What I couldn’t give up

It’s a blog starter from the sweet shoppe.

The one thing that I have tried and tried to give up is Diet Coke or Diet Pepsi.  Either one is good for me.  I like to change it up.  I used to only drink Diet Coke. But now it’s both. I can’t stand Diet Dr. Pepper or Diet Mountain Dew.  (The Diet Mountain Dew yucks came from drinking it during pregnancy, the weirdest craving EVER! and it was the caffeine free kind!) Now my preference is fully leaded soda but if I’m desperate and thirsty then decaffeinated will do.

The problem is that I want to give it up. It’s really expensive! And it isn’t good for me. I have cut back but not nearly enough!

Some layouts and just about my day….

Juno who is a designer at Elemental Scraps asked me to join her creative team! I’m very honored because I didn’t apply for a call, she just asked! Look at this pretty kit:


and this is what I did with it:


I used a template from Connie Prince.  I really like her templates for my 8x8 pages.  They really feature the photos! (I print in 8x8 so white space layouts can make the pictures appear really small.)

I’ve been scrapping again. Feels nice to have so many layouts done! Some are older layouts that I haven’t posted on this blog.

It’s Dollar Day at ES! I picked up these items because I NEVER have enough digi stash. LOL!!!

And I purchased some stuff from Sweet Shoppe on Saturday.  They had a clearance and new releases that I couldn’t resist!

I went to physical therapy again today. I see two therapists.  One who is helping with strength training and then another who does adjustments. But they aren’t like pop-your-back adjustments.  It feels more like I’m being twisted into a pretzel! It is making me feel better so it is worth the pain during the pretzel twist.

And later this afternoon I’m heading out for a yoga class.  I’m hoping it will help strengthen my hip and my back.  I hate classes though because I feel so uncoordinated. And my range of motion is currently limited until I get stronger.  I’ll just stay in the back of the class. LOL!

Hopefully it won’t be too much longer before I post again! I want to post the picture of the Easter Eggs my kiddos made yesterday. They are soooo cute. And we’re going to be eating egg salad and deviled eggs all week. ;)

Easter Quiz


You Are an Easter Egg

You're so sweet, you don't need candy. You much prefer the taste of artificial coloring instead.


I am sweet. ;) But I do NEED candy. Especially those Cadbury Cream Eggs! Oh and the malted eggs and Peeps. I think a trip to the store is in order!

Easter Stash

I’ve been scrapping!  Some of it has been CT and some of it was just from stuff that’s been sitting in my stash.

I have so many more Easter kits in my stash! Fortunately, I have a few more years of Easter Pictures that haven’t been scrapped.

So if you are inspired, create an Easter Layout or two using some of those pastel kits in your stash.

In my next post will be some of my CT layouts. :)

My 5 favorite TV Shows

I've been challenged to blog about 5 shows that I've seen every episode. So here it goes.

1. The NEW Doctor Who. Not the ones from the 70's and 80's. Although those are available on Netflix so if I want to be really geeky, I could watch them. So I loved the 9th Doctor and thought it couldn't get any better until the 10th Doctor came along!!! And now he's leaving the show. I don't know much about the new Doctor. But here's a picture from the show.

2. HOUSE!!!! I've seen every single episode. I love that show. Although I'm not really sure why. LOL
3. 24: OK I'm not current on the past two seasons but that's because I watch this with DH and he prefers to wait for it to be out on DVD so we don't have to deal with commercials on the DVR.
4. Lost: Same as 24. I'm up-to-date on what's out on DVD.
5. Battle Star Gallactica: It's over. :( But I've seen every single episode of the show. I plan to watch the spin off that will start this fall.
