We Keep Chips in the Closet

Now that Jerry and I don't have any kids living at home we have gotten into some really bad habits. And for our punishment tomorrow we have to go to the doctors after only six months going by, to have our cholesterol checked. Are you kidding me??? We eat REALLY healthy. Today I had organic oatmeal for breakfast and yogurt with a banana and walnuts for lunch and then a clementine for a snack. And when I came home from work I ate dinner which consisted of a small serving of sweet and sour keilbasa, broccolli and rice. BUT, then it was cocktail hour and I had a couple of vodka and grapefruit juices with some chips....CHIPS AND VODKA....that is what is going to kill me. I love a couple of drinks to help me relax and I love chips. I love chips so much that I don't even bother to ever bring the bag back downstairs to the kitchen. I keep them in the closet right by the couch so I can get at them with minimal effort. At one time I considered putting Krista's old dorm fridge upstairs in the den, but I think the big trip down the stairs to get the refills in the kitchen cuts down on the number of drinks we have. But the chips...they can stay upstairs in the closet with my slippers. I know that's really weird. But it is convenient.
So I did a couple of LO's and this one was for the template challenge at MLAS. I love Kate Design's templates because they give me some focus in my LO's. This one doesn't even have any extra elements or paper. I love the pictures so much that I thought that was all it needed.

This LO is of a photo shoot Jerry did of Cadence in her princess costume. He says she's a natural in front of the camera but she has such an attitude that sometimes it's a little scary. I used Bubblescrap Design's Classic Bouquet for this LO.

Here's a freebie for you from the great designers at MLAS. You can download it HERE.

  1. Just between you and me, I keep Girl Scout cookies in the cupboard next to my bed. Also not so good for the cholesterol! Thanks for the MLAS freebie, I haven't been there in a while. I'll have to visit again soon.
