Thanks Oprah!


OMG....did you happen to see Oprah today? My teenage idol, Rick Springfield, was on today!!! I had major teenage flashbacks watching the show. Ok....this is a big clue here.....next to Michael Buble is Rick Springfield and you knoooooow what a Buble stalker freak I am...and I mean that in a sane normal stalker kind of way.

Rick Springfield was the second concert I had ever attended and I almost wasn't allowed to go. I was so busted and grounded for sneaking out of my house to be with the neighbor boy that I was forbidden to see. I was more upset at the thought of missing the concert than getting busted and grounded for 3 months. But my mom had a glimmer of kindness in her and let me go to the concert.

Jen had a wall of "Rick" in her room. It was the coolest thing ever. Hey....it was her first attempt at scrapbooking on a life size page! LOL Ah....those were the days of...um....I can't say innocence cause that I was not! Those were the days of my fist obsession....LOL...now I am a grown woman with a new obsession. {Big Buble Sighs}.

**Stampin Stuff** I made this card Friday night at Ivy's Stampin Up Party. It was so fun to get creative and hang out with some pretty crafty and creative girls. Oh and I got to get some therapy out of it too. Hey...what are friends for? Ivy has already emailed me and asked about my decision. I'll fill you all in soon and then I and tell everyone. It's exciting.

**American Idol** Tonight is the boys night. I am going to be at a First Communion meeting so I'll have to DVR it. Don't they know Tuesday and Wednesday nights are not good for me? Geeesh.

**Gratitude** I am so thankful for Rick Springfield and my teenage years. Such fun, great memories and good times. Even more grateful that Jen was right there with me.

Cute card! I have you to thank for tuning me into Micheal Buble. I had read your blog and got a CD. My teenage children have stolen the 2 CD's I have and listen while falling asleep to him! You have corrupted us all! lol Thanks for being such an inabler.
