As promised...

This week I was gonna be good about posting. And then at 12:00 Monday Eric called to say that we'd be leaving for Seattle at 3:00 that afternoon for a last minute business trip. He had to drive all the way up there and he couldn't think of a single person in the world he'd rather have as his co-pilot....HA! Like he'd ever say a crazy thing like that... So I said okay and packed my bags. I'd have to be crazy to turn that down, right? That's what I thought.

So we packed our bags (well, he packed a bag, and I packed six because, well, you just never know, and a girl needs what she needs) and hit the road. I managed to get about five photos the entire time as it was so rainy and gross outside. And would Eric take a picture with his fiance? Well, not a good one. I got one of him flipping me the bird, and this little gem. Cute cute cute....coming in for a sweet little peck on the cheek....and slap! a tongue is in my mouth. Thanks, babe... I hesitated to post this, but I figure, if I have a brute who does crap like this, surely there are more of you out there, right?

It's as though he relishes in my photographic dreams crumbling...

So the trip was boring - the wizard wouldn't let us into the Emerald City because we couldn't park all 50' of our ride, I spent the entire sunshiny day in the hotel room working, and the shuttle to dinner was like being paraded through town in a New York City taxi deathtrap. EEK. But the driving was nice - Oregon and Washington are so green I thought for a little while I might sprout some leaves of my own. And on the way back it snowed! Gorgeous!

And I worked on the beloved/dreaded hex quilt.

And I was shut down once again on the photo op...

He's like the Soup Nazi, that one... No shot for you!!

After being back in Vacavillieoh for about 14 hours, I'm now 15 minutes late leaving for Fresno to participate in the Relay for Life. First time, very excited, and hope my legs don't fall off in a general protest to exercise of any kind.

Not what I had planned for National Scrapbooking Day, but oh well!

So I think as a reward to those of you who actually read to the end of this post, you should definitely be entered to win something.... How about this adorable stamp set by Ippity? I love it - use my set all the time! Just leave me a comment to be entered. I'll post the winner on Monday.
