Ally Scraps LOs

Just posted my 3rd LO for Ally Scraps -- Fabulous 8. Didn't think I'd buy Sassafras Lass pps again but these papers somehow called out to me even before I had those pics.

I wasn't able to post about my 2nd LO, so here it is -- My Work Is Done. Christmas Day was so hectic that the only time I was able to take pics of Bianca in her new Santa outfit was when she fell asleep!

8 Years!

Here are some pics from our 8th Anniversary lunch at the Rooftop of the K'ya Restaurant in Laguna Beach. Vince and Diane were so kind to offer to watch the kids for us so we can drive off for a few hours. The Rooftop has the best view of Laguna Beach and had great food to match!

How I gained 8 lbs in 3 weeks!

Thanks to all these yummy treats, I am now having to starving myself to get back my pre-vacation body (and then some) asap. Next week I am definitely hitting the gym!

Weight gain culprits:
  • Caramel apples & Fudge from Disneyland's Main Street Confectionery

  • In N Out burgers and fries

  • Fuddruckers burgers -- sorry no photo of burgers
  • Trader Joe's Chocolate Truffles -- sorry no photo but have some in my fridge
  • Lunch at PF Chang's -- sorry no photo of food
  • Christmas Eve Dinner hosted by Ken & Karen Marz

  • Christmas Day

    Tito Romy's 70th Bday party

  • Our 8th Anniversary lunch at the K'ya Rooftop Lounge in Laguna Beach

    Ally Scraps GDT for Jan 2008

    My GDT stint at Ally Scraps has begun! I love all the goodies I got for my kit (and then some)! Check out my 1st LO for them here.

    We're all still recovering from jet-lag. The kids have been sleeping at 7:30pm and waking up at 3am the past 3 days! I think I'm almost over it since I woke up at 5am today so it's not so bad. Luis got home from school yesterday at 2:30 pm, took a nap and didn't wake up until 3am today! At least he had enough time to study for his test -- haha!

    I'm still trying to organize my life after the trip and backing-up vacation pics. Hopefully things will get back on track by next week.

    Happy New Year!

    Sorry been out of the loop for a while. Still vacationing here in the US but can't wait to get back home this week-end to work on my layouts for Ally Scraps and Scrapbooks N Stickers!

    The snow storm that cancelled our flight out of Chicago last Dec 28 was a blessing in disguise as I was able to get great snow pictures and make my 1st snowman! More "kwento" when I get back.
    Thanks to all those who left messages and sent me email greetings for the holidays! Will try to respond to you when I get back. Happy New Year Everyone!
    In the meantime, here are a few pics from our trip.
