CRAP! I forgot...

...the show n' tell! first of all, can we just sit back for a second and absorb the fact that i'm bloggin' two days in a row? in the words of the wise and immortal kanye west: you can't tell me NUthin'!!!! but, i digress! i went to the mailbox monday and got this out:
and what to my wondering eyes did appear when i turned to page 74?
that's right, baby!!!! the cutie patootie in the upper left hand corner is my keanohn! that's right...that's right...my noonie willis is all up in there! i'm so excited because this is my first time being published in a paper mag! being published is like tattoos...very addictive!!! i want to contact lowe's free mag and submit my home improvement project. or, i want to submit my bikini clad bod next to a racing car to the racing mags (can you wear a body shaper with a bikini??) i NEED TO BE PUBLISHED again!!!! so, what do you think i should do with the fifty copies that i bought? i was thinking a nice dress for christmas...
so, i've been thinking a lot about a discussion we had at work. i haven't been married as long as a lot of the people i work with. plus, i'm on husband #ONLY-no crap! if he bumps his head and decides he doesn't want to do right, i'm stocking up on batteries...i'm not for the foolishness! but, back to this discussion. my name is legally keandra perkins-willis. the "perkins" is because my two sons i had before i met my husband are perkins-that's my link to them. also, when i kreate, it's a tribute to my father who passed away because he was kreative as HELL!!!! but, i AM keandra WILLIS. i'm feelin' what the Lord said about leavin' and cleavin'. my thing is, i wish to be referred to as willis and i want my wishes respected. well, i work with some of the hatin'-est (if that's not a real word, it SHOULD be!!!) people EVA! they told me that marriage is not about love anymore. according to them, the only reason that i'm so into my husband is because we're relatively new to one another...after 10 years or so we'll start taking one another for granted! WOW!!! i understand what the statistics say: 60% of all marriages end in divorce. but, i feel that 90% of those should have never been together in the FIRST place. come on! how many relationships have you had which ended and you said to yourself: i never should have even given THAT fool my PHONE NUMBER!!! when he first LOOKED at me, i should have run away screaming!!! plus, if you don't WORK AT keepin' it good...how is it supposed to STAY good? if you stop giving each other little surprises (like that stripper pole i had installed in the bedroom...no, i'm joking...or AM I ?!?!?) how can you keep it fresh? tell me what you think: how long have you been married? do you believe in true love? do you think that all marriages lose the ooh la la or is it just that you have to work at keepin' it real?
i'm sittin' here typing like i didn't just do a 9 hour shift! i'll be back soon. no kreating today for me. i have to step away from my kraft studio and klean up before i'm divorced!

...if you don't have 20 minutes to devote to reading this post, you should ESCAPE NOW!!! i promised to give you all an update on how my birthday was celebrated and i shall keep my word! i've been trying to figure out which room in the house ATE the wire that i need to upload my pix into the computer to no avail. so, you'll just have to wait for the scrap pages to SEE how my celebration went. for now, just VISUALIZE as you read!
hubbs took me and the littlest boys to the beau rivage resort and casino in biloxi, mississippi (how many of you can write mississippi without silently saying it to yourself?) on monday, the 17th. we don't gamble but we DO love to relax and EAT!!!! the casino buffets have the BEST FOOD!!! plus, they sent you coupons to stay free if you feed the one armed bandit a little. but, i digress. we didn't have any plans for our time in biloxi except to relax and enjoy ourselves so it was really laid back. we took the boys to the movies to see "soul man". pretty funny but i wish i had known that EVERY OTHER WORD was a curse word...we definitely wouldn't have taken ahmad to see that! it kinda made me sad, too, because bernie mac and isaac hayes both died after making the movie (in the same week...did you know that?) and to me, both of them LOOKED sick! hubbs also took me to hobby lobby and let me run around uninterrupted for about 45 minutes (how great is HE?!?!). otherwise, we just ate, hung out in the arcade, ate, shopped and ate for the four days that we were there. on my actual birthday, which was friday, my hubby gave me the greatest card and 10 bottles from bath and body works. plus, he cooked some of my favorites: fried shrimp and oysters, crab cakes and fries. don't worry! it wasn't ALL artery cloggin' food...we DID have green salads! my parents came over and we had ice cream and cake after eating. the next day, hubbs took me out to dinner and to Barnes & Noble where he let me run around for about half an hour uninterrupted. he MADE ME do him somethin' dirty...i couldn't help it! he treated me SO WELL that he deserved a treat, too! :)
the entire family ended up with the ebola virus. no, wasn't that bad but it felt like it. so, i ended up missing a few days of work. when i was supposed to return thanxgiving night, kea's tempurature (which had been 101 for two days), spiked to 103. so, we ended up in children's hospital that night. the doctor said he just picked up whatever we had. when i DID return to work on sunday, my friends there gave me a party...of course i was not fit to work afterwards! my partner on the machine at work gave me an oil of olay gift pack...is that a gift or a HINT? just wondering.
do you know what's so cool? when you ask a fellow krafter where she got some scrap supply you can't live without from and she responses to you. i was reading sasha farina's blog and emailed her about some of the letter stamps that she used. not only did i get an answer...she's mailing some to me...how hard does SHE rawk?!?!?
well, i have to sleep before dealing with the post office tonight. if you're still here, check out the layouts i created. these are some of the ones i started last week and just got a chance to finish. i set a goal to complete 450 layouts before january 1st and so far i've done 314...think i'm gonna make it?
This first lo is a picture of kea when he first started sitting on his own. i covered the actual picture with patterned paper and utee.
This girl has been my friend since we were 12. We started talking again last month-this pic is actually from election day.
This sweetie is ADAEZE, my friend abena's daughter. while we were visiting with her, her mom and brothers, she drew this great horse for me and i HAD to scrap it!
and of course you know the kid! this is kea during that breast cancer walk we did a while back!
I really need to cook dinner and sleep now! Hopefully I get to blog again tomorrow...I really have some questions about your thoughts on marriage. Kreate beauty tonight!
