February just flew by! I'm right on schedule with my roundup though and that makes me feel good and ready for March.
I hope you will take a few minutes and roundup your memories from the month of February. Your scrapbooks will thank you!
Here's my recap of the month that was:
What books and/or magazines did I read this month?
I read several scrapbooking magazines (Creating Keepsakes, Simple Scrapbooks, Scrapbooks Etc). Also this book which I did not like at all, it was depressing and mostly about an incestous relationship so it was just a bit much for me.
What movies and/or tv shows did I watch this month?
A lot of Mythbusters with the family (we love this show!) We saw Night at the Musuem in theaters and we really liked it - very fun movie! It would probably scare really young kids, but it isn't as scary as it looks on the previews.
What special days did I celebrate and how?
We flew to California on Valentine's Day and while we were there on vacation we threw a surprise birthday party for my Sister-in-law with a Pirates of the Caribbean theme (she also loves Captain Jack!) We even had a pinata and party favors (which I packed all the way there - lol!)
and instead of playing pin the pirate flag on the ship, we changed it to "plant a kiss on Captain Jack!"
Here's my daughter kissing him (hmmmm, maybe I shouldn't be teaching her this stuff!)
ok, and while I'm admitting my obsession with the Captain...
I thought it would be a laugh to bring my Captain Jack figure (or "dolly" as my hubby calls him) to Disneyland and I ended up finding this pin. Had to get it!
What gifts did I give and/or receive?
We gave my sister-in-law the same pin for her birthday. Hubby and I didn't exchange Valentine gifts because we ended up spending a lot on bedroom furniture last month so that was a pretty nice gift anyway.
What illnesses or health concerns did I have?
Well I got the flu or something while I was on vacation and ended up missing Seaworld!
What fun things did I do with my friends and/or family?
Vacation in California
What new foods, recipes or restaurants did I try this month?
nothing exciting unfortunately. Although I did get to eat beignets in Downtown Disney, always a favorite!
What were this month's disappointments?
Not so good on the Weight Watchers plan this month - see above :)
What were my accomplishments this month?
Designed 3 new template sets, and created a record breaking 38 digital layouts (many of which I haven't even had time to post online yet!)
Anything else noteworthy to record?
I did get my hair cut really short and I like how easy it is to do now.
see how funny I am that I am pretending to be asleep? lol! And check out my new funky purse, pretty daring for someone who usually just carries a plain black purse!
Now I need to work on backing up my photos and layouts and also uploading them online. I need to also remind my in-laws to do the same so I can have some photos of the Seaworld trip I missed. Be sure to roundup February before March comes at us all full force!
