I am writing from a nice little hotel room in Sandusky, Ohio! We passed Chicago yesterday and did a very nice drive through Michigan on Hwy 12 (really nice!!) and then went into Detroit. And here I have another little episode to tell you Gosh, it was crazy!!
So we are driving around in town and our (peeeeep) GPS is once again “recalculating – recalculating” and maybe you know where Detroit is, right at the boarder to Canada….. So our GPS is at 80% and we are not paying that much attention and oooops, we are at the driveway to the customs…. There is no way to turn around so I pull down my window and we ask some people in official clothes – bad move!!! NEVER ever ever do that!! The ugly lady asks us all seriously to answer some questions like, where we are from and stuff like that. She tells Adrian to turn off the car and give her the keys!! Are you kidding me?? We just want to turn around!!! Adrian gets all mad and that is not helping either… They tell us to park the car and go into customs (or whatever that little house was….) There they want to see our ID’s and we wait and wait! They are all starring at us all with that mean face…. About a half an hour later we were told to leave and that was the end of that experience in Detroit. Do we really look all badass-like?? I don’t think so… So if you ever go to Detroit, always be careful NOT to take the wrong turn hahaha
We also tried to camp again… The last time, maybe you can remember, it rained all night long and everything got soking wet… This time we started our day with a nice breakfast at the hotel. We put new ice into the ice chest and started driving. Everything was great until we found our very nice campspace (we were the only one – we found out later why….) and began to put together the tent. I then brought out the sleeping bag. It was soaking wet… Not the whole thing but the edges and corners…. I started to take out everything out the trunk and then I see what went wrong: we left the ice chest lid open. The small one to let out the water……. It was open all day long and EVERYTHING was wet. We wanted to bring the sleeping bags to the laundry room to dry them but that was already closed. Great! So I took out my pink hair dryer and started drying those sleepingbags………… lalalalalaaaaaaaaaa
A couple hours later we found out why we were the only ones on the site – it got FREEEEEZING cold that night. We were all cuddled up together, had two sleeping bags, were wearing thick sweaters and long pants, but I guess that was not good enough. We woke up a couple times, always freezing and shivering….. But we made it! We decided now to mostly sleep in motels/hotels until the weather gets warmer and dryer We will see
Some more pictures – still from the westcoast – since I haven’t uploaded the new ones………….. I love this country and I am SO pround to be a Green Card holder YAY!!

BlueMoonScrapbooking posted a blog post with one of my DT layouts for September! See the original post HERE!
I was doing this layout about a dog that I love. It is apparently not my own dog but he belongs to a very very good friend of us :) His name is Quincy and he is such a sweetheart I wanted to make a nice little memory about our summer plays at the pool…. Can’t wait to play with him soon
Lately I really like to use a lot of white space on my layouts. Also like to clutter and reuse some of my non-scrapbooking stuff
I used some 7Gypises paper here and cut out the bushy thing Also did some receiceling on this one: Arizona Ice Tea label hihi
Also used some of my own stamps……. and some 7Gypsies rubons. love em!!
