Why, Thank You

Okie dokie, first I wanna say thank you to all the really cool people who've popped by my little blog and had awesome things to say. You guys are so nice! So, this is my thank you card for you all. A nice, simple thanks.

Now, I had been feeling very loved, but very uninspired the last couple of days. I started 2 or 3 different cards and just couldn't make them work. Pooh. But that wouldn't be fun to write about, so I'm just gonna do that 7 random facts thing that everyone else has been doing on their blogs. And it makes for some riveting reading (haha, that's sarcasm), so get comfy.
  1. My favorite color is purple. It doesn't look all that great on me, and it's not on every single card I make, but it just makes me happy.
  2. I've had the same best friend for 20 years. We met in high school & clicked instantly. She's smart, beautiful & strong. I don't get to see her that often, but when I do, it's like no time has passed. Hey Rachel!
  3. I have 3 tattoos & can't wait to get more. I have a panther on my back, a rose anklet and my husband's name on my thigh (ooh, scandalous!). Yes, the name thing is a really stupid thing to do and I forbid all 3 of our daughters to even think about it. But, I was 19 and madly in love. I don't regret it and 15 years later, I'm still madly in love with him. Awwww.
  4. I have Multiple Sclerosis. Now, don't go gettin' all sad & weepy. I'm fine, really. The worst thing about it was finding out. I think I got it confused with another disease & thought I was gonna die. Knowledge really is power. A healthy diet & exercise helps me stay ahead of relapses. If you're interested, you can read about it here.
  5. I have 2 brothers & 2 sisters and I'm the oldest. From my mother is my half-brother, Kaleb, who is 24 (tomorrow!), and I wish he knew how cute he is. On my dad's side, I have a step-brother, Saverio (31) and an adopted sister, Loretta (21) . And, last but not least, a half-sister, Ashley, who is 16, gorgeous and learning to drive. This is my official warning to the people of Las Vegas: Ashley is behind the wheel people. Take cover!
  6. I love to dance. My mother was a dancer, I dance (ok, I used to dance) and Darien was in dance for years. She may go back, we'll see. And, we watch So You Think You Can Dance, religiously. Go Neil!
  7. I love cake. Like, it's not even funny how much I love cake. Not just any cake. A nice, moist, white cake with buttercream icing. Everyone in my house knows the corner piece is mine, (or, maybe all the corner pieces) so don't touch! No, that's not part of the healthy diet. *sigh* So sad. Now you can feel bad for me.

So there you have it. Probably more than you wanted to know, but there it is. Hey Rachel, you wanna go get a tattoo with me?

Stamps: Faux ribbon (Papertrey Ink), Paper: Vintage Violet, Soft Sky, Soft Sky DSP (all SU!), Ink: Vintage Violet, Accessories: silver brads (Making Memories), Tag Punches (SU!), Cricut flowers

Absolutely SCANDALOUS! LOL! Loved reading a little more about you. I haven't had breakfast yet and the description of that cake is making me have some major sugar cravings.
