See, I told you I would start blogging more. :) So, first things first....I have yet to even start on my layout for round two of the digiscrappin contest. YIKES!!! :)
It's a tough one! But I am excited to do it because I NEVER scrap myself. I've thought of a few different directions I could go with it...but nothing that is really "me" yet. There are some BEAUTIFUL pages in the gallery already. Like this one, and this one, and Miss Lauren's, and Amy's super fab one, and my personal FAVE...I could go on, and on... I am literally blown away at the creativity of these women. WOW!! But one thing really bothers me. I can't believe how many people have such a negative view of themselves. I'm shocked!! I mean, I know that life is not ALWAYS peaches and cream (believe me, I KNOW!!)...but seriously, is it really THAT bad? I'm a firm believer that I am in control of my destiny. I control how I look at myself and shape how the world sees me. I guess I'm not one to sit at home and wallow in self hatred. If I don't like something, I change it. Or at least try to accept it for being part of ME. That is not meant to sound bad or offensive in any way, I just feel really sad for these people who hate themselves so much. Well, on that note, I'm planning on doing my page tonight. Hopefully I'll get some major inspiration so I can get the crazy thing done.
I've been thinking about Mother's day coming up and wondering what we are going to do for our dinner. (We go to my parents house every other Sunday for dinner with everyone.) My dad usually requests the Strawberry Spinach Salad that is one of my specialties. So I'm sure this time will be no different. :) I originally found the recipe at allrecipes.com, but modified things a bit to suit our tastes a little more. It's my FAVORITE and I could eat it by the bucket loads. It's perfect for all those spring/summer get-togethers, and in the winter I just sub pomegranate seeds for the strawberries. YUMMMMMMMM-O! So here ya go:
And that is about it for today. Gotta run and grab Liv from school and finish cleaning so I can spend the rest of the night scrapping little ol' me. hehe Wish me luck!
