Two days in a row!

Wow, I can't believe i'm blogging two days in a row! I think that's a record... at least as of the last few months lol. It helps that i'm trying to compete with Doris's blogging momentum - keeps me motivated lol.

I did this layout with Fancy Pants' About a Girl line, and I printed the "Hello my name is" stickers off of the internet. I did this layout for a challenge over at the awesome Cartwheels blog to do a layout introducing yourself. I had SO much fun with this! It had been awhile since i'd done a "me" layout, and i'm really glad I did :-) The pictures were taken by Cheryl during our blinddate last week, so a big thanks to her for her awesome photography!

The (very long) journaling reads:

i am 35 years old. i still feel like i'm about 25. i am 28 weeks pregnant with my third child. i still can't believe i'm going to be a mommy to 3! i've been married for 8 years, and in two years, tony and i plan to renew our vows in vegas with elvis. i have a round dark birthmark on my inside right calf about the size of a large pea. i was in a baton twirling league as a kid, as well as cheerleading. i also played softball for years, basketball for one season, and i danced for 8 years. i'm still horribly un-athletic. i dropped out of a bowling league when i was a kid b/c it interfered with my saturday morning smurfs cartoon. i am horribly disorganized. i wanted to be a vet when i was little. although i loved swimming as a kid and was very good at it, i'm a very timid swimmer now. i always had the feeling that i would have twins. i used to write poetry when i was younger. i love chocolate, belly laughs, spring breezes, family bike rides, nursing my babies, sand in my toes, scrapbooking, playing rockband (especially the beatles version), and reading (to name a few). i worry more than i should. i love spending time with family. i am incredibly thankful that my parents and brother are nearby, and i am so very lucky to have them. being a wife and mother are the most important, difficult, fantastic and fulfilling roles i've ever had. my husband and my children make me blissfully happy.

Last up, I have another Fancy Pants layout using the new Like Father, Like son line. I handstitched the star and then misted around it. I probably will not blog again before I leave for the beach tomorrow, so don't get too used to this daily happening lol. I'll be back early next week, though!

Have a fantastic weekend, my friends!
