2012 was another great year! So great that I have neglected this blog TERRIBLY! Here is my annual review post and perhaps I'll make a resolution to post here more often. Facebook, instagram and twitter kepp me pretty occupied so don't hold your breath!  ;o)
Text on the layouts reads:
This year was packed full of fun! I met THE Chester Cheetah at the MLK March in January (SA has the largest one in the country). In February, I participated in a Flash Mob at HEB were we danced the Cupid Shuffle and tried to break a world record. In March, Jay Tope with Radio San Antonio did a live broadcast from the March of Dimes and I got to talk to his audience – it was such an amazing experience. April brought my 4th March for Babies and FIESTA! Had lunch with one of my best friends in May and went to a family party in June with my new friend, Catherine. In July I traveled to Ft Lauderdale for our annual summer staff meeting and had the honor of speaking to over 600 March of Dimes employees; it was a humbling experience. After that, I flew to South Padre to enjoy the wedding of my friends, Griselda and Auggie. The very next weekend, Ashley’s bridesmaids threw her a baby shower. We all enjoyed our mini-reunion!
August brought another trip to Florida with good friends. We visited Miami and the Keys, went shopping, swimming, snorkeling, exploring and had 4 days of FUN! I also got to celebrate birthday number 98 with my Grandmama. In September, we got our new pink coaches shirt for USA Fit (my marathon training group) and I enjoyed a night out with my friend, PK and her family. In October, I rescued a cute little fur ball named Charlie and she has been such a delight. I also had fun at several Halloween parties with good friends. In November I ran my 3rd half marathon in honor of 97 friends and family members who have battled cancer. I also got to spend a(nother) evening at the Moontower Saloon with several good friends from high school. I had a great time at the Chamber’s annual gala in December where it was announced that I will Chair the ambassador committee next year. My sister and her boys came for Christmas and we had many adventures including a trip to SeaWorld, an evening on the Riverwalk, movies and a trip to Toys R Us. I enjoyed several nights out with good friends and rang in the New Year in Kyle.

It has been FAR too long since my last post. Life seems to have taken over and I don't have a lot of time for scrapbooking! But, I've been keeping up with my photography - here are a few pics of my nieces & nephews from our trip to Corpus Christi. You can always see what I am up to by friending me on facebook!

2009 Year In Review

This is my 3rd Year in Review layout. In 2009, we celebrated 3 years begin married & 10 years together!

Here's the text in case it's too small to read:
The kiddos from Lockhart came for a visit to the zoo in January. In February SD & I volunteered with Ashley, & friends to make tacos at the Rodeo Fajita Corral. In March we volunteered for the 2nd year in a row to take & process photos at the MS Walk. I started working for March of Dimes in February and by May we had recruited American Idol finalist, Haley Scarnato to sing at our walk! I learned to drive a scissor lift to hang banners from the scaffolding & there was a downpour on walk day so we were soaked to the bone after cleaning up the park. In June we took a road trip to Omaha, NE for SD’s graduation from Bellevue Univ. His mom, dad, brother, SIL, nephew & nieces and my sister and nephews met us there! We were all so proud of him. After the ceremony, we took the kids to the Omaha Zoo for some fun. In July, we drove to Austin for my multi-class HS reunion (14 years for me.) Later that month we took a weekend trip to Rockport and enjoyed the ocean for a couple of days. In September, I flew to Minnesota so Lynn and I could go to Scrapfest. Then in December, SD and I took our first trip to NYC! We did all the touristy things we could fit into 5 days!

I used a kit called Floralessence by Bon Scrapatit.
