getting pregnant… soon?

Today, my doctor thoroughly entertained me.ย She asked me, “Are you planning on getting pregnant soon?” I thought she was joking, but I guess it’s a valid question at the age of 26. I seriously laughed out loud. My answer to that question was, “Ummmm, how soon is soon?” ๐Ÿ˜‰ “Soon”, in my opinion, can mean next month, next year, or in ten years. It’s all relative, right?!

After visiting the doctor, I had lunch with my friend, Stephanie. It was good to catch up with her because I hadn’t seen her in a while.

Later that afternoon, I took the furkids to a dog park in Santa Clara. We had never been to that one before, so Maui and Hilo were definitely excited to explore new territory.

Hilo: "Wait up for me, Maui!"

This is Maui and Hilo's new Schnauzer friend!

"Mommy! Do you like my new 'ear'style? I did it all by myself!"

"Hilo and I want to know what's on the other side of the fence."

Maui and Hilo just melt my heart. They are so gentle, incredibly sweet, and well-behaved. I know that I say that all the time, but if you have ever met them, then you’d agree with me. Everyone that has ever met them can’t get enough of them because of their loving personalities. I’m truly ย blessed to have them as pets.

On a completely different note, I wanted to share some recent projects.

Did you know that I’m a big fan of the sketches over at Sketchy Thursdays?! I played with the latest sketch:

I didn’t just create one, but I created TWO! Why?! Well, because I’m teaching a class over at Memories Live On that teaches beginner scrapbookers how to use a sketch. I tried to keep them fairly “simple” because this is set up for a beginner’s class. ((Sorry for the unclear photos.))

Fairly “simple”? Or too detailed? What do you think? Personally, I think it’ll be a fun class! I’ll let everyone in on the details as soon as possible. ๐Ÿ™‚

Lastly, I wanted to share the news aboutย Imaginisce sponsoringย Mothers of Angels. If you are in the Utah area, please check out that link.

I’ll be back soon with projects to share.

  1. Maui and Hilo sweet?! Just sniff Hilo breath when he does that yawn/tongue thing or sniff Maui’s feet after she’s been outside.


    Sharks and Blackhawks! Let’s go SHARKS!

  2. scott — thanks for announcing to the world that my kids are freaks! haha. ๐Ÿ™‚ jk! even with the yawn/tongue thing AND the dirty feet, they are still sweet… and you know it to be true! ๐Ÿ™‚ just admit it, you miss them already!

    love the new layouts. maui and hilo need a slight trim to clean the look. yes! i’m totally obsessed. feeling tired today. cold cold weather.

  5. They are fantastic and your style shines through!

  6. oops i think I misspelled that..

  7. Love the pictures of Maui & Hilo!

    I think the LOs are perfect, as a beginner I’d love to see how to deconstruct the beautiful LO and know I could create it too!

    hey bay area BFF,
    It’s been too long since I’ve said hello- I love your doggies, and omg, Santa Clara- that brings back memories. Is Great America still there, wait, it’s Six Flags now huh? Your layouts are fabulous! LOL. My advice, wait on the kiddos! ๐Ÿ™‚ Stick with furbabies for now!!!!!!! xOxO

  9. Those are wonderful pics of the babies! I love dogs that just have those sweet tender personalities!! That’s totally how Noel is…unless another dog messes with her food and she goes off! But anyway those two layouts are wonderful takes on that sketch!!! Love them so much:) I think they’ll be great for the class! Hope you are having a great week, and yeah everyone’s idea of “soon” is really different!! Doctors crack me up sometimes too! The girl at the drs the other day(the nurse) asked me if I was married, and while she was asking me, she was bending her head down to see if I had a ring on…not everybody that’s married wears rings…even though I do. but still it was sorta funny to see her stretching her head down to try to see on my hand!

  10. your pups are cute cute cute!! you are so good to your fur-babies… I know you’d be an amazing mommy!! and super fun layouts!! those are some lucky ladies that are going to be attending your class!!

    Great layouts! I just delivered my second baby, who spent a week in the NICU after arriving 6 weeks early. At my first check up, my dr. asked when I planned to have my next one. Uumm…..this last one cost me $13,000 out of pocket, there will be no next one! llol…..

  12. super fun. dr’s can be good for a laugh, better than the alternative. love the take on the sketch. fun photos at the park. hugs.

  13. Jing-Jing

    You are 26, so soon means 4 years or something like that ๐Ÿ™‚ lol. You know Maui and Hilos are so so so cute!! and your layouts are even cuter, hee hee ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. julie

  15. callista

    thanks for posting the pics of your furbabies. Now i’ve had my fill of cuteness for the day. Love the layouts!

  16. You’ll be a GREAT MOM… whether it happens sooner or later! ๐Ÿ™‚

    LOVING the new LO’s. I think they are simple enough & perfect for a class! The FUN of the LO’s is in the mix of colors & patterns… you’re the perfect teacher for that! I’m sure your students will learn a LOT from you!

  17. Gorgeous projects Sarah…

  18. I don’t think the pages are too detailed at all! I used to teach scrapping classes and found that most people, even beginners, understand pretty well when you break a page down to it’s basic components (which you’ll be doing with the sketch). I think both pages demonstrate the versatility of the sketch.

    UGH…I soooooo miss teaching!! I hadn’t thought about it in a while. I wish there was a store near me still open.

  19. Oh…I meant to add on my previous comment that the fabric lettering on my art journaling page was freehanded. I just drew the letters onto the back of the fabric with a ball point pen and chopped them out ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. love the pages… and I too have been enjoying the ST sketches… they are fun… but I haven’t had much time too scrap… so I’ll have to archive the sketches for when I do… and enjoy yours… they really are lovely!!!

    {{hugs}} Michelle

    p.s. soon??? I say don’t worry about it… I was 43… slim chance yes… but I also believe it happens when it’s suppose to… enjoy life now while you’re young and when it happens you will be ready… and the timing will be perfect…

  21. Mo

    sarah…i love the simplicity of the white space and the busy focus in the middles!!! love em! so…how soon is “soon” for you?

  22. LOVE the layouts! They’re both gorgeous!

    Doctors can be so nosy, right? ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. Oh — Modern Family…it probably hasn’t aired on your coast yet. So funny…so sweet. Poor Lily. ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. Kat

    love the layouts! i think they are perfect for a beginning class…that sounds like a class that i would love to take! ๐Ÿ™‚

  25. Hi Sarah,

    Pics of your babies are so cute, they look like they have awesome personalities even in their pics. Doctors can be so funny that way, or you tell them there’s absolutely no way you could be pregnant and they still make you take a pregnancy test just for good measure. Your layouts are GREAT!! Lucky beginners that get to take your class. Thanks for sharing.

  26. LOL!! So are you going to get preggo soon? LOL!! Eeekkkk… you furkids are so so cute!! I love seeing them. Always love your color choices… so beautiful!!

  27. deftoned

    Oh yes, I do miss those nuts! But alas, I am trapped in a world of exercising, beer, hockey, and medicating. And being poor! I wanted to head down there this weekend, but I decided to give you guys free time.

  28. Oh what sweet pups…I so adore them!!!! I love the Lo’s…you did a Fabby job them and this has inspired me to break out and try this Sketch!!!

    Have a great day sweet friend!!!

  29. Love your post!
    I gave you an award on my blog!

  30. loooove the new layouts and the photos of the furbabies! ๐Ÿ™‚ I DO think a little sarah baby would be awfully cute but… maui and hilo would be SUPER jealous of it, lol! ๐Ÿ™‚
