Whirlwind Week!

My sister flew home with me on sunday Nov. 21st from our scrapbooking trip, we went clothes shopping, she got her tattoo, we took a jewelry class, went to girl's night out, then we made thanksgiving dinner together! Wow, we had a blast! I hope to do this every year what a fun tradition that would be!!
Here is the tattoo she got on her calf. It is the Ganesha. If you would like a custom tattoo please contact Jaci Greb at Skin Factory 702-263-1005

Turkey Day 2010

It was a small turkey day but fun! Travis and Rebecca could not come out due to taking lots of time off to get married and honeymoon! But we made due, Joe and Amy and Ethan stopped by, Ethan showed Christy how to play the Wii! He is a little champ at that!
We had all the traditional foods, and I made the most amazing green bean cassarole, you will never make it with canned soup again after trying this one!! It will be posted in my cooking blog soon!


Have a great weekend!

California Scrapping

I travelled to California to scrapbook with my sister Christy, and Mary. I got in early friday morning and Mary took me to her spa for a little pampering where I got a facial. I do not really enjoy those type of things but it was fun and my skin needed it!
After that we headed to Torrance where we checked in at the hotel and then we were off to scrap for the rest of the night and all day Saturday.
Strictly scrapbooking put the event on and they had an empty strip mall store for our crop room and then had their store next door for shopping! It was a nice layout but not like the old scrapfest where we could fill the long beach convention center! I guess most scrappers have gone digital!


 Sarurday we ran over to my mom's house where we met up with Travis and Rebecca, they brought us Ramona Burrito's! Yummy!! It was my mom's birthday last week! Nothing better then a Ramona Burrito Birthday lunch!!

 They all maintained control of the burrito's!
The Happy Scrapper, signing out until next time! Go out and live the life you were meant to live, as Red and Andy would say "Get busy living, or get busy dying"!

Until we meet again, Pattycakes!

Pat left us yesterday....she is up in heaven singing along with all the great ones!
What I will miss most...
1.She loved to dunk her pizza crust in her coffee, well, anything was not off limits for dunking to Pat!
2.She loved to sing along to the oldies they played in blueberry hill coffee shop, well,
anywhere we went she sang!
3. But, I will miss her most at bingo, we loved that game!
Good-bye Patty... I will see you again someday in that big bingo parlor in the sky and we will all be winners!

Louie Anderson...

I was able to get some tickets to see Louie Anderson, he is playing over at the Palace Station Casino, so Charlie and I went over Friday night and saw him. He was very funny, I laughed all the way through the show! If you get a chance go see him! Oh, I love Butter too!

Two Shows this week!

The GNO (girl's night out) club has been busy this week!
We had the Amazing Kreskin on Saturday night and then The Lion King Musical on Sunday night!
Two great shows!
Kreskin was funny and really had us all amazed, he guessed my license plate (creativcat) and he guessed Erin's address where she grew up! He also guessed her daughter Danelle's number she was thinking, 98!!


We had a fabulous dinner at: Queen Victoria's British Pub (inside the Riviera hotel) they offer traditional British and American favorites. Try the Stilton plate, a wedge of English blue cheese served with crackers or steak and kidney pie. Traditional fish and chips, bangers and mash and Sheppard's pie, bubble and squeak, it was all good! I had the Fish and Chips, the first visit, and then Rare roast beef sandwich the second visit, Delicious!

The Lion King was fantastic! The costumes were so well done! The music was beautiful, I really enjoyed this show! A must see if you are heading to Vegas! It is playing at the Mandalay Bay hotel.
Hope you can get out and see a show or try a new dish at a local restaurant soon!
I Love Las Vegas!

Fall is Fabulous!

Fall is really warm this year and I am loving every minute of it! It is still 85* outside and I am still in a tank top and sandals!
But we do have to start thinking about winter/christmas, so please remember to shop online at Etsy.com and support a starving artist...Like Me!!
http://www.peaceloveandartshop.com/

Well, I may not be starving but I do appreciate any business I can get!

On that note you must check out my cooking blog too, I have some new recipes posted! A nice chicken and noodle recipe to get us ready for all that good comfort food we eat during winter!

I have one last scrapbooking trip in Long Beach for the year. Then it will be Thanksgiving time, it should be fun this year, my sister and her husband, and charlie's sister from New Zealand will be here (we hope). I will be posting turkey photos soon enough!

Have a fun and fabulous fall,
Jackie
