I've been tagged by one of my SBS-13 sisters, Nessy from Nessy's Notes. It is a great day for it since I don't have anything new to post today.
Here goes...

1. WHAT WERE YOU DOING 10 YEARS AGO??? I was working in a dairy ingredient quality control lab...testing yogurt and buttermilk cultures to make sure they could make what they were supposed to.
Pretty much the same thing I am doing today....taking kids to preschool and swimming lessons
chips and salsa, rosemary/olive oil Triscuits, veggies and dip, Reese's peanut butter cups, Flavored chips
4. NAME 5 THINGS YOU WOULD DO IF YOU WERE A MILLIONAIRE: I would join a gym (and get a personal trainer), hire someone to make us delicious/healthy meals everyday, hire a maid, visit all of my out-of-state stamping friends (Mary, Kisa, Delia, Lisa...), donate to charity
5. NAME 5 THINGS YOU LIKE DOING Stamping, Reading, Sleeping, Camping, Biking
6. NAME 5 THINGS YOU WOULD NEVER WEAR AGAIN Leg warmers, Anything in Flourescent colors, Pants that you roll up tight at your ankles, a bikini, stirrup pants
Cuttlebug, Cropodile,iPod,...can't think of anything else right at the moment.

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. We had a busy weekend even though we didn't really do anything. I took advantage of the fact that Tom was home and got a lot of cleaning done on Saturday and then Saturday night my good friend Jen ( and I got some quality stamping time in at the Archiver's scrap mania. It was nice to have 6 uninterrupted hours of stamping time. Hopefully I didn't annoy Jen too much with my non-stop chatter. It was nice to talk with her without having to yell over the kids screaming. Tom managed to handle the kids just fine except, when the kids went to bed, Beckett told him he could lay down next to them but only until mommy gets home and then you have to get out of her spot. I'm so glad to know someone here loves me.
I can't show you the project that I worked on at scrap mania because I didn't get it finished yet, but I do have a card that I made yesterday afternoon to share. This is just a simple wedding card. The couple image is Stampendous and the sentiment is from one of the clear Studio G $1 stamp sets. I colored the grooms tux with prismacolor pencils and gamsol. The rest is pretty simple...glitter, cuttlebug, ribbon, etc.
Thanks for stopping by!
