Never a Dull Moment!

Yikes, it's been a while since I've posted. Thanks so much for your emails as to why I haven't updated my blog! I'm so gets so busy!

On Monday, Ken and I celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary. I can't believe it's been 18 years! Time really flies!

Here's a wedding photo...

Gosh, we look like babies! By the way, that's sparkling cider....I wasn't 'legal' to drink yet! ;)

Here's a recent photo (taken last year)

My, I've changed, Ken just looks more like a grown up. ;)

On my trip to CKU Houston, (the week before our anniversary), Ken handed me his iPod and told me there was something on it to watch once I got on my plane. He wouldn't tell me what it was, so I was really curious.

I got on the plane and turned that thing on.....

Ken had digitized (is that a word?!?) our Wedding Video! It was now on the iPod, playing right before my eyes. Of course I cried! I haven't seen the video for at least ten years! It was amazing to see my dear Uncle Bill and Ken's Grandma (both have passed away). The feelings that rushed over me at that moment were unexplainable. Now, two weeks later, I get teary eyed just thinking about seeing that video.

What a sweetie Ken is to me. I don't deserve him.
He also put 13 going on 30 on the iPod. So I watched it on the way home....hey, did you know you can fast forward on an iPod? I didn' teenager thought it was hilarious that I didn't know that....hey, I don't OWN an iPod...WHY would I know that?!? {The iPod was Ken's not mine....}
Big hugs,
P.S. Don't forget, June 28th is Everything Inque Day! Have you printed your coupon yet?!? Head over to Inque Boutique to get it!

I'm home, CKU was a blast!

Ah, home sweet home. Yes, it's a mess, but it's our mess. ;)

CKU was once again WONDERFUL! I love meeting scrapbookers and stampers from around the United States and the world...the UK and Brazil were represented...and probably a few more countries! Of course, I had my camera; however, sadly it didn't have a memory card in it! (I'm such a goober....the memory card was at home in my printer....) So, if you went to CKU and have some pictures you would like to share...I'd love you to email me some! :)

One of my rules about traveling for work is that I MUST be home for my girls' birthdays. I missed my 10th anniversary (my hubby is a big boy), but the kids come before work....

Katie's birthday was Friday, and I finished teaching in Houston on Thursday at 4pm. No problem! Well, my first flight was delayed, so I would miss my connecting flight....big problem. Our airport closes at night (before 11pm), so I was in trouble. Luckily, a wonderful man at USAir took pity on me and booked me a non-stop Houston to
Orange County on a different airline! I made it home! (trust me, I was praying like crazy!)

So, I wake up to LOTS of noise in the kitchen....Katie is in her room getting dressed, so I go downstairs and it is my teenager making an egg and cheese and bacon omelette with toast for her sister. Along with three candles! I couldn't believe my teenager was being so thoughtful! {if you have a teen, you know what I'm talking about!} ;)

Here's a picture of our morning...yes, they look's about 7am....

We are off to see Wicked in Los Angeles today. Ken and I saw it last month and it is fantastic! If you ever get the chance, you must see it.
Big Hugs,
