I have been searching the internet for African American images of little girls and such to use in my ATC's. I was so excited when Patty at sent me these. The first thing I said was let's get these in the store and on my blog because I know I am not the only one that has been searching for these. Well Patty put them on here
for everyone to buy. I think we just really need to show our support and buy this sheet so that Patty will make more for us.
I love using these images in my art.........and know you will too... so go get it now while it is still priced at $2.00

My celebrity spotting

So, we are running through Minneapolis and who Rick says look it is the Mom from Little People Big world on TLC. Yep sure enough there is Amy Roloff from Big World Little People sitting at the gate waiting on her flight to a location I won't mention in Michigan. Had I of had time I would have stopped and said hi. I would not of asked for her picture or her autograph as I believe she should have her moment of quietness. I just would of stopped and said Hey Amy how are you? How is Matt and the kids. That is it.... then I would have said enjoy your flight.

When it rains it pours and this time rain is good

So, in less than an hour we have gone from going to Canada in two days, to Gatlinburg in less than a month then Vegas in two months and now........ drumroll...... ALASKA 2010!!! We are already booked on the cruise and this time we are going with friends. This is so exciting. We didn't go all the way out like we did when we went this year and renewed our vows. We are going not budget but not regal either....just plain ole travlers.
We will be going a little early with friends so we can travel through seattle and show them sites as well as in Vancover.
These friends invited us to go to Rome with them next year and stay for free in their timeshare...oh yeah.
Free is good .......... but we will help with the cleaning fees, and take them out to dinner a few times.
I am going to buy Rosetta Stones speak italian in less than a year
When I married Rick 12 years ago I had no idea that my life would be this good. He is my traveling buddy, my soulmate, my everything and I would never want to see any of these without him.
So that old saying goes........ LIFE IS GOOD and my life is very good right now.

We're going to VEGAS BABY

We are going to VEGAS BABY!!!! October 14-18 all expense paid trip. Remember all that hard work I did? Remember all the traveling I had to do? well................................. I received an email and guess what????? they are giving all of us an all expense paid trip to Vegas and I am staying at the and getting tickets to see either KA or O. Now here is the super duper part RICK gets to go!!!!!!!!!
We have to pay for his stuff but that is super by me. He is excited and I am very excited to go. We are actually going to stay a day longer with Shannon and her husband. Shannon and I met when we went to the training session in Detroit and just clicked. Both Shannon and her husband are younger than we are but you would never know it. Just wonderful folks.
So, while Shannon and I have the awards banquet and classes during the day her husband and Rick will have time to get to know each other.
Once the session is over it is play time. Gondola ride through the hotel? YOU BET!!!!!
walking the strip in vegas? oh yeah.
I just know that
what happens in vegas stays in vegas.

How does the saying go.....

Five more nights and a wakeup? That is how long it will be before I am in Canada with Rick. I can't wait.
My favorite restaurant of all time is called the Chocolate Moose in International Falls. Rick and I have a standing date with that restaurant everytime we go to Canada. When we arrive on Friday it will be dinner at the Moose, then Saturday we wake up early and head right back to the Moose for an awesome breakfast.
We turn around and do the same thing on our way home. Thank goodness we fly into International Falls every year for vacation.
I still have a menu from last year that I have already looked through to see what I will be ordering come Friday night...
yum yum yum

Vacation Planning is tiring.....

Rick is planning on a Europe vacation for us for next year and I am pooped just watching him. I had no idea there were so many choices... boats, planes, trains and automobiles. Which one and what to do is all on him. I am going along for the ride.
We made this deal that we would pick five places we have always wanted to go. He picks two I pick two then we chose one together.
Some of the cities we have chosen are
Russia ( me )
Norway ( Rick)
Sweden ( Rick)
France (me)
Italy ( me)
back to alaska (both)
So, he is working on this River Cruise in Europe where you get to stop at tons of places along the way.........
I can't wait..... if this vacation is anything thing like the last vacation he surprised me with I am sure it will be wonderful.
