Sophia challenged us to blog about things that are our signature. Things that are just ME. This is going to be a hard one and I prbably could have thought of more if you would not have challenged me but then I guess that’s what makes it a challenge 🙂

1. I have a birthmark on my right side of my stomach, or tire if you want to call it that, rofl

2. My sense of humor

3. Starbucks Chai Latte

4. Skirts, I love wearing skirts

5. Anything household in the color cream, I love cream. All of my furniture is cream or some variation of cream. My towels are cream, my sheets are cream, walls-cream, baby linens-cream, rugs-cream, okay do you get the picture, and if not, here’s one for you…

6. My sister says that pink reminds her of me, so maybe pink

7. Big vehicles, I hate small cars.

8. My voice, which I hate, but it’s totally only ME. I hate it so much I am always changing it.

9. My craft, art, and creativity. Everyone in my family thinks of me when they see a sewing machine or anything crafty.

10. My collections. I have: Raggedy Ann dolls, Swarovski Crystal figurines, Humpty Dumpty, Donald Duck (used to be a major signature for me because I have a Donald charm on my necklace that I never used to take off)

11. Coach purses and bags. I only use Coach and the bigger the better.

12. It used to be my curly hair till I decided to wear it straight, but I would still consider it a signature for me in my family.

13. A baked potatoe from Pappas Brisket House in Houston. The kind stuffed with beef and all the fixins. I am known for downing those bad boys.

14. Pink lemonade has always been my signature drink.

15. One last one, humm, oh yea, my random facts on my blog. I only say it’s signature to me because I have had people ask me if they could borrow the idea. What a compliment 🙂

Hope you enjoy my list. I have posted some of my HOF entries on 2peas if you want to take a peek in my gallery.

I really like to learn things about my friends. Things that are not everyday common knowledge type of things but random things. So I thought it would be cool to post a random thing about myself everyday on my blog, just because. If you like, leave me a comment with a random thing about yourself. I am sure it will make me smile 🙂

And I can’t wait. I have a few that I know for sure, you know who you are 🙂 Not because they told me but because I was on the detective thread on 2peas all weekend and I know I figured them out, lol. The lo’s that have been posted so far on 2peas are so awesome I just cant imaging how they picked only 25.

I was surfing the other day and came across these cool sites. This one was fun because you can make your own dyno tape I love dyno tape in my lo’s for some reason but this is cool for digi lo’s. Also I came across this which is useful for journaling, there are actually 2 but I don’t know which one I like best here’s one and here’s the other . And one more link which I came across a while back. I thought it was really cool and has some great tips for creative blocks .

So I hope these links can be helpful to you in your everyday scrapping, you do scrap everyday, right? I feel like I was on scrappin vacation last week because of HOF. I cheated and did scrap a few days last week, bad girl I’ve been. Well till next time. That’s all I have for today.

HOF excitement…

Well today was the BIG day. I didn’t get the BIG call but I am so excited for all of those who posted and can’t wait to see who the winners are. I cannot stress how happy I am for them. I just know that some of them have to be my friends. I know I will cry for joy when I find out. HOF is a big thing to me. It always has been, but this was my first year entering. HOF and CK are what actaully got me to start scrapping again, about 3 years ago. I was obsessed with the HOF book that had all of the HOF’ers in it. I used to look at it over and over and just drool over the lo’s. Every since then I wanted to accomplish that goal. I know that I will do it someday. I knew that I would not get it this year because I was not in my top shape, lol. I was rushed near the end and very stressed from all that was going on with business. But I promise to come back fierce next year.

I have to add what my sweet Abbey said to me…
Abbey: Are you sad mommy?
Me: Yea sweetie, I sad they didn’t like my scrapbooking
Abbey: Awww, well I love your scrapbook
Me: {heart melts}

I am supposed to have my first photo shoot tomorrow. Wish me luck. I am so nervous. I hope she doesnt cancel because I haven’t heard from her.

Sorry I dont have anything new and interesting to post but here is my latest lo…

I don’t know if any of you guys watch America’s Next Top Model but I have been hooked since last season. The new season started last night. Oh my gosh! I just could not find not one girl who was model pretty. I hope they get that fixed next week when they give the big makeovers. Where do they find these girls. Everytime I watch this show I think about sending Abbey’s pictures into The Ford Agency. I am really thinking about it. I have the address on my table and the pics ready to go but I just cant bring myself to do it. Don’t know if its nerves or what. I figure, we may as well try since we are so close to LA.

Things are looking up for the business side of things. Thank God. It seems like it took Mike to go up there and fix everything. I am so proud of him. I am so blessed to have a husband like him. He is working so hard to move mountains to provide for us and to leave a legacy for our future generations. That is the BIG part of our dream. We want to build this business up so big that our children and their childrens children will never want for anything. We want to make life different then what we had. It is so nice that we both think exactly the same. We both have the exact same wants and goals. This is all so important for us. I truly believe that God planted that seed in our hearts when we were children. God is letting it come to pass. I feel so much stronger now. The fear that I was feeling is gone and I am trusting in God and I know he will see it all through. There are obstacles and struggles that we have come across it is true, but I think that those thinks only make us more knowledgable and stronger and stronger in our faith. They always happen for a reason. And then we go onto tomorrow and we are blessed with a new day to start with. And we do it all through Christ.

Hey, here’s my last lo that I did. I made it for Blake because he is our only son. He will be heir to all that we are working for and the scroll is a letter that I wrote to him telling him the story of how and why we started the business and about how hard his dad worked for us.

And here’s my princess…

My absolute favorite 80’s song is Shout by Tears For Fears, lol. I turn it on full blast when it comes on the radio. It just does something to me, I love that song 🙂 Second is Rio from Duran Duran.

Daily rituals….

Sophia challenged us to list our daily rituals. Things that we do every single day. I thought I would have a hard time with this one because I am so random at things but a few did come to mind, more then I expected.

Get up at the exact same time every weekday morning, get the babies up to take Krista to school.
Feed the babies as soon as I get back from dropping her off
Get on 2peas and eat my breakfeast as soon as I finish feeding them.
Get the babies in bed by 8 and Krista by 10.
Watch Fresh Prince on t.v. while I scrap.
Finish scrapping by 12 am
Sleep
Get woken up at 3 am by Blake and put the pacifier in his mouth

I am sure I am missing a bunch but these are the ones that come to mind, probably cause they are the hectic part of my day, everything else is pretty much chill and I do things whenever I feel like and not as a ritual.

I had to post this pic. My cousin emailed it to me. It is the three of us when we were little. I can’t believe she found this. I don’t have very many pics of me as a kid. My mom (grandmother) is very old fashion and she saw picture taking as a waste of money. She was raised during the depression which made my life depressing, lol Man, you would think that with all that money she saved on film she could have saved up for me to get an ear tuck, bwahahaha, talk about BIG, lol. Please tell me I grew into my ears. This pic is hilarious!

I don’t know how to cook, at all. I hate to cook and I guess it’s cause I don’t know how so I don’t enjoy burning things and ruining meals 😦

First off I want to say thank you all so much for all of your prayers and words of encouragement, it means so much to us.

I have been so proud of myself lately. I have been scrapping one lo every night for the past week or so. I have gotten to the point where I can do a page in less then 3-4 hours when it used to take me a few days. Here are a few…

This one is a simple one and only took about 30 min. Journaling reads:

This little piggie went to market
This little piggie stayed home
This little piggie had roast beef
This little piggie had none
THESE little piggies will take you wherever you want to go.

I am having so much fun with this…

Lorrie, no that is not too weird because I also talk to myself when I am alone. Although I don’t usually do it out loud I am constantly talking in my mind. Please don’t think I am crazy. I think I am just around kids too much and I am such a talker that my mind just keeps going when there are no adults around, lol.

People…

My dh left on another business trip today. We were so sad to see him go and he was sad to leave 😦 This time is really tearing us up. We have been having some major problems with his business partner and it is very unfortunate that we cant just dump the maniac. Does anyone out there know anything about bipolar people. We have come to the conclusion that he is bipolar/ narcissistic. His attitude has changed for the worst since we moved here. The way he disrespects Mike is simply unacceptable. He has major mood swings and poor Mike can’t even ask a simple basic question without him blowing up at him, literally.

You have to understand Mike is a very patient and pleasent person, the most I have ever come across. He is not the type of person to argue or even complain. But when he left he told me that he thought that this trip was going to be the final straw and that he was going to have to put him in his place. I am afraid that Mike is finally going to show his rath and really let him have it. I cannot even begin to explain what is going on with him and the way he acts but I can definatly tell you that it is not normal behavior.

I have to say that this has really taken a toll on us both emotionally because we are at a point in our relationship where everything is so perfect and to have someone come in and try to steal our joy is very hard. So pray that this business deal can hurry up and come to an end and we can move on by ourselves and just dump him.

I looked up scripture and have been praying on it.
The good thing is that we both recognize his mental problem and he will not be able to play any mind games with us like he is trying to do in both business and personal issues. I realize that the enemy shows himself to us in any form and I truly feel that he was sent to us by the enemy to try to ruin us.

I have been meditating on Psalms 27 and Psalms 27:1 says, ” God is my light and my salvation. Of whom shall I be in fear? God is the stronghold of my life. Of whom shall I be in dread”
And Psalms 27:10 makes me rejoice as I was abandoned by my parents as a baby to my grandparents, it says “In case my own father and my own mother did leave me, even God Himself would take me up” And He surely has, all my life He has and I praise Him whole heartedly.
