DH and I are on vacation. Major ROADTRIP. I will be posting details here on my blog; but for now, I will say it's been eventful! We were at a Steak n' Shake in Plano, TX (I mapped out all Steak n' Shakes for the trip, lol!) and when we went back to the car it wouldn't start! Fuel line! We got lucky and the place AAA took us to fixed it the same day (yesterday, just before closing). Of course we offered to pay them overtime to get it done otherwise we would have had to wait until Monday, putting us 2 days behind schedule, or leave the car there for the duration of the trip and rent one for the rest of the trip. So in the end this setback put us 4 hours behind schedule. The time we left Plano, TX was the time we should have arrived in Tulsa. We didn't even car IF we got ripped off; just happy to have the car back and on the road again.

We are off to our first adventure today in the Tulsa area. Will post about it here with photos if anyone wants to follow. :-). I have my Gypsy with me so I can scrap to the best of my ability while we are gone. Yes, I will share the files but that sharing may have to wait until we get home since I left the cord for my Gypsy to my laptop at home. 

I better get off the laptop! DH has already accused me of sneaking off to play farmville. Phffffft!

CHA Show blog candy! New Cricut Cart!

I'm  having LOTS of fun here in Chicago - my old stomping grounds - at the CHA show! I've met so many wonderful people and hopefully they will be friends in the future.

How would everyone like a chance to win a NEW cricut cartridge? This one is called Fancy Frames and it is a Project Cartridge. All you have to do is comment under this thread that you want this cartridge, be a follower (I will check) and tell your friends about this blog. OH! Grab my blinkie and post it on your blog or facebook page (I will check).

**** UPDATE: apparently my blinkie is coming up super large for ya'll and with a black background. I attempted to fix it. However, if it is still coming up weird on your blogs, then skip the blinkie and put up a blog or facebook post that talks about the blog candy and directs traffic to my blog. Then post the link below in the comment section so I can follow it. Thanks! ****

The more friends you tell, and who come over here and say "so-and-so sent me" the more entries and chances you get to win this new cartridge! So will your friends if they follow my blog and send their friends, etc. That means if you get 5 of your friends to come over here tell me you sent them you get 5 chances to win. However, if one of your friends gets 10 of their friends to com over here and do the same, your friend will have 10 chances to win!

I have LOTS of blog candy but only one NEW cricut cart to give away. So let's get to it! This contest will run through Monday, July 25 because that's when I'll be back home!

Good luck everyone!
