Another Happy little moment

I just wanted to tell everyone, especially those that support my scrapbook love and habits, that I just made my first ever Design Team (DT!) I am going to be designing from sketches by a fantastic lady named Noella at Creativly Yours Sketches. I can hardly believe it's real. But I do think my LO I did for the DT call was pretty awesome (pictured here!).

I am so excited that I can hardly stand it. Now I will get to actually scrap more with a purpose, or at least I'm hoping for it to inspire me!

So Happy I could cry

I decided to re-join WW online and get my butt in gear. Well this week things went wrong when I got super sick on Tuesday night and haven't worked out the rest of the week. I've been trying to still eat ok but I haven't. Well today was weigh in day and I have already lost my first 5 lbs. This is week 3 for me doing WW again and I'm already feeling so different. I am enjoying my work outs and actually eating fruits and veges willingly and readily. Anyway just wanted to share. Now I guess I'll gain it all back when we go pig out at dinner tonight!

Happy Scrappy Day

Saturday Michelle, Kristy and I went scrapbooking pretty much all day. Not that we don't have fun other times but it just seemed so much more fun than usual! I laughed and realized how lucky I am to have such amazing women in my life, who not only are my relatives but dear friends. I know if it weren't for them I would not be where I am today. I would not love myself for who I am and I would not ever have the encouragement to go on and lose weight and do my scrapbooking etc.
So here's my work I did I hope you enjoy it.
And I love you so much Michelle and Kristy.

Somedays you just remember...

You know I always know I love my husband but somedays you just get hit with a realization. I have an amazing husband. I do not know how or why I am so blessed. He is so supportive of everything I do. He listens when I want to vent. He hugs when I cry. He helps with the kids, he plays with them, he reads to them, he tickles them til they pee! I just love him so much. I know I have often taken him for granted but I am so happy to be with a wonderful, forgiving, understanding man. I am so glad he didn't kick me to the curb every time I made a bad choice. He is just so great. I just felt like I needed to express my love for my dear sweet Bryan today! Next month we will have been married 9 years and I just can't wait to spend all of my eternities with him.
I love you my Pelduo!

My Public Service Announcement...

If you are a Dr.Pepper or Diet Dr. Pepper drinker than I have some good news for you. If you hand't noticed Dr. Pepper is consistently more expensive than other sodas in the store. So we decided we'd try the Wal Mart brand. Dr. Thunder. Ok I wouldn't lie to you but it tastes EXACTLY the same. It is $.87 for a 2 liter vs $1.98 for the real deal! Also they have Twist Up (Sprite, which I actually like better than real Sprite) and root beer etc. So if you are a soda junkie such as myself it's waaaay cheaper!

Oh and check out my scrapbook blog for any scrappers out there.

Scrapbook Site

For the 5 of you who actually look at my blog I just wanted to advertise briefly a little scrapbook site I have created. I am pretty excited about it and would love to have it grow. Honestly it's very small and simple so far. It is not a store just a forum and a place to list photos and talk. It's called Never Been Kissed Scrappers. Why you ask? Well because I am wanting to have a DT call and contests that will allow those who have never been on a DT or just can't seem to win all those popular contests out there a chance. It will look good on a scrapbook resume if you're on a DT and I know there are tons and tons of talented scrappers out there that have never been recognized. Like me! Ok just kidding on that! Please join me on the site and look for the DT call that will be coming up on the Pub Calls Blog soon!

Thanks to all of you have joined us already! Kristy you need to post a pic and some work sistah! And any input from you girl would be appreciated.

Lisa tagged me to post the 4th picture in my 4th folder. Well I just back up'd my pics so I had no clue what that would be. Well it was this pic of Zane. Not the cutest one but really any pic of Zane is adorable in my opinion.

SO Kristy, Michelle, My Dad and Buz open up your picture folders and post on your blog: The 4th picture from your 4th file folder!
