|My Rose Parade Rose|
Wow.....we are already into February 2011....where did January go? I can't believe that I didn't post about this earlier. Every year I say I am going to go to the Rose Parade...but we never do....so this year I decided I was going no matter what.....the trouble was I was really tired New Years Eve and the thought of getting up at the crack of dawn to go to the parade was just too much so we did the next best thing....we went up and looked at the floats on display....TRULY AMAZING!!! I have tons of photos that I will have to share at some point. The end of January brought some changes to our house. Jason passed his drives test AND got a new job. So now I am occasionally stuck without a car while he is at school. It's so quiet around here today....I am so not use to this. Mind you I am enjoying it but it sure is different. =)
I have been working on a scrapbook for hire so I don't have a lot of my own layouts to post. Tho I have managed to sneek in a few here and there. I also missed going to CHA this year as I didn't ask for the time off from work soon enough....and while I have the time and could have "called out" for work I just didn't feel like that was the right thing to do so I stalked peoples blogs who were there and watched videos and such and lived vicariously thru those who were there instead. Next year it will be in Anaheim so it will be more
I had a nice "conversation" with Jeremy yesterday via text....for some reason I have been really missing him the last few days....probably cuz I ran out of my hormones...lol He and Holly are doing great in AZ. Holly is working hard to finish up her last semester at ASU and Jeremy is working. We will be going out for her graduation so that is certainly something to look forward to.
Jason and I have been working on moving more and eating less.....trying to get some weight off of both of us....so far he has lost about 14 pounds and I have lost 7....it's hard but worth it. We have also been watching the Biggest Loser....these people are doing an amazing job...the show is certainly motivational...granted it's drama...it's a reality show and of couse they are going for the ratings but what these people are accomplishing is amazing.....we sit here and cheer them on every week....silly perhaps but if it keeps us motivated then I'm all for it.
I am really excited to take Teresa Collins class at Scrapbook Daisies in Long Beach on Feb. 19th. I love all things Teresa Collins lately. She has such beautiful and fun product.....maybe it's because she is just such a nice person...don't know but anyway I am going to make a beautiful book that maybe way too pink and girlie for my boys but I am hoping I will be able to make it work. =)
Guess I will close with a few layouts I have done lately....Enjoy everyone.
