she's up to something....

sort of. then again, not really.
but here's what i've been up to the last couple of days...


on thursday, i had a free lunch (meal, appetizer, drinks, dessert) at the cheesecake factory! they're opening a new one near us, and my buddy amy works there...and invited us to this training session where it's basically a trial run to make sure everything goes smoothly. so they fed everyone for free while the workers got a sense of what they were supposed to do. there was WAY too much food but i LOVE the cheesecake factory so it was awesome! and the kahlua coffee cheesecake was divine. i then shopped, grabbed some boba with another group of friends, and then played mah jong. it was a hilarious game. oh, and i also held the D50 and it was sexy. and it fit in my hands PERFECTLY. yeah, definitely going to buy that thing! and i'm TOTALLY excited!


i baked cookies this weekend! as a holiday treat, the creative team at DD did a virtual cookie exchange...and i needed a recipe AND i needed to make it so i could take a picture of it. you can find the recipe here and the rest of the team's scrumptions recipes over here (i don't know about you but that gallery makes me hungry. and i'm DYING to try out a couple of those recipes!)

in an effort to clean out some junk in my room, i needed to get rid of a bunch of my magazines. so, being inspired by the likes of adrienne, elsie, and kelly (among others), i worked on an inspiration journal. just a bunch of random things that caught my eye and inspired me in one way or another, combined with paper scraps and random scrappy things that were sitting on my desk. just ripped and cut randomly, and pasted. it was fun. and since i've got a TON of mags left to go through, there is more to do! (and even when i fill it up, i'll just start another hehe)

here are a couple of page-




i used a spiral book i bought from the target $1 spot a LONG time ago and had no use for until now :)

i can't believe there's a week until christmas!!
