so i have felt extremely lucky so far this fall/winter season..and the reason is because it hasnt snowed in the valley. now, typically, and i mean in the last 15 years i've lived here there has always been at least one snow storm by halloween. but not this year. nope. not a flake on my sidewalk. heck..some weekends it was 60 degrees. but today, today that was all over! ugh. dont get me wrong..i think snow is gorgeous but i hate walking in it..i hate driving in it. but mostly i hate walking in it. specially if i'm wearing heels. which just so happened to be the case today. and yep. i'm a clumsy gal...so of course i step on to the porch and slip. granted..i didnt fall. thank goodness for the screen door! lol.

no scrappy news from my neck of the woods..havent really had much time to scrap this last week with the holiday..and then the girls were sick. poop! and then when they started feeling better art and i started getting sick. figures, doesnt it? lol
so tomorrow is my last day of work till next week..and then i'm getting my scrap on!!

here is a meme i saw that looked like fun::
ten presents youre planning on buying
1. chocolate (duh)
2. perfume
3.cinderella something
4.snow white something
5.video games
6.lip gloss
8.gift cards

yo peoples! this is officially the last day of my first week of work!! woo hoo me! lol. i could tell that i was looking forward to a day off because i didnt want to get out of bed lol. actually, i think that had less to do with work and more to do with the fact that it was freezing this morning!! i guess i can't complain too much tho because it hasnt even snowed yet this year--at least in the valley anyways.

dont have much to update on..cuz i've been working..but tomorrow i plan to get my scrap on cuz i got my scrapologie kit in the mail on monday!! i keep taking everything out and fondling the papers and the chipboard lol. i sound like a paper pervert hehe. ooh, and i got one of the supplements--pink city, cuz i really wanted some of that k&co twinkle type. and man. they werent kidding that it was super super glittery!! but i love it. i cant deny it. and i got me some 7gypsies portfolios to alter. i think thats what my mom will be getting for xmas..but ssssh!! dont tell her ;)

yesterday there was a meme on the pub that looked like fun, its like a fill in the blank type thinger..so here it is:

eight. on a Monday morning, you can find me begging olivia to get out of bed!
nine. my favorite food ingredient is dont know if i have a favorite..besides pepper lol. but i do use a lot of cream of chicken.
ten. my eyes are what ppl say are my best asset.
eleven. my favorite material possession is my wedding ring
twelve. to relax, I like to light some candles and turn on some slow jams..like barry white, sarah mclachlen, sade..just whatever
thirteen. the town I live in is uber conservative
fourteen. my worst habit is interrupting ppl when they are talking
fifteen. my guilty pleasure is ben and jerrys new york super fudge chunk

just relaxing

so i'm starting my xmas gifts/projects...i'm a little late starting them i think...we shall see if i can get them done!
i headed out to the AMM warehouse sale yesterday afternoon expecting huge long lines but i got lucky and was in and out in 30mins! here's what i got::
*tote-ally cool tote $10
*8x8 calendars $2.50
*rub ons $1
*couture ribbons $1
*couture composies $1

now, i went there soley for the calendars (xmas gifts) and the tote. cuz i really really really have been wanting the tote for a long time. so i got one and i'm happy. and i got the calendars. i just dont know why i had to get any of the other stuff..besides the fact that it was cheap! lol. i just dont have any self control at all!! lol.
so last night me and my friend decided it was time for a ladies night...
we head out to a local club/bar to shake our groove thangs. and i'm feeling pretty good ya know..looking forward to having some fun.
so we get there, they charge us an arm and leg to get in..and turns out
it was MILPH night lol. um..that stands for MOMS I WANT TO PHOTOGRAPH. lol. so these chicks did this calendar thingy..and all
the proceeds are going to the local womens shelter--which is awesome.
but these chicks..man. they looked tore up from the floor up! i mean, they all had implants(i'm so not exaggerating) and i dont have a problem with ppl having those at all. what i have a problem with is chicks with boobs hanging out all over--i mean they leave nothing to the imagination! the thing that i was thinking was sad is that they girls had amazing bodies..but their faces..oy. looked like they had been around the block a few too many times lol.. and the guys there were just freakin falling all over them. it was nasty to watch. lol.
anyways it was a good time..even with the milphs. lol.

now i'm just sitting here trying to relax and enjoy my last day as a sahm. tomorrow i start my part time job and i'm really excited. not really nervous because i used to work there so i know the ropes and all. i'm worried that i'm going to miss my kids. which is funny because at this very moment that i'm typing this...they are driving me batty! lol. ahh..motherhood!

yesterday i worked on some lo's for the calendars..but i havent scanned them. so i will leave ya with some lo's that i did with the scrapologie last month that i never got to post!

i figured since its been a month since i updated that it was time that i update lol.

um lets see...i havent wanted to update because (1) i dont know if anyone reads this thing cuz i dont get many comments and (2) theres not been much going on in my little world as of late..but heres a tiny bit of what has been happening::

*i took about a month of scrappin hiatus. my mojo flew the coop. however, its now back..and i'm out of printer ink. go figure.

*art doesnt have to work nights until january! woo hoo. now, this probably doesnt seem like a big deal..but for the last 4 years he's been groggy at/on our annivesary,thanksgiving,mayas birthday and xmas. so yes, this is good news!!

*i just got a part time job---starts on monday and i can't wait! i'm mucho excited to pay some bills..and oh yea..get some scrappin goodness!!

*i was asked to be a guest designer at a newer scrapbook/paper company..so keep your eyes peeled for that later ;)

so yep...thats pretty much the last month of my life in a nutshell. pretty damn boring if you ask me..but hey..its my life, i can call it boring :)

here are some recent scrappings::
