I saw this on Colleens blog and I really loved it so I thought I would share it with you!!!

Why do we only have parties for each other when one of us gets married, pregnant, has a birthday, or retires? What would most of us do without our sisters, confidants, and shopping, lunching, scrapbooking, blogging, and traveling girlfriends? Let's celebrate each other for each other's sake!

Someone will always be prettier, smarter, have a bigger house, drive a better car, their children may do better in school, and their husbands may fix more things around the house.

So let it go, be happy and love yourself and your circumstances. Think about it. The prettiest woman in the world can have hell in her heart. And the most highly favored woman may be unable to have children. The richest woman you know, may have the car, the house, the clothes, but might be lonely or miserable.

So love you, love who you are. Look in the mirror in the morning and smile and say "I am too blessed to be stressed, and to anointed to be disappointed." "Winners make things happen, while Losers allow things to happen."

Be blessed and pass this on to encourage another woman.

Long Time No Post!!!

Wow time flies when your having fun, I have been working like mad and scrapping so much I love it, and helping the boys with school going through my messy house. Getting to know new people, having a great time on the new Magistical Memories Forum and Gallery, checking out all the beautiful work coming in and getting ready to pick 2 NEW design Team Members.

Well in all this craziness Michael made me take a day off, he took me to Disneyland for a WONDERFUL day, we got the boys off to school and headed out, when we first got there we went to the character breakfast, it was awesome, the food was great and the company even better. After Breakfast we rode Space Mountain, I LOVED IT, it has been redone and is one of my favorite rides.

From there we went to It's a Small World, on the way we went by the new Nemo exhibit construction site and I took Michael's picture in front of the School's In sign, we got a kick out of it because the boys were school and we had never been to Disney without kids. We went to Toon Town, had our photo taken with Mickey and rode Roger Rabbit, from there we took the train to New Orleans and went on the NEW PIRATES, very nicely done!!!! We also went on the Haunted Mansion, very beautifully decorated for Halloween.
From there we went to California Adventure and went on Soaring Over California, I love this ride. So we walked the park and a lot of things were shut down, Michael wanted to ride the Tower of Terror and I said I didn't want to ride it I HATE FALLING!! If wasn't going to go I told him he should so we go over there and get in line, I am only planning on going throughout the line with him, until we get to the elevator doors and there is a little and I mean little girl that is standing there excited to go on!!! Ok so how bad can it be I am thinking, I should have RAN, so I get on and let me just say, that was the worst experience that I have ever done, not only do you fall, the machine pulls you down faster than gravity and not only that it does it 4 times, I was so terrified, Michael had finger nail prints in his hands for days!!! The picture of me was classic and I would have bought it if the ladies arm in front of me wasn't blocking half my face, the picture was so great and showed terror on my face like I had NEVER seen before and I think they might have used it for commercials or some thing, ok back to the ride, so we stop and I am crying hysterical and hyper ventilating I can not move, I have NO LEGS!!! So we finally get off, because lets just say I was afraid it might go again, we are looking at our picture and the little kid is laughing she had a great time!!! NOT ME!!!! It took me over and hour to really recover!!!
We went back to Disneyland, I needed a kiddy ride after that, we had dinner at the Blue Bayou inside the Pirates ride, OMG the food was amazing, I had Filet Mignon with bearnaise sauce with potatoes and vegetables, Michael had the Royal Street Seafood Jambalaya, his was good, but he loved mine, and if you know knopw him he doesn't eat meant unless its processed first, the meat was so tender that you just savored it with your eyes closed for every bite. We bought the dice game from Pirates movie.

A game of high seas deception. The dice don't lie, but you might have to in this fast-paced game of trickery and deceit. Do you have what it takes to be a real pirate?

To stay alive in Pirates Dice, you must bluff - or be bluffed. To win in Pirates Dice, you must double cross your way to victory. Never trust a Pirate.

The dice cups featured in Pirates Dice are detailed replicas of the props used in the movie 'Pirates of the Caribbean - Dead Man's Chest', and feature the movie logo engraved on the bottom of each cup. Contents of Pirates Dice:
* 4 custom dice cups
* 20 custom dice with skull and cross bones
* Rules in English and Spanish

From there we went to Snow White, but it broke down, we then went to Thunder Mountain another favorite of mine, from there to Mr Toads Wild ride!!!!! We had a wonderful day, but the topper of the whole day was dancing to no music in the parking lot!!!

Thanks honey for a wonderful day Tower of Terror and all....

A few weeks ago Magistical Memories attended the Simply Southern Convention in Franklin Tennessee. All I can say is wow, what a beautiful State Tennessee is and very hospitable too. Every where you look it green, living on the West coast for the last 7 years, I was amazed by how much green grass there was and I just wanted to get out and roll around in it. We explored the rolling hills and the battle grounds, we saw beautiful farms, and large houses. We were in town over September 11, and the town had set out flags for all the soldiers from Tennessee, killed in Iraq, it just took my breath away as I stood in awe, they also had a flag for each state and under the state flag a list of soldiers from that sate who have passed away. You heart just breaks for these families. Kinda puts things into perspective. Here's a few photo's of our trip.

I was blown away by the hospitality of everyone I came in contact with. When your in the line at the grocery store everyone talked to each other. In the booth at the expo, everyone had a story to share, I am so glad I got to share in your stories.

Oh and the food, don't even get me started on the food, oops to late. I was in fried Heaven like never before. How's this for starters Corky's BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich with Fried Corn on the COB!!! Oh and for starters at this lunch we had fried pickles and onion loaf!! Yup fried!! Some of my other favorites, fried apples, corn bread, asparagus with cheese, chicken and dumplings, fried steak, green beans with almonds and bacon, and my favorite drink, oh YUMMY Raspberry Lemonade, oh and you can't forget sweet tea.

It was a pleasure to meet every single one of you.
