Photo Friday & Friday question

   Hi everyone! We've had blazing heat here the last couple of days (weeks, really) and I'm ready for a cool down! We had a little rain yesterday (pop-up heat storm), so Brandon, Maylee and I went out and played in the rain. I got a few pics of my sexy husband:
Yes, he's a dork. MY dork. He makes me laugh and he DEFINITELY makes Maylee laugh. And he needs a good shave, too (I'm happy to report that he's since shaved).

   I've had a couple of really busy/hard weeks at work. A co-worker took a week off (last week), so I had to do two jobs last week and had to play catch-up this week. I feel like I've done a month worth's of  work in two weeks. I'm GLAD it's the weekend!

  I think to make sure I blog more often, I'm going to do some memes. If you don't know what a meme is, they're basically just questions you answer and hope people answer them with you (at least that's my definition). So my Friday meme is going to be: Friday Question. So without further ado...

Friday Question:
When you were younger, what did you want to be "when you grew up?" What are you actually doing now? Do you still want to be something when you "grow up?"

  This is actually a kinda hard question for me to answer. I knew what I DIDN'T want to be, and that was a teacher. I've always felt that it takes a special kind of person to be a teacher, and I don't have that special something. But I've always loved education and learning and literature, of course. So the natural evolution of things made me turn to libraries. When I was in high school, I thought I wanted to be in either social work or advertising (could I pick two more different fields??!!) I'm so thankful now that I didn't go into either of those. Social work is so sad and advertising is so fake. I find that I'm exactly where I want to be now and I am what I want to be when I grow up...a librarian! Lucky me! Not everyone has a job they love. Hell, most people don't. I don't take it for granted.

   Feel free to copy my question into your blog and comment me a link to your website. Let's have some fun with this!

  I've been putting together this scrap page for a couple of days. Actually, I had one almost done and my PC rebooted to do Windows Updates and I lost it. My fault for not saving it...I know better. So I started over and liked what I came up with the second time even better. 

 The backround and elements are from Penny57 Designs Traisors kit and Cajoline's Rustic Garden kit.

I have so many pictures that I want to scrap and am feeling a little overwhelmed. But I was so excited because this week I won kits from two different designers just for leaving comments on their blogs! I got the Bohemian Chic kit for free from Modern June and bought her Happiness Is... kit for only $1! I won the Diary kit from Mystique Designs. Love, love, love all those kits! And free is great ($1 isn't bad, either)!

   That's all for now. Hope to hear from some of you on my Friday Question. Let's have some fun!


  1. I did not know that you are a librarian. I would say there couldn't be a better job for you based on what I know of you!! I'm super happy for you for that! Great pics of the hubby. And as always a perfect scrapbook page! I will be answering the meme on my blog. What fun!

  2. I wanted to be a crayon maker rofl

  3. Did you want to be a crayon maker because of the Sesame Street piece about the crayon factory? I always thought that was awesome!
