hooooly cow!!

It has been soooo long since I have posted anything! I'm gonna just post a quick note for today because I'm not on my computer and I can't do any pics or anything like that.

So I am back home in AZ with my parents, and Sean is still in MD....and that sucks, but we'll survive.

James is getting HUGE! At 2 he's 3ft and 34lbs, in the 90th percentile! Like I said HUGE! But he is as cute as ever and becoming such a big boy, which I don't like! No really its actually nice. Plus he's starting to form sentences and thats the cutest thing ever!

I'm here and alive and well alive. Sophie is coming in 4 days and I can't wait. This has been a pretty difficult pregnancy with all the sickness, but it has been well worth it! I'm totally excited to have this little one, but its totally bittersweet. I'm sad and find myself crying often because James will no longer be my baby. It's rough but I'm sure the transition will be fine! So I'll update again asap so that I can show you some pics!

sick sick sick

I am stinking tired of being sick!! It is slowing down though, so hopefully I am getting over this garbage! I swear the things we put up with so that we can have children! LOL!! It has been a busy few weeks, with all the sickness! Seriously though, the car broke down this weekend and that sucked. But fortunatley sean knows a guy in our ward that is handy with cars and was able to help him take the car apart and fix it. Plus it only cost us 60 bucks, plus a gift card for the guy that helped! But waaaay better than the 300 that the auto shop wanted! Well we are getting ready to leave, just wanted to say hello to anyone who is reading! I go to the doc in 2 weeks and then I will let ya know if this is a boy or a girl!!

So you know how....

You promise yourself that you are going to keep up on your blogging? Umm yeah so that hasn't been me, obviously! I suck at it-really I do. But I promise to try harder!

Not much going on here, sick sick sick....oh yeah and being sick more! But it actually seems to be slowing down, so that is a good sign. I will find out in about a month whether I am having a boy or a girl, so that is VERY exciting. I will be taking bets in the near future! (LOL!!)

MD is turning out to be an ok state. The town we are in sucks, but the surrounding ones are alright. We went today and picked fresh berries from a farm, and that was great! Not something I ever remember doing, and I love the smell of strawberries!! I haven't ever made jam but I am going to try this recipe that a girl from church gave to me. I'll keep ya posted on how it turns out! Plus there are beaches here, and that in itself is worth being here! I love being able to go sit in the sun, and let James have tons of fun out there!

James is getting bigger and bigger! I can't stop him from growing, but really wish I could! Here are a few pics for your viewing pleasure!

be back soon....PROMISE!

yesterday at the park

Alright so I slacked a little, give me a bit of a break! I have been so stinking tired and so friggin sick. Things just make me wanna puke! I totally know it is all in my head, but it's just too hard to smell some things!! We went to the park yesterday and I got some great shots of James. A woman there asked me if I was a prof. LOL! I had to laugh, cuz I said nope just an addicted scrapper! LOL!! I would sooo love to be a prof photographer though!! That would be a great job, esp since I would have to buy a really nice slr! So without further ado, look at my cuteness and imagine what a girl would look like!! Oh if I have a girl it is gonna be hell! Esp. those teenage years! and if she is this stinking cute, Lord help me!!

Ok so I am super oober excited! We found out this weekend we are having another baby!! wohoo!! I can' tell you how happy I am!! Stupid Navy clinic told me that my urine test came back negative, which is why i went to the ER. I was having alot of abdominal pain, and well if it wasn't pregnancy we needed to figure out what it was! So we were there forever, they gave me the antibiotics for the infection, and also told me that I was pregnant! They did a blood test and not urine, so they are 100% sure!! I am so very very happy!! I don't care if it is a boy or a girl, I love babies, and could have 100's if my body could take it, but I know it won't! LOL! Thats what happens when you grow up with 7 bros and sisters, and are a total mother hen! I swear they all hated me when I was younger cuz I was always SOOOO bossy!

Scrappin is going good really! I have been working on stuff for a bunch of swaps...recipe cards, bday cards, rolodex cards, and an altered item swap. It is so much fun making stuff for other people!

So it's 11pm and I gotta get to bed. Cleaning both of my houses tomorrow, so I will be gone all day long! :( But thats ok cuz makin money is fun!! plus I love to clean other peoples houses!!

Thanks for stopping by and reading! Don't forget to check addicted for the april kit, she is gonna sell out quickly this month, so make sure you grab it while you can!!

Sunday, March 25, 2007


I hate hospitals....with a burning passion!! Last night we were at the ER forever! I swear we were there for almost 7 hours and it was awful! Fortunatley all is well. I was put on some antibiotics for an infection, but I am peachy!!

So have you been thinking about that brain teaser?? Hmm ya have? Ok good, then be the first to post and tell me whats happening (i know you have to take a total longshot!) and you will get some rak from me!

Ok and before I go I must share a picture with you of a LO i did today. this is probably the best LO I have done to date! I used almost everything from the April kit from added a few alphas and chipboard. Here it is, love it!! ;)

great and amazing......hmm maybe not!

oh man sometimes I crack myself up! LOL!! But anyways...can't believe I posted on sat and I am just now getting to the blog. ugh. oh well what can ya do. say shame shame and move along.

Scrappy world first- I have kinda been in a bit of a funk. Not sure why but I have been. However things are looking up and I am feeling inspired! Via the boards at all my wonderful sites. The newest site I have found is Scrapbooking Supplies The site is great and the people there are 100% awesome! Of course you know that addicted is one of my all time faves! but there is also they hold awesome monthly contests, and there are some oober talented peeps there. So wahooo for all of you who have inspired me to get my butt in gear!

Don't forget this weekend at we are having an online crop. I know that there will be awesome prizes and great fun games! So come on over and check it out!!

OMgosh! I have to say too, that addicteds April kit is gonna knock your socks right off. (hint...BG phoebe is the pp) Go over around the 1st and check it out and also apply for the guest dt spot! Kathy Bishop is the March GDT'er and she is rockin it! Very very awesome work chicky!! Oh and I must say that that April kit is only so wonderful because Sus and Audge love me and made the kit just for me for my bday!!! LMBO! I wish!

Oh and one last scrappy thing, the lo's that are getting pub'd in the april/may issue of ready set create are below. This is my first pub and I am oober excited!! Thanks for looking!

And now the rest of my world:

James started potty training. Yes I know holy crap! He is only 20 months, and I am super oober excited!! Everyone says wait till they are 3 etc etc. But I didn't have to. He is the one who wanted to get up on the potty and go! The last few days have been rough, because he is either sick or getting some more teeth. He still is missing a few yet, so that may be what it is, not too sure! LOL!! That was the beginning of the month, and along with that he started sleeping in his toddler bed. It too was going really well for the first few weeks but now the last few nights he has been very very aprehensive and not wanting to get into his bed! Oh the joys of being a mother!!

My diet has gotten severly off track and for that I am paying the price. Hopefully I can get back down before my parents get here so they can see some sort of progress!! Not sure why I care, I know they will love me anyway, but still....kwim?

Sean has been having a tough time at work. I blame it on them continually changing his schedule, but whatever. It is the military what can you do?! The first week of April he is on call for "flyaway" missions, so that may be interesting. But he does have the 18th-24th off, so that will be nice!

Well I think for the most part thats it! I'm excited for the month to be almost over, and for the 17th and 19th of April to get here! (bday is 17th, parents here the 19th!)

Happy scrappin!!

Happy Valentines Day!!

Oh the dread of this day!! LOL! Nah this is a fun day. It always brings out the love in people (well most of us!) I love the pink and the red. It is all very exciting. Plus it gives me a great reason to make white chocolate cheesecake. It will be a little diff. this year with the whole WW thing, but I am adjusting it so it will end up being only 3 points a slice compared to the 10 it normally is! WOW that is alot of fat!!

Ok so I was brave and I entered a contest. I don't want to say which one because I am afraid of rejection and if I don't make it I don't want everyone sayin sorry!! LOL!! I know I am crazy like that!

You have gotta gotta go over and check out Addicted, go over and get registered...go now...I will wait................................................................Oh ok good you are back. Did you see what is going on? Thats right our first ever online crop, let me tell ya that I am stinking excited!! I am so happy that we have such awesome sponsors for this! We have lots of great challenges and projects too. I can't leak any info as of yet, but as soon as I can you know that I will!!

Oh yeah and one last thing. I am hosting a Pampered Chef show on the 27th. If there is anything you want, you can order on my website, or just drop me an email. I am not allowed to link my site directly but it is basically after the slash enter jennyphillips. I would love it if you ordered too, this is double sales points month and I want alot!! The points are used for a free trip that we can earn. I was thinking I wanted London, but now I am second guessing and thinking I may want to take the cruise, don't know for sure yet, but we'll see!!

Alright, gotta get some sleep now. Have a wonderful and amorous Vday. :))

I swear I am

I am trying hard to keep up with my blog. It is just hard for me to find the time in the day!! KWIM?? Today has been actually pretty good. Well the last week actually!! Oh geez I am totally over using the exclamation point! LOL!

So the last week....I have only managed to get 1, yes 1, LO done. Which totally sucks! But I have been busy. James is sick AGAIN. I have been doing all my actual business work for Pampered Chef. I have been trying to keep my house clean and in order. No dishes in the sink. So far it has worked out well. DH is a little slow to accept the plan, but too bad. Drinking tons of water, and working out like crazy. Didn't lose this week, but the lady said it was because I have been working out so much (6...count them mon-sat) I can't belive that I am working out 6 days a week! This is great for me!

Addicted scrappers is having an online crop, starting the 23rd. You should go and check it out if you have not already planned on being there. Tons of great prize packs to give away!! Cosmo Cricket, Cherry Arte, and Dreamstreet! So go over and check it out. link over there ------->

Well I think thats about it! I am going to go scrap and get some work done with my free time!

Tuesday, January 30, 2007

ok working on it I swear!

I really am. I go around and read everyone else's blogs and then I forget to post on mine! Today I had a pretty blah day. I did get the house cleaned, dishes and all!! So that is good. I even put makeup on and went to the grocery store! LOL!! It was weird to get out of the house! (for those of you who don't know, we only have one car right now, so while DH is always at work...I get stuck with no car :( so yeah it stinks!!)

Weight life is going good. I am continuing to lose, and so that is exciting. I don't weigh in until tomorrow, but I am sure I will have a loss!!

Scrap life is bueno too!! I ventured into the digital scrap world. I had alot of fun doing my pages. but nothing comes close to my real stuff!! I am totally lovin addicted scrappers Feb kit! I have done tons of projects with it, and am working on a few pages right now too!! I am super excited about the paint you get! So go check it out!! Plus be watching for an online crop...not sure if I am suppossed to tell, but we will be doin one soon, and lots of nummy prizes to give away!! WOOHOO!! I love giving out free stuff!!

four days...not too bad

ok so 4 days between a post, not too bad for me. I am working on it though!! I have actually been pretty busy. I have been scrappin my brains out. Cleaning this house that seems to never stay clean, and feeding the child that never stops eating. I swear James eats so often, not alot, just often. He eats like every 3 hours. I have tried not letting him, but he gets waaaay to cranky. Besides I read that you are suppossed to eat something every 3 hours, so 6 small meals a day right? Seems ok to me!! Ok so I am doing the whole Weight Watchers thing right. I started Jan 4th. I weigh in every wed. This week, not so good as past weeks, but I still lost 3 pounds. WOOHOO! So for a total of 14 pounds since the beginning of Jan. I am telling you working out makes a huge difference. The first week I did nothing and lost 5 pounds (mind you I cut out all junk, sweets and crap for the whole week) The second week I worked out twice and lost 6 pounds. This week I only worked out 2 times again but I ate some not so great stuff, and blew my weekly points allowance in one night :( But I still lost. So if you are trying to change your weight (I don't call it the D word, because I have to trick my brain into thinking that I am not on a D) EXERCISE! it will be the single best thing you can do!!

Ok so scrapping stuff. If you have not clicked my link for Ruth do so. I was sitting this am reading her blog, and I was laughing so hard! She is hilarious, plus OOBER talented!

February's kit at Addicted is going to be totally amazing! It will be featuring: Crate paper, Creative Imaginations Making Memories, Heidi Swapp, Prima, May Arts, Bazzill. Here are a few pics of what will be in it! I really hope you enjoy it. If you like the kit and decide to buy one, or if you decide to join the MB tell them that I sent ya! Here are a few of the embellies included!

Ok so these are so yummy! This whole kit is delish and I can't wait to share more with you!! So go on over and check out the message board, and the gallery, and everything that is in the store!!

easy peasy

Today was such a simple day. Slept for 3 hours. Went to church. came home, and made us lunch. Then I tried to accomplish cleaning, but no such luck. James was at his best today. I almost died!! But guess what? We actually got snow!!! I am so oober excited. Unfortunatley as I type it is raining so by tomorrow am it will be melted. Thank goodness I got some pics today! I will have to post them up tomorrow. I am way to sleepy right now to upload them! I did get an intsy tiny bit of scrapping done (got a title figured out and have it printed now) I have been working on this page for 3 days now. ugh. Thank goodness Sean is off tomorrow, so I can have some realy scrappin time. Thanks for the comments Ellen and Kathy! I love that someone is really readin!!! LOL! Have a great scrap day tomorrow everyone!


is that a comment?

wow!! someone is actually reading my blog!! LOL! Thanks to Kathy! Totally lifted my spirits!! So not much scrapping today. Sean is at work and so I have the baby and the dog, way hard to accomplish anything with both of them. I know waaa waaa waaa. Want some cheese with your wine Jenn? Nah I am good, thanks though!! Anyways, so I did get some sketching done today. I also got my pics all organized on the computer. It feels so good to have that done!! Now it is one click to the photos I want.

Oh yeah in telling you all about myself I forgot to mention 2 things. The little linkys over on the right for addicted and scrapbook stand.....I am an Addict Counselor over at Addicted. At TSS I am a Design team member!! SOOO exciting! I was totally thrilled when I found out I had made one, let alone 2 weeks later find out I made another!! WOOO!! That made me very happy. So go on over check out the sites. Addicted has a huge store and an awesome discount, and her kits are 100% perfect and sooo worth the tiny amount you pay. TSS has awesome kits too. So seriously go over and check them out. Oh yeah great MB's on both too. Just tell them that I sent ya ok??!!! Have a nice sunday everyone.

So I begin again......

Ok I am swearing now that this will be the absolute last time I start my blog!! Hopefully I will have people come and read!! LOL! Here's to hoping!

Ok brief intro. I am Jennifer, but call me Jenn or Jenny. I am 22 (23 in April) I am married to Sean, have been for 3 years. I have one son, James, who is 18 months old. I love being a momma!! It is the greatest thing in the world. I love to cook, which is why I sell Pampered Chef. I love to read, being outdoors, dogs, animals in general really, love to be artistic. So how do I be artistic you ask?? Well of course, I scrap! Most of you will probably have come to my blog from a scrapping site. So yeah I love to scrap!! It takes up a majority of my free time. Laundry? Dishes? who needs to do that in their free time? Nah, they can sit, I will scrap for now!! LOL!

Ok so in a nutshell that is me! Now you know and you better not ever forget (heeeheeeheee)

I look forward to writing and having you all read about my lovely crazy simple life.

till later
