Transfer to Washington. Transfer to Jefferson. No one at Westerberg is going to let you play their reindeer games

Sarah's kiddie birthday party just ended and we're all basically decompressing on the couch watching Shrek :P Here's some randomness that's I've been meaning to post but never got to.

We visited Portrait Bug a couple weeks ago because IT"S OPEN!!! The store looks fabulous. Totally boutique-like. Love. Everything is organized by color, which basically makes me want to live in the store. A rainbow of scrap goodness surrounds you at all times. It's heaven....imagine a rainbow of Thickers surrounding the most gorgeous chandelier ever. If you've ever wanted to come to NY, here's just another reason to visit!

Sarah also took some photos with Santa in the portrait studio that day. She's been deathly afraid of Santa all her life, but this year, she was actaully able to hang out with him, so the photos came out much better than in past years. She almost as a full smile.....but you can kinda see the fear in her eyes. "OH NO! The man who brings me toys is here...EEEEEK" :P

If you're in the NYC area and need some awesome photographs, check out Portrait Bug. I'm headed back for a new headshot that doesn't include me looking in the bathroom mirror and subsequently cropping out the camera in CS2....
And here's a simple layout I did a while back for PB but totally forgot to post. It based on the flicker bar I keep seeing on people's blogs lately. If I had a flickr account, I would have to have the same one. But since I don't and wouldn't use it if I did (I'm amazed I remember to blog) I did a layout inspired by it.

Time to clean up this disaster area....happy happy joy joy...maybe one more cupcake before i start? ;)

I just saw the pics of you and Sarah with Santa on the ABC News all the way over here in Washington State. It was funny because I was just on your blog earlier this evening, then the news came on and there you were! :) My DH thought I was crazy when I said I knew you, if it wouldn't have been for you being my Secret Santa a few years ago on 2Ps and you sending me your corner stamps I would not have recognized you. :)
