An exciting day...

My husband and I have been waiting for a long time to be able to buy a home of our own. The stars were in alignment this year for us, and today we were able to put in an offer on a home! Now we must wait and see if they accept the offer... We hope to be calling Glendora, CA our new home!

On another note, go check out the Urban Anthology Blog, they are having a poll this week, where you can win a fantastic prize for just leaving a comment...

Its been so long!

I can't believe i have neglected my blog for so long! Life has been very busy these days... Urban Anthology has taken off and has kept me on my toes. Our second kit will be released October 1st, and I'm very excited about its release. Our last kit did well, and I was finally able to tinker with a few papers yesterday to make a card for my MIL. This weekend I will be heading out to the Scrappin' Escapes Retreat... to both relax and do a little business. I haven't been to one of Jessica's retreats yet, but from what I have been told by some friends of mine, they are retreats that are not to be missed!

Now onto my personal life, things have been busy there as well... we are finally starting to look to buy a house. I never thought making that decision would be so hard. I thought it would be like my wedding dress, when you try the right one on, you just know... but I guess my house vs hubbies house are two different things! Good thing he didn't pick my wedding dress, lol! During our summer we were able to take a small vacation to Virginia to visit our friends the Adam, Erica, and little Megan... who is their beautiful and smart daughter ... I hope our kids are that cute and smart some day! We enjoyed a nice extra long weekend with them, wishing Adam (Chris's friend from childhood) well on his deployment with the Navy...

Chris has been busy these past few weeks volunteering at the Los Angeles County Fair at the Garden Railroad. He enjoys spending his free time tinkering the with trains! I'm glad he found a place and people to share his passion for trains with! Now lets just hope he was joking about the garden railroad around our new house!

I am looking forward to the fall season that is upon us. Now if the hot temperatures would just cool down, I wouldn't complain. I hope to make it to the mountains one of these weekends for a relaxing weekend away... and perhaps a day or two at Disneyland before our season passes expire... we still haven't tried out some of there newest rides.
