Back Again Today, I Promised!!

Here I am again, two days in a row! I've been looking through pictures and don't have as many as I thought I did, but am still going to share quite a few. I got my new camera in late January, so other than the SuperBowl pictures they're all with my old camera. I do love my new camera though, it's a Kodak Easy Share Z1085 IS. It's not exactly the camera I wanted, but I couldn't afford the camera I wanted and this one has everything that I was looking for, so I went for it. I did get a really good deal on it though and it's so cool. Yes, I am a dork. lol

I don't know if you've seen the movie The Christmas Card or not, but it was filmed on location or at least is supposed to have been filmed in Nevada City, California. I love this movie and so of course when Richard was on vacation the week after Christmas we went to check out the covered bridge and Vietnam Veterans Memorial. Much to my surprise when we found the location of where the Vietnam Veterans Memorial was, there was nothing there but a cement landing!! Oh well, was a little disappointed, but I got over it. We did go on the bridge that was in the movie, but it's not a bridge that's in use, so that was fudged too!! We did have a fun day and took lots of pictures.

This picture is of Richard standing where the Memorial was supposed to be.

This is the bridge that was in The Christmas Card. Cody rode over it on his motorcycle when he was coming into town.

This sign is at the end of the bridge and thought it was pretty neat!

And this is a sign about the bridge itself.

Here are the SuperBowl Pictures. We went to Dan and Sylvia's house down the street and have a really good time and as you'll see in the pictures, there was so much good food! Dan and Sylvia are really big Pittsburg fans, so of course everyone else was cheering on the other team, but they were really good about it!!

This is the just some of the food that was at the party!

This is my hubby Richard!

Here are a few friends outside chatting and watching the game.

That's all I'm going to do right now, but will be back later this week with some more pictures. I've been pretty horrible about taking pictures and I could just smack myself. I've been trying to get a good picture of M&M, but she hates the camera and when she sees it she takes off running. I've been trying to be sneaky, but it's not working. I'll keep working on it though, I'm determined to get a good picture of her and now with the face recognition and other features in my new camera, you can actually see her face and not just a black blob! They're not actually good pictures since she's running away, but she at least looks like a dog now.

Thanks again for stopping by and talk to you soon!

Been MIA, But I'm Back!!

I can't believe how long it's been since I've posted anything, it's almost embarrassing! I've been out of everything for so long, but I'm trying to catch back up. I feel like I've fallen off the face of the world and trying to find myself again. The holidays seemed to come and go so fast and life is just rushing by so fast, but I think it's starting to slow down now, at least I hope it is. I started working again typing, which is a good thing, but balancing life and work again were really hard, but I've got it down again now.

We lead a pretty boring life these days, just working. I hadn't even scrapped or done anything since before Christmas, but spent the whole day yesterday in my craft room finishing up some things that have been on the table what seemed like months. If you didn't know already, I didn't make the design team that I went out for and neither did my friend Amanda, which was really disappointing. Amanda did make it further in the rounds than I did though, which was great for her. But alas, neither of us made the final cut, but life goes on. I do have craft books all over the place though and trying to get my creative juices in gear and am excited to get new things started again. I'm even going to start back crocheting my poncho this week since I don't have work (hope I remember how, it's been a while). lol

Right now I feel the need to finish things that I've started and de-clutter! Our house is so small and things seem to be 'stuffed' in every nook and cranny and it's getting on my nerves. So this week I'm hoping to spend a lot of time going through everything and hopefully getting rid of a lot of 'stuff'. We've been saying we're going to have a garage sale, but now is the time. I have boxes full of 'stuff' in my craft room already that have been waiting for probably 2 years now and am so sick of working around them. So I'm hoping to add to the boxes and have a garage sale in a month or so if the weather permits.

So I'm sorry for letting my blog go neglected for so long and I promise it won't happen again! I'll be back tomorrow and catch up some more and add some pictures that I took with my new camera!! Yes, new camera!! I'll share more about it tomorrow. hehehe

Thanks for stopping by and see you later!
