This quote touched me this morning. Thought I would share it with you!

Only as high as I reach can I grow, only as far as I seek can I go, only as deep as I look can I see, only as much as I dream can I be. - Karen Ravn

Hope you are having a Fabulous day! Stay Warm!!

Did ya miss me?

Hello all! Wow it has been a long time since my last post.
Time to get back at it!

We have had a few ups and downs over the last few months.
I think we are getting it all worked out now.
So time to get back at my posts. Did ya miss me? I'm BACK!

I am getting really excited for the holidays. I just to decorate.
I know it is a bit early with Thanksgiving still 2 weeks away,
but today I took all the Christmas decorations out of storage and set up the outside lights. Don't give me any crap {Jen} - it was nice outside today! We don't know how long that will last!!  :~)

Speaking of being nice out today, Wes and I played in the sandbox this afternoon. We are in Minnesota, right? What a beautiful day! No one tell mother nature it is November, I am liking this weather!

Short and Sweet today, lots to do! Hope you are enjoying the beautiful day!

My little boy is now in kindergarten! How does that happen so fast? It has been an emotional couple of days for this mama!

First day of school, Wes is SO EXCITED, he very easily gets up and gets ready. As I am driving him to school he remembers his bus number, he remembers where his locker and class room are. He is so excited he can barely stay in his seat!

Hold it together a little while longer I tell myself, don't let him see you cry.

I ask him if he wants me to walk him to his locker, no he says he will walk in himself. So I drop him off and off he goes without looking back.

And I fall apart! A mess for the rest of the morning!

Then the bus...oh godness it is 3:00 and he is getting on the bus. I worry again...will he get on the right bus and will he get off at the right spot? Then I find out my niece gets on the wrong bus - OMG I am really nervous now!!

Needless to say he makes it home safely and had a really good first day. He was fast alseep on the couch by 8:00, he must have had a busy day!

Day 2 he wakes up...Mom did I miss the bus?? No Wes I am going to drive you to school today. That's OK mom, I want to ride the bus. So off he goes to ride the bus to school hopping to the bus stop, he is so excited he is dancing as he waits for the bus.

I think we are going to make it thru kindergarten!

Your life is right now! It's not later! It's not in the time of retirement. It's not when the lover gets here. It's not when you've moved into the new house. It's not when you get the better job. Your life is right now. It will always be right now. You might as well decide to start enjoying your life right now, because it's not ever going to get better than right now -- until it gets better right now!

My wish for you

My wish for you is that you succeed beyond your wildest imagination. That you find love in places that astound you. And that you have friends who call you "just because." I dream that you go barefoot more than you wear shoes. That you play as hard as you work. And that you laugh more than you cry. I want you to set the bar high, but not too high. To reach for the stars, but with your toes on the ground. And to never, ever stop dreaming. But most of all I wish for your happiness. -TUT

Happy Mother's Day!

To all the beautiful, wonderful, AMAZING mothers I know and to my mom, Laurie and Jackie - HAPPY MOTHERS'S DAY!!

"Happy Mother's Day" means more
Than have a happy day.
Within those words lie lots of things
We never get to say.

It means I love you first of all,
Then thanks for all you do.
It means you mean a lot to me,
And that I honor you.

But most of all, I guess it means
That I am thinking of
Your happiness on this, your day,
With pleasure and with love.

My Mom Gail

Adam's mom Laurie

Adam's Step mom Jackie
Hope you all have Fabulous Day!

Love, Sabrina

Today is a special day for 2 reasons (there are many other reasons but I will only list two).
2 very special anniversaries today!
Unity Stamp Company is celebrating being in business for one year! Congrats Unity! You are amazing people and a company that is backed by love and the desire to give to others, you are a true inspiration... I love you guys!!
Adam and I are celebrating our 10 year anniversary today! It is hard to believe, the time has gone so fast. We have accomplished so much and have so much to be thankful for.
Happy Anniversary sweetie - I Love you!
We are off to the swimming pool for a nice relaxing soak in the pool and hot tub, then off to Shipwreck Beach where we will renew our vows using Hawaiian ritals of cleaning the past to have a fresh new start. I am SO excited! And then off into the sunset, literally, we will be going on a sunset dinner cruise to the Na Pali Coast.
This is a Perfect day!
Life is Good!

Amazing Waterfall!

Have you ever seen anything this powerful be so natural and tranquil? This is the Wailua Falls, a 80 foot waterfall made famous by being in the opening scene of Fantacy Island. It was unbelievable to see in person, I hope my little video does it justice.

A short post tonight - the Hawaii Sun the got the better of me!

We have decided that Hawaii is the most beautiful place on earth!! It is SO worth the 14 hours we spent in 3 airports! Today we spent the day driving around the east and north sides Kauai and taking in all the sites. Here are a few pictures of what we saw.

View from the living room of our condo, we are living in Heaven this week!

Water Caves, we have never seen anything like it!
The most breath taking beaches!

More picture to come! Wish you were here!

Love, Sabrina

Counting down to HAWAII

It is so hard to believe that we leave for our big trip tomorrow! We head for the airport bright and early in the morning for a long day in 3 different airports. Hawaii here we come!! As I wrap up the final details of our trip I finding myself getting a little sentimental. We will be renewing our wedding vows while we are there. It is hard to believe that 10 years ago at this time I was finalizing the details for our wedding!

So I had to get out the wedding photos and share them with you...

Here's some more!

The In-Laws! Adam's Dad - Bill, StepMom- Jackie, Brothers Dan, Joe & Marcus and sister Adrie Lere
My crazy family Step dad - Jim, Mom - Gail, sisters Stacey, Jen, Nicky and Brothers James, Shawn and Nathan

And last but not least, Adams sister Charlene, Katie & Shelby , Mom - Laurie and Jeff

Can you believe how young (and SKINNY) everyone looks! What a Fabulous day!! And it has been a fabulous 10 years! I look forward to the next 10!

Love, Sabrina

Thank you Thank you!

Will you all forgive me?! Where has this last month went?

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! to all our family and friends that came to Wesley's birthday bowing party. I hope amist the Chaos! you enjoyed yourseves. I have decided while it was wonderful to not to have to cook and clean, 10 kids under the age of 5 is too many little ones for a party at the bowling alley!!
Wesley had a good time however and he received some great gifts, so again - thanks for coming!
Here's a few pics of the fun!

And thank you to those that sent the cards (he still checks everyday to see if any of the mail is for him).
Have a FABULOUS Easter weekend!
Adam, Sabrina & Wes

Welcome new friends!

Welcome lovers of scraping, stamping and all things crafty. And lovers of Angela and Unity Stamp! Thanks for paying me a visit. I am very new to this craft, you can even call me a stamping virgin :) I have never thought of myself as crafty. However I am VERY EXCITED to be learning.
I have made 2 birthday cards, 1 shower card, christmas cards and have started my first scrapbook page. I want to THANK YOU for all the inspiration you have given me thru your projects. I enjoy visiting you all thru the blog hop and the wonderful posts highlighting your work on the Unity Stamp Company blog. I do have to say that it is your projects and wonderful ideas that have made me decide to give this {possibly new addiction} a try.

I'd like to share with you what I have done thus far, I know a bit elementary - I have so much to learn but am loving it so far!

My first ever project.

Second attempt to be crafty! A bit better I think...

Most recent.

My favorite quote ever is
Happiness is Something you CREATE! -unknown

Hope you have a FABULOUS weekend!

Is it SPRING yet?

Hey everyone!
It has been so long since my last post...winter has been so long! January was such a COLD month that we stuck pretty close to home. I am loving this February rain tho! It feels like spring - wishful thinking...I know it is still weeks away. But it is much better than below zero!

A few things have happened recently. We booked our plane tickets to HAWAII! Its official, we are going to Kauai the last week of April to renew our vows and celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary! I am SO excited! Wes is pretty excited too, he will go with us. I am sad none of our family or friends will be able to go but it is a very expensive trip so I understand. Theres still time - let me know if you change your mind :)

I joined facebook and have connected with long lost family & several friends from school. That has been really great. It is so much fun to see what everyone is up to and see pictures of their family. If you are on facebook add me as a friend! If your not join, it is fun! My profile is on the left.

I became an auntie twice {kinda}! Adam's sister Katie & Tyler had a beautiful little girl Payton Leiann was born Jan 27th at 1:13pm, 7lbs 5oz, 19in and Jamie & Leanne had a very handsome little boy - Camden Tyler was born Dec 2nd 9:15am. 9 lbs 8 oz, 21.5 in. Wish I had pics to share. I left my camera home - what kind of auntie am I? Makes me want another baby :) Except the lack of sleep part they have both reminded me of!!

Wesley is doing really well. He is going thru a growth spurt, the kid has grown out of all his pants AGAIN! Jen, I have more jeans for you! He is already counting the days until his birthday. March 10th - 5 years old, where has the time gone? I am already starting to panic about kindergarten being right around the corner. My BABY cannot be going to kindergarten soon!!

I would love to hear what you all have been up to. I often wonder who's reading this. Leave me a comment below by clicking on the comment link below this post and leave me some love as it is called in the blog world.

More later, have a FABULOUS week!
