Some of my favorite shots of London!!

I got home yesterday from being in London for a almost two weeks and since my body thinks I'm still there I have been up since 3am!!! LOL Paul kept telling me to just relax and stay and in bed but I couldn't! I counted the pleats on my curtains about five times, thought about how the room would look if I changed the bedroom a different direction, was thinking about new songs on you tube I could add, and had a ton of thoughts in my head for a new adventure that I'm working on!!! I can't wait to tell you about it!!

I wanted to show you some of my favorite pictures that I took. I have a ton more but I don't want to bore you with them all! LOL

Let me know if you want to see more!!! thanks for letting me share of my pictures with you! Hugs, Suzy West

Grateful for the beauty around me

The tragedy that has happened in Japan has saddened me so much!
One day everything is good...the next day...everything is gone!
It's unbelievable to think that this could happen anywhere and to anyone.
I feel especially grateful for all the beauty that is around me. I think I take it for granted and that needs to stop!

Today...make a decision to appreciate your surrounding. Enjoy the streets, the lights, your home, your church, schools, stores, parks, the grass, the trees, your family & friends....everything!

I appreciate you!!!
hugs, Suzy West

London...Sierra...Jeremy...and top 10 list!

I'm having fun playing with tons of WOW embossing powders!!!
I love how easy they are to use and how they don't get all over the place!!
I'm excited to get to play with them a lot in London and to do this mini project for make n' takes.
I have a lot of exciting things coming up!!!
It's been a little crazy since it all seems to be happening at the same time!
I'm truly grateful for all the fun opportunities!

Wanted to update you all on Sierra
Thankfully she's feeling good right now! We are meeting with the surgeon soon to discuss dates and to prep her for the big day.
It feels kinda crazy saying that because all her life we knew that one day this day would come and we talked about it a lot but now...they day has really come.
She's been a real trooper!!! She broke down the other night because she was a little scared but mostly because she didn't like the fact that she would have to be on penicillin twice a day for two years! That really upset her!! I told her the time would go by fast so not to worry!
I know things will be a lot better for her! Please keep her in your prayers!

On other news! I'm so excited about this!!!!
My going to PROM!!! Yes, you heard it...MY SON is going to prom!!!
I can't believe this day came too!! We always knew this day...blah blah blah! LOL
If you know my son, you know that my guy doesn't do dances. He's never attended one. Why? He thinks they are boring! He just doesn't like them!! So for him to's a huge thing for the West family!! LOL

I won't be here when he goes to prom!!! I'm so sad about it!!
I'll be in London! I'm forcing my daughter to take pictures! I'm sure I'll need a few moments to cry my eyes out because my heart will be so full....okay...crap...I'm crying now just typing this (Pull it together woman!LOL) but will be excited too!!!

So anyways, I'm grateful for a lot of things this week! I read Sarah's blog (poor thing has been super sick)...and she inspired me to write my top 10 things I'm grateful for!
So they are.....

1. insurance--I'm so grateful that we have excellent insurance and that we see the best dr.'s!!! Angel's surgery will be done at Stanford Hospital!
2. my bed--I love after a long day I can just sink my body into my bed!
3. family--I love that I have people that love matter what!! I trust them with my entire heart and life!
4. old pair of jeans--Love my jeans! I've had them for a while and they feel so yummy! Not tight...not loose...just perfect!
5. scrapping--I love when I get to hang out with all my friends and get my scrap on!!! I can't wait til' Saturday to see a lot of friends!
6. California weather--I feel so lucky to live in a place that even though I sometimes complain about the's a thousand times better than in other places!!
7. DVR--I love that I can watch my favorite tv shows whenever I feel like it!!
8. You tube--I LOVE you tube!!! I have a play list of all my favorite songs!! Including all GLEE!!! Oh ya!!
9. Easter candy--in case you didn't know...Easter has the best candy!!! I love my favorite chocolate bunnies! YUMMY!
10. LUCKY CHARMS--oh how I love thee!!! I always have to have a box of this!!!

Okay so that is my list!!!!

My uncle turns 103!!

I'm so excited about celebrating my uncle's birthday!!! He is turning 103 years old next week!!!
This man is amazing!!!
If you saw him in real'd want to put him in your pocket! LOL He's about 4 ft. 8 in. tall! He came to the states from El Salvador in 1944 with the stipulation that he had to join the army. He joined and fought in world war 2!
He also had to have a trade. He took after his dad and was a tailor.
My uncle made a name for himself and did the tailoring for Frank Sinatra, Ronald Reagan, and other famous people.
My uncle believes that education is very important and recently started meeting with the kids in the family because he wants to help them go to college.
This is a picture of him when he turned 100! The city wanted to honor him and he was featured in the news paper.

Love him and feel so lucky to have him in my life.
