Leap Day....and I have off. How much better can that get. Extra day and time for anything.
Well Andrew had his first driving instruction with the teacher. He got the female instructor so that was probably a good thing. He was so nervous she said that she had to grab the wheel twice to keep from going off the road. She probably thought that we didn't take him out at all and we accumulated 11.5 hrs at home but she says it is not enough. Before the next lesson he needs to have 20 hrs. total. OK, what am I paying for driving class for if I am the one teaching all the driving. You'd think $324.00! amounts to more time on their end for the driving part but NO!! Sorry Vent Over!
So this afternoon when he gets home from school (if he is not feeling too bad) we will take a drive to the pharmacy to pickup the pictures that I ordered. I really don't want to take him to that busier part of town but he has to drive. I swear my whole head will be gray hair by the time he gets his license. And trust me I am pretty grey already so that is not impossible. I just hide it well, LOL!

Otherwise I am working on adding my layouts to my blog again. When I changed the background it took everything off that I had added to it. What a pain.
So what did you do exciting on your Leap Day Friday???

Little Ice, Little Snow - Our first of the winter

Well as they say we have a "weather event" happening. Not too bad with just an inch of snow and freezing rain on top but hopefully it will warm up and I won't have an issues taking Andrew to work tonight. The snow plow just came through the neighborhood so that will help. I am sure the major roads are fine. Maryland does a good job with them.

So this weeks blog challenge from is as follows:
List 5 Pros and Cons of Winter.....
1. Winter is beautiful when it snows and you don't have to go anywhere
2. I love big sweaters and sweats, they hide a multitude of sins.
3. The cold air kills germs
4. My skin is dry so I purchase more lotion, retailers love me.
5. The night sweats aren't as noticeable when it is cold.
1. Dirty snow is the grossiest
2. I eat more in the winter so come spring I can't wear cute outfits
3. Cooped up in a house leads to more germs
4. Cabin fever
5. I hate wearing coats, hats, gloves etc.

A new scrapbooking company that debuted (is this a word?) at CHA in California was Pink Paislee. They are getting alot of notice and I can't wait to see all their new stamps, etc. Here is their information for their latest live pink community. Hope the code works.?!

Visit Pink Paislee

Eventful Friday

I really won't go into all the details but let's just say that daughter Heather who was leaving for a long weekend trip to visit an Army friend in St. Louis fell asleep last night and didn't get her suitcase packed, clothes washed or her shower. Needless to say this morning was full of alot of tears and me resorting to packing/washing what she needed and then she had to come home for it instead of leaving right from work for the airport. But I am glad to say that she got there on semi on time and made her flight. She forgot a few things but nothing major and I hope that she has a nice weekend.

Well I have had a nice two days without having to cook dinner. Dan took me out to dinner for Valentine's Day and I had (2) White Chocolate Espresso Martini's. That was one too many! LOL Then tonight we went out for a person who was leaving his work that I knew also from a while back. So it has been a nice two days of eating out that we haven't done in awhile.

I hope to finally do some scrapbooking this weekend as I really haven't been in the mood. Hopefully the "Love Crop" at will give me some inspiration to get something done.

My good friend Jayne tagged me with a fun little game -- here are the rules --

1. You have to post the rules before you give your answers.
2. You must list one fact about yourself beginning with each letter of your middle name. (If you don’t have a middle name, use your maiden name).
3. After you are tagged, you need to update your blog with your middle name and your answers.
4. At the end of your blog post, you need to tag one person for each letter of your middle name. (Be sure to leave them a comment telling them they’ve been tagged and that they need to read your blog for details.)

J = Just like to chill and watch a movie
E = Easygoing (most of the time)
A = Always looking for time to scrapbook
N = New to blogging (still working out the kinks)
E = Everyday I love getting a Caramel Latte
T = I have a sister named Tonya
T = Love to write to do lists and then cross off the items
E = Enjoying my part time status at work (which is back to full time after Andrew graduates in June)

Jayne I am sorry to say that I can only tag (3) people as I don't know enough people to match all the letters in my middle name.
I tag: Jen, Amber, Nancy

Super Bowl Sunday

I really don't care about it but many people do including my husband and daughter. I would rather be scrapping but since I am not up to par today, I don't feel like doing that either. So I have been watching some of my Netflix DVD's that came on Friday. I love to watch movies and Netflix is the best thing we ever subscribed to.
I just watched Premonition with Sandra Bullock and it seriously confused me.
I was hoping to work on some more layouts but I think I used up alot of mojo on the 31 day Layout a Day Challenge that I actually did finish. So I am pleased with myself and actually filed away those layouts on Friday too which is a big accomplishment.
Well all you football fans enjoy your evening watching the Super Bowl and I will just have to see what I can find on another channel tonight.
Here is a layout I did recently of our trip to California.
