i've had a few thoughts about turning 40 and some of them not so good, but most of them have been good. i created this little book to house those thoughts. actually, it started out to be a display project for treasury and turned out to be something i love!
yup, that's me. almost 40. crazy, i know! where did all the time go and how did i get so old? oh, well... as i said in a previous post, i'd rather be 40 and looking down at the dirt than be 39 and looking up at it. really! i think i might love being 40! i know i love when people actually don't believe me and ask for my driver's license as proof. LOVE that! well, i just have a couple more days in the 30's and then it's on to a new adventure! life!
i know. i used this title before, but i promised to post my projects and they are "june @ OPAAT". :) i think this is my favorite kit i've gotten during my term on the creative team. :) loads of fun stuff and the add on goes perfectly with the kit! you should go check it out!
good morning! happy monday, chicks! i just want to say there are a lot of birthdays in may, including my own! i was dreading mine this year until i ended up in the hospital in a critical situation that i, thankfully, survived and am better than ever! now, i'm so excited for my birthday and i will be celebrating being alive and well at 40! YES! i said 40! eek! how did it happen? how did i get that old? oh well, i'm still looking down at the dirt instead of up and for that, i am so so thankful! :) so, i said there are a lot of birthdays in may and i want to shout out to a few special ones in my life.

i better get to work, eh? :) i do have quite a few birthday cards to make this week. i better get started! happy tuesday night and don't forget gilmore girls. :) is it season finale tonight?
so, i asked my mama what she wanted to do on mother's day and, no big surprise, she wanted to go to white rock for breakfast at poultry in motion! :) love that place and i was not disappointed in my mashady omelet. yum! we had a great time taking photos (wish it would have been a little warmer) and drinking coffee and hanging out! what a fun morning! i totally recommend! here's one of the cute photos we took.
thanks to the cute girl who took this for us at the coffee shop. :)
i hope you all had a fabulous day with your mamas and your families!
ok, off to treasury today! have a good one and peace out, chicks! :)
i am blessed and i am finally home! i tried to post the entry below from the hospital, but it couldn't get it to post from my blackberry. i came home yesterday afternoon and am doing good. a little tired from being quite sedentary for almost a week, but i can breathe and i feel good! :) i'm hoping to be back to normal activity levels in the next few days and get my life back to normal. i've got a lot of scrapping to do! :)
Good morning, chicks! So, have been wondering where I've been? We had a bit of a big scare this week on Tuesday and I ended up in the hospital with 2 bloodclots in the veins to my lungs. Fast forward 4 days and I'm still here but doing much better. I can't wait to go home soon! Good thing I have this blackberry pearl! It's my little connection to the real world and a little sanity. At least I get to watch the Kentucky derby today! ;) Peace out, chicks, and have a great day!
