And the sky was made of amethyst. And All the stars are just like little fish.

Mondays are good days.

Got to sleep late. The kid was at my mom "Mustang Sally" and Pappy's house.

Went to the bank to acutally put money in... which is nice.

Spent the afternoon in the pool with my sister, brother, neice, nephew and Mustang.

About to kick out some lemon pepper salmon and snow peas, carrots and broccoli. delish.

This Is Me is getting back started up! Check it out!

Kristy totally blogged me. She rocks so well.

AmyTan totally has me addicted to non-needle crocheting... while I am watching TV. Also check out her fabulous threads here.

Hope you had a great Monday and a short work week. xo

Here is my This is Me entry:

It's not a put down. I put my foot down..

In the glass above, there is kool aid. And I am drinking it.
Mixed with Splenda, of course. This is because I am on a new quest
to have the bangin'ist body in all the land by next year. Sarting one
bad carb at a time. I have had no sugar/bad carbs since last Sunday.
And, so far I am ok. I am doing the Abs diet. Chris recommends it
to all his people. So I am checking it out.
So, yeah. My husband is officially a certified Personal Trainer. We got
all his stuff turned in last night. He is pumped. It means so much to
see him happy and finally doing what he is so passionate about- for a
job! It does not get any better than that. And he is working for Snap
... which is such a great company. And loving it.
So We are starting up the This is Me Journal again on Monday. Someone very cool will be visiting for a guest
challenger. That has me totally whacked out with happiness.. So if you journal
or scrapbook or both, join us for some fun.
I have an awesome show coming up this weekend... working with the fabulous super
fantastic Fabian. Which is probably like the biggest honor
ever. Working with this guy is like the high of all highs for me.
He has been a mentor to me since day 1.. and now, to think that I will
be on stage coloring hair along side him is just such an honor.
So, yeah.. I will let everyone know how that goes!
Well, I am off to rest! Have a good night.

Inspiring Minds...

was so sweet in Nashville. However, I am very
selective of what I read, because honestly,
I am not a "reader"*thanks KC for video blogging it makes
life easier for me*. I mean, I can read. But I am not
into reading like most people. I am more into photos and
videos, not reading. That being said, so when I came home
from Nashville, I decided I would just read a little about
the people I met in Nashville. Mostly because I am nosey. And when
I know someone, I want to really know them. Like about their kids,
spouse, etc. I find peoples lives so interesting. So anyway, *I know I ramble
too much.* Back to KimberlyB- when I came home and started reading
about her I could not stop! This is not common for me.
She is absolutely amazing. What an inspiration as a mother, wife,
artist and Christian! So, the above layout was one of her challenges
I just had to do. I urge you to take the time to read her blogs,
you will be touched and inspired! I am so happy to have found her
and totally treasure her friendship! So, Thanks Kimmie and I hope we
can be friends for life!

Inside Outside Come Around! Who's That? Brown!

Ok. So, I have totally sucked at the whole blogging thing. So, this time I am vowing to try to blog every day. I want to print these and make a cute journal with them .... so that is my new goal.
So, this past weekend in Nashville at SIStv weekend totally was phenomenal. I mean, seriously. I was going to video blog this, but after 14 takes and Ella and Rigan interrupting every single time, I gave up. But there are lots of things I have to say, so pop yourself some popcorn sit back and relax. This might get good. <3
First off a bit about me that has happened since the weekend.
First off, my hair is back to its original dark brown. While the photos and slideshow
were great, I did not realize that I looked like the character "Powder" from the
movie "Powder." That was bad. Real bad. So, this morning I got to work a hour
early to color my hair. It is mucho better. Also, during the pin the whatever on the
layout. I totally did not realize my pants were unzipped until after I sat down. So,
I hope everyone enjoyed the extra little peep show they got at my expense! LOL
Mad propz to JJ and KA for a totally kickass weekend. OMG it was great.
-JenniferP- I love you. For real girl. You are even better in real life. I am just sorry that we did not have more days together. And, I am totally looking forward to spending time with you in the fall when I come to the big D. And, I hope that our girls can grow up being pen pals and stuff. You are the best and I am sooo happy that I got to sit by you, room with you and everything.
Sasha- you are the funniest person in the world. I am so glad I am on team Sasha. You are hillarious and it made my day to be by you! I can not believe I found someone that shares my absolute love for spicy mustard. I also want you to know that I am working on my back stroke and hope to have that down before too long.

*I want to see the bewbie/grits photo please!
*I was slightly pissed that I did not get to do my second acapella karoke song. The F! with the mike totally blew me off. But, its' all good. I will sing two next year. Just sucks for everyone there b/c I totally had something awesome planned for the finale. Fight for your right was totally just a warm up song!
*The above is a layout I did for Martha's F! hour! That was funnn.
Last but not least, hello KC! If you are reading this, I *heart* you!
