This is for Tonya

My friend Tonya REALLY wanted to see the movie poster i did in my last design class. I based it off of a series of books that I loved. well my favorite part was adding the fire to the girls dress, I think it is pretty on its own so I added it too. This was a really fun project, but I am not entirely happy with how it turned out, It still needs some work. I hope you are not disapointed Tonya....lol

WERE STILL ALIVE!!!

Well after about nine months I finally decided (with a little help from my friends) to update my blog. As a family its been a crazy year, but we are happy. I will put some updated pictures of my girls, so you can see how grown up and beautiful (if I do say so myself) they are. We took these on Christmas eve. they are in the darling matching sweaters that the mystery Santa brought them.
Myah Lynne, 12 years old now
Tammy Ann, 10 years old
Hayley Ray, 4 years now

Yep, I think they are pretty darn cute, and they are such good kids too. I am the luckiest person in the world to get such a great family.

I went back to work at Convergys so I can take advantage of the tuition reimbursement. Even though I wasn't really excited to go back, it turned out to be a good decision for our family. Looking back I am glad that is what we decided to do. I work from midnight to 7 am, and then I go to school. This is great because I don't need to worry about the kids, or bribe my bro to watch them since I am home with them.

I love school, well except the stressful parts. I like learning and I think I have forgotten that I really am a smart person. I have been on the Deans list the entire time I have been in school, and as for graphic design, I absolutely love it. I will post some of the things I have done on my blog soon, and I will try to keep up on it better.

HAPPY #6

I will be the first to admit that cleaning isn't something that usually makes me feel happy (until it is done and then I am happy) but this weekend Andrew was sorting out some of our "stuff" and he found these pictures of us in High School. It was so long ago and I can't believe how young we looked... anyway a trip down memory lane made me happy, and I thought it would be fun to share (who is that skinny girl?)
my 1992 Junior year picture

1991 Homecoming Dance

This is my favorite dance picture, It was one of the girls choice dances we went to.
18 years after this picture was taken he still is my "choice" and just like the picture says we are "worth fighting for!"


We found a lot more pictures of all of our friends, some we are still in touch with and others we aren't. It makes me want to break out in a game of dead chipmunk.
Fun times!!
(but I would never want to live through being a teenager again.....I was a tiny bit emotional, besides I am so happy with my life now)

happy #5

The technology that enables me to keep in touch with my friends and family all over the country makes me happy, I got to have an instant message conversation with my dad, I got to talk with some of my friends on face book, and was reminded of a fun memory with Gina on my blog. It is great fun!!!!

My Family Made My Day

I woke up this morning with a terrible headache so I took my migraine medicine and went right back to sleep. When I woke up 2 hours later feeling better. My family surprised by doing all the house work, so I didn't have to do the regular Saturday catch up and was able to just hang out with them and enjoy my day.
We went to watch the Black and White Days parade, and then went to the carnival. It was a lot of fun, and Hayley just had to "ride the cow," and since her big sisters love her so much (and spoil her rotten) Tammy paid for her ticket and Myah rode the mechanical bull with her.
When we got home we decided to play charades and name that tune (primary song version) and can I tell you we are a riot! I haven't laughed this hard in a long time. Andrew was a roller skating waitress, I was a Charlie Brown on Halloween, Tammy was buried in the sand getting eaten by crabs, Myah was the crazy flexible person from Ripleys believe it or not, and last but not least Hayley was copying everything Myah did with a lot of enthusiasm...
SPENDING TIME WITH MY FAMILY MAKES ME HAPPY!!!

Still so happy

Well today is the day!! I finally went and did it!!!
I went and got almost all signed up for school and I am oh so excited. Andrew and I decided to take a leap of faith and go for it so I am going to go to Stevens Heneger and get my degree in Graphic Design. It is going to mean dreadful student loans but this is a happy post so we will try not to think about those!! If I start working at Convergys again the tuition reimbursement is just too good to pass up! (Yep I'm happy)
