its the 5th and i have a HUGE update to do already!! :D

my 1st was soooo much fun. my friends lisa and marta and i got together for a FULL DAY of scrapbooking. it was a blast!! its been so long since i did a group crop like that. its nice to be around people who understand the craft and can encourage and inspire. :)

i did 7 brand new layouts! just fun ones...ones i have been wanting to create. and now i get to share 'em with you too!

but now i've run into a new dilemma... i'm out of room in my albums! gonna need to do some shopping. :D

so that was thursday!

then on friday i had a full day of work, and let me tell you, things were crazy!! for those of you that don't know, i work at a small payday loans/check cashing shop. and we were so swamped. we ran out of money...literally! and the bank only had 20s. seriously crazy day! and then, in the evening when i went to do the deposit, i slipped out front of the shop, which was literally a solid sheet of ice (apperently the building owner does not allow ice melt! retard!). i pretty much did the splits and then landed hard on my left knee. for any normal person this is probably no biggie...plan for a bruise, whatever. but for me its a bit different! back in 2004 i was in a pretty horrible car accident and fractured my pelvis in 3 places. and i think i've hurt it again with my fall. :( i'm really worried about it. so i've got a doctor's appointment for tomorrow afternoon. hopefully everything will be okay!!

then it was saturday!! january 3rd. our friends derek and nina were married in bend, oregon. (remember them?? chris and i were there when he proposed back in july!) it was a long trip for us. 6 hours! but so worth it. it was important for me to be there for my friend. i've known him since i was 9! chris and i had such an awesome little road trip. a couple new cd's, lots of sunshine, dry roads, and our cute little car.

and it was such a nice wedding!
the happy couple derek & nina
we did a little shopping in bend before the wedding and got chris a purple shirt to wear (cuz i wanted to match, and he is so good to me!)
then it was sunday! we got a hotel in bend for the weekend, which was cool. actually our first time staying in a hotel since our honeymoon! LOL. so we slept in, ate breakfast together, and just relaxed a bit. then we packed up and headed to the verizon store. the weirdest thing has been happening since i got my new phone. i've been getting strange, random calls at all hours of the night from a number that doesn't even look right. it has two extra digets. so i went to verizon store to see if they knew what it was, or what to do. (cuz seriously it was getting ANNOYING!! middle of the night, at least every other day, and no one on the other end when i answer). customer service decided it was probably an international number, and the only thing to do to resolve the issue was to change my number.
oh well. at least the calls have stopped!
so for those of you that would like my new number plese just e-mail me at and i'll send you the updated number.

then we headed back to washington. decided to go through kennewick to stop and visit with nate and abi. :D had dinner with them and then went to see seven pounds.! crazy good movie.

then we headed home and it seriously turned into a BLIZZARD!!! snow coming down like i've never seen, people driving like retards.... yikes. but chris got us home safe and sound.

all in all, its been a WONDERFUL 2009 so far. :D i can't wait to see what else is to come....
