So Thankful.....

Well, the day started off good on Friday, had lunch with a good friend, Bill and I got a NEW washer and dryer....which we had been thinking about doing anyways, but then my dryer went out on Thursday...so it was pretty much fate that we get NEW ones......we decided to go ahead and get the big Front loaders and figured in the long run, this would save us some $$ on our water & Electricity Bills!! So we went to Lowe's and got the Electrolux largest capacity Washer and Dryer.....which was my idea, anything to help with the laundry, because I get so behind with it all. This is the set we got.....
ISLAND WHITE {I would have loved another color, but not spending the extra $500 for another color, but we did get the Pedestals}
EIED55HIW
$1,299.00 MSRP

IQ-Touch™ ControlsThe IQ-Touch™ control panel offers all the cycles/options you need - including a 'My Favorite' setting.

Optional Pedestal Drawer
I can't wait to get these, they are going to be delivered on Monday...Woohoo :)

Then on my way home from Lowe's, I was rear-ended.....I think she was going about 30-35 and I was about stopped and she ran straight into the back of my car....she was in a really low older Mazda sports car and basically went up under my trailblazer....really not much damage to my car, that we can see, but alot to her car though....her front lights were smashed, front hood, etc.

I'm just thankful that I didn't have any kids with me....luckily Danielle had stayed after school for a Valentine's Dance, so I didn't have her or the other boy that I normally pick up everyday and Kaleb rides home with a neighbor....so thankful for that!!!
I had alittle neck pain and a headache last night, but today seem to feel better, except for the headache, so I will probably go get checked out on Monday, to be just safe. So that is basically my drama for the week.....lol.

On other NEWS.....Survivor has started again, woohoo.....which means the "Survivor Challenges" over at Tallyscrapper are BACK ON, these are probably my favorite challenges that we do....so excited!!!! Come check them out!!!!

Also, a few layouts that I have done recently.....
**We have a contest running over at Treasured Scrapbooking, "We Love Our Members"......this was my layout for Week One, I'm just playing along, but not entering b/c I'm on the DT....

The title is "Life is like a Box of Chocolates"....


I also did the Challenge over at "Category Stories" this month......


And lastly....of my sweet Kaleb when he broke his "Other" arm just a few weeks ago. This layout is using the FabUlous January Kit from Tallyscrapper.

Have a great weekend and until later...............
