SOOO excited!!

As I was scrolling through the new posts on my Blogger dashboard, I saw one of my layouts on someone else's blog. My first thought was, "why would someone else post one of my layouts?" A second later I realized it meant that my submission for the "Watch Your Language" challenge at Candy Shoppe Designs had been chosen!!! I love Candy Shoppe Designs and was excited when they issued this challenge because I actually didn't think I would ever be able to show this potty mouthed layout to anyone, let alone enter it in a contest. So, thank you ladies of C.S.D. for the honor!

Some of you showed us your potty mouths and some of you sugar coated it, but all in all the Lollipop Girls and I thought those of you who stood up to this particular challenge had a lot of balls and we give you all much props for participating. There can only be 1 Winner and for this challenge that would be Lora Oliver. Excuse my language but we Lollipop Girls thought her layout kicked a$$! Check it out for yourselves!

Feel like yucky is coming to get me

I feel it coming on. I have been fighting valiantly, but it has entrenched itself as a low grade fever, runny nose, sore throat, and a cough. I refuse to admit it, I refuse to accept being it. GO AWAY! The ache is trying to work it's way in. No, no, NO!!!

Back from the East

And am kind of feeling human again. I wasn't expecting the jet lag to catch me, but boy did it ever! I slept over 15 hours yesterday and then went to bed last night and woke up at 1:00 pm today!?!? Crazy. I don't like that part of traveling, but am going to force myself to regain some normalcy to my schedule starting today. I am also fighting a sore throat that I hope isn't an indication of anything else.

G & I in the Forbidden City.

So....CHINA!! It was beautiful, wonderful, fabulous, and every other positive superlative you can come up with. We saw so many places, the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, the Giant Pandas, the Terra Cotta Warriors. I took 871 photos on one camera and about a 100 on another one. I have been trying to upload photos, so lets see what I can post here today. I will keep posting pictures throughout the week so you can see some of these cool places. Okay, here goes.
