Happy Birthday to Me........

We had such a nice weekend at Sea World, San Diego.
We stayed at the Manchester Hyatt right in Seaport Village.
We had a GREAT view of the harbor, and could see the local train…Dylan LOVED that.

We had an adjoining room with our best friends Karyn & Jeff and their kids Ashley & James. The kids had a blast running back and forth.

We had a fabulous dinner on the water in Seaport Village Friday night...It had to have been the BEST barbecue chicken pizza I have ever had.

We went to Sea World on Saturday for the day and had so much fun.
Dylan loved all the animals...His favorites were the Penguins & Shamu of course.
He now has a little Shamu jumping move that he does in the bathtub…..TOO FUNNY

We saw Penguins, Walrus, Whales, Sea Otters, Sharks, and so much more. We went to the tide pool and touched the star fishes, and we fed dolphins...

All in all a GREAT weekend, and so nice to have some Family together time.
Scott really went out of his way to make my Birthday special, and it meant so much to me.

(…and I got to practice with my new Birthday camera....How did I do?)

I found a GREAT new site....Little Dreamer Designs.

They have a Shoppe, Gallery, Freebies, and even a Blog. I just LOVE the colors and styles of the kits in their shop. SO Many versatile kits, and they are all so FUN!

Go check out LITTLE DREAMER DESIGNS, I think you will just LOVE it.
I have it bookmarked, and can forsee spending lots of money there....lol

Some LO's from a few months ago

A few LO's I made of my special little guy....

Using the ULTIMATE Creator's kits of course.....HEATHER ROSELLI

Wednesday, June 20, 2007


I scrapped this LO using Heather Roselli's CUTE kit called "On The Playground".
I just LOVE all of Heather's stuff and have bought several of her kits.
I downloaded her freebie for a CT challenge and didn't quite make it in time.
I am still proud of it. I think I may be adding a bit to it, but wanted to post it so far.

I think I am getting a LITTLE bit better.....I wish I had more time. I have the first two years of Dylan's life to scrap, not to mention me and hubby's SEVERAL years together.
I am really enjoying this, and would LOVE to get all caught up and scrap as I go....

OH YES!!!!! I almost forgot to tell you all my VERY exciting news....
Hubby bought me my Nikon D40 digital camera with 18-135 mm zoom lens for my Birthday!
I can't wait to play!!!!

So on Tuesday the 19th, I turn.......THIRTY.

lol...It is no big deal, not at all what I imagined at twenty.
Back then, when I was young, single, and "finding my way" thirty seemed SO OLD.

Eeee gads.

Well, maybe it is marriage, or being a Mommy that matures a woman. It certainly has me.

I don't FEEL old, and I certainly do not enter this milestone with trepidation.


I keep getting peeple with comments like...."oooh your turning 30"...
Yes, yes I am....Bring it on, I say! lol

Happy early Birthday to ME...he he

There's GOOD News and BAD News.....

This boy is TOO MUCH!!!!

This is what my Son said to me the night before last....

Dylan - "Mommy, theres good news and bad news".

Me - "Hmmm (holding in a laugh) OK, What is the Good news?"

Dylan - "Ummmmmm HAPPY!"

Me - "Ok, what is the bad news?"

Dylan - "Sad!"

Ok, if your not cracking up right now, then you don't know that my Son has JUST turned TWO. I cannot believe the range of language this child has. He is cracking me up on a constant basis. He is so very smart. He sings his ABC's, he counts all the way up to 14 sometimes a few more.... He knows all his shapes, colors, and every characters name in the Disney movie CARS. (His very first movie theater experience when it came out last year). I feel like we have normal conversations half the time...lol

I am so proud of him.

Another FREEBIE Just Because.....

Thank you very much to the nice ladies who have left me such kind comments.
It sure makes a heart feel good. I DO wish that EVERYONE who picked up our freebies would drop a line and say hi at least, but what can you do? THANKS to those that do! It means alot.

So, I was a success with my first freebie and had so much fun making it, I gave it another go....

Here is my Spotty Alpha. Enjoy!

I created this using the lovely papers from ShabbyPrincess in their Sweet Sprinkles set. I just think the colors are wonderful, and THANK YOU Shabby Princess for the use. Please visit Shabby Princess, I think you'll really LOVE it! They have SO MANY wonderful things.

I would also like to thank Anita Designs for the use of the beautiful flower sticker I used on my preview. Please stop by Nana's Attic. It is one of my favorite stops.

Thanks once again for making me feel so welcome to the Blog and Digital Scrapping worlds....

Personal Trainer........

I am nervous. I have my FIRST session with my new personal trainer tonight.
I am looking forward to it, but am apprehensive at the same time. I think it will go well.
I will let you all know how it goes.
