Happy Birthday Miami!!!

Download wordart here

The city of Miami is now 114 years old! Alot of people don't like Miami, but I think it's the best place on Earth!

No matter what day of the week it is there are some things that are constant in Miami. I guarantee that you can always find children laughing, salsa music playing, a couple holding hands by the water and some Cuban gentlemen playing dominos.

Life here is good!

I am proud that I was born here, wish that I had grown up here and glad that I came back as an adult.

Tonight is the start of the 48 hour mini lobster season here in Florida and the guys are all out on the boat trying to catch some lobster for us. I've got my fingers crossed in hopes that they bring some home! YUM!!!

Still no camera

Download wordart here

Well, my camera still hasn't shown up so I'm still bummed. The good news is that I get to buy a new camera now. Any suggestions on what I should get?

I even got a refund on my car insurance to help pay for the new camera. Apparently, I overpayed the premium so they sent me a check refunding the extra I paid. Guess how much I got? 90 cents! That's right---90 cents. LOL! It cost them 35 cents to mail the check to me so I have to ask----Why did they bother? LOL!

Waiting For The Stork by Scraps of Ellay

Download wordart here

I'm really excited about the newest kit by Scraps of Ellay! It's called Waiting For The Stork. One of my friends may or may not have told me recently that she's 7 weeks pregnant. (she did) She may or may not be trying to keep it a secret for now. (she is) That means I may or may not be one of four people who know at this moment. (I am) LOL!

Take a look at this kit preview...

Trying not to panic!!!

Download wordart here

I know I've told you this before, but I'm going to say it again----I am a dork!

I wanted to load the pictures from my vacation onto the computer today so I could play with them and realized that I didn't have my camera. I don't have it and neither does Orange Croc guy. My neighbors have been gone most of the day, but as soon as I find them I'll be asking if they somehow picked up my camera instead of theirs. I called the hotel and of course no camera was found or turned in.

I'm so sad! I don't care about the camera, (I want a new one anyway) but I had so many pictures! I want the pictures!

So, please, keep your fingers crossed in hopes that my camea somehow turns up!

I'm home!

Download wordart here

I'm home and I'm glad. I love traveling, but it's always great to get home again! Of course, we got in this morning as south Florida was getting the rain from Bonnie so my little street was flooded again. Thank goodness that has passed over us! These storms aren't supposed to come here until after school starts so I can get a day off. LOL!

As soon as I dig the camera out I'll share some of the photos with you. We spent time in Arizona and at the Grand Canyon. Beautiful!

I've spent most of the day doing the laundry and catching up on emails. If you're waiting to hear from me and haven't...I promise I'll get to you soon. I was going to order my welcome home fajitas tonight, but I was too tired to even do that. Can you believe it?!?!? I'm not worried though cause it gives me something to look forward to tomorrow. LOL!

I'm going to watch some of Big Brother now before I go to sleep. Enjoy your day!

Rainy Days

Download wordart here

Well, my neighbor and I were planning on going to the movies today, but it was raining so we stayed. I was making fun of her and told her to pull out her wii walking game since she bought it for rainy days. She did. I have to admit it was a little addicting. I would have preferred the walk to the movie theater and back, but this wasn't such a bad backup plan.

The only complaint I can make is that you have to earn points to unlock new songs and since she hasn't had it long there aren't a lot of songs that have been unlocked. We had to turn the game off before it played Vacation by The Go Gos one more time. LOL!

So far, I'm keeping my lost bet promise and haven't had any chocolate since just before midnight Monday night/Tuesday morning. Last night I couldn't sleep because I could hear the mini Snickers bars in the kitchen laughing at me. They can laugh all they want now...In 12 days they're mine! LOL!

Oh man, I'm in trouble!

Download wordart here

Earlier today I lost a bet and because someone (and by someone I mean me) was just a little over confident I'll be paying for it for the next two weeks.

I won't tell you what the bet was because you'll just laugh at me and say that I deserved to lose. LOL! Anyway, if I had won I would be sitting pretty for the next two weeks, but since I didn't I can't eat anything chocolate for the next two weeks.

Now, everyone knows that chocolate is very important to me. I honestly believe that chocolate makes everything better!

Had your heart broken---eat some chocolate
Have a headache---eat some chocolate
Feeling bored---eat some chocolate
Having a bad day---eat some chocolate
Having a good day---eat some chocolate
Etc, etc, etc...

After I lost, I tried to clarify exactly what no chocolate meant---Are we talking chocolate candy? Chocolate cake? Chocolate milk? Chocolate ice cream? Well, I got an answer---ABSOLUTELY NO CHOCOLATE AT ALL!

Since, I had already eaten a mini pack of M&Ms during the execution of the bet (LOL) my punishment won't be over until July 27th. It's going to be hard, but I will survive! Mainly because I'm not going to give my friends the pleasure of saying that I couldn't make it.

Now, I just need to clarify if this bet is still counts when I'm not in Miami because I'll be leaving town two different times before the two weeks are up. LOL!

If I make blog posts that are completely non-understandable during this time, don't worry---it's just the withdrawals. LOL!

Butterflies Are Free Revamped!

Scraps of Ellay has revamped one of my favorite kits---Butterflies Are Free. It's such a fun kit and it is huge! There are 17 papers, 69 elements and 2 full alphas!

Here are two layouts I made with the kit. These were both make for challenges at Stuff to Scrap.

I used a template from the Karly's Dollies Template set for Vincent's layout. The templates are also available in the Scraps of Ellay store.


On Friday, I'll be posting a Butterflies Are Free QP freebie on the Stars of Ellay CT Blog so make sure you pick that up too!

There should be a law....

Download wordart here

Was there a comedian whose tag line was "There should be a law?"

Today my neighbor came over to show me her latest wii workout game. It's one where you pretend you're walking on an island while it tracks how many steps you've taken and how many calories you've burned. While you're walking you earn points that you can use to "unlock" things like park benches, street lights and palm trees to "decorate" your island.

Well, here's how part of that conversation went...

Me: You realize we live on Miami Beach, right?
Her: Yes.
Me: (taking her hand and walking her to the window) What do you see out there?
Her: What are you talking about?
Me: That's water and that flat gray stuff by it is called a sidewalk and people WALK on it. Now, if you don't want to walk by the bay, you can go eleven blocks in that direction (pointing behind us) or ten blocks in that direction (pointing beside us) and you're at the Atlantic Ocean. You can use the sidewalk or the boardwalk or even walk in the sand. And...you'll see lots of hot young guys with their shirts off!
Her: (laughing) Quit making fun of me! I can use this when it rains or when it's just too hot to go outside.

I had to admit that she had a point about the rain and the heat in the summer and she had to admit that I had a point about the hot guys with their shirts off. I still say there should be a law...lol!

Sick Days?

Download wordart here
Earlier today one of my friends caught up with me and asked if I wanted to go to lunch. Well, of course I did! LOL! We walked down to the 8oz Burger Bar and of course ordered burgers. YUMMY!
After we got there my friend asked if I have ever called into work sick just because I didn't feel like going. Well, I pointed out that of course I had because everyone knows I hate wasting sick days being sick. He said that he had done it three times this week. I had to laugh when I pointed out that today was Thursday and that Monday had been a holiday. He asked me what my point was. LOL!

Back to normal

OK, things around here are back to normal. I'm over my bout of sadness and self-pity, What If Guy has gone home, Orange Croc Guy has gone back to trying to reclaim the high score on his wii games and Dwyane Wade is staying with the Miami Heat.

This morning I made pancakes all by myself. LOL! I bought the mix in the yellow container that you add water to and shake. Mine weren't like the ones you get at the Waffle House. Mine were crunchy. Have you ever had crunchy pancakes? They were....uummm....interesting. Gross, but interesting. LOL!

Tonight I was on my own for dinner, so I ended the 27 day dry spell and ordered fajitas! And, yes, I have been counting the days since I last saw the cute delivery guy. Other delivery guys visit me on a regular basis, but it just isn't the same. LOL!

The cute delivery guy didn't pose himself in a cheesy way this time, but his smile was just as big. When he didn't hear any comments from the peanut gallery the cute delivery guy asked if I was by myself. I very quickly let him know that I had kicked my friends out so I could have some peace and quiet. He laughed. Apparently, he still remembers what happened the last time we ordered fajitas. LOL!

I'm going to get some sleep now. Enjoy your day!
