Sweet Happenings!

This is definitely going down as an all time favorite layout of mine. I applied for a Design Team position and I made the first cut. The second cut was to create a project about yourself that had inchies (1" by 1" squares). This is what I made. was announced today. I made the new Design Team for Scraptivity! Yay!! Things will officially get started in November and I am so excited!!

Take a picture mom

We went to the mall in Antioch the other night so I could do a secret shop there. They have this fun little playground for young kids. Rebecca really enjoyed running around and jumping. She climbed up on this turtle and said, "Take a picture, mom." So I pull out my camera and take a picture. She is a good reminder to take pictures, because I forget all the time.

The Hunger Games

I read this book this past month. Very good! I believe it is classified as young adult fiction, but I could be wrong. I'm currently reading the second book in the series, Catching Fire. I am a fan! I love having people to share books with!
Also I set up a poll on the right to help me name my blog. Please vote!

So I was at the store the other day and thought, "hey pickles sound like a yummy snack." We rarely have pickles at our house, because I am the only one who eats them. I truthfully think this is the first time I have bought them and had them in a fridge since Steve and I have been married. So obviously this is a monumental event, that needs to be recorded. Anyways, so I'm putting the groceries away and I thought I would just pull a little pickle out (they're all little because I got the snacker size...they're the perfect size). I thought for sure that it not being cold would have no affect on the taste of the pickle. I was so WRONG! Did not taste anywhere near as good as the ones do today because they are nice and chilled. So, note to everyone out there, don't do it. Don't eat a warm pickle (deep fried is different), it just isn't as good as the cold ones.

Fun with My Bear

My dad, Bear, came to play over Labor Day weekend. On Friday, we went to Tilden Park and rode on the train and merry-go-round. Then we went to a candy store in Lafayette, which was quite impressive. After naps, we went to Chuck E. Cheese because it makes Rebecca happy. Except the big furry Chuck E. Cheese scares her and she started crying (didn't get any pics of that though). Rebecca had so much fun with her Bear. It was not stop playing for her. "Come on Bear. On your bed." Was said over and over and over. Thanks Dad for coming! We really enjoyed your visit!

Blog Name and Win

I need a blog name. I don't know what to call my blog and "my blog" is just not creative enough for me. So please give me some ideas! I'll give you a personalized prize if you come up with my blog's name!! Personal or crafty since I do both.
