It's so funny! Everywhere we go, my daughter captures peoples' attention. We went to Mickey D's for breakfast this morning - YAY for hotcakes - and the owner came over to talk to her... she scored some free coupons and a little toy camera. Our next stop was Home Depot where some salesman for water softeners stopped us. After telling me that I've got a little heartbreaker on my hands, we got a free bottle of water to go with our (I mean "my") popcorn!
This evening, we went out to dinner at the Texas Roadhouse. Luckily, we didn't have to wait long to be seated (thank goodness for calling ahead - the wait time was about one hour!). But once we got to our table, she did it again. She made quite an impression!
Okay, enough bragging. Here's something I won't brag about. We have had 6 storms in the past 6 weeks. And we are expecting our 7th on Wednesday. The last one dumped more than 17" of white stuff, and it's a huge mess! Our street was not thoroughly cleared, and there's just so much of it that the roads feel so narrow. Hubby has to work through the bad weather, so it's up to me to shovel our walkway, driveway and sidewalk. Otherwise, strange people come knocking on my door asking if I will pay them to take care of it. So when the princess naps, I shovel. Fun, fun! <insert sarcasm here> I got lucky this time around - I was out shovelling while the neighbor was out with his snowblower. I take back all the bad stuff I ever said about him! (Just kidding, I have nothing bad to say... yet.) He cleared my sidewalk AND the back part of my driveway. That easily saved me a back-breaking hour. The snow was so thick and heavy! I don't know how much we're expecting this time around, but I'm hoping it's not a lot. I'm tired of it already!
I finished up two layouts today that I have been working on. I'm really happy with how they came together. Anna makes it easy with her beautiful kits! There are always so many pieces to play with, so many possibilities. The first is created using "Fresh," which is available at Delicious Scraps. The alphabet is from "Bliss," also available at Delicious Scraps.
And the second is created using the "Sweet Valentine" mini kit, available on Anna's blog. I was trying to snap a photo of my daughter's new teeth, but instead, she kept lunging forward, reaching for the camera. I didn't get the shot I wanted, but the picture turned out so cute, I just had to scrap it!
And that's it for tonight! I can't believe January is almost over. We're inching closer to spring, and I can't wait!
