The word from CHA

Good morning and I FINALLY got to talk to Nikki last night. We have been playing phone tag and the wait has been killing me! We this is the response I got "We rocked CHA" can't get much better than that. Nikki said the response was amazing! I can't wait for them to get back so I can get all the details but I wanted to pass the word.

Special thanks to Charity and Susan. Nikki couldn't say enough nice things about the two of you and it made things so much easier for her that she could trust people right away. Susan thanks for helping set up the booth again! In Nikki's words, your a trooper!

I will post pictures as some as I can steal some from Nikki.

Great day at CHA!

Well I missed Nikki on the phone but she left me a message to say that if waswonderful day! They had a steady stream of people all day and people really seemed to love the products. I want to say a special thanks to Vicki, Susan and Charity for helping out this week. I HATE that I'm not there and Nikki and Dan both remind me that I should be....hehehe
Here are a few pictures from Nikki's blog of the booth. It looks so amazing, Nikki did the greatest job putting that all together.

Well Nikki and Dan are hard at it. I hate that I'm not there to help and see all the other booths. Here are a few pictures Nikki posted of them putting up the booth.

Lorio the Oreo

I got to spend some time last night with my BFF Lori. She abandoned me and moved to Kansas City a long time ago and so I don't get to see her as much as I'd like. I can't believe how big her kids are getting.... they are the cutest and I want to squeeze the every time I see them!

Last minute

Well Nikki and Dan leave on Thursday for Florida! CHA here we come. Now it is just all the little last minute things to wrap up. I just know things will go great so no more tears from a certain someone.... you know who you are.

On another note I just finished rewatching the second season of Psych. I swear they wrote this show specifically for me. The 80's references are perfect and Sean and Gus have the best comedic timing. Love, Love, Love this show.

I watched Push on netflixs and I really wanted to love this movie but the plot was all over the place. Dakota Fanning is growing up nicely and seems to have made a nice transition into older actress. I hope she keeps working cause she talented. The abilities were cool but we didn't get to see them used much and there was A LOT of down time.
Rating: **1/2 (I'm a sucker for super hero power stuff)

Very exciting stuff

Well some of you know that I have been doing the graphic design for a new scrapbook company started by my good friend Nikki Sivils. I just wanted to post some pictures of our products in the store Scrapbook Generation located here in town. I can't tell you how giddy Nikki and I were when we went in to see the stuff actually in a store and selling! This has been an amazing opportunity for me and I just wanted to shout out to Nikki and Dan for allowing to take this ride wit them. It has been great so far and I know CHA will be a great success.

Check out our website to see all our super awesome products!

Well I guess I had to start sometime...

Well I have finally given in and started a blog. Now I know what your thinking... it's about time! I can't imagine how I got along without your constant words of wisdom before. Ok, that might be pushing it a bit but anyway....

I feel slightly lost now that I'm pretty much done with design stuff for Nikki. She and Dan are working their tails off getting ready for the CHA show and I'm soooo excited. I actually went home last night and DIDN'T turn on my laptop. I watched 3, yes 3 movies last night. Sooo for you reading pleasure here are my reviews.

New in Town:
Cute, sweet, and Harry is a lot of man. Renee is funny and charming but the eyes and the pursed lips make me nuts. Watch this for the side characters - Blanche steals the show.
Rating - * 1/2 (rent)

Indiana Jones and the crystal something or other: (wouldn't 4 just have been easier?)
Well the beginning makes me want to turn away. They dubbed in Harrison's voice for some reason and it feels like a joke. There are a few moments that made me all giddy but for the most part I felt like I was watching something a film student put together. The jeep fight is awful... how fake! but the temple was cool and I like Mutt. Indy's fight scenes were actually pretty believable which for his age was a feather in his cap. I won't ruin the end but I looked around and thought "Where's Aston cause I have to be getting Punk'd" It's that dumb.
Rating - ** (mainly cause I'm a sucker for Indy but got back and watch 1 and 3 instead)


Wow, what to say... Well my husband loved it and if you know him that is saying a lot! Simple story, not a lot of twists that don't make sense. Dad goes and gets girl. Done. Oh and he kills pretty much everybody on the way. Awesome, finally someone who isn't conflicted about hurting bad people....paging Jason Bourne....
Rating - **** (watch and be ready for the ride)

So that's it for today....
