RAK!

I hope I didn't mislead anyone into thinking we were building some huge mansion because that is so far from the truth!! I know the pictures make the future house look big, but in reality, we're building an 1850 sq. ft. home with a finished basement, so no, the house is not huge. It is modest! Eric and I decided that we do not want to be slaves to our mortgage payment. We want to travel and enjoy life so we're trying to stick to a strict budget. (Don't tell him this, but that doesn't include my scrapbook expenditures! That, I won't give up! LOL!)


What's your favorite song right now? I love the "Umbrella" song by Rihanna. It's got such a funky, cool vibe plus I love the lyrics:

You have my heart And we'll never be worlds apart
May be in magazines
But you'll still be my star
Baby cause in the dark
You can't see shiny cars
And that's when you need me there
With you
I'll always share Because
[Chorus]
When the sun shines, we’ll shine together
Told you I'll be here forever
Said I'll always be a friend
Took an oath I'm a stick it out till the end
Now that it's raining more than ever
Know that we'll still have each other
You can stand under my umbrella
You can stand under my umbrella (Ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella (Ella ella eh eh eh) Under my umbrella (Ella ella eh eh eh) Under my umbrella (Ella ella eh eh eh eh eh eh)
These fancy things, will never come in between
You're part of my entity, here for
Infinity
When the war has took it's part
When the world has dealt it's cards
If the hand is hard, together we'll mend your heart Because
[Chorus] When the sun shines, we’ll shine together
Told you I'll be here forever
Said I'll always be a friend
Took an oath I'ma stick it out till the end
Now that it's raining more than ever
Know that we'll still have each other
You can stand under my umbrella You can stand under my umbrella (Ella ella eh eh eh) Under my umbrella (Ella ella eh eh eh) Under my umbrella (Ella ella eh eh eh) Under my umbrella (Ella ella eh eh eh eh eh eh)
You can run into my arms
It's okay don't be alarmed
Come here to me
There's no distance in between our love
So go on and let the rain pour
I'll be all you need and more Because
[Chorus]

I want to do a layout for my kids based around the lyrics to this song. I want them to know that no matter what life deals them, I will always shelter them with the Umbrella of my love.

So, what is your favorite song right now? Leave a comment telling my what it is and why you love it and I'll have Connor draw a name out of his little trusty sombrero. I found these cool little journaling stamps at Archivers the other day. I'm a big supporter of hand journaling. Your handwriting is a treasure that you leave for your family. Anyway, they're See D's rubber stamps that mount to acrylic blocks. They're great b/c you don't have to give up the precise detail of the rubber stamps to see where you're stamping. If I'm not mistaken, each package comes with a little piece of foam mat. I can't tell you how awesome these foam mats are for setting under your paper while you stamp. It makes the image much more precise than stamping on a bare table. Here is a view of the front and back sides of the stamps. The quarter is there for size orientation. No, you don't get the quarter too. LOL! It goes back in Connor's piggy bank! ROFL!!

Heya gal!! I can't wait to see more pictures of the house building! I'll be living vicariously thru you. ;) *L*

I love that song by Rihanna, too- every time I hear it I think of my friend who was in the Army basic training. :) Just love the lyrics- and I know you're going to do a great job on that LO! Can't wait to see it!!!!

I don't know that I have a FAVORITE song right now- although I'm partial to a few songs on the new Rascal Flatts CD. The songs are Take Me There, Here, and Secret Smile. :)

Hi, Theresa! Thanks for leaving some lovin' over at my blog :) You are really sweet!

Oh, and of course, I'm up for a RAK any time, haha! I would have to say I am lovin' Justin Timberlake's What Goes Around Comes Around! Love the melody and that title couldn't be any truer! So, I am sure, all the love you're passing around will come back to you a hundredfold!

PS. I don't see much of you over at the CKMB - not that I am there much myself, haha! ;)
