Is it cold or what peeps? For those of you NOT LIVING IN SUNNY FLORIDA...can you please return our heat BACK!!! LOL.

Here is another tree for your Christmas eye candy....
Gotta leave you with some scrappy eye candy. This is one of the pages I did in my 10 page December Class. So glad I do this. I tend to catch up on Christmas fairly quickly with these classes. I help my customers scrap and I get my stuff done too. Can't beat that!!!

I HAVE GOT TO SHARE!!!! My daughter lovesss.....did I say LOVE with capital letters: BUDDY from Cake BOSS. She wrote this amazing letter to him and waiting anxiously for a reply. She would ask me every day...MOM...did I get anything? She actually drove me a little crazy. I really did not expect her to get anything back. Anyway we got something back today.
"HIS" company or workers or SOMEONE...sent her a plain autographed card and a 5x7 postcard telling her to buy his book. She was a bit devastated. I felt so bad for her. She tells me I am so disappointed mom. I tried to explain to her that stars tend to get super busy...more so than us regular people and we are SUPER busy. That he probably never even read the letter. Most famous people have someone who reads their letters and answers them back for the person. I really tried to make it a positive moment for her.
(Now my true opinion is: I wish they had NEVER SENT HER ANYTHING....especially the flyer promoting his book. I have no problem with the flyer...just sending it to a KID who has just poured her heart out in a freaking letter!) Please note this is MOMMY speaking!!!! LOL
It is a lesson learned. I explained that in the future if she was ever in a position where children were writing to remember this experience and do something differently.
BY THE WAY...I was planning on buying her the stupid book for Christmas, just waiting for it to get here at Barnes and Nobles...sad but true.
Have a great day girls.

Wow...what a weekend!

Thanksgiving was amazing. We had the most fantabulous time with family.

We began the day with breakfast at mom's.
Then went to the park where we celebrate our annual tradition with my aunt Celina.
She truly outdid herself. We had amazing food, hysterical games....

and spend some amazing time with family and friends.
This place had enough space for ALL OF US!!! :)

NOW...let's talk about BLACK FRIDAY!!!

YIKES!!! Did I mention that I have been going shopping on Black Friday since the 1800's? LOL
It was wild. I can honestly say that the dynamics for Black Friday have changed for sure. I have always been able to come home, sleep 6 hours and off I go by 3am. NOT THIS YEAR!!! I wanted to score some very BIG items and we left the house (at my husbands insistence) by 8:45pm. I waited in line at Target with a very good friend ALL NIGHT LONG!!! It was worth every single second. I was able to score the BIG item due to our buddy Edward. (THANK YOU EDWARD!!! I LOVE YOU TO PIECES BROTHER!!!)
I am gearing up for the holiday crazies. I LOVE THIS SEASON!!! I Have begun to decorate but am no where near where I would like to be. I will continue to post pics as the days go by.
Hoping you all have a great day!

It's almost here..

Busy with a ton of goodness here. Getting some shopping out of the waym abd getting ready for that major scrapbook yard sale coming up. BUT...I am most excited about getting ready to participate in my Aunt Celina's Thanksgiving FEAST!!!! (I am just showing up!!!) LOL

(that's Titi we call her, on the left in red)...Margie and Bethsy (my sis's). This was last year's Thanksgiving, and let me tell you something...this woman makes it better and better every year. She takes a week off to prepare this amazing feast for us. It is a labour of love!!! I promise to share pics of Thanksgiving this year!!! :)

Leaving you with another layout. Believe it or not there was a ton of 3-D going on in this page, but I could not bring it to justice with ANY of the pictures I took. I sometimes challenge myself NOT TO USE FLOWERS and just enjoy the it is.

Hoping your preparations for the Holidays are coming along well.

Christmas has hit the RIOS home...

So I began with a massive cleaning this weekend...I promise...I cleaned for 8 straight hours!!! Fans, walls, moving know the works. I then began to decorate for Christmas THINKING that I would put up the tree...LOL...but I was ssooooooooo tired after cleaning, cooking and having guest over for dinner.

This is last years set up...I might keep it the same...or not...I will post tomorrow. :)
Have a fantastic day!!!

I AM GETTING READY HERE for the largest Scrapbook Yard Sale I have ever had.
I am seriously just wanting to get this stuff OUT OF HERE!!!!! I keep pulling stuff from EVERYWHERE!!!! I decided to keep dumping on the desk and as I go I stop every several hours bag a bunch of kits to sell and continue to make a mess. I HATE THIS!!! :(
But it has got to be done. So a lot of organizing and bagging going on here.
Believe it or not, I have already organized 4 large boxes and kitted at least 50 bags to sell. I have got to finish this room by tomorrow!!! I can not stand the mess!!!! I am getting this scraproom/business room in order !!!!

Send a prayer for me.
