Greetings From...STS Blog Train

Download wordart here

This is going to be such a fun blog train! If you've traveled this summer or plan to travel in the future you are going to LOVE all the mini kits you'll be getting!

I played with the mini kit that Shel Belle Scraps made. Her kit represents Minnesota since that's where she's from. Take a look at what you'll get when you visit her blog....

These minis are going to come in so handy with the postcard project I do with my class every year!

Here's a layout I made with Shel's kit...

OK, it's time for you to go collect all your minis! You can visit Shel's Blog to get the rest of the links. Remember that some bloggers may not have their kits posted yet, so be patient and visit them again later.

Have fun!

There's a war going on in my house!

Download wordart here

For the past couple of days there has been a war going on in my house between Orange Croc Guy and myself. It all started when he had the nerve to beat my high score on the table tennis return challenge on the wii sports resort. It's my house....I'm supposed to have the high score! LOL!

After he left, I got busy getting my high score back. The problem with that was the harder I tried to beat his score the worse I played. LOL! Well, to make a long story short, after several hours, a very sore arm and a thirst for revenge I reclaimed my #1 status.

I decided to pay him back by going into his home while he was out and taking over the high score on some of his games. I make myself the proud owner of the #1 spot on eight of his wii games. LOL!

I told him what I did, but I didn't let him know which games or how many. He's found two of them and reclaimed his spot. The other six are still mine! LOL!

He warned me that when I least expect payback...I should expect it. He doesn't scare me. LOL!

Well, today the war went to a whole other level when I convinced him to watch a movie with me. Of course, the movie I wanted to watch was August Rush because you guys said it was good and I could drool over JRM while watching.


Well, here's how the conversation at the beginning of the movie went....

Orange Croc Guy: Is this a chick flic?
Me: No, you're going to love it.
OCG: That's the guy from...
Me: (cutting him off) No, it's not.
OCG: Why are we watching this?
Me: My blog readers said we needed to.
OCG: Really? We...they said we...you and I...need to watch this movie.
Me: (hoping he'll be quiet and watch) Well, they know how much you mean to me.
OCG: Do they know you call me Orange Croc Guy?
Me: Of course, if I used your real name no one would know who I was talking about.
OCG: Do they know that my mother bought those shoes because she saw them on TV and thought they were cool or that you only saw me in them one time as I was coming in from the pool and that they've been hidden away since I found out you called me OCG?
Me: (note to self: use emergency key, find orange crocs) (Said while laughing) No, but that whole letting your mother dress you thing is a story I'll be sure to share with them.
OCG: (said while hitting me with a pillow) I need to find new friends.
Me: Yeah, good luck with that. Now be quiet or I'm turning up the volume on the TV.

The movie was watched, JRM looked hot, hot, hot and even OCG had to admit it was good.

I have to tell you that I loved all the comments on my post about the end of The Tudors! Shirley's comment was just begging to be turned into a wordart, so here it is....

Now, I'm going to get some sleep because tomorrow I'm going to see Eclipse!!!

Bad Blogger!

Download wordart here

I'm sorry I haven't been blogging about my days lately.  I've just been doing a whole lot of nothing and did bore you.  LOL!

Earlier today my friends and I decided to go into Miami for lunch.  That meant getting out of the pajamas and actually getting into a car.  Well, I managed to get dressed with no problem, but getting to the car was a whole other story.

There were 6 of us going to lunch and  that meant taking Rachel's SUV.  We got into the elevator at the parking garage and someone pushed the button to get us where we needed to go.  We realized after a minute or two that the elevator wasn't moving. 

Now, I know I've talked about my claustrophobic tendencies before so you shouldn't be surprised to hear that I was not a happy camper.  LOL!  The elevator was full and not moving and I wanted out of there!

The button got pushed again and this time the elevator door opened.  I was the first one out of there!  While everyone else waited for the other elevator I headed for the stairs.  LOL!  Of course they laughed at me and pointed out that the car was on the sixth level.  I kept walking and told them I didn't care and I would meet them there. 

Of course, they beat me to the 6th level!  When I got there they acted like they had been waiting on me for hours.  I swear they had even pulled out a deck of cards and acted like they were playing poker while waiting.

When we got home again we were able to get a parking spot on a lower level of the parking garage, but I still took the stairs down. 

Right now my car is parked on the 5th level and if I need it any time soon I'll be taking the stairs.  LOL!

No more Tudors

OK, so I'm kind of sad these days. Sunday night was the series finale of The Tudors and I am so going to miss that show! When it first aired I decided to try watching for one reason and one reason only...

LOL! Isn't he enough reason to watch?!?!

I kept watching because it was a really good show and now it's gone forever. What's a girl to do?

I forgot to tell you...

Download wordart here

Yesterday when I was telling you the sad facts I forgot to tell you about the bottle of honey. About two weeks ago I paid $5 for one of those bear shaped bottles of honey in the deli downstairs because I just had to have it and I was too lazy to walk or drive the three blocks to the grocery store to get it there.

Well, that stupid $5 bottle of honey is still sitting in the kitchen unopened and I have no idea why I thought I needed it so badly. LOL!

Sad facts

Download wordart here

Now that I'm on vacation I should be living it up, but I'm not. To prove that I thought I would share some sad facts about my day with you.

1. When I weighed in on the wii fit I realized that I've put on 5 pounds since last Friday. Darn those frozen margaritas! (Apparently, calories DO count when you're on vacation!)

2. I had cheesecake for breakfast. (Don't Judge me!)

3. Earlier today my friend's 68 year old mother got more spins on the wii fit hula hoop challenge then I did. (Go Granny!)

4. For lunch today, my neighbor and I split an order of chicken nachos and a pitcher of margaritas. Again, don't judge! I read somewhere that 12 o'clock is the new 5 o'clock. (Actually, I just read that here...after I typed it. LOL!)

5. I had to take a nap today because my long day of cheesecake, wii fit and lunch wore me out.

6. I'm already planning the best time for tomorrow's nap.

That's how I spent my exciting day. Now, I'm going to get some more sleep. Enjoy your day!

The links should all be working now. (Fingers crossed!) Let me know if you still have trouble downloading.
