A Date?!

Yes, a date! Tomorrow, PJ ( my DH) and I are going on a double date with his brother and brother's wife. We're going to go to dinner and then go have a couple of drinks. The last time we went out was to our friend's wedding. I asked my SIL if we had to get all spiffy and she said that she wanted to take us to a nice place for drinks. I'm actually going to get dressed up! If you knew me, you'd know that I don't dress up. My MIL offered to watch Jazmyn so that we can go out with them.

Today, weather permitting, we're going to go look at house right next to my BIL's that is currently rent-to-own. We need a place of our own ASAP. I'm going crazy already living with my in-laws this long. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate what they've done for us with our whole house drama. We just need our own space.

I'm going to try and upload some pics of cards and ATCs that I've made for some swaps that I'm in on SCS.

Tired of all the green

I got tired of seeing all the green on my blog. So, I decided to change the template to something girly. My favorite color combo is pink and brown. That is why I decided to use those colors in my blog.

I completely forgot to mention a couple of days ago that I acutally (get ready for this) bought a in archery! I'm getting a Matthews Ignition. Luckily, I'm still small enough to use a junior bow (AKA kid's bow). It's about $300-$400 cheaper than the bow I bought for my DH. I originally wanted to get a pink bow because I wanted it to be a girly one and I don't plan on going hunting. The owner of the archery range brought up a good point on why NOT to get a colored bow. He said it would be more difficult to sell it, if I did want to sell it later on down the line. So, instead of getting a pink one, I'm going to get a camouflage one. I'm still going to get my pink color though. I decided that for the veins (or feathers as I call them) on the arrows, I'm going to choose pink and purple. Hey, something about it has to be girly! As of now, I don't plan on selling it. I would like to pass it on down to JEM. If she doesn't like archery, then I will sell it. The bow that I tried at the range was set at 40 lbs. I didn't have a difficult time pulling it back. The only thing is that the string/cord hurt my fingers because I didn't have a trigger. Apparently being able to pull back 40lbs. is good. Who knew?! The legal minimum to go hunting is 45lbs. I'm not going to go hunting though. I just want it for target practice. It's not that I don't approve of hunting. I just wouldn't like to go hunting myself.

Okay, enough with the long post. I'll post again real soon.

We've been watching the NBA Finals and tonight was awesome! Our San Antonio Spurs swept the Cleveland Cavaliers. It was an awesome game! I knew Tony Parker was going to get MVP.

Blame it on the NBA Playoffs

I love watching the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Playoffs right now. The problem with that is that it takes away from my crafting time. For instance, right now I'd be working on some swaps that I am in. Instead, I am watching the game and typing on my laptop. I will definitely be getting some crafting done tomorrow.

Go Spurs!

New Links

Okay, I just added the links to a couple of the girls that I chat with on SCS. Both are great blogs. Jackie has some beautiful cards on her blog. MollyDR is the one that I was talking about in my last post.

I also added the links to two of my fave sites: Splitcoaststampers (I practically live on there) and Stamping Bella (LOVE her bellas and fellas).

I'll post again soon.......if JEM lets me. LOL

Thank You

Okay, I've been reading the posts on SCS by my online buddy Molly (MollyDR). I've also been checking out her blog. Molly is a new Mommy and her hubby is in the military. He just went back overseas this past week. Reading Molly's stories makes me think about a lot of things. I admire the men and women who are serving in the military. I also admire the family of these men and women. I can not imagine what they go through with the worrying and all. I just want to say Thank You. Thank You to those that are serving our country. Thank You for putting your life on the line so that my family can be safe. Thank You also to the families of these brave men and women.

Bad Weekend

This weekend was not a good weekend at all. We (DH, MIL, JEM, and I) went to go eat an early dinner at a Mexican restaurant. Well, I ordered what I always eat from there: enchiladas suizas. As we were leaving the restaurant, I tell my DH "I feel sick. I know I ate a lot, but this is different." Well, the rest of the evening went fine......until about 3:30 am. That's when all hell broke loose. From 3:30am to about 8:45am I "worshipped the porcelain god" 5 times. I had vomitting, among other put it nicely. I guess I came down with food poisoning. I'm assuming it was from the chicken that's in the enchiladas suizas. That's the only thing that no one else had.
My MIL was nice enough to make me some chicken soup. The first time my DH served me some, I couldn't eat more than a few spoonfuls of it. Later in the evening, I had some more....a whole bowl! I slept pretty much most of Sunday, not by choice. I just could not stay awake. My MIL watched JEM for me while I slept in the recliner. I didn't want to go sleep in the bedroom because I felt it was better if I kept my head a bit elevated. My MIL and DH were so kind to me yesterday during the whole thing. I'm just thankful that JEM didn't get food poisoning.
I didn't even feel like going on the computer yesterday or even crafting. I had just gotten my bellas in from Stamping Bella on Saturday. I didn't even feel like playing with them. It was that bad.
Today's much better. No food poisoning symptoms, thank heavens. My sternum's just a little sore from the vomitting, other than that, I'm just peachy. I'm definitely going to get some crafting done today. I have to make up for not doing anything over the weekend.
Well, off to do some stamping.
