Monday is here again!  Time to start this week and I've got lots, and lots to do.  So I might as well start it off w/ something fun.  Welcome to:
*I have this idea that I'd like to lose a few lbs.  I'm so all about the working out, but can't seem to get the food thing right.  It's really a bummer considering I could probably drop the weight if I would just make better choices.  This is something most people struggle with.  My goal this year is to lose 25 lbs. Not completely hard to do, very possible.  I did go buy some fruit and veggies yesterday and plan to make my lunches again, that way I'm not stuck eating McD's, Potbelly and Salsarita's all week.  Gotta take one week at a time. 

*So a couple of weeks ago I ordered from Avon this nail color:
These are not my nails....just makin' sure you know, why I think that's important I'm not really sure!  lol
But before it was delivered to me I was shopping at a corner store and found this color that I just had to have:
Again, not my nails.
Then I get my avon order like 4 days later and I'm like "huh", I must really like this color. I wanted to try something different I'm usually a red or pink nails kind of girl.  Anyways, it looks great on my toes.  :O)

*Do you ever think of what your name could have been?  I do, and I can't imagine being anything else then A'ndrea (pronounced:  On-dree-a not And-dree-a).  The only thing I'd get rid of would be having to correct people all the time.  Have you ever looked at someone and thought she looks like a ____________.  I have, and I know its not totally weird because I've had people say to me before he doesn't look like a Grant, he looks more like a Bob.  Weird topic I know, but what do you think my name would be if you hadn't known?

Well keepin' it short today, hope you have a wonderful day and a great week!  I'm going to make the best of it.  Later!

Hi to everyone!

*Had a wonderfully great scrapbooking kind of weekend.  I was able to get 11 pages done.

*I am doing my first 5K run on April 16th!!!!  The Downriver Dash is raising monies to help w/ child and family programs at The Guidance Center, this is a wonderful place and I'm doing this to help support because they have helped in our transition of understanding my ADHD son and helping him succeed in everyday life.

*My little 6 year old, isn't much into music, not sure why because myself and his dad are big music listeners.  So this morning on the way to my mom's house, I said, "wanna hear some music?"  Odd question because he always asks for us to turn it down or off.  He says, "no" then says, "actually do you have Michael Jackson?"  I just smiled I am big huge fan of MJ music, so I found OFF THE WALL in the visor and we jammed all the way to grandma's. 

*I watched 4 movies this weekend, it was great because I don't get alot of time to watch movies and relax w/out someone calling for me to help them w/ something.

Spring Bling Part 2

Well our weekend is coming to an end, we are stuffed just finished breakfast.  I just finished my last couple of pages so we can get on the road early.  Missing my little Mister Man mostly, especially since I scrapped of him all day yesterday, and that cute smile of his.  Sorry for all the clutter surrounding the LO's but hey, I was busy, busy creating.  11 LO's total, not too bad.

So all the pages I did of him were from Kindergarten, trying to get caught up and I did, but I still have plenty of that year to scrap.  I did do one more page for a 8x8 album that I bought yesterday.  Its a Star Wars album and its perfect, we have loads of that goin' on at our house.  Lucas was named after George Lucas.  I know nerd, right! 
Have a great Sunday!

Spring Bling!

Good Morning!
Doing some scrapbooking this weekend w/ my sister Lisa.  We were challenged to add lots of bling to our LO's.  She really went for it, I did some as well.  I feel like I don't have all the right photo's with me that could use bling.  I was planning on getting caught up on Mister Man's school albums.  I had a couple of pics that I could use for our family album, so today I will focus on the school book.  This is what I created last night:

So there it is, I'll post again later as I create more pages.  Have a great weekend

*Yay for short work weeks, I have Friday off.  Sweet!  Even better on Friday morning my sister and I will be driving up to Houghton Lake area for a scrapbook weekender.  This is a new place for us, we are looking forward to something new.  Best part its only $90....and you know how pricey these weekenders can be.  We look for cheaper ones, and we've come across this one.  The theme is Spring Bling, we bought feather boa's (Friday night contest), lots of bling and we are excited for a great time.  Check them out on fb, Scrap-tastic Events. 

*I met with a friend yesterday for lunch, we haven't seen each other in almost 4 years.  We had a falling out and it was time to bury the hatchet and move on.  We've been friends since high school. We shared some laughs and caught up on everything.  It was good to laugh with her again.
That is definetely back in the day. 

*The news is simply depressing.

*That darn alarm clock that my "non-husband" has is killing me.  For 8 years I've listened to this thing go off starting at 430am, every weekday.  He doesn't start work until 715am so why have that thing set up so early.  What kills me he doesn't get up until 620am.  So I have to hear that thing, loud as can be, it drives me nuts.  Whomever invented snooze deserves a punch in the head. 

*Moving is in my near future, well within the next 6 months.  Gotta get busy, searching to buy our first home is nerve wrecking, but its time, and definetely needed.  Looking forward to the change, we've been in this rental for 8 years.  Not going to be sad to leave in the least.  We are going to start packing up stuff now.  Let's move it yo!

Flashback Friday

Well I've had an overwhelming past week.  Things have been good and busy.  Before I get to this weeks FF I wanted to share my stair climb results.  I had practiced each weekend (6 weeks w/ Kimmy) before the actual climb and our best time was 36 minutes.  We did the climb last Sunday and we did it in 27 minutes.  That is huge we blew the old best time out.  It felt great!  My co-worker Sanja was part of my team. We've signed up for next year already, one of my sisters joined also.  We hope to double our team next year.
MY STAIR LADIES, before the climb!

MY STAIR LADIES, after the climb!
We all stuck together and made sure we made it to the top together.  As a team we wanted to raise $600, we raised $1010.  Wow!  Next year we plan to raise $2000.  Anyways, after our climb we were on the news see below.  How much fun was that?  Lots!  Afterwards we went to a local bar and celebrated.

Love my teammates, who will join us next year?

                                                I get to scratch this one off my Yearly Ten list.
                         Thanks to those that supported us and the American Lung Association.
