Ta Da!!!


Lookie here, I just re-did my scrapbook/everyday doings blog to a 3 column like my book blog, which by the way, if you haven't become a follower of, HURRY UP!!!  Most of us like to read, some more than others, but you can get some really good book ideas from  myself and the other awesome book blogs I follow.  What a wonderful world of blogging that genre is!!

Anyway, the new header and background is courtesy of a great designer Itkupilli over at  Cute*n*Cool Blog Stuff.  Go and check out her work.  I think her style would fit you Miss Elaine big time!  She has a gorgeous blog over at Divita-Knies Art.  You've been quiet E, come back your work is beautiful and missed!!

I am not at home, I'm still in N.Y. with Mama, she comes home with me tomorrow.  I am so very happy.  The 12th was the one year anni of my Dad's passing and she had a Memorial Mass said for him, and then we all went to his favorite restaurant afterwards.  He was so loved and what a testament to the great person he was to see that love still expressed.  Mom didn't want to fly alone her first time out to me without him and that's fine, cause the thought of seeing her come down the stairs of the airport by herself would have been too much reality smashed in my face as well.  I still am bitterly raw by it, still scratching my head.  We are all very excited she's going to be with us and that's a very good thing.  I think we'll go to the Bowl and catch a nice summer show, she's never been, and also the Relands Summer Theater Festival, that is awesome!

I have been having a nice visit.  I don't like being gone from Hubs so long.  It really bothers me, and him too, but seeing family is great.  All the cousins love playing together and seeing my nieces and how big they're all getting makes me realize how quick time goes by.  The twins are just hysterical and they crack us up.  We spent a couple of days in Pa with my brother as well it's so peaceful there.  We didn't do anything special like we did last year, and that's ok, we didn't go for that.

On Saturday my scrap sistah Serene from Shades Of Blue came with her husband Jim, her son Logan and Logan's friend Katerina(hope I spelled that right).  We went to the feast, had some zepoli and fried oreos.  Wow!  It's so nice to see her.  I love the fact that we have a relationship born out of a  love from scrapping which we shared online at a scrap mag's board and daily emails, and that it has grown to be something so much more.  My hope is to meet the rest of the sistah's Lisa, Courtney and Elaine, as well!!

Holy Moly!!!  True Blood is looking freaking HOT!!!  This season is blowing last's outta the water and we're only at #2.  The coming attractions for next week look fantastic.  I gotta say that stupid Snoop dog video at the end was so cheesy.  Snoop just doesn't do it for me.  We even got a little peek at Godric again last night.  Of the whole season 2, Godric was the true highlight of the show.  His ending just had tears pouring down my face, even hubs said that was an awesome episode!

Oh another thing, some of us scrappers are familiar with the project 365, which means you take a pic a day for a year.  Well Dedra Long over at Between Us is doing a project that will be much less daunting.  She hasn't named it yet, but kicking it off on the 26th of June, pics on the weekends for a year.   I am doing it and Yay my scrap sistah Lisa over at Life In Flip Flops is too!  How about the rest of you?  I think this will be a good thing, especially as far as taking pics, a new perspective on shots.  I'm looking forward to it.

Well, I'll wrap it up at this, when I get home I have a lot of scrapping to catch up on, I miss it : )

    Haven't seen Trueblood. Have you tried Moonlight? The main character is delicious eye candy.

    I'm thinking about trying a photography challenge this year. Perhaps a weekend trek is just the thing to get started. I'll check that out!
