11 Weeks Pregnant and Counting!

When I imagined pregnancy, it definitely didn't go like this.  Pregnancy is supposed to be full of wonderful feelings, and ponies and junk, but what I get is never ending nausea, random pains, and abnormal bowel movements that I will not talk about any further... Luckily I do have to be thankful that I have not had any horrible complications so far, but I still have a long way to go.  I'm going to need a ton of motivation until August 20th, or around that time frame haha.  My awesome husband has been there for me since we found out that we were going to have our first child.  He is very excited about it!  I will start taking pictures once I start showing a bit more, but for now, I just look bloated and fat ha!

Project Life 2015 Creative Team

This post is a little late, but on the 29th of December they announced the new members of the Creative Team, and I am very happy to say that I made it!  I am super excited, but nervous at the same time!  More posts will follow with what I am working on and my finished pages/projects :)

Playing Catch Up

Catching up on Project Life was a very daunting task.  I love to take pictures, so when I discovered Project Life a couple of months ago, I decided that I want everything scrapbooked :) but I've got a ton of events and pictures that I still need to document.  The three below are my first three Project Life pages! I was very excited about them, and I even submitted them for the 2015 Project Life Creative Team contest!  They haven't announced the creative team, but I'm holding out hope :)  I hope to later incorporate embellishments into my projects, but I didn't have any at the time.  So far I just have the basic necessities (the album, sleeves, and one core kit).  It's really fun, and I can not wait to see my album full of pages :)

Social Media Blog Buttons

Hello All!

I've always loved the simple look of the different colored blog buttons, and I just thought it would be something I'd have to shell out some cash for.  Turns out they're free :)  I explored the interwebs and ran across this blog:
Here was where I found my adorably cute social media buttons for free :) She provides so many different colors for you to choose from, even glitter!  I love the addition they make to my blog, and you can get them too!  Her blog can also help you out with other blogging tricks, so check it out! :) (You can find the blogging buttons under "Techie Tips" --> "Social Media Icons")

Hello Kitty Con and My 21st Birthday

October 30-31, 2014

I recently started getting into Project Life, and I also bought the Project Life App to make things easier on the go :) I much prefer the physical supplies, but I tend to get lazy ;) but I made this one out of the pictures from when I went to Hello Kitty Con in Los Angeles.  It was a great time. I bought tickets for me and my husband to go for two days (he was patient with it lol). It cost $30 per day per person, so it gets pricey if you want to go all four days.  On top of that they have classes that you'd have to pay for if you want to attend. $$$ so much money!! 0.o but it was really fun :) there was a lot to see and shop for. They had performances very often that were pretty cool :) we stood in line a lot, especially to get into the shop! It took us 3 1/2 hours for the shop, and we waited an hour to get into the convention before that! It was pretty crazy!!

The big 21! Never turns out how you think? Well, mine certainly didn't.  I babysat while everyone else had all the fun! It wasn't that bad though.  I just wanted to stick this project on here because I liked how it turned out.  Cupcakes were eaten, and video games were played, it turned out to be an okay time in the end.  That night I ended up with a broken door and a popped out screen, but all is well, we are getting it fixed free of charge!

I think I'm going to make Project Life a regular hobby...especially since I got very good news recently, but that's a secret ;)

Jigokudani Snow Monkey Park

First post.  This is a test really, because I am only trying to figure out how this works.  So, a little about the picture … while I was living in Japan I visited the Jigokudani Snow Monkey Park in Nagano Prefecture.  I originally saw pictures like this on Pinterest, and thought it would be an amazing experience.  I wasn’t disappointed! :) My husband took the picture above, and I edited it.  I’m slightly jealous he was able to capture this picture >.> but! I’m happy he got it :) When we first arrived at the park, we had to hike a ways to get to where the snow monkeys hung around.  It was a beautiful hike through snow covered woods. When you finally reach the area where the monkeys were, you paid to get through and you were able to see the monkeys.  They were not afraid of us, in fact they weren’t afraid to warn you that you were getting uncomfortably close! The opportunity for amazing pictures was all around! If you are ever in the area I would highly recommend you visit this park.  It was only ¥1000 (about $10), so it’s a pretty cheap visit :)Well, this ends my test :]
