Football Season...Fall Crafts

Well it's officially Fall...so that means craft time at my house! I "borrowed" this cute craft from My Heart's Desire. Since I am a UCLA Alumni clearly this football isn't for me...it is for my twin sister who is a USC grad...bless her heart! :) So what do ya think?! Super easy and super cute!

Happy Birthday Twin

Well my twin and I celebrated our *39th* birthday this past weekend! The celebration started on Friday at work. My office clerk bought my pink roses and surprised me with a beautiful cake.
On Saturday I decided to make my twin a cake. I ended up making two cakes, one round cake and one square cake. I used cake tattoos. Since my parents are out of town we ended up having a small BBQ with a small group of friends and family. The cake, with the edible tattoos were pretty yummy! :)
The cake and party continued when I got to work today. One of my tutors, who is also a sorority sister, made me this beautiful pink and green cake. The cake was delicious. It was so pretty I didn't even want to cut it! :) My assistant principal continued with the pink and green theme and gave me some Godiva chocolates and truffles.
I had an amazing weekend full of cake, cake and more cake. I am pretty luck since I am only working 4 days this week. On Friday a co-worker and I are off to Vegas for another co-workers wedding. I return Sunday night and Monday morning, my nephew ERD and I are off to our NYC and Boston trip! I can't wait...

Summer 2011

Well its summer once again. Summer means vacation fun! This summer I am taking my nephew,ERD, to New York and Boston. I am super excited! I was in NYC two years ago on a field study trip for work. That was the same summer I then flew to Tennessee and met my nephew for our Nashville, Franklin and Memphis trip. When I was in NYC we had a jam packed schedule. I am hoping to replicate the sites and scenes with ERD, who has never been to NYC. A few weeks ago I was in Boston for an educational conference. It was my first trip to Boston and I loved it. It was perfect that this conference was in Boston, since it gave me a chance to get to know the city before ERD and I return in a few weeks. I think he is going to really love this summer trip. I know I can't wait! I am already planning next summer's trip. I am planning to take him to Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana! So if any bloggers are from these fabulous states, please share with me the MUST sees- PLease send me your ideas!!! Thanks in advance.Believe it or not I am planning next summer's trip based on a few boutiques I am dying to visit! :)

Pay It Forward 2011

I first saw this on Facebook. I posted this on my FB status and got immediate responses. So I thought I might as well try it here on my Blog- Here is the idea:

"I promise to make something handmade for the first five people who comment.
They must in turn post this and make something for the first five who comment on their blogs. The rules are it has to be handmade by you, and they must receive it before 2011 ends."

I think this is such a cute idea and I am already getting started on my homemade goodies for my FB friends. I am trusting I will get 5 replies from my blog friends! :)

Hello 2011- Happy New Year

Happy New Year blogger friends! :) I had a pretty low key last night (NYE). I went to my twins and had dinner. We watched Sex and the City 2 (again) and had fun joking with friends and family. I ended up going home around 10:30 and actually went to bed by 11:30. Pretty low key and uneventful, but I was OK with that...Woke up by 8 am, got up, showered, dressed and took the puppies on their morning walk.


It is so cold here in So California. I wont even mention how cold (50 degrees), since I may offend readers in the south and the east! Sending prayers to the people of Arkansas, given the horrible tornado. Twin and friend picked me up and we went shopping to Tai Pan Trading. I love this store! We had lunch at Fuddruckers-(my first visit) and it was delish! I had a gift card for Nordstrom that was burning a hole, so we went to the mall. I am on a tight budget this week so I was really conservative in my shopping...I got a few items at Bath and Body Works (most items I got were 75% off!) and Old Navy ($3.95 tanks). We were gone for most of the day so the puppies and I took our last walk for the night and I started watching the OWNetwork. Its pretty good...I think most shows that peaked my interest will start this fall...Thank goodness I have one more day before I return to work on Monday. I am looking forward to a promising new year- wishing you all happiness, lots of love and good health!
