2. First time you drove a car: I was 15, I think. We were at my grandparents camp and since there is barely any traffic on the roads up there my dad let me drive. I almost didn't make the turn! LMAO! What kind of car? Chevy S10 I think.
3. First time you scrapbooked: Summer, 2002! Jana and I discovered page kits at Walmart, I scrapped that night. My mom said my constant cutting of shapes with my scissors annoyed her.
4. First time you went on a date: a date date? I don't know really. I never really went on 'dates' where the guy picks you up, etc. Mostly just went to gatherings or dances! LOL! The first time a guy ever picked me up to go to a movie, I was 17. He was psycho. Nice enough to take me out, psycho enough to almost leave me stranded in January 40kms from my home. Nice.
5. First time you fell in love: I was 14. First long term relationship (1.5 years). He kissed another girl and then dumped me.
6. First time you cooked for someone: No clue. First romantic meal I cooked for someone? Jamie, not sure when it was though.
7. First time you got on a plane: Where did you go? Were you scared? I have never been, I hope to someday though.
8.First time you shaved your legs: I can't remember how old I was. 11 or 12. Must have been uneventful.
9. First time you put on make up: Haha, again I can't remember, but I bet I wasn't too pretty!!
10. First time you moved out of your home: 17, left for University!
I tag Chandra, Nadine & Tracy if she reads this!

I wanted to spoil myself for my birthday and of course that meant buying some scrapbook related.
I was on the QVC website and decided to order this. It is a cool 4 album set. One storage box, four different kit. Each kit is 1,000 piece kit with a different manufacturer in each one. So it's a 4,000 piece album set with different themes. Looks so cool. And the first kit is by the Lovely Heidi Swapp, I so love her stuff!! So I'm filling out the info for a membership in the check out area, etc and my postal code isn't valid.
I tried it in every combo, spaces, caps, lowercase, no spaces, etc. Everything but it still wouldn't work.
So I got to the live chat area and speak to a rep and they tell me that yes they ship to Canada but no, they won't ship to my postal code. What the heck!! And he can't even tell me why!! He tells me to call the 1 800 number and talk to a rep. Hello, aren't you a rep? UGH!!
So there went my birthday gift plans! Poo! That was a wicked kit too.
He kinda said he would get me one, then told me I had a few birthday surprises. But today there was no trip to Dairy Queen.
At supper I bought myself a 5$ piece of chocolate heaven to ease my pain.
Then Jamie's mom kinda let it slip that a cake might be in my near future.
And it was!!
Jana came back with a super yummy ice cream cake!! Talk about sweet! Thanks Jana!!
It tasted just as awesome as I remember and I can't wait to polish off the rest!!
Since I am really feeling old today it felt great to get carded while buying LOTTERY TICKETS today!!
Seriously!! My mom asked me to check her lotto tickets for her so I went to the store and the girl paused and said "You're 19 right?" And I said yea, but she was still just staring and me. So I said, "It's my birthday today and I'm 25!!". She just stared at me dumb founded!! She really did not think I was serious!
Totally made my day, turning 25 and to her I barely look 19! I'll take it!!
I wish I had more planned for today but I do not. I might go out for supper and who knows what else!
Tomorrow will be a bit more celebratory, my parents, Jamie and I are going out for supper. Maybe Rod & Lindsey too, I hope so! The more the merrier! I think I will do some shopping before hand too.
Friday, I think we might have a party! I see now reason why I can't celebrate MYSELF for 3 days, right??
Happy Birthday to ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyways, here is my 'new' hair. Not quite the same as last time. A little bright at the moment but nothing a few washes won't fix.
I like my new layers.
K, out for the day, so tell me how beautiful I am!!
I am so shameless.
T minus two days until my BIRTHDAY.
Get your cards ready!

Pizza Roll Recipe...
It's not a real recipe, no measurements or anything. Add or take away as much as you want!
Here is what went into our filling....
Kraft Pizza Sauce
Chop up all your meat & veggies. Add your cheese and your sauce.
NOTE: you don't need tons of sauce. Your mixture should be thick. Too much sauce will leak out during cooking.
I used Egg Roll Wraps to wrap my filling into. We used both sizes, large and small. Add your mixture to the middle of your roll (A large spoonful for the large wraps & 1 small spoonfill to the smaller ones).
'Paint' the sides of your wrap with a cornstarch/water mixture. This helps seal your wraps.
Deep fry for 5-7 minutes.
A birthday gift from Jamie.
I have been feeling the need to make this apartment feel more like home. We know we will still be here over a year from now so why not try and make it ours right?
We're gonna go look at paint samples today and maybe we'll come home with some paint!! I saw this paint sample called 'cuban cigar', oh it's so pretty. I think it might be just a bit too dark though for our room, so hopefully we'll get something lighter.
If I paint I'm gonna get some new bedding with my birthday money.
Then later I think I will tackle the scrapbook room!
Today will be a fun day!

Jamie, bless his heart, did most of the work. He chopped up all of the veggies & meat for the filling. I cooked the bacon & the hamburger. Jamie also filled & rolled all of the rolls & I cooked them.
Please ignore my hair in my pic--I think I'm going to get it cut & dyed tomorrow! It's looks so horrible right now!! ICK!!

I made wedding invites for Jamie's niece (who got married in July) and someone at their wedding wants me to make their invitations.
I am going to meet with them in February to discuss prices & design.
I have no idea what to charge, but I'll figure it out!
I don't want to be too expensive and them end up changing their mind or something.
Still cool though!
Maybe that'll get me motivated to design my own invites!
At the very least I am going to have 10+ new pages right? I was able to complete two more pages on the weekend and I'm plugging away at my 3rd right now. So that will be four out of 10 pages for sure. I also have a few other pages completed that might make the cut. We will see.
Wish me luck!

In a way I want too, then I don't. Am I good enough? Do I deserve it?
But in a sick way I've been rejected from mostly everything else that I tried out for, so what is one more??
Maybe this will be my last thing and for the rest of the year I'll just scrap for me. And stop trying out for stuff.
I don't know.
I already started, so I guess I should finish.

And a new planner. I was too cheap to buy myself a calendar this year so I whipped one up last night.
And I scheduled in the big wedding countdown. 8 months to go people!!!!!!!!!
In other news I'm still battling this cold/flu thing that I have had since last Thursday.
My Christmas tree is still up and my laundry is mounting. I was supposed to take care of that yesterday but I felt like crap and surprise! I feel like crap again today.
This thing is relentless!
