually they filmed most of Footloose in the town of Lehi, Utah. I had no idea! That was one of my favorite childhood movies! Exciting!
When we got to Vegas, we got front row tickets to see the magic and comedy of Adam London! It was really good! He was very funny, and did some magic tricks with cards here and there. It was fantastic! If you get a chance to see one of his shows, definitely do!

Oh My! Jen, I hope that bad things do only come in threes for your sake sweetie! Hoping to see you crafting again soon! Miranda – BL
Well, it’s Halloween and all the spooky little goblins are out tonight! My hubby handed candy out this year (put a mark on the wall). I got to work on bookkeeping! Oh, the joy of it all. My son was out trick-or-treating with a girl friend (not girlfriend–not yet, he’s my baby!). He had a lot of fun. My hubby and I went to my sorority Halloween party last night. It was the first costume party we have been to since…..since…hmmmmm…high school??? Anyway, hopefully I can get a hold of some pics to put up soon. We had a great time! We did a mummy wrap for our activity/contest. It was so funny watching them! They had to get into groups and pick someone to wrap. The first team to wrap their person completely, won. I was dressed up as a witch, and my husband was dressed as a fairy!
It looks as though November is going to be a somewhat busy month. Lots of great things going on. I will be taking a road trip to Helena soon with a sorority sister. We are going to have so much fun shopping! All I can say is…scrapbooking stores!!! Yippee!!! I’ll also be visiting a friend of mine this week. Hi Joanne! Then I have a Women In Business retreat to go to. My son will be singing and playing guitar in another concert coming up in a week. Also, I’ll be going to see a play with a bunch of my sorority sisters! That’s always a lot of fun. We’ll be gathering to have dinner before the show, too. Then at the end of the month….Scrapbooking Retreat!!! Yes, you heard right! Three awesome days of doing nothing but scrapbooking! Is that heaven or what! Can’t wait!
What a wonderful day I had today. At work, seeing I wasn’t going to be there the next day on my birthday, the boss and his wife bought me a lovely travel pack of lotions. They even brought in a chocolate cake to celebrate! That really made my day!
After work I headed to Calgary to meetup with my hubby and son at the hotel. When I finally arrived in Calgary at the hotel I was so tired. I fell asleep while my son and hubby went out for supper.
What a nice surprise when they got back. They brought me back a futo maki roll from the sushi restaurant. Yummmmmmm! So good!
Well, sleep time. I have a big day tomorrow!
Well, it’s almost the weekend again! Yay! I just received my swap items back yesterday. I participated in a swap with CanadianScrapperGirl on myscraproom.ning.com. It was an image swap with tags. What beautiful tags I received! And included was a little Thank You gift from CanadianScrapperGirl–a stick pin and shoe charm! I’ll have to do a YouTube video on them tonight so everyone can see how awesome they are! I can’t wait to use them! Sorry, I get so excited over the simplest things.
I crafted with Heidi last night. That was a lot of fun! I continued working on my backpack mini album that I’m auctioning off at the next sorority meeting as I watched Heidi’s creations. I got to meet several new ladies on the chat. Hi Terrie and Angela! We are now officialy (I think) the Gothamettes! We had to think of something. We are such Heidi groupies already! LOL! Now we need some t-shirts! Anyway, that’s what I’ve been up to. Hopefully I can continue on tonight with my mini. I don’t have a lot of time left to finish it.
