Apple Cider At Dunkin Donuts?

OMG I can't believe it's been a month since my last post. Wow how time flies. I got a slap of reality yesterday when I drove through Dunkin Donuts for my morning cup of Joe. They are now serving Hot Apple Cider! Yes, I splurged and got a medium and was it good. The summer of 2010 is gone I guess. Here in New England there is a distinct feel of Fall in the air. Soon the fireplaces and woodstoves will be in use. Apple picking and leaf peeping will pre-occupy the weekends, and before you know it.....The snow will fly. I like to think of this house as a winter loving house, so we won't mind so much. We all ski, skate, snowboard, you name it. I think of it as a sport as well to watch people try and drive in the fluffy white stuff. It's quite entertaining if I don't say so. Well have I got a few scrapbook pages to get caught up on. Let's see, Arizona, Camping, Fishing trips, the new NH family camp. NYC, The new twins, baby showers x2.....Face it, i'll be old and grey before I get caught up! I'd like to share a recent card with you that I sent out for my August mingle, for Magnolia-licious group. I think she's one of my favorites to date. This card could be used for several occasions or as an invitation.

Recipe: CopicsB12,24,41, BG45, E00,000,11, 13, 25, 31, 50, R20, 100. The Paper is Tim Holtz, tags are Martha Stewart, Swirl bling from Jolee's, Liquid pearls in petal pink. Flowers from Prima, Colored cardstock from stampin up. Scrap of adhesive paper ribbon.

I also found this video by Jennifer MaGuire very informative and seasonal so I thought I'd share it with you all. I haven't posted lately as I found a new personal direction with the Ultimate fit-camp program in my area. It is somewhat similar to Cross-fit training. I'm trying to get my healthier body back one squat at a time :) They are a great group and have helped me strive toward some new and not so new fitness goals. I'll keep my fingers crossed and the ipod charged. At least i'm back to the good ol' run/walk regularly. That's better than last year. We spend so much time taking care of everyone else that I think women forget about themselves sometimes. Well, i'm glad I found me again. I'm not very good when i'm lost. Have a great weekend. I'm going to work on images for my swap that i'm hosting over at Splitcoast Stampers. The New/Open first fall-winter holiday image swap. There are soooo many cute images that have already come in and i'm looking forward to more. Carpe Diem!
