Sale and 10 about me...

Check out the HUGE sale at If you are looking to buy some new scrapping stuff at super great deals, you won't want to miss this! Check back throughout the day! Right now all kits are only $13, that's $5 off! And all add-on's are only $5! This is only good until the next post goes up, so hurry over! I posted this on the kit blog, but I thought I would add it here too! Check out 10 random things about me...Good night everyone!

1. I love Ingrid Michaelson and Mindy Gledhill..I love dancing and singing their music with Emma. She LOVES the song All the Pennies by Mindy Gledhill. If she is grumpy, I sing it and she laughs and laughs!

2. I love Chicago summers, especially Cubs games. We go to A LOT of cubs games, but I despise Chicago winters, and wonder every year (right about now), why I live here!

3. I am obsessed with Christmas...really obsessed. For instance, I have been listening to the all Christmas, all the time radio station in my car for 2 weeks already.

4. In other things I am obsessed with, Paris. I have been 3 times, and think about it every day! Not joking! I took many years of French and pretty much love anything anyway related to Paris, or France! Especially the Eiffel tower! The first thing I bought Emma, was an Eiffel Tower keychain last Christmas when I was in Paris, and I have a matching one!

5. I have a thicker obsession! My DH hates thickers (well, the money I have spent on them). I have about 100 packs!

6. I was a school teacher in the city until about 2 months ago. When I went back from maternity leave, I lasted 3 weeks, and then couldn't handle being away from Emma. Or I couldn't handle the out of control kids, not sure which!

7. I have 2 fur babies. A dog, Wrigley (did I mention I love the Cubs) and a cat, Illini ( me and DH both went to University of Illinois!

8. I have 2 expensive Master's degrees and an expensive bachelor's degree...and don't use any of them! OOPS!

9. I am obsessed with a Chicago restaurant, called Mayan Palace..I mean it is crazy! They know me and DH and my order! I literally call for take out and say, "This is Devon," and they know what I want! Pathetic...Yes!

10. I simply love being a mother and am ready to be pregnant again! Everyday with Emma makes me want to have more and more babies..DH and I are so crazy about her, it is insane..I had no idea. He thinks I just want to be pregnant so I can go back in the hospital! I really loved being in the hospital after my C-section! I don't know why, but every time I drive past my hospital, I wish I was in it!

Couple layouts....and I'm exhausted!

OMG! I am so tired, this is after I just crashed for 2 hours with Emma! One of the disadvantages to having a husband who travels a lot is that I am home a lot ALONE with the peanut! It was nice to have some alone time pre-baby, but now, not so much! All day and all night, it is just me and the crazy one...and she is crazy! Now that she is mobile-ish, she is everywhere...I say ish because she isn't crawling but she rolls and scoots from one end of the house to the other! Oh well, only a couple more days before Chris gets back from London!

In other news, I did a couple layouts for Catch the Moments Kits! First one using the Festive kit and that basic grey doilie! This is from last christmas when we went to Paris!

The next one I made using the Jolly kit and add-on! Love that vintage feel! It is about being pregnant last christmas! Oh last year, I was pregnant and in Paris! Is it bad that I REALLY miss being pregnant (and in Paris)?!?!?

Thanks everybody! And Catch the Moments Kits is having the BIGGEST SALE EVER Friday! To celebrate the Friday before Black Friday, get some great deals on scrapping stuff and brand new awesome scrapping stuff..check back tomorrow for details and Friday for the sale! Night all!
