Some Oldies

For some reason, for the last week or 2 I've been using my old desktop. Perhaps it is the nicer keyboard and mouse? Or more probably it is the fact that the connection speed is much faster down here. I was reluctant to "work" on it for the last year because it is located in our basement, where we have boxes of old stuff that we haven't parted with, yet. Well we cleaned the basement a little and so my old trusty friend was more accessible and also more appealing. Well, as usually happens when I switch computers, I found some fun "old" pics. Let's reminisce, shall we?
My first apartment in Ruston, Louisiana. They tore them down last year to make more room for the university apartments...or maybe parking. Either way, its no longer there! Sadly, this place was decorated nicer than I feel my house is.

My awesome cake I made in a Wilton class in 2007. No. I haven't made one since. But I'm feeling inspired after seeing this. I took this class so I could do kids know, when I get around to actually having kids.
From college, when Oscar was not quite a year old. Napping on my face was apparently the most comfortable place in the apartment. LOL! I don't look bothered by it, but then again I was probably crashing from an all-nighter!

I found several cute pics of the cats too and plan to share them later this week or early next. You don't want to miss the adorable-ness, trust me!

Jillian Michaels Just Kicked My Butt!

This past week has been bad for me. I have sat on my behind and eaten junk the whole time. So today I needed a change, so I hit the On Demand button and found Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred. Oh. My. Goodness! My arms are jiggly like jell-o. My legs barely made it down the stairs. I may need a lift to get back up them. But it is awesome. And I am doing it again tomorrow! I found the 2 weeks to a new you tab too. If I can stick with this for a mere 2 weeks, I know I will see results. I need a boost to get back in the groove. I haven't posted a weigh in lately since I've been losing and gaining the same 2 pounds over and over. So Jillian Michaels and FitTV are going to kick me back in gear. Wooo!
Don't have Comcast On Demand? You can shred too!

CTMH Constant Campaign

I don't usually blog a lot about the deals that Close to My Heart is doing, but I could NOT pass up sharing this one. We are celebrating National Stamping Month! I just LOVE it when we get free stuff just for buying stamps that we love. YAY! For spending $60 on My Acrylix stamp sets, you get a FREE card kit to make the cards shown above (suns August 18-September 30). Oh yes, you get EVERYTHING you need. How sweet is that!?! Or if you just have to have it you can purchase it for $39.95 in September. (But seriously, isn't it better to get it free?) Or you can host a gathering and when your sales reach $400, you get it free!
Let me tell you what's in this kit:
1 - My Acrylix Everyday Celebration stamp set (EXCLUSIVE, can't buy it in the catalog!)
16 - standard sized greeting cards and envelopes
Plus, everything you need to complete 16 gorgeous cards, including instructions, (so you can create them over and over with different colors!) papers, AND two colors of distressing inks. Did I mention you get ribbon AND Mini-Medley accents as well to further beautify and embellish? Well, you do! I am so psyched about this deal! If you want more info, leave a comment (with email) and I'll get back to you to answer any questions. Thanks for reading and remember the "Delight in the Everyday"!

I've been Tagged!

How did that happen? I was running really fast! LOL. But seriously, my new blogger friend (can I call you my friend?) That Design Gal tagged me for a fun "getting to know you" post where I share 6 random things about myself. She is too cute, plus she has adorable we are totally best friends! You need to go check her out!

Da rules:

1. Link to the person or persons who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write six random and/or revealing things about yourself.
4. Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them.
5. Let each person know they’ve been tagged and leave a comment on their blog
6. Let the tagger know when your post entry is up on your site.

Numero Uno. I have recently become obsessed with Bob Ross and the Joy of Painting. I should say re-obsessed since I enjoyed it when I was little AND when I was in high school. My newest goal is to get up the guts to find and attend a Bob Ross-style painting class. Never painted in my life, but he just made it seem so relaxing (and easy, which I know CAN'T be true) Plus he has an awesome 'fro. Admit it. If you could be as chill as Mr. Ross and have a super awesome 'fro you totally would!

#2. I am also obsessed with my garden. It is the first garden I have ever grown myself (ok so the hubby did help a little...but really it was ALL my idea!) I check on it every day, sometimes more than once, just to make sure no rabbits are in there munching on my broccolli again. Silly rabbits! Why don't they go get a bowl of Trix or something? I have oodles of pictures of it, of which I have spared my lovely readers, and only posted twice about it so far. Look out though. We've been harvesting and my corn is taller than me. So there will be pics up very soon!

III. I love the crunch noise a Dorito makes when you bite into it, but only when I am really hungry for them. And I tell whoever is with me eating them (usually the hubs) how much I enjoy that sound. Over and over again. Until the bag is gone (snack sized bag...not saying I couldn't eat an entire regular bag myself, but those days are behind me. I have control now!) Oh and only the Nacho cheese flavor. That pic makes you hungry for them huh? Me too.
four. My cats just stole my rubber band ball. I kid you not. While I was sitting here one of them took it and now Oscar is carrying it up the stairs and batting it down the stairs, chasing it like a maniac, then carrying it up the stairs again. I better save it before anyone gets hurt. Or eats a rubber band. Buttercup ate one of my hair things once. Don't worry, it came out. Or else I wouldn't have known she swallowed one. Ew!

quatre. We call rubber bands gumbands here where I live. I refuse to say most of the slang, but I will slip and say gumband once in a while. I also say pop instead of soda and from my days in Louisiana I say y'all. So y'all ought to come over sometime and have a pop with me. :)
And Last. I may be a self-proclaimed cat person, but I love daschunds. I want one. so. bad. A long haired miniature daschund. Any color. I'm not picky. Named something like Gabbie or Peanut. They are just so silly and cute looking. I can't help it. Now to work on the husband...

Ready or not, here I come!

Everyday Jane
My Heart Scraps
A Hook A Line and A Girl
Ragdoll (cat) Mom
The Two Twins
YOU! Yes, you with the questioning look on your face. Go do a fun post about yourself.
