Almost A New Year...

Well, its December 30th and 2009 is almost over. It has been quite a year for me. I am very excited to see what 2010 has in store though...hopefully great memories, rewarding experiences, and lots of family and friend time! So happy to have gotten in touch with my dad's side of the family via Facebook this Christmas, now maybe we can keep updated more often. Here's wishing everyone a safe, healthy and happy NEW YEAR!

I am a winner!

I guess that sounds really snobby, but what I mean is, I won the giveaway over on KP's (the talented Kelly Purkey's) blog! I am sooooo EXCITED! When I told my hubby (as he passed by my messy craft room), he say's "Great, more scrap crap to add to your piles of scrap crap!" LOL he just doesn't understand....hehe. Now I promised I would pay it forward, so I think I am going to clean out my stuff and donate some goodies to City of Hope. Hope everyone is enjoying their week! Thanks Kelly!

Big Brother11, Senior pictures, and Chinatown

So BB11 started last fav time of the yr! I already like Lydia (tattoo girl), and Kevin but cannot stand Laura and Natalie! Comment and let me know who you like!

Today, I am doing the first of many things to come as the parent of a "Senior". Jasmine is taking her Senior pictures for the yearbook! I am really really sad that this chapter of my daughter's life is coming to a close. It is too soon! I remember being the youngest mom at the Kindergarten gate waiting to pick her up from the First Day of school :0(
Going to have a Girl's Day with my friends on Sunday, any restaurant suggestions in Chinatown (LA)????

Sewing, Bakerella, and Renegade Craft Fair

Tonight was sewing class number three! My pretty little apron is coming right along! I  love sewing! I also got a new Stampin Up! customer today, so excited...she seems super nice! BUTTTTT the thing that really made my day was over on Bakerella's web site...a really nice US Marine wrote to her with a wish for his girlfriend, it was so lovely...please go read the post it will touch your heart. Last thing...if you live near LA...go check out the Renegade Craft Fair this coming weekend...ALL handmade gives me the warm fuzzies thinking about it! 

Nighty, Night!

Nothing too exciting today. Vic and I went to the Ice House in Pasadena with the in-laws to celebrate my BIL's birthday. Pretty funny. Today is my dad's anniversary. Happy Anniversary daddy even though I know you won't see this. Hope it was a great one. That's all for now...sleepy.

Day 2....

Ok so it's day two of the can I survive not eating junkfood plan and it is getting harder, no lie! I didn't get to do my walking today but hopefully will tomorrow. I did stick to the eating plan pretty well though. Getting my 3 meals a day! I am super excited for the 4th of July, we have a great day of festivities here in La Verne that we go to. First a great pancake breakfast (which I might have to skip, due to calories), then the parade which my youngest will be in with his cub scout den, then on to the country fair and last but definitely the best part...the fireworks/live band in the BHS stadium with friends! Can't wait! I also can't wait till the 11th, not only is it my 17th Anniversary but it is also the Renegade Craft Show here in Los Angeles! My friend Jackie and I are! Now to leave you with something beautiful, check out this link:

My lovely sister Katie got married 12 days ago and this is a slide show of the wedding. 
Simply.Beautiful. Love her.

Working Out...

Ok so today, I started working out with a trainer. I got up at 5:45am to meet her at 6. I think that was the hardest part...well no, not really, but I hate waking up early! She took all my measurements (yes, it was painful to learn I could probably keel over at anytime) and then I did the treadmill and some weight training. All in all it was great. My energy level after I left was way better than it normally is and I felt good. Now, I just gotta learn how to not eat cheese and ice cream and bagels and all the stuff i really like. Really. Like. Anyone know any great low cal recipes???? I. Need. Help.
