I got to see my parents this week! They were close by for some training, so we went out for dinner. I haven't seen them since Christmas, so it was a great night!
Here are a few layouts that I've been working on:
My owl hoodie! I love it so! I had some owl paper, so I had to use it!
One of my 365 photos (yeah, I might have missed about a month of that -- oops!) Used my SC kit on this
Lola, in all her playfulness!
She's a little hard to see, but Lola is giving me kisses in this photo!
Love this photo! Her tilted head says it all!

- I like winter better than summer. That's why snowdays rock!
- As of Wednesday, I'm three weeks soda-free!
- I am such a nightowl. I have a hard time getting to bed before midnight.
- I talk to my mom on the phone nearly every night.
- I found my first grey hair on my 17th birthday.

N - is for nervous. I can be a nervous Nellie at times. I think I got that from my grandma.
Here's my latest scrappy stuff -- I feel like I'm on a roll!
This is another layout I made from my Studio Calico kit! This photo is my reflection in one of my cookware lids!
I love this photo of Mike from last summer. I finally got my hands on some hambly! :)
Lola! I'm journaling the story of how we found each other on the back of the round cards. Love the big purple grungeboard swirl!
I made this page for one of the Winterlicious challenges on SIStv. It's based on those American Express ads with Tina Fey, M. Knight Shyamalan, etc.
This one is based on my love of cover songs!
The story of our first kiss, in comic strip style! Long story short, I had never been kissed when I kissed Mike. I froze. We laugh about it now! :)
I'll post my cards later (I need to play catch up!)

I woke up with the worst sinus pressure ever a little while ago. Ugh! Feeling a little better, but I feel it lingering.
Good news: I'm still soda-free! I think this is day 12. I'm past the point of cravings - yay!!! The thing that has tripped me up in the past is going out to eat -- I usually want a soda with my dinner, and I usually convince myself if I just have soda when we go out, it's not a big deal. We went out a couple of times this weekend...and I had water! And tea. I'm so proud of myself right now!
Feeling kinda crappy about my job right now. I don't think my principal understands what it is a technology teacher does. From what I have gathered this week, a tech ed teacher should spend the time that she should be teaching putting together a freaking newsletter. That sucks, because I see more meaningless tasks like that in my future: I think I've been labled the "resource" -- the one everyone goes to when they want a project organized in a snazzy way (layout, video, etc). If it is, I'm out of there. Screw it. I didn't go to school only to have my class constantly interrupted for newsletter and video projects.
If you've read this far, I thank you for indulging me in a vent-session! I'll have happier stuff in my next post, promise. :)

And it was a great mail day...both on the giving and receiving ends! I sent out a package to my happy mail partner at SIS, plus cards for three swaps. And then I came home to see that the guy in the brown truck had left a package with my neighbor -- my Studio Calico goodies! Cute stuff -- I've already made a page! This has been in my head for a week -- not how I expected it to turn out (I think because I'm not too fond of my handwriting), but I still like it.
Saturday was a great mail day, too! I recieved some lovelies from Veronica's etsy shop. Her stuff is rockin' -- check it out if you haven't already!
And of course, the daily cards. I keep forgetting where I left off with these!
My mom got a new job -- she's so excited about it! :)
I gave up soda on Wednesday...
...the transition was not easy!
We're reading I, Robot in Engineering class. Apparently I am breaking some sort of unwritten rule by not showing the movie! lol (Oh, that's Veronica's robot -- cuteness!)
My Saturday morning was crazy...I had write a couple of checks to pay some bills. Put the "cash" check into the rent envelope. Mailled it. Had to get to the bank by noon to withdraw cash. Called Mike sobbing as I drove home. Got behind the mailman. Prayed he would turn down my driveway -- he did. Retrieved the check!

So I've been drinking lots of water. My "flavorful" drink (which used to be Dr. Pepper) is this. And this. Seriously yummy stuff!
So of course, today was the perfect day for Mike to bring in a 2-liter of Pepsi. Grrrrr. It's okay, though. I can deal with the temptation. I have 4 cans of soda that have been untouched this week. Take that, soda!
