4 years ago today.....


...I married the most wonderful man in the world! Happy Anniversary, Chad! I love you!

And 53 years ago today, my Dad was born! Happy Birthday, Daddy!

So, now a couple of updates. On Sunday, I went to my second crop with the scrap group I was invited to join. My Mother-in-law, Marty, is a part of the group now too, so it's fun scrapping with her. I had alot of cards to make (which I didn't take photos of), but I did manage to get one layout done. I came across this picture of me (at age 8)when we were going through photos while my Mom was down. I thought it was too hilarious NOT to scrap.


I call it my Afro Mullet. Gorgeous, isn't it? My sister is SOOO lucky she missed most of the 80's. And I have to say, I am LOVIN' those Heidi Swapp bling borders. Even though you can't really tell, I used the Martha (light green) ones here that I got in my last Poppy Ink kit.

One last thing. About 6 months ago, I retired my beloved (but tired and not big enough) Coach bag and got the Daisy Tote from Etsy. Although it's cute, it just wasn't working for me as a purse. I wanted another nice purse, but really didn't want to spend a big chunk of change again. I browse the big purse sites now and then, just to see what they have. and I came across this one on the Dooney & Bourke website. I comes in about 6 different colors, but I LOVED the pink on green.


Well, on Saturday, Chad and I were out and about and I asked him to stop by Dillard's just so I could look and see what purses they had. I walked over to the Dooney display, and there it was....the EXACT bag in the EXACT color combo I wanted. The best part.....it was 50% OFF (and it's still a current season bag, too)!!! I swear it was fate. I had some extra money, and Chad said he didn't mind if I got it. It's slightly lighter than it shows in the picture, and the green and pink part is a kinda silky canvas cloth. It's the happiest purse I've ever seen. So cute.

Well, that's all I have for now. Have a great day, everyone!
