2Peas Blogging Challenge

2Peas Blogging Challenge to start the week...challenge: what do you do to relax after a hard day of work?

I grab a big glass of ice water, browse my email quickly, play a fast game of spades on Pogo, & then watch House Hunters on HGTV. Wow, I'm such a wild woman, lol!

Today's 2Peas Challenge

2Peas challenge for today...challenge: what scrapbooking supply do you find yourself using on almost every LO?

No doubt about it, ribbon and/or flowers. I am totally obsessed with both. I probably have more ribbons than flowers though since I seem to find more bargains on the ribbon.

2Peas Blogging Challenge for Today

Today's 2Peas Blogging Challenge...challenge: are you a thrill seeker? what 'daring' things would you love to do?-such as sky diving ext.

I am absolutely not a thrill seeker. In fact, I couldn't be more opposite. The safer the situation, the better for me. Now I do love watching OTHER people perform wild & crazy stunts, but you'll never find me doing them.

2Peas Blogging Challenge for Independence Day

2Peas Challenge for July 4th...challenge: Do you have an traditions that you do every 4th of July? or what do you enjoy most about the 4th of July?

Well normally I'm on vacation right now, but when we're still in town on the 4th, we go up to a town a few miles north & watch the fireworks in the evening. I absolutely love watching them. They also have a parade in the afternoon, but we usually don't make it. Too busy lounging around & doing absolutely nothing!

Monday's 2Peas Blogging Challenge


Today's blogging challenge from 2Peas...challenge: what scrapbook paper line (or company) do you find yourself using often and what do you love about it?

I seem to use Pebbles Inc. products quite often. Not sure of any one reason why. The papers are heavier weight but with a smooth finish. Their lines tend to be simple with what I would call 'normal' colors. Nothing fancy or complex, just simple lines that do what they are meant to do. When I use stickers I like it when they are 'heavy' cardstock quality, which is how Pebbles stickers are. Funny thing is, if we were naming our favorite lines, I wouldn't have said Pebbles. But it is definitely one line that I use alot.

Sunday 2Peas Blogging Challenge

Sunday Blogger Challenge~ What do holidays mean to you? Do you have any special traditions for the holidays? What is your favorite holiday? Best holiday memory?

For some reason, holidays have never, for the most part, been especially exciting for me. Independence Day has always been my favorite followed by Christmas & Valentine's Day. As a family, we tend to celebrate several of the holidays on different days. Christmas with the whole family has always been on Christmas Eve. We do Christmas here with the kids on December 23rd. The whole family's Thanksgiving tends to be on a weekend at the beginning of November. Easter is usually on Palm Sunday. Labor Day weekend in this area is huge & always full of lots of events.

2Peas Blogging Challenge...Well This is Easy

2Peas' Challenge for today is rather easy for me...challenge:what is your dream summer vacation?
Umm, that would/could be anything. My favorite holiday, by far, is Independence Day. Up until this year, I've always taken my vacation from work starting with Fourth of July weekend. Sometimes, we haven't gone anywhere, but still took the time off with the kids. This year, due to changing jobs, I am going to lose out on vacation. But I guess I'm still so lucky to be starting the new job that I'll try not to complain too much :-)

My favorite summer vacation has definitely been in 2002 when we went to the Wisconsin Dells & then on to Minnesota. I truly fell in love with the entire state of Minnesota. I also realized that in Minneapolis/St. Paul, I have no sense of direction & got lost every day. But it is absolutely on my short-list of places to build a summer home when I become independently wealthy!
