Welcome to a day in my life. I can't guarantee that this will be an exciting read for anyone. My life is filled with all the mundane activities of a stay-at-home-mom just trying to raise her three sons to be the best men they can be.

So Cathy is off school for two weeks so today we decided that since it was raining, we were going to go scrapbook shopping. I know, I know. I don't need anything else to try to cram into my room, but it was raining. What else are we going to do? So we headed off to one of my favorite places, The Scrapping Bug. It's a great scrapbooking store. I love going there. She always has the best stuff. Kim, the owner, is the sweetest person and always has time to stop and chat. She has three boys the same age as mine so we always catch up with what the boys are doing. Misery likes company I guess. Go here to check out her layout gallery. Kim's gallery. I don't know how she finds time to create such amazing layouts on top of owning and running a successful store, and raising three boys.

Anyway, I was so flattered when Kim said that she checks my blog every so often just to see what I'm up to, so I gotta say hi. Hi Kim! ...and I just found her store's blog so I will be adding it to my links in my sidebar. No hiding now, Kim!

After hitting two different stores here's what I ended up with today. I'm supposed to be on a spending freeze. Ooops!

So, in honour of tomorrow's Thursday Thirteen, here's my list:

Thirteen Things that I bought while scrapbook shopping today

    I've been wondering where you've been today... now I know! 8^O

    Isn't tomorrow Bug Day Barb?... couldn't wait one day?


  2. I got home from work yesterday, turned on the TV, flipped through some channels - and came across a scrapbooking show! I watched it for awhile and wondered if you'd ever seen it. Of course, I have no idea what it's called or who the hosts are, so we'll probably never be sure.

    Our corps held a scrapbooking weekend at camp a few weeks ago. I couldn't go, however, because we were on vacation. I understand those who went had a great time together.

    Well now I know where all of our money is going ( other than my electronic gagets ) :)

    Very nice site dear. I'm impressed, as usual.
