Am I the only one here that thinks this month has just flown by? It is just hard to believe that today is the last day of September. Wow I just can't wrap my self around this cause it just seems like yesterday we were in Indiana. This just blows my mind!

Stephanie finally got into her new dorm last night, well I hope so I have not heard for sure but they were to move last night into their new dorm rooms. She was so excited about it cause she got to room with Jackie her new bud in college. And the big plus is that she has her own bathroom and own bedroom. I will up date you later on what I know. Or just maybe she might post on her blog so we can see pictures.
Enjoy October everyone!!!

QVC did it to us again!

QVC was at it again they had scrap booking on their show a week ago today. So here are the results! Mind you these are all NOT mine some of them are my mom's stash!

Three of these boxes were mine the rest was moms. The picture below is what was in my three boxes!! Cool stuff don't you think. I twas like Christmas at our house! hehehehe But with no snow! :0(This last picture is all of the stuff that mom bought WOW! I think between the two of us we have more than the stores do! hehehe but that is okay I love to scrapbook. The new page topper came from on of the kits that came with some of my stuff. It is from a CD and I designed it. Kind of cute? I think that CD will be fun to play around with! Hope to show you more of my designs!

Okay here is my page for the contest. This page was to be of something I love, well I had to make it someone I Love. These pictures are of my husband Eric while we were still dating. The pictures are in Colorado up in the Poudre River Canyon in 1986. Isn't he good looking and such a ham!!!

Okay Page Maps here is my entry I hope everyone likes it. I had fun doing this cause it brought back some really good memories! P.S. Don't look at the date too close I have as 1996 not 1986 But I can easily change it. :0) I also wrote or typed something I Love and crossed it out and had it say Someone I love!!

If you could change anything about your life today, what would it be?

Yesterday on Sisterhood of scrap They posted this question "If you could change anything about your life today, what would it be?" And it really got me thinking about what I would like to change and the first thing is not be so negative about things going on in my life, I would like to be able to look more into the positive than the negative. Second not to be so down on my self I always feel that I am not good enough to do things or talented enough to make thing I always think some one's stuff is better than what I can do. Third my weight and being lazy! yeah you got it if I wasn't so lazy I probably would loose weight. I just seem to can't get my self motivated to do a thing. HELP!!!! Well that is my take on this question I would like to here others on their comments on this question so please feel free to post on here. Have a great day and Smile cause God does love you no matter what!

Chicago, Chicago!

Long day and some it was disappointing but the end was worth every minute. I got to spend the evening with my daughter. Her loving boyfriend Travis (who spoils her rotten!) got her free tickets to go see Chicago at the Orpheum in Sioux City last night and she asked me to go with. We had a great time, we sat in the nose bleed area but they were still good seats. The music wasn't loud which was a BIG plus!!! I was really cool. Stephanie said it was better than Rent. I don't Rent was pretty good but very loud! Our next adventure might be Wicked or Stomp. This going to see Broadway musicals is a lot of fun! Thanks Travis for the Tickets I can't thank you enough!!!

Also this morning they took us to a cover bridge and here are a few of those pic too! Really neat bridge.

Well our journey came to an end here is the last picture at the Indianapolis train station. We miss our Indiana buddies already. Don't be surprised if we show up out of the blue one of these days. I will call this weekend!

A breather!

August 29th, 2008

I finally have a breather so I can get some more updated on our vacation. Friday the 29th we went to the Air Force Museum in Dayton Ohio. I was really worried that I would be bored out of my mind but it was really neat place to walk around. it was so neat we were there for about 6 hours. They have three hangers full and I mean full of planes. I had taken so many photos that I will never be able scrap them all. So here are some pictures that I like the most! Oh yeah Mark said this is the Bomb Diggity of places

This is a huge quilt that has all the Air Force bases on it. Of course F.E. Warren's square is clear up on the top. But here is Mark and Eric standing in front of it.

This is when the boys went into a Thunderbird simulator. Marks looks like yeap I did it I am good!!!

Here are out two fighter pilots, aren't they good looking guys?

These are missiles that Mark and Eric used to guard when they would go out in the field when they were stationed at Cheyenne WY.This is my favorite picture I took all day. I just love the reflection off the granite bench that I sat my camera on.
The squeal of tires just for a photo opted! Mark just happen to see this statue and stopped to have another photo opt!
The paparazzi was following them every where!! They are so good looking how can they not!!!
