Ok I've been Tagged! My buddy Laura got me!

The rules are : List 5 weird things about yourself or your pets. Tag 5 friends and list them. Then, those people need to write on their blogs about 5 weird things, and state the rules, and tag 5 more people. Don't forget to let the people you tag know by posting a comment on their blog!

1. I must have a flavored creamer with my coffee every morning. I'll even run to the store in the morning if I am out.
2. I must have ice in my drink. I'd rather go without if I can't have ice.
3. The bed must be made every day (or I try really hard to have at least that done!)
4. I'd rather drive 10 miles farther to get it on sale or use a coupon than pay full price right in front of me.
5. I will drive an hour to go to a scrapbook store to get that one special item I HAVE to have today!

So.. I am tagging my dear friends.. Ally, Tab, Wendy, and two new friends..
Kim, and Yvette both from the My Daugthers Wish Message Board!

So its Sunday morning, before anyone in my house is awake, I have a perfect cup of coffee in front of me and all is well with the world. So many things, great things, happening for me. I took a chance and went into one of my local scrapbook stores, My Daughters Wish and talked to Sheri about the job opening she had. I brought in my "book" and probably 10 projects. She was so nice to me and really liked my stuff! I can't tell you how nice it is to hear from someone who is not your close friends or family tell you that your work is good. She was very happy to have me come work there and asked if I would like to teach also.. Would I like to TEACH? Um.. YES! So, I am going to start working with her on teaching at MDW. This is exactly what I needed in my life right now. I am also going to be teaching make and takes at the upcoming Scrapbook Expo in Sacramento. I am so excited for this opportunity.

I also want to send a prayer to my sister Nadia who right now has been running in a 100 mile marathon for 25 hours straight.. yes you read right 100 miles, 31 hours to complete the race.. and at last night at about 8pm, she was at mile 50 2.5 hours ahead of schedule.. SHE ROCKS! What an inspiration she is!

Here is a random layout that I picked for today.

Happy Tuesday everyone! I am starting the process of selling our house, and wow is it stressful. We aren't one of the lucky ones that is going to make money off the sale of our house. We have only been here two years, and we will be lucky to get out even. The realtor just left and she found all these things, I didn't get clean and took apart our house. Then the bombshell on how much the houses in our development are going for.. not much.. So, we are going to have to do a bunch of work on the house to try to sell it without a loss. The good thing is that we are moving.. to a better neighborhood, with a good school district. Its amazing what we will do for our children right? I would walk to the ends of the earth and work until I collapsed just to provide a good home for my children. It puts things in perspective and you realize that it the long run, it will be a great thing we are doing. But the next 9 months are going to be hard on us. I have so many things to do. But for now, I am going to work on something creative for my honey for his birthday. It will make me feel better, once my hands are dirty and my craft table is a mess again. Here is a page I did at a great store crop at Young Play Memories. Its a fantastic store, which I would frequent if I lived closer. Its another oldie of me and my mom when we lived in Hawaii, I am about 3 years old. Have a great day everyone!

Wow, I can't believe how long its been. Life happens so fast these days.. I have been so busy, but I am still taking the time to be creative and see my friends. I am on an "old" picture kick. I have taken a bunch of my old slides from when I was a child and putting them on disk and printing them for scrapping! I found this old picture of my mom pregnant with me. I LOVE this picture! She made all her clothes back then, and Bianca and I agree that we wish we had this dress/outfit for us today. She is so fashionable and just darling. I promise to add more scans of recent pages I have done. Much love to all!
