Hello from the arctic tundra.....

December 16, 2008

ETA: In honor of going to Twilight tonight...I took this little quiz:
I'm a Alice! I found out through TwilightersAnonymous.com. Which Twilight Female Are You? Take the quiz and find out!
Take the Quiz and Share Your Results!

You are intelligent, outgoing & stylish. A true girly girl, you love shopping & makeovers. Although you are a generous friend, you can be coy, tricky & very persuasive in order to get your way. You are known to zone out occasionally during conversations, but your friends forgive you because you are understanding, supportive & know how to throw one heck of a party!
Hee hee...it all sounds pretty correct other than the outgoing part. I don't know how you can be all of those things and shy at the same time...but that is me! I am only shy until I get to know you though...and then I become pretty outgoing!

Umm- yeah. It is freaking cold here. I know what you must be thinking. "Hello Lea?! You live in the north, and have for the majority of your 28 years of life. You should be used to it by now, so get over it." But seriously...who actually gets over -15 degrees Fahrenheit with a wind chill factor of -30? It makes me shiver just thinking about it. Do you know what else makes me shiver, but not from the freezing cold? The thought of opening our power bill next month. Yep...that one is going to hurt.

I wanted to repost some layouts that have been previously published. These were in the August 2008 issue of Scrapbook Trends Magazine. Two of my favorite layouts ended up in this magazine...the football layout and the cousin layout. Still love those ones after all this time. Be sure to click on them if you want to see more detail or read the journaling!!

So, did everyone have a good weekend and beginning of the week? Our arctic cold front hit late on Friday night. We went to Drummond on Friday night to watch Casey play basketball, then we stopped in at Swedes to watch the rest of the Griz game. They beat the #1 seed James Madison University...and are headed to the national championship!! The players left today for Chattanooga, TN and us fans couldn't be more proud of them! We haven't been to the national championship since 2004, and we haven't won it since 2001. I think we are due for another flag to fly in Washington Grizzly Stadium. ;) Good luck Griz...we will be glued to ESPN2 on Friday night!!

The freaking arctic front rolled in very late Friday night/early Saturday morning...and the rest of the basketball tournament ended up being canceled. So, we did some Christmas shopping at the mall, and then went to Hooters for lunch. So not my choice, but it was me and 7 men/boys...guess who picked? I couldn't care less about Hooters to be honest...you see much more skin at the lake or on the river in summers...but the food is not wonderful. I guess it doesn't have to be when your waitress is named "princess" and wearing a push-up bra two times too small. :) Yes Casey and Tyler...she did have eyes.

I am now in the middle of a pretty busy week. My mom was here last night. Tonight was my lazy night. Tomorrow night I am going to Twilight with two gals from work. On Thursday night Josh and I are going to some midnight showing of a newer movie...it is a private thing that the movie theater is doing for Best Buy employees and their significant others. Then Friday I have some church outreach stuff to take care of. So- it is a very busy week...if only I didn't have to work. Hee hee!

Well, I better get going for now! Have a happy rest of the night!
Until later,
