I'm a winner! Yeah!


We have a winner to announce from last month's challenges :).....

Congratulations, Lori F

You have won any 3 digis of your choice!

Yeah! I"m so excited. Sweet & Sassy has the cutest digis! Thanks Korin for a chance to play each week. Your Cocoa images are so much fun to play with! I was suppose to work on the new challenge today, but got sidetracked. If any of you fellow cardmakers out there don't participate in Crazy 4 Cocoa Challenge go to the site and start today! So much fun!http://crazy4cocoachallenges.blogspot.com/

I was on my way back from my workout today when my husband called and said they got rained out and I needed to pick him up. On the way back to the apartment he told me we were going to Amish country. We drove to Lancaster, and had lunch at Millers! Yummy! ( so much for doing my 1200 calories today....sorry, partner) Then we went to many of the quaint little shops, and bought various items. One thing Jeff bought me was a picture with a quote printed on it that I fell in love with. I had to buy the smaller one as I didn't like the frames of the larger one, but I loved the quote. I'm going to post it:
"Life is not a race-but indeed a journey. Be honest. Work hard. Be choosy. Say "thank you", "I love you", and "great job" to someone each day. Go to church, take time for prayer.The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh. Let your handshake mean more than pen and paper. Love your life and what you've been given, it is not accidental-search for your purpose and do it as best you can. Dreaming does matter. It allows you to become that which you aspire to be. Laugh often. Appreciate the little things in life and enjoy them. Some of the best things really are free. Do not worry, less wrinkles are more becoming. Forgive, it frees the soul. Take time for yourself-plan for longevity. Recognize the special people you've been blessed to know. Live for today, enjoy the moment."- Bonnie L. Mohr

Jeff bought me two little signs at the fudge shop (yes, I know I shouldn't have been in there).
One has the word strength on it (like in the dictionary) and gives this definition:
The capacity to break a chocolate bar into four pieces with your bare hands...and then eat just one of the pieces. LOL!
The second one says: I am a Woman of many moods and they all require Chocolate!

How cute are those?
Well, we went to many shops and ended up at the Amish furniture store. Jeff said when he found out we were coming out here to work he knew he'd order our new dining room furniture from here. So, we ordered that today. It won't be ready for 9 weeks, but thats okay, we're not home to use it now anyway!
Tomorrow after my workout is laundry, and then back here to make cards until church! I'm excited to show you some of the new things I bought and my friend brought for me yesterday! yeah!
God blessed me with yet another great day! I hope all of you had a great day as well.
