A few things to say

~I have still been taking my digital scrapbooking class and, despite my Photoshop issues, I managed to complete 2 layouts. One was for the class, one was just for fun. Here they are, for your viewing pleasure.

~I am excited about 2 things. One is that my favorite show, So You Think You Can Dance, is on tonight. The other is that my family has decided to stop to visit me on their way to Utah tomorrow. They will stay here tomorrow night and then leave Friday afternoon. I get to see my sister Kim, whom I haven't seen in 19 months. And she'll get to meet Eva, finally. I CANNOT WAIT.

~We do a weekly pizza night, usually on Fridays. Homemade pizza. We decided to do it tonight since Friday we will be in Wichita Falls hanging out with our awesome friends (oh yeah, that's another thing I'm way excited about) and probably eating at On the Border. But tonight we are doing a new twist on our usual mozzarella tomato spinach pizza. Thanks to the brilliant suggestion of Pioneer Woman, we are adding pesto as the sauce. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

~2 weeks from today, I will give birth. It's coming right up, folks. Get ready.

~We have placed a plethora of online orders, which is not normal for me. We got the first of them yesterday--3 books from They are Positive Discipline: The First Three Years, The Diaper-Free Baby, and Baby Wise. I highly recommend all three of them. We followed Baby Wise with Eva and she slept through the night from 9 weeks old. I swear it's not just luck--I think that book is almost my second religion. And Positive Discipline is awesome too. I read one of them for a class in college and thought it was brilliant. Now that I am a parent, it's even more brilliant. Seriously, read these books. The second order came today--a carseat cover for Leighton from Target. On the way we have my Blurb book, a double stroller (a Sit'n'Stand; I have heard great things about these--I'll let you know what I think), and some movies for Eva. Getting packages is one of the best things in the world, don't you think?

~Last night on the History channel Andrew was watching this thing about Mt. Rainier erupting and causing this thing called a Lahare (no idea how to spell that) that will kill at least 21,000 or something. And yes, we are moving RIGHT there. We are going to die. The History channel said so. I'm definitely getting food storage when we get there. Not that it will save me from the worst natural disaster this world will ever see, but...maybe it will make me feel a little better.

~I installed a map on my blog that says where people live who look at it (I mean VERY generally where they live--like just the state--don't be freaked out) and yesterday I saw that someone in ITALY read my blog. Hello? Are we kidding? I don't know ANYONE there. I feel amazingly cool. So thanks to whoever in Italy reads about my life. You made me feel totally popular. It almost makes up for all the junior high trauma--that's how cool I feel. Let's hear it for Italians.

Great job on the digital pages! I've been thinking about trying that out, but how do you print them?

Elise said...

Your pages are BEAUTIFUL! Thanks for posting them! I've been anxious to see what you've been up to.

Don't you love those visitor maps? I sometimes get someone in idea who, but it is so cool :).

I think I've been caught! I'm your Italy reader and I promise I'm not stalking you. I'm a friend of Camille's-we were stationed at Vance two years ago. I stumbled across your blog while checking hers one day and I think I'm addicted. I love your blog-you are so funny! Either way, if you ever need a taste of Italy, come on over and visit my blog. It is far less exciting than yours, though. :)
