I know I have been a little MIA. I am in the waiting room of the hospital right now waiting for my mommy, she is having her last aneurism surgery. WHEW!!! Right in time for tax season. She does taxes, so now that means that I do taxes too. And school, work, attempt to clean and scrap when I can. It's o.k. it's mostly just for the rest of January and February for me, then life can get back to "normal". I have some stuff to share...
Last Friday the 23rd was my current sistahs birthday. Ann has amazing talent check out her blog. I sent her a flower pot card that I found here. I was going to upload my pic, but it must be on my stinkin jump drive that I left at work. Check out Ann's Blog. She was so nice to post a pic and say some very nice words.
I am in the final 2 weeks of my Interpersonal Communications class, so creativity will be flowing very slowly until it is over.
Su! Updates: The Love You Bundle sale ends on the 31st of January. If you were even thinking about ordering....Hurry Up!!!

12 pounds are gone!!!!!
It hasn't been too bad. A lot of water and going to the gym. Next week I promised to start doing something other than the tredmill. Hey, it may be silly but the chubster hasn't hardly moved from the computer and scrap table in almost 3 years. Yearly scrapbook convention doesn't count..LOL!!!
Gotta go, homework and don't forget my SU! Party on saturday!!!!

They love to make cards with me. I just thought I would share this funny story and to brag about my husband for a minute. Even took the boys to grocery shopping by himself while I went to get my membership at the gym. I am a very lucky girl. He even cooks almost every night and cleans both bathrooms.
Thanks for letting me share. love, carrie

I don't have anything creative to share with you today. I just had to pop in and let you know that I have been sooo busy. I have made it to the gym every single day and have made it to the week mark of not having one piece of candy!!!! That is HUGE for me!!! I will have to bring my camera to work so that I can take a pic of the biggest candy bowl that sits right next to me. Michelle (Owner of the candy bowl) doesn't just fill it with crap either. It's the good stuff...twix, Reeses, Kit Kat...mmmmm. I will not eat anymore candy!!! I will just open up my fiber bar and be content with that.
Overall I think I am doing very well. Yesterday and today seem to be the hardest for me. I will just drink a bottle of water and get past it. I am not going to weigh myself yet, although I can feel it. I am going to try and wait for my 30 day mark.
I hope everyone else is doing good on their resolutions. Thanks to Kimmie for starting this little weight loss group and all of the great support!!

Sorry, got sidetracked....Go check out Carri D's Blog she is giving away some blog candy. I totally want to win this candy. It's really hard to find pretty stuff in boy colors and that is what she has. I love it! Hope you all are having a great weekend!

I have a very scary (100 lbs.) amount of weight to lose. I know, everyone seems to think that what I weight is not true....oh trust me....it is! I about had a heart attack when the "meat head" at the gym put me on the scale. After I said "What the F&^%@!!!, he laughed. DUDE!!! I wasn't kidding!!!! Really?...What????? I went to work, because I don't own a scale ( I know, it's probably the reason for my surprise) I double checked my weight at work. It was true!!
So, my first steps is to add water and leave the candy bowl alone at work. Before yesterday I can't honestly tell you when my last drink of water was. HORRIBLE, I know. Melissa told me I needed to poop at least 2-3 times a day. WHAT!!!! Sorry, it may be TMI, but sooo true. I will let you know how things are going.
In scrap news....Since I no longer fit into my workout clothes, I am not allowed to spend any money on anything stamp or scrap related....GASP!! Boo Hooo. I will get a new pair of shoes and workout outfit out of this deal. Hubby says it's to see if I am really serious before I get into one more thing. I have to agree. I can do it! I am hoping he was only talking about like a week or so. YIKES!!!! I might want to check out the fine print!!! I will let you know. As for now, I am going to clean up my scrap room and see what I have to work with. Teee Heeee** He doesn't remember that my SU! order just came just over a week ago and My order from SweenSassy is on it's way...Heeee Heeee.
Thanks to Melissa, my legs are spaghetti...ooooo spaghetti yummmmmy....FOCUS!!!! I will probably be sore tomorrow. That's o.k. No pain No Gain!!!
Thanks for listening. Love Ya!

Off to do laundry and get ready to get back to work :-(
Every single day I get on the computer and scrap with my real sister who lives in Arkansas. We always use yahoo or stickam and scrap with our webcams on. It is sooo much fun!! I am always just grabbing my blue robe when I get cold and the other day my brother in law asked if I was going to get dressed or just wear the same thing as the day before? LOL!! Duh! Brother,I changed....sorta...I showered and just took my hubbys p.j.'s out of the dryer and wore his while mine were washing. HAHAHA!!!
Another part of the card is the slippers and the blue shirt under the robe. I didn't just do a color mix up and decide to color it blue...almost. I couldn't just leave it white and have everyone think I was naked!!! LOL!! Under my robe is my new Wii pajamas that my MIL got the whole family for christmas and they are also blue. She was sooo super smart!!! LOVE HER!! She got me and hubby the same size so I could alternate washing and wearing. TMI ALERT!!! Shhh...he only wears his boxers....hehehe...mostly. My MIL is also a slipper and P.J. FANATIC!!! Seriously!!! Although I do not have bunny slippers, they are white Abonomable (SP?) Snowman slippers from the Christmas cartoon Rudolph. I had to...uhh emm...we wore them when she visited from Washington and we did Black Friday shopping. You HAVE to wear themed P.J.'s when shopping the day after Thanksgiving. I flocked the bunny ears to add some deminsion. I made this card for her, it totally fits her. That's the reason for the "missing you" on the front of the card.
I know, really long blog post. I loved this challenge. What a great idea!! The paper is DCWV and glittered, basic cardstock and handmade flowers out of mulberry paper....leftover from my "Tear Bear" attempts. Uggghhhhh...that's a whole other story! Anyways, I just love this color combo. Hot pink and blue-ish-teal?? I can't ever seem to get away from the pink, at least it wasn't green....again.
P.S. This also goes with the new Mail it out challenge for SNS Yahoo group...wooo hoo I am doubly challenged....oppps (Insert Scooby Doo tilted head here saying Ruttt?)
Sorry So Long....Happy about playing Challenges,
