Need something to blog about, consider yourself tagged!

* I love this site....Cuteable

* I am loving the new Kanye I heard on the radio, Stronger and Homecoming, totally weird because I don't really listen to that music, nor am I Kanye fan, but I love it.
But I feel like Brooke Shields in this video when I listen to it...Momma's gonna take out her pimp hand!

* I am liking some of the new Lizzie Ann stamps, especially the new Halloween one and that Good Cheer stamp.

* I am working on a This Is Me journal and so far I am liking the process. I think it will be a nice time capsule about myself for the kid and I like taking a look into myself without the pressure of scrapbooking an actual picture...very stress-free. I encourage ya to check it out, when I get my cover finished (started), I will post some of the pages and such. You can join in the fun yourself, the details are on their blog, no pressure.

* I'm working on a big suprise for next week...hint...Halloween, stay tuned.

* The weather here is glorious, amazing how much great weather can change your mood, isn't it? Hope things are sunny and 70 where you are!

* Think I'll check out a movie this weekend, anyone seen SuperBad? Think that may be the one, or the kid wants to see Balls of Fury, that's a possibility too.

Hope everyone has a safe and happy Labor Day weekend, I'll miss camping this weekend, we usually do that, but we are laying low this weekend and just hanging.
Have a GREAT weekend!

You have an awesome Labor Day as well - wish you were closer I'd invite you over that day.

Really? I love the name Simone, I think it's awesome!

I cannot believe you hate your first name. I think it's a very classy, elegant name.

kat said...

You're welcome. Love your blog and think you should be nominated for the Hottest Mommy Blogger award. Anyway, I told some of my friends to vote for you. Btw. like your first name too. It has style. Since you don't seem to like it, what would you rather have been called?

Kristi @ Mi Vida Ocupada said...
