WHERE have I been?

So, I have been very bad at keeping up with my blog. Or very busy? Well, I wouldn't say "busy", but I had other things on my mind and going on in my life, but I think I'm back to "normal" Here are some pages I had done in the past month and just hadn't uploaded here yet. Two were for Helen's blog DT call and the two others were more recent ones I got to work on. I did do one more a couple of days ago, but I'm keeping that one to myself since the journaling is kind of private. So, I think I have a total of 5 LOs to add to my count which I believe puts my yearly LO count at 134. I'll have to double check, but I'm pretty sure that is what it's at.
On the workout front, I am FINALLY under 170! Woohoo!!! 168 to be exact last time I checked. God bless a dear friend of mine who said I looked like I weighed 148!! That would only put me 3lbs away from my goal weight! Good to know that I don't "look" like I weigh as much as I do. 23 lbs to go...I can do it...even if it takes me six more months...I CAN do it!
Um...nothing else really to update right now. At least not that I can think of. So, until next time...I hope everyone has an awesome start to a new year full of possibilities!! :)

A Few Good Friends.....

So, we were supposed to have our second church scrapbooking group yesterday, but Cheryl had cancelled it when they were expecting rain/snow. Sadly, it ended up being rather sunny yesterday...cold, but NO snow! :( So, at the last minute, I decided to invite some of the girls over to our house to work on our cards anyway since I was really looking forward to it. Thankfully, Laura, Liz and Yocasta were able to come along with Chon of course! lol We set up one of my 6 ft tables in the kitchen so we had plenty of seating for everyone! We ordered pizza and Laura and Liz brought some yummies :) We had a BLAST! Lots of laughing and chatting and a little bit of card making too! I am really just SO glad that I have made such a wonderful group of friends at church! It is really such a blessing! :) Liz always keeps us laughing. And Yocasta is a NUT...she's my kind of gal! ;) And Laura, well she is just my bestest friend EVAH! lol :) I am just so glad that we got to get together after all! I did about 26 cards...not sure if I'm going to need some more...have to look over my list. Laura was quite the little card maker for it being her first time. And Liz made some CUTE cards with some sequined trees on the front. Chon's of course were very loverly and vintage-y. And Yocasta got one she was just such a blast to have here! I did a mix of stuff, but I was pretty happy with all my cards. I need to take some pics to upload. I also got a page done sometime last week...using some Thanksgiving pics...used one of Helen Croft's sketches for it and I really loved it. Went by M's today and got another box of the DCWV cards, but solids this time. I also got some cute lil Christmas Snag Em' stamps and some Mary Engelbreit dimensional stickers to share w/the girls ;) Oh, and a K&Co pad of paper...Terri Conrad's Sweet Life. It's not a Christmas pad, but I loved the colors and they matched just what I wanted to use to make a Christmas mini using a BoBunny cb album I got from back on National Scrapbook Day. I had intended on buying this MME pad at M's that had some of the Be Merry papers and some from one of their other Christmas lines, but looking at it more closely, there were more papers that I did NOT like than papers I DID like. Also picked up a pack of these K&Co diecuts from their Evergeen line. We did a little shopping for Mikey's birthday next week, went and got Miguel and Mikey haircuts, and did our grocery shopping. Picked up some food on the way home then just hung out and watched some tv. Right now, Miguel is asleep on the sofa and Mikey is at my table sticking some Spongebob stickers I got him at M's :) Heading to bed in a bit because I am sleeeepy. Chon and the kids stayed here last night and we didn't go to bed until around 1:00. After Miguel left around 5:00, I laid in bed until 7:00 because I couldn't to back to sleep. Then didn't end up waking up until 10:00, but I feel like I didn't sleep well :( It's so nice and warm in here and I'm so bed is calling my name... Nighty!! :)
