To Scrap or Not to Scrap: That is the Question.

I love pretty things. I know most girls love pretty things, but I love to have pretty things just because they are pretty. If the object is completely useless but pretty, I still want it. I have a closet full of pretty shoes that I never wear. I have a guest bedroom full of pretty yarn that I never use to crochet. And now, I have a kitchen table full of pretty paper that I have every intention of using...for now. I know myself well enough to know that this may not last, but I can't help myself! I have to try it. I have fought the urge to buy pretty paper for several weeks, but this week Hobby Lobby has all their packs of scrapbook paper, stickers, and punches on sale 1/2 price. It was the straw that broke my back - or wallet, whatever! Look out scrapbooking, here I come!!!!

Pool for my fingers

When I was at my Mom's house yesterday, my neice Lizzy was eating Doritos. When you eat Doritos, the flavoring builds on your fingertips. Lizzy decidedly didn't like that so she stuck her hand in my Mom's dishwater. My mom pulled her hand out of the dishwater and told her that she couldn't do that and cleaned her hand. Lizzy responded with, "But it's a pool for my fingers." That kid cracks me up!

Uniquely Kayla

The first post has been the one to stop me from blogging for many months. I never can think of what to say for the first time. I have ideas for other posts, but not the first. It feels so important, but really isn't. So here are some basic facts about me:

- My name is Kayla and I am a 25 year old married lady.
- I was named after a soap opera character in the early '80s.
- Thus far in my life, I have not met or heard of an older Kayla than me. Please don't prove me wrong. Let me relish in this small delusion for as long as possible. ;)
- I have been married to my wonderful man for almost 6 years now!
- I work for a large corporation that sent me to India about 2.5 years ago. It was one of the most unforgettable things that has ever happened to me. I'm sure I will share more of that experience throughout this blogging adventure.
- I go through stages in my interests, so this blog may be sporadic. There you have been warned! =)
