Dave and I just returned from a week in Aruba! We haven’t been there since our honeymoon 25 years ago (almost 26) and it was fantastic!! I seriously took the entire week off and didn’t even check email … that like never happens!
We went deep sea fishing and here’s a picture from the back of the boat. I shared a video on my Facebook page of all the Dolphins swimming along the boat … it was magical!!
The next picture was taken at the Flying Fishbone in Aruba … The service was fantastic, the food was awesome and the location …. right on the beach during a sunset with our feet in the sand was amazing!!!
That section you see in the picture is a bit farther from the beach … our table was about 10 feet from the water and some tables were actually in the water (I’m not sure my feet could have handled being in the water for two plus hours).
The last picture I’m sharing is just me having some fun at the Aruba airport ….
When I arrived home, my garage was full of Stampin’ Up! Catalogs to ship out. Lesli and I have been working on them all week … I hope to have all of them shipped out by next Tuesday!!
I’ve started a new adventure (I do this every few years) and instead of starting a new website, I’d like to post the info here. BUT, two things….
- I LOVE my job with Stampin’ Up! and my Chic n Scratch blog and that is NOT CHANGING.
- My new adventure is something fun and lots of people love it!
Truth be told I’ve been looking for affordable gifts to send friends and family that wasn’t candy or chocolate. Now that I’ve lost the weight I wanted to lose (plus I’d like to lose 15 more pounds)…. I don’t want to be tempted by all the candy. So, instead making boxes and bags for candy I’ll be making boxes and bags for Perfectly Posh product. This is important… I will be posting product and promotions here on my personal site … but those of you that are here to see quilting, I do not expect you to buy anything, I promise!
Our summer is going to be crazy busy and I want to lose 15 more pounds!! That requires exercise daily along with cooking all three meals, every day. I like how I feel now that I’ve lost weight and it keeps me motivated to stay healthy!! I will try to make a few test quilts over the summer, but no promises! I’ve promised my hubby that I will go swimming in that lake that I’ve avoided for like 10 years, I know! It’s crazy we have a lake house and I stay inside most of the time. But, that’s because I love inside hobbies … LOL
I need to stop now and head back out to the garage to work on shipping more Stampin’ Up! Catalogs.
I hope you’re all doing well!!
p.s. Miss Bella, Skittles and Elvis are doing well!! We introduced Elvis and Skittles on Saturday for the first time and we were shocked that Elvis was the aggressive one.
