This is going to be interesting...

Well, I did something this evening that I never thought that I would do. It was done out of a sincere attempt to enjoy one of the man's passions. I worked really hard at this last year and so this year I decided to go that extra step. (theMainLadybug and ontherefrigeratordoor can verify my efforts from the last year-lol)

So, what am I giving my fall away too? A fantasy football league. looks very strange doesn't it? Especially coming from me. Now granted, this is just a league involving the family, and yes, I did have him throw in some HEAVY input (*wink*) but the fact of the matter is there is a team called:

The Little Lambs
Sounds fierce, right!! Get it? Mary & the little lambs?!! Go Lambs!

I will keep you updated with the progress that the team is making...are there any football fans out there aside from the Main Ladybug??? Ms. Ladybug, I did draft Rob Bironas! (heavy suggestion from the man) But I will say that I do remember his name from last year! And I knew there had to be someone from the Titan's on my team just for you!!!

Now allow me to throw in a beautiful memory of mine. We all knew that the Main Ladybug is a Titans fan. No- really, she is a BIG Titan's fan. But there was that one Thursday office party where we were told to show our Titan's spirit, and who would have thought, but that Main Ladybug dyed her hair blue!!! But not only that, there was a Titan's sports jersey with the incorporated packing air bubbles as shoulder pads. gelakguling It was so priceless, I can't even explain to you how priceless it was. Aw, our bosses' faces. I will never forget it! Thank Ms. Ladybug!

(Side note, if you haven't met the Main Ladybug, you all will love her as I do. Please stop on by!)

So I have a sneaking feeling that this team is going to get me to become a hard core football fan. I have to be truthful, I kind of hope it does. That way the man and I can have something else to bond over. He will never get me on baseball, but I think he has a strong possibility that he will get me on football. I live in the South, this is big right??!! Let's hope that this time next year, I won't be soooo annoyed at the football countdown. Yes, Ladies, I am update quite frequently with the weeks, days, hours and minutes until the first game!

What is the role of football in your households? How do you all deal?

Whew! Bag making frenzy last night!

Good grief! I got such a creative burst last night and just went crazy making as many gift bags as I could possibly make. I think that I totaled 16 and that was in one evening. Crazy, right?! I have been accumulating an obnoxiously long list of bags that I wanted to make and I just went to town tearing up the place!

I wanted to share them with you to see what you think. Ladies, please-please-please feel free to give me any feedback about these crazy creations. I can take the good and bad!! Really, I can. lol And if you have any ideas on new bags or bag sets that I can make, I would love any suggestions!

This is my favorite set! It is a set of 9 bags all with different ribbons and stickers on them. And not just stickers, but MAD LIB stickers for "Girl's Night Out!" How much fun is this! Seriously! So my thought is that this would make for a perfect game where each woman fills out the mad lib and then you have to guess who wrote what based on their answers! What a great icebreaker! I'm such a geek, but sounds like a bag full of fun!!! (had to throw that retarded comment in there!)

I so love this black glitter butterfly paper!

Holiday Bags:

I can't believe that the holidays are right around the corner! What a whirlwind!

Silk flower bags:

This is bright enough that it can brighten anyone's day!! lol

It is great to finally have a good amount of stuff listed in my store! If you want to see any more pictures or find out any more information on these bags, my store is!

I am thinking about doing a giveaway soon of some of my bags. Any thoughts or suggestions on what kinds of bags you guys would like to see? I am here to appease everyone!

Thanks Ladies!kenyit

YAY!! Chris and I are so pumped! Ah, there is a light at the end of the tunnel- no more apartment living! Thank goodness! And yes, that is a SOLD sign!!! WOOHOO! Ladies, I am so excited!I do sincerely apologize for being a news tease, but I wanted just to wait just a bit longer to make sure that all of our ducks were in a row! You know, I was afraid that I would share the wonderful news will all of you and then we would get a phone call saying "nice try". lol A little tibbit about me, I am such a paranoid person. It drives Chris up the wall. :) So that was my reasoning for drawing all of this out. Hope you all will forgive me!

We are even fornutate enough to pimp this house out a little bit with hardwood floors, and some granite! They will be starting the work soon, and I will keep you all up to date!

Here is the view as soon as you step inside, trust me Ladies, when I am done with this house, there will not be an inch of Beige in sight. I am SOOO not a fan of beige! COLOR BABY!
And this is our kitchen! One of our prereqs. for our house was a big kitchen. Chris and I are sick and tired of having to do leap frog and twirls around each other when we cook together. That is something that we like to do together, so the kitchen was a big thing! Picture granite counters and a backsplash! YIPPY! So giddy! This is my little brother Stephen! Hi Stephen! And we are going to be moving close to my brother and SIL, and all of Chris' family and friends. I am pretty pumped about being near family again! It has been a long time...Backyard!! This picture is from the back corner of our lot, we lucked out and got a HUGE backyard! Bonus! I have been talking Chris' ear off about our backyard and how I am going to go HOG WILD landscaping this sucker! I just hope that he is ready for it all! I'm thinking English garden!
So this was my news! I can't wait! I will be sure to keep you all up to date with the interior construction photos! They should be started this soon!

Some Prayers Needed for Parker

Hey Ladies,

Lindsey is a good girlfriend of mine from college and she just had a baby boy who is in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Parker was born at 12:01 am on July 28th, he weighed 2 pounds 1 oz. and was 13 inches long after a short (26 weeks) and trauma filled pregnancy.
Thus far in his short little life, he has had to overcome some big obstacles like Bacterial Meningitis, high levels of E. Coli, and Apnea. Too much for such a little one. I can't imagine the roller coaster that Lindsey and Lance are on. In one of her posts she said that Parker is wearing Lance's wedding ring as a bracelet, it broke my heart.Here is Lindsey's blog that she has started to keep everyone up to date on Parker's status. I know that they can use as many prayers as they can get. Parker Alexander Maximus Ringhand's story.

Thanks Ladies, I know that I can count on you!

I came back to find out that I have been given a blog award! WOOHOO! Thank you so much Cindy! I was featured on her blog Chalk It Up! on Friday! If you haven't seen her blog, she has some amazing art work, and her frames are fantastic!

Seriously, how amazing is this!? Please stop by and check it out! Thanks Cindy!

I know that there is some news to share, but I have to hold on a bit longer. I should be good to share by the end of the week. Don't mean to tease you all, I apologize. But it is big! ;-)

Anyone excited for the Project Runway premiere on Thursday?! I can't wait!

I'm still here!

Hey Ladies!

I know that I have been missing in action the last few days, but I will be filling you in on all of the details soon, I promise. There is some very good news to share, but it is still a bit too soon! Teaser, right!! Hehe, I love it. And before you start getting any ideas- no, I am not preggo! Sorry to disappoint, but that isn't it!

We are heading to Mobile for the weekend and I will be back on Monday. Fingers crossed that I will have my computer back by Monday and I will be off and running again. Oh, it has been so hard without my computer. Isn't it ridiculous that you can get attached to that silly machine!

So until next week, here is a cute picture to share! I hope everyone is doing well and I will catch up with you all soon! Take is easy!

My Three New Friends!

Ah, I feel so much better after my long vent from last night! The good thing that came from it, is that I now have the motivation to pick myself back up and study again. I have been away from it for a long time and it is about time that I finish what I started. Thank you to everyone who took the time to read it, I know that it wasn't pretty! lol I went ahead and deleted it though. It didn't show my best side. lol :-)

So here I am with a new recipe that is a lot of fun! But should really only be enjoyed on a bad day, because Ladies, it is not healthy! But man, is it delicious! I call it my "3 Guys Pie."

2 Pints of Ben & Jerry's Stephen Colbert Ice Cream (hence the 3 Guys)
1 Premade Chocolate Graham Cracker Crust 9"
1 12oz. box of Waffle Cones
1 7.25oz Container of Magic Shell Chocolate Flavored

Let the ice cream sit out for 15-20 minutes or so. It needs to be soft enough so that you can spread the ice cream around in the pie crust. My ice cream was soft by the time that I got home from the store so it might not take that long.

While that is softening, take all of the cones and break them up into small pieces. As seen below:
Simple pimple to assemble. Spread the ice cream all over the pie. Be careful not to eat ALL portions of the carmel, it is hard to resist. Place the pie back in the freezer for 2-4 hours. You are looking for the ice cream to harden again. After it is frozen, you can do the topping. Take the magic shell and cover the top of the pie. Then sprinkle the cone pieces over the top of the chocolate. Finally top the cones with the left over chocolate shell. Place in the freezer for 15 minutes to allow for the shell to harden.

Cut, serve, and enjoy! Do not get on the scales for the next 5 days!!! But guarentee to brighten any bad day!!! :-) And this is Chris' hand! He couldn't wait another 2 seconds for me to take this picture!

Tagged! I'm it!

I've been tagged! WOOHOO! My new friend HazyDaisy just tagged me to share 6 random things about myself! She has a great blog with some really beautiful pictures, please check it out! (thanks HazyDaisy for the entertainment while I was waiting for my car to get fixed!!)

Alright Ladies, here is the scoop!

1. Link to the person or persons who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write six random and/or revealing things about yourself.
4. Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them.
5. Let each person know they’ve been tagged and leave a comment on their blog
6. Let the tagger know when your post entry is up on your site.

Six Random things about me:

1. I am a HUGE Dave Matthews fan. Really, HUGE fan! I have been to 11 shows, and I have actually gotten to sit in the second row at my very first concert! Love Dave! (Imagine my arms stretched out wide) "THIS MUCH"!! HEHE ;-)2. I can't stand the word "panties". Ah, I even cringe just typing the word. I have no idea where my hatred for the word came from, but I can't stand it! Eh...
3. I took Scottish Dancing lessons for awhile when I was young, and I absolutely loved it. I was bummed when I had to stop, because it was conflicting with soccer. My mom grew up playing the bagpipes, so I have that always had that in my life. I truly do love all things Scottish, and I would absolutely love the chance to go there some day. (Scotland and Rome are first two on my list)
4. I HATE spiders! Depise them! But I can't kill them! The thought of squishing one-ah-diguisting!! So I do one of three things. 1-Leave it for my insect catcher, Lizzie (below)
She is awesome at it! 2-Try to pretend I don't see it, but I am screaming and running away, and 3-Break out the Windex, toilet cleaner, whatever I can get my hands on. I can't squish it, but I can spray the heck out of it! Terrible, aren't I??! Creepy and disquisting.
5. Being an Architect (Degreed, not licensed yet. Yes, you are sensing some bitterness. But I will spare you all of venting, because that is another blog in the making. Not just a post, a blog! I will spare the world. Interns- you know what I am talking about!!) Okay, back on track.
We have studied several Architects during our time in Architectural school, and my favorite Architect is Marlon Blackwell. He is located in Fayetteville, Arkansas, and is AMAZING! And I would actually move to Arkansas to work for him. I have had the opportunity to meet him twice (I'm soooo lucky!!!) Once when I was studying at Harvard and then a couple of years later when he was a visiting professor at my graduate school. Above is a pictures of one of his projects that I love. It is a carport plus beekeeper's workshop. Awesome!
6. I have a fetish! Big fetish for handbags! Love them! And especially Coach bags! BE-AUTIFUL!
This love started when I was living in Argentina and I was completely surrounded by leather, steaks, and fashion. Ah, and they are so cheap too, it's awesome! Next trip, I am going with the clothes on my back, suitcases packed in suitcases and I am filling them up with handbags and introducing Chris to the wonderfully tasty steaks!! If you want a bag, let me know, I will put you on the list, I will be bringing back several!!! hehe

Whew- sorry to go on there! So I am tagging a few of my new friends to get to know them a bit better! Looking forward to reading your lists!!
