On Monday we leave for Washington DC...I am SO excited! I can't wait to see and do EVERYTHING! I have a tiny giveaway for you. Dr. Hubby and I are taking 2 people with us. Can you guess who those 2 people are? One guess per person...first person to guess both people correctly will receive a post card from DC!
Have a great weekend!
This is an ATC (Artist Trading Card) I did for an AMR swap. I made 20 of them...some had striped paper instead of flowers. We were to incorporate our word for 2009 on them.
Speaking of "Sassy"...I couldn't resist photographing Wild Child in her hot pink wig. She looks like that little girl from Lazy Town! LOL!

Round 2 proved to be a little boring and was filled with mediocre singers. I don't have much to say except for 2 things...
Adam Lambert rocked! You know he had to be good when Randy compared him to Edward Cullen! AND...
A special thank you to mommablogsalot for this cute award. Now I must pass it on...so if you look and you are in my top ten on my side bar...then this award is for you! Thank you for your comments. I love every one of them. Especially the ones that make my head swell a little...LOL! I truly have the BEST bloggy buddies in the blogosphere!

Here are my thoughts on this season's The Bachelor...
Jason is a great looking man and all the girls were very pretty. I think from beginning to end he gave each girl a fair chance. There were some girls he REALLY should be glad he got rid of (Mean Meghan, Egotistical Erica, Stalker Shannon, No Brain Natalie)
My fave girl was Steph. She was so classy and sophisticated. Her story was inspiring and her gentle spirit was a breath of fresh air on that show! However, I don't think she belonged with Jason. I would love to see her as the new Bachelorette!
I really liked Jillian and it was so hard to watch her heart break. I think if Jason was feeling they were only friends then he should have hopped out of the hot tub and taken a cold shower instead of steaming it up more!
I read a spoiler a few days ago about what happens in the finale...I will not share it or spoil any secrets, BUT if it was true I will be very irked.
I don't have a favorite out of the remaining 2 girls...it's all in Jason's hands. Enjoy!
TONIGHT IS THE OC HOUSEWIVES REUNION SHOW 9PM EASTERN!

The necklace came from Deb and pulls the whole outfit together.
This is a layout I completed for AMR's color challenge this week. The challenge was to use color based on the theory gallon-quart-pint. I haven't got the picture developed yet, but here is the one I will be using on it...

We called a hotel that the hospital had suggested...drove across the river?...and checked in. Can you guess which Hilton family hotel we are in? The photo above is a hint!

Loved the results show last night! I was so glad to see Alexis Grace, Oil Rig Guy, and Danny make it through! Let me just say that Alexis rocked even better than the night before! What a voice! I also think they pushed Tatianna as much as possible to see how she would react on Live tv...she held it together pretty well for a drama queen.
At our home, Tatianna (I mean Manga Dork) was obviously upset about Anoop going home. She voted 100 times (not 75 like I accidentally posted yesterday). She wore black to school today because she is in "mourning." LOL! I keep telling her that they will pull him for the wild card show!

My vote for best girl last night was Alexis Grace...she's an adorable mom with a great voice!

I owed Manga Dork an outfit for a weight loss challenge I had given her last month. She found a cute one at American Eagle...and these wedges match perfectly.
We enjoyed the movie Confessions of a Shopaholic! It combines the first two books. Becky Bloomwood is as likable and quirky in the movie as she was in the book. Luke was adorable too. But while Suze was perfectly cast I felt they totally missed with Tarkie. In the book he is kinda gangly and odd and in the movie he was slightly cute and slightly odd. I also did not envision Joan Cusack and John Goodman as her parents. Enjoyed their performances...just not a fit for the parents from the books. I loved all the colors and fashion...Becky's wardrobe is fantastic...I want the anchor necklace! The teens and tweens we had with us loved it too. A great movie to see with your daughter or best friend. I highly recommend leaving the hubby or boyfriend at home.
What shopping trip would be complete without a great "find." Well...the most noteable "find" was a not so great one...
"these are so great...LET'S MAKE THEM IN RED TOO!" BTW...notice the nice gingham lining!
Happy Tuesday! OC HOUSEWIVES SEASON FINALE TONITE...AND American Idol's first round of 12!
