To be young again!

The other day I was on my way to get my hair highlighted, oh my, it's only been 6 months!!! My hair was ugly! So, here I am driving to get my hair done and what comes on the radio???? Poison - Talk Dirty To Me! It took me back, way back. And what did I do???? I blasted the radio like I was a teen again, totally jammed out in my seat and shouted the words and YES! I do remember ALL the words, just like it was yesterday! It seems like lately I have been reminded of those younger years through conversations, going through bins (from our move 3 years ago!) and.... I even stumbled upon my old portfolio for modeling. I never made it big, just made a few bucks doing some fun photo shoots. I shared it with my kids and Caytlynn couldn't stop telling me that I was so pretty then - HAHA! So I will leave you with this - here's me about half my life ago ;) no wrinkles, no gray hairs and very little cellulite... ahhhh to be young again!

Here's a LO I did a while back of Cullen in my belly :)
I created this Build-a-book for CHA that I never posted.
And finally, a sneak peek of November's Monthly Kit at Scrap-Tastic

THanks for visiting me!

On a sad note...

I had to put my cat, Sofi, to sleep two weeks ago. I had her for 12 years and she was 15 years old. Sofi had a really bad limp and had lost a lot of weight in the past couple weeks. THe vet said that there was probably multiple issues with her and confirmed that it was her time to go. We could have done testing and given her medicine to prolong her life a little and it just seemed that she would just suffer more for my and my kid's selfishness. After she was put to sleep I let the girls say bye to Sofi one last time. Caytlynn and Cassidy were uncontrolablly sobbing as I also was. When I walked out of the room everyone in the waiting area had tears in their eyes and one sweet lady even gave me a hug. We all miss her terribly!
