I've Been Tagged & Some Other Stuff

My sister Suzee TAGGED me:

*Open your pictures file on your computer

*Grab the fourth picture in the fourth file!

*Now Post it and blog what you remember about that picture.

This is my awesome hubby Jason with his favorite radio personality Colin Cowherd.
During the Super Bowl here in Arizona this year, the ESPN guys were broadcasting downtown close to Jason's work. Lucky man got to have his picture taken with my husband.

I only know 3 bloggers I could tag and Suzee is one of them, so I'd love to see what Margaret and Leigh put up on their blogs. :)

And now some other stuff:

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving already! It should be a wonderful day. We have our brood for the morning only so we are doing a Thanksgiving brunch. Once the kiddos leave for the day, Jason and I are going to laze around on the couch watching football and having a delicious pizza dinner. I am very excited! The clean up will be a dream and I will not have to complain that I over-ate.

Hope you all have a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving!

Just A Little Crush?

Is it wrong to be dreamy over a fictional character? Because I've got it bad for Edward Cullen. I just saw Twilight today (with my REAL love) and the more I think about the movie, the more I believe I will go watch it again. I am re-reading the book because it's just that good.

I realize they did have to use some creative licence to put a 498 page novel into a 2 hour movie.

Let me just agree with Suzee; if you want to see a LOVE story, this is it. Just because Edward is a vampire does not make it a vampire story. So go see it so you might understand just a little about why I feel the way I do about him.

Hated It

I kept looking at the layout I did for the State Fair and I totally hated it. So I went back and used the same photos in a different layout.

Still doesn't seem complete but I like it much better. More fun?

Another Page

I was able to scrap another page. (I scrap lifted a layout that I saw at After 5 Designs but cannot figure out who did the original.)

I need to print out my layouts and just put them into a general theme.

Tonight I have to drive all the way out to my ex's house and pick up the boys. It's about a 100 mile round trip. Thankfully I only have to do this once every 6 weeks.

Hope you all have had a great weekend!

Some Scrapbookin'

YES! I finally forced myself to sit down and scrap a couple layouts. The first one is my State Fair layout...

And the second one is Jacob's cast layout...

That's it for today's post. Not much else is going on right now. I'll try and make up some stuff to tell you about soon. LOL!

My Favorite Thanksgiving Recipe

Thanksgiving is right around the corner. I'm not sure how it got here so fast. Our Thanksgiving is going to be a quiet one this year. Being a blended family, our children have 2 homes in which to celebrate all the holidays. Actually, my boys have never been with me on Thanksgiving since their dad and I split up. We did that because we wanted our divorce to make as small of an impact on our boys as possible and that meant that they would continue the tradition of having their Thanksgiving meal with their dad's family. In exchange, I got to have them every Christmas morning. It's worked out okay. I think that Jacob and Jared are old enough now to make some changes and so I'll need to talk to their dad about that.

Jason and I will have all the kids on Thanksgiving morning and we will do a big brunch for them. Then they will go to the other parent's and have the big meal. Jason and I don't plan on making a turkey with all the trimmings. The one dish that I MUST have is Sweet Potato Casserole. It is my absolute favorite! I make it every year and have shared our family recipe with many friends. This year I made a digital recipe card to share.

I used the freebie kit Everescents by Liz @ Sweet Digi Scraps and freebie alpah by Ziggle Designs

If you think you don't like sweet potatoes, give this recipe a try. It's almost like a dessert.

What Kind Of Blogger Are You?

You Are a Life Blogger!

Your blog is the story of your life - a living diary.

If it happens, you blog it. And you make it as entertaining as possible.

You may be guilty of over-sharing a bit on your blog, but you can't help it.

Your life is truly an open book. Or in this case, an open blog!
