Well, Karen is teaching a new online course at NYC Scraps about mini books called "Holiday Mini Book Formulas". If you know anything about Karen, she is all about the journaling. She is the kind of person that takes scrapbooking seriously because it is all about the story and the art is all very personal. It is not to be judged because it is just about YOU. She is sincere in her writing, pages and mini. The story behind the picture is what you get. You really do get a sense that you are right there along with her and her family. You can check out her challenge blog too. It is called Creative Therapy . I encourage you to go and read it. The challenges are always thought provoking and will definitely get you thinking.
So I hope you check out her class, you sure don't want to miss this. If you love mini's and getting those precious stories told, then this is the class for you!

I celebrated my 30th birthday this year. A very big event in any one's life. I have read and seen people go crazy over how old they are getting and yet I did not share their worries. I did however wanted to look good and loose a bit of extra pounds. Just so I can look back and say..."dang I was HOT!" when I am old and wrinkled up, lying in my warm comfy bed next to my sweet husband, looking at my soon to be mini album holding this particular picture. I didn't feel the pain of of adding another year into my life. I was proud to be 30 years old! In fact I think I told everyone I knew. So this picture not only represent what I look like, but it also reminds me of how I handled getting older, being totally happy, feeling healthy and just perfectly content about everything in my life.

I know, I know....so dramatic! But seriously, I have really been thinking about this and this is the direction I want to take from now on. Will it be hard, yes! I'm pretty sure breaking any bad habits will. Taking the necessary time to create meaningful projects...that's hard..check! Finishing anything I start....hard.. check!
So this might be just what I needed. So I will be picking my 10 pictures that represent me "NOW", will post them here (having a hard time downloading pics right now) and then off to make my mini. Will post my mini when I am done. Hope you all decide to check it out and look at the challenge and see if this is something you want to do!
Here is it:
You have everything you need right now to be vibrant, happy and fully engaged in the creative process of life. Sometimes you just have to slow down, look around and realize it! Here’s what I want you to do …
• Snap ten or twelve photos of your life right now. Or find recent photos that you've already taken.
• Compile these photos in one of these super-cute Bazzill Mono-Mini albums (keep reading)
• Keep or carry this album with you, tucked in your purse or desk drawer for one full year.
• Promise to glance through the album every time you stumble upon it or pull it out.
• On October 1st, 2009, create a scrapbook page about your experience.

Oh, on a side note I also want to do Ali's A Week in the Life...! Yea, I know there's so much I want to do. But that's how I am, I need idea's, list of things to do. Otherwise, I'll go crazy. LOL!

School is back in session. A lot of us have little ones that started Preschool and Kindergarten this year. Today was my daughter Chloe's first day of Kindergarten. I dropped her off and then walked home crying like a baby! LOL. I'm grateful for this day. I want to celebrate, so I'm going to give you all a chance to win this new paper collection by Basic Grey.Here's the catch (yah, there's always a catch) ~ tell me something that you are thankful for. I am thankful that my daughter is in remission and that she was able to start Kindergarten on time. I am grateful that she made a few friends at school today and that she came home happy and ready to do her first homework assignment with a smile on her face. I will choose a winner next Tuesday night, September 9th.

It was actually not bad and pretty good on the price I might add, for someplace a little nicer than the norm. It may not have been fancy or totally overboard but it was nice to just sit there, talk, laugh and spend time together like that. Jorge had quite a few of their drinks so he was good but I myself cant drink before eating. The food was GREATE! Jorge ate all his but I couldn't. After eating the appetizer (fresh fried calamari) and sharing Jorge's clam chowder soup, I barely touched my dinner. But it was great. I think we are going back there again. It was a seafood place and we decided it was best to order everything seafood instead of pasta or steak. DUH! We had a great time and we even had a chocolate brownie with ice cream that our waitress had put a candle on for our anniversary. It was really sweet of her and we blew it out together. I secretly wished for a hundred more anniversary together. Fingers crossed it comes true. : )

Today is our JOTP anniversary and on the 16'th is our church wedding anniversary! I must say that, it has been such a fun ride with my hubby. And time has gone by so fast and I can't believe it's already 11 years ago since we first got married. Jorge truly is my best friend and knows me so well. Can't help but smile and laugh when we are together. I have so much fun and act like a teenage girl in love when I am around him. No plans tonight, but hopefully this Saturday we can get away for some needed alone time. Looking forward to a nice dinner and a grown up movie (not a cartoon). Yeah, we are boring like that...but it's alone time and we will take it. LOL!
Happy Anniversary My Love!!! No trade in's yet! Woo hoo!

This is one of my fave line from BG so I think this is an awesome giveaway! So dig out those photos and maybe you can win the entire line.
I guess I have been really thinking about my kids and how both of them will be in school next week. This is a big deal for me, since I wont have a baby with me at home. Anyway, I was digging through pics and saw this video of my son's Thanksgiving School Show when he was in Kinder garden. Isabella was only 1 years old. There is a FUNNY part when I catch her dancing and well you see her reaction. My kids and I have been having a fun time watching it over and over again laughing at Isabella's reaction. Watch and see what I am talking about.
Maybe its just being her mom, but I really thought her reaction was so funny!

Sorry I have not been around. Life has its tendency to throw you off your game. Hence the reason for why I have been absent. After CHA, I come home to semi messy house with so much catching up on laundry, cleaning, cooking and taking care of my babies and yes that is including the biggest baby of them all my husband. Only to find out he was leaving for San Antonio for a week just a day after I got back. URGH!
