It was a bit of a let down...but I'll live.

Jeri still doesn't know about the new job. We're kind of getting a little down about it. But I did point out that there wasn't another thing we could have done to help him get that job, so if he didn't get it then it wasn't meant to be his. But who am I kidding? Disappointment always stinks.

The waiting is always the worst part. I hope that he gets word soon!

We still don't have a baby niece. She's hanging in there! At this point I have asked my sister to have the kid on the weekend just to make it easier for everyone. She thinks I was kidding!

It's always disappointing when people won't live their lives by your schedule...what is she thinking? Of course, you weren't kidding.

According to my timeline it's 84 days to 4.0. I can't wait to see you all and swap hugs!

Yay! I feel like I'm doing everything last minute. I just booked my flights, my transfers, and my room at POR for the night before the cruise. I'm so used to having everything booked so far out that a little over 80 days out seems like I'm cutting it close. I still have got to think about excursions...that is if anything good is left. Either way, I'm so excited to see everyone!!
Oh, I love the new pages!! I'm going to be sad when we don't have anymore pages to look forward to.

I've been on a travel blog kick recently. I've been reading several different blogs of people that are traveling around the world and blogging about it. I would love to be one of them right now. I've been daydreaming about selling everything, paying off all my debt, saving some money, and hitting the road.

This was on my suggested reading list through Amazon.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...d_i=1286228011

Havent read it yet...so this is just a blind recommendation....but for $3.99, I'm willing to give it a shot!

It sounds like something we've all considered.

Thanks, Kevin! For 3.99, I agree, can't hurt to give it a shot.

Oddly enough, I've never considered being a "count who served as a model for statues of naked horsemen."

But if ya had, I would SOOOO make a scrapbook page about it!


Got our new ABD catalog yesterday. Whatever they pay those guys in marketing isn't enough. Those photos made me want to go on every single one of those trips! I was looking at the South Africa one and Jeri says, you know those cats are going to be grown up by the time you get there, right. Kill joy!

Just got off the phone with Donna! We are paid up and ready to AquaDuck!

It's not the pace of life than concerns me... it's the sudden stop at the end.

Ok - downloaded and in the reading queue

This one is a bit more pricey - $7.55 - but it is wonderful. After being in Venice its easy to just close your eyes and see exactly what they're talking about. I can't imagine anyone not enjoying it.
It had me laughing out loud ...

And this is the end of the road folks! Our last scrapbook page for you all to look at. Now comes the very tedious part of getting each page ready to be loaded into Shutterfly. You would think I would make all the tweaks I need to do to print while I'm actually scraping, but I don't. 'Cause I'm a big dummy! But I've already caught a couple of mistakes looking at the older layouts with fresh eyes so I suppose it's worth it. It only feels thankless! I'll post a link when the book is loaded up so you can see the finished product!




When's our next adventure!

So I didn't let it go. I've stayed up way too late for three nights running to get this thing done so I could by it while it was on sale! I am so tired!
I'm glad you guys liked looking at all my work. Doing one of these really is a labor of love, and I couldn't have done it without you guys!

And, yeah, I teared up a little when I got it all loaded and saw it scroll through for the first time. Shut up!

Beautiful pages, Lauren. I don't want you to be finished! Isn't there some rule that you have to keep going until the next trip starts?

I'm glad to receive the reading suggestions just in time to blunt scrapbook page withdrawal.

Now I just need someone to FedEx me some of those starfish pastries...

Ditto. I am in violent agreement.

You have also to let us know about Charlotte and Jeri's news too.

I'm going to try and make the Kouign Amann pastry mentioned by a NY Diser. It looks really tasty. If it approaches starfish status, I'll let you know.

I'm having withdrawals already....
