A new addiction?!

Okay, I think I am officially addicted to taking on-line scrapbook classes. www.bigpicturescrapbooking.com , www.nycscraps.com , and now I get an email from my pal, Valerie Salmon, that she and Janna Wilson have teamed up to offer on-lines classes. Woo Hoo, I am so there! The class doesn't even start until June 9th (Samantha's 11th birthday). We're having so much fun and the class hasn't even started yet. They posted a blog roll in the forum and the people taking this class Rocks. I am in awe of soo many of these people. Can't wait for class to start so I can enjoy looking at everyones work. I am so in need of motivation and inspiration and I just know this class is gonna give it to me. I'm taking another on-line class at this very moment and I've been yet to be inspired. I'm a bit disappointed this time.

The ROCKER Wins!!!

It's about time a Rocker wins American Idol, and I'm SOOO glad it's David Cook. This guy is amazing. LOVE his voice. My, My, My. Can't wait to watch (and listen) to his career. I was a big Bo Bice fan, an even bigger Chris Daughtry fan, but I'm an even bigger David Cook fan. Love this guy. Wow. America got it right. Hmmm, I wonder if there will be an even bigger rocker on AI next year?!

Which TV Mom Are You?

Take this test!
You are Roseanne Connor from Roseanne. You've probably got a sarcastic streak, and you may take some pleasure in embarrassing your brood. But ultimately, your kids know that when they really, really, really need to talk about something, you will listen...eventually. Truth is, you tend to see things from their points of view; you just don't like to let them in on that until necessary.
That's your little secret. And while it may not be your style (or fit your schedule) to compulsively whip up a batch of chocolate chip cookies, if your kids want to microwave some popcorn and watch TV with you, there's always room on the couch, and even on your lap.

Apocalyptica Baby!

I am SOOO frickin stoked. I'm going see Apocalyptica tomorrow night (actually Sunday morning) at House of Blues in New Orleans. I have loved these guys for about 12 years. I can't begin to express the emotions their music stirs in me. John has asked me to go see bands at House of Blues before and I've always told him No and that it would have to be someone pretty amazing for me to go there since there's no seating. When he told me Apocalyptica was going I immediately said YES! I honestly can't think of anyone else at the moment that I would stand up all night to see. I sooo can't wait. If you've never heard of them, please check them out. 3 cello players (not sure what happened to the 4th guy) from Finland who frickin' rock.

NSD 2008

Sheila, Michelle, Teri, ME, Rebecca, and Lacey having dinner at Casa Ole Saturday night. One of my favorite things about getting together with friends to crop is the food. I love eating out with my scrapping buddies. Also, I love that Simply Scrappin' is right next door to Fresh Market. I went to Fresh Market for the first time Saturday night and I can't wait to go back to Fresh Market for more of those yummy Almond Pillow cookies. I think I'm the only one actually looking forward to getting an even bigger "Fresh Market Cookie @$$", as Teri likes to call it. Life's too short to not enjoy great food.

I actually completed 2 pages this weekend (Thanks Lacey!). That's 2 pages more than I normally do. I like the way Lacey scraps and I think the next time I crop I'm gonna have to try things her way. Simply Scrappin' had an awesome crew cropping at the store. There were some ladies from Mandeville and Lake Charles that were so much fun. Can't wait to crop with these ladies again. Lacey, Teri, Rebecca, Ali, Leanne, and myself were there representing the local girls. What a fun group. Hopefully everyone had as great a time as I did.

Oh no he didn't?!

Well, that'll teach me to leave my little stinker alone in my scrapbook room for a minute. I walked out my room for just a minute and when I returned, this is what I found. Benjamin in the process of taking all my CTMH and SU stamp sets out of their cases. (The iris carts in the back ground contain my wood block stamps). Gez, like my room isn't messy enough without him dumping out my stamps. What a little mess maker. Like I always say... it's a good thing he's so cute and lovable.
