Any Excuse To Get Together

I think I have blogging anxiety!  I've been having some fun times away from the computer, and haven't blogged about it.  It caused me some anxiety because I wasn't "caught up".  Plus I didn't want to have one long blog post where the subjects are totally different.  Then I realized... DUH, there isn't a rule that says you have to fit it all into one huge long blog post, just post multiple posts in one day.  Phew!  :p

On Thursday night after work, we headed up to AJ and Meera's house. Why? Well, this time our excuse to get together was the annual NFL Draft. They moved the first round of the NFL Draft to prime time. We had a tradition with AJ and Meera to get together for a "Draft Party" and eat pizza. And watch and see who our favorite teams the San Diego Chargers and the Cleveland Browns pick from college. This draft party/pizza tradition dates back to like 2003 or something crazy like that! So we picked up a couple of pizzas from Rossi's in San Marcos on the way to their house.

The pizzas were quite tasty. We were hungry, so we dug right in!

AJ's birthday was also a couple of days before that, so I made a birthday card for him.

You should definitely take note of little Andon's face here, because it shows up in almost every photo!

Todd made homemade banana oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, for AJ's birthday. The rest of us got to enjoy them too.

Some of us, ahem, got to enjoy them way too much. I ate five cookies on Thursday. :|

We had a fun time with AJ and Meera, but then again we always do.

Here is a close-up photo of the card I made AJ. I used my Silhouette digital cutter.

I also made a card for my nephew's birthday.

I glued the pieces on after the Silhouette cut them. Then I used Stickles glitter glue to draw the smoke from the train and to write over the letter. I used Bazzill Basics kraft paper for both of them. I bought some on sale and I've decided now that I want to make all my cards on kraft paper because I really like the way they look as a background. :)


  1. I love kraft color on cards, too! These are super cute! The pizza looks AMAZING!

  2. Oh my goodness, that little boy has the cutest smile.

  3. Thanx for the pizza. And thanx for keeping the tradition alive. We love you.

  4. I love have friends with whom you can find any excuse to get together. Those are the very special ones! and their little boy is too cute!!!


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear from you!
