Entry for "The Dark Mermaid" Blog Candy Giveaway

So, I'm trying to find some balance and re-adjust to Chris being home. Sorry I haven't been posting very often. I've been neglecting my crafty side too and can't take it anymore! I made this card for a chance at a giveaway on Randi's blog. Sweet Pea Stamps is celebrating their first birthday and their design team members are having giveaways on all of their blogs. I would love to win a free stamp :) I will post some pictures of Chris and I soon when I figure out how to put pics from his camera on my computer.

Really great day today...

Chris and I went to the swap meet this morning and got skunked. Nada, nothing, we got there too late and it was all picked over. Oh well, next time :) For lunch we went to Daddy-O's in Point Loma. It's right next to my LSS (litte scrapbook store), Paper Tales, and I've been wanting to try it for a while. I had "The Mondo" and it was delicious.

There's a layer of peanut butter above the swiss chesse. I know it sounds weird but it was really good :) Seriously, yummy. I like sweet and salty combos.
After our lunch I headed over to Paper Tales and took a Copics class with Randi. It was great. I learned some new tricks and she helped me with a couple of things that have stumped me.
Has anyone been watching "The Pacific" on HBO? My friend Katie got us to watch it and now we are hooked. It's kind of like "Band of Brothers" but a little more concise. Chris says he can relate more to Marines than the Army, so he likes it as well. Yay, we agree on a show :)

Hi again...

Sorry for my absence, been reconnecting with the hubby :)
Here's a quick recap on what we've been up to in no particular order:
-delicious steak dinner
-relaxed Easter with an earthquake
-walking the dogs
-a fun trip to Stone Brewing Co.
-a "Second Saturday" at Hamilton's
-yummy and nutritious home-cooked meals
-a beautiful bike ride
-long walks/hikes
-"Clash of the Titans" (our first 3D movie--awesome)
-fun nights with friends
-yard overhaul (I know that sucks but it had to be done!)
-dog park
-farmer's market
With all of the excitement I have completely forgotten to photo-document anything :( I promise some pics soon! And I am dying to get some crafting in. [Chris adds] "...if I can ever get my head out of this computer, I think I like looking up crafting more than I like doing it..." He's making fun of me b/c I sit in front of the tv with my laptop and check abt a million blogs and websites a day!
