What a Day... and/or DAYS !!

First off, I am so excited to have been nominated for a blogger award. I think I've seen blog awards... from a distance...I've certainly never had one of my own ! How fun !! My scrapbooking friend, Alecia from the MB at Scrap Attack Scrapbooking has nominated me for a Arte y Pico award. This award celebrates creativity, design, interesting materials and contributions to the blogging community, no matter the language. Thank you Alecia !! I am nominating Desi (Juicy Creations), Lia (Omg! Lia?), Kristin (Goldstar Designs), Xue (Xue Originals) who already has an award but her creativity is amazing and worth another !, and Ellen (Down the Street Creations)... all truly amazing artists and so unique in their own ways.

Second, in my busy life-of-late (LOL) my daughter is running for student council at her school. Anyone who has had a child run for school office understands the posters, flyers, promos, speeches, handouts, etc. that must be done. She had to make a video for campaigning and since her slogan is "make our school a more colorful place" she decided to do one of those upside down faces, very colorfully of course, and lip-sync to the gummy bear song. She looked so goofy and cute.

And lastly, the same daughter won first place in self-defense at her karate tournament today. Proud mommy moment ! Which, by the way, was held at the same high school that David Archuleta of American Idol fame attends... my daughter thought that was sooooo awesome, of course what 13 year old wouldn't. :) We also took a minute to walk on the foot bridge that crosses a very busy street and where I snapped the photo pictured last. When I was a kid I adored walking on foot bridges... especially ones that crossed the freeway. I felt so free and on top of the world up above the cars like that. Hooray for childhood memories !!

Enjoy the last of your weekend !
