Work is Awesome!

I had the BEST day at work today! I did an elfa demo/presentation for the first time, and it was SO fun! My co-workers were SO encouraging supportive! And I was able to help a whole bunch of customers. I also did most of the announcements and took care of the new products. I left work feeling very inspired and motivated. What a great day!

p.s. I did finish another layout today too. I love white cardstock. I love simple layouts. I can't forget that. :-)

Family Get-Together and Scrapping. :-)

Larry and Jesse came over for dinner tonight. It was so nice to have them over!

And I scrapped THREE pages! Oh, that was so fun! I'm loving this Studio Calico kit right now... totally inspiring! :-D

Sickness and Basketball.

I wasn't feeling well today, so Jeremy stayed home to take care of me. That was so nice. :-) He really is awesome.

Later on in they day, I was feeling better, so we walked to the park. We brought the basketball, and that was pretty cool. I think it will be fun if we continue to go! I *almost* beat him at "Horse." Tee hee. Next time!

28 at 28.

1. I eat toast, vanilla yogurt and chocolate milk (Carnation Instant Breakfast) every morning for breakfast.

2. I wear fleece pants and a long sleeve shirt to bed each night.

3. I still sleep with a stuffed animal: my Build-A-Bear bear, Samantha. :-)

4. Jeremy and I hug and kiss about ten times a day.

5. Jeremy and I call each other about five times a day... at least. (I should really count... LOL.)

6. I try to call my mom and dad every day.

7. Having hot tea before bed is one of my very favorite rituals.

8. I still watch A LOT of Friends and Glee on DVD. Tee hee.

9. I think a lot. All the time. I never stop thinking. My mind never rests. Sometimes, this is frustrating.

10. I try to cuddle the puppies every day. I love when they lick my face.

11. I miss coaching gymnastics, and every day, I consider going back...

12. I love dolls and stuffed animals, and I love having them sitting in my scrap room.

13. If a scrapbooking layout is taking too long (longer than an hour or two), I usually want to give up and move on.

14. I drink water, Crystal Light Pure Fitness, tea, chocolate milk, homemade Italian sodas, and grapefruit juice. That's all. :-)

15. I don't think I ever leave work feeling unhappy or frustrated. I'm almost always in a good mood after work. :-D

16. I feel anxious if my house is messy.

17. I LOVE being outside. If I'm outside for a while, and then I go inside, I get a nervous, yucky feeling. Ew.

18. I want to write a book. I haven't decided on what yet...

19. I love making YouTube videos.

20. I have a love/hate relationship with staying up late.

21. I have to get, at least, ten hours of sleep to feel good.

22. Eco-Lips Mint chapstick is the BEST, and I carry it with me wherever I go.

23. I'm not very good at managing my time.

24. I can't sleep well when Jeremy is out of town.

25. I wear earplugs to bed every night.

26. I could probably live off pizza, chocolate milk, tacos, pot roast and my homemade cheesecake. I wonder if I'd get sick of those foods? I probably would... LOL.

27. The Sound of Music and Love Actually are STILL my favorite movies.

28. I listen to the Glee soundtracks and Taylor Swift... pretty much exclusively.

Taffy and Babies. Mmmm. :-)

I ordered three pounds of Steel's saltwater taffy, and I got it in the mail today. YUM. I ate WAY too much of it. WAY too much. Feelin' kinda sick now, but I don't care. It was fun to eat that much at once! ;-)

I don't know for sure, but I think it's the same taffy Mona bought for Ross in Friends. I'm such a crazed fan. LOL. :-p

I also got to meet Lyndsey's new baby, Sebastian today. SO cute and sweet. :-) She said next time she has a baby, she wants the drugs... LOL.

Grandpa's Birthday!

Today was Grandpa Pendzimas' birthday! He had to spend it in the hospital because he's still recovering from surgery. Ah well. He was a good sport about it, and I was able to call him and tell him that I ordered his measuring cups from The Container Store. He can't wait to get them! Yay! :-)

And my favorite memory of him? I thought I'd mention that today. The Del Mar Fair... just the two of us. I'm pretty sure I was ten. He spoiled the socks right off me that day. It was so nice to be his only grandchild... for only one day. He made me feel like a million dollars. I love that we've always had a special bond. :-)

I Heart Elizabeth So Much!

After work, we went over to Elizabeth's to watch the Academy Awards. I really liked how they introduced the Best Actor and Best Actress noms. Very cool. Poor Jeremy was so tired, he couldn't even make it all the way through!

Afterward, Elizabeth and I had SUCH a nice talk. I am SO blessed to have a friend like her. We talked till 1:30am. She reminded me that I can't go back to the Reyanna I used to be, but I can create a new one that I *want* to be. That inspired me. That girl has so much wisdom in under 28 years!

And what she said made me think of The Shawshank Redemption...

"Get busy livin. Or get busy dyin."

I was planning on hanging out with Hillary today, but I felt so crappy. So I stayed in bed instead. LOL. Then I went to work, and that was actually a pretty fun time. :-)

This was a pretty uneventful day. *sigh* Ah well.

He's Home On Time!

This whole week has been so nice because Jeremy has been home at reasonable hours. Yay. :-) I think we both needed a break from the craziness! :-p

Friends and Frozen Yogurt.

Got to call Jennifer today to wish her a happy birthday. Was so nice to hear her voice. I told her I miss coaching, and she told me she doesn't. LOL.

Then Elizabeth, Jeremy and I went out for frozen yogurt. Yum. I mixed raspberry FY with cheesecake-flavored FY, and that was TASTY.

Sleeping and Poms.

Today was SUCH a nice day, but I could barely enjoy it because I was so tired. I took three naps... meaning, I pretty much slept all day long. Save a bike ride and cuddling with the dogs next door, who escaped into our backyard...

They are so obnoxious when they're on their side of the fence, but once they came over to our side, they were SUCH sweeties! They wanted to cuddle and lick my face and sit on my lap and just be loved on. That made me feel kinda sad... like maybe they just don't enough of that at home, and that's why they're always trying to get over here.

This one, Charlie, LOVES me. LOVES me.

I told him to go home, so he did, and I went back inside. Then he came back to our back door and pawed at it like a crazy dog until I gave him some more lovin. LOL. Silly puppy.

Crazy day. LOL.

Fun with Friends.

We had dinner and margaritas (at Jardin Corona) with Jamie and Elizabeth tonight. We had SO much fun! We laughed SO much. And when we got home, I was SO tired... I could barely talk or type. LOL. I'm so glad we have friends to be silly with. :-p

(This was written after the fact... LOL.)

Walks Are So Nice.

We went for a nice walk tonight. We're hoping to go on more nice walks. We can't wait till it's warm every day again.

May through September, we miss you! And we can't wait to have you here again! ;-)
