If this is a sign of the year to come...

...than I am SOOOO not looking forward to this year!!!
Where did THAT come from... you may ask... Oh man! Let me tell you!!

Last week DH and i celebrated 9 years of marriage... YAY! We always get away alone for the weekend, so this year was no exception. We had a weekend planned to get away, having to take the baby with us of course, whick was ok, he's suck a good baby! Anyway, all week last week we had sick kids!! DD started with a horrible cold! Stayed home from school a day and everything. Then Middle DS gets a fever, and ends up throwing up all over his bed in the night! Nice... The next day oldest DS gets sick and joins the others!! This is now Thursday and i'm ready to say forget about the weekend... but by Friday morning, things are looking better and so we decide to go.
Friday evening DH and I go and do some shopping alone... he to a auto shop, and me to the second hand store... (I'm obsessed with this!!) We meet at 8:30PM, grab donairs and garlic fingers to take back to the hotel with us and veg for the evening. We talked, ate and enjoyed some TV... went to bed at a decent time.
Next morning I get up and thought... this donair isn't sitting well... Let me just say the rest of the weekend went down the drain from there!!! DH and I BOTH ended up sick for the entire weekend!!! He slept on the couch all weekend and I in the big king sized bed!! Ugh.... I can't even say we spent the entire weekend in bed together! hehehe!!
We were SO disappointed! The baby was as good as gold thankfully... and we managed to survive... but what a let down the weekend was! Waste of $ and time... I was so disappointed not to have had any time together to just bond and have fun, ya know?

Then, we get to pick up the kids, and ALL THREE of them have also been sick for the weekend!! So I come home to a house full of sick kids... now the baby is sick also... DH took 2 days off of work and still isn't feeling right! AGH!!!! I'm ready to dig a hold and jump in!! ;)

AND yesterday was DH's birthday... poor guy! I didn't make him a cake or anything, cause he wouldn't have eaten it... His big birthday supper was chicken noodle soup! :( We will celebrate this weekend if everyone is feeling better!!

So... if this next year of marriage continues like it began... it's going to be a rough ride! LOL!!! But... in sickness and in health... together thru it all! :)

Thanks for dropping by! Hope the flu doesn't catch you while you're here! :) Y'all come back now, ya hear?

RAK winner ,LO and stuff!

i want to congradulate Tessah!! You win the Earth Day RAK!!! I have your address, so be on the lookout for some scrappy mail!!

Secondly, here is the page i created for the MAM NSD crop! We each designed a class, and they were all awesome! Mine was on stamping! I'm not... let me rephrase... WAS not a big stamper. But after doing this LO and this class, I fell in love with stamps!! I think I'll be investing in more, AND using the ones i have!! I used an older Basic Grey collection for this page... a CHRISTMAS collection at that! LOL! But I LOVE this line! To check out the class, go here!

Other stuff... i think I'm evolving as a scrapper... I'm starting to find my style... for now! I think I will always enjoy doing simple LO's with lots of white space... but lately I've been LOVING the distressing! I will never be a vintage scrapper, but I really enjoy the aged look... I don't think I'll ever stick to one particular style! I love trying new things way too much! :)

Thanks for visiting! I'll be posting the May kir for Scrapbook Sussies and the work I did with them soon too!! It was SUCH a fun kit!! As always! So, until then... Happy Scrapping!
