Ash starts her basketball games this Saturday, so we will be up to our eyeballs with games and travel and practices and more travel....but, it's all good and I wouldn't have it any other way.
Hopefully I'll get some decent pics of Jordan in his Wildcat b-ball uniform! Need to get busy on a b-ball mini album for him!!!

So when Ash was a baby, people would tell me she looked like the Olsen twins. I was usually not too pleased with that observation because I thought they were ugly as babies. I know, rude huh? I mean babies are supposed to be cute, and I guess they were cute, in their own ugly way, kinda like a pug is ugly/cute!! So as Ash has been getting older and hittin those tween years, I've been hearing more along the lines of her lookin like Cameron Diaz. I think this pic really reminds me of Cameron...what do ya'll think?
So here are a couple more of her, we went to a church activity with the youth and hit a corn maze, at night, in the dark, with a bunch of tweeners and teeners!! The ear piercing screams could be heard from miles away!
There were a few farm animals around too, on account of it being held on a farm and all. I thought this little guy was adorable.
Pig in a Blanket anyone??!! This struck me as hilarious, my ex-husband is in a band called "Pigs in a Blanket", so named because the majority of the band members worked for the police dept. Pigs/cops, get it? Anywho, it got me gigglin a little bit.

Interesting that I end up being Elizabeth. Pride and Prejudice is the only Jane Austen movie that I've seen more than once. I've seen the newer version with Keira Knightly and the A&E version with Colin Firth. Have to say I definitely liked the newer version better, I know, I know...I have arguments with the guys in my office as to why the newer one is better. They all like the older version. That's fine!! I love taking quizzes...it's fun. So take it, and see what Austen character you are!

I got a late start today on card making, so I only got one finished, think I will just make several of this one and call it good! It's too late and I'm too tired to start on something different. This was Shanna's sketch from the Create My Keepsake challenge.
Sorry for the blurry pic...I SO need a better camera and a class!

Speakin of soccer season!! Here's a proud soccer mom moment!! Ash has stuggled a little bit this season with playing a little too much with the ball......she's watched "She's the Man" WAY too many times! LOL, Well this game was completely different...no playing, she was serious. She scored 3 goals and had 2 assists. It was Awesome!! I hope it had nothing to do with the fact that her dad was there........and that it's just her improving her game........hmmm. I guess time will tell, but it sure was exciting to watch.
Shanna is having a contest over at her blog using one of her patterns..so on this layout, the first page I used her scroll frame for my journaling block. This was a trip to Hogle Zoo in Salt Lake with my Sis and her family, my mom and dad. We had a great time and it was fun to see all the animals....it was a little chilly and rainy, but those are the kind of days that I love!! Shanna's contest ends Friday at Midnight, so anyone that wants to join in still has time.

He was in the group from CO and then there was a group from GA, my group from UT, and a group from CA, and we all went on this 15 day trip through Europe. We became pretty good buds on this trip, you get pretty tight with certain people you spend time with and hang with constantly for 2 weeks...... and he was one of them. We kept in touch after our trip, he even flew to Vegas when I got married, we tried to keep in touch and did for a few years, but it's been 12 years since I've even talked to him.
Well he was in Vegas for a conference, he had been trying to find my number, tried to remember my parents names, even tried calling the police dept to talk to my ex. Of course Chad doesn't know I'm divorced, he just remembers that I lived in Vegas and since he was there would look me up. He doesn't have any luck, but this conference also has law enforcement personnel in attendance and he figures he'll just ask someone if they happen to know my ex. The first lady he asks totally knows my ex, and Chad says well I'm actually looking for his wife, she tells him that we were divorced......well she ends up getting Mike's work number for him, Chad calls Mike, Mike gives Chad my number and there ya have it.........reconnected.
I took half the day off yesterday, drove to Vegas and hung out with Chad the rest of the night...it was SO good to see him, we sat and talked for hours, reminisced about Europe, talked about our lives, kids, divorce, work, etc. I finally had to leave and got home at 2 a.m., freakin dead tired and grateful I got home without falling asleep. So now we are definitely going to keep in touch and not let another 12 years go by without talking. In fact, I think the next long weekend I have, I might just head in his direction!!

First I had a date planned with V for Friday night, he lives in the Salt Lake area. I made plans with him because my friend Twila and I were going up to see our other friend Cheri...Twila ended up not being able to go and then I was kinda stuck with this date. I would have cancelled on him, but I already did that once to him and felt bad, wishing that I at least would have gone out once with him. So, not wanting to break his little heart (yeah right;) I drove up Friday afternoon so we could go out around 7ish. Well V shows up at 7:30....that to me isn't 7ish...it's 7:30ish.... ...anyway, we go to dinner. He says he's pretty hungry, I haven't eaten for awhile, but am not starving, so we go to this place called Rumbi Island Grill, check out the menu outside first, then he asks me how hungry I am...I said I wasn't THAT hungry, so he says well lets just order one meal and share it. Huh? Um okay .......so he orders and only orders us ONE drink..to share. At least he likes Diet Coke, but honey, I can down a half gallon of DC in one sitting and he has us sharing one 20oz. Oh my! Then we go to the movie, that's fine, I love movies......and he holds my hand and "cuddles" with me the whole movie. By this time, I was kinda hopin that maybe I would be excited to be "holding hands" with someone,but nah..........nope, not at all.
Movie gets over, he takes me home, we sit and talk for awhile and then he walks me to the door, a hug and a kiss....and there ya have it. Definitely not the worst date I've been on, just a little weird.
Was chatting with B online and he proceeds to ask me if I want to meet and make-out with him. Ummmmm, was there some kinda time warp that put me back in high school that I'm not aware of? Hello...do people still do that? Have make-out buddies??? I mean I guess if he was drop dead gorgeous I could justify a little gratuitous bumpin and grindin.......but then again.....NO. LOL. I can't just make out for the sake of makin out. There has to be some sort of relationship, not just friends with benefits!
Last one, I promise! I've been talking with J for over a month, we have had so many long deep, meaningful conversations, I really like him. I just don't like him the way he likes me. And I'm sad that we can't talk anymore,but it would be harder for both of us to continue talking when I know that I'm not feeling that way and I know that the more we talk, the more he likes me......hmmm such a dilemma because I really do need a good friend. I think it's hard though for men and women to be "just friends" somewhere along the line, someone starts to have feelings for the other one. ......and that is great if the feelings are mutual..it just sucks when they are not.
So, for right at this moment, I've only got one person that I'm still kinda chatting with, I hope to get to meet him someday soon, but if not that is totally fine by me!! This dating crap gets emotionally exhausting after awhile. Time to take a break!!

On another topic.....being single is starting to get real old. Dating sucks! I've been doing a little online dating, you can do everything else on line, why not date as well? One guy I have chatted with a few times just said "Hi hot panties" I said, "excuse me?" he said he thought I would appreciate that comment. Um, hello..........not. Who says things like that? I mean really. Needless to say I don't care at all to talk to him again. Ever. Sheesh. Is it too much to ask for a normal guy....and I know some of you may think "well, that is normal for a guy"........but please tell me there are some normal men out there that wouldn't say something like that.
