Recap of Week - January 25 - January 31, 2010

Well, there was just not a whole lot happen this week.  I've been thinking about it for a couple of days and just nothing much happened this week other than going to work and coming home again.

On Friday night, we did manage to agree on not returning to a restaurant.  Usually, one of us doesn't want to return but the other one liked it.  Not this time.  We went to a new Japanese restaurant on Friday night and we were very disappointed.  Would much rather have gone down the street to the new Thai and Sushi restaurant where the food is excellent.

On Saturday, David spent some time working on the backyard and I worked on straightening up the computer room.  We then headed to Cowboys in Ft. Pierce for lunch.  They just opened and the BBQ was awesome.  I am not usually a pulled pork fan, but there's is excellent.  I would highly recommend them.  Can't wait to go back.

Last night, we watched Meet The Robinsons.  I really enjoyed.  It has a happy ending for just about everyone.  My kind of movie.  I'd seen parts of it before, but this was the first time I saw the whole movie.

Church today was shorter than usual.  Shorter than it was planned to be.  We were watching a broadcast to the Southeast region (South Carolina, Georgia and Florida) of the church when our satellite system at church decided to have issues and we couldn't finish the broadcast.  So, church was over by 11:30 a.m.  I have to admit, I could get used to that. lol

Yes, I skipped Monday - Thursday.  But really, nothing happened worth mentioning.

Before I go, I just finished this layout for the Eye Pop Template Challenge at Scrappers Online.  The kit I used is Naughty or Nice by Karrah Fredericks.

Have You Been to MScraps?

To start,I have another layout to share. This is a picture of my sweetie Sazume. She recently celebrated her 6th birthday (as determined by The Humane Society). She's been with us for a little over five years. She is such a sweetheart.

This layout was created using Spring Memories by 4 Shades of Blue Designs, Cindy's Ribbon Stash by Michelle Batton and The One I Love alpha also by Michelle Batton.

I suspect y'all are wondering why my title mention's MScraps. Well here's why.

The store will include fabulous designers like Bren Boone, Kelly Mickus, Lauraskathi and one of my favorites, 4 Shades of Blue Designs.

And Spring Memories is the first kit that 4 Shades of Blue will offer in her new store.

And for those of you wondering, 4 Shades of Blue Designs will continue to have her store at The Digichick and the products at the the stores will be different.

I hope everyone has a great weekend.  I hope to be back tomorrow with a recap of my week.  (I saw this on another blog and thought it was a great idea.)

Sharing Layouts Again

It's been a long time since I've shared any of my layouts on my blog. But I am going to start doing that again. I love creating layouts, so I want to share them with my friends.

This layout is about David's motorcycle and I think the title says it all. I will have to admit that I also enjoy the motorcycle. Would never have believed it, but I do.

This layout was created using From Boy to Man by Michelle Batton and Captivated Visions and From Boy to Man Stacked Papers by Captivated Visions. The Font is HM - The Pato by Heather Manning.

This next layout contains a photo taken right after my most recent haircut. No big story behind this photo, just a pic of me.

This layout was created using She's So Krafty and My Acrylic Alpha both by 4 Shades of Blue Designs. Also uses Photo Holders - Bone from Merkeley Designs.

That's it for now. However, I will be working on more layouts this weekend, so I should have more to share early next week. (And I might just have a layout to share on Saturday morning.)

Day 11 - Day 16 (January 11 - 16, 2010)

Day 11: The Golden Corral Finally Opened

Yes, I know that doesn't sound too exciting.  But it's been more than five years since they originally erected the "coming soon" sign.  They really redefined that phrase.  This is my desert, chocolate volcano cake..

Day 12: Tennis Shoes For Too Long

I rarely wear anything but sandals.  Yet I wore tennis shoes or boots for almost two weeks straight. Boy was I glad to return to sandals.

Day 13: Return of My Camera

On the 4th, my Canon XS started making its way to Virginia for warranty repairs.  It returned to me on the 13th.  Kudos to Canon for the quick repair work.

Day 14: Helping with the Children at Church

My husband and I helped out by watching the children while the women had their monthly "Chicks in Aprons" class.  This is my husband playing ball with one of the kids.

Day 15: Date Night

From this point on, I resolve to take a picture related to our weekly "date night".  This week we went out for sushi, because we had a gift card.  Boy was it yummy.

Day 16: Lorenzo

This is our cat Lorenzo.  I needed to take a picture and she definitely needs to be in my "year of pics".  (Yes, Lorenzo is a girl.)

Day 7 - Day 10 (January 7 - 10, 2010)

Day 7: Hot Chocolate

This is a photo of just one of the many cups of hot chocolate I've purchased lately. And here is my rating for the places from which I've gotten said hot chocolate. Number one is Dunkin' Donuts. Number two is McDonalds. Number three is Starbucks.

Day 8: Mafia Wars

Yes, I have become obsessed with Mafia Wars on Facebook. So, I thought it only fair that it make it into this year's pics.  If only my IRL bank account had the kind of money my Mafia Wars account has.

Day 9: Cleaning the meetinghouse

In my church, the members take turns coming and doing light cleaning at the meetinghouse. Yesterday it was our turn. This is a picture of David mopping one of the bathrooms.

Day 10: Ice from the water bucket.

When David went outside this morning, he found this layer of ice in a bucket of water.  This should not exist in South Florida. lol

Day 3 - Day 6 (January 3 - 6, 2010)

Day 3: Doesn't Sazume look so cute under the covers?  And trust me, she did not want to leave.  Way too cold around here for her liking.

Day 4: All the Christmas decorations have been removed from my office at work with the exception of this lone little tree.  I need to find someplace safe to keep it until next year.

Day 5: This is the temperature our car was showing when we arrived home at 7 p.m. last night. Talk about cold!

Day 6: Yes, that is ice on my car. No, I haven't left South Florida. At 7 a.m. there was ice on both of our cars. Not frost, but ice. That is just wrong.

With the exception of today's "ice" picture, all of my photos so far have been taken with the camera on my Palm Pre. It's really a pretty good little camera.

Infinite Power of Hope

I watched this video today and I was struck by what an appropriate message the video shared. So, I wanted to share it with you. It's only a little over two minutes long, so please take a moment to watch. I don't think you'll regret it.

Day 2 - January 2, 2010

Yesterday, David cut down a bunch of Florida Holly that was in our backyard.  I then helped him haul it to the curb.  This is a picture of some of the holly branches waiting to be picked up.  (It looks pretty, but it's not native and it will kill out any other plant.)

It's 2010 and I am back.

Okay, I gave out early in 2009. However, I am starting a anew in 2010. And here is my first pic. It's of my first sushi of 2010. :O)

Welcome to 2010

Happy New Year everyone!!  I'll admit it, we were boring last night.  I fell asleep early.  Now David, he did make it until after Midnight.  And I did wake up to give him a kiss at 12:01 a.m., but truly not an an exciting night. lol

I have already completed my first layout of the year.  It's a look back at 2009.  The layout was completed for the Year in Review challenge at Scrappers Online.

You can see the full credits here.

Now I am off to see if David wants to go eat Sushi.  I know I do. :O)
