Happy Spring Happy Anniversary

Yay!! Spring has finally arrived and left already. At least we had one glorious week of it! Back to rainy and cold today. Anyhow I got some scrappy stuff done over spring break. I made a Spring page for the current challenge over at Noel Mignon. I say current because often, I don't finish them in time for submission. No excuses this time. The only requirement was to use Spring in the title. Easy Peasy, thanks Noel.

Another page was for a Sketch Challenge over at the Scraproom. Susie always has awesome sketches and will be hosting a 10 week sketch class starting in May.

Inspired Blueprints has also been coming up with some kick ass sketches! I did this one using some of my Noel Mignon kit.
My weekend was just awesome. Saturday was a perfect day for a bike ride. Now mind you, I haven't ridden a bike in, ok not going to say how many years but let's just say a VERY long time and oh, I don't own a bike either. There is no deterring an 8 year old though. She traded her bike in for roller blades and wasn't taking no for an answer. Now granted I'm breaking the law hear because I rode without a helmet but lemmeee tell you!? I had a blast!! I got in touch with my inner 8 year old and now am on a mission to get myself a sweet ride. I'm sure my neighbors had a blast watching a 200 pound woman careening through the neighborhood. WoooooHoooo Big Momma rides again! Oh check out my kid on adult roller blades. I swear, I wish I had half of her natural athletic ability!!

This weekend was also our anniversary. 12 whole years and can you believe it. I still like the man. Now I don't mean I just love him, I still like him. He is a genuinely good guy. Ok enough mush and on to the anniversary gongs. Yeah, I said gongs. We went to our favorite restaurant, Yobo. Had a great meal. Got ready to leave and waited an unusual amount of time for the check. Next thing I know there are about 8 men with gongs and instruments storming our table. I look at my husband and started to say what the f and I realize he's as freaked out as me. Yeah, they came to our table. Sang something in Japanese and banged gongs. You know only a couple of people were looking at us right? Then just when I thought it was over? They took out a camera and started snapping pictures. Mother of god I wanted to crawl under the table. Remember now, I use to be a size 10 and wellll since the thyroid got ripped out.. let's just say I'm NOT a size 10 and I don't do things to bring attention to myself. Men banging gongs and snapping pictures. snort I'm thinking I'm going to kill someone. What happened next though was so touching I couldn't even be mad. We were presented with our check and instead of a check it was a card from my SIL saying Happy Anniversary dinner was on her! How freakin sweet was that, we even got a little keepsake. So cheers to another 12 years!
