Brown...




One of the reasons that one of my favorite colors is brown is in direct relation to the many brown things that bring me constant joy...
first the obvious

coffee, chocolate, naked chipboard, naked husband (he's hispanic sorry but had to go there.. lol) and yes in that order...

but then there are those brown things that bring you once in a while surprise joy delivered by people dressed in, of course, brown (Rob always says he wishes he could get me as exicted as the UPS man) oh and as a side note we have friends, Katrina and Shawn (parents of the twins in one of my older posts) anyway he is a UPS man, who we refer to fondly as "Brown", and ... according to Katrina, I'm not the only one who falls victim to the wiles of UPS men, she says he gets hit on all the time....anyway back to the subject today I recieved a gift of happiness all the way from New Zealand!!! Janine aka Angel girl, sent me a taste of New Zealand today! She's taking a vacation from blogging for a few weeks, (it's summer there) but you can go to her blog still, she has lots of fun stuff there...





my kids and husband are already devouring the candy, which is really good....yummy....Thanks Janine!!!



Last night I finished this book...



This is book number 2 in the Aisling Grey detective series...I really like these, they're not your "run of the mill" ...Katie Macalister has a very fun, wittiness about her. Aisling Grey is a courier, Guardian to a gate to hell (although she doesn't know which one yet) a demon lord (but she's a good guy and her demon is a newfoundland), and a wyvern mate (basically a dragon's mate, which is a rare thing).It's a fun ride. There are two more books in the series. My copy came to me free via paperback swap. com see my link to the right...this is a really fun way to get books especially if you're like me and you buy a book practically every time you leave the house.


I've also been working on some layouts
Here's the 30 minute Thursday challenge from Lain at Scraphappy which was to use Rub ons on a layout...doesn't get easier than that folks so go check her out.


The rub on is the title and journaling up in the right hand corner "phrase cafe diary by EK success", I bought up a bunch of these on a scrapbooking shopping trip sometime ago and this is the first time I've used one...I love these!!

and Pencil lines Sketch #62..I've been late getting these done lately, but I really like the way they all turned out



Here are some pictures of what we've been busy doing this morning...




Now I have to go get ready for Rob's squadron Christmas party, my friend Leslie's bday party to follow...and NO KIDS TONIGHT!!!....
see you tomorrow
love and kisses!!!

I never thought about how nice brown was until now. I have never bought anything brown to wear because I think it makes me look dreary, even though it's so in style. I DO get excited when the brown ups guy comes, not because he's good looking, because I love packages!

Ooh, I like brown too! My favorite color combo is brown and pink.

Love the layouts! I'm so jealous that y'all have snow. When we lived in Africa my boys were so sad that there was no snow, and I promised them that between Toby's birthday (December) and Seth's birthday (January) we would get snow...but so far, nada.
