Guess Who's Back?

Yep, it is I...

Back from holidays, which in general should mean rested...

Well guess again...

  • I was first pick in playmate to both kids! Whichever game they played in or around the pool, I was always included!
  • As for the stay in a 5 star hotel in Turkey, I can advise it to all of you... No worries which restaurant to go to this night or that, as the one included in the arrangement was a very good one; especially the french fries and the pizza!
  • Every night entertainment: wheter we liked it or not, as our room was right above the central square where the live music was (every third day the same guy with a keyboard "singing" the same songs...).
  • 50 degrees celcius (122 F) on an average day.
  • Ear infections from the pool... Deprived us both of a lot of sleep. The infection got so worse that one of the kids was hospitalized for a day (just to make sure that we could fly back home on the planned date).
  • Shop after shop fitting jeans in this heat...
  • Why are all pools filled with screaming people (Yes, that's right not just kids)
  • Shopping for that one particular thing (still unnamed till this date) that she needs to bring home 'cuz they don't sell that over here... Like we don't have articles that say "MADE IN TURKYE"

But on the bright side there were no scrapbookshops and best of all:

They got to see ME! In Holiday mode...


BTW: wanna see some pics already? Check here! or maybe here!

I Am a Pundit Blogger!

My blog is smart, insightful, and always a quality read.
Truly appreciated by many, surpassed by only a few
(I did not made this up myself!!!)

As you can see, I am off to a well deserved holiday! All this scrapping is making me very tired... And I do not even do the scrapping myself! Just the thought of 2 weeks NO SCRAPPING makes me happy... (wonder what she thinks???) Maybe expanding to Turkye??? Multinational???

And the kids? Well, one of them is having his own blog... "Me & My Camera" about the way he sees life through his camera (and boy does he see a lot...), guess he'll be taking lotta pictures! Check it out HERE!!! The other one will probably just have a blast from start to finish...
See y'all in 2 weeks... If you got any good gossip... POST IT!!!


TIP: If you camera breaks down...


Oh and to keep y'all busy! Try this barcode...
Want one for you??? HERE!!!

Success comes in all shapes and colors...

I stumbeled upon this one and immediately it made me think of the way Elsie Flanagan looks on EVERY picture??? Is it her trademark or does she just look that way all the time... Think I'll have to ask her "hubby".

Luckely she's a babe... can you otherwise image these pictures???

Showing off @ 2 peas

Every time one of them made a layout that is "so different" from the rest, they upload them to 2 peas in a pod to show off (or as they would say: hope for positive comments)...


And? Are you still wondering what others might think of her work?

Have a sunny weekend, 'cause you know: they ain't scrapping outside as the wind would take off with their creations... THAT"S WHAT I CALL SCRAPLIFTING!!!


BTW: It helps to complain about the weather... Friday the 13th is starting grey, but turns for the better with lots of sunshine this weekend!!!

simple life...

Have you ever wondered why me and her are that much different? Below is a picture to clarify the list about me... I didn't even start on on the list for her!!!

MAN: Simple creatures - simple rules.

My last name stays.
The garage is all mine. (After she cleaned it)...
Wedding plans take care of themselves.
Chocolate is just another snack.
I can be Prime Minister.
I can never get pregnant.
I can wear a white T-shirt to a water park.
I can wear NO shirt to a water park.
Car mechanics tell me the truth.
I know stuff about cars.
I don't have to stop and think of which way to turn a nut on a bolt.
I never have to drive to another gas station restroom because this one is just "too icky".
Same work, more pay.
Wrinkles add character.
Gray hairs make me look distinguished.
Wedding dress costs €5000; Tuxido rental only €100.
People never stare at my chest when I'm talking to them.
The occasional well-rendered belch is practically expected.
New shoes don't cut, blister, or mangle my feet.
One mood all the time.
Phone conversations are over within 30 seconds.
A five-day vacation requires only one suitcase.
I can open all my own jars.
I get extra credit for the slightest act of thoughtfulness.
If someone forgets to invite me, he or she can still be your friend.
My underwear is €8.95 for a three-pack.
Three pairs of shoes are more than enough.
I almost never have strap problems in public.
I am unable to see wrinkles in your clothes.
Everything on my face stays its original color.
The same hairstyle lasts for years, maybe decades.
I only have to shave my face and nostrils.
I can play with toys all my life.
My belly usually hides my big hips.
One wallet and one pair of shoes: one color for all seasons.
I can wear shorts no matter how my legs look.
I can "do" my nails with a pocket knife.
I have freedom of choice concerning growing a mustache..
I can do Christmas shopping for 25 relatives on December 24 in 25 minutes.

Now you know: No wonder men are happier.


BTW: remember I told you about my holidays starting with nothing but rain... IT STILL DOES!

Symbol of Love?

How come their hobbies always cost so much more that ours? I for one don't spend any money on hobbies... I don't have any hobbies... My wife keeps me so busy with hers, I have little time to do the thing(s) I like... Like this blog for example: she thinks I am hard at work while I am trying to fill this post!!!

Man am I glad she has a business account! (be sure to read the prenuptuals)

DT Weekend

So another weekend another DT meeting... Ever had 13 women packed in one livingroom? Care to know where I am going to be? NOT AT HOME!!!

I needed an excuse, and one was handed to me: A birthday party!!! Yes, she will have me go alone, excusing herself and feeling guilty!!! HAHAHAHAHA!!!

AND HOLIDAYS STARTS RIGHT NOW... Supposely SUMMER HOLIDAYS, but it looks more like AUTUMN LEAVES!!! For me and the boys that means showers, grey skies and lots of wind to blow leaves around; For her that means new books, stamps and loads of paper!

Did I mention there are NO more scrapbook supplies in my living room??? Everything found it's place in the scraproom... And if there was no space I hung up a shelf!!!

Nevertheless I know I am going to have a nice weekend.

Today is our 5th wedding anniversary!

I took the day off to spend together with my "loved one's"... Guess what she agreed to?

To take over the shift of her co-worker... Thanks honey... In responce I volunteered to do the late shift at my work! (just kidding) This is not meant to be the day to celebrate our 1st lustrum, so we both agreed on tomorrow!

First both boys will attend school for the morning. After that we will go off (the four of us) to do something fun. And at night we (she and I) will go for a movie!!!


Hip Hip BubbAAAAH!
