Just a test

I’m testing a new plugin. We’ll see how well it works.

Wish me luck on it!!

Oh, and take a guess and see if you can figure out what I’m testing ūüėõ

Picture Post Wednesday

Sarah’s got makeup on?

Originally uploaded by SarahsMF21

The goal of picture post Wednesday is to post a picture, of yourself, each Wednesday, to see if, and how much you change, week to week, month to month, year to year, etc

Idea by -Sarah-

Holy crap! I was up by 9 am, and had make-up on by 9:30. What the heck was up with me?

I’m definitely feeling a bit better about myself, seeing this picture. My face is still chubby as all get out, but hell, it was like that when I was 95 pounds. How the heck am I going to get rid of them with that? Eh, they’ll slim down once summer starts to kick in.

Ethan’s first major punishment

I had to punish Ethan, and I mean really punish him. He was just ripping things out of Emma’s hands (I’m babysitting for a few hours), and he wouldn’t listen when I told him to share, that it was Emma’s turn, and that he had plenty to play with. So, he got a time-out on the couch. It was punishment for him, because he couldn’t lay down, he couldn’t see the TV, and all that good stuff. Definitely worked for him.

I’m needing ideas for things to do, though, graphics wise. I can’t think of anything. I’m wanting to do a theme week, but the love theme is already done, and will be overdone by Valentine’s Day. I’m definitely going to be doing a “Good Luck” week, the week before Ethan’s birthday (March 17th), and a “Ray of Sunshine” theme week the week before Madison’s birthday (June 20th), but other than that, I have no idea what I’m going to do. HELP!!

Also, suggestions on themes, on sigs, on adoptables, on ANYTHING graphic-wise would be most excellent.
