I have been looking for sites that can publish my blog into an actual book for our family to keep-
this is the only one I have found so far- www.blurb.com
Does anyone out there know of another ?

It's all about me...

I was "double dared" to do this (Laura then Sarah), but the funny thing is- I did not have to be dared. There are a lot of things I will do without being dared- LOL.
Two names I go by-
1. Suz
2. mama
Two things I am wearing right now-
1. hot pink warm socks (it is ice cold today)
2. wedding ring
Two of my favorite things to do-
1. Take pictures of my kids
2. Vacation
(guess which one I do too much & which one I hardly ever do)
Two things I want badly at this moment-
1. Loose 15 lbs.
2. Win the lottery
Two of my favorite pets I have ever had-
1. I have 2 right now (Gracie & Brigette) that I only like a little bit. If you add them together- that = 1.
2. Woody, our cocker spaniel when I was age 4ish -11.
Two things I ate today-
1. Healthy Choice frozen vegetable pizza
2. Frosted mini wheats
Two people I last talked to-
1. Jack- "No, you may not play on the Internet- mommy is!"
2. A man called from our church about taking the pictures for our next church directory- yea!
Two people who will fill this out-
Robin- because I will ask her nicely.
Lindsey- because it is time for a new post already!
Two things that I am doing tomorrow-
1. Ethan & Jack have basketball games.
2. Amy's Bridal Session- weather permitting
Two longest car rides
1. Several to/ from Colorado & New Mexico.
2. We drove from Pennsylvania to Garland when we moved back to Texas in 1989.
Two favorite holidays-
1. I have to say Christmas- I love all the traditions!
2. My birthday- St. Patrick's Day! Although, I always have this great birthday built up in my head & it hardly ever turns out to be how I picture it. I need to start downplaying it- so anything will be great!
Two favorite beverages-
1. Diet Coke with vanilla easy ice (Sonic)
2. Mojitos- I have only had 1, but it was tasty!
Two favorite T.V. Shows-
1. Friday Night Lights
2. Biggest Loser

It's a pain to be beautiful!

I never do this- but today I thought I would curl Lily Kate's hair for church. She was such a baby! Now I know what I will do next time she is a stinker to me- I will get even! Bring out the curlers!
After she stopped crying- I took them out- held her up to the mirror so that she could check herself out. She was all smiles...

These are a few of my favorite things...

Wild Sorbet
this is my friend, Shannon's little girl- Riley. She was in my pre-school class last year. Isn't she beautiful- I just want to eat her up! Shannon & her husband just opened up this great deli in Mansfield. Go check it out! Tell them I sent you & you will get absolutely nothing for free!

K. Cooper Jewelry Design
These are the "boutique" items (frames & jewelry) that I have decided to sell through Southern Exposures. So cool! I found them both while in Florida.

This has nothing to do with my business, but I wanted to show you what my good friend, Shaunda, has been up to. She has started her own T-shirt business. The designs are awesome! I need one for Lily Kate & I.

I am also in love with these cool necklaces. My friend, Jennifer, that I was in club with (Yea Kojies!) makes them. I also need one of these!

My most recent favs...

I haven't taken many pictures of my own children lately. Not so much going on.
But our BASKETBALL season (for both boys) begins this Saturday. So, get ready! Donald is coaching both teams & loving every minute of it!
We're all busy with the normal stuff. Blah, blah, blah...
Donald received his acceptance letter today for the DPT program (doctorate of physical therapy). We are excited, but I know that we have a crazy 2 years ahead of us. It will be fun laughing at him when he "does his homework" while I lay on the couch watching "my soaps" & eating bon-bons.

P.S. I do not watch soap operas anymore. Gone are the days of skipping chapel & watching Days of our Lives in my ACU dorm room...
and I have never had a bon-bon.

Enough Already!

Okay. Who watched Grey's Anatomy last night? I have decided that I hate Meredith Grey. Even though I do not know her because she is not real- I feel like I would say really mean words to her if I ever ran into her! I hope this is the final REAL break up. SHE IS SO- ANNOYING!
Okay. I am done. I feel better
Happy Friday!

There is no place like home

Jenn & I outside waiting for our shuttle back to our hotel. (I feel like this is where we spent half of our trip.) Our shuttle driver was a German with a split personality (I think).
I am so happy to be home! I had such a great time! But, of course, I missed my babies!!!
I learned so much at our workshop. I feel inspired (and a little overwhelmed)! I don't know where to start! I wish I could spend like crazy- then I would know where to start!
I hope that ya'll had a great weekend (and back-to-school for most of us). I'll write more about it later- much to do!

2008 is starting off great!

I am so excited!!! I will be in Tampa for the next 4 days attending Imaging USA.
My friend, Jenn, & I hope to come back with some great new ideas for our photography businesses. The fam will be here. My mom-in-law is coming to help D as the kids go back to school on Tuesday. I can't wait to hear how their 4 "mom-free" days go. I am sure I will have a funny story or 2 to share about that. Until then...

New Year's Rockin' Eve

Our sweet friends, Corey & April, invited us over to eat, play "84" & let the kids run around like crazies. We had a great time! Poor Ethan is always the oldest when we get together with friends. He either ends up the "babysitter" or tries to keep up with adult conversations. I don't think either are very fun for him.
*If my friends out there in blogland think that I have way too much time on my hands because of all the recent posts- I do. Donald's car is broken which has left me stranded at home for 2 days. Yes, I could clean something, but this is way more fun. Plus, I can see the crazy days of school, basketball & work coming back too soon & I will not be able to play on the computer. I am not at all ready. It is 2:50 p.m. & I am still in my pj's. What a life! I even had to order pizza for lunch because I have no car to go buy groceries. Lily had diet coke with her breakfast this morning. I am such a good mom!
