Mojo finally strikes!!

I tried to post two times yesterday and Blogger kept eating them!!! Let's see how this goes!!

The mojo fairy finally decided to stop at my house!! It's been SO long and boy was it fun!! I did 5 layouts in 3 days!! That is almost unheard of!!!

Here are 3 of them!




Taught my sheer album class at mlpa today. I had a great little group of ladies!! Everything went so smooth!

Just finished up working on my next installment of Technique Toolbox - Grungeboard! That stuff is so fun to work with!! Lots of possibilities!!

In other news, we found a used car for Chris to use on his long commute days. During his rotations that are an hour plus away, we'd spend $75 to $100 a week on gas for the truck!! That's $300-400 a month just for gas!! So, we decided it was time to find a "beater". It's not so much a beater though. We got a 1998 Ford Escort ZX2, silver in color. It feels really strange driving a car! I haven't driven one in over 3 years!! It runs well and looks nice too, just hope it stays that way, I get a little nervous about used cars!! I haven't bought one since I was 16!

Yesterday was also our 14 year anniversary!! Wow!! We started dating on February 8, 1994! That's a long time!! So worth it though, he's totally completed my life in those 14 years!! We'll celebrate our 9 year wedding anniversary on May 8th.

Hope everyone has a nice weekend!! It'll be filled with good 'ol family time here!! Can't get much better than that!!

Thanks for reading!! :D

LOL! We went from a Suburban to a Pontiac Vibe about a year and a half ago for the same reason. Much better gas mileage but boy was it strange adjusting to something so little!
