I've been tagged and Finally Friday challenge!

I was tagged by my friend Denise, so here goes... (ps the challenge is at the bottom of this post)

What were you doing ten years ago?

So Feb of 1998, I was a senior at UNH. I was working at The Disney Store and wondering what the heck I was going to do with the rest of my life. I was driving my 1979 brown Volvo, Betty that I miss everyday. She was a tank!! Did I think in 10 years from now I'll be a SAHM with 2 kids and a SU demo????? not at all!!

What were you doing 1 year ago??

A year ago I was pregnant with my second daughter. And I was convincing Denise that being an SU demo was lots of fun!!

Name your five favorite snacks...

ummm, yes, all snacks!! I couldn't just name 5!!! I guess right now my favorite is Special K chocolatey delight cereal. (That's my idea of diet food)

Name five things you would do if you were a millionaire...

After this winter of snow and ice the first thing I'd do with the $$$ is flatten the gigantic hill in the middle of my driveway!!! It's always an adventure getting to and from the house. Second I'd go to Hawaii, we went for our honeymoon and after getting there and realizing we'd used all our $$ to get there, well I just don't think we got the full effect of the islands eating dinner at Denny's(although the sunset there was the best we saw the whole trip!!!). Third I'd take a year(well March-October) and go to all the Formula 1 races around the world. Then the practical me would kick in and I'd put money away for the girls' college tuition and then decide what charities and schools to give $$ to.

Name five things you like doing...

Spending time as a family, stamping/crafting, sleeping, blogging/chatting/hanging out with friends and travelling.

Name five things you would never wear again...

my prom dress, a string bikini, acid washed jeans that are tight rolled at the bottom with 2 layered pairs of socks, ultra low rise jeans and short shorts

Name your five favorite toys...

Well of course all my Stampin' Up! supplies, I'd go insane without them. The computer, which is my life line to the outside world. My daughter's travel DVD player, aka the only way for me to take a shower. My digital camera, I have a bit of a picture taking problem. My sudoku magazine to keep me sharp!!

Now, it's my turn to tag five more people. I tag... Alexandra, Stacy , Jessica, Jennifer and Robin. These are some of my blogging sisters and new friends. Hope you girls get a chance to tell us a little more about you. You just need to answer these few questions and then tag 5 more bloggers. Have fun! :)


Well I found out this week that I am going to be an aunt, twice!!! My sister and my SIL are both prego!!! One is due in July the other in September!! So today's challenge is anything baby!! Shower favors(which I need to think of!!!), welcome baby cards, scrapbook pages whatever if it's about a baby go for it!

This is my card for my challenge and the monday mojo week 26 challenge. This one is for my sister. I love this color combo and after playing with it last week, I already had a lot of pieces pre-cut!! This uses the SU stamp set swell news, which is retired (tomorrow there is a new pregnancy stamp coming out in the mini though!!). The sentiment says, "you grow girl" I used my fine cosmo glitter container to make the growing belly on the side.

Stamps: swell news ink and CS:groovy guava, old olive, WW, cko. chip, blush blossom. Accessories: artichoke grosgrain, sponge, scallop, 1 1/4 circle and oval punches, crop-a-dile, pretties kit, rhinestone brad.

Thanks for stoppin' by!!
