Ok… I try to post some nice family pictures and the comments end up being about my butt? HA! You’re all quite amusing. :) The truth is that my “ghetto booty” (as my friend Malea so nicely put it) has been a bit of a blessing and a curse my whole life. It’s not so bad when I keep my weight under control, but when I’m pregnant – and gaining weight like a prize fighter – I don’t love the booty so much. Right now I think my stomach and butt are having a competition to see which can pop out the furthest the fastest. I’m not sure which is winning…it’s close. Very close. That being said, it did land me my husband (always nice to hear from you on the blog babe) so I guess I should be grateful. And here I thought he first fell in love with my glowing personality.
Also in the comments on my last post a few of you asked about making your blog into a book. I’ve started one, but haven’t finished. Go to www.blurb.com and it will walk you through everything. You download their “Book Smart” software and then it will let you “slurp” your blog. This just pulls your blog up on the sidebar so you can create a book by clicking on the pictures/text from your blog and then dragging them where you want on each page of the book. For each page you pick a layout based on how many pictures/text you want to include. It’s really easy, just time consuming. Which is why I’ve only started this little project and not finished it. If anyone else has experience in making one and wants to add something helpful, feel free to in the comments. I’m sure many of you can explain it better than I can.
So this morning I had so many things I should have been doing. Like cleaning this playroom.
So instead I ate WAY too many cherries. And did some scrapbooking.
I started our Halloween book. Yes, this is Ellie’s first Halloween six years ago – like I said, I’m a bit behind. And then I decided I wasn’t in the mood for Halloween pages and I switched gears and started working on my Christmas book. I finally got around to doing something with all of the Christmas cards I’ve saved from family and friends and I’m so excited about having it done! I’ll post it as soon as I find some time to take pictures or scan my pages.
We have some good friends coming to visit this weekend to help us celebrate Ellie’s 6th birthday and I’m so excited! The weekend can’t get here soon enough…although I have a lot to get done before they arrive. Better start with that playroom.
