I think I just lost a couple years of my life...

Yesterday I was watching a movie on Netflix and had the brief thought that I hadn't seen Tangie in a while. Figuring she was under the bed or downstairs I finished my movie and went to the stairs and my stomach dropped. The door was open. And the worst case scenarios were running through my head. Luckily, after 30+ minutes of searching, one of the yard guys chased her back under the fence and I got my baby back.

I do have to say that once she was back under the fence and saw us she had this look that was like, 'Oh hey guys, what are you doing?' So cute and innocent looking...Anywho, now she attempts to get out every single time I open the door so I think that the squirt bottle is going to have to make a reappearance.

Next post I have some cards to show you!

Passover is OVER!!!

OK, so I kept passover for maybe a day or two this year and called it quits due to taking antibiotics. If I'm taking them I think that it is fair game to eat whatever I darn well want to including toast/cinnamon rolls/etc. But my brother kept it and to break it we went out on Monday night to get burgers. And fried pickles. I got a turkey burger, he got a buffalo burger and we shared the fries and pickles. The lighting wasn't the best and the pictures were taken with his iPhone.


I'll admit as a pickle lover I had never tried fried pickles until sometime last year and they are AMAZING! Though I'm pretty sure that I consumed my entire month's worth of salt intake in that meal.

If you ever have the chance to go to the Twisted Root while you are in Texas, do!

New Dies

Yikes, it has been way too long since my last post. Sorry! I actually hadn't been feeling myself for the past few weeks and started some oh so fun antibiotics last Monday to get me all better. The jury is still out on if it will work. Anywho...

I got two new dies recently for my little Cuttlebug.  Labels One and Labels Eight. Don't they look all pretty and new?

Well, I broke in the largest of Labels Eight already working on a little project. Doesn't look like much at the moment, but I'm not posting the complete project until the receiver has well, received it. I also have so many ideas for these shapes so be prepared to see a lot more of them in the coming month or two. And I have to say I am in love with the Spellbinder dies. They are amazing!

Well, the title pretty much sums it all up. Cheesecake. It was fun to make, tasted amazing, and didn't last very long.
