Get Older, Not Fatter

Yikes, yikes, yikes! My fairly healthy husband had to go to the hospital for chest pain yesterday! He left work and went to the hospital where they kept him overnight. After an EKG and a stress test they say he's fine. Phew! What a relief! He's maybe 30 lbs overweight but nothing major, kwim? It's still worrisome. :(

While I was waiting with him I read an article in Newsweek about a 60-something year old man who had vowed to get older but not fatter. He said that he couldn't control getting older but could decide he wasn't going to walk around looking like he was about to deliver a basketball.

I just thought it was pretty interesting reading. At the moment I believe I'm doing both...but maybe I should do something about one of them :)

The One With An Open Letter

Dear female coworkers,

Recently the bathrooms were repainted and it was requested that you stop flushing the toilets with your feet because it leaves footprints on the walls.




I pondered over this while I used the facilities the other day, running over the logistics in my head.

Enter stall.

Put down seat cover.

Tinkle and don't sprinkle.

Flush toilet with your shoe.

Open locking mechanism on the door with your shoe.

Oh can't do that.

Go to sinks, turn on water with your shoe.

Right, can't do that either.

But now, those of us with opposable thumbs who have flushed the toilet, opened the door, and turned on the water with our HANDS all have germs that you would normally find on said inanimate objects PLUS whatever is lurking on the bottom of your shoes.


It's called common sense. Pick some up at Target.

The New Girl.

The One With A First For Everything

I've been scrapping over 3 years and I did something for the first time recently. I forgot about a layout. I had forgotten the password to my main photobucket for a month or so :p and had been using my backup account. I went to my main account the other day and remembered my password. Inside there was this layout. I barely even remembered doing it, and I couldn't even remember what kit I used. But I finally figured it out...Pieces of You by Shawna Clingerman. My poor little layout!

I did this one the other night too, using Wild at Heart by Julie Billingsley. Cutest. Kit. Ever!

Anywhoo I guess that's all from me for today. Toodles!

The One With The Hostage

Help! My camera is holding my photos hostage! :P
I can't find my little converter thing that came with my Rebel, and I can't find the cord either *sigh*
I hate moving!

My poor little photos just sitting there, trapped on my camera. For shame! I think there's a chance Tabatha has a USB that will fit the cord part so I'll go up later and try to fish my photos off. Right now I don't have time because I have another job interview this morning. I also have another tomorrow afternoon, wish me luck! :D

I'll share with you, instead of photos, this layout of Naomi's fear of ladybugs or "daydaygugs" as she calls them. She tells us all the time that "daydaygugs care me".

The One With Lots and Lots of Flowers :)

We created a lot of flowers for you this week. CU flowers, and some cute personal use ones to pretty up your layout with! Enjoy, friends! Click HERE to see them and all of our dollar deals!

Did you have a good Easter? Ours was fun. But we had some interesting highlights. On the way to taking Nathan to Ohio he got ill, and so did Naomi. The stomach bug sure has great timing. Or maybe they were just carsick. Who knows? They both seem fine today. :shrug:

I'll be back tomorrow to share some photos and layouts with you...Toodles!

The One With Custom Shirts!

I stumbled across an Etsy seller that makes custom shirts using wool and material scraps on cotton shirts. I told you guys about her after I bought a hedgehog shirt for Naomi last fall. I loved having a shirt for her that was different than the norm, so I comissioned Melissa to make some shirts for Parker. The boy really loves food, and really loves my laptop, so we brainstormed and came up with these shirts for him that really lets him wear his two loves on his sleeve (well, his chest ;) )

I wanted to share them with you because I think they are utterly adorable!

I'm outta here for today, I have to make a run to Lexington for babyproofing supplies. Some of the less common items that I need will only be available at babies r us so it's a trip to the city for us :) The new place is nice and all, but until it is 100% babyproofed I won't be able to have a real moment to sit down with 2 kids 2 and under :)

Toodles :)

The One With A Personal Note...

I hardly post personal notes here any more. I'm going to try and get better about that...because I know my family doesn't care that much about our sales and new products from Bella Gypsy :P

So this morning I am headed off to a minor outpatient surgery and I'll be down and out the rest of the day. Wouldn't it figure too, because it's supposed to be 71 today!

I finally did a layout! I know, I know, what do I want, a gold star? I hadn't done a layout in over 3 weeks and it felt really good to scrap :)

I have to get outta here! Toodles!!
