{weekend ending}

Well - the weekend is about over. 

This weekend I:

- kicked off my New Couch Fundraiser
- went to lunch and to see "The Women" with my mom and Aunt (meh - so so movie BTW)
- went to dinner with my parents and brother at the Hot Dog King
- went to my other brother's football game
- went to a baby shower an hour and a half away
- scrapped a little
- got publicly dissed (and then publicly stood up for) on a forum
- went to church
- attempted to help entertain FIFTEEN 1 to 3 year olds for 2 hours
- had yummy spaghetti dinner at my parents
- played domnioes

So, it was a good (and slightly random) weekend. I'm exhausted.

Look at my trip countdown ticker!! It says THREE WEEKS now. Ok I know, three weeks and six days but THREE weeks sound so much closer than 4!! Woo hoooooo! I seriously can't wait.

Here is my blessing LO for today. For those who don't know - each Sunday for 1 year I scrap a blessing. At the end of the year I'll make a "52 Blessings Book". It's been an awesome project. Many of you mention that you want to start at the new year and do this. I say - start now!! I didn't start at the beginning of the year. I think I started in like April! It doesn't matter when your year starts and stops. Start it now if you want to do it!!

As you read above, I've been a little cyber-picked on (as nerdy as that sounds) this weekend. Not at ScrapMatters or anything like that. Just another forum I visit. And having my best friend to hug me and make me feel better has been such a blessing. I'm so lucky God gave me Josh.

Ok - I'm so exhausted! I gotta go to bed. See ya later!!

Oh wait! First, a friendly reminder to check out said "New Couch Fundraiser" in the post below if you haven't supported the cause yet!! Thanks so much to all those who have so far! We're off to an awesome start!!

Ok - g'night!


  1. Ok, so first off....who is cyber picking on you?? I will cyber beat them up! Ok, I'm teasing, but seriously, hahahaha! My momma used to say when people pick on you that just means they are jealous of you in some way :-) and well, there's alot to be jealous of, because YOU SO TOTALLY ROCK! (I'm doing my best Squirt impression here!!) (Did I get a smile?? - I hope so!!)

    I've supported your New Couch Fundraiser, but girl didn't need to sell me with the couch, you had me at "Used & Abused" and "ribbon jar" and "hang in there"! Hey, I'm not easy you know!! :-)

  2. I totally agree with jemenifer.... those cyber bullies were WAY jealous!! Don't let 'em get to you. Have a great week, Britt!

  3. I'm gonna cyber smack them! :) Hang in there, you are awesome!

  4. you know I support ya, Britt! just hang in there {HUGS}

  5. Sorry about the whole cyber-pickng-on thing, Britt. Somehow I missed that when it happened and it was already too later for me to chime in when I noticed the debacle. I know it was rough, but I really think it was mostly a misunderstanding (on their part, not yours). I'm so sorry that your feelings were hurt. It seems like the whole thing has blown over and I hope you still hang out with us over there! Our little group is still the same. We love ya, Britt!!

  6. Hey Britt!

    Your "couch kits" are amazing as usual! Thanks for all you do! I've learned so much from you. Keep up the good work!

    p.s. You and your husband are the CUTEST couple!

  7. So agree with jemenifer. That is really too bad. You are too sweet and so talented, that like jem said, they are most likely jealous. Crazy how you can have a bunch of supporters and the one/few who are neg. seem to get to us. I totally know the feeling.

    I think your couch funraiser is the funniest, most clever thing! Hope it sells fast. You'll have to make a LO when you get your new one. One of you 52 Blessings!

  8. I agree and stand 100% behind you Britt. Why is it only 1 or 2 people can spoils things for many others.

    You have always been such a giving and inspirational person, never change that for anyone. PLEASE? You have been especially inspirational to me! It is solely because of you (on the DISboard)that I started digi-scrapping! You should be proud that you inspire SO MANY!

  9. LOVE this LO. You are the queen, for sure!!
    SERIOUSLY??? Whoever is picking on you is just jealous. DORKS. :)

    Glad that you had a great family weekend!!

  10. Sadly I saw what was happening, too. And like Labdogs it had already gone crazy !! WOW, what a bunch of whiner babies !!! :):) Hope I got you to smile.

  11. I had no idea about what happened and now that I do I am FURIOUS! You have donated your time and your resources and yet somehow you're the bad guy? Seriously? I wish I had known what was happening Sweets, I would have pointed all that and more out. We love you, please don't let a few get to you!

  12. Hey we're going to Disneyland in two weeks! Have a great time there and Happy Anniversary early!

  13. I was saddened and so upset about what happened over the last few days. You did nothing wrong and I couldn't believe how things got out of hand. You know we all love you. You give of your time and talent and are such a great supporter of us all. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your new kits!!! Big hugs!

  14. You have always been kind, tactful, helpful and generous with every "newbie" question I've thrown at you. Keep your chin up. I appreciate you!!!

    I went to message board in question to read it and just can't believe my eyes. You and the gang have been so supportive and inspirational to me. I am so new at scrapping and you offer positive feeback no matter how simple my LOs are; you provide answers no matter how silly my questions are. I am so grateful to you and the "current days"!
    Just know that there are a ton of people who love you.

  16. If I knew this was happening...I'd open up a can of cyber whoop-a**!!! I can't believe what some people have the nerve to say! I agree with the others, they are just jealous of you!!
    I just wanted to let you know, along with everyone else here, what an inspiration you are to so many people out here!!! You are the reason I found ScrapMatters, and have hung around for so long!!
    Hang in there girl...we're all here for you!!

  17. OK, so...I just learned how to leave a comment on a blog! You are teaching me so much and I am already standing in the 'don't mess with my Britt' line. Your gifts are amazing and I am so grateful that you share so willingly. Thanks for blessing my life. I've gotta baby-step it, but digital scrapping can't be far behind! I love you! J

  18. Love this layout! And what a great idea! I do believe I will start this sunday on my own! Thanks for the great idea!
