I decided to play the counter game again. I have learned alot about counters since last time, so I am much more prepared.

First of all I put my counter right in this post, so it is easy to find. Secondly I have come to the understanding that because of the way the counter works it is possible for more than one person to win. Please forgive me for my lack of understanding last time. FYI, visiting my blog several times in an hour will not significantly increase you chances of winning. Somehow the counter know that you keep coming back.
That being said, I have a plan. If you do stop by and the counter says 9999 (because it is so much cooler than 10,000) simply take a screen shot. I have been told that you can do this by pressing "ctrl" and "print screen" at the same time. Then, open up something you can paste a picture into (like microsoft word) and press "ctrl v" to paste. After you've pasted it in there, you can email it to me at Javiara4227@hotmail.com
Any and all people who do this will receive a $5 coupon to my store at DAC. If we hit 9999 before the end of the month $5 will almost be enough for 2 kits thanks my everything is $2.70 sale.
As a consolation prize, if you are not the 9999th visitor please leave a comment with your name and e-mail adress and I'll get you a coupon for $1 off any kit.
I think that's all. I am super excited, and hopefully this goes much smoother than last time.

Hippy Easter

I know it's been quite a while since I teased you with the layout, but Hippy Easter is finally done. I had orginally wanted to do something a little more retro, but I am much happier with what I came up with. Because I am so excited, I made you a little freebie.

They are coming to get me

Earlier today Caibo was outside screaming just about as loud as he can (not as loud as he did at Walmart today though). I went to see what was wrong. He sobbed, "Cody pushed me" and then proceeded to tell me all the mean and terrible things Cody had done to him. By the way, Cody is a girl.
Just now, he heard a siren. He declared, "Oh no! They are coming to get me!" I asked him what he did. He replied, "I pushed Cody."
It always is interesting when the whole truth comes out.

Shoe shopping with caibo

I finally broke down and bought Caibo a new pair of shoes. We have been looking at shoes for him for quite a while now. We have looked at sandals and crocs with pretty much any cartoon character you could ever want, but there has never really been anything that he really loves.....until today.

Personally, I think these are the most obnoxious shoes on the planet, but to Caibo they are the coolest shoes ever designed. It is probably because they are green. He is so proud of them. He keeps showing them to everyone and telling them that they have laces. I guess having shoes that have laces instead of velcro is pretty prestigous.
Unfortunately, I couldn't think of a valid reason not to let him get them. I guess atleast it will be easy for me to find something green for him to wear tomorrow.

The official Birthday report (incase you were curious)

I had an awesome and mostly uneventful Birthday. It started yesterday when my mom took me out to lunch. We went to the Mongolian BBQ, and my kids were the best they have ever been in a restaurant. If you have ever been out to eat with my kids, you know what I mean. We're thinking it's the chop sticks.
On the way to lunch we had to stop at the bank and pick up a check. I sold a puppy!!! I decided to check to see when my checking to savings transaction takes place, because I had no money and wasn't really interested in having an overdraft fee. The teller couldn't figure out why I was so concerned. I told her that I had no money. She looked at me like I was crazy. It turns out Jerry got paid. Hooray! I can pay my bills and buy food.
I had to work last night and this morning. My brother-in-law was kind enough to take both of my kids overnight. Because I had no kids, I got to go to the grocery store by myself last night.
Today I went to work. We get our shipments on Sunday, so my job is usually to hold down the store until they are done with shipment. About noon, the truck driver finally called. She had just barely left Las Vegas. She wasn't even going to be there until 2:30. I was scheduled to go home at 2. That meant that there was pretty much no point in me being there, so they let me go home 2 hours early.
I tried to call my brother-in-law to get my kids, but they were still at church. I went home and got to watch grown up TV (you know, the kind that's not animated).
I got lots of birthday wishes. Thank you everyone!!
The best and funniest part was when I got to talk to Jerry. He asked some other dude how much time he had left to talk. He was told about a minute. He was quite, so I said "this is the part where you tell me happy birthday" He had totally forgotten my birthday, but I'm not mad. I would forget it too if I was at boot camp.
Tomorrow my mother-in-law is taking us to dinner. I'm very excited, and I'm thinking maybe we should take some chop stick to entertain the kids.

It's my birthday

Instead of one free QP I'm giving you 3, because it's my birthday and I like freebies. If you haven't found the already there are four more free QP's using Spring Fever in previous posts.

And while I have your attention, I am also having a huge sale for my Birthday. Today (March 15th) everything is 73% off. Then everything will be $2.70 each until the end of the month.

I took Caibo with me to the post office to mail a package to Jerry today. While we were waiting, he started talking to some of the people in line. He told them, "I send the box to daddy. He's very hungry." I'm not sure what he thought I put in the box, but there wasn't anything edible in there.

Spring's Song

For those of you who may be looking for a way to scrap the softer side of spring, I have something to show you. Rachael has recently released the gorgeous kit Spring Song. It's soft warmth will look amazing with pretty much any spring picture you could pull out.

Spring Fever

Well, it has been one crazy week, but I survived. Working so many hours in one week sucked, but I guess I'll get over it when I get my paycheck.
I know I have been promising a spring kit for like a month now. I am proud to announce that I finally got it done. Check it out!

Since my birthday is coming up, I have decided to switch things up a little, and give away the QP album one page at a time.... starting with my favorite. Also, with my birthday coming there is sure to be a sale , so keep checking by for details.
This is what I did with the QP. The pictures are probably what make it my favorite.

Reading the wrong line

So last week, being the newly responsible person I am, I wrote down my entire work schedule and found babysitters for the entire week. I was so proud of myself. I had it all figured out. Well, Monday rolled around, and I went to do the center time thing only there was no center time because of the Suessical. Because I had a bit of free time I took Caibo into work. (I was hoping we could find something to replace his falling apart blanket that he drags everywhere, but that's a totally different story.) I was immediately confronted by like 3 different people wanting to know why I wasn't at work on Sunday. I kept telling them that it was because I wasn't scheduled Sunday. None of them believed me, so I walked back and looked at the schedule. Ooops! I had read the wrong line for the entire week. I was kindof glad I went in though. I was totally going to go to work that night.

The birds go Out to Play

Rachael has made some really fun little birdies. You may recognize some of them from her kits, but some of them are brand new. You can get the entire set in her store Did I mention that they are a commercial use product?
Also, I totally forgot yesterday. Here are my layouts with Out to Play.

Out to Play

Can you believe it is already March? Me neither. Well, the good thing about March here is that it is the most beautiful time of year. Hooray!! It is warming up, and I am sending my kids and puppies Out to Play. It most be warming up other places too because Out to Play is the name of the March collab kit at DAC. This kit contains pretty much anything you could ever dream of adding to a layout of your fun times outside. Check it out. You can get it Here

Also, Rachael is having a fun little challenge over at her blog I'll explain it quickly here. Basically, go to your pictures folder, find the 6th folder and pick the 6th picture in that folder and make a layout with it using one of her kits. The winner gets an awesome prize. You can get all the details here

This is my picture for the challenge. Thankfully, I have been slacking about organizing my pictures. If I had been on task I never would have been able to figure it out. I am a vicious organizer of pictures. I have folders inside of folders inside of folders.
