Why, oh why can't I.

As I sit and think on what I want to type, my only wish is to be real. To let you come into my world. To share every detail of my life with you. As much as I would like to be candid like that...I cant. I wish I could say I don't care what other people think. I cant. I wish I could say I don't mind being judged. I cant. I CAN however share a few things in my life. A few things that make me sad. That make me who I am. My children and my husband are my world. My saving grace. My everything. We have been through it all together. Today was a rough day. Work, crisis, worry, frustration, more frustration. I got through it. I survived. It wasn't as bad as it could be or has been or will ever be. It was mild to say the least, but it was. I hope that when life hands YOU days like mine that you get through them and that you have someone who loves and adores you to hold your hand through it all.

My husbands birthday is today! Woot! He is 40. Happy birthday my best friend, soul mate, my knight. Without him I would be lost.

We went and saw 2 movies. Youth In Revolt and Lovely Bones both were 3 out of 5 stars. Not great but not bad.

Ok enough with the deep, mushy, serious stuff. On to the fun crafty goodness. I cleaned my desk, organized it a bit, then scrapped my little heart out. Well as much I could find time for. I joined in with Kristi and MJ over at Everything Scrapp'n for their all weekend crop. Really inspired me. Here is what I accomplished over the weekend.

My husband and myself on one of our many date nights at the movie theater. We stop at the photo booth every once in a while and snap a few. Love doing that.

One of my most fav little spots in my most fav city. Musee Mecanique in S.F.

Door hanger.

This is my gradmothers granfather. Not sure his name or if it is really him. The reason I say that is because grandma wasn't sure either lol!

I have been in a crafty mood and just haven't had the time to do anything about it. I hope to craft some more before this all goes away. I got happy mail and I should get more. Can't wait. I really really need to get some pics printed out.

Speaking of pics here are my photos from self portrait tues.

I also have some fun eating bug pics to share and some wicked cool scrappy news to announce but I think I will save those till next time. Till then! Thanks for stopping by!

Ugh, I know what you mean. People think I'm so transparent on my blog, but I'm like, really I have to choose my words SO carefully and I can't go into fine detail or call anyone out. I tend to be a bit of an open book but at the same time, I'm pretty vague. I hope things are going better for you!

Love the projects.... so gorgeous!
