What a nice surprise....

We had a wonderful family vacation last week [I'll be sharing more about that on a later post].

When we came home, I was thrilled to get the bag of the week's mail from our neighbors. Yeah, I'm one of those people who gets excited about the prospect of getting something fun in the mail ~ you should have seen how many times I checked my mailbox everyday when I was in college...
I received the nicest collection of scrappy goodies from my blogger friend, Chrispea. I had the chance to meet Chris in person when a bunch of CKMB scrapbookers met in Lancaster last year and she is just one of the sweetest people. I had won a random drawing on her blog a while ago for leaving a comment and even though she had emailed me and told me she was getting things together to send me, I'd been so busy, I kind of forgot about it.



All these great goodies....I can't wait to get scrapping. She even made me a cute little card, too. I especially love the blank chipboard book....I haven't decided what I'm going to do with it yet, but it'll be fun to come up with something good. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Chrispea!! You are too generous!

Speaking of which, I see that I'm creeping up on 6000 blog hits. I wanted to do a random drawing for some scrapbooking goodies when I hit 5000, but I missed the opportunity.

SO, to celebrate 6000 hits, I will be drawing a random number from those who leave me a comment on this post.

Tell me what you are most looking forward to this summer. You have until this Friday [tomorrow] at midnight EST to leave a comment. I will use a random number generator over the weekend and announce the winner! Oh, I'm so excited!!! My first giveaway!!! :) Hurry up and leave a comment!!

My friend in Hungary did a drawing on her blog. Not related to the number of hits, but I WON! That was before Christmas and I was supposed to pass it on! It was crazy and then I got sick w/ the pregnancy, but now I will do it! Thanks for reminding me! And, yeah, put me in your drawing. (I am 24 weeks--you asked me in your comment...thanks for saying I look "glowing". I just feel BIG right now!)

I'd love to win scrapbook goodies, cause maybe then I will put the nice book I have to use and actually make a scrapbook. Looking foward to being the mommy not the teacher, and hamburgers on the grill this summer :)

I am looking forward to not having ANY school work to do! Spending time with MAdeline and JAson will be a blast too!!

I love Love LOVE that you're doing a give-away!

This summer I am looking forward to enjoying long lazy fun summer days with my kids & hubby...whether on the beach or in our backyard - just making the most of it.

I'm also looking forward to our weekly visits to Grandmom's pool with all the kids.

Oh Amy,
How do you find the time to scrap and chase those adorable little men around? I can barely do laundry and keep the dishes cleaned! You are my inspiration!

This summer, we are going on a lot of walks. It tuckers the kids out and my mother was nice enough to get new "kid leashes" for me, so I will be able to take them to the park on my own. That should be hysterical!

Hope all is well!

I saw this post the other day and was about to leave a comment when something came up (imagine that). I can't remember what it was...not that it matters, but it must've been big, because I forgot to come back and comment! =)

I'm off to scrapbook tonight with my "cult", as Shane calls it! And in November, the group's going away for the weekend (just a 1/2 hour down the road...but still). 3 days and 2 nights of non-stop-crop! CAN'T WAIT. It was awesome last year and I'm so looking forward to it again this year. I know better what to expect, you know? Anyway, congrats on the giveaway.

A giveaway...how fun!
This summer I'm looking forward to lot of things...
The first thing is getting my LEED exam over with, the second is taking my kids down to DC to visit with my brother's family. I haven't been to DC since I was in college. I'm also looking forward to a week in Fenwick Island and of course CKC-Valley Forge.

First, congrats on winning all those scrapbooking goodies! I used those football stickers you got for one of my pages for Sofia in her Eagles gear :) Your pages always look great, I'm sure you'll make some great ones. I love scrapping, I just can't ever seem to find the time. I managed to finish my album on Sofia's 1st year just 2 weeks before my second daughter was born (and Sofia's 3 1/2!) Yikes. But I keep collecting pictures and stickers and stuff for when I have a few spare minutes to scrap. (And I have several albums I already bought that need filling!)

So let's see...this summer I'm looking forward to beach trips to Ocean City, MD with the family, several family birthday parties, steamed crabs & beer, and playing outside with my girls on the new Slip n Slide :)
