Over used words

Do you know people that over use a word or phrase? I work with someone who says 'like' in almost every sentence. I think I use to use like alot too but I realized it and broke myslef of it (I hope). But today I was thinking about it and wondering if I use a word or phrase too often and don't realize it.
I know I use the word exactly all the time. I find myself saying Exactly! whenever I agree with something someone has said. I need to be careful I don't start using it too often.
Like like? Exactly! :)

Today my picture is of the lavendar festival we went to a few weekends back. It was a few hour drive but well worth it once we arrived. The smell was heavenly but the bumble bees were everywhere. Since Paul has an allergy to bee stings we were slightly on edge as we were winding our way through the fields.

The Cut and Jelly Bath

Jessica is gone.......
Not surprising really, since she's never added much to the show other than being Miss Minnesota. I was so hoping that Deanna would get the boot last night. Could she be any more sure of herself??? and whats up with Shauna and her two faced little conversation with Elizabeth when they were both home sick?
If you havent watched this show, you should. I love the format and the challenges each week are really cool.
Im not sure who Im rooting for now that James is gone...I like the underdog usually and I think Elizabeth has gotten a bum rap so maybe her.

On another note, Im on a mission to find some Jelly Bath Im not sure how the whole bath thing would feel so Im going to start slow with the foot soak. I love their website though. It makes me smile :)

This week I think...

I think
1. that being at home doing nothing is better than being away from home doing just about anything.
2. that my scraproom is one of my most favorite rooms in the house
3. I love getting e-mails from my friends. they make me a happy girl. :)
4. holding Ethan on Sunday afternoons is one of the best parts of the weekend.
5. August is coming way too quickly, and August means my birthday. Im bracing myself.
6.I'm addicted to blogging and scrapbooking message boards.
7. I need to drink more water and get off my butt and start exercising or my butt is not going to fit in those $80.00 jeans I just bought.
8. packages from Down Memory Lane make me very happy.
9.Im in love with our new car!
10.I want my husband to feel better :-(

Today was my bosses last day at work. She was one of the best bosses I have ever had and Im going to miss her... alot. We went through some tough times together in the past 5 years. Now she's going to go do more great things and Im so happy for her but Im sad she's leaving. She'll be able to work from home 2 days a week and thats very important to her at this time in her life.
After work we all went over to her house and BBQ'd some hot dogs and just hung out. We've decided to make this an annual event so that we don't loose touch. This is the view from her back deck...........pretty amazing view huh? Im not sure how she's going to work at home while watching the ships pass.

Day 2

so here we are on day 2 of the blog ... still wondering what exactly I will be using this for and what the heck Im going to talk about that would interest to set the darn thing up...what things that it's ok to talk about ... and what it isn't :)
I won't be sharing my deepest thoughts, wishes and dreams, but I think this will be a good place for me to share some random ramblings and things that I feel are interesting tidbits of information. So please read on if you would like, otherwise go ahead and skip it. I promise I won't hunt you down and ask you why you don't like me :)
Last night Paul and I did a little more research on the new car we're searching for. We're trying to narrow down the choices so this weekend we can go out and test drive the ones we feel best suit our needs. Im hoping we can walk in, tell the guy which cars we want to drive, ask him what kind of deals/incentives they're offering and what they'll give us for our trade in without too much of a struggle. Then on to the next dealer. Im hoping that this will not be an all day struggle. I hate car dealers. Its such a frustrating experience.
Well, enough about that. I need to figure out how to set up this blog with some more fun stuff like pictures and links and stuff. Otherwise nobodys going to want to visit with me...

Well, lets just give this a try.

So I've recently gotten quite addicted to reading blogs, something I thought was totally absurd a very short time ago. But, not to be left behind in the dust, I'm going to give it a shot.
I'm sure cobwebs will grow around here and I'll be yelling H*E*L*L*O! and listening for the echo. I'm going to give it a try anyway.
This will be a little look into my life and my loved ones. A place for people to catch up with what I'm doing if they would like to. I hope you enjoy, stop by often and feel free to comment at any time :)
