Oh, July…On day away, July!!
I have a feeling this July is going to rock. So far there is so much to look forward to.
First there’s fireworks tonight in Goderich and tomorrow in Wingham. I’m a sucker for fireworks. I adore them with childish glee. I took Monkey to see fireworks twice last year when he was just a little infant. I was curious if he was going to enjoy them or cry because of the noise. He did neither. He slept right through them! I’m curious to how he’ll be this year.
Second, it’s Bad Girls first anniversary. Don’t know what Bad Girl is? There’s a link on the side of the page. If you’re into scrapbooking, it’s a site for you. Wendy, a lady with an eye for beautiful things, started up a monthly kit last year. It’s doing very well and all the members hope she continues to have fabulous success with it because that means we keep getting wonderful kits, add-ons and monthly projects. Seriously, if you like scrapbooking and you enjoy creating art more than just slapping pictures and stickers onto a page, then check out Bad Girls Kits.
This month there’s a lot of fun going on at the Bad Girls forum. Challenges, a crop day and so on. I’ve never joined in on these types of things before and am planning on it this month. I’ve taken part in the monthly challenges for the past couple of months and have been having fun with that. I even cranked out three layouts for the June Apron Challenge (winner gets a fabulous, blinged out Bad Girls apron to create in). Steve has already agreed to let me enjoy the crop day. He’s going to keep Monkey busy that day so I can play along with the ladies on Bad Girls for an online crop.

Next, Wendy has been ever so great…Some of you know, my birthday is in July. My mother thought that Bad Girl kit add-ons would be a great gift for me. The original plan was I’d get to pick two or three (depending on price) and mom would give me the money for it and that would be it. We took it up a notch. I emailed Wendy asking for her help. Wendy, based on a budget, has happily picked out some add-ons for me. I have no idea what I’m getting. I’ll get to see all the add-ons tonight after the reveal, but won’t know which ones I’m getting. It’s exciting and it’s excruciating at the same time! When the package gets here, I have to hand it right over to my mother so she can wrap everything up and I get it back on my birthday. If the package doesn’t come until after my birthday, then she still gets it first to wrap. My mother love to wrap!
So next on the forth coming month is…My birthday. I’m going to be 27. A year closer to 30, but it doesn’t bother me at all. After all, at Steve’s parents’ I’m 28. Everyone is 28 in their household. I’m not planning anything big this year. Last year, Steve surprised me with lunch at one of my favourite restaurants (Boston Pizza…I really do love it! I‘m so simply sometimes), a movie of my choice (Transformers was awesome!) and then he took me and my best friend to Medieval Times because he knew I had always wanted to go (it was so much fun!). This year, I’m happy to just be with my family. A nice meal and some cake and I’m a happy gal. I’m already getting spoiled by my mom. So this birthday looks good already.
I could very easily go on, but I won’t bore you anymore.
Until next time…
