I have switched sites! You can now find me here!

I LOVE the arrival of Spring. Here in Oklahoma it's not much a gradual change like it was back in Michigan. Let's compare the two:

You get months of snow...
A few days of warmth...
A few more weeks of snow...
A few days of warmth...
A day of snow...

A few months of cold weather...
One good freeze...
60 degree weather...
70 degree weather...

Its very odd has taken some getting used to. I can honestly, 100%, say that I do not miss the snow. I miss the white at Christmas, but I do not miss the snow at all. Sorry to all my snow-bunny friends but I would not trade you. (Here I sit saying that and we will probably get PCS'd to Alaska now.)

Its finally getting warm here and we all want to be outside more, which is a mixed blessing. More time outside = less time scrapping. It's ok, I will have plenty of time for that soon.

ScrapStreet Star starts this coming Saturday (March 22nd)!! If you are interested in some friendly scrapping competition, join us here: Rules & Info. Check out all of the audition round entries here: Audition Gallery

COLOR of my life


I LOVE color! My life totally revolves around this and music. And to be perfectly honest, I believe that both go hand in hand. When I hear music, I SEE colors. Soft and slow music makes me envision blues and greens, while fast, upbeat music pours reds, yellows and oranges into my subconscience!

Just like the pop of color off a picture...I adore layouts or pictures that are almost entirely black and white with one HUGE burst of color. Doesn't it just SING to you?!

6. At one time, I had 8 piercings. (4 in one ear, 3 in another and one in my tongue)
7. My favorite number is 7.
(I am breaking number 4 because everyone that I know who has a blog has been tagged ::giggle::)

Week in Review:

This week was long. Totally slipping on my diet but Weight Watchers is tomorrow morning and hopefully I can renew focus.

Diana and Ary are coming over tomorrow for a playdate with Matthew and I. Should be an AWESOME time! We are planning on taking TONS of pictures to use for the Star Contest. We did this same contest last year but I almost feel like we have grown so much in the past year that we actually have a shot! Should be some "fierce" competition and a whole lot of inspiration for future layouts! If you get a chance, check out the audition gallery and you will see what I mean!


-We found out recently that our next home will very likely be Fort Riley, KS. Can you say..."ut, oh, Toto?"
-Matthew has sprouted about 2 inches in the last two months and most of his clothes are almost too short for him but too big around the waist.
-Momma has taken his inches and added them to her waistline (not quite but it feels like it).
-Daddy will be away from us from June of this year until almost the end of November due to training. ::cry::
-Max refuses to be potty trained.
-Mojo thinks its funny.
-I have done a few layouts that I absolutely LOVE recently but cannot show you due to publishing :)
That is about all I have for now. This post has been brought to you by the letters "H" and "S" and also, the number "7". Thanks to Janneke who pointed out that I was continuing to depress people with my previous post (you were right LOL!). Now I leave you with some inspiring words from those who parted before us but left us with knowledge to live by:

"When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us." - Helen Keller

"The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty." - Winston Churchill

Have a great weekend and remember to keep your eyes open for the possibility in anything. Remember this, God never takes something from us unless he is opening your hands for something better.
