Today’s the Day

For you to get yourself a WPlus9 Ever After stamp set and for me to get a Chip and PIN (EMV) bank card!!! Yes, I am going to be like the Western Europeans and a lot of other countries (some Asians too I think… not sure about African countries and E. Europe) and no swipe and sign when using my debit/credit card. Half the time it’s been a stinkin’ hassle keeping our American bank card. How does one use this chip card? You use a chip card like you’d use your credit/debit card at an ATM station, the machines that

Help Me Decide!

On a bed and breakfast in France!! I have Chardon Room and Buttercup/Autumn Leaf to choose from. There are no reviews on them but they all look good, three (French) stars, and breakfast included in the price. I am having a hard time because, I’m not sure which way we’re driving back. We need to catch a ferry in Dunkirk, France, I haven’t purchase yet but aiming for 4p (with a 3:30p check-in). From the Chardon we can go via the French highway, which is paid toll, and will cost around 22 Euros + 4 hrs, or through Belgium which

Celebrate Today

Today was a great day… actually this week should be a great week because: I have everybody here with me, no school for M and off work for hubby I got a lot of projects done I got invited to do something super fun — still a secret {::SMILES} We did all the dishes (BIG deal for me!!) We had a yummy salmon dinner, no head! Here’s one project I did today. I used 2S4Y’s sketch for this card. I was going through some die-cuts and found this butterfly. I think I prefer it a bit bigger but it’s pretty

Market Saturday

I look forward to Saturdays. Saturdays is market day and today we went to the Bury St. Edmunds market. I think this is my favorite market. It’s bigger than the other one we’ve been going to, Ely, and if you’re there in the later part of the afternoon some of the stalls sound like auction sites. The men would be screaming out bargains. Two for two they’d say or whatever’s in the bucket is a pound. These are our loot from today: I think this was about £12 of goodies. The bread there is DELICIOUS!! It’s almost 10 p.m. here

Happy Friday!

Watcha doing today? The family’s going to M’s BBQ this evening. This is her last full week at school. After next Wednesday M’s going to be in year 2 aka first grade! Oooooh, my baby is growing up!!!! The BBQ is at her school. They’re also having a fundraising and one of the booth is a £ drink booth. Ok, what’s the chance of finding this booth in the US? Alcohol on school grounds? Good thing we walk to school — oh, gotta remember to bring cash {::SMILES}!! I haven’t done a digital page in a few weeks now. The

Father’s Day Weekend

The girls have an awesome dad. Emma knows it and Jovie will too (M ADORES her daddy!!). Although hubby can be strict he’s not scary, he’s very fair, and he is a VERY fun and funny guy. Even after he puts M in time out they’d be laughing and giggling again soon after. It’s so so nice! One day they’ll also know that their dad is great to talk to… except about PMS and bras. The girls are lucky and I think the verse above is perfect for their father’s day card. If they don’t end up being like him
