Saludas de Southern Hemisphere! Jen and I arrived safely in Argentina. We are in the city of Mendoza right now which is in the foothills of the Andes. Tomorrow we head back to Buenos Aires.

So far, a great time is being had. Argentina is a beautiful country... the people are so friendly, the food is great and the sunshine even better!! Yesterday we took a bus up into the Andes to the Chilean border. So breathtaking, literally with altitude sickness!!

It´s very exciting to have all these Spanish words come back to me. Thank God I am with a fluent speaker but those high school and college Spanish classes are coming in handy!!

Hasta Luego!!

Okay for some reason I haven't been super excited about the upcoming trip... but now it is less than a week away and I am GIDDY with excitement!! I just want it to hurry up and get here!!

I'm embarassingly excited about using my passport again and adding a continent to the list!! MUST.BREATHE...

Seven More Days...

This stamp is from one of my new sets, Time Well Spent. I didn't have a card in mind but was dying to color this image!! Not seeing any flowers like this right now... I walked 5 minutes to my car tonight and I was physically in pain due to the cold. 17 degrees!!! BUT 86 degrees in Buenos Aires where I will be in just seven days!!

I'm feeling guilty about this vacation, I'm not sure why. It's going to be relatively inexpensive vacation but it feels very extravagant!! I am considering making a job change to working in the schools full time... it would be a HUGE pay cut but it is work that I LOVE!! I'm really torn...

I forgot to take a picture of the Valentines that I made. I only send them to my nephews and niece so I didn't make many.

Apparently, I have none because I am about to share two things... first I just beat my highest Tetris score... I just scored 43,605 points and 208 lines.

Second, there have been rumors that NKOTB are planning a reunion tour... and I fully plan on being there. But, this just in, my brother-in-law is friends with one of the New Kids brothers (to which I say, Mike, where were you 18 years ago... and then I say HOLY.CRAP, that was 18 years ago!!!)...anyway, my sister reported to me today that she was talking to the brother who said he could help me out and GET.ME.BACKSTAGE. After talking to my sister, I promptly called my friend, Bonnie, who was as excited as I was about the whole thing as she would be at the concert with me.

I was watching some NKOTB vidoes on Youtube and they sure look and sound different, if you know what I mean, to my more mature ears and eyes. But if I was standing in front of Jordan Knight... I would be transformed back into the big haired, braces wearing kid who will one day be Mrs. Jordan Knight... and that my friends is... the right stuff!
