Changing Direction

Some of you may have wondered why I stopped posting on this blog.  I am now devoting all of my efforts to my new blog, Fairytale Frosting.  In addition to scrapbooking, I found a love for cake and cookie decorating.  I thought I could maintain the two blogs, but after awhile I realized that's exhausting!!  

I decided one blog would be best, so now I blog about my baking adventures, cooking, crafting, home decor and yes, scrapbooking.  

I hope you'll join me at Fairytale Frosting!

Thank you for your love and support!

30th Birthdays and a Citation

January 2 2011
Sookie chillin on the comforter while I remake our bed.

January 3 2011
I'm teaching Caesar to walk on the treadmill. He's got a lot of energy but its too cold to take him for long walks. So far, its going pretty good.

January 4 2011

January 9 2011
Yep, I got a speeding ticket. My first ticket in YEARS. I was doing 72 in a 65. The cop who pulled me over said he clocked me at 84. Then he wrote me a ticket for doing 78. Special. Whats even better....the ticket doesn't say how much it is. I have to wait 10 days and then can log onto a website to find out. I called the county and they wouldn't tell me how much it was either. They told me just had to sit tight and wait the 10 days. How lame is that?!

Ending and Beginning

December 26 2010
Where I spent my entire day after the holiday weekend.

December 27 2010
I am approaching my 30th birthday. I saw this cool collage that a husband made for his wife's 30th. It was a collage of random 30's. I thought "hey I'm going to do that for my birthday!" So I wandered around the house looking for something with a 30 on it. This is all I could come up with. This idea was harder than I thought!

December 28 2010
We decided to let Sookie's fur grow out. I bought her a little clip to keep it out of her eyes.

I spent my evening babysitting this little guy! Isaac is such a flirt!

Favorite things, Post-its and a Photo Booth

December 12 2010
This is one of my favorite ornaments. It reminds me of tartan, which reminds me of Scotland. And I miss it there.

December 13 2010
Caesar loved the space heater. He just parked right in front of it, enjoying the warmth.

December 14 2010
This is my butterfly brooch. I love this brooch. Its actually a replica of one Arwen wore in the Lord of the Rings.

December 15 2010
These post-its covered this guy's locker. At first I thought it was sweet, and then I realized it was a little creepy.

December 16 2010
This was on a piece of equipment in the hangar at work. It made me laugh.

December 17 2010
My friend Heather and I using the holiday photo booth! At my recent holiday party I created a "photo booth" in our office, for guests of the party to take some fun photos!

Holiday Fun, Bag Room and a Snow Storm!

December 5 2010
Finally! My Christmas tree is up. I'm usually a day after Thanksgiving kind of girl, but my week was so hectic I didnt get it put up right away.

December 6 2010
St Nick came to visit my puppies!

December 7 2010
Heather and I took a Holiday Candy Making class at Whole Foods!

December 8 2010
This is one of the bagrooms at MSP. I am working some overtime on a special project. I am working 3rd shift hours/12 hour days. I spend 8-9 hours a day sitting on a conveyor belt like this one. Good times.

December 9 2010
Today we moved to another part of the bag room. I basically get to spend my nights watching these guys work. I am escorting these technicians in secured parts of the airport. So I have to be with them at all times. Its easy money, but really really long nights.

December 10 2010
The snow is sure coming down.....this is what it looked like in the middle of night when I let the dogs out.....

December 11 2010
And this is what it looked like the following evening. We got over 17 inches of snow!! It is the worst snowstorm in over a decade! Of course we didnt have a snowblower either. David sure did a lot of shoveling!
