Here and There

Geez, I can't seem to keep the blog flow. My job switched over to a new system, so this is the first time I have been able to successfully log on at work. Not sure why it works now, but it does. I have been taking photos for my photo a day, but the photos haven't been everyday. I realized taht my life is a bit of a routine on soem days. I know, I know look for the beauty in your everyday, but pictures of my work space, my girls practicing cheer routines and my husband and I eating dinner can get a little mundane.

We went to see Beowolf in 3D this weekend. It was good. I wouldn't suggest seeing it in a regular theatre, you may focus on the plot holes. But in 3D it is worth the extra ticket price and the two hours of sitting. The graphics are amazing. We also went to a new restaurant called Wapango. It is latin fusion cooking. Whatever that means. They have build your own Mojito happy hour, which was well worth it :-)

I also downloaded the trial version of Elements 6.0 The demo video showed some amazing things you can do with it. I haven't played with it yet, but I can't wait for Thanksgiving break to try it out. If you have it, what are your thoughts????

Hopefully, I can add my pics later today. I do have some to add, I promise :-)

Football Fever

My photo of the day reminds me of Football, Fall, and Snacks......what could be better ?????
:-) I didn't watch the game until after I got married. I decided it was better to learn the game then be a football widow. Now I am as passionate about it as Rob. We bet weekly on the games, which makes it even more exciting. The loser has to cook an extra meal that week, so believe me when I say it gets intense. Currently we are tied. The Cowboys better win tonight :-)

My fave Spot

My photo of the day is of my sofa. I actually wasn't extra lazy today though. I went to the gym this morning, dropped off some kit boxes at the PO, fixed Rob some dip from scratch for his football game, and cleaned all the bathrooms. And I planto wash clothes today. Yet, this sofa makes pic of the day because it is where I had my mid Saturday nap. Nothing like curling up on the sofa for a two hour nap. I haven't been able to do that in over a month because I have been so busy on the weekends. Today I revisted my time honored tradition and it felt good :-) Real GOOD :-)
Side Note: Elizabeth Dillow's new book Scrapbooker's Almanac came out today. If you have it, let me know what you think of it. I have a 30% off coupon to Archiver's I am itching to use.

Back to Blogging :-)

A few weeks ago I decided I needed to live a healthier life, so I started eating better. Then I got a flyer in the mail from Curves offering a 21 day fitness study for free. God is good. I signed up and have been going for a week and a half now. I really do feel good when I go there. It takes exactly 30 minutes, the ladies are friendly, the facilities are clean, the women are real and there is no pressure... just encouragement to do your best. Hopefully, I can keep up and I can see some real results at the end. I even got one of my co workers who lives near me to sign up, so we will be going at it together. Here's to a sexier me :-)

Something Creative: I decided that since I can't really scrap (everythings packed because we are selling the house) that I needed to do something else creative. I need my outlet. So I am going to dust my baby off (haven't used it in months) and I am going to take a picture a day for 21 days or for the next month and maybe create a mini album at the end. I gotta use up some of the products left from the sale and I think this would be a good way to do that. Anybody wanna join me??? No commitment, just post your pics each day or at the end of the week, jot down a note or two and create at the end.

p.s. I will post my pics as soon as I figure out where they are hiding on my computer...has it been that long :-)

Found Them!!!!

Nov 1st (no pic) so here is the last pic I took with the camera

Nov 2nd (pic of the for sale sign in our yard) This is me today because we got our first offer on the home. Unfortunately, the offer was 25 thousand under our asking price and they wanted our fridge and for us to be out by the end of the month. Maybe I should have taken a pic of me laughing because that's what I did when Rob told me. No more comment on that.

Toodles :-)
