MMM-MMM Good....

It's National Cheesecake Day...so to celebrate, the Sweet Shoppe FOB2Y is all about cheesecake. I'll admit I don't like cheese...but cheesecake isn't really cheese, right? LOL. Cheesecake would be mine and hubby's favorite...in fact, my bridal cake was a DELICIOUS three layer cheesecake.

As far as favorite cheesecakes go, I'd probably have to say just a plain cheesecake, with a sour cream topping. I have an easy recipe for one (scrapped with Sherri Tierney's Cookin Up Some Love)

Now, if we're at The Cheesecake Factory (who has 1/2 price slices today only BTW), then I generally get classic light, turtle, or Snickers cheesecake. Wonder if Rachel would like it LOL...we could stop by for a piece and check out our new Lego store in one trip out today.
OK, enough of fattening, artery-hardening, cholesterol-raising talk...I've got some layouts to share!

The Name Game

Ohhhh, I like this quiz!!! I agree...I hate trendy, cutesy, oddball names.




You Like Names that Are Retro and Fashionable



You like names that are from the past but becoming modern again.

Names with a strong history are very appealing to you.



You're a big believer in giving children very adult sounding names.

You're not a fan of nicknames or newfangled spellings.



Some female names you might like: Audrey, Emma, Fiona, Georgia, Isabelle, Naomi, Rosemary, and Veronica



Some male names you might like: Brendan, Colin, Ethan, Jared, Kenneth, Martin, and Nathaniel

It's too early!

I should still be asleep, but since I'm not, I'm popping in to share my FOB2Y post for the week.




You Should Spend Your Summer at the Beach



You're a free spirit who is always thinking of new ways to have fun.

And you don't just love summer... you live for it.

So, you really should blow off your responsibilities and head to the beach!



***this isn't really me...I love the beach, but I don't swim and I don't tan. A Pacific Northwest beach, with forests and mountains, sure. A tropical beach (ie Caribbean, Mexico, etc) does not appeal in the least.

Hot Hot Hot

What's gone on lately...it's hot. My laptop was lost and then found by the Geeks at our local Best Buy. It's hot. The RAM on the laptop was corrupt, and when I went to reload everything from the EHD back onto the laptop, I found that the EHD was dead. So I've lost alot of stuff, even though I backed it up. And it's hot. Did I mention it was hot?
Hot means 108 degrees, and an air conditioner that broke sometime Saturday night. The repairman didn't get here until about 8pm on Sunday, and it was probably 2 or 3 in the morning until the house was cooled off again. Seriously, I don't know how people manage without air conditioning! We were miserable, but I am so grateful that we are cool again.

And yay, I'm back to scrapping again...although I'm missing all of my photoshop goodies (bummer), and my sweet rewards will probably go to waste this month (another bummer). This is what I just finished...a layout of Rachel's first night in her big girl bed, using Robin, Fee, and Zoe's Twitter kit.

I'm tired...

It's late, and I need to go to bed, but since the FOB2Y is posted, I'm going to go ahead and get it done. So......



You Are a Banana Smoothie




You are friendly and popular without even trying to be. People just like you.

You are easy to be around and never offend everyone. You're quite mild.



You have a warm demeanor, and many people find you to be inviting.

You are sympathetic and kind. You have a soft spot in your heart for everyone.



Can I say EWWW? I love bananas, but not in smoothie form!
