Keeping busy...

Last week I was looking forward to Monday. Monday came and went and now I'm looking forward to the weekend again. I've had a very busy week with work and then my personal life isnt slowing down much. I'm not complaining, it's just been a busy week. In all honestly I like it this way. I don't know what I would do if my life slowed down. AARRGGHH l won't even think about it. OOHH and next Friday my little sister is getting married... so much still left to do!

Last sunday me and the boys went down to Venice Beach. We have been talking about going and just walking around and enjoying our day. You know this mom business is getting harder and harder. Why can't they just let me hold thier hand? Yeah I know get over it, they are grown and don't want to hold their mama's hand. Next time they want or need something I am going to tell them... get way.. don't hug me... yeah right I wouldn't do that. Here are two of my favorite photos from Sunday.

I was looking though my flickr site.. and found some of my favorite layouts. So what do you do with your favorite layouts? I got sad thinking that they are just being stuck in a album somewhere. So I decided to post some of my favorites here. =) Enjoy

I'm off to another meeting. ta ta for now.

My mom and my aunt are my daily carpool buddies, so every time they would drive I would make sure to fall asleep. Ladies are crazy drivers!

So here are my nominations....because these ladies accept me for my crazy self.
Glenda- I haven't met you in real life YET, but when I do - I will toast a COORS LIGHT to you.
Laura - From the moment we met I knew I'd have a friend for life. =)
Cheryl - She is just WICKED cool. I love talking to her on the phone and she just inspires me with all her work.
Sue - I just think she is the coolest grandma out there =) plus she's craft, she has style, she has flare... she is MOXIE.. LOL. Am I making you laugh yet?
April- Just because she is crazy. No really... she makes me laugh and she is just my BFE!
Susie - Another crazy friend - I just seem to attract them - and by crazy I mean that she is just as wild as me - no wait... so that means I'm crazy too right. Susie is fighting her own life saving battles, but is still willing to run a marathon and raise money while doing it.
And last but not least....

There you go. I wonder who will play with me. Erin thank you for tagging me. It sure was hard to only pick 7 people.

I forgot all about my blog...

Yes I did. It's not like I have been busy.. well then again I have been. My sister 'Bridezilla' informed me and my mom last week sometime that we had to throw her a bridal shower. Well.. thing is, isn't that the maid of honor's job? Well she doesn't have one.. so off we go. So I've been busy planning and the bridal shower is on Sunday. We planned it Mexican Style, we gave everyone 5 days notice! LOL.

I just have to share this photo. Took it with my men on Saturday Night. Aren't they so handsome. Is it bad for a mom to think their sons are so handsome? Handsome they maybe but brats still. That is a whole other story.

On the scrappy side, I finally completed my girl power Book. I love how it came out, I can't decided if I want my niece to have it or not. I'm so selfish. =)

I haven't talked about my marathon training lately, but let me tell it I am having an amazing time! Last week was 10 miles, and this week is 12... but hahah I won't be running with the team. I have water stop duty! WOOHOO!!! I am going to have the BEST WATER STOP EVER.
This was my water stop last time I did it.

The daughter my parents never had

and I say that with the upmost sincerity. Meet Uri. Uri is the daughter of a friend of my mom's. I first met her last November when she came out to visit with her mom. Uri is an aspiring singer. She sings amazing! She signed a record deal about 2 weeks go.. WOO HOO URI and now... things are really looking up. She has been singing at local resturants and she just got the call to do the biggest show ever. She is going to sing the Mexican national Athmen at the Cotto, Margarito to fight on July 26 in Las Vegas. Now that is huge! You know it's huge if your a boxing fan... and yes I am a major boxing fan.

So this morning as we were driving to work, I told my mom, Uri is the daugher dad never had. She looked at me really funny like how can you say that? I said MOM.. She can sing! None of us can sing. See my dad can sing, poor guy was left with a tone-death family. If I sing I sound like a dying cat. Yeah don't laugh. My poor dad, but at least now he has the daughter he never had. Uri is just the sweetest girl ever. We are so excited for her. She has been working really hard out here and hopefully this stepping stone will help her launch her carrer.

For all you local San Fernando Valley people she will be singing at El 7 Mares in San Fernando. All I know is that they are evening shows. I'll be there with my parents.

A RAK with a Twist

So you know CHA is coming up and even though I won't be attending CHA and nor will Magistical Memories, we are still coming out with a CHA Release. *INSERT BIG CHEESY SMILE HERE*. So I was told I could give away... the whole my whole release.

I will give away my entire release to one person. Yep one person but there is a twist on this. What is the twist... scrap your toes. Don't get scared. People often wonder what is it with my fascination with toes. Well honestly it's not that I am fascinated with toes or anything, it's that I like my toes. They are cute, short, and chubby - I love my toes.

So do you want a RAK of my new release? This is what you will get.

1. Mushroom mini chipboard book

2. Airplane mini chipboard book

3. Girl Skull chipboard book

4. Boy Skull chipboard book

5. Winged heart chipboard ornament

OK so this is what you need to do. Show your toes some love.

Here are a few suggestions:

1. Take a picture of your toes and admire their beauty.

2. Write a poem about your toes.

3. If you happen to have little ones, take a picture of your toes with theirs. OOOHH that would be a beautiful layout.

4. Again if you have little ones, have them draw a picture of your toes.

Yeah I'm a toe loving freak, but I only love 4 pairs of toes. I love MARK's toes the best. He can pick up things with his toes, I can hold hands with his toes, I just LOVE THEM. My toes don't' bend at all, honestly they do nothing special but look cute. Then you have my boys' toes, I love them simply because I gave birth to those toes. LOL. I look at them now and wonder where has the time gone... OK I'm starting to get all sappy here.. so you get where I'm going right.

So anyway, scrap, take pictures, write a poem, draw your toes, do anything with them and then post a link here. You have until .... uumm... the end of July. Yeah end of July is good.

Here is a layout I did a while back. See I told you they were cute toes.
