Disney's Desperate Housewives

Ever since CJ turned me onto it, Desperate Housewives has been one of my favorite shows. I thought this was kind of cute.

Who Rocks?

I DO!!!
That's right.
By the way, if you want to learn more about what distinguishesRock Band from Guitar Hero (and makes it way more fun), check out the trailer. It may take a few minutes to load, but it's worth the wait.

Another Scraptacular Weekend

I just had the best weekend at my friend, Karen's house in Flowery Branch. We did nothing but drink Lemon Drops, Cosmos and wine . . and a little bit of croppin', too! I actually got quite a bit done (for my standards). Some were pages I did at the crop I hosted last week, others you'll recognize as former blog entries (where you'll get the details behind the pictures), and the rest were just random events that took place in the last few months. I objviusly don't scrapbook in order . . so I'll do whatever inspires me at the moment. It's much more freeing that way.

If you're interested to see the fruits of my labor, here are some links for easy viewing.

Not as easy as it looks!

I've always wanted a pair of roller blades, but didn't want to invest in them until I had a decent place to practice. I surely didn't want to embarrass Maya at Sparkles by trying to learn there. So when Swift Cantrell Park opened up in Kennesaw, I knew this was my chance.

On a side note . . . this new park is awesome!!! It's half a mile from my house and has two HUGE playgrounds (one for older kids and one for little ones). According to the master plan, it will have eventually have an aquatic center with an outdoor pool, tennis courts, sanded volleyball courts, a skate park, dog run, amphitheater, softball fields, bike trails, etc. It's like our own little Piedmont Park in Cobb County. I've got a 44 second video clip and some pictures of my kid, if you'd like to see more.

But back to the skating . . . I really thought roller blading would be easier. I already know how to ice skate and being a child of the 70s, I was pretty good on regular roller skates. Heck, I used to think I was Tootie. But roller blades are no joke. I've got the bruises to prove it. Tony had gotten me all the gear I needed to learn, but after putting on the knee pads, wrist guards and helmet, I felt like I had things pretty covered. I'm not too bad at skating around, but the foot brake is going to take some practice. Currently, I just spin or use stationary objects to help me slow down. But after skating around for a bit, I started getting a little too confident for my own good, and before I knew it, I took a pretty bad fall. I understand now how helpful those elbow pads would have been. And I'll definitely be wearing them next time.

Who Wants Pie?

It's always been my favorite dessert. All kinds . . . chocolate cream, cherry, coconut. I LOVE pie! But last Friday, I was served a new flavor. And I can honestly say, Humble Pie is not my favorite. It's ironic that I got it from the person I did, since I'm used to being the one to help serve it up. But oh well. . . I'll give Broken (wo)man a home for a while. Although if she's forced to grace my cube, I need her to be properly accessorized.
