Yep,I've been bitten by the Zumba bug.A lady started offering classes twice a week here,so I thought I'd try it out.You get a discount if you have a child who would like to attend,so Allyson goes with me.She is so cute,and in no way shape or form should be embarrassed at any of the moves,but she is.I love watching her when she has to shake her's a great workout,but you can put as much into it or as little as you prefer.I still feel most times like salsa is something I should just stick with on my nachos,but I will get it sometime.They have the coolest clothes too,but a little pricey.So have any of my blog readers tried it?????????? If so tell me all about your experience.

Not much else too exciting happening in my life,other than work and home life.I need, I stress I need to get scrappy real soon!!!!!!!!!!

Well I'm back...................

Howdy blog, it is cold and dusty in here.I guess I haven't been around in a bit,like a whole summer to be exact.Well I feel my mojo slowly coming back,so I think I'll be updating more often.

I worked more this summer,so that put a damper on scrapping,plus our weather was unbelievably good this year,so I enjoyed the beach with my kids,and going away with them etc.I also got the worst sunburn of my life.........ON MY LIPS!!!!!!!!! I am telling you, I have never ever had anything like it.It hurt for over a week.I didn't want to eat,smile or a thing.It kept me taking advil,and it looked disgusting.

Evan and Allyson both contacted swimmers ear too.They have both had earaches,but never anything like this.The pain was unreal,and Allyson's wouldn't go away.We had to switch antibiotics and she needed to go every second day to the Dr.It was a mess.Her poor ear looked like a Mexican party dip inside.....GAG! I never saw an ear bleed like that.

My mom's 6 mth marriage to a loser ended!Actually it never even really began as the dough head who performed it never sent the papers to vital statistics,so she was never labeled as being married..........Thank You God:) I cried through the whole ceremony for a reason people!

Later I will update with the few summer photos I took,and I hope to soon be back with some layouts also.Lots of inspiration out there!!!!!!!! Make sure to check out this week's Creative Scrappers sketch,Mission Create is having a blog-aversary...WHOOT,WHOOT............and Creative Prompts4U has added a new little twist to their challenge this week also.

Good Sunday Afternoon All

Isn't it nice to see the sun? I sure hope that the sun is peeking out where ever you are. I've had a busy weekend,but I did manage to complete a layout for this week's challenge at CreativePrompts4U.I just love the color combination they asked us to use.So bright and nice for those summer photos.My layout features photos taken last summer when we met our little cousin Atticus for this time.He was trying out his new wading pool.

How True It Is !

I got these from a friend on facebook.Some of them are,well most of them,if not all are so true and kinda funny.

1. I think part of a best friend's job would be to immediately clear your computer history when you die.

2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.

4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.

5. How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?1.

6. Was a learning curve really necessary?

7. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on #5. I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

9. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.

10. Bad decisions make good stories.

11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection...again.

13. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page research paper that I swear I did not make any changes to.

14. "Do not machine wash or tumble dry" means I will never wash this - ever.

15. I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello? Damn it!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voice mail. What did you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and run away?

16. I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.

17. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

18. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

19. I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lite than Kay.

21. Sometimes, I'll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and suddenly realize I had no idea what the heck was going on when I first saw it.

22. I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.

23. The only time I look forward to a red light is when I'm trying to finish a text.

24. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.

25. How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear or understand a word they said?

26. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a dick from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!

27. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.

28. Is it just me or do high school kids get dumber & dumber every year?

29. There's no worse feeling than that millisecond you're sure you are going to die after leaning your chair back a little too far.

30. As a driver I hate pedestrians, and as a pedestrian I hate drivers, but no matter what the mode of transportation, I always hate cyclists.

31. Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.

32. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I'd bet my ass everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time!

33.Even when opportunity knocks, you still have to get off your ass and open the door.

Some Scrappy Goodness

Just wanted to share a couple recent layouts that I've done. I had the photo for the first one for eons.I scrapped it once,but didn't really feel that I did the photo justice,so I waited until I got some new scrap supplies and was inspired by them.The photo is of three of my on-line scrappy friends.I just wanted to showcase them in a pretty feminine way,and journal about how I've never met them in real life,but still they are very special people in my life! I got a sheet of burlap and it kinda scares me,but I decided that it looked great on this layout.Primas.........oh my,what I weakness I have for them.I love every color,shape and design!

The next layout is of my youngest Evan,actually working at school.The photo was taken by his teacher,it was hat day,so they could wear them in class.

I hope to be back with some more layouts shortly.Right now we are renovating our kitchen and most of my cupboard contents are right where I scrap! will be worth it in the end though.
